It is worth all the "great big books" upon the same subject, and, strange to say, has scarcely a spice of the leaven of party wickedness in its pages. The information is in a facete but earnest vein, and we cheerfully miss in its tone the dull preachment, the cold calculation, and matter-of-fact obstinacy of a work professing to be statistical. After a just censure upon the swarm of books on emigration, and their insufficiencies, (from which we are glad to perceive Mr. Gourlay's "really valuable and statistical account" is exempt,) the writer observes:" quoted from  The Mirror of Literature, Amusement, and Instruction: Volume 20, No. 557, July 14, 1832, page 29combined with ..:#3) 1834 An Essay religious and political on Ecclesiastical Finance, as regards the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland  by Rev David O.

        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.

        Red-necked Phalarope, Phalaropus Hyperboreus

      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”. 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. 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.

Nach der Schulzeit begann er 1815 als Lehrling seines Vaters, studierte daneben an der Kunstakademie in Dresden. 1820/21 begleitete er den russischen Fürst Narischkin als Zeichner auf einer Reise nach Paris. 1823-26 reiste er nach Italien, wo er unter anderen mit Joseph Anton Koch und Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld zusammentraf. Dies prägte seine idealistisch-harmonische Landschaftsauffassung. 1828-35 lehrte er an der Zeichenschule der Porzellanmanufaktur in Meißen, wo Gottfried Pulian zu seinen Schülern zählte. 1826 wurde er als Lehrer für Lasndschaftsmalerei an die Dresdner Kunstakademie berufen. Für die Reihe ?Das malerische und romantische Deutschland? des Leipziger Verlegers Georg Wigand schuf er die Ansichten für die Bände zu Harz, Franken und Riesengebirge. In den späten 1830er Jahren begann er mit Holzschnitt-Illustrationen für Bücher, die ihn unter einem größeren Laienpublikum in Deutschland bekannt machten. Schließlich wurde er zum Professor für Landschaftsmalerei in Dresden ernannt. 1873 musste er aufgrund eines Augenleidens mit dem Malen aufhören und schied 1876 aus der Kunstakademie in Dresden aus..

