        Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine

      1834. first edition. Scarce Dance of the TarantulaStep By Hand-Colored Panorama Step[PANORAMA]. DURA, Gaetano. Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine dirigée par Louis Puccinelli Maitre de Danse dessinée par Gaetan Dura. Naples: Gatti et Dura, n.d. [c. 1834]. First edition. Oblong octavo (5 7/16 x 7 1/8 in; 138 x181 mm). Hand-colored frontispiece, engraved title, one plate of music notation, and seventeen hand-colored lithographed plates with captions, in accordion format unfolding to 142 1/2 inches. Contemporary half calf over patterned paper boards. Gilt-rolled spine. Armorial bookplate of Mountgarret. An excellent copy of a scarce work.ABPC records only one complete copy at auction since 1923; an incomplete copy with only ten plates was sold in 1955. OCLC/KVK note only three institutional copies, at Harvard, NYPL, and Austria State Library."Also due to the trend of the illustration of the Neapolitan folklore, but more didactic, it is the lithographic album titled Tarantella. Neapolitan Dance, drawn entirely by Dura [1805-1878], published in Naples in 1833, and lithographed by Gatti in 1834. Dura's [Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine], a very important document for the reconstruction of the Neapolitan tarantella, presents nineteen plates, accompanied by captions that explain, step by step, all the different phases of the dance. The style of the illustrations is basic: two dancers, drawn not without a certain grace and accuracy, move isolated on a white background completely devoid of any decoration or pittoresco. In the mid-1830s Dura became ass'ciated with Gatti, founding a lithographic establishment that soon became one of the most important in Naples. The brand of 'Gatti and Dura' published prints, calendars, atlases, graphic novels and works of popular nature, such as almanacs and miscellanies" (Encyclopedia Treccani.it, L'Enciclopedia Italiana).

        LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS

      1834. Very Good. GODWIN, William. LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS: or, an account of the most eminent persons in successive ages, who have claimed for themselves, or to whom has been imputed by others, the exercise of magical power. London: Frederick J. Mason, 1834. First edition. lxx,465 pp. Octavo. Expertly rebacked nineteenth-century binding; bound in quarter black calf, with the original spine laid-down, grey cloth sides, red spine label, all edges speckled red. Occasional light pencil marks and brief pencil notes in margins, else very clean. The cloth is lightly spotted, the fore-corners are gently bumped, and the top-edge is dust-soiled; nonetheless, it is an attractive and solid copy. Very good plus. Godwin's stated purpose for writing this book was "to exhibit a fair delineation of the credulity of the human mind." He begins his survey with an account of ancient superstitions and ends it with the New England witch trials at the end of the seventeenth century. It is the last work Godwin published in his lifetime.

        Svenska fornsånger.

      En samling af kämpavisor, folk-visor, lekar och dansar, samt barn- och vall-sånger. I-III. Sthlm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1834-42. 8:o. XXIII,(1 blank),424,(32) + XVI,482,(48) + XXVI,562 s. + ARWIDSSON, ADOLF IWAR. Prenumerations anmälan. [=rubrik]. Sthlm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1832. 4:o. (1) s. Tre fina samtida lätt nötta hfrbd med breda upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerade och blindpressade ryggar. Gula snitt. Ryggen till del II aningen mera nött och ryggen till den tredje delen med ngt avvikande men snarlik ryggdekor. Delvis lätt lagerfläckiga inlagor med enstaka fuktfläckar. Titelbladen ngt lagerfläckiga, till del I-II endast i marginalen. En liten pappersförlust i yttre marginalen på s. 37 i del III. Anmälans är vikt och dess nederdel, där prenumeranter skulle teckna sig, är bortklippt. Stilig svit på bättre och tjockare papper med L. F. Rääfs exlibris.. Arwidsson hade sedan 1827 i samarbete med L. F. Rääf planlagt vad som skulle bli "Svenska fornsånger", trots att Rääf upplevde sig ha dåliga erfarenheter av att låta utomstående ta del av sina samlingar. Arbetet drog ut på tiden och det dröjde till den 11 maj 1832 innan en prenumerationsanmälan trycktes. I denna uppger Arwidsson att hans arbete ska utgöra "ett slags fortsättning" på Geijers och Afzelius "Svenska folk-visor" och huvudsakligen innehålla L. F. Rääfs och J. Wallmans samlingar, "frukter af långvariga och oförtrutna bemödanden." I ett brev från Rääf till Arwidsson daterat bara 15 dagar efter prenumerationsanmälan framgår att Rääf deltog aktivt i värvandet av subskribenter. Han betonade att anmälan borde delas ut frikostigare och helst vara mer utförlig i sin beskrivning av projektet, "den borde omständligare utvecklas uti något tidningsblad, hvaraf exemplar skulle åtfölja listorna". I förordet till del I framhålls "den bekanta Rääfska samlingen, allmänt känd, bland älskare af våra fornqväden, såsom, i sitt slag, inom vårt land den rikaste till innehåll och mångfald." Rääfs nära samarbete med Arwidsson framgår även av Rääfs otryckta självbiografi där han om "Svenska fornsånger" skriver att "hvarje ark lemnades till min granskning". Första delen recenserades i förhållandevis uppskattande ordalag av Geijer i första numret av "Swenska litteratur-föreningens tidning" 1835

