         2 Extr. Rare Antique Prints-PROOF-HUMMINGBIRDS-COLIBRIS-Freres Pauquet-1830

      - Plate 2: Le Colibris Grenat - Le Huppe-Col - Le Rubis Topaze.' (Garnet Throated Hummingbird - Crested Green Hummingbird - Ruby Topaz Hummingbird.) The second plate is actually a unique proof print before lettering, additional engraving / etching and final coloring. Sold as a set. Original hand coloured engraving and stipple engraving on vellin type paper. Description: These delicate plates originate from an unknown work or series of plates. We have not been able to find any reference anywhere. As the collection this originates from also contains these proof prints, we assume this plate to be extremely scarse and probably a workshop item, never bound. The Pauquet brothers did engrave birds in the more encyclopedic but rare works: �Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux d'Europe.� (not dated c. 1830) and �Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux Exotiques.�, by C.L. Lemaire and Florent Prevost, first publ. 1836. On our plates bird and other species are combined with plants and appear to be designed for decorative rather than ornithological purpose. Age estimate: 1830.Artists and Engravers: Engravers Hippolyte Louis Em. Pauquet (born 1797) and Polydore Pauquet (ca 1800 - 1860). The freres Pauquet, were reknowned 19th-century illustrators of a number of very popular and nowdays expensive works. Condition: Image good. General age related toning and light staining. Some remains of pen drawing/writing on rear, which has been practically removed. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: C160-13 The overall size is ca. 10.6 x 7.9 inch. The image size is ca. 6.5 x 4.7 inch. The overall size is ca. 27 x 20 cm. The image size is ca. 16.5 x 12 cm. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Original pencil drawing by Jacques Arago of a village in rural France.

      [France, 1830]. Graphite on paper, 175 x 235 mm; signed and dated at lower right, 'J. Arago 1830'; in good condition, with tiny loss at top left corner and a few spots of foxing; verso with two old tape marks at top edge; unframed. Jacques Etienne Victor Arago (1790-1855) was a writer, artist and explorer who travelled with Louis-Claude de Saulces de Freycinet on his famous 1817-20 voyage around the world on the Uranie, which Arago recounts in his Voyage Autour du Monde (1823). Arago produced a number of important drawings and engravings of the various peoples and fauna that he encountered during this voyage. Arago was born in Estagel, a small French town near Perpignan in the south of France. This sketch is likely to depict a scene somewhere in the south of France, possibly in Arago's hometown, or another location in the vicinity. Provenance: Private collection, Austria.

         Physiologie du Mariage [2 tomes / Two Volumes]

      Levavasseur. Hardcover. Paris, 1830. 8vo, quarter morocco over marbled paper, 332 + 352 pp. First edition. The first edition of Balzac's important work, well preserved in a contemporary binding. "...an extraordinary kind of precursor to the self-help manual. Balzac was thirty when it was published, and already he felt he knew enough about the institution of marriage to advise others on the matter. And maybe he did: though he hadn't married yet, he'd already perfected the art of the aphorism. This book is full of them. 'To saunter is a science; it is the gastronomy of the eye. To take a walk is to vegetate; to saunter is to live.' 'A man ought not to marry without having studied anatomy, and dissected at least one woman.' And 'Marriage is a fight to the death, before which the wedded couple ask a blessing from heaven, because it is the rashest of all undertakings to swear eternal love; the fight at once commences and victory, that is to say liberty, remains in the hands of the cleverer of the two.'" - Paris Review. A very good set, well preserved in sound bindings, with some light foxing to contents and darkening to spines and two scuffs to one board, very good condition overall / tres bon etat. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Very Good. 1830. First Edition.

