        For the Sexes: The Gates of Paradise. Plate 6 “Air”.

      [London: c. 1825?] Single plate, 10.6 x 9.5, loose intaglio etching/engraving, in fine condition. Printed in black and white on wove paper with large margins. A superb lifetime impression of the plate. This plate is from the (incomplete) set in the final (5th) state that was found bound into a copy of Gilchrist with much other fine material all subsequently dispersed. This set of plates was sold at Sotheby’s on May 9, 1991 ($105,000 on an estimate of 15,000-25,000) to the current consignor. Bentley records it as copy N (Blake Books Supplement p. 79-80): the plates measure as Bentley outlines and seem to follow a Morgan Library set (copy J) in the variety of sizes. “Copy N strikingly complements copy J; together they have all the plates of For the Sexes save pl. 1, 11-12, with duplicates of pl. 7-8.” Viscomi, supported by Essick, tentatively dates lifetime copy J to c. 1825 and since this set seems to be its companion one can guess they were printed together or at about the same time. The rarity of printings of “The Gates” in the marketplace either in the first form as “For Children” or the second form “For the Sexes” is well established. Essick records one single plate from the 2nd state “For Children” which he purchased recently, and this set which in 1991 made over quadruple the high estimate. The first state is known in one copy; the second in four; the third in one, the fourth in two, and the fifth in about 11 copies, including this copy and five which, according to Viscomi, are posthumous printings. Copy M in Bentley, Blake Books Supplement, p. 78, is now known to be a Muir facsimile. Viscomi, Blake and the Idea of the Book, has the most thorough discussion of printings. He designates copies E, F, G. H, and I as probably posthumous (with a question mark before E) in his chart of printings of the illuminated books, p. 381. Viscomi discusses the printing of For the Sexes on pp. 366-67. He is unsure about copy E being posthumous, but more confident about F, G, H, and I being posthumous as these copies (F-I) are printed on J Whatman 1826 paper which is distinctly different from the paper of copies J and N.. They "were printed without plate 19" (p. 367), but E does have that plate and might be posthumous. At least J includes plate 19--a point in favor of its being lifetime (along with, therefore, its companion, copy N).  Viscomi does not mention copy J, pp. 366-67, but he does include it in his chart of printings, p. 380, as lifetime, printed 1825. The group of plates he discusses in endnote 8, p. 426, which makes reference to Essick, is what is now called copy N (Bentley's designation). This note is probably the most authoritative published comment on copy N.

        Wall map of the world - Eustache Hérison, 1825.

      WALL MAP OF THE WORLD MAP FROM THE AGE OF DISCOVERY?La Mappe Monde ou le Globe Terrestre Représenté en deux Hémisphères, l?un Oriental, l'autre Occidental, où sont marquées Les Découvertes les plus récentes Faites par Mackenzie, Vancouver, La Pérouse, Bruce, Renell, Mungo-Park, Joub Barrow et Le Vaillant?. Double-hemisphere wall map of the world, copper engraving on 2 joined leaves, by Eustache Hérisson. Revised edition published in Paris by Basset, 1825. Size: 90 x 119 cm. (hemispheres each Ø 60,5 cm). Coloured by a later hand.Very rare world map, precisely engraved and filled with finely rendered detail in the interior and along coastlines. The map includes the latest information from the discoveries of Captain Cook, who?s three voyages are chronicled.This revised edition is an update of earlier and smaller editions of the map (the first being issued in 1795) with the most recent discoveries added. The explorers Lapérouse, Alexander Mackenzie, George Vancouver, James Bruce, James Renell, Mungo Park, John Barrow and François Le Vaillant are mentioned in the caption and their respective voyages indicated on the map.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, and led to his commission in 1766 as commander of HMS Endeavour for the first of three Pacific voyages.On his voyages to the Pacific Captain Cook achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. In three voyages Cook sailed thousands of miles across largely uncharted areas of the globe. He mapped lands from New Zealand to Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean in greater detail and on a scale not previously achieved. As he progressed on his voyages of discovery he surveyed and named features, and recorded islands and coastlines on European maps for the first time. He displayed a combination of seamanship, superior surveying and cartographic skills, physical courage and an ability to lead men in adverse conditions.Compte Lapérouse (1741 ? 1788?) was appointed in 1785 by Louis XVI to lead an expedition around the world. The expedition?s aims were to complete the Pacific discoveries of James Cook, correct and complete maps of the area, establish trade contacts, open new maritime routes and enrich French science and scientific collections. His ships were the Astrolabe and the Boussole. They were to explore both the north and south Pacific, including the coasts of the Far East and of Australia, and send back reports through existing European outposts in the Pacific.Alexander Mackenzie (1764 - 1820) was a Scottish explorer known for his overland crossing of what is now Canada to reach the Pacific Ocean in 1793.Captain George Vancouver (1757 ?1798) was an English officer of the Royal Navy, best known for his 1791?95 expedition, which explored and charted North America?s northwestern Pacific Coast regions, including the coasts of contemporary Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. He also explored the Hawaiian Islands and the southwest coast of Australia.James Bruce (1730 ? 1794) was a Scottish traveller and travel writer who spent more than a dozen years in North Africa and Ethiopia, where he traced the origins of the Blue Nile.James Rennell (1742 ?1830) was the leading British geographer of his time. Rennell constructed the first nearly accurate map of India. Todays he is known as the ?Father of Indian Geography?.Mungo Park (1771 ? 1806) was a Scottish explorer of the African continent. He was the first Westerner known to have travelled to the central portion of the Niger River.John Barrow (1764-1848) was an English statesman and one of the greatest promoters of British exploration. Most notably were his expeditions to West Africa and the North Polar Region with attempts to find a Northwest Passage from east to west through the Canadian Arctic.François Le Vaillant (1753 ?1824) was a French author, explorer, naturalist, zoological collector, noted ornithologist, and traveller of Africa.Price: ?3.250,-.

