        American Ornithology; or the Natural History of the Birds of the United States. Illustrated with plates engraved and coloured from original drawings taken from nature

      New York & Philadelphia: Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, 1828-1829. 4 volumes. (text: 3 vols., quarto [10 5/8 x 8 1/4 inches], front blanks in vols.II and III, final blank in vol.II [all as issued]; plates: 1 vol. folio (14 5/16 x 11 inches]). (Some light spotting) Text: cxcix,[1],230,[1];456 [without a leaf number vii-viii, as usual];vi,396pp., including front blanks in vols.II and III, final blank in vol.III, 4pp. subscribers' list at rear of vol.III. (Some light spotting). Atlas: 76 hand-coloured engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Expertly bound to style in half red straight- grained morocco over period marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spines with title lettered in gilt and a small decorative gilt oval containing the volume number. The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form, and with the very rare large paper issue of the text. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" (Coues). This set with provenance to noted Abolitionist Arthur Tappan. None of the bibliographies that we have consulted mention a "large paper" edition of the 1828-29 American Ornithology, the text of this set is on demonstrably larger paper than the usual 'octavo' copies that we have examined. The present copy is 10 1/2 inches in its uncut state, the uncut size of the octavo issue is 9 7/8 inches. Both issues are printed on the same 'Ames / Phila.' wove paper (with a dove of peace countermark): the present quarto issue can be recognised by the presence of the watermark in the middle of the sheet, with the octavo issue the watermark is invariably cut into by the upper or lower margin. The text is identical, but the settings of type must have been placed differently on the form in order to achieve the wider inner margins that are a feature of the quarto issue (2 inches as compared with 7/8 inch). The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii- cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in Fine Bird Books that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand-colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

        Select portions of the Psalms of David

      Sydney,: R. Howe, Government Printer, 1828.. Duodecimo; a delightful copy, completely unsophisticated in its original Sydney binding of blind-tooled sheep, preserved in a quarter morocco book-form box. An exceptional survivor from the early days of Sydney publishing: a presentation copy, from Governor Darling, of the first Church of England hymn-book printed in Australia, in its original Sydney binding.Sir Ralph Darling was appointed as Governor of NSW in 1825, succeeding Sir Thomas Brisbane in the post. Darling's governorship coincided with the raising of the ecclesiastical status in the colony, which came about by the inclusion of the Archdeacon on the newly-formed Executive Council, and the establishment of the Church and School Corporation in 1826, of which Darling was president. Thus it is most appropriate that this hymn-book, which aimed to "remove some difficulties which have been experienced in the Church Psalmody in this part of the world" (preface) was presented by Governor Darling to Henry Dumaresq's wife, Elizabeth, and is inscribed "from Lt. Genl. Darling. - Govt. House - to Mrs. H. Dumaresq".Three of his wife's brothers had travelled with him to Australia, Edward, Henry and William Dumaresq. Edward travelled as far as Hobart with them, where he became surveyor-general. Henry and William Dumaresq came to Sydney to become his private secretary and civil engineer respectively. It is small wonder that Darling's term in office was marked by constant cries of nepotism.Such an association makes this a most desirable copy of a very rare Sydney printing; Ferguson could locate only three copies.Ferguson, 1212; Ferguson, The Howes and their Press, plate XV, p. 30.

        AN AMERICAN DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

      New York: Published by S. Converse, printed by Hezekiah Howe - New Haven, 1828.. Two volumes. With the "Additions and Corrections" leaf. Portrait in first volume. Large, thick quarto. Original boards, completely untrimmed, renewed paper labels. Unobtrusive old institutional blindstamp on titlepage of each volume. Lightly age-toned, light scattered foxing, but a large, impressive copy. This copy contains the rare "Additions and Corrections" leaf, sometimes lacking, at the end of the second volume. The most important American dictionary, of prime importance as an early effort toward mass education, eventually placing correct spelling and usage at the fingertips of the ordinary American citizen. This two-volume quarto unabridged dictionary represents the culmination of Webster's indefatigable dedication to providing his country with its first comprehensive modern dictionary. "Webster set a new standard for etymological investigation, and for accuracy of definition ('a born definer of words' - Sir James Murray), and included 70,000 words, as against the 58,000 of any previous dictionary. There were 2,500 copies printed, in boards uncut or full calf, at $20 for the two volumes" - Grolier AMERICAN HUNDRED. "Webster was an ardent nationalist and he wanted to stress the political separation from England by the cultivation of a separate American language" - PMM. The introductory material contains Webster's thesis on the development of languages as well as his philosophical and practical grammar of the English language. A prize to be cherished by any American who cares about his/her native tongue. GROLIER AMERICAN 100, 36. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 291. SKEEL 583. SABIN 102335.

