        Trichoglossus Rubritorquis. Scarlet-collared Parrakeet

      London 1832 - Edward Lear (1812-1888) is fondly remembered for his books of nonsense and for popularizing the limerick, but he was also a prolific watercolorist, who as a young man earned his livelihood and achieved recognition as an illustrator of birds and animals. Born in the north London suburb of Holloway on 12 May 1812, he was the youngest of twenty-one children born to Jeremiah and Ann Lear. His childhood was one of outward prosperity but in 1825, his father, a stockbroker, was ruined by a financial crisis brought on by unfortunate speculation, and consigned to the debtor's prison. At the age of fifteen the young and somewhat sickly Edward had to start earning his own living drawing and assisting printsellers. In 1830, at the age of 18, Lear obtained permission to work as a draughtsman at the Zoological Society gardens, located at Regent’s Park. The following year he moved with his sister, Ann, to nearby lodgings in Albany Street, in order to be close to his work and during the course of the next two years devoted his time to recording the different members of the parrot family. He was encouraged in this task by N. A. Vigors, John Gould and Lord Stanley and between 1830 and 1832 “Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots” was published in parts. Lear’s publication was innovative in several significant ways. Unlike previous bird artists, he drew whenever possible from life rather than stuffed specimens, thus combining anatomical accuracy and subtlety of detail with the pose and expression of the living, moving bird. Lear also employed the relatively new medium of lithography which, by dispensing with the need for professional engravers, allowed him to retain complete artistic control over all stages of his work. This expertly hand-colored lithograph, Trichoglossus Rubritorquis. Scarlet-collared Parrakeet, measures 21" x 14.5" and is in good condition with light foxing and staining with lightly torn left edge. This parakeet is vibrantly colored and detailed, against the pencil-sketch-like background, making it the focal piece of this lithograph. The head and neck are colored in a deep blue, with an orange beak, throat and chest and brilliant green wings and legs. Precise lines define and detail each feather and characteristic of this magnificent bird.

        Little Auk - Alca alle

      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. 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.

        Arctic Oil Works. San Francisco, Cal.

      San Francisco - Edward Bosqui (1832 -1917) “Arctic Oil Works. San Francisco, Cal.” San Francisco, Bosqui Eng. & Print Co. Hand-colored lithograph 35” x 43” framed San Francisco was the biggest whaling port in the world during the late 19th century. This view depicts the Arctic Oil Works plant in the Potrero Hill waterfront area (Illinois and 16th St.) of San Francisco. The Artic Oils Works port complex and California Street offices were built and established in 1884. Boats traveling from the Arctic would transport whale and seal oils to the Arctic Oil Works refining plant in San Francisco to make soap and other products derived from whale oil. They also processed baleen (whales teeth) by drying it, then cutting it into stays for corsets, umbrellas and buggy whips. Their huge tanks for storing whale oil and connection to the railroad were state-of-the-art in 1884. The site was eventually replaced by Union Oil's petroleum depot by the turn of the 1900s. Edward Bosqui was born in Montreal, Canada on July 23, 1832. Bosqui came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush era in 1850 and found employment with a banking firm. In 1863 he established the Bosqui Engraving & Printing Company which produced lithographs and bookbinding. A friend of many of the local artists, Bosqui was one of the organizers of the San Francisco Art Association (1871) and the Bohemian Club (1872). His Marin County home burned in 1897, taking with it his large collection of paintings by local artists as well as his own, and in 1906, the fires following the great earthquake destroyed his printing firm. He was inactive in business until his death on Dec. 8, 1917 at his home in San Francisco.

        Four Autograph Signed Letters to William Wetmore from His Business Partners Regarding Market Conditions and Wetmore's Business Affairs in South America and New York].

      - Valparaiso, Cadiz and New York, 1832-1837. Four autograph signed letters, all Quartos (ca. 27x20 cm or slightly smaller). In all 10 pp. of text. Brown ink on folded, all addressed, stamped and docketed on the last blank pages. Fold marks, minor holes on three letters after opening, in one case slightly affecting the text, otherwise a very good collection. Four interesting letters addressed to noted American merchant William Shepard Wetmore, concerning his business dealings and market conditions in South America and New York. Two letters are written by his business partners in Chile "Alsop and Co" (Valparaiso, 25 April and 29 November 1832); one - by a Cadiz merchant A. Burton "on the instruction of Mr. John Cryder," another partner of Wetmore (12 February 1833), and one - by a New York merchant Thomas P. Bucklin. The letters discuss various matters of Wetmore's trade, including arrival and departure of ships with his cargo, market fluctuations, business climate, quarantines, latest deals etc. The correspondents relate to a number of goods and articles which Wetmore traded with, including silk, copper, mercury (in other letters - quicksilver); the market conditions are reported about flour, sugars, various textiles (shirtings, cotton, silk etc.), tea, soap, gun powder, rice and others. Overall a nice collection of informative business letters regarding the dealings of an important American merchant. William Shepard Wetmore entered the mercantile business at the age of 14, as an employee of Edward Carrington & Co. of Providence, Rhode Island. In the 1820s he conducted active trade with the United States, England and South America, in partnership with Valparaiso import merchant Richard Alsop. In 1825 they were joined by Philadelphia native John Cryder. Four years later Wetmore retired and returned to the United States with a large fortune. In 1833-1839 he ran a successful business in Canton, as Wetmore & Co., trading in Chinese tea, silk, opium and other goods. His partners were Samuel Archer and John Cryder. In the 1840s Wetmore worked in New Your, having established a commission merchant firm of Wetmore, Cryder & Co. He retired in 1847 and permanently lived in his famous mansion Chateau-sur-Mer, the first of the Gilded Age mansions in Newport, Rhode Island.

