        Account of the Steps taken, in England, with a view to the establishment of an Academical Institution, or College, in New South Wales; and to demonstrating the practicability of effecting an extensive emigration of the industrious classes from the mother country to that colony

      Stephens and Stokes, Sydney 1831 - Octavo, 27 pages, old marbled wrappers. A rare and early pamphlet by the prolific Lang, on the foundation of the Australian College, printed in Sydney by Stephens & Stokes the same year that they began publishing the Herald.In his preface, Lang discusses how the establishment of 'an Academical Institution, for the education of Youth? on the liberal and economical principles of the Schools and Colleges in Scotland' had been a dream of his since he arrived in the colony in 1822. Lang returned to England in 1830, where he argued for the adoption of the scheme, and was pleased with the positive response. As a result of his efforts, the Australian College was opened in 1831, surviving until 1854: 'at its best in the late 1830s it appears to have been run very efficiently' (ADB).One of the most attractive aspects of this pamphlet is the inclusion of a catalogue of "Donations for the Institution", which gives a glimpse of the resources available: these include, the works of Jeremy Bentham in thirty volumes octavo, donated by Bentham himself; scientific apparatus from Dr. Ure, late Professor of Natural Philosophy and Chemistry in Glasgow; and Boswell's Life of Johnson, "from a Young Gentleman in London".The work also contains much of interest regarding Lang's long-cherished plan of arranging for emigration to Australia, in particular the details of his involvement in chartering the famous Stirling Castle voyage.

Febr: 81.', Papier & Darstellung: 22,7 cm x 14,5 cm. . Dieses Aquarell der Ehefrau des Politikers und Mitbegründers der Zentrumspartei Carl Friedich von Savigny (1814 Berlin - Frankfurt a.M. 1875) Marie von Savigny (1831-1905), geb. Arnim-Boitzenburg, lädt auf den ersten Blick ein in eine mediterrane Palmenidylle, unberührt von Zivilisation. Doch auf dem unteren Drittel des Bildes wird durch eine gestutzte Hecke und einem Treppenaufgang im Hintergrund bewusst verdeutlicht, dass die Palmen sich doch in einer Art Garten zu sein scheinen. Die Illusion der unberührten Exotik wird endgültig durch die Frauengestalt in der mittleren Ebene des Bildes mit Hose, Mantel und Regenschirm gebrochen. Es handelt sich um einen vom Menschen gerahmten Naturraum, der dennoch durch die schiere Größe der gen Himmel emporragenden Palmen in Staunen versetzt wird. Hyeres ist eine französische Hafenstadt an der Mittelmeerküste. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        JOURNAL

      [At sea from Hawaii to Boston], 1831. Folio. Original pink patterned wrappers. Top half of front cover torn along hinge; remainder of spine chipped. Front cover lightly dampstained. Bright and clean internally. Near fine. Manuscript journal of James Hunnewell (1794-1869) during his return trip from Hawaii to Boston in 1830-31 aboard the ship Owhyhee. The journal mostly gives an account of the weather and conditions at sea, as well as the latitude and longitude positions of the ship. A roster of the crew and passengers is written on the last page. A later manuscript sheet is laid into the front of the journal, containing a listing of Hunnewell's voyages beginning in 1818 up through the trip aboard the Owhyhee, presumably written by his son, James F. Hunnewell. Hunnewell became familiar with the islands when the ship he was on was sold to Hawaiian chiefs. The senior Hunnewell was responsible for collecting the payment in sandalwood and then selling it in China. As a result, he spent several months in the islands and became friendly with the local populace. In 1820 he arrived in Honolulu as second mate on the brig Thaddeus, the ship bearing the first American missionaries as well as the first printing press there. He later developed a significant business in Hawaii which grew into the commercial house later known as C. Brewer & Company. Though he returned to Charlestown, Massachusetts, he spent the rest of his life actively engaged in exporting goods to Hawaii and California. Part of his considerable fortune was given to found Oahu College.

