        A History of British Birds. In two volumes

      Newcastle - R.E.Bewick, 1832 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely two-volume natural historywork filled with charmingwood-engravings, in the publisher's original paper bindings. Volume I contains the historyand description of land birds, volume II the history and description of water birds. Publisher's catalogue to the rear of volume I. With portrait clipping of Thomas Bewick tipped-in to front pastedown of volume I, and a small woodcut illustration ofa white eyelid mangabey to front pastedown of volume II. Complete in two volumes. Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) was a wood-engraver. He published huge numbers of books for children with wonderful illustrations, but his national reputation was fully established by his General History of Quadrupeds, published in 1790, and his History of British Birdsland birds in 1797, and water birds in 1804. The inspiration sprang from his great dissatisfaction with the crudely illustrated books of his youth. Apart from the excellence of the principal figures, the numerous tailpiece vignettes that enlivened every spare space in the book came in for special notice. More than 600 blocks had been engraved for the two volumes of the Birds when the last of the eight editions of Bewick's lifetime had been published. DNBCondition: Bound in publisher's original paper covered boards with original spine labels. Externally very good with just a little shelfwear. The front hinges are slightly strained but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright throughout, and generally clean with a few scattered marks and spots. Slight loss to front free-endpaper of volume I. Lovely books to own, obviously much loved and in remarkable condition for their age. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Nippon. Archiv zur Beschreibung von Japan und dessen Neben- und Schutzländern: jezo mit den südlichen Kurilen, Krafto, Koorai und den Liukiu-Inseln, nach japanischen und europäischen Schriften und eigenen Beobachtungen bearbeitet

      Leiden: bei dem Verfasser, 1832-1852. 'Text': 7 volumes in three, large quarto (16 x 11 ½ inches). Six half-titles and titles, and 3pp. collation subsequently issued by Bernard Quaritch; half-title and 1832 title and 982pp. of text only (of 1426). Lithographed frontispiece, portrait of Schilling Canstadt, on india paper mounted, 95 lithographed plates, views and maps only (including 7 maps [1 folding, 4 double-page], 9 views [1 double-page]). (Some spotting, browning or old light marginal dampstaining to about 17 plates, 1 plate with tear to outer margin.) 19th-century green bubble-grain cloth, titled in gilt on the flat spines. 'Plate' volumes: 2 volumes, folio (23 ½ x 15 ½ inches). Letterpress title dated 1852, two section titles and 1 leaf of text. Lithographed frontispiece and 347 (of 382?) plates, views and maps only (including 17 maps [2 hand-coloured in outline, 12 double-page, 2 of these hand-coloured], 46 views; 10 plates hand-coloured or printed in colours, 67 on india-paper or tinted), extra- illustrated with 16 duplicate plates (Light old marginal dampstaining or spotting to about 80 plates.) 19th-century brown cloth-backed boards, titled in gilt on the flat spines. A noble fragment of the "Nippon": an all encompassing work on Japan of the pre-Meiji era, the plate volumes are in the deluxe folio format which allows the full value and beauty of the images to be fully appreciated. The total number of plates in both sections is 461, of these 103 are duplicates, giving a total of 358 individual images: this number comes closer to the probable required total of 382 than the number of plates in any other copy of the work recorded at auction since the war. The plates printed on the smaller format paper of the text volumes to a large extent duplicate those in the plate volumes: of the 97 images in the text volumes, only 10 do not have the same image printed on large paper in the plate volumes. This together with total of 348 images in the plate volumes makes up the total of 358 images. Siebold 's work was published over what was to prove to be the final decades of the Edo (or Tokugawa) period which ended with the overthrow of the last shogun and the restoration of supreme power to the emperor, in the form of Meiji Tenno. Siebold was able to record, from first-hand observation the final period of traditional Japan, a period which had lasted for over 200 years and had been, for the most part, a time of peace, political stability and economic growth. He was able to record a way of life, of art and religion much of which was swept away by the moves in the Meiji period to westernize and modernize. The shogunate had been founded by Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1603. He achieved hegemony over the entire country by balancing the power of the potentially hostile domains (tozama) with strategically placed allies (fudai) and collateral houses (shimpan). As a further strategy of control, beginning in 1635, Ieyasu's successor required the domainal lords, or daimyo, to maintain households in Edo (modern Tokyo) and reside there for several months every other year. As part of the systematic plan to maintain stability, the social order was officially frozen, and mobility between the four classes (warriors, farmers, artisans and merchants) was prohibited. Another aspect of the concern with political stability was fear of foreign ideas and military intervention with the result that and official policy of national seclusion was adopted. Contact with the outside world was limited to a few Chinese and Dutch merchants who were still allowed to trade through the southern port of Nagasaki. The national economy expanded rapidly in the last quarter of the 17th century. The resultant increase in mercantile activity gave rise to a well-to-do merchant class which brought with it a dynamic urban culture that found expression in new literary and art forms. This economic success brought with it the seeds of the destruction for the shogunate period: the daimyo and samurai classes began to experience financial difficulties as their income was not keeping pace with the rises experienced by the merchants. A number of attempts at reform were tried during the 18th century, but the financial strain on the warrior class increased. The period when Siebold was in Japan was one of increasing unrest from the samurai, peasant uprisings and constant financial problems. The powerful southwestern tozama domains of Choshu and Satsuma exorted the greatest pressure on the government and eventually bought about the final overthrow of the last shogun. The present work is notoriously difficult to find complete: the extended period over which it was published, allied with the financial difficulties of the Dutch publisher, have ensured that few, if any, complete copies remain. In fact, booksellers of the period are recorded as having the greatest difficulty in completing sets, and the facsimiles published in 1897 and 1931 were reproduced from a number of different, but incomplete sets.

