        Iceland Gull. Larus icelandicus, (Edmonston)

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

        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.

      I. Lewent 1832-1834, Berlin - Six octavo volumes bound in three quarter leather over paper covered boards. Each volume has ties on fore edge of front and rear boards. Vol. 1: "Seder Zeraim" 196 pp. Vol. 2: "Seder Moed" 232 pp. Vol. 3: "Seder Nashim" 212 pp. Vol. 4: "Seder Nezikin" 268 pp. Vol. 5: "Seder Kodshim" 264 pp. Vol. 6: "Seder Tehorot" 212 pp. Book has the original Hebrew of the Mishnah and the translation into Judeo-German in double columns atop the commentary "Melo Kaf Nahat", which is in Hebrew, Rashi Script. The author of the commentary was a renowned talmudic scholar and author who lived in the first half of the eighteenth century. This groundbreaking commentary was considered a "funnel of sorts" for previous rabbinic and Medieval commentaries on the Mishnah, for it collected explanations from Rashi, Maimonides, Bertinoro, and Tosafot Yom-Tov. It also drew heavily upon Isaac ibn Gabbai's commentary. This work was originally in Amsterdam in the year of 1732. This is the later reprint from Berlin, printed between the years 1832-1834. Age wear and scuffing to leather, some Hebrew script handwriting on front endpapers, but books are in overall good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Globe Terrestre Dresse par Fx. Delamrche, Succr. de R. De Vaugondy 1832.

      Paris 1832 - 9 ½ inches (24 cm.) diameter; 21 inches (53 cm.) total height. Single pedestal globe with horizon ring, armature & meridian all of wood, wear and staining on meridian at point where fits into stand, some chipping at extremities, else fine; globe with vibrant original color and clear, sharp patina; some abrasion & losses, mostly in lower and upper extremities; overall very good plus condition. An attractive, very capably executed table or desk globe, in the distinctive style of the Delamarche firm, ¿the most successful French entrepreneur[s] in maps and globes¿ (Dekker/ van der Krogt). This was an original work by the son, Felix, who succeeded his father in the management of the firm in 1817. The globe is geographically up-to-date, notably in the South Pacific and Alaska, with information from then recent Russian voyages, such as Krustenstern¿s. Related to this, at the time the globe appeared and reflected on it, Europeans were beginning to differentiate between various regions of the Pacific. These were based on a better understanding of cultural and other differences between the peoples of various areas encountered on these recent voyages. For example, in 1831 the French explorer Dumont d¿Urville proposed the use of the terms ¿Micronesia¿ and ¿Melanesia¿ for various parts of the Pacific as distinguished from Polynesia. Printed dashed lines on this globe, labeled ¿Division Oceanique,¿ roughly approximate the three eventually accepted divisions of what is referred to as the South Pacific, though the regions are not named on the globe. Delamarche also clearly identifies on the globe the more traditional divisions of the Pacific between ¿Grand Ocean Boreal,¿ ¿Grand Ocean Equinoxial,¿ and ¿Grand Ocean Austral.¿ The Delamarche firm was the first to successfully reach a fairly sizable, general market of globe buyers. It accomplished this by reducing the cost of constructing globe stands and other parts, while maintaining a high level of quality in the maps of their globes, which are cleanly and attractively engraved. Traditional brass meridians were replaced by wooden ones, and the horizon rings and armatures supporting the rings were greatly simplified and made from either wood or stiff board. Also, the firm generally used simpler, single-pedestal stands rather than four-legged designs. Yet, as this well-preserved example demonstrates, Delamarche¿s design and materials proved to be very durable. Charles-Francois Delamarche (1740-1817), the founder of the family firm, was the successor of the great map and globemaking family, the Robert De Vaugondys, as is cited in the title of this globe. Delamarche, in fact, seemed to have cornered the globe market in France by also incorporating the stocks of Jean Fortin and Jean Lattre. Delamarche¿s son, Felix took over the firm upon his father¿s death and managed it until 1848, when Gosselin succeeded him. The firm continued well into the latter 19th century under yet another Delamarche descendent. Dekker/ Van der Krogt, Globes from the Western World, pp. 63, 74; Dekker, E. Globes at Greenwich, pp. 321-25; Suarez, T. Early Mapping of the Pacific, p. 25.