        An American Dictionary of the English Language

      New York: published by S. Converse, printed by Hezekiah Howe of New Haven, 1828. 2 volumes, quarto. (11 1/8 x 9 inches). Engraved portrait frontispiece of Webster by A.B. Durand after S.F.B. Morse at the front of vol.I, "Additions and Corrections" leaf bound at the end of vol.II. Expertly bound to style in diced russia over contemporary marbled-paper covered boards, spines with semi-raised bands divided into five compartments, ruled on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments, marbled endpapers and edges. First edition of the most important American dictionary, the "most ambitious publication ever undertaken, up to that time, upon American soil" (Grolier "American 100") and a prize to be cherished by any American who cares about their native tongue. This copy with provenance of a mayor of New York City. Noah Webster, teacher, lawyer and lexicographer, was also "an ardent nationalist and he wanted to stress the political separation from England by the cultivation of a separate American language" (PMM). Starting work on the American Dictionary in 1800, "Webster set a new standard for etymological investigation, and for accuracy of definition ('a born definer of words' - Sir James Murray), and included 70,000 words, as against the 58,000 of any previous dictionary" (Grolier American 100). This dictionary represents the culmination of Webster's indefatigable dedication to providing his country with its first comprehensive modern dictionary. The American Dictionary was printed in an initial edition of just 2500 copies at $20 for the two volumes. The valuable introductory material contains his thesis on the development of languages, and also his philosophical and practical grammar of the English language. Importantly, the present copy includes the "Additions and Corrections" leaf at the end of the second volume, which is sometimes lacking. The Dictionary "at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States... [it also] marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid attention to the language actually spoken ... In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr. [Samuel] Johnson, ... to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (PMM). This copy with interesting provenance to Walter Bowne, Mayor of New York from 1829-1833. Grolier, American 100, 36; Printing and the Mind of Man 291; Sabin 102335; Skeel 583.

        La Flore et la Pomone Françaises, ou histoire et figure en couleur, des fleurs et des fruits de France ou naturalisés sur le sol français.

      Paris, chez l'auteur, 1828 (-1835). 4 volumes. Royal-8vo (260 x 170mm). With 540 (of 544) fine engraved plates printed in colours with handfinishing. Contemporary black half morocco, gilt ornamented spines. The work was issued in 136 (138?) parts. It was planned to publish 800 plates but in so far as we know the regular publication was terminated with plate 544. Jean Henri Jaume Saint Hilaire (1772-1845) was a French botanist and botanical artist. "It is not until the beginning of the nineteenth century that precise scientific drawing commences to characterize French flower plates but with the transition the French artists such as Jaume St. Hilaire, Bessa, Turpin and Redouté rose almost immediately to world pre-eminence. These names are collector's high points" (Dunthorne p. 4). Blunt considers Jaume Saint-Hilaire a distinguised botanist and praises his 'Plantes de France' with its 1000 pleasant little stipple plates. Jaume Saint-Hilaire studied flower painting under van Spaendonck in Paris. Some occasional foxing, latin names written in pencil at foot of plates. Dunthorne 160; Stafleu & Cowan 3311; Johnston 943 quoting 552 plates.

        Histoire Naturelle des Poissons.

      Paris, F.G. Levrault, 1828-1849. 22 volumes. 4to (254 x 210mm). With 657 (70 plain) beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Later blue cloth, gilt lettered spines. The very rare large paper issue of the most important iconography on fishes published in the 19th century. The work is very reasonably priced as the text and plates are partly seriously affected by foxing. The plates of volumes 19 and 20 are not coloured. The work is usually found in 8vo with either plain or coloured plates. The work is important as it gives the correct Linnaean nomenclature of many fishes from Cook's voyages. "Cuvier and his assistant, Achille Valenciennes, did not actually see the voyage drawings; instead, they were to be plentifully supplied with tracings and sketched copies by a remarkable traveller, writer and artist called Sarah Bowdich. Together with her husband Thomas Bowdich, she had spent three-and-a-half years in Paris where they became close friends of Cuvier... The Bowdich copies of fish drawn by Georg Forster and other artists are in pencil on now-faded scraps of paper, and include a number of New Zealand species. They are bound in with the original Cuvier manuscript from which emerged the enormous 'Histoire naturelle des Poissons' (1824-49) in which some further fish from the Cook voyages were properly described and named..." (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 57). "Nearly all that was known about fishes during the first half of the nineteenth century was summarized by Georges Cuvier and his pupil and successor, Achille Valenciennes, in the monumental 'Histoire Naturelle des Poissons'. ... (It) contains descriptions of 4,514 nominal species, the greater portion, approximately two-thirds, written by Valenciennes after the death of Cuvier in 1832. To-day the work of Cuvier and Valenciennes is indispensable to systematic ichthyology ... In many parts of the world people assisted Cuvier with notes, manuscripts, and particularly specimens. For many years the Jardin des Plantes was the center where all ichthyological materials were deposited. Thus, Cuvier was able to bring together the richest and largest contemporary collection of fishes. Althogether, his vast communication network, huge world-wide collections, and extensive ichthyological library, made Paris the center of ichthyology and Cuvier the foremost ichthyologist in the world" (T.W. Pietsch in 'Archives of Nat. Hist, 12, 1'). The plates belong to the very best ever made, no ichthyological work equals the delicacy of colouring and precision of engraving. Nissen. Schöne Fischbücher, 46; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)I, 411.