        O. v. ALVENSLEBEN (1831 Benkendorf-Dresden 1903) Ulme Göllheim, Adolf von Nassau

      - O. v. ALVENSLEBEN (1831 Benkendorf-Dresden 1903) Die alte Ulme zu Göllheim am Denkmal für Adolf von Nassau, 1875 -- Technik: -- Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten bezeichnet und datiert: "Alte Ulme zu Göllheim am Denkmal Ad. von Nassau's. 28. 7. 75. eine kl. engl. Anlage umgiebt das Denkmal in O. ", rückseitig bezeichnet: "Oskar von Alvensleben". -- Maße: -- 28,2 x 22,5 cm -- Zustand: -- Papier leicht stockfeckig. Sonst sehr gut. -- Beschreibung: -- Am 2. Juli 1298 fand bei Göllheim eine Schlacht zwischen den Truppen des habsburgischen Herzogs Albrecht vonÖsterreich und des römisch-deutschen Königs Adolf von Nassau statt, bei der letzterer gefallen ist. Seine Witwe ließspäter an dieser Stelle ein steinernes Kreuz errichten, um das in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts eine neugotischeKapelle erbaut wurde. Hinter dem mächtigen Stamm einer Ulme ist auf der linken Seite der Komposition unseres Aquarells ein Teil derKapelle zu sehen. Ansonsten schenkt der Künstler seine volle Aufmerksamkeit dem imposanten Baum, der vielleichtnoch älter ist, als das Kreuz selbst: "Der Baum scheint mit dem Monumente gleichzeitig gesetzt zu sein, und eineunverbürgte Sage will ihm noch höheres Alter zusagen. " (Johann Geissel, Die Schlacht am Hasenbühl und das Königskreuz zu Göllheim. Eine historische Monographie, Speyer 1835, S. 113. )Der mächtige Stamm füllt den Bildraum beinahe vollständig. Er ist umgeben von einer niedrigen Brüstung, die ihn voraufdringlichen Besuchern schützen soll. Die offen konzipierte Komposition lässt die Krone über den Bildrand hinausaus der Sicht des Betrachters geraten. Links wurde eine Männerfigur an einem Tisch dargestellt, bei der es sich um einSelbstporträt des Künstlers bei der Fertigung der Skizze handeln könnte. Wahrscheinlicher ist aber, dass das Einsetzeneiner menschlichen Gestalt in der Nähe des Baumes der Verdeutlichung seiner gewaltigen Dimension dienen sollte. Alvenslebens Aquarell entstand vermutlich zur Vorbereitung eines Gemäldes. Dafür sprechen die auf dem Blattnotierten Bemerkungen Lebensbaumhecke und durchsichtig belaubt. Im Übrigen gewähren sie eine interessante Einsicht inden künstlerischen Entstehungsprozess. Ob das Gemälde jemals fertig gestellt wurde, ist nicht bekannt. So gewinnt dieZeichnung an Bedeutung als Überlieferung eines historischen Ortes " die Ulme von Göllheim existiert heute nichtmehr. --

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF EARLY ALABAMA STATE LAWS, 1820 - 1831]

      Cahawba & Tuscaloosa, 1831. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, rubbing to a few labels. Ink ownership inscriptions to most titlepages, minor to occasionally heavy foxing, some toning. Overall, a good set. More than a decade's worth of early Alabama state laws, starting soon after statehood was granted on Dec. 14, 1819. Included here is a consecutive run of laws from the second session to the twelfth, as well as the acts passed at a special session in 1821. The composition of the laws follows other early American state laws, with acts establishing courts, banks, militia, elections, counties, and much more. Also as with other states at the time, Alabama immediately claims jurisdiction over Indian lands in the first volume of session laws included here, specifically "all that tract of country lying west of Willstown valley and belonging to the Cherokee nation of Indians." In addition, the second session includes an act tasking each county Sheriff with the duty to "sell all land and slaves taken into execution by him...." Several other acts deal with slavery, including an act amending an earlier act on the trials of slaves, an act granting Circuit Courts with jurisdiction in the trials of slaves for capital offenses, an act granting the governor authority to give instructions for the sale of slaves "condemned in the district court of the Unites States for this district," an act criminalizing trade with the slave population, an act "to prohibit the importation of slaves into this state for sale or hire," then an act repealing said law two years later, and acts specifying punishments for slaves convicted of manslaughter and rape. Each volume is rare, with OCLC recording between one and five copies of each imprint (eight of the imprints reporting three or fewer copies), with no Alabama institution recording any of them. A fascinating look at the legal framework in the early years of Alabama statehood.

