      Paris 1827 - The works of the great botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) seem to demand the invention of lofty praise. Described both as the “Rembrandt” and the “Raphael” of Flowers by nineteenth century writers, Redoute occupies a central position in the development of European botanical art. Born into a family of artists, Redoute's talents were recognized and encouraged from an early age. He studied botany with the noted naturalist Heritier de Brutelle, and learned the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum from Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King. By this master painter's own account, his pupil's work was finer. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the exquisite watercolor models that Redoute provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute's remarkable body of work. The Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs is one of Redoute's last, and most personal works. It is a selection of favorite flowers and fruits by a master who had devoted a lifetime to the art of botanical illustration. The images include spectacular blossoms plucked from formal gardens, as well as the more modest blooms of wayside flowers. These small and richly colored plates convey an intimate sense of beauty that sets them apart from other botanical works.

        Paradise Lost of Milton With Illustrations, Designed and Engraved by John Martin.

      London Septimus Prowett 1827 - John Milton’s "Paradise Lost" with John Martin’s Illustrations, One of 50 copies MILTON, John. The Paradise Lost of Milton. With Illustrations, Designed and Engraved by John Martin. London: Septimus Prowett, 1827. First (Imperial Quarto) edition. One of only 50 copies with the smaller set of engravings. According to Campbell there were two issues of the Imperial Quarto Edition: "(2) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., with fully lettered prints from the larger set of plates, at £10 16s.(3) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., containing lettered proofs of the smaller set of the engravings: limited to 50 copies, at 12 guineas for the complete publication." Thus even though the images were smaller, this edition was more expensive upon publication. Campbell states "only three copies of the Imperial Quarto edition containing proofs from the smaller set of engravings are now known" (this was in 1992). Two volumes bound in one. Large quarto (14 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches; 366 x 268 mm.). [4], 228; [2], 218 pp. Twenty-four mezzotint plates in the smaller format (image size: 8 x 5 1/2 inches), with tissue guards. Contemporary burgundy pebble-grain morocco. Covers decoratively paneled in gilt, spines paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt spine bands, gilt board edges, wide gilt-tooled dentelles, marbled endpapers and doublures, all edges gilt. Some light foxing (mainly to the plate margins and prelims). An excellent copy of this scarce edition. "This book was one of the great publishing enterprises of the age. It appeared in eight different formats, four with the large plates (8 by 11 inches) and four with the small (6 by 8 inches). Martin executed the forty-eight mezzotints himself. The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunel’s new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" (Ray). "Martin’s illustrations to John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost represent a turning point in his career. The vast majority of Martin’s most famous works.were based upon either Miltonic or biblical subject matter—the Paradise Lost series are of particular importance both as one of his chief bodies of designs and as the focal point for the beginning of his career as a mezzotint engraver. Begun by early 1824, this series of engravings was the result of a commission from a little known American publisher, names Septimus Prowett. Prowett, who was based in London, approached Martin to produce 24 mezzotint accompany an issue of Milton’s text which was to be produced in twelve parts.To appreciate the impact which Martin’s designs had upon his public, one must realize the extent to which these extraordinary visions represented an entirely new conception of approach to the art of illustration. Not only were they ‘original’ in the truest sense of the word—designed directly on the plates without the aid of preparatory sketches, they were some of the earliest mezzotints to have been made using soft steel rather than copper, and they were the first illustrations of Milton’s epic work to have been made in the mezzotint medium.The greatest significance of Martin’s illustrations, however, was in their spectacular visionary content.Martin laid before his public the spectacular settings of the epic tale—the open voids of the Creation, the vast vaulted caverns of Hell vanishing into the utter blackness of Chaos, the daunting scale of the city of Pandemonium, and the sweeping beauty f Heaven itself. These images have no serious counterpart and are the very essence of the sublime in Romantic art. They are without doubt one of the most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" (Campbell, John Martin, Visionary Printmaker, pp. 38-41).

