Huggins-- William John
?South Sea Whale Fishery.? Aquatint engraving made in 1825 by Thomas Sutherland after a painting by William John Huggins official Marine Painter to his Majesty. Size:? 43,2 x 55,9 cm.?A representation of the Ships Amelia Wilson and Castor off the Island of Bouro with their Boats and Crew in the various processes of Fishing, shewing the manner the Spermacetti Whales are caught, also the mode of cutting them into the Ship, and Boiling the Oil upon the Deck.?The view illustrates the South Sea Whale Fishery, expressing the excitement, richness, romance, and brutality of the whaling trade. In this image the sailors of the HMS Amelia Wilson battle with numerous sperm whales with the island of Buru (Indonesia) ?in the background.The English southern whale fishery, commencing? from London in 1775, was conducted primarily in the mid to south Atlantic, but by the mid-1790s it had moved to the Pacific and Indian Oceans.? Initially, the move was limited to the areas off the coasts of Africa, South America and the east coast of Australia.? But by 1815 the trade had spread to the wider Pacific, encompassing areas in the south, central and north Pacific, as well as the rim areas between Japan and New Guinea. In the Indian Ocean the trade extended north to the Seychelles and into the waters around Timor and the Moluccas, such as to be seen on our engraving.It was the oil of the sperm whale they were after. Sperm whale oil was always in demand as it had a number of unique qualities.? It was more portable than gas and burnt more purely and with less smoke than animal, vegetable and other wha … [Click Below for Full Description]

About the explorers: James Cook (1728-1779) joined the British merchant navy as a teenager and joined the Royal Navy in 1755. He saw action in the Seven Years' War, and subsequently surveyed and mapped much of the entrance to the Saint Lawrence River during the siege of Quebec. This helped bring Cook to the attention of the Admiralty and Royal Society. This notice came at a crucial moment in both Cook's career and the direction of British overseas exploration … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wagner, Richard, Komponist (1813-1883).
An den Musikschriftsteller Auguste de Gasperini (1825-1869) in Paris, 11 rue Saint-Lazare, kurz vor der ersten Aufführung von "Tristan und Isolde" am 10. Juni 1865 in München: "Iseult se portant bien Tristan sera samedi soyez le bienvenu. Richard Wagner". Die ersten Sänger von Tristan und Isolde bei der Uraufführung waren Ludwig und Malvina Schnorr von Carolsfeld. - Der künstlerische Höhepunkt des Jahres 1865 war die von Wagner lange ersehnte Uraufführung von "Tristan und Isolde" am Münchener Hof- und Nationaltheater. Sechs Jahre hatte er auf diesen Moment warten müssen. - Nicht im WBV. - Seltenes Dokument zur Uraufführung.

JENKINS, James.
London L. Harrison and J. C. Leigh, 1825. Large 4to (page size 36 x 29cm, 14 x 11 .3/8 inches); uncoloured vignette to title, hand-coloured additional vignette title, hand-coloured arms of the Duke of Wellington, 51 hand-coloured aquatints on paper by Sutherland and others after W. Heath, plates with watermarks dated 1825, small, inoffensive library stamps to blank verso of title-page, top margin of p. 8 and lower margin of final page, none on plates, usual offsetting from plates, the occasional spot or minor soiling, small edges repairs to title-page, otherwise very good; near-contemporary half red straight-grained morocco gilt, all edges untrimmed, rubbed and mild soiling but still bright and sound, in all, very good-plus. 'As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years Jenkins' Naval Achievements has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of the accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable above all, and it is the pictures rather than the text to which the value can be attributed' (Roger Quarm, the National Maritime Museum). These Napoleonic encounters at sea are arguably the best and most attractive plates of their kind. Abbey (Life) 337. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rossini Ravenatte, Luigi
1825. Rossini (n. Rávena, 1790 - m. Roma, 1857), Arquitecto de la Academia de Bolonia, plasmó en sus Vedute las antiguedades romanas en magníficos aguafuertes Le Antichite Romana. Arquitectura Le Antichita Romane Diviso in cento tavole disegnate ed inc. Da Luigi Rossini Archº Ravennate. In Roma presso lautore Via Felice nº 138 Negozio Seudellari Via Condotti nº 19. Rossini publicó esta obra entre 1819 y 1823, en el último período neoclásico del siglo XIX. Inspirado en Piranesi y sus Vedutas dei Roma, publicado unos años antes. Los trabajos de ambos artistas han servido de inspiración a generaciones de arquitectos. Rossini registra fielmente las imágenes arqueológicas, con meticuloso detalle de luces y sombras. Muchos de los edificios de la antigua Roma que aparecen en esta obra desaparecieron posteriormente, y estos grabados nos quedan como el reflejo minucioso de una época perdida.   Formato (cm): 47x66