Publisher's ads in parts 1, 2, 12, 13, 23, and 25; Sweet's change of address slip in part 20. Publisher's tan wrappers. Housed in a half green morocco box. First edition in the very rare original parts of Sweet's highly decorative practical guide to the cultivation of the Rock-rose or Cistus: one of the most beautiful family of flowering plants then available. Cistus species are upright evergreen shrubs, having mostly pink or purple flowers, which resemble roses. Originally published in 28 parts, at three shillings per part, between July 1825 and January 1830, each plate shows a single variety of Cistus or Rock-rose and is accompanied by text giving a taxonomic description and instructions for the plant's cultivation. In the years following completion, the work was reissued as a single volume, however sets of the first edition in the original parts, as here, are very rare. Robert Sweet "was born in 1783 at Cockington, near Torquay, Devonshire. When sixteen years old he was placed under his half-brother, James Sweet, at that time gardener to Richard Bright of Ham Green, near Bristol, with whom he remained nine years. He subsequently had charge of the collection of plants at Woodlands, the residence of John Julius Angerstein . In 1810 Sweet entered as a partner in the Stockwell nursery, and when that was dissolved in 1815, became foreman to Messrs. Whitley, Brames, & Milne, nurserymen, of Fulham, till 1819, when he entered the service of Messrs. Colvill. While in their employ he was charged with having received a box of plants knowing them to have been stolen from the royal gardens, Kew, but was acquitted after trial at the Old Bailey on 24 Feb. 1824. In 1826 he left the Colvills, and till 1831 occupied himself almost wholly in the production of botanical works, while still cultivating a limited number of plants in his garden at [Pomona Place] Parson's Green, Fulham. In 1830 he moved to [Cook's Ground, King's Road] Chelsea, where he had a larger garden and cultivated for sale to his friends? He died on 20 Jan. 1835. He had been elected a fellow of the Linnean Society on 14 Feb. 1812. The botanical genus Sweetia was named in his honour by De Candolle in 1825" (DNB).

         Album of Indian watercolours and lithographs

      1830 - 48 watercolours, 2 pen & ink drawings (measuring 130 by 210mm laid down on leaves measuring 210 by 290mm) and 18 lithographs (measuring variously 200 by 275mm, 135 by 205mm or 120 by 110mm). Nearly all captioned, dated and signed in ink. Oblong 4to album. Half red morocco over red buckram, spine elaborately gilt. Bombay and elsewhere, March 1829 - A substantial collection of expertly executed watercolours. The bulk of these are dated March 1829, and were probably completed while Ridge was on holiday. They are mostly sea and riverscapes along the west coast of India, nearly always with a boat in the foreground. Commencing with Point de Galle in Ceylon, the images include scenes of Malabar Coast, Kochi, the Hoogly River at Kolkata, Bombay (from Malabar Point, the harbour entrance), Trombay, Salsette Island, Elephanta Island, Porbandar, Vasai, and Tannah, before turning inland to Bhor Ghat and Kankroli. These are followed by the lithographs which were likely printed at Charles D'Oyly's Behar Amateur Lithographic Press, which he established in 1825 and whose most productive years were from 1828 to 1831. George Ridge (1804-1831) was born in Lambeth and entered the army as a cadet in 1821. The following year he arrived in India. He was made lieutenant in 1825 and transferred as Adjutant to the 4th Local Horse. He was made second-in-command in 1828, and was transferred again to the 9th Light Cavalry. Finally, he was promoted to captain in 1830 and died shortly thereafter in Neemuch. He was quite prolific in this time and numerous examples of his work are at the British Library as well as the National Army Museum.

         LETTERS ON DEMONOLOGY AND WITCHCRAFT, ADDRESSED TO J. G. LOCKHART, ESQ

      London: John Murray, 1830. FIRST EDITION. One of Scott's final works, this series of letters on the occult topics that had long fascinated him is offered here with the (more amusing than eerie) colored plates by George Cruikshank (1792-1878) that were printed and sold separately. Drawing on such classics as Reginald Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft," the eminent novelist examines ancient oracles, fairy superstitions, the practices and persecution of witches, and communication with the spirit world. Our copy contains the animated illustrations of Cruikshank, a self-educated artist who illustrated more than 850 books, with depictions of fairy hijinks, witchy frolics, and elfin mischief designed to elicit amusement rather than fear. These were not commissioned by Scott (who might have resented their lighthearted take on a topic that was serious to him), but were published by Cruikshank two months after the book appeared; they are not included in most copies. The present volume has the added benefit of an attractive binding by an eminent British workshop.. 148 x 94 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). ix, 402 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing scarlet morocco, gilt, by Bayntun of Bath (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with frame formed by multiple plain and dotted rules, calligraphic ornaments at corners, raised bands, spine compartments framed by plain and dotted rules, gilt titling, gilt ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.