Dans ses observations préliminaires, l’éditeur précise : « Dans presque toute l’Europe les femmes de la première classe, et même celles de la seconde, prennent à tâche de suivre les modes de Paris : il a donc fallu, pour former une galerie de Costumes caractéristiques, faire dessiner des costumes d’ouvrières, et même de servantes. » Effectivement, l’ensemble des figures présente jeunes femmes et jeunes filles de la ville ou de la campagne dont la plupart sont les élégantes représentantes de divers petits métiers féminins (bouquetières, cuisinières, filles de chambre, fruitières, laitières, paysannes, poissardes ou servantes). Quel que soit leur rang, ces demoiselles des quatre coins de l’Europe ont en commun le raffinement de la tenue et des accessoires ; de la simplicité à la sophistication, du classicisme au pittoresque, les alliances de coloris et de motifs accentuées par la vivacité de la palette de l’aquarelliste offrent un témoignage à la fois authentique et artistique de grande qualité. Outre le célèbre périodique parisien "Journal des Dames et des Modes", très apprécié des milieux mondains mais aussi d’un public plus modeste tant en France qu’en Europe, dont il fût l’éditeur et le rédacteur, Pierre La Mésangère (1761-1831) édita un nombre considérable d’ illustrations sur les us et coutumes parues en séries de 1798 jusqu'à sa mort en 1831 ainsi qu’une série satirique Le Bon Genre (1800 –1822). Le succès des journaux dépendant beaucoup des illustrations, il tint à s’adjoindre des artistes de renom. Parmi ces collaborateurs déjà connus pour leur savoir-faire, le dessinateur Louis Marie Lanté et le graveur Georges-Jacques Gatine qui devinrent les maîtres d’œuvre féconds d’une entreprise couronnée de succès. Ce recueil illustre à merveille la collaboration fructueuse de ce trio de talents, répondant judicieusement à l’engouement du monde féminin pour l’élégance et l’originalité vestimentaire. Bel exemplaire à larges marges. 1 vol. folio. 100 hand-colored engraved plates by G.-J. Gatine. Contemporary half morocco. First edition of this beautiful work on female European's outfit. This book illustrate wonderfully the seminal collaboration between the three artists which answer the feminine passion for elegance and fashion originality. Fine copy, large margins.

        Autograph letter signed to "The Governor Chief Factors & Chief Traders Northern Department'

