      London. . 1830 - [6],[2 blank leaves],[18]pp. plus 146 lithographic plates (some folding). Elephant folio. Modern half blue morocco and cloth, raised bands. Some slight foxing in margins of a few plates. Overall internally very good. This important series of topographical views and illustrations of Mayan artifacts, based on drawings made in 1805-7 by the French captain, Guillermo Dupaix, is the fourth volume of Lord Kingsborough's monumental eleven-volume ANTIQUITIES OF MEXICO. It is by far the most desirable volume of the set, since it is the only one with topographical views of the sites as they appeared at the beginning of the 19th century. The handsome lithographs depict Palenque, Mitla, and other important Mayan ruins. In addition, there are lithographs of ancient Mexican sculptures from specimens in the British Museum. There are also plates depicting the GIRO DEL MUNDO of Gemilli Careri, including an engraving of the Mexican calendar taken from a painting once owned by Boturini. Other volumes of this work are sometimes found with colored plates; however, the plates in the present volume are never found colored (except for a few partially colored plans and the marvelous colored plate of the Mexican calendar taken from Gemilli's work mentioned above). This is the first publication of Dupaix's work, the most extensive series of views of the Mayan ruins to have appeared in print up to that time. His work was republished in a different format in Paris in 1833-34. The Kingsborough publication is the more lavish of the two versions, as well as having priority. A most important series of Meso- American views. SABIN 37800. RICH II:33.

        Collection of family documents from the archives of the Counts Sermage de Szomszedvár, descendants of the Hungarian conspirator Ferenc Nádasdy, including his last will and testament in a ms. copy with autogr. authentication by Empress Maria Theresia.

      Various places, c. 1660-1830. - 6 Imperial documents for members of the Nádasdy and Sermage families (issued by Franz Josef I, Franz I, Maria Theresia, Ferdinand I, and Ferdinand II), 4 portrait miniatures, several photographs and miniature coats-of-arms. Ferenc Nádasdy, a descendant of King Edward I Plantagenet and grandson of Ferenc Nádasdy, the "Black Prince" (1555-1604), who had led many successful campaigns against the Turks but is mainly remembered as husband of the "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Báthory (cf. T. Thorne, Countess Dracula. London 1998), served as Hungarian High Judge of the Crown Court. He was beheaded in Vienna on 30 April 1671 as one of the four principal leaders of the so-called Wesselényi conspiracy. The conspirators had conducted secret talks with France and Turkey for support against Emperor Leopold I; the conflict escalated when they arrested the Hungarian governor Count Rüdiger von Starhemberg. It was Nádasdy's failed attempt to throw off Habsburg rule that brought about Austria's absolutist and repressive regime in Hungary (cf. Encyclopaedia Britannica, s. v. "Wesselény Conspiracy"). Nádasdy's fortune and property were seized by the Crown, but the Emperor is said to have returned most of it to several of his children. Similarly, the change of name originally demanded of the sons was not enacted, as they served in high positions of church and state under their true name (cf. Wurzbach XX, 16). A fine ivory miniature portrait of Ferenc Nádasdy that was passed on within the family until the 19th century bears witness to the uninterrupted veneration of the executed national hero. The portrait is accompanied by an explanatory document by Nádasdy's great-granddaughter to her son, the poet and statesman Karl Johann Peter Graf Sermage von Szomszedvár (1792-1851). The 19-page document in booklet form prepared for Joseph Graf Nádasdy contains the text of several last wills and entailments concerning the family and bears Mariua Theresia's autogr. authentication and seal; it is countersigned by Nikolaus Palffy. The miniature portraits of Nádasdy's descendants by some of the most highly regarded portrait painters of their times, such as Wenzel Schránil (1821-84) and Georg Koberwein (1820-76), bear witness to the eminent position that the family had regained by the 19th century. - Detailed list upon request. Cf. Claudia Ham, Graf Franz III. Nádasdy. Held oder Rebell (Vienna 1991).

