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.

        Rock Ptarmigan - Lagopus rupestris

      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. 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.***

        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. 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.

        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. Housed in a custom frame made from 250-year-old Tiger Oak with museum-quality glass.

        Neophron Percnopterus

      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, some signs of aging. 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.***

      Mexico. June 1, 1832.. Broadside, 12 x 11 1/2 inches. One horizontal and one vertical fold, with toning along the latter, official seals stamped on verso. Very good. A rare and important broadside "[a]uthorizing the Government to proceed with the liquidation of the great properties belonging to the Pious Fund. The financial aspects of the confiscation of this religious property are to be cleared up in seven years" - Eberstadt. "The Pious Fund had been created in the seventeenth century to fund the work of the Catholic missions. Secularization of the missions radically changed California. The seizure of the rich, cultivated monastery lands resulted in the empresario system, which allowed Mexican and Anglo colonizers to settle on Native American lands. Mexican authorities, by regulations such as this, intended to replace the old monastico-missionary regime in California. The importance of this decree may be inferred by the fact that it was one of the decrees presented as evidence in the Pious Fund case that came before the International Court of Arbitration in 1899" - Sloan. Very rare, OCLC locates just one copy at Berkeley. EBERSTADT 158:288. DUBLAN & LOZANO 1059. SLOAN PINGENOT AUCTION 58. OCLC 21756640.

        Les Trochilidées ou les Colibris et les Oiseaux-Mouches...

      Paris, A. Bertrand, (1832-33). 8vo (232 x 150mm). pp. (4), iv, 171, (1), xliii (1), with 66 very fine colour-printed engraved plates finished by hand. Contemporary gilt pictorial cloth. A fine clean copy of the first edition. "The concluding section of Lesson's work on hummingbirds; the sections published previously are 'Histoire naturelle des oiseaux-mouches', 1829-30, and 'Histoire naturelle des colibris' 1830-32. The text consists (pp. 1-168) of a descriptive explanation of the plates, followed by a systematic survey (pp. I-XLIII) of 110 species of humming-birds. This section contains a special title-page 'Index général et synoptique des oiseaux du genre Trochilus, par R.P.Lesson..." (Anker 294). The excellent plates are by Prêtre and Bévalet, the best French natural history artists of the period. René Primevère Lesson (1794-1849) was a naturalist and explorer. He was naturalist on the 'Coquille' commanded by Duperrey with Dumont d'Urville second in command. "Lesson occupied a prominent place among French naturalist-voyagers of the period... his most important contributions were zoology. Particularly significant was his work in ornithology, especially his writings on hummingbirds and birds of paradise" (DSB).//Nissen IVB, 549; Anker 294.

Early American school atlas that depicts Texas as part of Mexico, California as an "unexplored region", Argentina as the United Provinces, Columbia as including Venezuela, Ethiopia as encompassing much of lower (Southern) Africa, and many other boundary and national curiosities. Maps are dated 1828 to 1830. Contents, listed on the front cover, include maps of the World, North America, the United States, New England, the Middle and Southern States, Ohio and Indiana, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa as well as two charts. 4to, 11.5 x 9.25 inches, 29.5 x 23.5 cm, with printing on one side of each leaf. Wraps, made of card stock, have considerable amount of soiling and a few edge chips, now nicely repaired (filled in) and stabilized. Spine reinforced with sympathetic yellow cloth. Maps have soiling as well, albeit much might be deemed simply age toning. Maps and charts are nonetheless still clearly legible, without loss, and handsome. Binding resewn and thus stable, making somewhat trivial a closed tear and crease affecting some leaves on the lower part by spine.
