        Watercolour study of fish

      1834. Watercolour. Painted on Whatman paper dated 1834. In excellent condition with the exception of a few small tears on the left edge of sheet. Small section of missing paper on left edge. Two small tears on bottom edge. A stunning watercolour study of fish, including a large octopus, and a colourful sun-fish. Unfortunately we have not been able to discover any information concerning the artist of this charming watercolour. It is numbered and titled within the image but it bears no signature or date. It is obviously from the hand of an accomplished amateur painter who had a natural talent design and keen eye for detail. Amateur animal and flower painting became extremely popular during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century as a favored pursuit for aristocratic women. Painting was viewed as a necessary talent for young women, and was eagerly pursued and practiced by the upper classes. This skillful painting appears to be a watercolour study of an illustrated natural history text. Published scientific texts such as this were printed throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century and commonly included illustrations of both flora and fauna specimens. The numbering and titles further confirm that this is a study from a printed source, since this method of identifying specimens was typically used in published volumes. Lovingly rendered and carefully painted, this skillful watercolour is a true work of art.

        An Account of the Transactions of His Majestry's Mission to the Court of Persia in the years 1807-11, 2 volumes

      London: James Bohn, 1834. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First printing, 1834. Large 8vo, rebound in handsome maroon cloth gilt, 2 volumes in one,pp. viii, 472, xxxiv, (4), v, (6)-238, with half title to first volume, 11 lithographed plates and folding map as called for, collated complete. Fine; text seems slightly trimmed all the way around, very faint small blue spot to middle of frontispiece of the first volume, owner's bookplate on pastedown (Halford Lancaster Hopkins), small ink number stamp on dedication page ('217-A') but no evidence this was a library book. We could find little on Hopkins except that he graduated Earlham College in Indiana in 1913. Brydges' book is rare on the market and commands substantial auction records; a 'modern cloth' bound copy fetched 3000 Pounds in 2007 at Bonhams, with blindstamps to plates, and another copy with 'marginal dampstaining' sold for 8000 Pounds at Sotheby's in 1999.

        RAIL ROAD BRIDGE OVER THE WISSAHICKON, NEAR MANAYUNK].

      [Philadelphia. ca. ]. 1834 - Lithograph, approximately 14 x 8 inches. In an old frame, under glass. A bit tanned. Overall quite good. An early American railroad print. "The bridge spans the Wissahickon just above a waterfall. Robinson's mill stands at the right. On the bridge is a train consisting of a primitive engine, two stagecoach-like passenger cars with passengers on the roofs, and a low car, probably for freight. This bridge was completed for the Philadelphia, Germantown and Norristown Railroad in 1834, and was torn down in 1844 to make way for a new bridge. The bridge had been very unpopular because it was not deemed safe, and this feeling had operated against the success of the railroad" - Wainwright.

        A small collection of 13 items.

      Guayaquil, Quito, San José, & Lima 1834-57 The history of Ecuador during the first generation after achieving independence from Spain was noteworthy for its ever-changing nature: politically part of New Granada, then a separate country; yearnings to be part of Peru; wars against Colombia for ownership of the Cauca region, and war against the Galapagos Islands for ownership of the giant tortoises; the trading off of the presidency between Flores and Rocafuerte; wild swings between rampant anti-clericalism and amicable church-state relations; promulgation of several radically different constitutions; and, finally, the institutionalization of political anarchy beginning in 1845 following the forced exile of President Flores. This offering contains original documents touching on many of these and other matters. All items in good+ or very good condition.

Gesammelt in den besten literarischen Fruchtgärten des In- und Auslandes", einem vormärzlichen Periodikum der Trivialliteratur in der Art von "Reader's Digest". Quellenangaben im modernen Sinn fehlen; namentlich gekennzeichnete Texte stellen wohl zum Teil Originalbeiträge dar, längere Artikel wurden gerne auf mehrere Einzelhefte aufgeteilt. Die Serie scheint lückenhaft: vermutlich wurden jedes Jahr vier Sammelbände ausgeliefert, von den meisten Jahrgängen sind jedoch nur zwei bis drei Bände vorhanden. Da die Originalumschläge der Zeitschrift nur zum Teil mitgebunden wurden, ist eine exakte Kollationierung schwierig. - Seltenes und dekoratives Kuriosum.

