        Distractions

      1832. first edition. The Manners of French Society Executed with Gentle SatireMONNIER, Henry. CRUIKSHANK, George. Distractions, par Henry Monnier to is friend George Cruikshank. Paris & London: Paulin Libraire-Éditeur, Colnaghi, Son and Co., 1832. First edition. Oblong folio (11 x 15 7/8 inches; 279 x 401 mm.). Lithographed title-page, additional lithograph title with hand-colored vignette by George Cruikshank, and six (of nine) fine hand colored lithographed plates with twenty-nine titled images, lithographed by Delarue after Henry Monnier.An original album of six (of nine) hand colored lithographed plates (plus the George Cruikshank plate) from this exceptionally rare series. Original? plain wrappers, neatly re-backed and stitched as issued. A fine example. Housed in a fleece-lined, half black morocco clamshell case. Our plate count (of six) is identical to the copy in the Bibliotheque National de France.?"Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London, where he collaborated with Lami in what was to become the Voyage en Angleterre. On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation…Some of the salient titles in his human comedy may be mentioned. There are potpourris like Recréations du coeur et de l?'esprit, Paris vivant, and Rencontres Parisiennes. Macédoine pittoresque. There are more closely focussed surveys like Les grisettes, Moeurs administratives, Galerie théâtrale, Boutiques de Paris, and Six Quartiers de Paris. There are suites like Jadis et aujourd?'hui and Les contrastes, which take their departure from comparisons in time or of manners…Monnier was a satirist with a difference. His attitude towards his subjects hardly varies. His aim was to set down what he saw with elegance and precision, but with no overt interpretation or judgment?" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 199).We have never seen another example of this excessively rare suite of plates.We have located only two copies in institutions worldwide: Rijks Museum, Amsterdam (no plate count); Bibliotheque National de France (6 plates). Marie, 475, 476, 478, 479, 480 & 482. Not in Ray. Not in Melcher. Not in Cohn.

        Portraitminiatur Fanny Elßler, links unten signiert "Ender Joh.".

      Wien, um 1832. - Aquarell im roten Originalsamtrahmen, das Bildoval goldgefaßt. 240:200 mm. Bisher verschollene Portraitminiatur der jungen Tänzerin aus der Hand des "gefragtesten Portraitmaler[s] des Biedermeiers in Wien" (AKL XXXIII, 531), entstanden wohl kurz nach 1830 - zur Zeit ihrer ersten großen Wiener Erfolge - und vor der Geburt ihres zweiten unehelichen Kindes, das Elßler 1832 in London zur Welt bringen sollte. - Das halbfigürliche Bildnis zeigt Elßler im schulterfreien weißen Kleid mit Spitzenbesatz und weiten Ärmeln; um den Hals ist ein Hermelin geschlungen, ihre rechte Hand ist auf ein Podest gestützt, die linke hält drei Rosen. Neben einer auffälligen Brosche und Perlengehängen trägt sie auch eine weiße Kamelie im Haar. - Es war übrigens Elßlers späterer Geliebter Friedrich Gentz (1764-1832), der Elßler am Morgen des 26. Dezember 1829 "vier weiße Kamelien aus seinem Gewächshaus [hat] überbringen lassen. Und schon am Abend trug sie eine davon im Haar. Fortan würde ihre Vorliebe für diese kostbaren Blüten sie zur 'Cameliendame' machen" (L. Denk. Fanny Elßler. Tänzerin eines Jahrhunderts. Wien u. München 1984. S. 130f.). Der politische Publizist Gentz galt als "einflußreichster Diplomat Österreichs [.], als Erster Sekretär leitete er die Verhandlungen des Wiener Kongresses" (DBE); dessen späte Beziehung zu Fanny Elßler soll Metternich anläßlich des Ablebens seines engsten Vertrauten folgendermaßen kommentiert haben: "Die romatische Liebe bei Greisen nützt den Geist bald ab und führt das Ende herbei" (zit. n. Denk, S. 124). - Gentz, der Elßlers Wohnung auf der Seilerstätte ausgestattet hatte und bis zu seinem Tod unterhielt, war auch der Auftraggeber einer Portraitzeichnung Carl Agricolas, die im Sommer 1830 für "100 Gulden Conventionsmünze" entstand und die Geliebte ebenfalls in einem "hauchzarten weißen Kleid mit tiefangesetzten Puffärmeln" zeigte (Denk, S. 150 u. Abb. 5; "formerly property of Elisabeth Schumann, destroyed during WWII" lt. Ivor Guest: F. Elssler. Middletown Wesleyan University Press 1970. S. 17). Daß Elßler neben Agricola, Waldmüller, Daffinger und Franz Ruß auch J. N. Ender Modell gesessen hat, findet in der einschlägigen Literatur keine Erwähnung und war bisher unbekannt. - Aus dem Besitz der Nachkommen Kathi Prinsters; diese war von Fanny Elßler in deren eigenh. Testament als "treue Gefährtin meines Lebens" mit "sämtlichen Effekten, als Präziosen, Silber, Möbel, Gardarobe, Chales, Pelze, Porzellan, Glas, Hauseinrichtung usw." (F. Elßler: "Mein letzter Wille" (1884), zit. n. Denk, S. 424f.) aus der bis zuletzt gemeinsam bewohnten Wohnung auf der Seilerstätte bedacht worden. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Baudin's Cockatoo. Calyptorhynclus Baudinii

