        Views in Australia or New South Wales, & Van Diemen's Land Delineated, in Fifty Views, with descriptive Letter Press

      London: J. Souter, 1825. Oblong folio, handcoloured lithographed title and 48 fine handcoloured aquatint views after drawings by Joseph Lycett, with descriptive text (final leaf neatly laid-down), two folding maps; some offsetting, modern half morocco with spine gilt lettered and decorated in compartments, edges fully gilt. A pivotal work in Australian landscape art. First edition of the great Australian plate book. This is a fine copy of the most important work on antipodean landscapes.A landmark in the development of Australian illustrated books: this is a most attractive copy. Lycett's charming, highly-coloured views of New South Wales and Tasmania are justly famous today, and the book as a whole provides a remarkable visual record of Macquarie's Australia. Not only does it provide an historical snapshot of New South Wales and Tasmania in the early decades of settlement, but especially from the point of view of colonial architecture, it is a collection of remarkable importance. Lycett's incomparable plates record some of the colony's most important houses and country seats, and provide an invaluable contextual record of many lesser-known buildings and indeed building types.Lycett had arrived in New South Wales as a convict in 1814. Trained as a portrait and miniature painter in Staffordshire, his services as a professional artist were much in demand and he was soon working for the publisher Absalom West. He was appointed artist to Major-General Macquarie, the governor of New South Wales. Impressed with Lycett's talents, Macquarie sent three of his drawings to Earl Bathurst, Secretary of the Colonies (the dedicatee of the Views) who, it is supposed in payment, granted a pardon to the artist.Little is known of Lycett after the publication of the Views, which - with Wallis' Historical Account - marks the end of an era in the publication of Australian illustrated books. Macquarie's departure and the deaths of both Lewin and Lycett meant that the illustrated books to follow would be on a rather less ambitious scale. 'As far as we know Lycett produced no more work after the completion of his Views in 1825. In the Advertisement to the complete work, issued with the first part in July 1824, Lycett announced that... he intended to publish 'in the same size and manner, the Natural History of Australia'. It is not known what became of this project. In 1825 Lycett was in his early fifties and still, no doubt, the incurable alcoholic Commissioner Bigge reported him to be a few years before; it is probable that he did not live long enough to complete the project... The death, or at any rate, the silence of Lycett after 1825 marked the end of an era in Australian plate books. The lavish productions of Wallis and Lycett celebrated the expansiveness and the buoyancy of the Macquarie age. With Macquarie gone, Lewin dead and Lycett departed, artistic life in the colony was less robust in the 1820s. Australian plate books were still being published, but they were in most cases more humble productions than those of the preceding decade' (Australian Rare Books).

        [INTRIGUING ADVERTISING BROADSIDE FOR A WAX MUSEUM EXHIBITION, FEATURING STATUES OF WASHINGTON, JACKSON, LAFAYETTE, AND OTHERS, ca 1825]

      [N.p., likely Medford, N.Y. ca. 1825].. Broadside, 15 x 19 inches. Some foxing, edge wear, and wrinkling. A couple long closed tears and small holes, costing a small amount of text. Good. A striking and fascinating advertising broadside for a traveling wax figure exhibition featuring statues of Gen. George Washington, Gen. Lafayette, Gen. Andrew Jackson, three famous early American commodores (William Bainbridge, Isaac Hull, and David Porter, all commanders at one point in time of the USS Constitution), "An Elegant Figure, Representing the Goddess of Liberty," and Emperor Agustin de Iturbide, the late emperor of Mexico and his wife, both in elaborate dress. A manuscript addition identifies the time and location of the exhibit as the "Charles Stearnes Hotel in Medfard [Medford?] on Tuesday the 30 day of August 1825." Based on the date, and the military nature of the wax figures, this seems to be anticipating the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence the following year. Possibly a unique copy, with no record found in OCLC.

      Haverhill: Thomas Carey, 1825. Second Edition. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. Second American edition. Boards rubbed with loss of paper along fore-edge, ink name (A. Wallace) on front flyleaf, a few pages faintly foxed, mild transfer throughout. 1825 Half-Leather. 276 pp. 12mo. Black morocco spine with gilt titles & rules over marbled boards. Contemporary full calf, gilt rules. Originally published in London in 1724, and first published in the United States in 1814. A pseudonymous work attributed to Daniel Defoe based on scholarly comparison to his other writings. This edition removes the description of Magadoxa in Ethiopia, and adds a section treating piracy in the West Indies from 24 January 1821 to 16 May 1825, as well as an engraved frontispiece depicting pirates commandeering a ship (oddly, one is armed with a hammer, the other with an axe). Sabin 32197, Howes C-144. Neither Sabin nor Howes attribute this publication to 'Capt. Charles Johnson' as is stated in the 1814 edition - Howes actually credits the publisher as the compiler and cautiously references '[a]n earlier edition [which] may have appeared at Norwich 1814. We have compared the text of the 1814 and 1825 editions and find the volumes to be identical with the exception of the changes mentioned above. The type was reset and new plates were made, which makes the arrangement and pagination slightly different