        Fleet Street Prison

      1830 - A fine watercolour of a debtor in Fleet Street Prison, by the celebrated English painter Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Virtually en grisaille , this is an exceptionally carefully drawn watercolour of the grille on Farringdon Street, built into the wall of Fleet Prison so that inmates could beg passersby for coins. Over the grille in the lunette formed by the arch are the words: "Pray Remember Poor Debtors Having No Allowance". A gray haired man stands and calls out to the empty sidewalk. Fleet Prison was run for profit, and the wardens and guards basically lived by extorting the prisoners, who had to pay for room and board. They were subject to all sorts of mistreatment. Fleet Prison was built in 1197, burnt down and re-built several times, finally closed in 1844 and demolished in 1846. Thomas Hosmer Shepherd was one of the most esteemed watercolourists of his day. An industrious painter and draftsman, Shepherd produced a wealth of images illustrating street scenes and old buildings in London. His handsome paintings combine a natural quality attentive to detail, making them some of the most appealing views of the metropolis. Shepherd worked almost exclusively for the eminent publisher Frederick Crace. His illustrations grace the pages of some of the era's most important texts, including "Metropolitan Improvements, or London in the Nineteenth Century", "A Picturesque Tour of the Regents Canal", and "London and its Environs in the Nineteenth Century". Dictionary of National Biography. Watercolour. Signed l.l. "T. Hosmer Shepherd" In excellent condition with bright fresh colour. Lower left corner has been expertly in-filled where a small section of paper was missing. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Mexico: Impr. del ciudadano Alejandro Valdés, 1829-1830. - Three volumes. [6],xx,277,xxxi,279-350,[7]; [6],397,xlvi,[9]; [4],339[4]pp. Lacks folding plate in first volume. Small quarto. Later brown half morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Rubbed at extremities; boards lightly scuffed. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Bright and clean internally. Very good. Father Sahagún's life as a teacher of boys from high-ranking Nahautl families and as a student of their language and history is well known, and long has been. But the original 16th-century manuscript of his history of pre- Conquest Mexico in Nahuatl lay unpublished in the Laurentian library in Florence, Italy, until the 20th century; and his own translation of it suffered a similar fate until the great 19th-century historian Carlos María de Bustamante found that manuscript in the library of the monastery of San Francisco de Tolosa de Navana, and published this edition. Father Sahagún's native students and their families clearly "opened up," as we would now say, to him and his project of recording the facts and lore of their clearly then- vanishing culture in their own language; and his text brims with firsthand information gleaned from them on astronomy, astrology, myths, social structure, language, history, gemology, warfare, and literature, to single out a few fields of study. Bustamante added explanatory notes and amplifying texts from collateral sources such as Alvaro de Tezozomoc, Sigüenza y Góngora, and his own writings. PALAU 284994. FIELD 1438. SABIN 74950. H.

        Smugglers Attacked

      Published by J. Moore, at his Frame Manufactory 1 West Street, St. Martin's Lane, London 1830 - A dramatic print depicting smugglers being apprehended by the police, after a painting by the celebrated English sporting artist, S. J. E. Jones. This impressive aquatint by Charles Hunt is after a painting by the celebrated sporting artist Samuel John Egbert Jones. Jones was active in London at mid-century and made a name for himself as a painter of sporting subjects. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the British Institution, and many of his fine works were published and engraved for the London print shops. The painting takes as its subject a poem by the noted London playwright, William Thomas Moncrieff. As with many English genre paintings at this period, the work is moralistic in tone and content. Unlawful behavior receives its just recompense and wrong doings never go unnoticed. The scene explodes with drama as a group of policemen break in on a band of smugglers, who desperately attempt to escape. This is a wonderful example of Jones' superb work and a fascinating image which speaks to the taste and temperament of the age. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on thick wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some matt staining along the edges of the sheet and some minor foxing in the margins. Image size: 20 7/8 x 16 15/16 inches.

