        Willow Ptarmigan - Lagopus saliceti

      London 1832 - This splendid hand-colored, folio size lthograph from John Gould's (1804-1881)monumental book "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.

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.

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. Den Klavierauszug bitte ich Sie nach Berlin an G. Bethge zu remittiren [...]". - Otto Nicolai war Schüler von Carl Friedrich Zelter und kam über Rom nach Wien, wo er als Kapellmeister am Kärntnertortheater wirkte. 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).

Otherwise a very good set. First edition of this major early work on the history and development of Canada. Joseph Bouchette (1774-1841) was a Canadian militia officer and loyalist who qualified as a surveyor in early 1791. He initially gained fame in 1815 by publishing an extensive map and catalogue of Canada. This was an early synthesis of information on the region and Bouchette received a gold medal from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. The present work, Bouchette's second publication, is far more detailed and comprehensive and was the result of several years' research in the late 1820s.

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.

        Oyster Catcher - Haematopus ostralegus

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe published in London 1832-37. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½” 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.

        BLACK HAWK WAR MILITARY DISCHARGE PAPER FOR PRIVATE ARON RICHARDSON

      Beardstown: B. M'Cary, Printer, 1832., 1832. 11cm x 20cm printed Black Hawk Indian War discharge certificate issued to Aron Richardson on the 22nd day of August 1832, and completed in ink manuscript. Certificate has an ornamental border and reads, "I certify that [Aron Richardson a Privt] served in my Company of Mounted Volunteers as [a private] lately in the service of the United States, under the command of Gen. Samuel Whitesides, in the [4] Regiment, commanded by Col. [Samuel M. Thompson], entered said service on the [23] day of [April] 1832, and having served [Fifty] days, was honorably discharged therefrom on the [11th] day of [June] 1832. Given under my hand, this [22] day of [August] 1832. [Wm. C. Ralls]." All names mentioned on the discharge have been located in FOUR sources: Perry A. Armstrong's THE SAUKS AND THE BLACK HAWK WAR (pp. 665 & 667). A full description of the 4th Regiment, Col. Thompson, Capt. Ralls's Company, and Private Aron Richardson are found there. Also see the four volume Collections of the Illinois State Historical Library, THE BLACK HAWK WAR 1831 - 1832, Volumes XXXV to XXXVIII, Compiled and Edited By Ellen M. Whitney, 1970 thru 1978. For statistics on the First Illinois Mounted Volunteer Militia, Brig. Gen. Samuel Whiteside's (Madison County) Brigade, Fourth Regiment, Col. Samuel M. Thompson (Sangamon County), Captain William C. Ralls Company (Rushville, Pike County), Starting at page 171, Volume I. The third location for information is from the Adjutant General's Report Illinois, Volume 9, ROSTER OF THE OFFICERS AND ENLISTED MEN, BLACK HAWK WAR, page 99, 1902. Fourth, see Isaac H. Elliot, RECORD OF SERVICES OF ILLINOIS SOLDIERS IN THE BLACK HAWK WAR, 1831-32. Adjutant-General of the State of Illinois, Springfield, IL, H. W. Rokker, State Printer and Binder, 1882. Aron Richardson was from Schulyer County, Illinois, and was mustered into service at Beardstown, Illinois. To summarize, Richardson enlisted, apparently with his brother for thirty days in the First Volunteer Army of 1832, then remained in the same, yet reduced, company for twenty more, leaving the day before the 2nd Volunteer Army formed. He was in Abraham Lincoln's regiment, although Lincoln was a Captain of another company. He saw representative action of this fleeting war, most notably the burning of the Prophet's Village and the aftermath of Stillman's Run. Benjamin F. McCary, the printer of this discharge was the editor of the Beardstown, Illinois Chronicle, with first publication beginning in January, 1832. Black Hawk War material is very scarce, particularly items from the period that are as clearly documented as this. This war is a lost military event, the final conflict of the Old Northwest. Quoting Armstrong, "We can hardly call it a war; yet it was in every sense a tremendous scare." Fine and crisp, housed in a four-point quarter leather and cloth folding slipcase.

        Spur-winged Plover, Pluvianus spinosus

      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.

        DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND GEOGRAPHICAL CHART OF THE U. STATES OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia: Thomas Morrison, 1832. Broadside, 27 by 20 inches in modern tiger maple molded frame. Broadside of the Declaration. Published by Morrison and printed by C.A. Elliott of Philadelphia. Copyright December 8, 1832. Central medallion bust of George Washington flanked by spread-wing eagles with printed text of the Declaration, printed facsimile signatures of the original signers. Within an architectural border with the title forming an arch aroud Washington's portrait. Information about the 27 states then in the Union includes populations in 1820 and 1830 and principal cities and towns, printed in two columns on either side. At the bottom are a distance chart, a table of electoral votes and a timeline of presidential inaguarations. All within an elaborate type ornamental border. Hand colored in red, green and yellow. We have located only two known copies of this broadside; this copy and the copy in the Albert H. Small Declaration of Independence Collection at the University of Viginia, Charlottesville. During the 1820s and 1830s, a number of facsimiles of the Declaration were produced, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of its adoption in 1826 and perhaps connected with the surge of political activity with the commencement of the Jacksonian era in American politics. Newspaper references from the online reference "America's Historical Newspapers" and WorldCat references to Morrison also included. This item has been professionally restored. Some pieces of the original document missing and replaced with new paper. Copy of the restorer's treatment proposal and restoration report included.

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.***