        Here and There Over the Water:

      1825. first edition. A Regency Excursion to The Low Countries of Europe with Twenty-Four Magnificent Hand-Colored PlatesE[GERTON], M[ichael]. Here and There Over the Water: Being Cullings in a Trip to the Netherlands. By Omnium Gatherum. Drawn and Written by M.E. Esq. Engraved by Geo: Hunt. London: Geo: Hunt, 1825. First edition. Large quarto (10 11/16 x 8 1/2 inches; 272 x 215 mm.). 34 pp. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint plates and four uncolored aquatint plates of Waterloo memorials.Bound by Riviére & Son ca. 1900 (stamp-signed on lower turn-in) in full dark brown crushed levant morocco, covers with triple gilt rules, spine with five raised bands elaborately stamped and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board edges and turn-ins, top edge gilt, blue coated endpapers. Some very minor offsetting from the plates to the text. A very fine and large copy with superb hand-coloring, the plates and the text watermarked "1824". A scarce work, describing and illustrating a Regency excursion to the Low Countries. Egerton begins his tour at Ostend where he was stuck for a day as it was a Sunday. He took time to describe the people, the 'Custom House', the hotel and the 'Purgatory Gate' attached to the Church (destroyed in a fire later in the nineteenth century) before traveling the next day by 'Great Coach' and barge to Ghent observing the 'Belgic Military' various 'Diligences' and peasant costumes before continuing onto Brussels. Here he examined the Market Pavilion of the Prince of Orange before traveling on the the next leg of the journey which takes the artist once more to Ghent where he describes and illustrates the Exchange. Egerton then returns to Brussels to view the Palace of Schoonenberg; and then on to the main reason for his excursion: a trip to Waterloo taking in all the main sites of the battle including graves and monuments. Michael Egerton(also known as Omnium Gatherum flourished between 1821 and 1828 and produced a number of caricatures mainly of social comedy sporting scenes and jokes on the weather; almost all his work was engraved by George Hunt.

        Tete Humaine enchâssée dans une Idole que les Papous conservent dans l'interieur de leurs maisons

      Offak Bay or later on the voyage, 1825. Watercolour on laid paper, 482 x 310mm., large pencil sketch to the verso, some tears and nicks to the edges, small loss at lower left-hand corner not affecting either illustration; very good. Important Papuan idol. Exceptional original watercolour depicting a Papuan idol of carved timber topped by a human skull, noted in the caption as typically kept in the interior of their houses. The back of the sheet has a detailed pencil sketch of the same idol. The idol itself was acquired by the French expedition of Duperrey and is now in the Quai Branly in Paris, where it is described as a korwar sculpture and considered one of the "100 masterpieces" of their Oceania collection. The museum catalogue notes that it was acquired in Cenderawasih ("Bird of Paradise Bay") on the north coast of Papua New Guinea.Duperrey had first circumnavigated as a junior officer on the Freycinet voyage, experience which led to him being given command of La Coquille for the voyage of 1822-5. Dumont d'Urville was his second-in-command, and he in turn was later given command of two further Pacific voyages. The Duperrey voyage made many significant ports of call in the Pacific, including stays in Australia, Tahiti, and New Zealand. Under the naturalist René Lesson the voyage made many important ethnographic notes, particularly in Australia and New Zealand, and collected 'vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data' (Hill).The Duperrey circumnavigation spent a great deal of time on the Papuan coast in 1823. The expedition reached New Ireland in August 1823, before sailing past the Duke of York group and finally reaching Offak Bay, Waigeo on 6 September. Offak Bay was the main Papuan landfall of the voyage, and after much initial reserve from the islanders, soon a great market atmosphere of trade prevailed. The term "Papua" (Papous) used in the caption was at the time chiefly associated with the western tip of the New Guinea region by the French (Quoy and Gaimard in the Freycinet account limited the area to Waigeo and neighbouring islands), so the actual trading of the idol may date from the time spent in Offak Bay.A version of this image, rather altered, was included as an engraving in the official voyage account of Duperrey, in which the idol is depicted from three angles. The printed version has the extraordinary shell-eyes in both eye-sockets, where this watercolour only has one. Was the idol damaged before the engraving was made? Or, probably more likely, was the final engraving simply "improved" based on the original sketches? The drawing was made by Masson and Carnot, probably soon after the expedition's return.

