        Smugglers Attacked

      London: Published by J. Moore, at his Frame Manufactory 1 West Street, St. Martin's Lane, circa 1830. 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. 23 x 19 inches. 25 5/8 x 21 inches. 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.

Backman, 1835. 8:o. Litograferat titelblad,188,(4) s. & 3 litograferade notblad. Två samtida mörkblå glättade pappbd. I synnerhet första bandet nött vid falsar och med skada upptill på ryggen. Den första delen tryckt på blåtonat papper. Ett bokmärke har lämnat avtryck på första delens titelblad och överst på detta kan man även ana en bortskrapad gammal namnteckning. På sina håll omfattande samtida kompletteringar i del I. Med J. A. Bredbergs respektive Elin och Carl Blidbergs stplr. J. Viktor Johanssons ex.. Johan Anders Wadman (1777-1837) vistades några terminer i Lund och blev 1800 student i Åbo. Några år senare hade han hunnit med en längre utlandsresa och att förskingra hela sitt fadersarv. Han bosatte sig i Göteborg och hankade sig där fram till sin död med tillfälliga arbeten under beskydd av professor C. F. Weltzin. Som diktare är han mest känd för sina i bellmansk anda kvicka tillfällighetsverser. Hans samlade arbeten utgavs, om än delvis censurerade, av Herman Bjursten 1855 och ånyo 1869 och 1877 av J. G. Carlén och C. H. Rydberg samt 1946 av bokens tidigare ägare J. V. Johansson. Som exempel på Wadmans kvickheter kan anföras: "Ack! Visst är det skönt, att stolt och modigt strida/ För den goda saken, för sitt fosterland;/ Till belöning sen, på knä vid kungens sida,/ Att få stryk och stjerna af hans hjelte-hand;/ Men att lemna bålen, innan den blir slut?/ Åh nej, äran väntar tills vi druckit ut." Kompletteringarna i del I består av de ursprungliga lydelserna i dikter som omarbetats av anständighetsskäl inför tryckningen

Finemans förgyllda namnetikett längst ned på ryggarna.. Setterwall Svensk historisk bibliografi 195. Detta var Georg Adlersparres sista litterära projekt. Hans avsikt verkar ha varit att efter en brett upplagd plan skriva sin samtids historia, men han hann aldrig längre än till förarbetena. Publikationen väckte stort uppseende särskilt på grund av där förekommande brev och uttalanden rörande 1809 års händelser av ännu levande eller för kort tid sedan avlidna personer, såsom Wetterstedt och Lars von Engeström m.fl. Adlersparre blev skarpt angripen från skilda håll, bl.a. av C. H. Anckarswärd, och en vidlyftig polemik blev följden, där den angripna energiskt försvarade sig på ett sätt, som kanske inte allt igenom var till hans fördel. Då en del av de publicerade dokumenten ansågs innehålla "ministeriella handlingar", väcktes åtal, varigenom man i första hand ville komma åt att näpsa förläggaren, Lars Johan Hierta, men undvika att direkt inblanda den mer fruktade verkliga utgivaren. Ansatsen misslyckades emellertid, och rättegången blev ett sensationsskådespel i stor stil, där den sjuttioåriga excellensen personligen uppträdde som svarande. Det hela slutade med att Adlersparre dömdes till böter

        "Grundrids af Bylókken Skillebæk ved Christiania"

      Tusj og penn på tykt papir, 40,5x57cm Christiania 1830-40 Interessant detaljplan med målestokk i alen over Nedre Skillebekk (nå Munkedamsveien 96 - 98) på bymarksiden. Kartet er åpenbart tegnet før jernbanen kom i 1872 og delte hagen i to. Inntegnet er bl.a. detaljer om ulike pære- og epletrær på området. I nord ser vi krysset Drammensveien/Munkedamsveien. I følge Mørchs uvurderlige bok om Frogners historie, var eiendommen eid av kjøpmann Peter Meyer rundt 1800 for så å bli solgt til bokhandleren Morten Hartman i 1821. Men allerede i 1824 ble løkken igjen solgt, nå til Norges første professor i medisin, anatomen Michael Skjeldrup som bebygget eiendommen som vist på kartet. Bygningene ligger der Framnesveien i dag går ned til Munkedamsveien. Etter Skjeldrups død i 1852 overtok Johan Collet Nedre Skillebekk og solgte øvre del til en assessor Blich for selv å beholde odden som stakk ut i Frognerkilen. Det var gjennom dette området jernbanen senere ble anlagt. Et så tidlig håndtegnet kart fra Frogner må regnes som en stor sjeldenhet. Det medfølger en gammel reproduksjon av kartet i litt mindre format.. Morten Ole Mørch "Frogner fra jordbruk og løkkeland til bydel" Bastionen forlag Oslo 2009, se side 44 - 47

