        Bonelli’s Eagle

      1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) An illustration from The Birds of Europe London, 1832-1837 Original hand-colored lithograph 32 1/2" x 26" framed 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. Gould's 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 Elizabeth and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife 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 European birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

        A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL

      1832 - ADAMS, Hannah [and Mrs. Hannah F. Lee]. A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL NOTICES BY A FRIEND. Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1832. 110 pp. 12mo., green cloth with paper spine label. Fair to good, rear joint starting, spine label scraped with only remnants legible. Light pale spotting to cloth. Interior foxed, hinges starting. Rear flyleaf has small chip and small closed tear. Lovely lithograph frontispiece portrait, slight soil to page edges, not affecting image. Hannah Adams (1775-1831), though she thought herself timid and unworldly, was the first American woman to support herself as an author. Her first book, An Alphabetical Compendium of Various Sects (1784), went through several editions; later editions are titled A View of Religions. She was regarded by her contemporaries as an able and industrious author; yet she herself made only modest claims for her achievement. Her memoir, published posthumously, is the chief source of information about her; and, with characteristic modesty, it was written partly to raise money for her ailing younger sister. (N.A.W.)

        Memoria histórica sobre las operaciones e incidencias de la División Libertadora, a las órdenes del Gen. D. Juan Antonio Alvarez de Arenales en su segúnda campaña a la sierra del Perú, en 1821.

      Buenos Aires, Imprenta de la Gazeta Mercantil, 1832. - 8vo. xv + 247 + [1 blank]p + [5]f including index and errata leaf. With lithographed portrait, 1 folding plan with woodcut vignette surrounded by ornamental border, 1 lithographed battle plan & 1 folding lithographed map. Contemporary half roan, spine decorated in gilt; worn. An evaluation of the second Peruvian campaign of 1821 successfully led by Brigadier Juan Antonio Alvarez de Arenales (1770-1830), a veteran professional soldier turned inspiring guerillero leader, whom General San Martín had sent into the mountains with two battalions to stir up revolt against the Spaniards. Arenales’ small force gained adherents from the royalists, won over cities, and became known as the ‘División Libertadora’. This study by Colonel José Arenales, the brigadier’s son, is based on original documents, some of which are here first published in part II (‘appendix’) on pp145-247. The folding plan contains statistics on the military strength of the Army of Liberation of Peru under General San Martín during the first campaign in 1820. The fine portrait of Brigadier Arenales and the campaign map and plan in lithography are by Bacle & Co, who pioneered the process in Buenos Aires. Added at the end are the contents of the author’s letter to Juan Manuel de Rosas, governor of Buenos Aires, to whom he presents the flag of his father’s division together with a copy of this book, and the dictator’s letter of thanks. Some light toning, light worming in inner blank margins at beginning and end, otherwise a good copy from the author’s library with some textual corrections in ink and with his book stamp in blank margin of title and first page of introduction.

        Experimental researches in electricity. Bound extracts

      1832-56, London 1832 - Faraday, Michael (1791-1867). Experimental researches in electricity. 30 series of papers, plus supplement to the 11th series, extracted from Philosophical Transactions. 4to. 18 plates. [London, 1832-56]. 285 x 224 mm. Extracts bound in 1 vol., modern morocco gilt. Fine set.First Editions. An extremely rare, fine complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. It was through his "Experimental researches" that Faraday announced his major findings relating to electricity and magnetism, the most important of which was his discovery of the means of generating electricity from electro-magnetic induction-the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, and the foundation of the modern use of electricity. The "Experimental researches" also contain Faraday's demonstration of the identity of all forms of electricity, his discovery of the laws of electrolysis, his announcement of the fundamental relations between light and magnetism, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and his last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of the modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestation of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet. Our set includes Faraday's 30th and final series of the "Experimental researches," published in 1856 and not included in the book-form edition (1839-55) or in the collected papers, like ours, cited as no. 64 in Dibner's Heralds of Science; this 30th series contains Faraday's papers on "Constancy of differential magnecrystallic force in different media" (no. 38), "Action of heat on magnecrystals" (no. 39), and "Effect of heat upon the absolute magnetic force of bodies" (no. 40).

        A Description of the Genus Pinus, with directions relative to the cultivation, and remarks on the uses of the several species: also descriptions of many other new species of the family Coniferæ

      Messrs. Weddell, London 1832 - Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco over contemporary green/grey paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second, third and fourth compartments, gilt Provenance: Edward Duke (armorial bookplate); William Russell Grace (1832-1904, armorial bookplate) A fine copy of the first octavo edition of Lambert's great work on the pine trees of the world. The earliest edition of Lambert's important monograph was published in two large folio volumes between 1803 and 1824. It then appeared in various formats with varying numbers of plates, including the present octavo edition, until the Bohn folio issue of 1842. Lowndes notes that the fine plates in the octavo edition are made up from "sections of some of the plates" from the larger folio work and new versions of other plates. The fine plates retain much of the power of their larger folio cousins. Stafleu tacitly agrees with Great Flower Books assessment of this book as one of the most bibliographically complex of all natural history works when he notes that "All copies show differences": this copy in addition to having three or four more plates than the accepted norm, is also (like the de Belder copy) without the appendix leaves which are found at the end of some copies. Irish-born William Russell Grace, co-founder of W.R Grace and Co., was an American success story who rose from relative poverty to be one of the richest men in the country. He was also a noted philanthropist and served two terms as Mayor of New York.