        A GENERAL CIRCULAR TO ALL PERSONS OF GOOD CHARACTER, WHO WISH TO EMIGRATE TO THE OREGON TERRITORY, EMBRACING SOME ACCOUNT OF THE CHARACTER AND ADVANTAGES OF THE COUNTRY; THE RIGHT AND THE MEANS AND OPERATIONS BY WHICH IT WILL BE SETTLED

      Charlestown, 1831. 20th-century gilt mottled calf, spine gilt extra, leather labels. Original wrappers bound in at rear. Boards scuffed, labels a bit chipped. Ownership inscription on front fly leaf, modern ownership ink stamp on titlepage and front wrapper. Minor soiling. Very good. Untrimmed. This is the first major proposal by visionary promoter Kelley, all of whose schemes came to nothing, but whose ideas encouraged many others. This pamphlet outlines his well reasoned plan for settlements in Oregon near the mouth of the Columbia River, with a woodcut plan of one of the proposed settlements printed on the last page. Kelley tried to obtain the assistance of the ministry in promoting his plan, with assurance of converting the Indians. This copy retains the original wrappers, noting a price of 12 1/2 cents on the front wrapper, and with a list of agents on the verso. At the end of the text Kelley calls on newspaper publishers to print his circular in their papers as a public service.

        JOURNAL HISTORIQUE DE L'ÉTABLISSEMENT DES FRANÇAIS A LA LOUISIANE

      New Orleans & Paris, 1831. Half title. Contemporary calf, gilt, rebacked. Corners repaired. Lightly foxed. Early ownership inscription on titlepage. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. "This JOURNAL HISTORIQUE, a reprinting without preface or notes of a manuscript giving no indication of its source, is written in the third person and is usually considered as by La Harpe. It tells, at pages 144-178, of La Harpe's expedition from New Orleans in October, 1718, to establish a post on the Red River, from which he returned in January, 1720, and at pages 233-236 and pages 257-276 of two expeditions to St. Bernard's Bay, the first in the summer and fall of 1720, and the second under command of La Harpe, which sailed August 15, 1721, and returned October 3. There is also an extensive account of the two St. Denis expeditions across Texas in 1714 and 1719, the first reference to this being on page 116" - Streeter. Although Streeter calls this a "reprinting," it is in fact the first printing of the text. Despite a dual imprint on the titlepage showing both New Orleans and Paris, this book was actually printed solely in Paris. Another imprint, that of Paul Renouard, appears on the verso of the half title. "Chief authority for the period covered, 1698-1723" - Howes. A surprisingly rare work, of major importance for the early history of Louisiana.

Despite the high-society scandal of their relationship, the actress and the Duke lived together for twenty contented years in which she bore him ten illegitimate children.

Their life together ended cruelly in 1811 with the advent of the Regency and William's search for an official bride. [National Portrait Gallery]. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Album of Gouache Paintings on Pith - Canton 1831.