        New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory, 1833

      Sydney,: Stephens & Stokes, December, 1832.. Octavo, folding map, engraved title-page with view of the GPO, two folding tables, two folding plates (one hand-coloured), map of Mount Victoria, two views of the Mount Victoria pass by John Carmichael, and 11 engraved advertisements for Sydney merchants; a good copy in old quarter cloth on plain boards preserving an earlier black leather label. Rare Sydney almanac and directory in very good original state, with its complete suite of engraved plates and maps by three of the most important early Sydney printers and engravers, John Carmichael, William Wilson and William Moffitt.This was the second year of publication for the New South Wales Calendar, and it features an impressive roll-call of contributors. Of particular note is the engraved folding 'Map of the Town of Sydney 1833', engraved by Wilson from an original plan drawn by Major Thomas Mitchell, then serving as Surveyor-General of the colony. Importantly, Mitchell also contributes a 'Description of Mount Victoria', which details the building of the new pass over the Blue Mountains opened in 1832; Mitchell's report is accompanied by a map and two fine engravings by John Carmichael. Another major contribution is the interesting 'Sketch of the Colony of New South Wales; or, Australia' by the Reverend C. Pleydell N. Wilton, Chaplain of Newcastle.A fascinating inclusion is Phillip Parker King's 'Sailing Directions for the Navigation of the Inner Route, through Torres Strait; with a Description of the north eastern coast of New South Wales, from Breaksea Spit to Cape York' (pp. 19-52). Reprinted from its original appearance as an appendix to his voyage account of 1827, King's detailed reports are included here specifically 'in the hope of their being of use, and of rendering the passage of the inner route to Torres Strait more available to the commercial world', at a time when the treacherous waters of the Great Barrier Reef were playing host to increased shipping traffic.These almanacs are a rare opportunity to study the skill of the local engravers and printers, while also providing a detailed picture of life in the colony, whether it is the comprehensive 'Itinerary of Roads throughout New South Wales' (pp. 53-149), lists of the civil and military establishment, information regarding shipping, business and public institutions, or the 'General Post Office Directory' itself. Of great charm are the eleven engraved advertisements for local merchants including the watchmaker Broad, and Edward Fagan of the Wellington Brewery in George Street. 'In New South Wales almanacs and directories were chiefly devoted to government and commercial activities. Views of Sydney, maps and advertisements make up most of the pictorial content... Carmichael and Wilson came to the colony as free men; Moffitt was transported for stealing tea.' (Roger Butler, Printed Images in Colonial Australia 1801-1901, p. 63; for examples of some of the illustrated trade cards see also pp. 64-65).Ferguson, 1689.