        Pinnated Grouse [Greater Prairie-Chicken] [Plate 186]

      London: R. Havell, [1834]. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1834." Fine gilt frame. 25 3/8 x 38 1/2 inches. One of Audubon's greatest images from the elephant folio first edition of The Birds of America. Set against a background of meadows with hills in the distance, this dramatic image depicts two male Great Prairie Chickens fighting for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment, perhaps after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males launches a physical attack on the rival cock. The female looks on with shy fascination. This plate is among Audubon's most carefully-balanced compositions, with the bulk of the left hand bird offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. Audubon would write of this bird: "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri ... As soon as the snows have melted away ... the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more ... Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly ... to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled ... see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which ... lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed ... the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages ...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes ...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. V, pp.95- 96). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.117.

        PINNATED GROUSE [GREATER PRAIRIE-CHICKEN]. [Pl. 186]

      London: R. Havell, 1834.. Handcolored engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell. Watermarked: "J. Whatman/1834." Sheet size: 25 3/8 x 38 1/2 inches. From the first edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. One of Audubon's greatest images: against a background of western prairie land, a small incident of the greatest importance to its participants takes place in the immediate foreground. Two cock Pinnated Grouse (or Great Prairie Chickens) fight for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment when, after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males, driven beyond endurance, launches a physical attack on his rival. The female looks on with fascination. A carefully balanced composition -- the bulk of the left hand bird is offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri...As soon as the snows have melted away...the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more...Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly...to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled...see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which...lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed...the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" - Audubon. At the time Audubon was writing, the Greater Prairie Chicken had already all but vanished from the eastern states. It was "still abundant on the main western prairies, but this too was to change, mainly because the bird could not adapt to modern agricultural practices. When the native prairie vegetation was eliminated they soon disappeared. Today the remaining populations, much restricted, are carefully managed. An organization in Wisconsin...is dedicated to purchasing, preserving, and managing remaining prairie chicken habitat" - Peterson.

        THE ANIMAL KINGDOM. Arranged According to its Organization, Serving as a Foundation for the Natural History of Animals, and an Introduction to comparative Anatomy. With Figures Designed After Nature: the Crustacea, Arachnides & Insecta, by M. Latreille

      London: G Henderson, 1834 This is the 4 volume edition of Cuvier's famous work and is now becoming very scarce, no doubt due to sets being broken for the illustrations. This set is in fair condition. It is in what looks to be the publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles, and has 695 hand coloured plates, 43 black and white plates (of which 8 are folding) and 5 black and white portraits (4 as frontispieces). Overall the bindings are inelegant and worn but sound. The contents have some browning - mainly to text pages (this looks to be due to paper quality) and there is the occasional loose leaf. All have a frontispiece portrait, decorative title page dated 1837 and second title page dated 1834 in Vols I-III, and 1836 in Vol IV. Vol I has 174 colour plates, and 17 b/w plates. There is water-staining to the frontispiece portrait of Baron Cuvier, and to the decorative title page. Page 171 and Plate 48 are detached with crinkling to edges. Many of the text pages have brown staining but the plates are generally very clean and brightly coloured. This volume covers Mammals and Birds. Vol II has 189 colour plates and 12 b/w plates of which 8 are folding. There is some marking to the frontispiece portrait of Buffon and to the decorative title page. Some text pages have browning and there is a lot of offsetting of the images onto the back of the preceding page. This volume covers reptiles and fish. The fish are particularly brightly coloured - the red colour is the main culprit in the offsetting. Vol III has 216 colour plates. The same browning can be seen to portrait of Audubon and to the decorative title page. Some text sections have browning. There is occasional spotting to the plates. The quality of the plate paper varies: some are quite thick; others are the same thickness as the text pages. This volume covers molluscs, annelids, crustaceans, arachnids and insects. Vol IV has 2 portraits: of Latreille and Linnaeus. It has 116 colour plates and 14 b/w plates. The b/w plates have water staining. The portraits and the decorative title page have browning. Some page edges have been turned over. This volume covers insects and zoophytes.

      Paris: Chez l'auteur. 1834.. First edition, xxxii,230,[8]pp., [jump in pagination from 203-208 but complete], the text is entirely in lithographic script, 4 plates of lithographic utensils and materials, the fore-edge of the upper board has suffered from what appears to be a spill of acid (this was no doubt done by a practising lithographer), this has burnt through the board and effected the blank fore-edge of the first 25 leaves, it is a little unsightly but doesn't effect the text, cont. quarter calf, over patterned paper boards, rubbed."Jules Desportes was a lithographic printer of note who founded and managed the first lithographic trade journal, 'Le Lithographe, journal des artistes et des imprimeurs' (Paris and Rotterdam, 1837-48)... he exercised an important influence on French lithography in the 1830s and 1840s, and his 'Manuel pratique du lithographe' provides the best example I know of the work of a lithographic printer who used the process of lithography to produce his own book."—Twyman.
