        ANTIQUITIES OF MEXICO: COMPRISING FAC-SIMILES OF ANCIENT MEXICAN PAINTINGS AND HIEROGLYPHICS.TOGETHER WITH THE MONUMENTS OF NEW SPAIN.THE WHOLE ILLUSTRATED BY MANY VALUABLE INEDITED MANUSCRIPTS BY AUGUSTINE AGLIO.VOL. IV.

      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]

        HISTORIA GENERAL DE LAS COSAS DE NUEVA ESPAÑA.

      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.

        CHIPPEWA CHIEF PEECHEKIR, ALSO CALLED BUFFALO: A HEAD STUDY BY CHARLES BIRD KING FOR A PAINTING LATER PUBLISHED IN McKENNEY AND HALL'S History of the Indian Tribes of North America].

      [Washington, D.C. ca. ]. 1830 - Black and white chalk with charcoal on gray/green paper, 10 1/4 x 6 3/8 inches. Unsigned. A beautiful image in fine condition. Peechekir (also called Peechekor and Buffalo) was "a solid, straight formed Indian," Col. Thomas McKenney recalled many years after meeting the Chippewa chief at a treaty ceremony in Michigan Territory circa 1825-27. This sketch is one of only sixteen known King studies of Indian heads. It was discovered in 1974 among family papers by Bayard Leroy King of Saunderston, Rhode Island, a descendant of Edward King, the artist's second cousin. The study is illustrated in Cosentino's THE PAINTINGS OF CHARLES BIRD KING, and in Viola's INDIAN LEGACY OF CHARLES BIRD KING. According to Horan, King copied this head from a James Otto Lewis painting, but no such picture survives, and the idea is highly unlikely given the extreme difference in the artists' styles. Had it existed, that Lewis painting would probably have been lost, as were many Lewis paintings and the King oil of Peechekir, in the 1865 Smithsonian fire. Leonard Viola believes this drawing is a life study by King. The McKenney and Hall HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA print of Peechekir is clearly based on this sketch, and it may well have been sketched specifically for the McKenney and Hall. To that point, a large area on the reverse of the drawing is covered with charcoal, creating a "carbon" type paper which allowed the drawing to be traced over, the traced lines transferring the charcoal onto another surface such as a piece of paper or printing plate. A few blind incised lines are visible in raking light on the front and back of the drawing. Charles Bird King (1785-1862) was born in Newport, Rhode Island. He trained in London under Benjamin West. He eventually settled in Washington, D.C. in 1819, calculating it was a good base for one who sought to earn a living mainly by portraiture. He was thus in the right place when Commissioner of Indian Affairs Thomas L. McKenney decided to add portraits of leading Indian chiefs to the collection of artifacts he had begun when he became superintendent of Indian trade in 1816. McKenney conceived the idea of an Indian portrait gallery at the time of the visit of a large delegation of Indians from the Upper Missouri to Washington in 1821-22. King was commissioned to execute the portraits. An exceptionally handsome likeness of a Chippewa chief, sketched by one of the most famous and important, avidly collected portrait-makers of 19th-century American Indians, this study is one of the last fine Indian portraits by Charles Bird King still to be found in the art market.

        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.). No copies at auction since 1967; very uncommon in the trade."

        Macrocercus Aracanga (Red and Yellow Macaw or Scarlet Macaw)

