        Ramphastos citreopygus [Lemon-rumped Toucan]

      - [London: by the Author, 1835]. Hand-coloured lithograph by John and Elizabeth Gould, printed by C. Hullmandel. Wove paper. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing. Framed. 19 x 14 1/4 inches (visible). Black and gold Hogarth frame. 29 x 24 inches. A fine image from the first edition of John Gould's "A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans." The toucan family is limited to Mexico, Central and South America and some West Indian islands. The first time that any member of the family was described was by Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes in his de la natural hystoria de las Indias (Toledo, 1526, chapter 42). In 1555 Pierre Belon included an illustration of its beak in his L'Histoire de la nature des oyseaux (Paris, 1555, p.184). Andre Thevet first used the name "Toucan" with a long description, and a woodcut of a whole bird, in his Singularitez de la France (Paris, 1555, pp.88-90). The Latin name Burhynchus or Ramphestes (in reference to the size of the beak) was suggested by Conrad Gesner (Icones Avium, 1560, p.130), and Linnaeus later adopted Aldrovandus's corrupted form of the latter (Ramphastos) which is how the family was still recognized at the time of the publication of the present image. The present image is from the first edition of Gould's work, published in 1833-1835, which represented the first concerted attempt to produce a monograph on the family. A second expanded edition was published between 1852 and 1854. Gould considered this to be completely separate work as the plates were all redrawn and the text rewritten. Cf. Anker 170; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 101; cf. Nissen IVB 378; cf. Sauer 3; cf. Wood p. 364; cf. Zimmer p. 252. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Collection of Two Autograph Letters Signed "W. Parry"; With Two Engraved Portraits of William Parry]: Sir Captn. W.E. Parry, R.N.

      - Letters: 1) Mattishall, 17 April 1835. Quarto (ca. 23x18 cm). 3 pp. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper, docketed on the 4th page. 2) Greenwich Hospital, 1 May 1854. 12mo (ca. 17,5x11,5 cm). Brown ink on laid paper, docketed in a different hand in the end of the letter. Both letters with fold marks, second letter slightly stained on the last blank page, otherwise a very good pair. Portraits: stipple engraved book plates, ca. 14x12 cm (from the European Magazine, London, 1821) and ca. 7,5x6 cm (by J. Limbird). Very good portraits. These two original letters written by a renowned Arctic explorer William Parry relate to the time of his government service in the 1830s and 1850s - as an Assistant Poor-Law Commissioner in the County of Norfolk (1835-1836) and a governor of the Greenwich Hospital (1854 until his death). In the first letter addressed to some "R. Kerrinson, Esq." Parry asks for the "Norwich Papers", as well as "a Copy of a small publication I have seen, containing the Parliamentary Returns of the Population &c. of the county, divided into Kindreds and Parishes." He is also looking forward to hear about "what you have done in compliance with the Order for Relief in kind". In the end Parry adds: "Will you ask the Governor to allow a Couple of the Copies of the Printed Notice to Overseas & to be pasted up in the Workhouse". The second letter was written by Parry in the rank of a governor of the Greenwich hospital to some Rev. Reginald Smith (as seen from the docket). The letter regards the donation made by the correspondent in favour of "Sailors", which needed to be forwarded to the Military Association. The letters are supplemented with two stipple engraved portraits of William Parry, both based on the famous Parry portrait by Samuel Drummond (National Portrait Gallery).

      40 -Edinburgh and Manchester- John Sutherland, and James Ainsworth, 1835. 40 -Edinburgh and Manchester- John Sutherland, and James Ainsworth, 1835 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete collection of the early victorian patriotic periodical Tales of the Borders. With numerous historical and fictional tales, surrounding or set within Scotland. Issued in 312 nos. (dated Nov. 8, 1834 through Oct. 24, 1840), and published in six vols. Volume one features an engraved frontispiece of John Mackay Wilson, engraved by J. Gellatly, from an original picture after his death. In the 19th century, it was not uncommon to see itinerant lecturersventuring across their countries, allowing great opportunities for them to meet with people, and listen to local stories and folk tales. It is during his itinerant lecturesthat John Mackay Wilson was inspired to write and compile the Tales of the Borders. In total, Wilson published in the first series, 48 numbers, totalling 73 tales. After his death, his brother James continued the series, followed by Alexander Leighton, a Scottish medical doctor and puritan preacher and pamphleteer who died under torture by King Charles I , because he attacked the Anglican Church in one of his pamphlet. Each weekly number came forth in small quarto size, with a blue cover and the arms of Berwick on the title-page. It was customary to have the Tales read aloud in the family circle; and often the reading was accomplished only in broken accents with intermittent sobs, while the sleeves of the auditors were much occupied in brushing away the sympathetic tears. Complete in six volumes. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, all are rubbed with wear to extremities and spines. Wax to the front board of volume six. Front joint to volume five is starting. All fronthingesare strained. Internally, binding is tender in places, with endpapers absent to volume six. some marginal age toning, and intermittently clean, with occasional instances of spotting.

Jean Gigoux,1806 - 1894 , was a French artist, draftsman, lithographer and illustrator. Shallcross Fitzherbert Jacson was the nephew of Samuel Edward Widdrington, 17871856, the writer on Spain.