Paru pour la première fois en 1818, il sera augmenté six fois jusqu'en 1859. Cette quatrième édition suit la troisième (1825) qui avait ajouté, en regard de la seconde, un "art de construire des maisons tout en bois et des chalets, selon la méthode du canton de Berne en Suisse". La nouvelle édition de 1834 réaménage la précédente. Dans sa partie théorique, Boitard aborde avec exhaustivité l'ensemble des sujets nécessaires à la théorie et mise en pratique de l'art des jardins : choix du lieu, du site et du climat, travaux préparatoires, comment traiter et utiliser les différents végétaux, comment aménager les eaux (mare, lac, île, source, cascade, torrent, etc.), comment embellir son jardin, grâce à des constructions (ruines, chaumières, chalet, ponts, etc.). Pierre Boitard, botaniste et géologue français, dirigea durant deux ans la "Revue progressive d'agriculture, de jardinage, d'économie rurale et domestique". Il proposa, dès 1838, une première ébauche de la théorie de l'évolution. Orné d'un frontispice, l'ouvrage compte 97 planches qui représentent les différents types de jardins (paysager, potager, de ville, français, anglais, labyrinthe) et de très nombreuses fabriques (rotonde, belvédères, kiosques, balançoires, barques, bac chinois, etc.) Très bon exemplaire ne comportant que quelques rares rousseurs éparses [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pheasants, M & F [Plate LVII]

      [Edinburgh, 1834. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. A beautiful print of pheasants from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life-size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings , pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571.

        Nouvelles considérations sur les rapports du Physique et du moral de l'homme. Ouvrage posthume de M. Maine de Biran, publié par M. Cousin.

      - Paris, Ladrange, 1834.

(1) f. de table. Edition originale posthume, publiée par Victor Cousin sur un manuscrit que lui remit Joseph Lainé, ami et exécuteur testamentaire de l'auteur. Dans sa préface Victor Cousin insiste sur l'importance de cet essai dans le corpus des oeuvres de Maine de Biran: "Je le considère comme le résumé de tous les ouvrages de l'auteur. Non seulement il en renferme toutes les idées fondamentales, mais il en reproduit même les meilleurs chapitres ( ). C'est son dernier mot sur le sujet constant des méditations de toute sa vie ( ). Je ne crains donc pas d'affirmer que ce volume renferme M. de Biran presque tout entier. Cette publication le présente à l'Europe philosophique, à peu près tel qu'il aurait pu s'y présenter lui-même" (p. V). Contient également: "Examen des leçons de M. Laromiguière"; des "appendices" sur Hume et Engel; "Exposition de la doctrine philosophique de Leibnitz" et "Réponses aux arguments contre l'aperception immédiate (.)". (Azouvi, 'Maine de Biran', bibliographie, 469). Ex-libris gravé et armorié de l'époque à la devise: "Recte et Tenaciter". Bel exemplaire, très bien relié à l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Epsom Races. (PAIR) Now they're off To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Start for the Derby Stakes... [and] Here they come. To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Horses passing Tattenham Corner for the Derby Stakes..

      London: S. & J. Fuller, 1834. Aquatints, printed in colours and finished by hand, by R.W. Smart and C. Hunt. A fine pair of images capturing the excitement of the start and final turn during the running of one of the five Classic English horse races This sequence of plates depicting two moments in the Derby Stakes could hardly be more exciting. In Now They're Off , anticipation is over, the fierce, thundering movement has begun. In Here They Come , the final stretch is ahead. The horses appear to be moving more quickly than at the beginning. The cheering crowd is jammed against the inner railing, and spectators are riding madly to witness the finish.In fact, a number have fallen off their horses and are sailing through the air. It all takes place on a beautiful afternoon, sky is blue, there are hills in the distance. But all attention is riveted to horses and riders as they go all out for victory. 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 steeple-chasing 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.150 (2 prints in the series); cf. Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.46 (variant title).

        Character, object, and effects of Trades' Unions; with some remarks on the law concerning them.

      London: James Ridgway and Sons, 1834. 8vo., (2) + 140pp., followed by 16pp. of Ridgway advertisements (these duplicated), light dampstain on first few leaves, original plain wrappers with printed label on upper cover, some wear to spine, but an excellent uncut copy. First edition. Kress C.3884. Goldsmiths 28804. Black 4639. Stammhammer I, p.48. Williams II, 318. In the view of Sidney and Beatrice Webb this was an 'able' pamphlet setting forth the constitution and proceedings of the new unions but criticizing 'their pretensions in a manner which has not since been surpassed. ... (It) remains, perhaps, the best statement of the case against Trade Unionism' [The History of Trade Unionism>, 1894, p.126]. Tufnell's bitter attack on the unions, his accounts of proceedings at secret union meetings and his demand for new and draconian legislation, is all encapsulated in his final paragraph: 'Part of London is now (March 7th) in darkness from a strike amongst the workmen at the gas establishments. Scarcely a town in England has escaped the infliction of a turn-out, and were (the writer) to state that the working classes, have taxed themselves to the amount of one million during the past year, in these futile attempts to raise wages, the calculation would probably be below the truth'. The author was one of the factory commissioners.

