        Observations on the Mussulmauns of India: descriptive of their manners, customs, and habits, and religious opinions. . . .

      Parbury, Allen, and Co. 1832 Full calf, each volume bearing a spine label and the gilt stamp of ?The Society of Writers to the Signet? on all four covers, both rebacked; occasional annotation in pencil. Unidentified bookplate on the paste - down of each volume. First edition. No mere travelogue, this fascinating and often overlooked work is an important account of the customs, beliefs, and practices of Muslims in India during the early nineteenth century. Written in the form of 27 letters by an Englishwoman who spent twelve years in northern India with her husband, an employee of the East India Company, this account challenged many of the reigning stereotypes held by Westerners at the time. Although she remained a Christian, the author gained intimate knowledge of the community in which she lived and included detailed descriptions of daily life and customs, including everything from the role of charity in Muslim culture to interactions between masters and slaves. Indeed, she even accounts on the life of Musalman ladies, describing religious feasts and fasts, marriage ceremonies and that of the surroundings of a native household. This occurred during the reigns of Ghazi - ud - din Haidar and Nasir - ud - din Haidar, who occupied the throne during her residence at Lucknow. Avoiding many references to the palace intrigues and apparent mis - administration, she makes only apologies for the disorganized state of the country. Apparently after the author returned to England, it is likely that she was attached in some capacity to the household of the Princess Augusta (d.1840), as the list of subscribers to her book is headed by Queen Adelaide, the Princess Augusta, and other ladies of the Royal Family. She must have been in good repute among Anglo - Indians, because several well - known names appear in the list. According to the preface to the second edition of 1917 by William Crooke: ?The value of the book rests on the fact that it is a record of the first - hand experiences of an English lady who occupied the exceptional position of membership of a Musalman family. She tells us nothing of her friends in Lucknow, but she had free access to the houses of respectable Sayyids, and thus gained ample facilities for the study of the manners and customs of Musalman families. Much of her information on Islam was obtained from her husband and his father, both learned, travelled gentlemen, and by them she was treated with a degree of toleration unusual in a Shi?ah household, this sect being rigid and often fanatical followers of Islam.?

        Melodious Willow Wren - Sylvia Hippolais

      London 1832 - ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.*** This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from John Gould's (1804-1881) monumental work "Birds of Europe" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ½” x 21 ½” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. 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 catalog 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.

Cm.29,5x19. Legature coeve in piena tela, con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. Celebre testata popolare inglese della prima metà del XIX secolo. Così gli editori presentano il foglio nel primo numero del 31 Marzo 1832: "In a book upon the Poor, published in 1673, called 'The Grand Concern of England explained,' we find the following singular proposal: "that the multitude of stage - coaches and caravans, now travelling upon the roads, may all, or most of them, be suppressed, especially those within forty, fifty, or sixty miles of London". The evil of the stage - coaches is somewhat difficult to be perceived at the present day; but this ingenious author had no doubt whatever on the matter, "for," says he, "will any man keep a horse for himself and another for his man, all the year, for to ride one or two journies, that at pleasure, when he hath occasion, can step to any place where his business lies, for two, three, or four shillings, if within twenty miles of London, and so proportionately into any part of England?". We laugh at the lamentations over the evil of stage coaches, because we daily see or experience the benefits of the thousands of public conveyances carrying forward the personal intercourse of a busy population, and equally useful whether they run from Paddington to the Bank or from the General Post - Office to Edinburgh. Some however, who acknowledge the fallacy of putting down long and short stages, that horses may be kept all the year, "for to ride one or two journies", may fall into the very same mistake with regard to knowledge that was thus applied to communication. They may desire to retain a monopoly of literature for those who can buy expensive books; they may think a five - guinea quarto (like the horse for one or two journies) a public benefit and look upon a shilling duodecimo to be used by every one "at pleasure, when he hath occasion" (like the stage coach), as a public evil. What the stage - coach has become to the middle classes, we hope our Penny Magazine will be to all classes a universal convenience and enjoyment. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge have considered it proper to commence this publication, from the belief that many persons, whose time and whose means are equally limited, may be induced to purchase and to read it. The various works already published by the society are principally adapted to diligent readers, to those who are anxiously desirous to obtain knowledge in a condensed and, in most cases, systematic form. But there are a very great number of persons who can spare half an hour for the reading of a newspaper, who are sometimes disinclined to open a book. For these we shall endeavour to prepare a useful and entertaining Weekly Magazine, that may be taken up and laid down without requiring any considerable effort; and that may tend to fix the mind upon calmer, and, it may be, purer subjects of thought than the violence of party discussion, or the stimulating details of crime and suffering. We have, however, no expectation of superseding the newspaper, and no desire to supersede it. We hope only to share some portion of the attention which is now almost exclusively bestowed upon "the folio of four pages", by those who read little and seldom. We consider it the duty of every man to make himself acquainted with the events that are passing in the world, with the progress of legislation, and the administration of the laws; for every man is deeply interested in all the great questions of government. Every man, however, may not be qualified to understand them; but the more he knows, the less hasty and the less violent will be his opinions. The false judgments which are sometimes formed by the people upon public events, can only be corrected by the diffusion of sound knowledge. Whatever tends to enlarge the range of observation, to add to the store of facts, to awake the reason, and to lead the imagination into agreeable and innocent trains of thought, may assist in the establishment of a sincere and ardent desire for information; and in this point of view our little Miscellany may prepare the way for the reception of more elaborate and precise knowledge, and be as the small optic - glass called "the finder", which is placed by the side of a large telescope, to enable the observer to discover the star which is afterwards to be carefully examined by the more perfect instrument".