Early Crucial Periodical - South American Independence -No Copies in US Libraries - [PERIODICAL - INDEPENDENCE - PERU] El Republicano. Arequipa, 1825-1827. Folio. Original half parchment. An exceptionally rare complete run of the early crucial years of El Republicano, one of the first papers to emerge in Peru after the victory of Ayacucho. This copy also contains a number of equally rare supplements. Unlike most of the early newspapers which were short-lived, El Republicano lasted for 3 decades. El Republicano tried to be the spokesman for the democratic fervour of the victors after the battle of Ayacucho. The newspaper covered all the subsequent events focusing on the figure of Bolivar, the Libertador. As such it is an invaluable source for the study of the origins of the independence of Perú and Latin America. Although it was published during a long period, the first two years are the most significant as shown by the fact that the reprint done in 1975 only covers 1825-1827.

ALKEN, Henry.
[The seven ages of the horse].London, S. & J. Fuller, 1825. Oblong 4to (28.4 x 38.2 cm). With 7 hand-coloured etched plates. Red half morocco, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. [7] ll. A rare and important work by Henry Alken (1785-1851) showing the progression of a race horse through successive stages of life, at one point pampered and adored, at another rejected and scorned by man. In this re-working of The High Mettled Racer, Alken extends the stages of a horse's life from six to seven, in line with Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man. He shows the seven stages: the foal, the colt, the race horse, the hunter, the harness horse and the horse after all this, ending with the horse in his last days. The common thread in this series of plates is the evolution from a fiery and strong race horse to a poor, weakened old horse.Expert repairs to plate corners, light marginal finger-soiling, occasional browning, plates 2 and 4 with very minor marginal tears with two very small repairs to versos. Dixon 80; Mellon; 62; Tooley 48.

[AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY & LITERATURE] [SLAVERY & ABOLITION] [HEYRICK, Elizabeth, attr.]
New-York: James V. Seaman, 1825. First American Edition. Paperback. Attributed to the EnglishQuaker and abolitionist Elizabeth Heyrick, a pamphlet first published in London the previous year and harshly criticizing the "gradualist" abolitionists who had quite erroneously argued that if the slave trade was abolished, as it was in England in 1808, slavery would eventually die out as well. Heyrick's argument for complete and immediate emancipation was quickly reprinted in the United States as containing "some of the most persuasive appeals, and powerful arguments which we ever met with in relation to slavery" (p. [2]). The author concluded that "abstinence from West Indian sugar alone, would sign the death warrant of West Indian slavery" (p. 24). Though unattributed at the time of publication, the introduction to this edition also notes that the work is "said to be the production of a female in England" and the work "specifically targeted women and their emotions" (Elizabeth J. Clapp and Julie Roy Jeffrey, eds. "Women, Dissent and Anti-Slavery in Britain and America, 1790-1865" (2011), p. 113). DUMOND, p. 65; SHOEMAKER 20877. Octavo (23cm.); side-stitched self-wrappers; 24pp. Wrapper extremities rather chipped, faint dampstaining, the whole foxed and father toned, else Good to Very Good and sound.[Attributes: First Edition]

HIGGINS, William John.
South Sea whale fishery. A representation of the ships Amelia Wilson & Castor off the Island of Bouro - with their boats & crew in the various process of fishing, shewing the manner the spermacetti whales are caught, also the method of cutting them into the ship, & boiling the oil upon deck.London, W.J. Huggins, January 1, 1825. Aquatint (plate size: 44 x 56.5 cm), printed on unwatermarked wove paper (50.5 x 61.5 cm). Second issue(?) of a striking aquatint by Thomas Sutherland after a painting by the celebrated marine painter William John Huggins (1781-1845), original a sailor by trade. The spectacular scene shows the British whalers Amelia Wilson and Castor off Buru, Indonesia, with a dying sperm whale smashing a whale boat, crew "cutting in" blubber alongside one of the ships, and several whale boats giving chase.An earlier (and slightly smaller) version was published as South Sea Whale Fishery. The present print, with a longer title, shows the same scene "but differs in size and in execution of the sky and other details" (Ingalis). Ingalis suggests that "there may have been a third and perhaps even a fourth plate engraved of the same scene ...". In very good condition, with some traces of tape at the foot. Ingalls, Lothrop collection 104; Kendall Whaling Museum prints 188.
