        American conchology or descriptions of the shells of North America illustrated by coloured figures from original drawings executed from nature.

      New Harmony, IN, Privately published (printed at The School Press, and the M Press), 1830-1837. 8vo (21.5 x 13.3 cm). Seven parts in two, containing part VII. Later half calf with the gilt lettered label on the spine and the contemporary boards preserved (parts I-VI) and original printed wrappers (part VII; 24.4 x 15.2 cm).l Very rare complete set of the work as published by Say, with the additional part issued by Conrad after Say's untimely death. It contains 68 fine lithographic plates that are beautifully hand-coloured - each with accompanying explanatory text. Most of the drawing and colouring is by Lucy Say and ranks among the best ever done, being far superior to that of many contemporary natural history illustrations in detail and subtlety. Part VII (published after Say's death and edited by the American conchologist Timothy Conrad), with the original front wrapper, all the text, and the hand-coloured plates. "There was a more honourable motive behind the production of Thomas Say's American conchology. Forsaking the world of learning, to which he had contributed significantly, Say adopted a simple lifestyle on the banks of the Wabash in Indiana. He threw in his lot with a small band of idealistic settlers who had gathered there to work together and live in peace, their little township being optimistically named New Harmony. He became business manager to the community and set up a hand printing press. Between 1830 and 1834, when he died, he produced the seven parts comprising his American conchology, his wife Lucy helping to produce the illustrations and supervising their colouring. ... Say's book laid the foundation of our knowledge of American molluscs. Considering its author worked in a wilderness with primitive equipment it is a minor miracle that the book was issued at all." (Peter Dance). Perforated stamp on title page leaf, library labels on front pastedown and front flyleaf, text and plates unmarked. Some age-toning and offsetting to a few plates. In all a very good, complete copy. Dance, Shell Collecting, p. 142; Nissen ZBI 3614.

        Svensk Botanik utgifven af Kongl. Vetenskaps academien i Stockholm. Elfte bandet 1- 3. Häftena 121, 122 och 123 (..).

      Texten tryckt i Upsala hos Palmblad & C. 1830. Blue / grey printed wrapper + 18 uncoloured plates + 18 text leaves. 6:o. Text 29 x 17 cm (uncut). Plates 25 x 15,5 cm. Wrapper 24 x 15 cm. A couple of minor spots on the back of the wrapper, slight browning to the edges of some of the text leaves, a couple of insignificant spots. A short tear in the margin of the last text leaf. Some offsetting on the text leaves from the facing text leaf (which is quite normal). These are just minor objections, this copy is in fantastic condition. It has that feeling of crispy freshness. Here we have the first third of volume 11 of Svensk Botanik, including the hardly ever seen wrapper. Volume 11 is the never finished last volume of the work containing 56 plates instead of 72 as in each of the first 10 volumes. It is considered to be very rare and is never found as a complete separate volume. Many sets of the work contain 10 volumes only. The few that have all 11 volumes cost considerably more. It can be argued that volume 11 constitutes about half the value of the work, even though the first 10 volumes have 720 plates. The only feasible way to complete a 10 volume set with volume 11 is to collect bits and pieces that do surface on the market from time to time. This is such an example. A rare find, especially in the fantastic condition we have here. The plates and text leaves are numbered 721 to 738.

        Vases etrusques de Lucien Bonaparte Prince de Canino. 1-2 Livraison. [Atlas].