        Small suite of work relating to the title-page vignette from the atlas accompanying the Freycinet official account

      [Paris], 1825. Group of two small drawings and two printer's proofs, full details below; very good. Designing the vignette for Freycinet's atlas. An intriguing group, including an original sketch and two working pulls relating to the vignette ultimately printed on the title-page of the Freycinet hydrographic atlas.The beautifully developed scene shows a woman next to a broken anchor and shaded by a willow, next to a marble plinth with a quotation from Esmenard's poem La Navigation, originally composed for the loss of La Pérouse, and much admired by his contemporaries:Venez, amis des arts, que le marbre fidèleGage de nos regrets dans ces paisibles lieuxRappelle La Pérouse et le rende à nos yeux,Oui sous les coups du sort, quand pour nous il succombe,De larmes et de fleurs je couvrirai sa tombe.In the background of the scene a vessel heels over to starboard, its rigging wrecked, and clearly sinking. The scene is no doubt meant to bring to mind the loss of Freycinet's ship the Uranie in the Falklands, but also makes an obvious link with La Pérouse himself, the fate of whom, at the time of publication, was still unknown in France.The four items are:1. Fragment of tracing paper showing the anchor design, 50 x 115 mm., tipped onto paper.2. Pencil and ink sketch of the main components of the design, 205 x 215 mm., on Whatman paper dated 1821.3. Proof before letters (in the technical sense, but also before adding the inscription to the plinth as well as other graphic detail) on laid paper, 200 x 235 mm.4. Finished proof printed on india paper and laid on slightly larger laid sheet, 230 x 260 mm.Several years ago Hordern House sold a small working archive relating to the typographic design of the title-page of the Baudin voyage atlas, and the present group makes a fascinating counterpoint, underscoring the care and oversight that went into producing these official accounts of the grands voyages. Indeed it seems quite likely, given Freycinet's central role in the production of both the Baudin and Freycinet voyage atlases, that this small suite sheets back to him personally.

        Trial of the Rev. Alexander Fletcher, A.M. before the Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Sense, and a Special Jury. By the Author of the "Trial of the Rev. Edward Irving, A. M."

      London: Printed for Knight and Lacey, 1825. First edition. Two hand-colored engraved plates. 8, 111, [1], 24 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Boards, uncut, rebacked with new black cloth spine. Early stab marks in inner margin, one signature sprung. The Jury of Scottish Common Sense Fletcher was the Scottish-born minister of the United presbyterian Church, who In April 1824, was prosecuted in the civil and ecclesiastical courts for breach of promise to marry Miss Eliza Dick. According to the DNB, "In the king&#39;s bench no verdict was given, but in the meeting of the United Associate Synod at Edinburgh he was suspended from the exercise of his office and from church fellowship. The trial and suspension provoked a spate of publications ..."&#11;&#11;One of those publications was this very amusing satire of the trail of the Reverend, before a "Court of Common Sense" with a &#39;special jury" consisting of a dozen illustrious Scots, including Sir Walter Scott, who was elected Foreman; Sir James Mackintosh; J. W. Croker; Thomas Campbell; Thomas Moore, Samuel Rogers; John Galt; and William Blackwood. Much of the fun consists of the conversations between the members of the jury, wehn called upon to examin a witness. The Jury&#39;s final verdict, after a deliberation of 5 minuttes, is delivered by the forman, Sir Walter Scott: "My Lord, we unanimously find the defendant Guilty upon the whole counts of the indictment."

Sucre remained in power until 1828. Sucre was killed by anti-Bolivarians in Ecuador two years later at age 34. The document is accompanied by a pair of certificates of authenticity from Alfredo Vigil, one of which concerns Bolivar's signature and the other authenticating Sucre's endorsement. "

