        1832 John E. Wool Writes to Lewis Cass

      1832 - John E. Wool (1784-1844) was an officer in the U.S. Army from the War of 1812 through the American Civil War, obtaining the rank of Brigadier General in 1841. In the 1820s and early 1830s, the Army sent him to Europe to learn about others' military organization and operations. Lewis Cass (1782-1866) was an American military man and politician. In 1832, he was Secretary of War for President Jackson. This lengthy letter has superb content regarding the conclusion of the Siege of Antwerp. Wool begins, "I hasten to transmit to you the enclosed correspondence between General Chasse and Marshal Gerard," then transcribes an extract from a message dated December 24, Antwerp. In part: "The conditions of the capitulation exceed all that could have been expected; the Marshal has obtained everything that he could have obtained after a victorious assault. The garrison is to file off with drums at their head, and after having laid down their arms. surrender themselves prisoners of war." Wool goes on to offer his own opinions on Chasse's defense of the citadel, mentions an engraving of the citadel that he enclosed with the letter, and ends with friendly good wishes for Cass's family. Written on a full sheet of 9" x 14 3/4" paper, folded in half. The first and third pages of the letter are presented in the image here. A few small separations to the center fold, two of which are repaired on the interior with archival tape, one stain from an old tape repair, and a bit of light staining to the fold. The three pages of text are not affected at all, and are in fantastic shape.

Assez bel exemplaire, offert par la Société Chirurgicale d'Emulation (de Montpellier) à Joseph Franc, qui devint chirurgien et urologue, professeur agrégé à la Faculté de médecine de Montpellier (Dulieu, La médecine à Montpellier, T. 4, pp. 789-790 ).

        Memoria histórica sobre las operaciones e incidencias de la division libertadora

      First edition of this remarkable source of information on the Independence of Peru, finely illustrated by Argentina´s foremost lithographer. 1832. Buenos Aires. Imprenta de la Gaceta Mercantil. In 8vo (202 mm x 142 mm). 1 [blank] + xv + 1 ff. + 247 + 3 ff. + portrait, 2 folding maps & folding table. Contemporary half calf, spine flat, front board reattached, with minor loss, lettered and tooled in gilt, a bit worn. Title reinstated and with erased stamp, normal browning and foxing, short tear to map, else fine. A very good copy of the first edition, dedicated by Arenales. The work focuses on the second campaign, of 1821, to Peru, sent by San Martin. The illustration includes a portrait of General Arenales and two folding maps (one of Peru), all engraved by Bacle ?one of Argentina´s foremost lithographers- and a folding table entitled ?Egercito Libertador del Peru, Estado general de las fuerzas con que se halla hoy en dia?. Arenales was an Argentinian military, engineer and politician; as a military, he acted at the orders of San Martin at the Andes army, and then in the northern frontier and finally at the war with Brazil, probably during the last chapters of his career he obtained the information he would use to write this work. He was also chief of the topography department of Buenos Aires; the work was written by his son. Sabin, 1930, apparently never saw it.

        Calais

      Paris: chez l'Editeur.. Imprime par Sauniée, 1832. 19 5/16 x 23 ½ inches. A fine and rare separately issued view of the main French port on the north coast after `one of the earliest and most accomplished of English water-colourists' (DNB Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Paul Legrand after Francia, printed by Sauniée. Francia (1772-1839) `was born at Calais…, and was brought early in life to London by his father, a refugee… He commenced to exhibit at the Royal Academy in 1795, and contributed from that year to 1821 (inclusive) eighty-five works in all to its exhibitions. He was one of the sketching society formed by Thomas Girtin about 1799… He was a member of the (now Royal) Society of Painters in Water-Colours, and for some time its secretary, but he resigned his membership, and became in 1816 an unsuccessful candidate for the associateship of the Royal Academy. The next year he retired to Calais, where he resided till his death on 6 Feb. 1839. Here he gave instruction to R. P. Bonington, whose coast scenes bear much resemblance to the later works of Francia. Francia's earlier drawings are broad and simple in execution, rich, but sombre in colour, like those of Girtin; but his later work, while still retaining its breadth and harmony, is brighter and lighter in tone, and more subtle in handling. Though he painted landscape of different kinds, his favourite subjects were shore scenes, which he executed with great truth and beauty of aerial effect. He was an excellent draughtsman of boats and shipping, and some of his drawings were engraved to illustrate a book of sketches of shipping by E. W. Cooke.