      [Viterbo, C. Tosoni], 1830. Elephant folio (76.0 x 53.5 cm). Ten unnumbered chromolithographed and hand-coloured plates. Original portfolio (79.0 x 55.5 cm); boards with printed title mounted.l The magnificent, complete atlas of this exceedingly rare work. While in self-imposed exile in the Papal State, the younger brother of Napoléon Bonaparte spent considerable time excavating Etruscan tombs located on and near his estate near the ancient city of Vulci. This brought a wealth of Etruscan and Greek objects to light: over 3,000 vases on Bonaparte's estate alone. The most impressive ones are figured in this atlas, with illustrations by the Italian architect and designer, Giuseppe Valadier (1762-1839). These objects were also described in a text volume titled "Muséum Etrusque de Lucien Bonaparte Prince de Canino. Fouilles de 1828 à 1829. Vases peints avec inscriptions", which is not present. "Bonaparte himself had made registrations of the ?nds, the vases being numbered sequentially as they appeared from the ground, with detailed descriptions handed in to the authorities at the papal chair... his approach was in fact very innovative at the time" (Nørskov, "The Affairs of Lucien Bonaparte and the Impact on the Study of Greek Vases"). The text volume is rare, but this atlas is excessively rare. Brunet records only the first livraison: "Il ná paru de cet ouvrage qu[e] ... 5 planches lithogr. coloriées". The plates should be numbered by hand; apparently, at the time of printing it was not yet decided how many plates were to be issued. These ten plates, however, are all that were published. The black and reddish colours seem to have been printed, whereas the whites are added by hand. No auction records found by us in the last 50 years and we could only trace one copy avaialble in the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Light spotting throughout. Portfolio and plate edges showing the usual wear for a work this old, spine and corners with later cloth. In all a very good, complete atlas. Brunet 1, p. 1087.

Next to nothing was known about Japan and the Japanese and this book provided some very interesting, not previously reported insights. Inscribed on half-title: "W. Schmidt / 1e Smith / Zwolle, November 1845." Landwehr, "Dutch books with coloured plates", p. 377, lists the author as "Meylan". Only two auction records in the last 30 years.

        Heath Blossoms: Or, Poems written in Obscurity and Seclusion ? With a Memoir of the Author ?

      and Sold by Baldwin and Cradock ? Deck, Shalders, Hunt and Piper, Ipswich; Deck, Bury; Hardacre, Hadleigh; Loder, Woodbridge; and Smith, Edinburgh. [c. 1830]., Printed by W. Hill, Ballingdon - First edition, very scarce, of this provincially-printed collection of poems, prefixed with a detailed account of the author's financial distress.In her sobering Introduction, Hart writes: 'The dread of being overtaken by absolute penury, has induced the author of the following poems, to offer them to the public ? and most of them partaking of the colour of her own dark and melancholy fate, it is necessary they should be prefaced with a short memoir of herself'. What follows is a curious narrative, punctuated with lengthy quotations from Hart's correspondence with various financial institutions and private bodies. This demonstrates that Hart's was a difficult life beset with financial woes, even before she became involved with a husband who misrepresented his estate, his means, and his debts. The memoir ends with copied correspondence between Hart and her husband's creditors, whom she feels have treated her unjustly by taking her savings to make good on his arrears. She closes with a hope that 'this humble volume fall into the hand of some friend to the oppressed, who will investigate the case, and endeavour to redress the injury!' We may never know the outcome of this curious case, but perhaps inevitably the poems carry the tone of oppression and dismay, including 'Written in Illness, and a Prospect of Death', 'Written during my Son's Illness' and 'The Tear'. The Suffolk context-which is established with the attractive frontispiece of Lavenham Church-endures in a poem named for that building, 'On Visiting Brenteleigh Hall' and 'Lines on James Reed, Esq., of Ipswich'. 8vo (220 x 138 mm), pp. xxvii, [2], 30-144, lithographed frontispiece of Lavenham Church; frontispiece loose but holding, tissue-guard preserved but a little offsetting from title; untrimmed in publisher's paper-backed boards, cloth spine with printed paper label; paper missing from upper board, spine sunned, corners bumped; contemporary ownership inscription.

This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events -- such as Noah's flood -- shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long-acting, gradual, shaping forces.