      1831.. Very unusual album of 18 delicate paintings on 16 individual leaves of pith papers presented in an elegant purpose made green cloth covered clam shell box, leather title label upper cover. Album measures 20 x 27.5cm. The album has a presentation inscription from G. H. Vachell to the Revd Leonard Jenyns, dated 'British Factory Canton, Dec 14th 1831'; and a manuscript label on the front cover: "Insects - from Specimens in the Cabinet of Revd G. H. Vachell at Macao (China) caught in the town and its vicinity. Lizards - From Living Specimens caught on the Islands near Macao (?). Paintings by Chinese artists. 1831" Boards very worn with loss at edges and corners. Rev. Vachell who compiled this album has tipped the pith paper into the album itself rather than employing the usual method of securing the paintings by the use of a ribbon border. The paintings have been professionally repaired where possible, most are chipped at edges, with either no loss to, or very minor loss of the painting however some show significant loss. The paintings in this album are as follows: 1. Interior view of a tea hong captioned 'Interior of a Merchant's Tea "Hong" (or Warehouse) in Canton 1831'. It also has has 8 inked numbers and a corresponding detailed legend in Vachell's hand on the opposite page, initialled G.H.V. It shows the typical activities inside the tea warehouses of Canton, incl. 1. a Western tea inspector; 2. the Chinese Hong merchants; 3. A Western 'writer' (clerk) writing down weights of the chests; 4. A Chinese merchant doing the same; 5. the coolies treading the tea; 6. the 'Chop boat' ready to convey the tea from the hong to the ship in the river; 7. the tea chests prepared for examination; 8. Servant putting the name of the hong merchants in Chinese characters on the tea boxes. 2. A boat captioned by Vachell "Pleasure boat used by the Emperor of China at Pekin." (with some loss to the top of the image). 3. A boat captioned by Vachell "Travelling Boat used by the Military Mandarins of Low ?. (with a tear and some minor loss to bottom right). 4. A butterfly, captioned by Vachell "Phalana Atlas" and "Macao". 5. A butterfly captioned by Vachell 'Caught in the flower gardens in Canton' 6. Two lizards 7. A lizard. 8. Two lizards. 9. A floral still life. 10. A butterfly. 11. A lizard. 12. A lizard. 13. A river view showing a fort (the Dutch 'folly fort?) and three boats. 14. A river view showing a bridge and surrounding buildings. 15. A boat captioned "Duck boat" (this with very significant loss of half of the image), 16. A boat captioned "The boat built by the Viceroy of Canton". Rev. George Harvey Vachell was born at Southport, Cambridgeshire, in 1799. He died at sea in 1839, en route to England from China with his family and was buried at Capetown. A graduate of Cambridge University, he entered holy orders and spent much of his short adult life in China where he was chaplain to the Honourable East India Company's establishment in Macau from 1828. After the Company lost its monopoly of the China Trade in 1834, he became chaplain to Lord Napier, sent from Britain to be the first Superintendent of the British China Trade; but before the year was out, he had the melancholy duty of conducting Napier's burial service at the still existing British Protestant Cemetery in Macau. Vachell is better known to history as a botanist and collector of plants, insects, beetles, and fishes, who sent many specimens to the leading English scientists of his day. They included Rev. Professor J.S. Henslow of Cambridge University, and the naturalist Rev. Leonard Jenyns for whom this annotated album of pith pictures was intended. He botanized extensively in the islands and neighbourhood of Macau at a time when rising tension between China and the West could sometimes make such excursions dangerous, and he must have had the kind of quiet and outgoing personality which made them possible. The entries in Emil Bretschneider's History of European Botanical Discoveries in China (1898) and William Jackson Hooker's The Botany of Captain Beechey's Voyage (1841) are testimony to his pioneering zeal and considerable knowledge of what was then a still little known field in that part of the world, whilst other entries show that his ever growing reputation was known and appreciated globally. It appears that before Charles Darwin was appointed botanist to the HMS Beagle Expedition in 1831-36, Vachell may have been offered the post but he declined. The foreign residents of Macau at this time, Vachell among them, were small in number but active in good works and the pursuit of knowledge. In 1829 he had been elected as honorary secretary to an intended museum on the East India Company's premises, but it seems this project never materialized. Clearly, Vachell's early death was a decided loss to science. .

        August Reinhardt (1831-1915). Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft. Aquarell auf Papier

      - August Reinhardt (1831 Leipzig-Dresden 1915). Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft. 1867 . Aquarell auf Papier. -- Beschreibung: -- Aquarell auf Papier. unten links signiert: "AReinhardt" und unten rechts datiert: "im April 1867". -- Größe/Size: -- 21,5 x 35,3 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, farbfrisch erhalten. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Auch wenn August Reinhardt seine Ausbildung zum Maler in Leipzig bei den beiden nazarenisch geprägten Malern Gustav Jäger (1808-1871) und Bernhard Neher (1806-1886) und später in Weimar bei Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1875) absolvierte, orientiert sich das vorliegende Blatt eher an den Werken der späten Ludwig Richter-Schule. Malweise und Bildgestaltung lassen an Victor Paul Mohn oder Albert Venus denken. Dieser Kreis wird Reinhardt nicht fremd gewesen sein, hatte er doch während seines Rom-Aufenthaltes 1852 bis 1854 Kontakt zu Heinrich Franz-Dreber, dem Lieblingsschüler Richters. Von ihm wird Reinhardt auch die Lockerung des Strichs erlernt haben, denn Dreber hatte zu jener Zeit die scharfe Feder Richters bereits gegen den weichen, malerischen Kohlestift getauscht, was dann auch Arnold Böcklin stark beeinflussen sollte. In der farblichen Durcharbeitung unseres Aquarells setzt Reinhart gezielt auf das Verlaufen und Übereinanderschichten der Farben, um nuancierte Abstufungen zu erreichen. Dies ergibt ein variationsreiches Farbenspiel, das nahezu vollständig auf die konturgebende Linie verzichtet. Die dürren, windgepeitschten Äste sorgen hierbei für einen spannenden Kontrast. So gelingt Reinhardt eine intensive Wiedergabe des aufziehenden Gewitters. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Grabbe").