Several pages have been expertly remargined at the fore edge (no loss) else this is a very good copy. Gift inscription on the front free endpaper dated 1832. Very rare and among the first American books to be illustrated with lithographic plates. The Cabinet of Natural History was started by brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 However, despite its relatively short life, it left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America," the text includes firsthand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are among the earliest of their kind. The plates include the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by one of the great names in 19th-century American art. The first volume (made up of twelve parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas. "Artistically, Vol. 1 is much the most important, for it contains the original plates by Thos. Doughty, famous painter and founding father of the Hudson River School" - Bennett. Indeed the plates in the later volumes are from a multitude of hands and sources. "The coloured plates are important - being the first coloured sporting prints made in America. There is only one earlier American book with coloured plates that I know of, and that is a treatise on Medical Botany - published in Philadelphia in 1817. Many of these coloured plates of animals and birds are charming, the colouring is soft, correct as to details, and all are well drawn" - Gee.

Ireland's History of Kent (4 vols., 1829–30), numerous views for Jones & Co.'s Wales Illustrated in a Series of Views (2 vols., 1830–31), and, as late as 1860, he contributed nineteen works to John Tillotson's Picturesque Scenery in Wales.

        Arion. Sammlung auserlesener Gesangstücke mit Begleitung des Pianoforte

      Leipzig: Robert Crayen, n.d. (c. 1830). Two oblong octavo volumes comprising seven parts. (118); (120); (122); (122); (120); 120; (ii), 120; (iv), (124)pp. A collection of sheet music and lyrics for pianoforte gathered from a variety of composers, including Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. This set features wrap-around fore-edge paintings by modern British artist Clare Brooksbank on both volumes depicting an interior view of a European opera house. The first volume shows the view from the seats looking toward the stage with the crowd seated; the second volume shows the view in the lobby area with the crowd standing, perhaps at intermission. Lining the upper edges of these scenes are a total of twelve portraits of great composers: there are, in addition to Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, portaits of Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Purcell, Handel, Schubert, Wagner, Chopin, Vivaldi, and Bach. Brooksbank’s work is not usually signed, but this set bears her initials at the bottom left corner of each painting. The set is in a contemporary binding by Charles Hering of green morocco with gilt lyre device in the center of both covers framed by a tooled floral motif. The lyre device is repeated in three spine compartments. German-born Hering built one of the pre-eminent binderies in London’s West End and was quite active during the late 18th and early 19th century. His work is described by Dibdin as having “strength, squareness and good style.” Occasional spotting throughout, else nearly fine. Front inner hinge started in volume one, slight wear to extremities of both volumes. Overall, an attractive set in an unusual format, with an an ambitious and accomplished fore-edge painting.

        THE POETICAL WORKS

      London: William Pickering, 1830. 165 x 105 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/8"). 30 p.l. (including the portrait), 252 pp. Contemporary black morocco (unsigned, but very possibly by Hayday), covers with border of three blind rules and with large complex gilt lyre centerpiece, flat spine with titling and curvilinear panelling in gilt in the Romantic style, gilt decorated turn-ins, all edges gilt, expertly rebacked, using original backstrip. In a blue buckram slipcase. WITH TWO FORE-EDGE PAINTINGS SHOWING ESHER PLACE, SURREY AND THE BRITISH MUSEUM, RUSSELL STREET. Printer's device on title page, frontispiece portrait of the author. Front joints and extremities slightly rubbed, minor tear in fore margin of one leaf, scattered minor foxing in text, otherwise an attractive copy, the restored binding entirely sound now, and the text clean, bright, and fresh. This volume contains the youthful poems as well as a 50-page biography of Henry Kirke White (1785-1806), who died of consumption while studying at Cambridge. The poems are in the Romantic mode, often strongly imbued with Christian fervor, usually exuding a love of life and the natural world, but sometimes shadowed by the prescient expectation of an early death. The volume ends with tributes to the poet, beginning with verses dedicated to him by Byron, who had a strong admiration for White. The two buildings featured on this double fore edge are shown with considerable architectural detail, and they have a great deal of historical interest. Shown on one side as it appeared in the 19th century, Esher Place in Surrey, whose tower still stands today, was originally built by William Waynflete (1395-1486). The building appears here as a massive castle connected by low crenellated walls to subsidiary dwellings. Waynflete rose from the position of headmaster of Winchester College to become bishop of Winchester and chancellor for Henry VI. An even more famous chancellor of England, Cardinal Wolsey, who served Henry VIII, also resided for a short time at Esher Place. In the other painting on our fore edge is a view of the British Museum. It is not the Greek Revival building of today, designed by Sir Robert Smirke, but the earlier structure on the same spot in Bloomsbury, which was leveled in 1842 to make way for the present edifice. This earlier building, known as Montagu House, was purchased in 1754 to serve as a museum. Our view of it depicts the building looming behind a low wall and amplified with the addition of the Townley Gallery built in 1804-08. The conjectural date of 1830 is perhaps corroborated to a degree by the historical facts surrounding the British Museum buildings, as it seems more likely to find a pre-1842 painting of an existing structure than a post-1842 painting showing a building that had by that time been demolished and that presumably was no longer thought to be architecturally pleasing.

