        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of the Birds of the United States. By . Wilson; with a continuation by . Bonaparte . the illustrative notes, and life of Wilson, by Sir William Jardine

      Whittaker, Treacher & Arnot and Stirling & Kenney, London & Edinburgh 1832 - (8 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches). Uncoloured engraved portrait frontispiece of Wilson by W.H. Lizars after John Watson Gordan, 96 hand-coloured engraved plates by Lizars after Wilson, Titian Peale and Alexander Rider, and J.J. Audubon (one bird). Contemporary half green morocco and marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers, top edge gilt (hinges reinforced) Provenance: Louis Bennett Bishop (armorial ink stamp on endpapers) The first Jardine edition of a key work in the study of American birds. Alexander Wilson was the first ornithologist to undertake a systematic study of the birds of America. Wilson, who was born in Scotland, turned to the study of American ornithology full time in 1802 under the tutelage of William Bartram. At the time of the appearance of the first part of his grand work in 1807, no similar study in any branch of natural science had yet been undertaken in America, and only one colour-plate book of any scope had been published in the infant nation (Birch's Views of Philadelphia). Between 1808 and 1813 Wilson managed, after overcoming innumerable difficulties, to travel over much of the United States collecting material whilst also managing his ambitious publication. He died in 1813, exhausted by his task, and the final parts of the first edition of his work were eventually seen through the press by his friend George Ord. After the defeat of Napoleon, various members of the Bonaparte family took refuge in America, including his nephew, Prince Charles Lucian Bonaparte. The young Bonaparte proved to be an ornithological prodigy, and undertook the writing of a supplement to Wilson, which was completed in 1833. The contemporary importance of Wilson's work can be judged by the fact that the present edition -- edited and with a biography of Wilson by famed ornithologist Sir William Jardine -- was published the year before the appearance of the final volume of the Bonaparte supplement. This first Jardine edition contains all of Wilson's work and the first three volumes of Bonaparte's continuation, with all plates re-engraved to scale by Lizars. "This is by far the best edition of the American Ornithology, both on account of the beautiful plates and the most interesting notes of the editor" (Neville Wood, quoted in Allibone, A Critical Dictionary of English Literature).

        Manuscript collection of compositions on a variety of subjects

      1832-35], [Pembroke, CT? 1832 - 8vo, pp. [2], 100, [2]; 6 leaves of mounted dried flowers (mostly perished) at back; 1 extra bifolium laid in containing three pages of "wandering thoughts"; contemporary quarter red calf over marbled paper- covered boards; upper joint cracked at the top, boards rubbed and bumped; very good. A manuscript notebook full of pontification on a variety of subjects, some rather mundane ("Friendship is an acquisition which is very necessary and needful in life"), and some on more colorful topics: the autobiography of a hat, Yankee peddlers ("Among the variety of imposters which we daily meet the yanks peddlers must be the first which comes under our observation"); slavery; the plight of the Indians; fashion ("Where the old fashioned knee-buckles have been turned into some article of fancy; the sheepskin pantaloons and horn buttons have given place to morocco shoes and shell combs"). Thirty-three entries are provided in all. One describes the town of Pembroke, CT; there seems little otherwise to indicate where these essays were written. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