        The Masque of Anarchy

      London: Edward Moxon,, 1832. A Poem. Now first published, with a preface by Leigh Hunt. Small octavo (159 × 101 mm). Bound without the half-title in early 20th-century blue levant, spine gilt-lettered direct, raised bands, turn-ins richly gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Bookplate of William Marchbank (1828–1891), Yorkshire mill owner. Head of spine bumped, with attendant short splits to joints at head but headcap holding, a very good copy. First edition. The passing of the 1832 Reform Act emboldened Leigh Hunt to allow at last the publication of Shelley's incendiary poetic reaction to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819: "Rise like lions after slumber / In unvanquishable number! / Shake your chains to earth, like dew / Which in sleep had fall'n on you: / Ye are many—they are few." The publisher Moxon, Charles Lamb's son-in-law, would later stand trial for blasphemous libel for publishing a relatively unexpurgated edition of Queen Mab.

        The Birds of Europe

      London: printed by Richard and John E. Taylor, published by the Author, [1832-] 1837. 5 volumes, folio. (21 1/4 x 14 1/4 inches). 2pp. list of subscribers in vol.I. 448 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates (68 drawn and lithographed by Edward Lear, 380 drawn and lithographed by Elizabeth Gould from sketches and designs by John Gould), printed by Charles Hullmandel. Contemporary tan half morocco over marbled paper- covered boards by Rowbottom of Derby, spines gilt in six compartments with wide raised bands, the bands tooled in gilt and flanked by fillets in gilt and blind, lettered gilt in the second and fourth compartments, marbled endpapers. First edition: a fine copy of Gould's first multi-volume ornithological work and the first of his works to feature plates by Edward Lear: one of the greatest ornithological artists of all time. Lear's contributions included the most eye-catching subjects in the book: eagles, owls, cranes, pelicans, geese, swans, and flamingos. Lear's plates are from bird drawings that "are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm" (Hyman). "Lear's participation transformed the work of Mrs. Gould. ... [H]e propelled her limited sense of perspective into the third dimension. He encouraged movement, vigor, and a sense of character in her birds; he instilled an idea of composition in which the subject related to its background instead of perching in midair like a cardboard cutout. He introduced a sense of subtlety and freedom into her drawings where previously she had only mimicked the technique used in etching or engraving. There is no doubt that Edward Lear was the first person to understand the art of lithography and to use it to its fullest potential. It was a legacy that made the works of Gould into a success and took them into the forefront of nineteenth-century illustration" (Tree).

        Tales and NovelsIn Eighteen Volumes

      33 - London -Baldwin and Cradock, 1832 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A uniformlysmartly bound collection of works from prolific Irish writer of adults' and children's literature, Maria Edgeworth. Containing a collection of short stories, novels, essays and works with themes of etiquette, as well as social and moral education. Maria Edgeworth was one of the first realist writers in children's literature and was a significant figure in the evolution of the novel in Europe. She held advanced views, for a woman of her time, on estate management, politics and education, and corresponded with some of the leading literary and economic writers, including Sir Walter Scott and David Ricardo. Having come to her literary maturity at a time when the ubiquitous and unvarying stated defence of the novel was its educative power, Maria Edgeworth was among the few authors who truly espoused the educator's role. Her novels are morally and socially didactic in the extreme. v. 1. Castle Rackrent, An essay on Irish bulls, An essay on noble science of self-justification. v. 2. Moral tales (Volume I). v. 3. Moral tales (Volume II). v. 4. Popular tales (Volume I). v. 5. Popular tales (Volume II). v. 6. Tales of fashionable life (Volume I). v. 7. Tales of fashionable life (Volume II). v. 8. Tales of fashionable life (Volume III). v. 9. Tales of fashionable life (Volume IV). v. 10. Tales of fashionable life (Volume V), and The modern Griselda. v. 11. Belinda (Volume I). v. 12. Belinda (Volume II). v. 13. Leonora, with Letters on several subjects. v. 14. Patronage (Volume I). v. 15. Patronage (Volume II). v. 16. Patronage (Volume III), and Comic dramas. v. 17. Harrington, and Thoughts on bores. v. 18. Ormond. Adorned with a beautifully engraved frontispiece and vignette title page to each volume. Collated complete. One of Edgeworth's more famous works; Patronage as a book is path-making; it was the first novel with a thesis and as such, it opened the way for Sir Walter Scott's historical novels. In the novel, Edgeworth focuses on and scrupulously explores the various types of patronage and the many forms it takes in all strata of English society. Despite the rigour of her analysis, Edgeworth obtains a sense of subtlety through her ingenious use of variations in characterisations and a well diversified plot. Complete in eighteen volumes. Condition: All volumes have been rebound in half calf bindings, with marbled boards and gilt detailing to the spines. Externally, all volumes generally smart, aside from some light rubbing and sunning to the spines. Small instance of damp staining to the tail of volume twelve's spine. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound and bright. Instances of spotting, which are scattered intermittently throughout, and slightly heavier to the first and last pages. Many of the frontispieces have their original tissue guards. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Rock Thrush - Petrocincla saxatilis

      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.