        A Narrative of an Excursion to Ireland, by the Deputy Governor, Two Members of the Court, and the Assistant Secretary, of the Honorable Irish Society, of London.

      London: Charles Skipper. 1825 - First and only edition. Small 4to. 103 pp. In a contemporary green half-morocco, with marbled paper sides and matching end-papers, spine gilt. teg. Frontispiece of “The Salmon Leap and Mill at Coleraine” rather foxed as usual. Title page with signature(?) excised, not affecting text. Ffep with Dublin booksellers stamp. In the apparently hot summer of 1825 Gilpin Gorst travelled to Ireland on Society business and left us this quirky account of what he found there. In 1843 W.H. Sharp was to write in Retrospect of the Affairs of the Irish Society that this narrative was “.a curious and private publication although printed at the Society's cost, copies of which are very scarce”. Rare on the market to this day. With a page from the Londonderry Sentinel Aug. 17 1886, reporting on a later visit by the Society, loosely inserted. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Grund-Plaene, Durchschnitte und Façaden nebst einigen Details der Synagoge in München erbaut im Jahre 1824/25. Nach dem Entwurfe und unter der Leitung des K. B. Bauraths und Hofbau-Decorateurs Johann Métivier

      1825. Two suites of 12 lithographed plates, the first set of 12 in black-and-white (several a little foxed) and the second duplicate set in fine original coloring.7, [1] pp. Small folio, orig. printed blue upper wrapper bound in orig. reddish-orange glazed boards, covers with a gilt border, spine gilt, a.e.g. Munich: J.M. Herrmann, n.d. [but ca. 1825]. This work describes the first synagogue built in Munich; it is the presentation copy given to the royal house of Bavaria, specially bound and with an extra suite of hand-colored plates. This is a rare book and our copy, with the additional set of plates, appears to be absolutely unique. In 1790 there were only 127 Jews living in Munich. They earned their livelihood as contractors for the army and the royal mint, merchants dealing in luxury wares and livestock, moneylenders, and peddlers. Since there was no legal basis for their residence in Munich, they did not have the right to practice their religion, and every year they had to pay a special tax to enable them to observe Sukkot. In 1805 a "Regulation for Munich Jewry" was issued (it formed the basis for the Bavarian Judenmatrikel of 1813); among other privileges, the Jews were permitted to inherit the right of domicile, to conduct services, and to reside in all parts of the city. During the Napoleonic Wars, the number of Jews was augmented by immigrants, and by 1814 there were 451 Jews in the city. Two years later, the Jewish community was formally organized and in the same year the community was given permission to establish a cemetery. In 1824 a permit was issued for the construction of a synagogue. The synagogue on the Westenriederstrasse was the first structure initiated by the newly empowered Jewish community. The architect Jean Baptiste Métivier (1781-1857), was royal building inspector who designed many palaces for the nobility as well as furniture. He favored a more classical style for the building and believed it should serve as a model for future synagogues in the Bavarian kingdom. He was supported by the King but his ideas were not carried out as later synagogues were built more in the oriental style. The Westenriederstrasse synagogue and the St. Emmeram Castle in Regensburg were Métivier's most important commissions. The synagogue was destroyed by the Nazis in 1938 during Kristallnacht. A fine deluxe copy of a very uncommon book. From the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.❧ Pfister II, 2100-2111. Thieme-B., XXIV, 439. Lentner 1892.