        Falco Candicans [Greenland Gyrfalcon]

      - London: [by the Author, 1832-1837]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after J. Wolf and H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. (Slightly trimmed along the right side). 22 x 14 3/4 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood). This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This improvement is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered.it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

        Woodchat - Lanius rufus

      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.

        The Rèpublic of Mexico in 1876. A political and ethnographical division of the population, character, habits, costumes and vocations of its inhabitants. Translated into English by George F. Henderson.

      - Palau 65704. Interesting work on the politics, history and ethnography of Mexico, by the Mexican scientist Antonio Garcia Cubas (1832-1912). In the third part on ethnography the focus is on several indigenous Mexican Indian families. "For a better knowledge of the races, their real characteristics, their uses and customs should be studied, as I have mentioned on another occasion, in the depths of the mountainous regions where they still preserve their ancient habits and their dialects with greater purity. Tlapacoyan at the foot of the Sierra of Tezuitlan, and Amatlan in the neighbourhood of Cordoba, both in the State of Vera Cruz, display to us the best types of the Mexican family" (pp. 67-68). The text is also clarified by tables, for example a 'Synopsis of the Indian languages of Mexico, formed according to the classification of D. Francisco Pimentel'.

        THE SIAMESE TWINS. FOR [ONE] DAYS ONLY [caption title]

      Ithaca: Mack and Andrus, [1832 or 1838].. Broadside, 15 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Some separation at folds, several closed tears at edges. Light soiling and moderate wear. Good. A promotional broadside for Chang & Eng Bunker, the original "Siamese twins." The broadside is printed with space for completing the date and times in manuscript, as has been done in the title - "one" is written in by hand. The top of the broadside has a large woodcut vignette showing the two boys, the band joining them at the center of their torsos plainly evident. The rest of the text reads, with the manuscript portions in brackets: "It is very respectfully made known to the Ladies and Gentlemen of [Salem] and its neighbourhood, that an opportunity is now offered to such as have a desire to see the young men known as the Siamese Twin Brothers, who have excited so much astonishment, and so many curious speculations among the scientifick men and the publick generally, from the extraordinary manner in which their bodies are joined together. They will be at [Mr. Henry Malls Tavern in Salem on Monday nest the 29th of October] admittance 25 cents." The hours of admission are also given, and it is advertised that "Pampohlets containing an historical account, and also a full length likeness of the twins, can be had in their room only. Price 12 1-2 cents." Chang & Eng Bunker, born in Thailand in 1811, were "discovered" by a British promoter in 1829 and taken on world tour. They eventually settled in North Carolina, in 1839, and led relatively normal lives, marrying two sisters and having between them twenty-one children. Printed in the 1830s, October 29th occurred on a Monday in 1832 and 1838, tentatively dating this broadside. Rare and interesting.

        First Report of the Council of the Australian College

      Sydney,: printed by Horatio Wills, at the Sydney Gazette Office,, 1832.. Octavo, 8 pp.; very good in original dark blue paper wrappers, stitch-sewn, bookplate of Australian entomologist Nancye Kent Perry (1972). Very rare, in very good original condition: the earliest report of the Australian College, and a rare Horatio Wills-printed work; Wills was the successor to Robert Howe at the Gazette.The Reverend Lang had always been interested in promoting education, opening a primary school in 1826, and planning the Australian College some time around 1831, with work on their premises in Bridge Street beginning the same year; the school 'survived with ups and downs till 1854; at its best in the late 1830s it appears to have been run very efficiently' (ADB). As this pamphlet attests, in the early days the school could certainly count on some high profile support from council members including Major Mitchell, and the great banker and benefactor Thomas Walker. This pamphlet sketches out the salient figures of the new college, with good notes on the four teachers whose employment was being sought; the Reverends Pinkerton, Anderson, Carmichael, and McGarvie (John, not his brother the printer William).Horatio Wills was an enigmatic figure. He was born in Sydney in 1811, and in 1812 his widowed mother married George Howe, printer and editor of the Gazette. His education was sketchy, and he seemed to positively dislike his step-brother Robert, the more so after Robert took over from his father and, in 1823, young Horatio became his apprentice. Over the next years he routinely absconded, but continued to work in the firm after Robert Howe's death in 1829. He took over the firm in 1832, beginning publication of The Currency Lad the same year, but he left the printery for good in June 1833; Morrison was able to list only a handful of books published over his name.Ferguson knew only his own copy and a second in the Mitchell Library. Ferguson noted that the Reverend Carmichael was the superintendent and Lang the secretary of the College, and that his copy was liberally annotated by Carmichael, "who attacks Dr. Lang with great asperity.".Ferguson, 1508.

