        Quail - Coturnix dactylisonans

      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.

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.

        Pompeiana. The Topography, Edifices and Ornaments of Pompeii, the Result of Excavations Since 1819

      ONT> 1832 - Following the excavations of Pompeii since 1819 this is ahistory of the antiquities of Pompeii, detailing the topography, edifices and ornamentscompiled by Sir William Gell. Illustrated with numerousengraved plates, two hand colouredplates to volume one,vignettes, some tipped in,and plans. In two volumes complete. The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompeii. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 4 to 6mof ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Pompeii was lost for nearly 1700 years before its rediscovery in 1748. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. Sir William Gell (1777 - 1836) was an English classical archaeologist and illustrator. His numerous drawings of classical ruins and localities, executed with great detail and exactness, are preserved in the British Museum. Gell was a thorough dilettante, fond of society and possessed of little real scholarship. Nonetheless his topographical works became recognised text-books at a time when Greece and even Italy were but superficially known to English travellers. His best-known work is Pompeiana; the Topography, Edifices and, Ornaments of Pompeii, published between 1817 and 1832. It was followed in 1834 by the Topography of Rome and its Vicinity. He also wrote Topography of Troy and its Vicinity; Geography and Antiquities of Ithaca; Itinerary of Greece, with a Commentary on Pausanias and Strabo; and Itinerary of the Morea. Although these works have been superseded by later publications, they continue to provide valuable information for the study of classical topography. He is, together with his friends Edward Dodwell and Keppel Richard Craven, by some modern scholars seen as the founder of the study of the historical topography of the hinterland of Rome. His works and notebooks proved very valuable for the topographical studies done by Thomas Ashby at the beginning of the 20th century. Condition: Handsomely rebound inquarter cloth bindings with paper covered boards. Externally, in a lovely condition with only minor shelfwear and very slight marks to boards. Internally, volume one is firmly bound, volume two, generally firmly bound although strained in one place. Bright but with slight foxing and tidemarks to plates.

        Naval Evolutions; A Memoir by…

      London: Thomas and William Boone, , 1832. containing a Review and Refutation of the Principal Essays and Arguments advocating Mr. Clerk's Claims in relation to the Manoeuvre of the 12th of April, 1782; and vindicating, by Tactical Demonstration, and Numerous Authentic Documents, the Professional Skill of the British Officers chiefly on that Memorable Occasion. Octavo. Original dark green moiré cloth, paper label to the upper board, yellow surface-paper endpapers. 14 diagrammatic plates, and one double-sided, folding facsimile letter. A little rubbed and soiled, mild toning, scattered very light foxing, a very good copy. First edition. The third son of Vice-Admiral Sir Charles Douglas, Douglas was originally intended for the Navy, but after his father's death, his guardians, without consultation, obtained a place for him at the Royal Military Academy. He was subsequently superintendent of the senior department at Sandhurst, and served with distinction as assistant quartermaster-general in Spain, and on the disastrous Walcheren Expedition. In later life he gravitated toward naval matters, his Treatise on Naval Gunnery (1820) was the basis for training until the late 1840s; "Douglas's book was more than a mere artillery training manual; it encompassed key elements of national strategy, notably the development of new weapons and tactics for the bombardment of foreign naval bases… He considered that mortars, and later Armstrong breech-loading cannon, enabled naval forces to lay off at long range and destroy naval bases. In the Crimean War his ideas were applied at Sveaborg in August 1855 with devastating results." (ODNB) The present work, which was "suggested by a conversation with his old friend and school companion Sir Walter Scott," is a defence of his father's claim to be the originator if the manoeuvre of "the breaking of the line." Douglas first published an article in the Quarterly Review in 1829 questioning the claims of John Clerk of Eldin, which initiated a furious controversy with Clerk's supporters, despite the fact that Clerk, who had died in 1812, had "maintained in 1804 that his ideas were not fully developed at the time of the battle of the Saints, and that his thinking had not finally come together until the late 1790s, when he published details of the manoeuvre.