        [SIGNIFICANT SPANISH-LANGUAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON CHAMBERS TO JOSÉ DE LAS PIEDRAS, COMMANDER OF THE MEXICAN FORCES IN NACOGDOCHES, ABOUT THE REPLACEMENT OF JUAN ANTONIO PADILLA AS A LAND COMMISSIONER]

      San Antonio de Bexar, 1830. [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Accompanied by a typed English translation. A few short fold splits, small loss at removed seal, not affecting any text. Very good. An interesting letter from Thomas Jefferson Chambers, controversial lawyer, surveyor, and land speculator in Mexican Texas, to José de las Piedras, commander of the Mexican Twelfth Permanent Battalion in Nacogdoches from 1827 until 1832. Chambers, who moved to Mexico in 1826 before being named surveyor general of Texas in 1829, writes to Piedras about the prospects of replacing land commissioner Juan Antonio Padillo, who had been arrested on a bogus murder charge. This cast a shadow over the surveying of land grants and issuing of titles in which Chambers and Padillo had been engaged, but was to open up future opportunities for Chambers. The letter translates, in part: "I am sending to the inhabitants of that border the translation of an order by His Excellency, the governor of the state, in which he anticipates their turning to the government to petition that he be designated to replace Mr. Juan Antonio Padilla as the commissioner who is to issue them their land titles...it is probable that they will hold meetings in order to draw up their petitions, I am advising you of this.... I have understood that you will probably be commissioned as the inspector of colonization for the general government. I am glad of this, and I hope that it will pose no obstacle to the state commissioners in their work. If it is true that you have received this appointment, please let me know in Saltillo, since I would like to consult you about some points of the colonization law.... [Y]our attentive servant, who kisses your hands. Thomás Jefferson Chambers." A significant letter concerning the pre-Revolution colonization of Texas by Thomas Jefferson Chambers, a prominent though controversial early Texas figure in law, politics, and land, who was assassinated in 1856, likely by someone involved in a lawsuit with him over land claims.

Lonsdale from the author" on front endpaper to Volume II (see attached images). The signature on volume 1 is either in a secretaries hand or Lonsdale's, but the signature on Volume two is in Lyell's hand. Mixed set, volume lll from another set and is slightly trimmed. 8vos, approximately 215 x 135 mm, 8½ x 5½ inches, VOLUME I: engraved frontispiece, 2 maps, 1 folding, 1 half page, 1 half page engraved view and 33 text illustrations; VOLUME II: hand coloured aquatint frontispiece, folding hand coloured map, 8 text illustrations; VOLUME III: Hand coloured frontispiece, 4 engraved plates, coloured map, 88 text illustrations, pages: Volume I, xvi, [1]-511 including index plus 17 page Murray catalogue dated June 1830; Volume II, xii, [1]-330, including index plus 16 page catalogue dated December 1831, Volume III, xxxi plus Errata, [1]-398, [1]-110 -Appendix, Glossary and Index, last page publisher's adverts, half-title in Volume I, not called for in Volume II, Volume III lacks half-title.

This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events -- such as Noah's flood -- shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long-acting, gradual, shaping forces.

        [Binding title:] Album costumes de théatre originaux.[France, ca. 1860]. Small folio (32.5 x 27.5 cm). Album with 178 watercolours and gouaches, and 3 prints (2 lithographs and 1 engraving) mounted on 195 leaves numbered in pencil. Including 73 signed by Jules Cornilliet, 66 signed by Abel Brun, 1 signed "Happel" and 1 "Stop" (pseudonym of Louis Morel-Retz), most of the others clearly matching those of Cornilliet and Brun. Near contemporary black half sheepskin.