      Detmold, 22. VII. 1831. - 1 S. Folio. Auf grobem Konzeptpapier (Wasserzeichen: zweistrichige Antiquaversalien FWH). An seine spätere Braut Louise Christiane Clostermeier: "Hochgeehrteste Mademoiselle! Gesundheit! Ihnen und der - Frau Archivräthin, sobald Sie dieselbe nöthig, - ich hoffe nie - hätte. Verzeihen Sie dieses Conceptpapier. Ich treffe den Ulrich, von dem ich gern für meinen Gebrauch Papier kaufte, nicht zu Haus. Von Freiligrath Anliegendes zurück.

Die Ehe sollte nicht glücklich werden; kurz vor seinem Tod reichte Louise die Scheidung ein.

        ADDRESS TO THE READER OF THE DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE GALVESTON BAY & TEXAS LAND COMPANY, WHICH ARE CONTAINED IN THE APPENDIX

      New York, 1831. Dbd. Small chunk taken out of gutter of title-leaf (affecting "G" in "Galveston Bay"). Tanned and rather soiled. Else good. "When in the fall of 1830 the Galveston Bay Company was organized to colonize its Texas land grants on a large scale, the colonization of Texas thus far had been very largely carried on by Stephen F. Austin...the Galveston Bay Company is the first of such companies which actually sent colonists to Texas...The ADDRESS TO THE READER, giving an account of Texas and its opportunities for emigrants, is well done and is one of the earliest accounts of Texas in English. It refers, though a little disingenuously, to the prohibition against immigration in the law of April 6, 1830, and later refers to it as 'occasional and temporary,' but it does give the complete text in the appendix...Many years ago Mr. Winkler suggested to me that the law of April 6, 1830, appeared in English translation here for the first time..." - Streeter.

        AUTHENTIC AND IMPARTIAL NARRATIVE OF THE TRAGICAL SCENE WHICH WAS WITNESSED IN SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY (VIRGINIA) ON MONDAY THE 22nd OF AUGUST LAST, WHEN FIFTY-FIVE OF ITS INHABITANTS (MOSTLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN) WERE INHUMANLY MASSACRED BY THE BLACKS! COMMUNICATED BY THOSE WHO WERE EYEWITNESSES OF THE BLOODY SCENE

      [New York], 1831. Original plain blue wrappers, bound into modern blue half calf and cloth, gilt spine titles, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Significant foxing to text. Very good. Untrimmed. This very rare pamphlet is the classic account of the famous Nat Turner slave rebellion which took place along the Virginia-North Carolina border in the summer of 1831. Turner led a massacre of whites after an eclipse of the sun convinced him that the time for slaves to shed their bondage had come. The pamphlet reports the gory details of the uprising, which began on Aug. 22 but which was quickly suppressed. The sensational text, however, hints darkly of further rebellions and reviews the sad history of slave uprisings in Santo Domingo, the nightmare of every southern planter. The folding woodcut frontispiece, almost always lacking, depicts in graphic detail the atrocities supposed to have been committed. Entitled "Horrid Massacre in Virginia," it shows, in overlapping scenes, a mother trying to shelter her children from an ax-wielding black, a plantation owner being stabbed to death, and another planter defending himself with a sword. Across the bottom mounted militia pursue the blacks into a thicket. A great rarity of African-Americana, almost never seen complete.

        The science of book-keeping, exemplified in Jones's English Systems of single and double entry and balancing books. Second edition

      London: Printed by T. C. Hansard; published by the author,, 1831. Quarto (317 x 243 mm), pp. vii, (1), 111, (1); [140 pp. of lithographed examples, (2), 123-259, (1)]. Later brown coarse grain cloth, spine lettered gilt, paper label lettered gilt on front cover. A little light dust-soiling; occasional light spotting; a very good copy. Second edition of the new version of the English System. "The unfavourable reception of his work silenced Jones for nearly quarter of a century, until he set to work to devise a revised version of the system. Published as the Science of Bookkeeping in 1831, a second edition followed in the same year, a third in 1832, and a fourth in 1834 after his death. Developed and modified by his sons, editions of the work continued to appear until the 1880s. The revised system that Jones presented withdrew many of the features of the original system and considerably modulated his attack on the principles of double-entry. Jones admitted that the 'additional experience' of thirty-five years had convinced him that there were 'strong objections in practice' against the form of the journal he had put forward. He also divested the ledger of the multiple columns. Two additional books were part of the new system ...." Bywater and Yamey, p. 198.