        Runs of two 19th-century periodicals: FIGARO IN LONDON & THE LITERARY GUARDIAN AND SPECTATOR OF BOOKS, SCIENCE, FINE ARTS, ETC.

      William Strange ; William Tindall, London 1832 - 4to. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. Various. Two runs of early nineteenth-century periodical bound together. #1-62 ; #1-45 issues. The first is the well-known Figaro in London , with a title page Volume 1 for the year 1832. No. 1 is dated Saturday, December 10, 1831, followed by a complete run through No. 62 dated Saturday, February 9, 1832 (which should be 1833). No. 61 is correctly dated as Saturday, February 2, 1833. (Union List of Serials, 1558).There is no title page for Volume 2, although the run certainly goes well into it. Figaro in London was published by William Strange, edited by Gilbert á Beckett and illustrated by Robert Seymour. Strange was a bookseller in London who carried many of the popular papers of the day. á Beckett went on to greater fame as one of the editors of Punch, of which Figaro in London was a precursor. Seymour, gifted illustrator and caricaturist, was well known. He committed suicide while illustrating the Pickwick Papers. This is a complete run of The Literary Guardian andSpectator of Books, Science , Fine Arts, Etc. (Union List of Serials , 2438). They have been bound somewhat in reverse. #28-45 precede #1-27 . The publisher was William Tindall. It may be noted that this paper could be purchased weekly at William Strange's bookshop. There are few illustrations, mostly those of a scientific nature. Per OCLC, while a number of libraries have The Literary Guardian on microfiche, very few have actual copies. The spine cloth is separating, some of the signatures have come loose, and the boards are very worn. The pages are surprisingly good, although some of them are tattered at the edges. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Common Tern. Sterna Hirundo

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe, Volume V Natores, published in London 1832-37. 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. Terns are seabirds in the taxonomic family, Sternidae. They boast some of the longest distance migrations of any other family of birds. The Common Tern has a circumpolar distribution breeding in temperate and sub-Arctic regions of Europe, Asia and east and central North America. It is strongly migratory, wintering in coastal tropical and subtropical regions. It is sometimes known as the sea swallow. 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.

        [Group of Eight Privately Printed Works]

      [London], [late 1800s]. Very Good. A very scarce collection of Lushington's privately printed writings. All were printed by the Chiswick Press. Vernon Lushington (1832-1912) was an English solicitor, a Positivist, an associate of many famous writers and artists, a friend of the Pre-Raphaelites, and the father of the model for Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. He remains virtually unknown today, but recently available family archives reveal how interesting and important figure he was. It was Lushington who arranged the first meeting between his friend Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones. He contributed to The Oxford and Cambridge Magazine and remained a long-time friend of William Morris, often visiting Kelmscott Manor. There was also a close connection between the Lushington and the Stephen family. After his wife died, Lushington's three daughters were taken under the wing of Julia Stephen, wife of Leslie Stephen, and mother of Virginia Woolf. The eldest daughter, Kitty, became the model for the eponymous heroine of Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway. Lushington's views on Positivism, politics, and literature are clearly evident in the occasional poetry he wrote and had printed by the Chiswick Press. This collection comprises: 1) Positivist Hymns, London, 1885. First edition. Original wrappers. 60 pages. 2) Moses. [London n.d.] First edition. Original wrappers. 28 pages. 3) St. Paul. [London, n.d.] First edition. Original wrappers.17 pages. 4) Sonnets on the Positivist Calendar. [London, n.d.]. Original wrappers. 5) Good for Evil: or a Marriage in Kensington Square. [London, n.d.] 7 pages. 6) Remembered Words. [London, n.d.]. Original wrappers. 27 pages. 7) A Slab Tomb in Rome [London, n.d.] 12 pages. 8) Prophetic. [London, n.d.]. 2 pages. Some light wear and browning to the wrappers but still very good copies of such fragile publications. POE/103014.

        Vulture Fulvus, Linn (Griffon Vulture)

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. 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. This hand-colored lithograph, Vulture Fulvus, (Linn), measures 21.5” x 14.75” and is in very good condition with light staining throughout. This vulture, commonly called the Griffon Vulture, is expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown and gray with a white collar and head. The precise lines on this bird detail and define each feather creating a large plumage. The Griffon Vulture has a large wing span with small, darkly colored tail feathers. This vulture is prominently displayed among an abstract background, where the artists fine detailing and shading can be appreciated.

        A Ramble of Six Thousands Miles through the United States of America

      London: Effingham Wilson,, 1832. Octavo (213 × 130 mm) Contemporary green calf by J. Kelly, matching morocco label, narrow bands with dotted roll, compartments gilt with floral and foliate arabesque tools within a triple fillet panel, panel of triple gilt fillet and double fillet in blind to the boards, gilt edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers, red silk page-marker. Plate of the Cherokee language. A little rubbed, light toning, some heavy browning in the lower margin of 7 early leaves and the plate, but overall very good. First edition. A slightly chatty, but informative travelogue. The author (whose real name was O'Ferrall) set out to experience America as it really was, from his choice of ship onwards; "Our vessel was manned with a real American crew, that is, a crew, of which scarcely two men are of the same nation - which conveys a tolerably correct notion of the United States." From New York City he toured New York state, visiting Niagara Falls, then Cincinnati, Robert Owen's New Harmony in Indiana, St. Louis, Louisville, and south to Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland, and Louisiana, returning to New York via Philadelphia "the handsomest city in the union." An attractive copy of a useful and well-travelled account of the state of America in the early nineteenth century, with much on the condition of the black population and the indigenous races. Howes considered it a "valuable source for the Illinois and Indiana frontier" (Howes).

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.

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.