      London 1830 - Edward Lear (1818-1888) is fondly remembered for his books of nonsense and for popularizing the limerick, but he was also a prolific watercolorist, who as a young man earned his livelihood and achieved recognition as an illustrator of birds and animals. Born in the north London suburb of Holloway on 12 May 1812, he was the youngest of twenty-one children born to Jeremiah and Ann Lear. His childhood was one of outward prosperity but in 1825, his father, a stockbroker, was ruined by a financial crisis brought on by unfortunate speculation, and consigned to the debtor’s prison. At the age of fifteen the young and somewhat sickly Edward had to start earning his own living. Initially, he tinted drawings of birds for shops and printsellers, also doing work for various hospitals and medical men - “I began to draw for bread and cheese about 1827,” he wrote “but only did uncommon queer shop-sketches - selling them for prices varying from ninepence to four shillings; coloring prints, screens and fans; awhile making morbid disease drawings, for hospitals and certain doctors of physic.” This training suited him well and at an early age he was already taking pupils of his own. In 1830, at the age of 18, Lear obtained permission to work as a draughtsman at the Zoological Society gardens, located at Regent’s Park. The following year he moved with his sister, Ann, to nearby lodgings in Albany Street, in order to be close to his work and during the course of the next two years devoted his time to recording the different members of the parrot family. He was encouraged in this task by N. A. Vigors, John Gould and Lord Stanley and between 1830 and 1832 Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots was published in parts. The publication of this remarkable work marked thebeginning of what was to become an unrivaled reputation and the quality of the illustrations have often been favorably compared to those of Lear’s American contemporary, John James Audubon. In Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, Christine Jackson describes the artist’s painstaking approach to his work: “Lear worked in great detail, outlining every feather and filling in the details with fine lines. This scientific accuracy extended to every part of the bird, from the beak to the claws. He noted on the plate the scale of the bird as shown in relation to its life-size, whenever he had reduced it . . . The colouring was done with opaque watercolours with touches of egg-white for parts of the feather requiring sheen, and for the eye, to add that ‘life-touch.’” The result combines “the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and intuitive sympathy for animal intelligence.” Lear’s publication was innovative in several significant ways. Unlike previous bird artists, he drew whenever possible from life rather than stuffed specimens, thus combining anatomical accuracy and subtlety of detail with the pose and expression of the living, moving bird. Lear also employed the relatively new medium of lithography which, by dispensing with the need for professional engravers, allowed him to retain complete artistic control over all stages of his work. This, the first large-folio bird book completed in England, and the only separate ornithological work produced by Lear, marked an important turning point in the history of natural history illustration, ushering in the transition from engraving to lithography as the preferred medium. The printer, Charles Hullmandel of London, was the pioneer of lithography in England, having obtained his patent from Alois Senefelder, the inventor of the process. Edward Lear’s Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots is an extremely rare work and is highly prized by collectors. It was the first illustrated book ever devoted to a single family of birds and only 175 copies of the book were ever published.

        Strategonon

      Doll, Ansbach 1830 - Rare War Board-Game Book Aretin, Wilhelm, Freiherr von. Strategonon. Versuch die Kriegf hrung durch ein Spiel anschaulich darzustellen. . . . 8vo. xxxv, [1], 145, [3]pp. 3 hand-colored folding plates, 1 folding lithographed table, 4 folding letterpress tables. Ansbach: Dollfuss, 1830. 209 x 115 mm. Old marbled boards, slightly rubbed & stained. Old stamps on title, light browning, a little foxing. Very good copy. First Edition. Very rare, with only one location in NUC (1983 fiche catalog, showing only the Cleveland Public Library copy). Describes what the author considers the most true-to-life war board-game yet published, which he believes especially appropriate for advanced cadets, who can learn to be good officers from playing it. Baron von Aretin, a lieutenant in the royal Bavarian light cavalry (second regiment, to be precise), belonged to a family distinguished in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries for public service (see NBG). He writes in his introduction that he has based his war game on one devised in 1803 by his uncle Baron Georg von Aretin, which was never published. Von Aretin gives an overview and critique of war board-games from the seventeenth century, especially those of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. These games, derived from the rules and playing board of chess, have in recent times come closer to a true-to-life simulation of war situations, but are on account of lack of verisimilitude, or cumbersomeness of the board, or length of time needed to play, inferior to the game he describes in his book. Von Aretin has factored into his game natural troop movements, considerations of equipment, terrain and time of year, the working of various weapons, supplies, rules, headquarters and commanders, desertion, sieges, destruction of bridges, naval warfare, etc. The three folding hand-colored plates with approx. fifty figures show the game pieces; the five folding tables give data on the march of troops and the working of weapons in different contexts.

        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.'

        Matrimonial Ladder, or Such things are!

      London: W. Marshall, 1830. Paper pastedown, cloth. Very Good. Twenty hand-colored lithographs, including title and concluding vignette. 8vo. 21 by 14 cm. Five plates are watermarked 1825 and Thomas McLean, who issued the same book five years prior to Marshall, making this a mixed state. (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.