      For Cornilliet: Bénézit III, p. 177; Thieme & Becker VII, p. 443; both Cornilliet and Brun not in Colas; Hiler; Lipperheide. Substantial collection of original 19th-century designs for French theatre costumes. The designs can be roughly divided into the realistic and contemporary designs of Jules Cornilliet and the fantastic and humorous designs by Abel Brun; these include historical, oriental, satirical and allegorical costumes and costumes for specific types of theatre (ballet, drama, operetta). While Cornilliet often uses simple, but colourful and effective designs, Brun's designs are extravagant (like the pompously dressed-up noblemen "Le Prince Kolibrikiki"), absurd (like the doctor "Un Porte-Seringue", who is carrying an enormous syringe on his side) and monstrous (like the tailed blue and hairy beast "Le Scorpion"). The designs were most likely used for the fabrication of the costumes as they often include notes concerning the fabric and colours. We weren't able to match the costumes to any plays, but further research could be worthwhile.Most of the watercolours and gouaches are by either Jules Cornilliet (1830-1886) or Abel Brun. The latter is solely known from his art, including designs for colourful advertisements from the late 19th and early 20th century. The French painter Cornilliet was a pupil of Ary Scheffer (1795-1858) and Horace Vernet (1789-1863), who made his Salon debut in 1857. Both made more costume designs, surviving in a few similar, less substantial, albums located in the Bibliothèque nationale. A couple of the drawings with an unidentified owner's (?) stamp. Possibly lacking some plates as 14 numbered pages are left blank, but no traces of removal are found. Some occasional spots and smudges, otherwise in very good condition.

Eugène Devéria (1805-1865) fut un des peintres majeurs du mouvement romantique aux côtés d'Eugène Delacroix. Dès ses débuts, ses premiers envois au Salon sont remarqués jusqu'à celui de 1827 où la Naissance de Henri IV connaît un véritable succès. Il poursuit la représentation de scènes historiques, notamment à travers Puget présentant son Milon de Crotone à Louis XIV destiné à un plafond du Louvre mais rapidement, invité à quitter la capitale, son oeuvre se fait plus discrète. Il n'en demeure pas moins un artiste de référence pour le Romantisme, côtoyant peintres et écrivains et proposant des figures élégantes, au trait précis et fluide.  autre

        Album with Original Art and Hand Colored Lithography, musings and verse

      England: , c 1830-1850s. England, c 1830-1850s. Covers show some wear, and the back strip and edges are slightly damaged due to rubbing. The binding is partiallyA few interior pages are loose and/or detached.

An artist's scrap book filled with over fifty (50) pieces of original art work and hand colored lithography and other pieces. What makes this scrap book a unique find, is the consistent fine quality of the work within. Some of the hand-colored lithography is so expertly done that it becomes hard to tell whether or not it is a lithographic print. Pieces of note are: the portrait of a young girl with ringlets, and another portrait of a man in a turban. Some beautiful landscapes of farmland (rendered in pencil), an old stone bridge (watercolor), a boldly colored butterfly (color pencil) and bird (ink & color pencil), and 'A Pas de Deux' of crabs (ink).Additionally includes a pith watch paper with a thistle. A finely detailed tropical bird on a rose stem with nearby butterfly adorned with dried flora.Along with artwork there are several original pieces of music and poetry. There are two pieces of music, a ballad and a round, along with their music score. The poems are both original pieces, and quotes from other notable poets of the day. Once such quote, written in beautiful calligraphy, is from the poem entitled "Woman" by Eaton Stannard Barrett. "Would Woman govern tyrants? she concedesIn slight concerns, and hence in weight, leads.Opposes first, to make surrender prized,And while she gives advice, appears advised"Gilt and blind stamp leather. The pages are gilt-edged. The majority of the book has tipped in art work that has been secured to the page by glue and/or thread. Furthermore the majority of the lithographic prints within have been hand colored, but not all. Most of the artwork is unsigned, however when it is, the initials are general the same three names, E.B., E.T., and A.C. Wigan. There is reference to the Armstrong famil as well. A letter is included with the note "To my sister Daisy Armstrong, from my mother Mrs. Armstrong". The bulk of the material in the album dates from the 1930s. Measures 9 1/4" x 7 1/4".To view this album, please click on the following link:https://goo.gl/photos/JkMjtRZRJJU1aF6A9
