        The Young Artists Companion or, Drawing-book of Studies

      London: S&J Fuller, 1825 The Young Artist's Companion or, Drawing-book of Studies and Landscape Embellishments: Comprising a Great Variety of the Most Picturesque Objects Required in Various Compositions of Landscape Scenery Arranged as Progressive Lessons. In modern hal brown leather with marbled boards, gilt tooling, original title label with gilt lettering and tooling to front center. Spine has gilt tooling, no title. Internally, new endpapers, bookplate to fpd, coloured frontis a little chipped at edges, [3], 4-6 pp, 40 plates, 7-10 pp, 12 plates, 11-15 pp, 12 plates. Some of the plates have 4 images but mostly 1, the last 12 are all in full colour and stunning!, plates are dated between Oct. 1st. 1819 and June 1823. Some foxing and minor browning throughout, as is normal. A great book just to sit and look at. Cox, landscape painter, whose standing as a drawing-master was reinforced by the publication of a number of successful manuals, beginning with Ackermann's New Drawing Book in Light and Shadow in 1809: although not credited to Cox, its range of subjects—Birmingham, Wales, and London—strongly suggests that he supplied the images, if not the text. This was soon followed by A Series of Progressive Lessons Intended to Elucidate the Art of Painting in Water Colours, a hugely popular step-by-step drawing manual which was first published in 1811, and reached its ninth edition in 1845. A Treatise on Landscape Painting and Effect in Water Colours (1813–14, reissued 1840) cemented Cox's reputation, and was followed by The Young Artist's Companion (1819–20, revised 1825) See ODNB for a full Bio.

All edges gilt, and gauffered at corners and at the spine. Pastedowns of light blue and red paste-paper.The binding is highly reminiscent of a "peasant" binding, but clearly is not one as these are generally understood: It is not vellum, not embossed; but yes, it is definitely handpainted and folk-art inspired. => A variant.

        Observations on Penal Jurisprudence...Part III

Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations on Penal Reform (1823) and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence...Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee. OCLC locates 3 individual copies and 9 copies bound with Roscoe's other volumes. Not in Sweet & Maxwell. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:1106.

Just a hint of rubbing to extremities, but the remarkably pleasing bindings essentially unworn and extremely lustrous. Two leaves with small closed tears, perhaps half a dozen pages per volume with a pinpoint fox mark in the margin, one page with a small stain, but a beautiful copy internally, unusually clean, fresh, and smooth, and with expansive margins. AN ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE SET. Although William Pickering began his legendary publishing career in 1820, it wasn't until 1825, after a move to larger premises, that he began to produce substantial numbers of high quality editions. In the latter year, Pickering began his association with the Oxford firm of Talboys and Wheeler, and with this association began the series of books known collectively as the Oxford English Classics. According to Keynes, "these handsome volumes were produced at the printing offices of the Oxford partners, but their general design shows clear signs of Pickering's predominating influence. The books are large octavos, well printed on ribbed paper with a fine Oxford device on the title pages." Keynes says that our 11-volume edition of Johnson and the four-volume Boswell's Johnson issued in 1826 "are the most valuable of the series," and singles out this edition of the "Life" for "special merit." Brunet calls the collection of Johnson's works "one of the best, and the most complete to this time." Our Large Paper Copy has stately margins that complement the luxurious bindings, pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The editor, Francis Pearson Walesby (1798-1858), was an Oxford professor. Although the title page of the first volume announces that the set will consist of nine volumes, a 10th and 11th were added, of "Parliamentary Debates." These are Parliamentary reports which Johnson began to make at the age of 32 for the "Gentleman's Magazine.".

Wellenlehre auf Experimente gegrundet. . . . 8vo. xxviii, 574, [2]pp. 2 printed folding tables, 18 folding engraved plates. Leipzig: Gerhard Fleischer, 1825. 209 x 130 mm. Half speckled sheep, marbled boards c. 1825, rebacked. Light foxing & browning, otherwise very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 766. The Weber brothers' Wellenlehre, containing experimental investigations of water and sound waves, was the first work to apply hydrodynamics to the circulation of the blood. In 1827 Ernst Weber, assisted again by his brother Wilhelm, described how the arteries' elasticity transforms the pulsing motion of the blood in the large vessels to a smooth motion in the smaller ones. In 1834, with his brother Eduard (1806-1871), Ernst became the first to measure the velocity of the pulse wave, which he showed to be much faster than the flow of the blood. Ernst Weber's work laid the base for the exact analysis of fluid motion in elastic tubes. DSB. Norman 2190.