        Beauty and the Beast. An Old Tale New-Told, with Pictures

      London : Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle A fair copy in the original green decorative cloth binding with 10 colour plates and numerous line drawings by Eleanor Vere Boyle (1825-1916). Undated but probably late 1800's, being a reissue of her edition first printed in 1875. Beauty and the Beast is said to be one of her best works, with beautiful imagery and colouring. The binding has been rebacked so is sound and clean but there are faded patches to both boards. The original endpapers are present, with repair. Contents have occasional light grubby marking and there are some repaired page edge tears. There is some light staining to the edge of some pages and plates - presumably where the book has got damp. The staining does not affect the plate image, simply the surround, and where present is normally the bottom outer corner, although the frontispiece has light stains to the top margin as well. We would be happy to supply images of all the plates if you would like to check condition further. A rare and beautiful work.

        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires.

      Paris: Chez de Bure Frères, 1825. First edition of this very rare memoir in which "Cauchy began to lay the foundations of the general theory of analytic functions of a complex variable and their integration by residues." (Landmark Writtings in Western Mathematics, ch. 28). "This paper is considered by many as his most important, and one of the most beautiful in the history of science" (Kline, Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, p. 637); Cauchy begins the present work by giving a definition of a definite integral for which the limits are complex rather than real numbers, attempting to imitate the definition he had given for real limits in his Résumé des Leçons (1823). This led him to define the integral of a complex function f(z) over an arbitrary path in the complex plane (in modern terminology). The main theorem, which he derived from the Cauchy-Riemann differential equations by means of variational calculus, asserted that in a domain of regularity of f(z) such an integral depended only on the endpoints of the path, and not on the path itself. This is the famous Cauchy integral theorem, the foundation of modern complex function theory. "Cauchy next attacks the problem of what happens when f(z) has a singularity at a point lying between the two paths along which the integral is evaluated... Cauchy deals first with the case where the singularity is a simple pole... he splits f(z) into two parts, one of which is a simple rational expression, reproducing the behaviour of f(z) near the singularity, and the other a well-behaved function, which makes no contribution to the difference between the two integrals... the device of splitting the function in this way appears to come from Ostrogradsky, who had used a similar device in an unpublished paper dated 24 July 1824 and was working closely with Cauchy at the time. Cauchy then goes on to deal with the case where the pole of f(z) between the paths is a multiple one... In every case he concludes that the difference between the integrals is ±2?if0, where f0 is precisely what he was later to call the 'residue' of f(z) at the singularity. "Shortly after proving these results Cauchy suddenly introduces, without any prior warning except a brief mention in his preliminary abstract, some geometrical language in describing his results (art. 9) ... up to this point he had mistrusted its use, feeling that it would tend to disguise the general validity of analytic methods... He seems to feel, indeed, that some of the ideas appearing in the present context can be expressed more concisely by admitting some geometrical terminology" (Landmark Writings, p. 388). The present memoir must be distinguished from Cauchy's Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, submitted to the Académie des Sciences on 22 August 1814 but not published until 1827. The 1814/1827 memoir was an attempt to justify methods that had been used by Euler, Laplace and others to evaluate certain definite integrals, methods which (again in modern terminology) involved shifting the path of integration from the real into the complex domain. Cauchy's main result was a primitive version of the integral theorem which allowed integration only along rectangular paths with sides parallel to the real or imaginary axes, since the limits on the definite integrals he considered were always real numbers. Moreover, the integrands in the 1814/1827 paper were real functions - complex functions had to be dealt with by splitting them into their real and imaginary parts. Finally, geometrical language was nowhere used in the 1814/1827 paper. The present memoir was presented to the Académie on 28 February 1825, in a manuscript which is still preserved in the Académie's pochette for that meeting. It came out in August in a print run of 500 copies. It may be regarded as the herald of his journal Exercices de mathématiques, which began to appear from De Bure in 1826. Over the decades its form of publication made it inaccessible, so that it received a reprint in the Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques in 1874 (a version which some historians - e.g. Kline - falsely take to be its first publication). (See Grattan-Guinness, Convolutions in French Mathematics 1800-1840, Vol. II. p. 766.) DSB III: 137-9; Grattan-Guinness, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940, Ch. 28 (by F. Smithies); for a very detailed analysis of the work, see Smithies, Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, Ch. 4. 4to (247 x 197 mm), contemporary half cloth over marbled boards, manuscript paper label to spine, blind stamp of the Berlin State Library to the front board, rubber stamp of the same to verso of the title, stamped out and sold as a duplicate in 1936, pp. [iv] 68.

