        Little Grebe, Podiceps minor

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881). A selection from Birds of Europe, published in London 1832-1837, printed by C. Hullmandel. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Condition: Very good, some very minor age spots, small paper rub in the right corner. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The preparatory drawings that he produced were passed on for completion to skilled illustrators, most notably his wife, Elizabeth, and Edward Lear. The plates which resulted from such partnerships were a splendid fusion of art and science, with a scope that remains unsurpassed. Stunning and at the same time highly accurate, Gould's illustrations linked beauty to science, and science to beauty, in and an unprecedented manner. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been re-colored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Mitchell's Travellers Guide through the United States. A Map of the Roads, Distances, Steam Boats & Canal Routes &c

      Philadelphia.: S. Augustus Mitchell.. 1832.. Map, handcolored engraving, 17 x 21 1/2 on sheet 17 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, folding as issued into gilt decorative black leather covered boards 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Cover worn, head of spine chipped, inner hinge split, previous owner's name and date of 1832 plus other pen marking on front pastedown; archivally repaired splits at several map folds, short separations at several fold intersections but overall the map is in very bright, crisp condition. There is no "single separate folded sheet" as described in the David Rumsey record for this map (there is paper residue to the front endpaper and this may have been where the folded sheet was tipped in). This is the first edition of this important map in the settlement of the United States. The map extends west to the Missouri Territory, with Mexico at the lower left corner, where Texas makes its appearance in later issues of the map. There are a total of nine map insets: Vicinity of Cincinnati; Vicinity of Albany; Vicinity of New Orleans; Vicinity of the Falls of Niagara; Vicinity of Boston; Vicinity of New York; Vicinity of Charleston; Vicinity of Baltimore and Washington; Vicinity of Philadelphia. This copy is lacking the printed index which in this edition appeared on a sheet of the same size as the map and was folded into the front cover. Shown are: Turnpike Roads, Principal travelling roads, Common roads, Canals, Rail Roads. A very handsome example of Mitchell's engraved maps, portraying the States on the eve of a rapid transformation. .

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Rom, 13. VIII. 1832.. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Siegelresten und Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to.. An Christian August Heinrich Clodius (1772-1836), Professor der Philosophie in Leipzig: "Theuerster alter Jugendfreund. Ihr letztes Schreiben habe ich durch Hennig aus Florenz erhalten, wo sich derselbe befindet. Es mußte mir besonders erfreulich seyn, da es mir die Hoffnung gewährt, Sie bald in Rom zu sehen, wodurch mir ein höchst sehnlicher Wunsch erfüllt würde. O wie oft erfreue ich mich in dem Gedanken, mit Ihnen in das alte Rom hinausschieben zu können, wie wir dereinst zu dem Gallischen Thor hinausschoben. Lassen Sie Sie [!] sich ja, von dem Besuche zu Ihrem alten Freund, nicht durch die Fabeln abschrecken, die man in dem liberalen Norddeutschland von den Gefahren von der sogenannten heiligen Armee erdichten mag. Es ist hier alles ruhig: Niemand hat auf einer Reise nach Rom Hindernisse zu befürchten, und soweit erstreckt sich wohl mein diplomatisches Ansehen, um Sie hier vor allen möglichen Unannehmlichkeiten zu schützen. Nur möchte ich Sie daran erinnern sich, wegen der in Deutschland noch wüthenden Cholera, mit einem Gesundheitspasse zu versehen. Sollte ich wirklich so glücklich seyn Sie noch einmal wiederzusehen, so dürften wir wohl so manches mit einander abzuhandeln haben. Ich bin noch immer das, was man zur Zeit unseres Beysammenseyns einen Aristokraten nannte, jetzt einen Absolutisten und Jesuiten zu nennen pflegt, ungeachtet ich mich mit denen von dieser Partey eben auch nicht sonderlich vertrage. Ich suche mich in meinen Gedanken möglichst von der Gegenwart zu entfernen: sie hat für mich kein Interesse mehr; und ich kann, in der gegenwärtigen Richtung der Zeit, nur die Auflösung alles dessen sehen, was die menschliche Gesellschaft durch göttliche Bande verknüpft, und dem Leben wahren Gehalt ertheilt. Gern versetze ich mich daher in die Zeiten einer würdigen Vergangenheit, gegen die mir die Gegenwart flach, seicht, und von aller Schönheit des Lebens entfernt, vorkommt. Von alle dem wäre mündlich zwischen uns ein Mehreres zu reden. Grüßen Sie mir herzlich meine alten Freunde, Herrmann, und Heinroth, und empfehlen Sie mich dem Dr. Härtel und seiner Schwester [...]". - Einige Randeinrisse von Siegelöffnung. Der Sohn des Anthropologen Ernst Platner studierte an der Akademie seiner Heimatstadt Leipzig, bevor er sich in Dresden und Wien weiterbildete. Im Jahre 1800 ließ er sich in Rom nieder, wo er den Rest seines Lebens blieb und 1823 zum Konsul des Sächsischen Hofs ernannt wurde. Sein um ein Jahr älterer Freund und Korrespondenzpartner, Sohn des Dichters und Philosophen Christian August Clodius, war schon seit 1795 Dozent in Leipzig und erwarb sich Verdienste als Herausgeber Seumes und Klopstocks.