      Fort Chipewyan [Athabasca, Alberta, Canada] 1827 - Provenance: Charles de Volpy (' V.' ink collector's stamp, sale: R. Maresch & Son, 26 May 1982, lot 21) Long and detailed manuscript account of Hudson's Bay Company fur trading in the wilds of Canada. Alexander Stewart, the chief Hudson's Bay Company factor at Fort Chipewyan (present-day Athabasca) here writes a detailed and fascinating "account of the Company's Affairs in this District," in 1827.The Fort, just north of present-day Edmondton, was the main jumping-off point for trapping expeditions into what is now northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories, especially the area around the Great Slave Lake.This was new country for the trappers. Sir John Franklin's second expedition had explored the country in 1825-27, with the help of the HBC, and particularly Peter Dease. In this letter Stewart describes the situation at the end of 1827, noting that they might have lost important ship-board supplies for trading with Native Canadians "had not Mr. C.[hief] t.[rader] Simon McGillivray . by his judicious management ultimately succeed in getting them here in due time. La Londe the conductor of the craft for this District, I look upon as no longer fit for that duty, having no more command of the men than a common steersman . I, with the able assistance of Mr. P. W. Dease, whom I found here waiting with the remainder of the Mackenzie's River outfit, made various arrangements and settlements with the Indians . Both Peace River and Great Slave Lake (in present-day Northwest Territories) outfits with their people left this on the 5th and 6th." Stewart goes on to mention that he had difficulty distributing goods to the natives, as they came in greater numbers than expected, and describes a disease ("chin-cough," i.e. whooping-cough) that has affected the families. He further mentions that non-importation of liquor has not been a problem and continues: "The natives of Fort Chipewyan and Great Slave Lake have been as obedient as could be expected to our orders not to destroy the beaver during the summer season . The Beaver Indians being more destitute and more in the habit of making their hunt by the Gun . I have taken the liberty to forward herewith to Mr. C.F. McTavish the requisition for outfit 1828 . I mean to send off three boats, which I have no doubt contain all the packs that may be made at this place and Seal River . There are in the district including 4 interpreters 45 men - To take out 3 boats - 21 men / Two loaded canoes - 9 men / Messrs. Smith & Stewarts Canoe - 6 men: 36 men - 9 men left. / Required for summer establishment: Great Slave Lake - 3 men, incl. interpreter / Fort Chipewyan - 3 / Fort Vermilion - 3 / Dunvegon - 3.showing a deficiency of 4.We must recourse to the hiring, if possible, [of] some of our half-breeds or free-men in order to get our returns." Alexander Stewart had originally worked for the North West Company, rising from apprentice (in 1796) to partner (in 1813). At the time of the merger of the North West Company with the Hudson's Bay Company he was based at Little Slave Lake. Stewart was appointed one of the Chief Factor's in the newly merged company, initially based at Fort William (1821-23) and Island Lake (1823-26) before taking over at Fort Chipewyan, where he remained until 1830. He took a furlough in 1830-31, but suffered health problems which led to his retirement in 1833. Peter Warren Dease (1788-1863), whose help Stewart praises in the present letter, would become a chief factor in his own right in the following year. Dease had earlier assisted Franklin during his second expedition in 1825-26, and he went on to gain renown as an Arctic explorer in his own right. In 1836-39, with Thomas Simpson, Dease commanded an expedition which explored the Arctic coast from the mouth of the Mackenzie River to Point Barrow. 5 1/2 pp., legal folio (12 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches). Dampstained, tears at folds, two bifolium, with docket panel on verso of final page "Fort Chipewyan 28th Decr. '27 / Alex Stewart"

        The HISTORY Of SCOTLAND, Translated from the Latin of George Buchanan; With NOTES And a Continuation to the Union in the Reign of Queen Anne. By James Aikman, Esq. In Four Volumes. [Vols V & VI: "And a Continuation to the Present Time. In Six Volumes."].

      Published by Blackie Fullarton & Co., and Archibald Fullarton & Co., Edinburgh. 1827 - 1829, Glasgow: - Illustrated with frontis in each volume & a hand-colored folding copperplate map of Scotland in Volume I. BuchananÕs greatest literary achievement of his later years was his Rerum Scoticarum Historia, initially published in 1582, in which he related the history of Scotland from its origin till the death of the regent Lennox in 1571. . the underlying object of the book is the inculcation of those principles of political and religious liberty of which Buchanan had been the consistent champion throughout his career. By the leading scholars of Europe it was adjudged to be a work of transcendent merit, and even in the eighteenth century it was seriously debated whether Caesar, Livy, or Sallust had been his model. In this History, which for fully two centuries kept its place as a standard authority, Buchanan had appealed both to scholars and protestant theologians. [Cambridge History of English & American Literature]. While the work was extremely popular, and remained in print almost continuously well into the 19th C., this was one of the more ambitious editions, extending the History until the 'present' day.

        Sketches of a Tour to the Lakes, of the Character and Customs of the Chippeway Indians. And of incidents connected with the Treaty of Fond du Lac. Also a Vocabulary of the Algic or Chippeway Language

      Fielding Lucas, Jr., Baltimore 1827 - viii-[9]-493+[1] pages with 6 of 29 plates, three appendices: Copy of the Journal of the Proceedings under the treaty of Fond Du Lac, as noted by the Secretary, TREATY Between the United States of American and the Chippeway tribe of Indians; concluded August 5, 1826 and Vocabulary of the Algic, or Chippeway Language. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original blind stamped cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Hpwes: M132, Sabin 43407, Field 994, Pilling: 2383) First edition. Thomas McKenney started as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights. In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there. The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor’s American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture. McKenney’s transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense). In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard’s companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language! Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney’s Indian boys from school and return them to their people. The present volume describes the author's expedition to the Chippewa, Winnegago, and Menominee tribes and the signing of the treaty of Fond du Lac in 1827. Condition: Six of 29 plates, lacks all the colored plates and the frontispiece.