        The COOK'S ORACLE Containing RECEIPTS FOR PLAIN COOKERY on the Most Economical Plan For Private Families

      Evert Duyckinck, George Long, E. Bliss & E. White., New York 1825 - [2] [v-xii] 371 pages. 19 x 11 cm. (Title conclusion) Also The Art of Composing the Most Simple and Most Highly Finished Broths, Gravies, Soups, Sauces, Store Sauces, and Flavoring Essences: Pastry, Preserves, Puddings, &c. and An Easy, Certain, and Economical Process for preparing PICKLES, By which they will be ready in a Fortnight, and remain good for Years. The Quantity of each Article is ACCURATELY STATED BY WEIGHT AND MEASURE; The whole being the result of ACTUAL EXPERIMENTS Instituted in the Kitchen of a Physician. The whole work has again been carefully revised, by the author of "THE ART OF INVIGORATING LIFE BY FOOD," &c. "Miscuit utile dulci." The author, William Kitchiner M.D. (1775-1827), was a wealthy physician of London who did not practice his profession but was a food, science, and music enthusiast. An early devotee of mastication (Masticate, denticate, chump, grind, and swallow), Kitchiner purportedly did most of his own cooking and cleaning. First published in 1817, this extensive guide for the domestic cook took the UK and US by storm, making Kitchiner a household name and an inspiration for many later cookbook authors, including Mrs. Beeton who lifted a number of her recipes directly from his book. Owner's inscription on title page. Rebound, with one page of index missing. Usual foxing throughout. [LOWENSTEIN 99] Faux quarter bound, gray boards with white spine.

        Memoirs. Comprising his Diary from 1659 to 1669, deciphered by John Smith of St. John's College, Cambridge, from the Original Short-hand MS in the Pepysian Library, and a Selection from his Private Correspondence. Edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke.

      London: Henry Colburn, 1825 - 2 volumes, large quarto. Uncut in original drab paper boards, printed paper labels to spines. Each volume housed in a custom blue cloth solander box with gilt-lettered spine. Volume 1: c20 book-label of collector Perry Molstad to front pastedown, joints cracked but holding, small mark to front board, pale spotting to sigs. C-3N and a few small nicks and chips to edges, as usual in untrimmed books, slightly longer closed tear to fore edge of sig. 2N2, the text unaffected, sig. b4 browned in fore margin, the vignette spared, small mark to lower margin of Index p. xxii. Volume 2: contemporary ownership inscription of ?William Beebey to front pastedown, covers slightly marked overall, extremities rubbed, tips lightly bumped, superficial splitting to front joint, p. 282 very slightly marked, else internally clean. Box joints split and frayed. Withal a very good copy, entirely unrestored in its original binding. Engraved portrait frontispiece after Godfrey Kneller, 12 plates including portraits, genealogies, facsimiles and views, of which one double-page, all with tissue-guards; engraved vignette portrait to volume 1 p. xv, similar vignette of the "Loving Cup" to p. xlii. First edition of this key historical record of Restoration London, which remained unprinted for more than 150 years after its original composition. The text was painstakingly deciphered from Pepys's shorthand by a penniless student who did not realise that the manual for the system, Thomas Shelton's Tutor to Tachygraphy (1642), was easily accessible in his own college library. Pepys's diary is the chief source for our knowledge of day-to-day life in Restoration London, but it is much more than just a record of quotidian life: "As a diarist he is simply the best there was, with the good fortune to be close to the centre of momentous events" (ODNB).

        A Review of the Financial Situation of the East-India Company in 1824.