        THE COMPLETE SERIES

      London: Printed by Charles Whittingham for William Pickering, 1830. The Complete 53-Volume Pickering Aldine Poets In Bindings that Have Hardly Ever Been Opened 159 x 102 mm (6 1/4 x 4"). 53 volumes. ESPECIALLY PRETTY POLISHED LIGHT BROWN CALF, ATTRACTIVELY GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on front flyleaf), covers with gilt double fillet border and gilt Aldine/Pickering anchor centerpiece, raised bands, spines in gilt compartments with scrolling foliate cornerpieces and looping stem centerpiece surrounded by a diamond frame of circlets and tiny stars, each spine with a red and green titling label and (at the bottom) a red date label, elaborately gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With 24 frontispiece portraits. Keynes, pp. 37-38. Spines uniformly faded to a darker brown, a number of small nicks or tiny scuffs to backstrips, slight offsetting from engraved frontispieces, but A FINE, AND IN MANY WAYS AN AMAZING, SET, the joints and remarkably bright covers almost entirely without wear, and the text pristine. In 1828 Pickering began to use the familiar anchor and dolphin device employed by the Aldus family of Venetian printers in the 16th century, and he had the same purpose behind his work as did his Aldine predecessors--to provide the public with well printed texts that were nevertheless obtainable even by a person of modest means. In 1830 Pickering began publishing his famous "Aldine Poets" series, a project that, with reissues, covered more than 20 years and involved the production of 53 volumes (not counting reprints), each carefully edited by one of a group of reputable scholars that included Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas, Alexander Dyce, and John Mitford. Our finely bound complete set is comprised of the works of the following poets: Mark Akenside (1 volume), James Beattie (1), Robert Burns (3), Samuel Butler (2), Chaucer (6), Charles Churchill (3), William Collins (1), William Cowper (3), Dryden (5), William Falconer (1), Oliver Goldsmith (1), Thomas Gray (1), Henry Howard (1), Milton (3), Thomas Parnell (1), Pope (3), Matthew Prior (2), Shakespeare (1), Spenser (5), Swift (3), James Thomson (2), Henry Kirke White (1), Sir Thomas Wyatt (1), and Edward Young (2). Zaehnsdorf almost never disappoints, and these retrospective full calf volumes are attractively designed and expertly done. The volumes open stiffly, and it's clear that they have basically remained unread since their publication.

        The Canterbury Tales of Chaucer; with an Essay on his Language and Versification, an Introductory Discourse, Notes, and a Glossary

      London: William Pickering, 1830. Half-Calf. Fine. Second Pickering edition, edited by Thomas Tyrwhitt (1730–86). Five octavo volumes (complete): [4],ccxxii,122; [4],354; [4],290; [4],348; viii,296pp, with two engraved plates, of the Canterbury pilgrimage and a portrait of Chaucer. Period forest-green half-calf, marbled paper-covered boards, spines in five compartments between raised bands with titles and volume numbers in gilt, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed, marbled end papers. An excellent set, the bindings tight, the pages clean, bright and virtually free of foxing. A number of marginal, mostly two-word annotations in a very neat hand, in pencil (easily erased without a trace but of pedagogic value, particularly pointing out cases in which notes are to be referred to), in vols. I-III. Tyrwhitt's fame rests chiefly upon his edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, published in five volumes between 1775 and 1778. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "Chaucer’s reputation had suffered because the principles on which his verse depends were no longer understood; it was Tyrwhitt who pointed out [expounded here at length in the Glossary in Volume 5] that final e’s (by his time mute) ought to be pronounced as separate syllables and that the accent of a word was often placed in the French manner (e.g., virtúe, not vírtue)." His scholarship is still held in high regard, and this edition of The Canterbury Tales is considered among the finest ever published. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        General View of Niagara Falls

      Original watercolour and bodycolour, within a thick black line border, with and integral outer 'frame' of grey wash, the title inscribed in white on this gray wash 'frame'. Gilt frame. 5 x 7 11/16 inches. 6 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches. 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.'