"Inspired by the aid provided to the Greek revolutionaries by Russia in 1828, Stourdza sought to influence developments on his own. He published his 'Enchiridion or Manual of Orthodox Christians' in Greek and then in Romanian" (cf. F. Heyer, Die orientalische Frage im kirchlichen Lebenskreis [Wiesbaden 1991], 232).

        Arctic Tern. Sterna Arctica

      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. The Arctic Tern has a circumpolar distribution, breeding colonially in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and North America. The Arctic Tern is famous for its migration, traveling about 24,000 miles each year, the longest regular migration by any known animal. Performing almost all of its tasks in the air, the arctic tern lands only once every one to three years to nest; then take to the sky for another long southern migration. The Arctic Tern is among the taxa to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. Parties to the Agreement are required to engage in a wide range of conservation actions which are described in a detailed action plan. 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.

        History Of The War In The Peninsula And In The South Of France, From The Year 1807 To The Year 1814

      London: Thomas & William Boone, 1832-40. - 6 Volumes. 8vo. with half-titles in Vols. I-II. 55 engraved plates incl. 1 map, 1 diagram & 53 of battle plans. later half chagrin, gilt backs (foxing to plates & neighbouring leaves). Second Edition of Vols. I-III and First Editions of Vols. IV-VI of this "classic of the English language." (DNB) "It is commended to the general reader no less by an impartial admiration for the heroes on both sides than by the spontaneity of its style. Its accuracy was the more firmly established by the inevitable attacks of actors in the scenes described, who thought the parts they had played undervalued." (Ibid.) "As a military historian Sir William Napier is incomparably superior to any other English writer [He] always wrote as if he was burning with an inextinguishable desire to express what he was feeling, which gives his style a peculiar spontaneity, and yet he rewrote the first volume of his History no less than six times. His descriptions of sieges and of battles are admirable by themselves, and his analyses of the peculiarly intricate Spanish intrigues are even more remarkable, while the descriptions and analyses are both lit up by flashes of political wisdom and military insight. It is to be noted that he displays the spirit of the partisan, even when most impartial, and defends his opinions, even when most undoubtedly true, as if he were arguing some controverted question The portraits of Sir John Moore and Colonel M’Leod, and the last paragraphs descriptive of the storming of Badajoz, may be taken as examples of his great natural eloquence."

        The Following Notices Of The Rideau Canal, In which is made clear, the exalted worth of the Superintendant of that stupendous work, Colonel By, Of The Royal Engineers

      Kingston: Printed At The Patriot Office, January, 1832. - 8vo. pp. 22, [blank leaf]. with half-title. folding lithographed plate. new half calf (short marginal tear in plate repaired, dampstain to lower portion of leaves, hint of foxing). First Edition. Rare. A defence of Colonel John By against his detractors, particularly those who were critical of his expenditures, by ‘A Friend to Justice and Merit’. The original estimate for the canal had been £169,000 in 1825 but by 1832 By had increased that figure to £474,000 when his recommendation for larger locks was accepted and some defence works were added. The final cost was actually about £800,000. Of special note here is the folding lithographed plate showing a side sectional view of the truss bridge over the Chaudière Falls of the Ottawa River, designed and executed by Colonel By. The truss bridge was the last link in a chain of bridges built across the Ottawa River in order to provide access to the forge and sawmill at Hull on the Quebec side of the river before construction on the Rideau Canal began. It was completed in 1828 and served its purpose, eventually collapsing in 1836. This is one of the earliest lithographed views to be printed in Upper Canada. Based on a sketch by John Burrows, a civil engineer who was clerk of works on the canal, the print was lithographed by Samuel Oliver Tazewell, Upper Canada`s first lithographer, who was to move to York in 1832. This is probably the earlier of two versions of the lithograph, the other with title and `Burrows Del.` line (see Allodi). Casey I 1363. Fleming 612. TPL 1739. Allodi, Printmaking in Canada, 39.

Led by John C. Calhoun, Jackson?s vice president at the time, the nullifiers felt that the tariff acts of 1828 and 183

        Spectacle Warbler - Curruca conspicillata

      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.

        Mémoire Sur les principe des Forces vives dans les Mouvemens relatifs de Machines

      Paris: l'Imprimerie Royale, 1832. First edition. In: Mémoires présentés par divers savans a 'Académie Royale des Sciences de l'Institut de France, Vol. 3: pp.573-607. The complete volume offered [VIII,625,(1:blank) pp. and 7 plates - none of which accompany the Coriolis paper] in a nice contemporary half calf. A little scattered brown spotting throughout. In all a very good copy. Coriolis' highly important memoir on acceleration in composite motions. Coriolis expressed the principle of "force vive" (kinetic energy) as the transmission of work. Wishing to evalutate the work done by fluids in hydraulic machines and steam engines, he found simple expressions that apply to the fixed framework of the machine with respect to which the moving parts are in motion. "To the extent that consideration of relative motion in machines was unavoidable either to eliminate or to simplify the work of linking forces, theory has necessarily to deal with the question of inertial forces when the system of reference is changed" (DSB).