      London: for Kingsbury, Parbury, and Allen, 1825 - Octavo in half-sheets (211 x 127 mm). Contemporary half calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, raised bands, red morocco label, marbled sides, sprinkled edges. Bound with the half-title. Armorial bookplate of Archibald Trotter to the front pastedown. Head of spine chipped, joints and corners rubbed, front joint superficially cracked, but firm, turn-ins offset to binder's blanks, pale spotting to prelims, dedication leaf lightly creased, very small hole to fore margin of sig. 2B4, the text unaffected. A very good copy. First edition, scarce. From the library of Archibald Trotter of Dryden (1789-1868), employee of the Bengal civil service from 1806, the year of Tucker's disgrace and imprisonment, until his retirement 1840, after which he served as a magistrate for Midlothian. Tucker (1771/2-1851) sailed to Calcutta in 1786 and held a variety of clerical appointments before joining the Bengal civil service in 1792, where he drafted plans for establishing a bank (later realised in the Bank of Bengal). He served as accountant-general from 1801 to 1806, when he was convicted for the attempted rape of a former colleague's wife, though the affair had remarkably little effect on his career. Following his release from a six-month prison sentence he held a variety of further posts before leaving India permanently in 1815. "In 1826 Tucker was elected a director of the East India Company and, apart from the obligatory years of exclusion, remained on the court until his death in 1851, devoting great energy to issues of Indian administration. As a tory who had first served under the paternalistic reigns of Cornwallis and Wellesley, he spearheaded the conservative reaction to the radical anti-landlord revenue settlements of the 1830s and rallied support against the prolonged assault of missionaries and free-traders on the company's privileges. He also led the company's opposition to the annexation of Sind and the First Afghan War. In recognition of his application and remarkably broad experience, he was elected chairman of the company in 1834 and again in 1847" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

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

      Offak Bay: or later on the voyage, circa 1825. Watercolour on laid paper, 482 x 310mm., large pencil sketch to the verso. 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. For the sculpture search "korwar" at www.quaibranly.fr. Small loss at lower left had corner not affecting either illlustration, some tears and nicks to the edges. Very good.

        Encyclopédie méthodique. Histoire naturelle: Insectes.

      Paris: Panckoucke, Agasse, 1789-1825. 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. 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.

He was led to investigate them rather by accident than by choice; but should it be objected that some more interesting tribe might have been selected, he may remark that however minute, these little beings are not without characters highly interesting to the admirer of nature: their remarkable palpi - the symmetry and neatness of their form - their polished armour, and singularity of appearance, are all sufficiently calculated to please and to interest.'

        For the Sexes: The Gates of Paradise. Plate 6 "Air".

      - [London: c. 1825?] Single plate, 10.6 x 9.5, loose intaglio etching/engraving, in fine condition. Printed in black and white on wove paper with large margins. A superb lifetime impression of the plate. This plate is from the (incomplete) set in the final (5th) state that was found bound into a copy of Gilchrist with much other fine material all subsequently dispersed. This set of plates was sold at Sotheby's on May 9, 1991 ($105,000 on an estimate of 15,000-25,000) to the current consignor. Bentley records it as copy N (Blake Books Supplement p. 79-80): the plates measure as Bentley outlines and seem to follow a Morgan Library set (copy J) in the variety of sizes. "Copy N strikingly complements copy J; together they have all the plates of For the Sexes save pl. 1, 11-12, with duplicates of pl. 7-8." Viscomi, supported by Essick, tentatively dates lifetime copy J to c. 1825 and since this set seems to be its companion one can guess they were printed together or at about the same time.The rarity of printings of "The Gates" in the marketplace either in the first form as "For Children" or the second form "For the Sexes" is well established. Essick records one single plate from the 2nd state "For Children" which he purchased recently, and this set which in 1991 made over quadruple the high estimate. The first state is known in one copy; the second in four; the third in one, the fourth in two, and the fifth in about 11 copies, including this copy and five which, according to Viscomi, are posthumous printings. Copy M in Bentley, Blake Books Supplement, p. 78, is now known to be a Muir facsimile. Viscomi, Blake and the Idea of the Book, has the most thorough discussion of printings. He designates copies E, F, G. H, and I as probably posthumous (with a question mark before E) in his chart of printings of the illuminated books, p. 381. Viscomi discusses the printing of For the Sexes on pp. 366-67. He is unsure about copy E being posthumous, but more confident about F, G, H, and I being posthumous as these copies (F-I) are printed on J Whatman 1826 paper which is distinctly different from the paper of copies J and N. They "were printed without plate 19" (p. 367), but E does have that plate and might be posthumous. At least J includes plate 19--a point in favor of its being lifetime (along with, therefore, its companion, copy N). Viscomi does not mention copy J, pp. 366-67, but he does include it in his chart of printings, p. 380, as lifetime, printed 1825. The group of plates he discusses in endnote 8, p. 426, which makes reference to Essick, is what is now called copy N (Bentley's designation). This note is probably the most authoritative published comment on copy N.