        [Antigua] Vue de Cedarhall dans l'Isle d'Antigon auz Indes occidentales [Pl. 4]

      Basel, Switzerland: Birmann & Fils, au profit des missions évangéliques, [circa 1830]. Hand-coloured aquatint, engraved by Hurlimann after a drawing by L. Stobwasser. Very good condition apart from some very minor foxing and a few light pencil marks in the margins. 8 5/8 x 11 inches. 10 1/8 x 12 7/8 inches. A rare plate from the "Vues des établissements missionnaires fondés par la communauté évangélique des Frères-Unis." This superbly coloured print is one of a set of four plates depicting the various missionary establishments founded on the island of Antigua. Published by Birmann & Fils, Vues des établissements was intended to raise money for the missionary endeavors of the Moravian Church, a Protestant sect that was originally known as the Unitas Fratrum. In 1741, the Moravians founded its missionary arm, the Society for the Furtherance of the Gospel (S.F.G.), which began its activities in Antigua and other Caribbean islands in the 1760s. Founded in 1822, Cedar Hall, like Gracehill and Grac, was one of several Moravian churches established in Antigua during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

        THE CABINET OF NATURAL HISTORY, AND AMERICAN RURAL SPORTS WITH ILLUSTRATIONS. VOL. I. [with:] ...VOLUME II

      Philadelphia: J. & T. Doughty, 1830-1832.. vii,[1],298,[2]; vii,[1],292,[2]pp., plus forty-eight colored lithographic plates, and uncolored engraved portraits of Charles Willson Peale in first volume and of William Bartram in second volume. Two extra uncolored engravings bound in. Engraved titlepage in each volume. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spines richly gilt and with the name "John Paine" stamped in gilt at the foot of both spines. Spine and hinges repaired. Small old institutional ink stamp at upper outer corner of titlepage of both volumes. A few of the early plates in the second volume a bit wrinkled, but on the whole the lithographs are brightly colored and in very good condition, showing none of the spotting or browning usually found. Very good. The first two volumes of this very rare American sporting book, among the first to be illustrated with lithographic plates. THE CABINET OF NATURAL HISTORY..., "an amalgam of natural history, sporting accounts, travel narratives, and practical advice for the countryman" (Reese), was started by brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 when it ceased publication with an abbreviated third volume, not present here, containing but five more colored lithographs. However, despite its relatively short life, THE CABINET OF NATURAL HISTORY... left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America," the text includes first-hand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are amongst the earliest of their kind (some of which were reprinted by the Derrydale Press in 1928), the plates include the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by one of the great names in 19th-century American art. The first volume (made up of twelve parts) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas, but by the time the third part of the second volume had been issued, the partnership had been broken up. Thomas had moved to Boston to pursue his career as a painter, and as of May 17, 1832, John Doughty was the sole proprietor. Evidently Thomas' input was sorely missed, and by mid-summer John was advising his subscribers that unless the level of support improved, he would have to discontinue the publication. In the end the periodical continued for almost another year, with some excellent images from artists such as M.E.D. Brown and James Goodwyn Clooney, before John Doughty's prediction was realized and the publication came to an abrupt halt with Part IV of the third volume. As a painter Thomas Doughty "holds a place unique among artists of this country as having 'initiated the American discovery of the American landscape'" (Looney). His importance as a print maker has yet to be fully recognized or adequately defined for though "there are many prints to which Doughty's name is attached as artist only, there are only a few for which he was initially completely responsible...These are the twenty-three lithographs made specifically for Volume I of...THE CABINET OF NATURAL HISTORY..." (Looney). "Artistically, Vol. 1 is much the most important, for it contains the original plates by Thos. Doughty, famous painter and founding father of the Hudson River School" - Bennett. "A mine of information on contemporary sport and natural history mostly in the East" - Phillips. "The coloured plates are important - being the first coloured sporting prints made in America. There is only one earlier American book with coloured plates that I know of, and that is a treatise on Medical Botany - published in Philadelphia in 1817.

        La Divina Commedia di Dante Alighieri, with Le Rime del Petrarca

      Firenze: Presso Guiseppe Molini, 1830; 1822. Two 12mo. volumes. (vi), (892); (xxxiv), (498)pp. Both volumes feature engraved frontispieces and title pages. The Dante contains a colophon indicating that this edition was published on 24 March 1830, the same day on which a monument to Dante was erected in Florence. Both volumes are bound in nineteenth-century vellum, each featuring a hand-painted miniature portrait of the author on the front panel and a scene relevant to the author's life on the back panel. The Dante has a view of Florence, while Petrarch's villa is depicted on the back panel of Le Rime. Spines of both are divided into panels with decorative gilt rules and titles on red sheep labels, lettered in gilt. The Dante volume bears the armorial bookplate of William Hamilton Howley, Archbishop of Canterbury, and both volumes contain the booklabel of Estelle Doheny, the distinguished collector of fore-edge paintings and rare books. Aside from a touch of shelfwear to spine foot of the Dante, this is a fine, attractive set with distinguished provenance.