        Manuscript with Drawings - Butterflies from Around the World

      England, 1832. United Kingdom, circa 1832. A meticulous manuscript journal of lepidoptery containing 95 exquisite coloured ink drawings of butterfly and moth specimens, citing observations made and then only recently published by naturalist Thomas Brown, a work of unprecedented scope on the subject. 174 pages including index; some integral blanks between the three sections. Watermarked leafs with occasional floral embossed stamp to corners. 18mo. Original purpose-made calf binding with ornate tooling, marbled endpapers, four raised bands and label to spine reading "Book of Butterflies - Brown." Volume measures 10 x 14 cm. Drawings range in size, the largest measuring approximately 6 x 7 cm and the smallest 3,5 x 2 cm. Corners bumped, otherwise in very good condition, a most pleasing journal with stellar artistic renderings. The writer of this volume is unknown, though he or she is a skilled artist with an evident interest in natural history. With access to the authoritative work on butterflies, then the only one of its kind, the first edition now being extremely scarce, this journal contains 95 illustrations rendered with exceptional likeness and striking colours. Each drawing is captioned with its common English name, its Latin name, and primary habitat. Only the Pivot sphinx moth is identified but not drawn. Specimens examined are as far reaching as Suriname, Amboyna in Indonesia, the East Indies, Cochinchina (Vietnam), the Americas - especially Suriname in South America, Africa, China and Siberia. A select number of specimens, those most curious, rare, or of special interest to the writer/artist, are also accompanied by concise descriptions. The volume begins with notes on the "Classification of Lepidopterous Insects" and concludes with a table of contents. Some of the most curious and colourful specimens are found in this journal, including: • The Death's-head Hawkmoth named for its distinctly eerie markings on the thorax resembling a human skull, a genus which had only been identified in 1809 by German entomologist J.H. Laspeyres • The Chinese Silkworm moth native to and fundamental to China • The Oriental Emperor of China • The Hector Torjan of India • The Imperial Trojan of Amboyna (Maluku) with its 7 inch wingspan • The distinct spotted Phlegia of Suriname • The Silver Striped yellow genus of the United Kingdom • The Hummingbird Hawk moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) which actually hovers in midair while they feed on nectar from flowers • The Wandering Moth or Phalaena Erota of Suriname, recorded as "A very rare species" • The female Hortman moth of Anglesea in Australia • The Dark Crimson Underwing moth (Catocala sponsa) • The Friendly moth or Phalaena Amica of Africa, also note as "Very Rare" • The Hebe Tiger Moth of Germany with its striking marbled appearance • The Bright Moth or Phalaena Flavia attributed to Siberia (distinctly similar to the Yellow Tiger Moth or Arctia flavia) An elegant, high quality custom binding houses the work, the artist's choice of tooling being most fitting with floral vines. Several leafs are also imprinted with an embossed stamp of a rose. The label recognizing Thomas Brown suggests respect, possibly for a colleague in the same industry. The first edition of "The Book of Butterflies, Sphinges, and Moths..." published in 1832, on which this journal is based, contained 96 engravings, and was the first work devoted solely to the butterfly family. Captain Thomas Brown (1785-1862) was a British naturalist and malacologist, born in Perth, Scotland. After his military service, he wrote several natural history books, a few dealing with conchology, also, "The Book of butterflies, Sphinges, and Mths" and "The Taxidermist's Manual." He also made the illustrations for a well known book on American ornithology by Alexander Wilson and Charles Lucien Bonaparte (1831-1835). Brown was a fellow of the Linnean Society, a member of the Wernerian, Kirwanian and Phrenological Societies, and president of the Physical Society. Material from his books was used by United States naturalist Thomas Wyatt for his book Manual of Conchology. In 1840 he became curator of the Manchester Museum for twenty-two years. A species of sea snail, a marine gastropod, was named after him: Zebina browniana d'Orbigny, 1842. The first edition of Thomas Brown's work was published in Edinburgh and London, 1832, titled, "The Book of Butterflies, Sphinges, and Moths: illustrated by ninety-six engravings, coloured after nature." A second and expanded edition appeared in 1834, "The Book of Butterflies, Sphinges, and Moths: illustrated by one hundred and forty-four engravings, coloured after nature." . Very Good.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Posen, 21. August 1832.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An Raimund Haertel (geb. 1810) vom Musikverlag Breitkopf & Haertel: "Auf unsere mündliche Unterredung bei Ihrer Anwesenheit in Berlin mich beziehend, bin ich so frei, Ihnen anbei ein Heft von 6 Liedern zu übersenden. Das Lied Hop, hop, hop [!] mein Kindchen', welches bei Ihnen in meinem op. 6 einstimmig erschienen ist, befindet sich hierin unter Nro. 3 mit Klavierbegleitung, wie wir verabredeten, da die Leute es so oft mit Begl[eitung] verlangt haben. Was das Honorar betrifft, so stelle ich Ihnen den billigen Preis von 1 Louisd'or für den Druckbogen. In Betracht dessen nun, daß das Lied N. 3 nur ein Arrangement ist (welches ich gerne gratis gemacht haben will) so wollen wir es von der Bogenzahl abrechnen und wird dann der übrige Theil des Manuscripts mindestens 4 Druckbogen füllen [...] Seit meinem letzten Schreiben an Sie, mit welchem ich mir die Freiheit nahm, Ihnen den Klavierauszug meines Te Deum's zur Ansicht zu schicken, bin ich hier in Posen (zum Besuch bei meinem Vater) und habe mich so gut unterhalten, wie es möglich ist; ich habe hier eine Messe geschrieben, welche an diesem Sonntag den 26t. im hiesigen Dom, dessen Einweihungsfest gefeiert wird, aufgeführt wird und dann will ich wieder nach Berlin zurück, um mein Te Deum aufzuführen.

Nach einem erneuten Italienaufenthalt wurde er als Nachfolger Conradin Kreutzers Hofkapellmeister; 1842 begründete er die Philharmonischen Konzerte, in deren Rahmen er 1843 eine vielbeachtete Aufführung von Beethovens 9. Symphonie gab. 1847 übersiedelte er nach Berlin, wo er im Jahr darauf die Leitung des Domchors und die Kapellmeisterstelle an der Kgl. Oper übernahm. Mit seiner komischen Oper "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor" begründete er "den komischen Typus der deutschen romantischen Oper" (DBE). - Ohne die erwähnte Beilage. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt; mit stärkeren Läsuren und kleineren Einrissen am linken und rechten Rand; Bl. 2 mit kl. Ausschnitt durch Siegelbruch (keine Textberührung und alt hinterlegt).