        Picturesque Views of The English Cities, from Drawings by G. F. Robson, Edited by J. Britton. Containing Thirty-two Engravings by Adlard, Barrenger, Barber, Higham, Le Keux, Jeavons, Varrall, Tombleson, Redaway, Taylor, Woolnorth etc.

      London: J. Britton, 1828.. First edition. Printed title with ornamental border, an engraved Architectural & Heraldic title page and 31 engraved city views as called for. Folio, (13 1/4 x 10 inches), contemporary full green grained morocco, the sides elaborately blocked in gilt within gilt rules, the spine ornamentally blocked and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt. The binding rubbed on the joints and headbands but still a fine and most attractive binding. The free endpapers have been adhered to the front pastedowns, perhaps to reinforce the inner hinges, but these now have some rippling. A remarkably clean copy. Some foxing to the Architectural title and occasional very light marginal foxing but overall very clean and with good strong impressions of the plates. Short marginal tear to one plate. Overall an exceptional copy. With tipped-in at end the prospectus for this work listing the plates. The city views comprise: Canterbury (2), York (2), Bath, Bristol, Carlisle, Chichester, Chester, Coventry, Durham (2), Ely, Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Lincoln (2), London (2), Lichfield, Norwich (2), Oxford, Peterborough, Rochester, Salisbury, Wells, Westminster, Winchester, & Worcester. The edition was strictly limited to 1,000 impressions and the original plates were destroyed in January 1829 after that number had been printed; this copy with its strong crisp engravings would have been an early impression.

        The Siege of Carlaverock in the XXVIII Edward I. A.D.MCCC; With the Arms of the Earls, Barons, and Knights, who were Present on the Occasion; with a Translation, a History of the Castle, and Memoirs of the Personages Commemorated by the Poet

      London: J. B. Nichols and Son. 1828. First Edition. Hardcover. Full calf rebacked and recornered with five raised bands on spine, gilt titles in second compartment and the other compartments with blind tooled decoration, boards with gilt fillet border and blind tooled decoration, aeg, marbled endpapers with bookplate on front pastedown, tissue guarded coloured frontis, title page printed in red and black, text illustrated with the arms of the nobles present at the siege and these nicely hand coloured, internally clean and bright. The poem "Siege of Carlaverock" is the only contemporary record of the seige of that castle in July 1300. This account is thought to have been written by the Fransiscan, Walter of Exeter and is noteworthy for several reasons. Perhaps firstly because it provides contemporary desciptions of the appearance and equipment of a late 13th century army and the manner in which they set about besieging a castle. It also contains the accurate blazon of over 100 peers of the realm, here reproduced in colour. The book presents a history of the castle itself, followed by the poem, the original text with the translation on the facing page, with the last section made up of short biographies of the worthies mentioned in the poem. Carlaverock castle is a triangular moated castle in south west Scotland. The siege of the castle in 1300 eventually ended, when having held up the might of the English army for some considerable time, the garrison of just sixty men finally surrendered. , Folio , xxxii + 380 pp .

Giacomo Costantino Beltrami was a naturalist and explorer who left Italy for Europe after a period of political persecution, then journeyed to America where he traveled from Pittsburgh down the Ohio and up the Mississippi to Ft. Anthony; then to Canada, down the Red River, across to the Missouri and down the Mississippi to New Orleans. For a while he had joined up with an expedition led by Major Stephen Long in 1823 but left to travel again on his own after relations with Long soured. Vol. II. is "almost entirely devoted to the author?s travels among the North-western Indians, of whom he gives some novel particulars. The narrations of what he witnessed are tinged with the peculiar glow of the author?s temperament. Beltrami must have moved in a gigantic world, if he saw external objects through the same media with which he viewed his own person and accomplishments, " Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 28.

        Vues de Stockholm et de ses Environs. Dessinées d´aprés Nature et Lithographiées par J. F. O.