        Botanical Watercolor for Tropical, Chiefly South American Plants

      1832 - Charles Empson Tropical, Chiefly South American Plants c. 1832 Original watercolors on paper Paper size: 15 1/2” x 10 1/4” Framed size: 26 1/2” x 20 1/2” Only recently discovered, Charles Empson’s original drawings of the exotic plants of South America introduce an artist of superb technique and achievement previously known only through the narratives of his travel in South America. Pursuing his fascination with the South American continent, Empson left England in 1830 to fulfill his “finely-cherished wish” to see for himself the curiosities and beauties of South America. His peregrinations took him from Cienega on the northern coast of Colombia through the central and eastern cordilleras of the Andes to Honda in the south, via the river Magdalena, and east into Venezuela. His recollections of the trip are preserved in his Narratives of South America, published in London in 1836. This volume also contains several engravings made from Empson’s notes and sketches and an appendix in which Epson listed many of the plants that excited his interest. Some of these are preserved in this sketchbook. Almost the entire collection of notes and sketches Empson made while in South America was destroyed in a shipwreck, depriving Empson of most of the specimens and data he collected under the title Tropical, Chiefly South American Plants. This strikingly beautiful series of original watercolors are valuable, therefore, for both their artistic merit and their historical importance. Unusual for the quality of the drawing and their pristine state of preservation, Empson’s plants and flowers seem to glisten under the touch of the tropical sun. Unlike the botanical drawings of most of his contemporaries, Empson’s sketches are not at all stylized. His Morning Glories entwine a dry twig; the tendrils of the Passion Flower reach out to find something to clutch. Like the great French botanical artist Redoute, Empson captures the play of light across shiny leaves, the color changes from a crease of a turning in a leaf. Technically and aesthetically masterful, these watercolors by Charles Empson must be ranked among the most important nineteenth century botanical drawings ever discovered.

        Andrew Jackson Denouncing South Carolina's Nullification Attempt

      New York 1832 - Broadside. Proclamation, By Andrew Jackson, President of the United States. New York: Marsh & Harrison, [1832]. Large broadside on silk, text in 5 columns, surrounded by an ornamental border. 19 x 26 in. 1p. Excerpt"Whereas, a Convention assembled in the State of South Carolina, have passed an Ordnance.I consider then the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution unauthorized by it's spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed." Historical BackgroundThe Nullification crisis was a foreshadowing of the sectional divisions that ultimately brought on Civil War. Opposition to protective tariffs enacted by Congress in 1832 grew to such intensity, particularly in the South, that in November 1832, South Carolina adopted a Nullification Ordinance proclaiming the Federal tariffs void in that state as of February 1, 1833.Jackson's Proclamation, drafted by Secretary of State Edward Livingston but infused with the president's Federalist principles and unyielding resolve, denounced South Carolina's ordnance as treasonous, unconstitutional, and "incompatible with the existence of the Union."While Congress granted Jackson emergency powers to employ the Army and Navy if necessary, the crisis was narrowly averted. Before the Ordinance of Nullification went into effect, Congress enacted a Compromise Tariff in 1833 that was sponsored by Clay and acceptable to both Jackson and the South. South Carolina promptly rescinded the Ordinance of Nullification, but afterwards, Calhoun and others argued that their actions had been justified and were in accordance with the principles of the Constitution.The first broadsides of this Proclamation were printed on paper in Washington and followed by several additional printings on silk in such cities as New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. ConditionFraying and some loss to margins. Minor tears and abrasion to the text area.

        Klosterheim: or, The Masque

      Edinburgh, William Blackwood, and T. Cadell, London,, 1832. By The English Opium-Eater. Octavo. Uncut in publisher's green diagonal-grain cloth-backed boards, printed paper spine label. Housed in a pale blue cloth solander case and chemise, spine lettered gilt. With half-title, fly-title immediately preceding text and final advert leaf. Ownership inscription dated 1894 on half-title. Rubbed, spine skilfully restored at head and tail, front free endpaper renewed, spine-label worn and chipped, title verso soiled, still a very good copy. First edition of De Quincey's only original novel, a Gothic romance set in Swabia during the Thirty Years' War. A precursor of the 20th-century comic book superhero, De Quincey's masked hero lives secretly in the city, emerging in the nick of time to perform incredible deeds on behalf of the oppressed. (As De Quincey was by now constantly in hiding from debt-collectors, emerging only to deliver his manuscripts to publishers, some degree of self-identification seems likely.) Coleridge judged that "in purity of style and idiom it reaches an excellence to which Sir Walter Scott seems never to have aspired." Klosterheim was reprinted in 1898 as The Mystery of the Masque.

        Audouin's Gull. Larus audouinii

      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” accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. Gulls are seafaring birds that are found across all the oceans of the world and many inland waters. Many species of gull have learned to co-exist successfully with man and have thrived in human habitats, they are resourceful and highly-intelligent birds, demonstrating complex methods of communication and a highly-developed social structure. The audouin's gull is only found in the Mediterranean and the western coast of Saharan Africa. In the late 1960s, this was one of the World's rarest gulls, with a population of only 1,000 pairs. It has established new colonies, but remains rare with a population of about 10,000 pairs. 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.
