        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).

        Prince of Canino). Iconografia della Fauna Italica per le quattro classi degli animali vertebrati.

      - Mammiferi e Uccelli, Anfibi, Pesci. Roma, Tipografia Salviucci, 1832-1841. 3 volumes. Folio (378 x 270mm). pp. (1104), with 180 very fine hand-coloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with richly blind- and gilt-stamped ornaments. A beautiful large uncut copy, given by the author to his wife with the following dedication: "A Madame la Princesse Zénaide Bonaparte, modèle des épouses et des mères. L'Autheur après vingt ans de mariage". The author Charles Lucien Bonaparte was the son of Napoleon's brother Lucien, and Zénaide was the daughter of Napoleon's older brother Joseph. Soon after his marriage Bonaparte went to the United States, where he started a brilliant career as a naturalist and published his 'American ornithology' (Philadelphia 1825-1833). At he age of 25 he returned to Europe and despite his family connections and the disruptions that followed the Napoleonic era, he became a competent and highly respected naturalist.A monumental work on the vertebrate fauna of Italy, published in 30 parts. The splendid plates were lithographed by Battistelli, most of them from drawings by Carolus Ruspi and Petrus Quattochi. "Now he intended to increase the knowledge of all branches of the vertebrates by his researches and theoretical works; with his 'Iconografia della fauna Italica', begun in 1832 and completed in 1841, he added to the understanding of Italian mammals, reptiles, amphibia, and fishes, as well as birds' (Stresemann. Ornithology p. 158). "With his extensive private collection and library housed at his estate in Rome, he began work on his vertebrate zoology of Italy . Volume two, the 'Amfibi', covers herpetology and contains 54 beautiful handcoloured plates, in folio size. It was the standard on the Italian herpetofauna until superseded by Lorenzo Camerano's monographs" (Adler p. 29). The third and largest volume concerns fishes and contains 78 large splendidly hand-coloured plates. These plates represent a unique portrayal of Italian and Mediterranean fishes and have never been surpassed in beauty of execution. Some of the plates have a silver metallic sheen.Nissen, 'Schöne Fischbücher', 26; Nissen ZBI, 459; Wood p. 248; Anker 48. See also P.T.

De fina planscherna är tecknade av bröderna von Wright och delvis läckert handkolorerade. Schreber skriver: "Något motstycke till dessa planscher, hvar och en för sig ett mästerverk, torde hvarken förr eller senare hafva förekommit i någon tidskrift." Efter tre år fick tidningen läggas ned, då förlusterna blivit för stora. Många bidrag är rent zoologiska och andra har kulturhistoriska perspektiv. Eric von Rosen (1879-1948) var en av sin tids främsta svenska jägare och hade ett förnämligt bibliotek på sitt slott Rockelstad i Södermanland

        Sechs Bücher vom Wahren Christenthum nebst dessen Paradiesgärtlein

      Philoadelphia: Georg W. Mentz und Sohn (Sons), 1832. Hardcover. Near Fine. 6 1/4 x 9 1/4 x 4(thick). The first part is 'True Christianity" 941 pages, the second section is "Garden of Paradise" 232 pages. According to Wikipedia " He was born at Ballenstedt, in Anhalt, and studied in several universities. He was at Helmstedt in 1576 and at Wittenberg in 1577. At Wittenberg the crypto-Calvinist controversy was then at its height, and he took the side of Melanchthon and the crypto-Calvinists. He continued his studies in Strasbourg, under the professor of Hebrew, Johannes Pappus (1549-1610), a zealous Lutheran, the crown of whose life's work was the forcible suppression of Calvinistic preaching and worship in the day, and who had great influence over him. After some time his Lutheran tendencies aroused the anger of the authorities, who were of the Reformed Church. Consequently, in 1590 he was deposed for refusing to remove the pictures from his church and discontinue the use of exorcism at baptism. Arndt's fame rests on his writings. These were mainly of a mystical and devotional kind, and were inspired by St Bernard, Johannes Tauler and Thomas à Kempis. His principal work, Wahres Christentum (book 1: 1605; books 1-4: 1606-1610) i.e. "True Christianity", which has been translated into most European languages, has served as the foundation of many books of devotion, both Roman Catholic and Protestant. Arndt here dwells upon the mystical union between the believer and Christ, and endeavors, by drawing attention to Christ's life in His people, to correct the purely forensic side of the reformation theology, which paid almost exclusive attention to Christ's death for His people. Like Luther, Arndt was very fond of the little anonymous book, Theologia Germanica. He published an edition of it and called attention to its merits in a special preface. After Wahres Christentum, his best-known work is Paradiesgärtlein aller christlichen Tugenden, which was published in 1612. Both these books have been translated into English: Paradiesgärtlein with the title the Garden of Paradise, and Wahres Christentum as True Christianity. Several of his sermons are published in R. Nesselmann's Buch der Predigten (1858). Arndt has always been held in very high repute by the German Pietists. The founder of Pietism, Philipp Jakob Spener, repeatedly called attention to him and his writings, and even went so far as to compare him with Plato." This leather bound book is in a remarkable state. All 216 BRASS TACKS are present as are the working leather and metal closing clasps! Endpapers are marbled. Steel engraved frontpiece plus 63 woodcut prints that are quite amazing to look at. Red label on spine. Foxing on all pages but somehow this does not detract from the crisp text or illustrations!