        Portrait miniature of Fanny Elssler, signed "Ender Joh." at bottom left.

      Vienna, c. 1832. - Watercolor in original red satin frame; oval picture space set in gold. 240:200 mm. Hitherto unknown portrait miniature of the young dancer, painted by the most highly sought-after portraitist of the Viennese Biedermeier period (cf. AKL XXXIII, 531), and probably produced shortly after 1830 - at the time of Fanny's first great success in Vienna and before the birth of her second illegitimate child, to be born in London in 1832. - The half-length portrait shows Fanny Elssler in a strapless white dress with lace trimmings and wide sleeves; an ermine is draped about her neck; her right hand rests upon a pedestal, in her left she holds three roses. Apart from an eye-catching brooch and a pearl necklace, she also wears a white camellia in her hair. - It had been Elssler's later lover Friedrich Gentz (1764-1832) who had sent her four white camellias from his greenhouse on the morning of December 26, 1829 - and on that very evening she was seen wearing one of them in her hair. Her fondness for these precious flowers was to make her known as "la dame aux camélias" (cf. L. Denk, Fanny Elssler. Tänzerin eines Jahrhunderts. Vienna & Munich, 1984, p. 130f.). The political writer Gentz was considered Austria's most important diplomat; as First Secretary, he had led the negotiations at the Vienna Congress. After his death, his close associate Metternich is said to have commented on Gentz's relationship with Fanny Elssler: "Romantic love quickly wears away old men's wits and hastens their end" (cf. Denk, p. 124). - Gentz, who had furnished Elssler's apartment on the Vienna Seilerstätte and maintained it until his death, also commissioned a portrait by Carl Agricola, drawn in the summer of 1830 for the price of 100 fl. and depicting his lady-love in a delicate white dress with low puff sleeves (cf. Denk, p. 150 and fig. 5: "formerly property of Elisabeth Schumann, destroyed during WWI Il", according to Ivor Guest, F. Elssler. Middletown, 1970, p. 17). Although it is known that Elssler sat for Agricola, Waldmüller, Daffinger, and Franz Russ, there is no mention in the relevant literature that J. N. Ender ever painted her, and the present portrait was formerly entirely undocumented. - From the possession of the heirs of Kathi Prinster, Fanny's long-time confidant and companion, to whom the great dancer had bequeathed her "entire effects, including jewels, silver, furniture, wardrobe, shawls, furs, china, glass, etc." (cf. F. Elssler: "Mein letzter Wille" [1884], in: Denk, p. 424f.) from the Seilerstätte apartment they had shared until her death.

