Folio, four parts, 20 lithographed plates, stitched as issued in orig. printed wrappers, some occasional small stains in blank margins, wrappers frayed at extremities. [A rare survival in the original parts of a very scarce work. [COPAC lists only two copies, one at Aberdeen and the other at the National Library of Scotland which is noted as lacking the title-page. As our copy has the title on the front of each wrapper it would appear that there was no separate printed title issued. Part four of our copy has a stitched in slip 'Subscribers are respectfully informed that the present number concludes the work in illustration of the Castellated Mansions of Scotland. January 1833.' There is no publication date on the parts. Not recorded in Abbey.]

      I-II. London, S. Bentley, 1830. 8:o. Litograferad front,XII,383 s. & 1 utvikbar grav. karta & 4 litograferade plr + litograferad front,VIII,377,(1 blank,2) s. & 1 grav. karta & 1 grav. plansch & 4 litograferade plr. Med illustrationer i texten. Två ngt nötta prydliga samtida hfrbd med guldornerade och blinddekorerade ryggar. Rödstänkta snitt. Ryggarna med viss ytlig sprickbildning. Någon enstaka småfläck, några av planscherna med svaga lagerfläckar. Reva i s. 67 och 235 i del I. Ovanligt bra ex. med the earl of Malmesburys förgyllda ryggexlibris och Gunnar Brusewitz namnteckning och exlibris.. Schreber 246. Bring 497. Schiötz 613a för del II. En andra upplaga utkom 1831 och en tredje 1842. Sista bladet i andra delen är en förlagsannons. Llewellyn Lloyd (1792-1876) var född i London där fadern var bankir och när han kom till Sverige 1823 medförde han förutom sin äventyrslusta och jaktpassion även en tjock plånbok. Han hade inspirerats av kapten Brookes reseskildringar från Skandinavien och det sägs att Lloyd "som järnfilspånet till magneten" genast drogs till den tidens mest berömde björnjägare, överjägmästaren i Värmland, Herman Falk. Lloyds upplevelser i slutet av 1820-talet resulterade i "Field sports of the north of Europe" som på svenska fick namnet "Jagt-nöjen i Sverige och Norrige". Trots sin bakgrund var Lloyd säkert bättre lämpad för ett skogsmannaliv än för societetslivet i Stockholm, där han som synes var föga uppskattad. Fritz von Dardel, som illustrerade flera av Lloyds böcker, beskriver honom så här 1873: "Frånsett sin specialitet som björnjägare är denne engelsman för övrigt en bra ledsam typ. Det språk han talar, en blandning av svenska och engelska, de onödiga frågor han gör utan att någonsin vänta på svar, förarga och trötta även den välvilligaste åhörare. Karlen är dessutom ogrannlaga och saknar takt." Gunnar Brusewitz har ägnat Lloyd ett kapitel i "Björnjägare och fjärilsmålare". Där skriver han om "Field sports of the north of Europe": "ur många synpunkter är detta förstlingsverk Lloyds bästa och mest läsbara arbete. I varje fall är det hans mest personliga. Det visar oss en författare med skarp blick för både människor och miljöer och den ger oss en inträngande bild av hur livet tedde sig i de gammalsvenska skogarna. Lloyd intresserade sig långt ifrån enbart för jägarlivet utan passar också på att kommentera så vitt skilda ting som brottmålslagarna och deras tillämpning - ett ämne som han senare skulle bli väl insatt i av skilda skäl - svalans flyttning, livet på gästgivargårdarna, vägarnas beskaffenhet, julseder, bondbröllop, skrock, skidåkning och andra märkliga företeelser." Exemplaret har sannolikt tillhört James Edward Harris, den tredje earlen av Malmesbury (1778-1841), vilken gjorde sig känd som en hängiven jägare och samlare av naturalier

        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.

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

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

        Fleet Street Prison

      c. 1830. 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. 4 15/16 x 6 1/8 inches. 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".

        "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

        The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports: Volume I

      Philadelphia: J. & T. Doughty, 1830. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. Yes. First edition. Volume I. 4to. vii,[1],298,[2];pp., plus 24 hand-colored lithographic plates, and uncolored engraved portrait of Charles Willson Peale. Engraved title page. Contemporary calf boards, rebacked to style in matching leather, and with the original spine laid-in. Text is brown and spotted, the plates less so with very good coloring. 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.