      Leyden, Du Mortier en Zoon, 1832-1838. 4 volumes bound in two. Folio (340 x 240mm). With 265 fine handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half cloth. One of the first scientific works with lithographed plates published in the Netherlands. The fine plates are after drawings by the author. Only 116 copies were subscribed and probably 130 copies were printed. It was issued in 53 parts and published over a period of 5 years. The publishing history of the work is complex. The first 5 plates were printed by Van Sander and Co. and published by J.C. Sepp and Son. Sepp discontinued the publication which was taken over by Mortier. Mortier issued the first 5 plates again. For this reason copies are sometimes found with 5 extra plates, and hence most bibliographies quote the wrong number of plates. Landwehr gives 266 plates, which is incorrect as plate 232 was never published. In the lists of plates in volume IV plate 232 is not listed. A fine and clean copy. Landwehr 6; Nissen BBI, 39.

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)

        Experimental Researches in Electricity; First Edition, complete set of 30 series parts (plus Supplement to Eleventh series and Continuation of Twenty-second series),

      with 14 plates exactly complete and located as textually called for, with numerous textual illustrations, PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST. First Editions, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1832-1856, superbly bound in a large thick quarto, three-quarter green morocco, with raised bands gilt, by Trevor Lloyd, with the general title-page for the first part (1832) retained, most plates with very small and neat embossed uninked library name (this virtually invisible), one plate with small repairs in upper blank margin, an excellent attractive set beautifully preserved and bound, London, The Royal Society, 1832-1856. * See Printing and the Mind of Man, 308 and Horblit 29 (both citing the later collected book-form edition).*An extremely rare complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. Between 1832 and 1856, Faraday published in the Philosophical Transactions a series of 30 papers entitled "Experimental Researches in Electricity," in which his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first announced to the world. The first 29 of these papers were collected and published in three volumes between 1839 and 1855; the 30th paper, published in 1856, never appeared in book form. The "First series" of the "Experimental researches," published in 1832, is Faraday's single most important scientific paper: it reports his discovery of the means for generating electricity by electro-magnetic induction and his invention of the dynamo. Regarding Faraday's invention of the dynamo, his biographer L. Pearce Williams has this to say: ". . . it was impossible to realize at the time the revolution in man's life that would be worked by future developments of this apparatus. . . . From this simple laboratory toy was to come the whole of the electric power industry and the benefits to everyone that have followed upon the ability to transport electricity to even the smallest village or farm. Faraday did realize that here was a possible source of cheap electric current, but he was too immersed in discovery to think of pursuing the practical aspects. . . . The story is told that Sir Robert Peel, the Prime Minister, visited Faraday in the laboratory of the Royal Institution soon after the invention of the dynamo. Pointing to this odd machine, he inquired of what use it was. Faraday is said to have replied, "I know not, but I wager that one day your government will tax it" (Williams, Michael Faraday, pp. 195-96). The "Second series" of the "Experimental Researches," which deals with terrestrial electromagnetic induction and the force and direction of electromagnetic induction generally, is of almost equal importance to the "First series," as it represents the birth of the field concept. Through his experiments, Faraday had made the surprising discovery that the lines or curves of force generated by a magnet are independent of their source. Williams writes that: "in the same paper [i.e., the "Second series"] in which Faraday had noted the independence of the magnetic lines of force, he also introduced a new concept. This was the idea of the field of force generated in time and extending progressively through space. . . . For the next thirty years [Faraday] was to search for essentially two things: the way in which electric and magnetic forces were transmitted through space, and the relation between these forces and ponderable matter. It is no exaggeration to say that a fundamentally new way of looking at physical reality was introduced into science in this Second Series of the Experimental Researches. Hitherto all that had been really attended to was the effects of forces acting upon matter.