        Personal ALS by Baudin veteran and later Commander-in-Chief of the French during the Mexican "Pastry War"

      Lyon: 28 July, 1832. Four page letter, single sheet folded to letter-size 258 x 207 mm., torn with small loss at original black wax seal, French postal marks, very good. Candid and personal letter by the junior Baudin. A personal and revealing letter by the Baudin voyage veteran Charles Baudin, written at a time when his family fortunes were at a low ebb.After his return from the Baudin voyage Charles - no relation to Nicolas - was one of the naval officers to become a senior officer during the Napoleonic Wars. A fierce patriot, he counselled Napoleon to risk the naval blockade after Waterloo, and it is therefore not surprising that he was pushed out of the Navy, joining the merchant marine in 1816 and ultimately having great success. After the July Revolution of 1830 he rejoined the Navy, and took part in the Mexican "Pastry War" of 1838, before a long late career in the Navy which saw him promoted Admiral just before his death in 1854.Baudin has an unusual hand, but quite legible (with some patience). The letter is written to a close friend in Valenciennes, and deals predominantly with the recent loss suffered by his mother-in-law and wife, and notes that although the worst was over by April, both are still quite shaken by the death of his father-in-law. Worse, writes Baudin, financial disaster has overcome that part of the family, and its effects will be much felt, in no small part because of problems with gambling debts. Baudin is evidently troubled, and worried that it might touch his own family, and not just because of the sorrow of his wife.It is most unusual to have letters relating to the personal affairs of early voyagers, making this a fascinating glimpse into Baudin's life in the early years of his second naval career.

        A Chancellor in 1832! 7-1/2" x 11" Watercolor on Matted Board

      1832. Watercolor Caricature of Sir Edward Sugden [Sugden, Sir Edward (1781-1875)]. A Chancellor in 1832!. 7-1/2" x 11" watercolor on board, attractively matted. Great Britain, Possibly Ireland, 1835?. Toning, a few minor waterstains, small inkstain near bottom right corner, otherwise fine. * Possibly intended as the basis for a lithograph, this cartoon depicts a drunken Lord Sugden, wig askew and clutching a table for balance. He is addressing the Bench: "My Lord, (hiccup) this Sir Edward Bug--no, damn it, I Mean Sir Edward Sug-hiccup) den-this Bug-Sug-Bug! My Lord, I beg pardon, I'm rather & & &." There is a quote from Shakespeare below the image: "It fitteth not a Noble thus to plead!" Sugden, lawyer, judge and conservative politician, was Solicitor General of Great Britain in 1829-30, Lord Chancellor of Ireland in 1835, then from 1841 to 1846, and Lord Chancellor of Great Britain in 1852. He is wearing barrister's robes in this caricature, which indicates the period in his career between 1831 and 1835, when he practiced as a barrister and sat in the House of Commons. The caricature appears to be a commentary on his role as a leading opponent of the Reform Bill of 1832, which made him a prominent figure in British politics. The artist refers to Sugden as Chancellor, which leads us to date the image to 1835, the year of his Irish Chancellorship and a time when he was famous for his opposition to the Reform Bill.

        Lead-Coloured Falcon. Falco concolor; (Temm)

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Preliminary Catalogue of Fixed Stars intended for a Prospectus of a Catalogue of the Stars of the Southern Hemisphere

      Hamburg: Perthes and Besser, 1832. Quarto, presentation inscription, the pages with a central fold, but an excellent copy in the original cloth binding gilt, red library stamp to verso of title-page. Royal presentation copy of the first Australian star catalogue, based on Parramatta observations. Very rare, and a foundation work of Australian science: the first Australian star catalogue, this copy inscribed by the author to the King of Hanover and Duke of Cumberland, Ernest Augustus.Christian Carl Ludwig Rümker (1788-1862), was a German astronomer who arrived in England in 1809. He worked for the East India Company and the merchant navy, before being press-ganged into the Royal Navy in 1813. Over the next few years he began making observations, including publishing the results of work he did at Malta. Recommended to the incoming Governor Brisbane personally, he arrived as part of the official party in 1821, beginning work at Brisbane's Parramatta observatory where he made several discoveries including "Encke's Comet". A bitter disagreement with Brisbane led him to resign his post, and to retreat to his new property at Picton, "Stargard".In 1826 he returned to Parramatta at the behest of Alexander Macleay, and was appointed government astronomer in December 1827, the first person to hold that title. He returned to London at the end of the decade, but another quarrel, this time with the president of the Royal Astronomical Society, Sir James South, led to Rümker finally being dismissed from British service and returning to Hamburg. Still working as an astronomer, at some point he became reconciled to Brisbane, as is beautifully shown by the present work's dedication to him as "Governor in Chief of Australia and Founder of the Observatory at Paramatta".Rümker's later career was prolific, publishing scores of papers and being honoured with many fellowships, and continuing to work on his trail-blazing Parramatta observations. He died at Lisbon in 1862. "When awarding the gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society to Rümker, the astronomer royal, Sir George Biddell Airy, said that Rümker's dismissal was 'the greatest misfortune that happened to Southern Astronomy'" (ADB).The book is inscribed by Rümker to Ernest Augustus I (1771-1851), the fifth son of George III.

        Ueber Faraday's neueste Entdeckung.

      München, Weber, 1832.. Erste Ausgabe. 8vo. 31 S. Das Titelblatt oben mit einem hinterlegten Aussschnitt (ca. 1 x 7 cm). Bedruckte Orig.-Broschur. - Schneeberger, Schelling 119. In der Original-Broschur sehr selten."Seine wohl bedeutendste Festrede hält Schelling am 28. März 1832; ihr Thema ist die Entdeckung der elektromagnetischen Induktion durch Michael Faraday. Schelling begrüßt die experimentellen Ergebnisse Faradays als eine Bestätigung der naturphilosophischen Überzeugung, daß Magnetismus und Elektrizität nur verschiedene Erscheinungsformen derselben physikalischen Kraft seien. Diese These findet sich im Ersten Entwurf eines Systems der Naturphilosophie von 1799 [...] Es erscheint nicht übertrieben, in Schelling den geistigen Wegbereiter der elektromagnetischen Feldtheorie zu sehen." (J. Kirchhoff)..