      [London: E. Lear, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph by Lear, printed by Charles Hullmandel. Wove paper. In gold leaf frame with hand-painted French wash-line. Provenance: John James Audubon. A fine example of the work of "perhaps the greatest draughtsman of birds in European culture." (Philip Hofer) This image is from Lear's masterpiece: "Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots," a work that combines "the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and intuitive sympathy for animal intelligence." (Susan Hayman, "Edward Lear's Birds", 1980) This excellent image is from Lear's first published work, limited to 175 copies, and the first English ornithological work published in folio format with lithographic plates. Lear began work on this monograph when he was only eighteen and carefully supervised every step of the publication. He made many of his original sketches from the live specimens at the Regent's Park Zoological Gardens, and then prepared numerous preliminary lithographs. Many of these appear not to have satisfied him, for they were never published. Christine Jackson describes Lear's painstaking approach to his work: "Lear worked in great detail, outlining every feather and filling in the details with fine lines. This scientific accuracy extended to every part of the bird, from the beak to the claws ...The colouring was done with opaque watercolours with touches of egg-white for parts of the feathers requiring sheen, and for the eye, to add that life-like touch." ( Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, London: 1975).The present image depicts a long-billed black cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus baudinii) native of southwestern Australia, named in honor of the French explorer Nicolas Baudin.The provenance of this plate is impressive, having originally come from a copy of Lear's parrots presented by Lear to famed ornithologist John James Audubon (sold Sotheby's New York, 14 June 1993, lot 62). Cf. Anker 283; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 115; cf. Nissen IVB 536; cf. Ray The Illustrator and the Book 90; Zimmer, pp. 380-381.

        On political economy; in connexion with the moral state and moral prospects of society

      Glasgow: printed for William Collins; ... 1832. 8vo., viii + 566pp., contemporary polished calf, the sides embossed in blind, spine gilt with raised bands and label, all edges gilt. A fine presentation copy inscribed in ink in the author's hand ('To the Revd Dr Euston[?] with Dr. Chalmers best regards')> First edition. Kress C.3079. Goldsmiths 27260. Williams I, p.198. McCulloch p.19. Hollander 2991. Einaudi (1012) has only the 2nd edition. In this treatise, in which Chalmers follows Adam Smith and Malthus rather than Ricardo, the aim is not to develop a new treatise of political economy but through existing doctrines secure the moral, and thereby economic, elevation of society. (His practical applications amongst the poor of Glasgow worked successfully for over twenty years). He was acknowledged by contemporaries: McCulloch, the disciple of Ricardo, criticised him: Malthus, with whom he pursued a somewhat one-sided correspondence, acknowledged the pleasure and instruction of his writings. Schumpeter considered this work 'a book of considerable importance, but not easy to appraise. It represents a curious mixture of sound insights and technical shortcomings.' It is worth observing that Chalmers begins his Preface with a challenging definition of political economy, and why churchmen should be both interested and involved. 'There is one general application', he writes, 'that might be made of the whole subject, and which gives it, in our judgment, its principal claim on the earnest and respectful attention of a Christian philanthropist. Political economy aims at the diffusion of sufficiency and comfort throughout the mass of the population, by a multiplication or enlargement of the outward means and materials of human enjoyment. Now, we hold it to be demonstrable, on its own principles, that, vary its devices and expedients as it may, this is an object which it never can secure, apart from a virtuous and educated peasantry'.

        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land, illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company

      London: John Richardson, 1832. Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map (small marginal tear); very good in original boards, early inked ownership inscription on front board, with later papered spine and printed label, modern slipcase. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness...' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration.Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830."