        Havell Terns at the Shore

      London, circa 1830 - Robert Havell, Jr. (1793-1878) Havell Terns at the Shore Oil on canvas Canvas size: 25” x 30” London, circa 1830 Provenance: The Family of Robert Havell, Jr. Robert Havell, Jr. was the principal engraver of Audubon's Birds of America, the most significant natural history publication of all time. His aquatint engraving of John James Audubon's Birds of America is now recognized as a significant artistic achievement in its own right and an essential component of the success of Birds of America. During his collaboration with Audubon, Havell drew inspiration from and made creative contributions to the great master of bird painting, creating magnificent works in the style of Audubon. The remarkable energy of the painting paired with the dramatic motion at the center of the canvas make for an arresting scene as a small cluster of Terns stand or hover at the waters edge, preparing to scan the water for a meal. The painting, which features borrowed details from several Birds of America plates, signifies the admiration Havell felt for his revered colleague. Audubon undoubtedly returned his affection, as he named a species of Tern after his friend and engraver.

        View of Kailua Hawaii (Kailua-Kona, Big Island)

      Lahaina, Maui 1830 - View of Kailua Hawaii (Kailua-Kona, Big Island) Miss Thurston, Attributed to possibly be Eliza Thurston (1807-1873) Copper-plate engraving by Kapohoni at Lahainaluna Seminary Press Lahaina, Maui: Late 1830s 18" x 29 1/2" framed This spectacular panoramic view is of Kailua, now Kailua-Kona, looking towards the ocean, with palm trees, thatched shacks, a few more solid buildings and a church. When American missionaries arrived in Hawaii, they discovered that there was no written form of the Hawaiian language. Lorrie Andrews (1795-1868), an American missionary to Hawaii and judge, opened the first post-secondary school for Hawaiians called the Lahailuna Seminary. This central location on the island of Maui, two miles inland from the village of Lahaina, was called Lahainaluna, or “upper Lahaina.” The first class of 25 began in September 1831 to receive training as teachers. Andrews also established a printing house at the Lahainaluna Seminary in order to print a Hawaiian dictionary, bibles, hymnals, and teaching materials. The Lahainaluna students published the first newspaper west of the Rocky Mountains, Ka Lama Hawaii, and were involved in the first case of counterfeiting currency in Hawaii. Lahainaluna Seminary eventually split into Lahainaluna High School which exists today as a public high school, and what evolved into the University of Hawaii. The Miss Thurston, who made the drawings from which these engraving are made, is speculated to be Eliza Thurston, the Australian artist, who could have been in Hawaii in the 1830’s. Her husband was a traveling salesman who died in New Jersey in 1847. After his death she immigrated to Sydney.

        An English and Japanese and Japanese and English vocabulary. Compiled from native works

      Batavia: printed by lithography. 1830. "First edition of the first Japanese-English dictionary, printed on a lithographic press at Batavia, the present day city of Jakarta, Indonesia; 8vo, pp. viii, [2], 344; text largely in triple column, with the Japanese printed in both Roman and Japanese characters together with English equivalents; later half calf over marbled boards, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine, marbled edges, with a note on the verso of the front free endpaper ""3 dollars - Hong Kong. Bound 1860. Arthur Paget November 10 1857."" A very good copy, in a quarter red morocco clamshell box. Walter Henry Medhurst (1796-1857) was an English missionary who served an apprenticeship in the printing trade before joining the Missionary Society. He was sent to Malacca in 1817 where he spent almost 20 years doing Protestant missionary work in what is now Indonesia. After the Opium War he moved to Shanghai in order to assist in a translation of the New Testament into Chinese, and remained in China until his return to England in 1856. & & Medhurst's long career in the Far East made him familiar not only with Malay and Chinese, but also with Japanese. Although he never visited Japan, he set about compiling the present work from whatever sources he could find at hand. As for the quality of printing, Medhurst writes in his introduction that ""the printing needs a thousand excuses; but it must be remembered that the work has been executed at a Lithographic press, by a self-taught artist, and in a warm climate, where the Lithography often fails; also that the whole has been written by a Chinese, who understands neither English nor Japanese."" He also laments that there was no suitable paper available. & & Medhurst went on to publish a Chinese dictionary and conversation book, but this is his first book, as well as the first book from his amateur press. & & Not in Trubner's Oriental Catalogue (1882); not in Vancil; Astor Catalogue, p. 146; Zaunmuller, col. 214; 25 copies in OCLC (13 in the U.S.).