        Encyclopédie méthodique. Histoire naturelle: Insectes

      Paris: Panckoucke, Agasse, 1825. Nine quarto volumes, comprising seven text volumes and two of plates, 397 numbered plates and one bis; bindings a bit scuffed and a few joints starting, lower spine end of two volumes snagged, a good set overall in contemporary quarter roan with red labels. Australian insects collected by Banks and Labillardière. The first major comparative study to illustrate Australian insects. Originally published over a span of almost two decades, this is an important work of entomology. A product of the high enlightenment, the Insectes was originally included within the famous Encyclopédie méthodique, which when complete formed a staggering total of 166 quarto volumes in total (making it a contendor for Diderot's and d'Alembert's Grande Encyclopédie). The breadth of the manifest learning is phenomenal, a testament to spirit of the enlightenment.Although the entomological works of John Lewin and Edward Donovan (both published 1805) have rightly been accorded iconic status in Australian natural history, this work by Olivier has not been given any real attention despite the fact that the first four volumes date from the last decade of the eighteenth century. Scores of Australian insects are illustrated here for the first time - by our count at least 98 are firmly attributed to Australia or Van Diemens Land - most of them by comparison with the originals in the collection of Sir Joseph Banks. A selection of New Zealand bugs and others from Pacific islands also derives from the Banks collection.Olivier built on the work of the scholars of his day, and was particularly reliant on the work of his contemporary Johann C. Fabricius, who printed the earliest textual description of any insects collected on the Endeavour voyage in 1775. Olivier's brief but gracious avertissement in the first volume here suggests that the primary resources for this work were the collections of Linnaeus, the descriptions of Fabricius, and the entomological riches of London. First among equals in London, Olivier notes, is of course Banks, who personally made valuable collections during his voyages around the world with Captain Cook ("La riche collection d'insectes que ce célèbre naturaliste à rapportés de ses voyages autour du globe, avec le Capitaine Cook..."). Not only did Banks himself collect on the voyage, but his interest in insects made Soho Square the paramount collection in London over the succeeding decades, as his friends and colleagues vied for the chance to supply non-descript insects; this is neatly shown by the fact that of the bugs from all parts of the globe, literally hundreds are described from specimens in the Banks collection. Olivier is known to have visited London in 1789, when he visited Banks, but also got in touch with other English collectors including the President of the Linnean Society James Edward Smith, the nurseryman from Hammersmith James Lee, John Latham and Thomas Martyn.Equally significantly, by the publication of the fifth volume (first issued in 1807) many of the new insects being added, including several more Australian specimens, are from the Labillardière collection, and must have been gathered by the famous French natural historian on the d'Entrecasteaux voyage.This work was the magnum opus of the French physician and keen entomologist Guillaume Olivier (1756-1814). Olivier personally collected widely in Europe and Asia Minor, famously embarking on a six-year expedition to Persia, returning to France in 1798. In 1800 he was appointed a Professor of Zoology at the Veterinary School at Alfort. He was a close friend of Fabricius as well as a patron and protector of another entomologist, Pierre André Latreille, at the close of the Napoleonic era. Olivier's own collection is now chiefly at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris.Entitlement to print and sell the Encyclopédie méthodique fell to several different publishers, not surprising given the scale of the work and its extended timeframe. The Insectes was earlier published in Paris by Baudoin, Lanneua & Desray between 1789 and 1808 under the sectional title Entomologie ou histoire naturelle des insects. In this set the first four volumes were published by Panckoucke between 1789-1792, the remainder by Agasse and his widow from 1811 to 1818.

        A Lithographic Sketch of The North Bank of the Thames, from Westminster Bridge to London Bridge, shewing The Proposed Quay, and some other improvements suggested by Lieut. Colonel Trench ? [Cover title]

      London: Hurst and Robinson and J. Dickinson, 1825. First Edition. Hand-colored lithographic panorama: 9 [of 10] plates by T.S. Baynes; lithographic folding map by Hullmandel after T. Dighton. 1 vols. Oblong folio, 10-1/2 x 26-1/2. ORIGINAL TAN WRAPPERS, printed label on front wrapper, disbound, slight cover chipping and soiling, but a fine, uncut copy in its original fragile wrappers, complete with map and leaf of letterpress; preserved in a custom cloth folding case, leather label. The North Bank of the Thames Panorama in Original Wrappers This splendid panorama consists of a series of views of the Thames, two of which (numbered at left 2a and 2b) show the same scene from St. Martin's to Waterloo Bridge with the proposed improvements and as it appeared in 1825. The image averages 7-1/2 inches in height, and totals 194 inches in length. Lacking in the present copy is the plate displaying the New Quay. In addition there is a two-page leaf of letterpress "Prospectus of Proposed Improvement on the Banks of the Thames" and a lithographed map "Plan of the River Thames ... Shewing the line of New Quay, as proposed by Colonel Trench, M.P." In 1824 Trench proposed constructing an eight-foot wide ornamental quay along the North bank of the Thames to improve the appearance of the river and relieve traffic congestion in the Strand. To win public support for the project, this panorama was produced, but opposition by tradespeople and others was sufficient to defeat the bill in the House of Commons in March 1825. Plans for an Embankment were subsequently revived, and work begun in 1864. Abbey, Life in England, 496; Hyde, Panoramania, 143