Steiner (1840-1906), a Georgia physician, planter, folklorist, and amateur archaeologist, whose excavation of the Etowah mounds near Macon, Georgia, form the core of the largest collection of artifacts from a single individual to have been donated to the Smithsonian ; with his bookplate ; "During the latter half of the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century, Roland collected a massive quantity of prehistoric artifacts from areas throughout Georgia; including Mound C at the Etowah Mound site near Cartersville, Georgia and sites in Burke, Columbia, Floyd, Hancock, and several other counties. He became a member of the Georgia Historical Society on July 7, 1886, the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1899 and the Society of American Folklore in the same year. In his lifetime, Roland collected more than 100,000 Native American relics from Georgia and South Carolina. Throughout the 1890s and early part of the 1910s, Steiner sent approximately 78,000 artifacts including copper axes, copper headdresses, conch shell cups and gorgets, pearl beads, pottery vessels, pottery statuettes, and other artifacts made of polished and chipped stone to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. His private collection at the Smithsonian is the largest private collection in the museum. Steiner also has collection of artifacts located at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, New York and the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois." ; "Dr. Steiner has been, for about three years, at intervals, making deposits of aboriginal implements and objects in the National Museum. His collection amounts now to approximately 75,000 objects. They have been gathered by him in eastern Georgia, principally in Columbia and Burke Counties, though there is a very important collection made by himself from the Etowah Mounds in Bartow County.Not the least inconsiderable portion of Dr. Steiner's collection, nor that of least value, is the result of his own excavation at the Etowah Mounds or, as they have been known, the Tumlin Mounds on the plantation of Col. Tumlin, Etowah Creek, Bartow County. These are probably the most renowned mounds of which we know, and have produced the rarest and most curious objects. It appears to me of the highest necessity that we should retain the objects from this mound that belong to Dr. Steiner, to the end that they may supplement the collection of Prof. Thomas. I would consider it almost an irreparable loss, one not to be calculated in dollars and cents, if the objects belonging to Dr. Steiner should be taken away and the collection from the Etowah Mound broken up. The purchase of this collection from Dr. Steiner will materially facilitate the complete excavation of the Etowah Mounds and insure to the Museum the possession of their riches in its entirety."--Thomas Wilson, Curator, Division of Prehistoric Anthropology, January 19, 1898. ; contributors included Nicasio Juan Gallego (1777-1853), Francisco Maria Raynouard, Taver John Nicols, Marie-Charles-Joseph Pougens (1755-1833), Jacob Pontusson De la Gardie, Robert Southey (1774-1843), Guy Arnault, Felix Torres Amat (1772-1857), Joseph del Castillo, Jose Maria Zuaznavar y Fracia, Alberto Rodríguez de Lista y Aragón (1775-1848), Romanillos Benito Ortega, Manuel López Cepero y Ardila (1778-1858), and others ; G, scarce [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Robin Hood: a Collection of all the Ancient Poems, Songs, and Ballads, now extant relative to that celebrated English Outlaw. To which are prefixed Historical Anecdotes of his Life

      William Pickering, London 1832 - First Pickering Edition (second edition overall; first published 1795), complete in two volumes. 8vo: viii, [2], [v]-cxxxv, [1],148; vi,261,[1]pp, with numerous woodcut illustrations (each tale with head- and tail-piece) by John and Thomas Bewick. Original brown ribbed cloth, covers decorated in blind with elaborate arabesques; spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, pale lemon end papers. Beautifully rebacked with original cloth spines laid down, else a Fine set, bindings firm and gilt bright, pages pristine (and largely unopened) without a trace of foxing, illustrations crisp. Tattersfield 2.543B. Menzies 1704. Lowndes 2098. Not in Roscoe. Originally published by Ritson,"who continued from time to time to make additions to his own copy, from which the present edition has been carefully printed. The original engravings, by the celebrated Bewick, have again been used; and from the improved art of wood-cut-printing, will be found superior in clearness and beauty to the first impression." (from the Advertisement). The editor of this edition, according to Lowndes, was Ritson's nephew, who added in the appendix the Tale of Robin Hood and the Monk, of which Ritson was unaware. Lowndes also concurs that the "woodcuts are better struck off and clearer." Joseph Ritson was an English antiquarian notorious for vicious and blistering criticisms of his literary contemporaries, including Thomas Warton (History of English Poetry) and, most famously, Samuel Johnson (the edition of Shakespeare produced with George Steevens in 1783 particularly irked Ritson). But the work upon which Ritson's fame rests—"his single greatest achievement"— is this exhaustive Robin Hood. "For many years he had attempted to collect all the ‘historical or poetical remains’ concerning Robin Hood, and his research was so thorough that only a handful of ‘remains’ of any significance have subsequently been discovered."