(BOXING) Third state, the first being produced in 1818. 20 x 26 inches, matted and framed to 27 x 33 inches overall. Hand-colored aquatint with etched outline. . Snelgrove, British Sporting and Animal Prints, p. 48-9, color plate 5; Siltzer, pp. 319, 320, 325; Wilder, Sporting Prints, p. 178, color plate p. 179; Magriel, The Ring and the Glove, pp. 17-18 . A large and important depiction of an exhibition sparring match held in Fives Court, in London's Little St. Martin's Street, a tennis and fives court hired for such events, the participants, unlike a regular, bare-knuckle bout, being fitted with gloves ("mittens" or "mufflers"). The contestants shown were Ned Turner, "The Out-and-Outer", who had killed a man in the ring, serving time for manslaughter, and Jack Randall, "The Prime Irish Lad", unbeaten throughout 12 years of ring activity. The two had fought an epic fight in 1818, which Randall won to become the Lightweight champion. A large number of famous pugilists are pictured in the audience, not always accurately (Jem Belcher, the famed champion and the first real sporting celebrity in the modern sense, is shown, although he was dead), and it is a fair portrait of "The Fancy" as the mix of often raffish sporting professionals, and upscale spectators including nobility, came to be known.

      [Doncaster]: W. Sheardown and Son, [1825]. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Thomas Sutherland (Watermark '1825'). 12 1/8 x 16 5/8 inches. 16 7/8 x 22 5/8 inches. From the original 'Doncaster Gazette' series of the 'Winners of the Great St. Leger Series': a 'benchmark' sporting print in terms of the "quality of painting, engraving and printing" (Lane) "In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of pictures of the winners of the St. Leger starting in 1815... W. Sheardown and Sons of Doncaster published these brilliantly engraved prints (by Thomas Sutherland) in 1825... Messrs Fuller of London... continued the series until the mid-1840s. Fullers also published a similar series of Derby winners after Herring's paintings between 1827 and 1841... These prints provide a 'benchmark' in their quality of painting, engraving and printing which subsequent publishers attempted to emulate, but rarely with such success" (Lane) Herring is an outstanding and imaginative artist who at an early age showed an aptitude for handling both riding whip and pencil. At a young age, fate took Herring to the Doncaster races where he saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal- painting, in which he subsequently excelled. In addition to being a successful horse painter, Herring made his livelihood as a coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush.

To it is prefixed a Gaelic grammar, and there is a short historical appendix of ancient names, deduced from the authority of Ossian and other poets. Armstrong's dictionary will always be prized by Gaelic scholars, but it was partially eclipsed, three years after its appearance, by the publication of the still more comprehensive ‘Dictionarium Scoto-Celticum,’ compiled under the direction of the Highland Society of Scotland (2 vols. 4to, 1828).

        View of the landing at Rangoon of part of the Combined forces from Bengal and Madras, under the Orders of Sir Archd. Campbell, K.C. B. on the 11th of May 1824

      London: Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, [1825]. Hand-coloured aquatint plate engraved by H. Pyall after Moore. In excellent condition. Image size: 10 x 14 5/8 inches. 13 x 16 5/8 inches. 13 7/8 x 19 inches. A beautiful plate from Moore's work "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore was a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein River, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines."

London: Thomas M'Lean, 1825. Fourth edition (plates dated 1820), complete; preceded by those of 1821, 1822, and 1823, but of greater rarity. Tall octavo (10 x 8 1/4 in; 254 x 210). Title leaf (verso blank), and forty-two hand-colored engraved plates, twelve with multiple images. Contemporary half crimson morocco over paper boards. Original red leather title label lettered in gilt to upper board. Small bookplate to front free-endpaper. A fine copy of an extremely scarce album by Henry Alken.This edition of 1825 has not been seen at auction since 1968. The last copy of the first edition of 1821 came to auction in 1970; the 1822 edition in 1969. OCLC records only one copy of the 1821 edition held in library holdings worldwide (at the British Library) and three copies of the edition of 1823. There are no copies of the edition under notice in institutional holdings across the globe.While Siltzer notes an Alken Sketch Book of 1820 (34 plates), and the Scraps... edition of 1822, he makes no mention of an 1825 edition. It is not in found in Tooley or Abbey in any edition.The "Scraps" include equestrian, hunting, dog, bowling scenes, etc. In short, each print features a sporting tableau.Of Alken, Siltzer wrote, "It took but a short time for the leading art publishers of London to recognize his genius and to discover that they had 'struck a reef' of both artistic and financial value, and the well-known firms of Thomas M'Lean, S. and J. Fuller, and Rudolph Ackermann were not slow to reaping full benefit... It appears that Alken himself occasionally engraved plates, and thus added to the facility of production..."Cf. Siltzer, p. 71.