      Washington, D.C., 1831-1833. 11" x 15". "Party Printed Document Signed ""Andrew Jackson"" as President and ""Edw Livingston"" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 11"" x 15"". Washington, no date, but 1831-1833. On vellum. Ships Papers signed in blank, not filled in. Blind embossed Seal of the United States, 2.25 inch diameter with serrated edge, affixed with red wax at lower left. Uniformly lightly soiled, usual folds. Naval vignettes at top scalloped edge. Large 5"" long signature of Jackson. Fine condition.This document was signed in blank in Washington, D.C. by President Jackson and Secretary of State Livingston, to be sent to a United States port to be filled out, signed, and issued from there by the Collector of the Port. The Collector, or an assistant, would fill in the name of the ship and all the required information. Edward Livingston served as Jackson's Secretary of State from May 24, 1831 to May 29, 1833. On the day of Livingston?s resignation as Secretary of State, President Jackson appointed him U.S. Minister to France. It is probable that when Ships Papers signed in blank by Jackson and Livingston's successor Louis McLane reached a Collector, he put aside the Jackson/Livingston Ships Papers and replaced them with the newly signed documents, although the previously signed ones could also have been legally used.In part, ""By the President of the United States of America Suffer the ___ master or commander of the burthen of ___ tons of thereabouts mounted with ___ guns navigated with ___ men To Pass with her Company Passengers Goods and Merchandize without any hindrance seisure or molestation the said ___ appearing by good testimony to belong to one or more of the Citizens of the United States and to him or them only ..."""

        Ferruginous Thrush

      1831. AUDUBON, John James.Ferruginous Thrush. Turdus Rufus. Linn. Male, 1. Female, 2. Black-jack Oak, Quercus Nigra. Black Snake.No place: R. Havell, [1831].The dramatic hand-colored Ferruginous Thrush plate from the double elephant folio first edition of Audubon?'s Birds of America, ?"the most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed,?" depicting a black snake invading the thrushes' nest, while they desperately attempt to repel the snake's attack. One of no more than 175 copies printed."The Birds of America exemplifies man's ability to accomplish an almost impossible task through sacrifice and persistence. Audubon set out to paint and publish an example of every bird on the North American continent… He was the first artist-naturalist to illustrate American birds, life-size, in natural poses; the backgrounds, or habitats, are more natural looking than those of his predecessors" (Handbook of Audubon Prints, 17-18). "The most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed… He insisted on drawing from life, never from stuffed specimens, and was much in advance of his time in portraying the birds (in many cases unrecorded species) in their natural surroundings… The courage and faith of the Audubon family is breathtaking… This immense undertaking, this unparalleled achievement, was not the production of a great and long-established publishing house, nor was it backed by a wealthy institution. It was the work of a man of relentless energy, with no private fortune… It is a story without equal in the whole history of publishing" (Great Books and Book Collectors, 210-13). The Ferruginous Thrush is plate 116 of the 435 engravings Audubon produced.Light wear to left margin where this sheet was originally bound in with others. Print clean and fine. A dramatic, bold and desirable original Audubon print.

      London: Printed for B Fellowes, Ludgate Street. 1831. - Second Edition, being the First Corrected Edition; the earlier printing featured nine errors which, given the content, were crucial. Tall octavo pp. xx, 202, [1 imprint]. A very attractive copy in a most elaborate full binding (for a table of logarithms) of straight-grain green morocco with heavy silk endpapers, all edges gilt with inner gilt dentelles; possibly a presentation binding (although unsigned) -both boards are intricately tooled with a geometric design of gilt rings. Later bookplate of historian Wilhem Voss of Hamburg-Altona to pastedown, some faint dampstaining to margin of first and final leaves, some sunning to covers. Very good indeed.