        Memoires de Luther, Ecrits par Lui-Meme

      Paris - LibrairieClassique de L. Hachette, 1835. Paris - LibrairieClassique de L. Hachette, 1835 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The fascinating memoirs of Martin Luther, translated and put in order by the eminent French historian Jules Michelet. Preceeded byan essay on thehistory of religion. Followed by biographies of Wicleff, Jean Huss, Erasme, Melanchton, Hutten and other predecessors and contemporaries of Luther. Complete in two volumes. Jules Michelet (1798-1874) was a French historian. When the revolution broke out, Michelet, unlike many other men of letters, did not attempt to enter active political life, and merely devoted himself more strenuously to his literary work. Uncompromisingly hostile as Michelet was to the empire, its downfall and the accompanying disasters of the country spurred him into activity. Not only did he write letters and pamphlets during the struggle but when it was over he set himself to complete the vast taks of his two great histories, which he accompanied with numerous other books, chiefly of erudition, such as the uvres choisies de Vico, the Mmoires de Luther crits par lui-mme, the Origines du droit franais, and somewhat later the le Procs des Templiers. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally sound although somewhat rubbed. The hinges are slightly strained but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound. Bright throughout with light scattered foxing, particularly to first and last few pages as usual. Copperplate ink signatures to front free-endpapers. Overall: GOOD..

        Histoire naturelle des animaux sans vertèbres, présentant les caractères généraux et particuliers de ces animaux, leur distribution, leurs classes, leurs familles, leurs genres, et la citation des principales espèces qui s'y rapportent.

      Paris, Baillière 1835 - 11 volumes in-8. Collation : Demi-basane bleue, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.) Le premier tableau complet qui ait jamais été donné des invertébrés. C'est une version beaucoup plus étendue du "Système des animaux sans vertèbres" (1801), qui avait paru en un seul volume. Cette "Histoire naturelle des animaux sans vertèbres" a été publiée une première fois (1815-1822) en 7 volumes. C'est donc une version plus étendue, revue et augmentée de notes par Deshayes et Milne Edwards et le concours de Dujardin pour les radiaires et les tuniciers, et de Nordmann pour les vers. Dans l'introduction, qui occupe presque tout le premier volume, Lamarck expose les quatre lois de sa théorie de l'évolution. En systématique, Lamarck a séparé les araignées et les crustacés, des insectes. Il est avant tout l'inventeur de la distinction entre vertébrés et invertébrés. Cet ouvrage a conservé jusqu'à aujourd'hui une certaine valeur comme point de départ pour des recherches en systématique. Landrieu, Lamarck pp. 239 et suivantes. Reliures légèrement usées aux coiffes et aux charnières, papier un peu roussi, mais assez bel exemplaire. // You can browse all my books on latude.net [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Poetical Works of Thomas Gray

      53 - London - William Pickering, 1835. 53 - London - William Pickering, 1835 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An elegant set of The Poetical Works of Thomas Gray. Complete in five volumes. There is an engraved portrait of Gray to the verso of front free-end paper in volume I. Volume I also contains an essay on the life of Thomas Gray by John Mitford, followed by poems, posthumous poems and fragments, extracts and poemata. Volume II contains an essay on the poetry of Gray by John Mitford, followed by Gray's letters. Volume III contains more of Gray's letters. Volume IV contains more letters, an appendix andcriticisms on architecture and painting. Volume V finally contains reminiscences and correspondence of Gray, notes by the editor, extracts from a poem on the aphabet by Gray and observations on English metre by Gray. Thomas Gray (26 December 1716 30 July 1771) was an English poet, letter-writer, classical scholar and professor at Cambridge University. He is widely known for his Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, published in 1751. Gray began seriously writing poems in 1742, mainly after his close friend Richard West died. He moved to Cambridge and began a self-imposed programme of literary study, becoming one of the most learned men of his time, though he claimed to be lazy by inclination. Gray was a brilliant bookworm, a quiet, abstracted, dreaming scholar, often afraid of the shadows of his own fame. He became a Fellow first of Peterhouse, and later of Pembroke College, Cambridge. Gray spent most of his life as a scholar in Cambridge, and only later in his life did he begin travelling again. Although he was one of the least productive poets (his collected works published during his lifetime amount to fewer than 1,000 lines), he is regarded as the foremost English-language poet of the mid-18th century. In 1757, he was offered the post of Poet Laureate, which he refused. Gray was so self-critical and fearful of failure that he published only thirteen poems during his lifetime. He once wrote that he feared his collected works would be mistaken for the works of a flea. Gray came to be known as one of the Graveyard poets of the late 18th century, along with Oliver Goldsmith, William Cowper, and Christopher Smart. Gray perhaps knew these men, sharing ideas about death, mortality, and the finality and sublimity of death. Condition: In green crushed Morocco leather bindings with gilt embellishment to the spine and triple gilt ruled edges to the boards. The edges of the leaves are gilt. Externally, sound with slight rubbing. Corners are worn on all volumes. There is some damage to the leather on the spines on all volumes. Front boards are detached on volumes I and II. Internally, generally firmly bound. Front hinge is tender on volume V. Pages are generally bright with some scattered light foxing. End-papers are marbled on all volumes. There are two bookplates to the front pastedown and recto of front free-end paper on all volumes, and to the rear pastedown on volumeV. Overall: GOOD ONLY..