        Essays on Landscape Gardening, and on uniting picturesque effect with rural scenery: containing directions for laying out and improving the grounds connected with a country residence

      London: Printed by S and R. Bentley for J. Taylor, 1825 [text watermarked 1824-1825, plates watermarked 1825]. Quarto. (12 3/4 x 10 inches). Half- title, uncut. 6 aquatint plates (3 hand-coloured, 3 printed in sepia [2 of these with overlays]). Original paper-covered boards, paper title label to backstrip, green morocco backed box, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. A fine, unsophisticated copy of a beautifully illustrated work on the art of landscape gardening as practiced in England at the start of the 19th century. In the preface to the present work, Morris acknowledges his inspiration to have been the works of Humphry Repton, Uvedale Price, William Gilpin and to a lesser extent William Shenstone, William Mason, Richard Payne Knight and Thomas Whately. Taking the "instructive hints" from these disparate sources, Morris here offers essays on eight aspects that need to be considered when laying out an English country garden and estate, together with six plates that further illustrate his points. As in the works of Repton, two of the plates contain overlays showing the landscape before and after Morris's improvements. Morris, a plantsman and surveyor approaches his subject from a more detailed and practical point of view than his illustrious predecessors. For example, where Repton had suggested a hillside be moved and trees planted, Morris suggests a similar scheme but also lists the trees and shrubs which would be suitable. Given this attention to horticultural detail, it is unsurprising that Morris's other works included Flora Conspicua; a selection of the most ornamental flowering, hardy, exotic and indigenous trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, for embellishing flower-gardens and pleasure-grounds (London, 1826) and The Botanist's Manual. A catalogue of hardy, exotic, and indigenous plants, according to their respective months of flowering (London, 1824). Abbey Life 40.

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Philadelphia: Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], 1825-1828-1828-1833. 4 volumes, folio. (15 x 12 inches). 27 hand-colored engraved plates by Alexander Lawson (11 after Titian R. Peale, 15 after A. Rider, and 1 after J.J. Audubon and A. Rider). Extra-illustrated with 5 uncoloured engraved plates in vol. IV. (Usual paper toning in vol. IV, minor offsetting in vols. II-IV, short repaired tear to an uncoloured plate in vol. IV). 19th-century black half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, the compartments bordered in gilt with double fillets, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. A very fine set of the first edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, inscribed by Prince Bonaparte to his cousin and with additional uncoloured states of the plates in volume four. Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work."A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States.""The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I..." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson).That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time. Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This fine set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume. We are aware of the existence of only one other inscribed set of Bonaparte's Ornithology to have appeared on the market in the last 30 years, inscribed to the Count Charles de Chatillon.

        A New American Atlas containing Maps of the Several States of the North American Union, projected and drawn on a uniform scale from documents found in public offices of the United States and State Governments, and other original and authentic information by Henry S. Tanner

      Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1825. Folio. (23 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress half-title, 1p. index and 18pp. text. Engraved title with vignette of the "First Landing of Columbus in the New World, 21 fine hand- coloured engraved map sheets (16 maps on 16 double-page sheets; 1 map on one folding sheet; and 1 map on 4 double-page sheets), some expert restoration to corners. Expertly bound to style in half brown straight- grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt rules, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, contained within a modern red morocco-backed cloth box, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat tooling in gilt. A fine copy of the improved second edition of "one the most magnificent atlases ever published in the United States" (Ristow). Tanner's New American Atlas contained the most accomplished series of maps of America that had yet appeared in an atlas. Of the greatest importance were the maps of American states, which were highly detailed and brilliantly coloured. While New York and Florida each had their own dedicated page, other double-page sheets showcased multiple states at a time. As the title claims, these maps were drawn up using a careful combination of original surveys and the best existing published sources. The evident high cost of production meant that the publishers took the decision to issue the maps originally in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823. A first collected edition was published in 1823, and this second revised edition appeared in 1825. The maps, all of which are carefully hand-coloured, include a world map, 4 maps of continents, a map of South America on a large folding sheet made up from two joined sheets (the index calls for two separate sheets), a map of North America on 4 sheets and 11 double-page maps of the various States. The very large map of North America is of particular beauty and note. Wheat writes: "This map was a landmark - a great cartographical achievement ... Tanner made good use of a large number of intervening map, those of interest here being Humboldt's 'New Spain,' Pike's various maps, Long's map, and 'Pedro Walker's Map of New California ... This 1822 map of North America was the progenitor of a long line of famous maps" (Wheat, II: pp. 82-87) Contemporary reviews were favourable: the New American Atlas "is decidedly one of the most splendid works of the kind ever executed in this country" (United States Gazette, September 1823). Never "has either America or Europe, produced a geographical description of the several States of the Union, so honorable to the Arts, and so creditable to the nation as Tanner's American Atlas." (National Advocate 25 August 1824). Perhaps the most enthusiastic report came from the scholar Jared Sparks who wrote in the April 1824 issue of the North American Review that "as an American Atlas, we believe Mr. Tanner's work to hold a rank far above any other, which has been published." This second edition is notable for the significant cartographic changes made by Tanner, reflecting new boundaries, counties, towns and discoveries since the initial maps were published. For example, the map of Illinois shows significant changes to the mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi, and the map of Louisiana depicts Indian lands with vast changes from the first edition.