        General View of Niagara Falls

      - A beautifully observed and typically detailed work from Nicolino Calyo in the classical Italian 'veduta' or 'view' tradition. Nicolino Calyo's work is well-represented in American museums and institutions, with examples at the White House, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the New York Historical Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Belmont Mansion in Nashville, the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Maryland and the Museum of the City of New York. Calyo was born in Naples, Italy, where he studied art at the Royal Academy. After some time travelling in Europe (he apparently lived briefly in both Malta and Spain) he emigrated to the United States in about 1830, setting up a studio initially in Baltimore. He left for Philadelphia and the north in about June 1835, arriving in New York in time to record the disastrous Great Fire of 16 and 17 December 1835 (two of the resulting pictures were later reproduced in aquatint by by William James Bennett [1789-1844]). Calyo subsequently made New York his home and the city directories from 1838 to 1855 all list him as either a 'portrait and landscape painter' or a 'professor of painting.' By the late 1840s his Italian-born son John A. Calyo (1818-1893) had joined him and they advertised as 'N. Calyo & Son,' historical painters and teachers. The original reason for his leaving Italy had been political, and given this background it is not surprising to find that his New York home became a gathering place for other European exiles (including the future Napoleon III [1808-1873]). Calyo apparently made one significant return visit to Europe, when he travelled to Spain (where he worked as Court painter to Queen Maria Cristina [1806-1878]), but he returned to New York in 1874 and remained there for the rest of his life. Calyo is best known for the watercolour and gouache views of American cities and landmarks (such as the present work) but he also painted scenes taken from the Mexican War of 1846-1848 and an enormous forty-foot panorama of the Connecticut River. He exhibited paintings at American Society of Painters in Watercolor in New York between 1867 and 1869. The style he employs is quite distinctive among American artists, and as Kathleen Foster notes, his Italian training 'dominates his method . . . conditioning his liberal use of gouache, which imparts an opaque, slightly chalky surface to his work, setting it apart from the English style of transparent watercolor more familiar to American artists of that period.'

(Presumably Marshall would have bought these plates from McLean, while restriking the remaining plates.) Scarce, in any event, in any edition or state. The work may have been inspired by the divorce proceedings by George IV against his wife, Caroline from a decade earlier, and in keeping with that, the sympathies of the caricaturist clearly lies with the wife. The binding is heavily worn. Foxing to the prelims. Clean otherwise.

        Designs for Ornamental Villas

      James Carpenter, London 1830 - Quarto, lithograph title and 96 lithograph plates; possibly lacking additional letterpress title (?), lithograph title foxed and minor foxing to some early plates, but otherwise a very attractive copy in modern quarter calf. Third edition of this classic architectural pattern book. Robinson (1776-1858) was a prolific and versatile designer of country mansions and picturesque cottages. In the present work he provides sixteen designs, some of which were executed, for twelve residences, two lodges, a garden house, and stables. "The range of styles represented perhaps was the most eclectic in British architectural literature to date" (Archer): Swiss, Grecian, Palladian, Old English, Castellated, Ancient Manor House, Modern Italian, Anglo-Norman, Henry VII, Elizabethan, Ancient Timber, and Tuscan. Each design is illustrated in plan, elevation, and 'Scenic View'. Most of the scenic views were drawn on stone by J.D. Harding and printed on India paper. Of course Robinson's promotion of the cottage orné proved influential in Australia, where it became a popular architectural style with colonial architects (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 354).