      Imp. de J. P. Gjöthström / Tryckt af Gjöthström. [Ca. 1828] 42 x 29,5 cm. Wrapper + 4 lithographs. Brown wrapper with printed title at the front. This is the corrected second state of the wrapper with two "e" in Lithographiées. The first state has only one "e". A crease across the wrapper, otherwise as new.. A charming and romantic work by the swedish crown prince Oscar (crowned Oscar I in 1844). The prince had real artistic talent and was quite interested in the lithographic technique. The plates depict the royal castle Rosersberg and its environs. They are: "Rosersberg", "Vue de la ruine", "Vue du Temple" and "Vue de la Grotte". The plates are signed JFO in the stone. The name "Rosersberg" is printed at the back of the wrapper. According to the Royal Library and Wieselgren the work should contain two additional plates depicting the royal castle Haga. These two plates have an entierly different charchter and no wrapper is known. Instead of JFO, they are signed Oscar in the stone. A second part with these plates might have been planned, but never finnished. No definitive evidence exists that these two plates indeed belongs to the present work, eventhough it is likely. Very rare

        SELECT VIEWS OF GLASGOW AND ITS ENVIRONS

      Published by Joseph Swan Glasgow: Published by Joseph Swan, 1828. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 276 x 216 mm (10 7/8 x 8 1/2"). 4 p.l., xvi, [1] (fly title), 91, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Handsome 19th century polished calf, covers with elaborate ruled and floral roll frame in gilt and blind, raised bands decorated with four gilt rules terminating in an arabesque at either end, gilt compartments formed by thick, thin, and dotted rules, tan morocco title label, turn-ins tooled in blind, all edges gilt. WITH 33 ENGRAVED SCENIC PLATES PRINTED ON INDIA PAPER AND MOUNTED, the engravings done by Joseph Swan after drawings by J. Feming and J. Knox. Original tissue guards (one missing).Very thin crack along top three inches of front joint (the joints otherwise not seriously worn), one large and two small abrasions to lower cover, but the original decorative binding solid, especially lustrous, and altogether pleasing. A hint of foxing (only) to some plates (two plates a bit more foxed), endpapers and first few leaves at front and back with faint discoloration at corners (apparently from glue), otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY--fresh, bright, and clean throughout, and with first-rate impressions of the engravings. This book differs from other travel books of the day in its exclusive focus on a city--and not an exotic foreign city, but one known more for its industry than its scenery. Indeed, it would be difficult to name another work in this genre with views featuring smokestacks as well as cathedrals. However, at the time the present book was printed, Glasgow was known as the "Second City of the British Empire" for its important contributions to the economy, and was proud to be a city of what was then understood to be progress. The scenes here, by the capable engraver Joseph Swan (1796-1872), do not depict depressing views of dark satanic mills, but reveal a bustling modern city, where goods are constantly being produced, bought, sold, and shipped. Many of the engravings show citizens hard at work in various capacities, while others show them enjoying the leisure their prosperity affords. The "environs" of the title take us to the surrounding countryside, where the roofs, steeples, and smokestacks of the city on the River Clyde can be admired from a hillside advantage. Swan and John Leighton (fl.1828-40) collaborated on several scenic books about Scotland, with the others concentrating on the natural beauties of lakes and rivers.

        Six Quartiers de Paris

      1828. first edition. Extremely Rare MonnierMONNIER, Henri. Six Quartiers de Paris. Paris: [François Séraphin] Delpech, 1828. A rare suite of six hand colored lithographed plates, (without the hand colored lithographed title) otherwise complete as issued. Oblong quarto. Plate size: 11 x 14 1/8 inches (279 x 370 mm). Bound to contemporary style in full dark green morocco. Gilt ruled borders. Gilt panel. Gilt lettering and ornaments to spine. Restoration to lower corner of plate four, otherwise a fin e copy.According to the ABPC Index, since 1923 only three copies have come to auction (1938, 1949, 1979). There are only three copies in institutional holdings worldwide.The plates:1. Le Marais2. Quartier St. Denis3. Quartier de la Bourse4. Chaussée d'Antin5. Faubourg St. Honoré6. Le Faubourg St. GermainFor reasons unknown, Ray identifies this suite as being by Eugene Lami, despite the plates clearly identified as by Monnier; the only copy to come to auction in the last thirty-five years is also identified Lami as the artist. Melcher, however, correctly identifies the suite as Monnier's, as does Marie (Marie, Aristide. Henri Monnier 1799-1877. Paris, 1931) and Champfleury. Curiously, the only copy in institutional holdings, that in the Morgan Library, belonged to Ray but though the note is under Lami's authorship the Responsibility detail in OCLC/RILN clearly states: "par Monnier.""Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London…On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation" (Ray, p. 199).François Séraphin Delpech was a French lithographer, mainly of portraits and costumes after his contemporaries.  His portrait lithographs are in the collection of Britain's National Portrait Gallery and the Louvre. He also lithographed the work of others, as here.Marie pp. 296-302. Melcher, The Life and Times of Henri Monnier, p. 211.