MILITARY : 'It is not difficult to discover, that the present exalted situation of our Indian possessions has much less to hope than to fear from the chance of arms; that in the prosecution of remote wars, the undertaking gradually becomes more difficult, the event more doubtful, the possession more precarious and less beneficial.'

        Asia for the Elucidation of the Abbe Gaultier's Geographical Games

      London,: John Harris, 1832.. Engraved map, 345 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring; mounted. An attractive children's educational map of Australia, Asia and the east coast of Africa.The map is based on the work of the AbbÈ Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was an influence on game-makers and educational publishers both on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821.Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, as here, and others with geographical information added. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832.All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one recorded in Australia, at the National Library of Australia. The National Library also has a copy of this individual map dated 1823, but otherwise identical to this one.Tooley, 132 (1823 issue).

        TALES OF MY LANDLORD, Fourth and Last Series

      1832. In Four Volumes. Edinburgh: Printed for Robert Cadell / London: Whittaker and Co., 1832. Original grey-green cloth with spine labels. First Edition of the last of the Waverley Novels -- actually comprising two separate novels, "Count Robert of Paris" (2-1/2 volumes) and "Castle Dangerous" (1-1/2 volumes). This set is in the original morocco-grain grey-green cloth with spine labels; we have had another set in drab paper-covered boards with spine labels, which included a Longman Rees ad catalogue.~This set is complete, with the errata slips in the first two volumes; as specified in Todd & Bowden, the first volume has a half-title, while the other three volumes have a half-title, a series title, and a fly-title for the individual story (in addition, of course, to a title page itself). Condition is remarkably near-fine: the labels are a bit browned and have minor wear, but the cloth bindings themselves have very little wear other than slight rubbing. Most remarkable, most of the leaves remain unopened, after a full 175 years of existence. Todd & Bowden 253A; Worthington 23. Housed in two morocco-backed slipcases with felt-lined chemises.~Each volume bears three bookplates -- the small leather one of noted book collector John Stuart Groves, plus (earlier) that of Howard Pyle and that of Jean Hersholt (one of them signed by Hersholt). Howard Pyle (1853-1911) was the famous American illustrator and writer, primarily for young audiences, one of the founders of the Brandywine school of art, and perhaps best known for his Robin Hood tales. Jean Hersholt (1886-1956) was the great Danish-born actor, perhaps best remembered as Heidi's grandfather, who rose to become President of the Motion Picture Academy (and in whose name the Hersholt Humitarian Award is now given). Quite a provenance -- and amazing condition for the original bindings.

        [DOCUMENTS, PRINTS, AND PHOTOGRAPHS RELATING TO THE ASCENT OF THE MOUNTAIN PIETER BOTH IN MAURITIUS, INCLUDING SEVERAL MAURITIUS IMPRINTS]

      [1832-1865].. Three items. Autograph manuscript: 17pp., 800 words, quarto, sewn in brown paper wrappers. Two uncolored lithographic plates (19 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches) with accompanying folio broadsheet. Printed book: 15pp. plus six mounted photographs, 12mo., half brown morocco gilt with marbled boards, small tear in lower cover, inscription, with accompanying leaf from THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS, Feb. 4, 1865. All contained in a large folio brown cloth folding case. A noteworthy collection of items documenting and illustrating attempts to climb Pieter Both, an unusually shaped mountain located near Port-Louis in Mauritius. Included are several interesting and quite rare Mauritius imprints. The earliest item is an autograph manuscript by Lieut. Arthur Taylor, "Account of the Ascent of the Peter Both Mountain, Mauritius, on the 7th of September 1832." Written in letter format, it details Taylor's climb, the first British expedition to successfully reach the top (a French group led by Claude Peuthé is thought to have scaled the peak in 1790). The party, which had suffered an unsuccessful attempt the previous year, included Taylor, Capt. Lloyd, Lieut. Phillpots, and The Hon. Thomas Keppel. Taylor's account, which includes a small sketch of the "head" of the mountain, lists previous attempts, doubting the veracity of the French attempt in 1790, and recounts the difficulty of the climb, particularly a long sheer cliff face passable only by a narrow ledge. When the summit was reached in the afternoon, the party celebrated with a bottle of wine and spent the night on the mountain with brandy and cigars. Next are two lithographic plates, titled in both French and English. The first is "View of Peterbot, from the Moka side," and the second is "Ascent on the peak of Peterbot on the 24st May 1848." They were drawn by Lieut. Swinny in situ, and lithographed by V. Devreaux in Port Louis. Accompanying the plates is a broadsheet, ASCENT OF PETERBOT, ISLAND OF MAURITIUS, printed in Port Louis on the June 15, 1848, which recounts the second successful ascent of the mountain by an English party led by Swinny, sixteen years after Taylor. TOUSSAINT A617. The third item is a printed book titled THE ASCENT OF PIETERBOTH MOUNTAIN and published in Mauritius by E. Dupuy and P. Dubois (undated and without author). The book contains the first photographic record of a Peterboth climb, shot during an expedition by Capt. Johnston and Mr. Symons of the 2/24th Regiment and others. Although accompanied by Mr. B. Greene "who had with him a camera and everything requisite to take photographic views," the weather did not permit him to do so. The photographs were taken a few days later by Mr. G. Burgman, who was able to ascend the mountain on a fine day. The photographs include the "head" of the mountain, the ascent of the "Ladder Rock," and a view of Port Louis. The inscription present on the front pastedown testifies to the difficulty of the climb: "I tried to climb the Pieterboth in 1865 with a party from the troop ship Tam[ar]. Owing to a heavy fog when near the top the ascent failed. P.H. Leith 11th regiment." TOUSSAINT A783. Accompanying this item is a leaf from the newspaper, THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS of Feb. 4, 1865. It includes the text of this item as an article titled the "Ascent of the Peter Botte Mountain, in the Mauritius," and three wood engravings based on Burgman's photographs. A splendid collection that features several rare Mauritius imprints and pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of mountain climbing. TOUSSAINT A617, A783.