Expertly bound to style in red morocco over contemporary red cloth boards, spines in five compartments with wide flat bands, tooled in gilt on each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. The first American sporting book with coloured plates, illustrated and published by the founder of the Hudson River school. This an extraordinary copy, extra-illustrated with original wrappers and a complete suite of plates from the very rare third volume. The Cabinet of Natural History , "an amalgam of natural history, sporting accounts, travel narratives, and practical advice for the countryman" (Reese), was started by the brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 when it abruptly ceased publication. The first volume (made up of 12 parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas, but, by the time the third part of the second volume had been issued the partnership had been disbanded. Thomas had moved to Boston to pursue his career as a painter, and as of 17 May 1832, John Doughty was the sole proprietor. Evidently Thomas's input was sorely missed and by mid-summer John was advising his subscribers that unless the level of support improved he would have to discontinue the publication. In the end, the periodical continued for almost another year before John Doughty's prediction was fulfilled and the publication came to a sudden halt with part IV of volume III. However, despite its relatively short life the Cabinet of Natural History left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the `first major sport print color plate book produced in America', the text includes first-hand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are amongst the earliest of their kind (some of which were reprinted by the Derrydale Press in 1928), the plates include the `first colored sporting prints made in America' (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by Thomas Doughty, one of the great names in 19th-century American art. "Of all the predecessors to [Thomas] Cole and his followers, the single artist who could most reasonably claim Cole's mantle as the founder of the [Hudson River] school is the appealing figure of Thomas Doughty, who at one juncture was hailed as 'the all-American Claude Lorrain'" (Howat, The Hudson River and its Painters, p.31). As a painter Doughty "holds a place unique among artists of this country as having initiated the American discovery of the American landscape" (Looney). His importance as a printmaker, however, has yet to be fully recognised or adequately defined, for though "there are many prints to which Doughty's name is attached as artist only, there are only a few for which he was initially completely responsible ... These are the 23 lithographs made specifically for Volume I of ... The Cabinet of Natural History " (op. cit.). Doughty initially trained as a leather currier but by 1820 was listing himself in the Philadelphia City Directory as a landscape painter. "He was restless .. .energetic ... gifted ... [and] was popular almost from the start. People obviously liked his vision of a benevolent natural world ... He exhibited frequently in Philadelphia and elsewhere" (op.cit.). His work was engraved for use in various publications from the early 1820s onwards, but his "major contribution to the world of printmaking, however, lies not in the 40-odd illustrations taken from his paintings and drawings but rather in the plates he himself made for [the present work]" (op.cit). American lithography was still in its infancy when the Doughtys began their periodical, and it is not clear where Thomas learned the art. "He proved himself an able practitioner in the plates of Volume I of the Cabinet , which are important as the first sporting prints in color made in America" (op.cit.). This volume also has the distinction of being the first major book of any kind with coloured lithographic plates printed in America. There were two earlier minor works but "their lithographic illustrations, being chiefly diagrams, have not the same artistic quality as those of the Cabinet of 1830 with its studies of birds and animals in natural settings and dramatic landscapes. Moreover, the Cabinet was widely distributed, and the first eight issues at least were a popular success. In this way, introducing the colored lithograph to a wide audience, it made an important contribution to the development of American lithography ... 1830 was thus crucial in the history of American lithography for the lithographic print came of age, and this was largely through the work of Thomas Doughty" (Looney). "It marks the beginning of dominance of lithography in book illustration" (Reese). The third volume, discontinued after but four parts due to lack of subscription in the publication, is quite rare and is seldom found; this copy includes all 8 plates published in the third volume, along with an original parts wrapper from volume three, part 3. In addition, this set is extra-illustrated with two parts wrappers (front and back) from volume one and two parts. The rear wrappers are of particular interest, containing a prospectus for the work and an advertisement for an ornithological work never published. Bennett, p.35; Gee 132; R.W.

First state of this spectacular image of the Hudson and West Point: focusing 'on the beauty of the Hudson River and the mountains that border it on either side ... a celebration of nature, highlighting the ever-changing drama staged by mountains, water, and sky' (Deak) William James Bennett (c. 1787-1844) was born in England and received his training at the Royal Academy. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. With the arrival of William Bennett and several other émigré artists such as William Guy Wall, and John Hill, the quality of aquatint engraving in America was elevated to a level equaling, or perhaps even surpassing, that of European printmakers.

        Pinnated Grouse [Greater Prairie-Chicken]

      London: R. Havell, 1834. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1834." Fine gilt frame. 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.