        Fac Simile of an Indian Painting

      Paris 1832 - Karl Bodmer; From Travels in the Interior of North America; Paris, 1832-1843 Hand-colored aquatint engravings; paper size approximately 17 1/2” x 22 1/2”; 35” x 28 1/2” framed Karl Bodmer was a little-known Swiss painter when he was chosen by Prince Maximilian of Prussia to accompany his voyage to America, in order to document in pictorial terms the expedition. With the rest of Maximilian’s company, the two traveled among the Plains Indians from 1832 to 1834, a time when the Plains and the Rockies were still virtually unknown. They arrived in the West before acculturation had begun to change the lives of the Indians, and Bodmer, who was a protegé of the great naturalist von Humbolt, brought a trained ethnologist’s eye to the task. The Bodmer/Maximilian collaboration produced a record of their expedition that is incontestably the finest early graphic study of the Plains tribes. Maximilian and Bodmer journeyed from St. Louis up the Missouri River on the American Fur Company steamboat “Yellowstone,” stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, “Assiniboin,” to Fort Union, where they met the Crees and Assiniboins. The expedition spent its first winter at Fort Clark, where the Mandans in particular excited Bodmer’s attention, although he was also to draw the Minatarri and Crow peoples. The explorers continued by keelboat to Fort Mackenzie, which proved to be the westernmost point of their journey. After living among and studying the Blackfeet for several weeks, Maximilian decided that it was too dangerous to continue, so the travelers returned southward, reaching St. Louis in May 1834. After the conclusion of the journey, Bodmer spent four years in Paris supervising the production of the aquatints made from his drawings. These prints rank with the finest Western art in any medium, and they are the most complete record of the Plains Indians before the epidemics of the mid-19th century had decimated their numbers, and before the white man’s expansion had taken their lands. In contrast to other artist-explorers of the 19th century, such as George Catlin, Bodmer was well-trained in the classic European tradition. The work that he did in America is considered to be the high point of a distinguished career. Perhaps more significant, the plates made from Bodmer's sketches were the first truly accurate images of the Plains Indians to reach the general public. Because the 1837 smallpox epidemic killed more than half the Blackfeet and almost all the Mandans, Bodmer’s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian’s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and beautiful records of the landscape of the American West as it appeared when Bodmer saw it, just before westward expansion took hold and began the indelible transformation of the frontier.

        I have a Notion that you should always "Look before you leap"

      London 1832 - Henry Alken (1785-1851) Notions series London: 1832 Hand-colored aquatint engraving 16 ½" x 19 ½" framed Henry Thomas Alken was born into a family of successful artists. His father, Samuel Alken, was one of the most prolific and acclaimed British sporting artists of his days. Samuel was responsible for the early art instruction that set his son, Henry, on a path towards even greater recognition than his own. Henry received his training not just from his father, but also from the miniature painter J. T. Beaumont (1774-1851), an experience that endowed him with an accomplished graphic precision. He applied this skill to his flippant and anecdotal early paintings, etchings and watercolors of hunting, coaching, racing and other animal subjects. He was also employed by sporting periodicals as an illustrator, and provided plates for the National Sports of Great Britain (London, 1821), strengthening the market for his work in sporting circles, in particular the notorious clique of wealthy and reckless huntsmen who gathered at Melton Mowbray, Leics. In this series on engravings, entitled Notions, Henry Alken presents the comic side of riding. The scenes depict the follies of aristocrats on their weekend sporting outings. At the time these engravings were published, caricature prints mocking the British aristocracy were very popular.

Pinner, Dr. der Philosophie. Mit einer Vorrede von Johann Joachim Kellermann. Erster Band: Entstehung, Sprache, Aechtheit des Thalmud, Reden und Thaten des Rabbi Simon, des Sohnes des Jochai."Ephraim Moses Pinner was a 19th century German Talmudist and archeologist. His first work, published in 1831, the "Kizzur Talmud Yerushalmi V'Talmud Babli" was a translation of sections of both the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds. This was the beginning of his larger project to produce a translation of the entire Talmud. Pinner's work took him to libraries across Eastern Europe. He even secured the aid of the anti-Jewish Czar Nicholas I and dedicated the translation to him. Only the first of the proposed 28 volumes was ever published. Besides for securing sponsorships from royalty across European, Pinner gained letters of approbation from several rabbis, none of whom lived in Russia. This was down apparently through some trickery on Pinner's part. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