        Domestic Manners of the Americans

      London: Whittaker, Treacher, and Co., 1832. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, finely bound by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath in three-quarters blue leather with elegantly marbled boards and endpapers, with the pages trimmed and their top edge gilted. Frances Trollope's report on American manners. Of course, Frances Trollope was Anthony Trollope's mother. Her husband, his father, was a lawyer whose law practice suffered from Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients. Ultimately, the father took up farming, at which he also was a miserable failure. In 1827, Frances moved to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a general store. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the store was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, wrote "Domestic Manners of the Americans", in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, portraying them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and describing America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England -- with multiple editions of the work being issued during its first year of publication -- and brought her from the brink of financial ruin to prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." The book is illustrated with 24 lithographs by August Hervieu who accompanied Mrs. Trollope to America, a fact which resulted in much speculation about their relationship. Frances Trollope went on to further literary success and fame by authoring numerous well-received novels. Without doubt her experiences shaped her the careers of her two most literary sons, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, and the more famous Anthony Trollope. A Fine copy, elegantly bound. (Please also see our listing for a RARE print published by Childs & Inman in Philadelphia in response to Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans mocking Mrs. Trollope and containing a visual speculation about her relationship with August Hervieu.)

        Goldfinch - Carduelis elegans

      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.

        [St. Leger The Start] Doncaster Races. To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Horses starting for the Great St. Ledger [sic.] Stakes, is most respectfully dedicated by their obedient and most obliged Servants, S. and J. Fuller

      London: S. & J. Fuller, '1 June 1832' [but watermarked '1864']. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by R.W. Smart and C. Hunt. 13 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. A fine image capturing the excitement of the moment before the pistol is fired to start the St. Leger. "..the Horses starting for the Great St Leger..." is a pair with (#18679) "..passing the Judges' stand.." also by the great James Pollard The St Leger, known world wide as the oldest classic turf race, was first entitled 'A sweepstake of 25 guineas' and was not given its present name until 3 years later. It was first run on 25 September 1776, as a sweepstake of 2 miles on Cantley Common in Doncaster. (Colts to carry 8 stone and fillies 7 stone 12 pounds). The first race was won by Allabaculia, a brown filly, owned by the Marquess of Rockingham. The second horse past the post was owned by a military gentleman, Lt Colonel Anthony St Leger, of Park Hill estate, near Firbeck, 9 miles from Doncaster. There is some controversy over the naming of the St Leger, some claim it occurred over a meal at The Red Lion in the Market place, others claim it was at the Salutation on South Parade, others at Warmsworth Hall or at Wentworth Woodhouse, the seat of the Marquess of Rotherham. When it was suggested that it should be called the Rockingham Stakes, the Marquess is said to have replied, ' No it was my friend St Leger who suggested the thing to me - call it after him.' The first official St Leger, was won by Hollandaise ridden by George Herring and owned by Sir Thomas Gascoigne. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.149; Selway James Pollard p.45; Siltzer p.221