Beethoven finished this Quartet – the third one composed for Galitzin – towards the end of 1825. The 6 movements met with a mixed response at the premiere in March 1826: the middle movements were received enthusiastically, the first movement was felt to be very cumbersome, and the final piece, the Fugue, reaped wide-spread incomprehension. The publisher, Artaria, suggested to the second violinist of the Schuppanzigh Quartet, Karl Holz, that Beethoven should compose a different final movement. Holz, who had become a trusted colleague to the composer, convinced Beethoven to write a new conclusion and to publish this fugue separately with its own opus numeration (op. 133). By the autumn of 1826 the quartet in its new form was ready, and the new final piece was performed in December of the same year, and the complete work was then performed by the Schuppanzigh Quartet in April 1827. A few markings with pencil. Green fore-edges. Slightly browned throughout and in places finger-stained. Old handwritten pagination relating to an old "sammelband".

        [Op. 86]. Messe... 86s Werk f?r vier Singstimmen italienisch[!] und deutsch mit Begleitung des Piano-Forte arrangirt von O. Claudius. [Piano-vocal score]

      Leipzig: Breitkopf & H?rtel [PN 4563]. [December 1827]. Oblong folio. Original publisher's blue printed wrappers with decorative ruled border. 1f. (title), 60 pp. Music engraved, title lithographed. Price: "2 Thlr. 16 Gr." Signature in ink to both title and upper wrapper: "Dr. Rust," with additional annotations in ink in Rust's hand: "italienisch" and "NB!!!" to margin. German titles to movements: "Erster Hymnus" (= Kyrie and Gloria), p. 1; "Zweiter Hymnus" (= Credo), p. 19; "Dritter Hymnus" (= Sanctus, Benedictus, Osanna, Agnus Dei), p. 36. No Latin titles. All entrances of soprano soloist marked up in red crayon. Breathing marks to the same part added in pencil (pp. 10, 11, 30). Corrections to engraving errors (pp. 16, 18, 37, 41, 48, 55) and further annotations added in black or blue pencil. Rehearsal numbers to the Kyrie added in pencil. Spine reinforced with black cloth tape; upper wrapper stained and loose, lower slightly defective. Slightly worn; tear to pp. 1/2 extending approximately 80 mm. into printed area; some minor imperfections. . First Edition, first issue. The work was previously published in full score in 1812, also by Breitkopf & Härtel. Kinsky p. 240-41. Not in Hoboken. The word "italienisch" (Italian) on the title page should read "lateinisch" (Latin). The German text, not credited in the edition, is by Christian Schreiber. The addition of a vernacular text underlay - for the most part newly-written poetry without resemblance to the liturgical text - to a Latin mass was fashionable in its time and place, when the Catholic Church opposed performances of liturgical music in concerts and anti-clerical sentiment was strong among intellectuals. The only sections where the German text amounts to a translation of the original concern the Last Judgment in the Credo, the Sanctus, the Osanna, and some passages of the Agnus Dei. All references to Jesus Christ are deleted. Beethoven approved the German text although he was critical of some passages of it. See Kinsky, p. 240, and J. Schmidt-[Görg], "Die deutschen Texte zu Beethovens C-dur Messe," Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses 5, Bonn, 1928. "Dr. Rust" is possibly Wilhelm Rust (1822-1892), the composer and scholar known as the editor of 26 volumes of the original Bach-Gesellschaft edition of J.S. Bach's complete works.