         Woman's Love; The Phrenologists; The Jew of Arragon

      Smith Elder and Co; J. Onwhyn; Smith, Elder and Co, London 1830 - Second edition of the first title, first editions of the second and third titles. 8vo. Presentation copies. The author's entire dramatic output. "Throughout his career, whether in his poetry, his dramatic productions, or his journalistic work, Wade's writing is fired by a reformist zeal and progressive temper, an energy which was inspired by Shelley, who to the last remained Wade's ideal." -- Oxford DNB. Included here are the following: (a) [Wade, Thomas.] Woman's love; or, the triumph of patience. A drama, in five acts. First performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Wednesday, December 17th, 1828. Second edition. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1829. (b) Wade, Thomas. The phrenologists: a farce, in two acts. By Thomas Wade, author of "Woman's Love," a drama; &c. First performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Tuesday, January 12th, 1830. London: sold by J. Onwhyn; and may be had of all booksellers, 1830. (c) Wade, Thomas. The Jew of Arragon; or, the Hebrew queen. A tragedy, in five acts. By Thomas Wade, author of "Duke Andrea; or, Woman's Love", a drama. Performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Wednesday, October 20th, 1830. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1830. Each play is inscribed by Wade on the title-page, "Serle, Esqr. -- with the author's complts." The recipient was no doubt the dramatist, novelist and theater manager Thomas James Serle (1798-1889), who himself published half a dozen plays in the 1830s. This volume has the bookplate of Harry Buxton Forman, with his characteristic initials on a front flyleaf. Buxton Forman has listed the three titles, and added, "All good copies with author's autograph." Buxton Forman -- and because of him T. J. Wise as well -- was a great enthusiast of Wade. In 1895 he gathered together a number of Wade's scattered poems from manuscripts and journals, and published them with a long tribute as "Wade: The Poet and His Surroundings," in Vol. I of his Literary Anecdotes of the Nineteenth Century. Forman's praise was unstinting: "With the sole exception of Thomas Lovell Beddoes, no nineteenth-century English poet whose merit equals that of Thomas Wade has been so liberally neglected." Buxton Forman was not quite so enthusiastic about the literary quality of The Phrenologists, but he did recognize its scarcity: "If the little book were as excellent as it is rare, it would indeed be a treasure. So hard is it to find that Wade's widow was unable to say if it had ever been published or not" Provenance: Buxton Forman (bookplate) Slightly later cloth, spine titled in gilt Second edition of the first title, first editions of the second and third titles.

         ALS to Joseph Davies, from 49 Bedford Square, 8 Feb., 1830. ?I regret that you should imagine the absence of my reply to arise from a want of interest in the subject of your letter.?

      1830 1830 - 48 lines in a difficult hand, on 3 sides of folded 4to sheet with integral address leaf; sl. loss caused by seal, old folds, edge mounted onto larger 4to sheet. A long and engaging letter from Robert Owen to a fellow educationalist, Joseph Davies of Liverpool. Owen, 1771-1858, a successful mill owner, had spent his life trying to encourage social, educational and political reform for working communities, culminating in the utopian social experiments at New Lanark in Scotland and New Harmony in America. In 1830, after his involvement in both communities had ended, Owen continued to campaign for the education and improvement of working people. This correspondence with Davies, of whom little is known, is in response to a letter from Davies evidently setting out his philosophy on education. ?[Your letter] I perused with such attention for your ideas for the education of infants accord in all respects with my own.? Owen, although clearly impressed with Davies? philosophy, refuses to back him financially: ?It is not in my power to assist you in money matters for alas my powers are involved in this measure which I have put in practice to relieve the population form the distress which overwhelms it & I won?t prepare you to expect some difficulty in affecting satisfactory pecuniary arrangements. I have always found many obstacles opposed when money was to be abused for a future object? He signs off with a warm flourish wishing the recipient well with the success of their shared objectives: ?Time will not permit me to send more than my sincere wishes that you may attain the future accomplishments of your object which is so necessary to the formation of a superior character of the human race?
