        [An album of views on the River Thames, England]

      1837. Folio. (23 1/8 x 18 3/4 inches). 92 leaves, window-mounted with 344 prints after Farington, Westall, Owen and others, and 2 original watercolours, all of views on or near the Thames, one plate folding, 28 hand-coloured. (Most plates cut close to the image, some with loss of imprint). Expertly bound to style in light brown half calf over original red textured cloth-covered boards, spine in six compartments with wide raised bands, the bands tooled in gilt with fillets and zig-zag roll tools, titled in gilt 'Views / of the / Thames' in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of a large centrally-placed flower spray tool, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: James Frothingham Hunnewell (1832-1910, Charleston, Suffolk County, Mass., bookplate dated 1902) A very fine series of views mounted and bound geographically: the first leaf has views of Thames Head, the final leaf of the Thames estuary. Following the tradition established by the Boydell's with their History of the River Thames the present album allows the viewer to follow the course of the river Thames through the countryside of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, and Surrey before entering London, and then through and out the other side with Essex on one bank and Kent on the other. The prints include aquatints (hand-coloured, printed in two tints, printed in one tint and uncoloured), lithographs, copper-engravings (hand-coloured and uncoloured) and steel engravings. There are images from two main works: J. & J. Boydell's History of the River Thames (London: 1794-1796) with 28 from a total of 76 aquatints after Joseph Farington (with 5 printed in bistre, 1 printed in two tints and 22 hand-coloured) [see Abbey Scenery 432]. There is also a complete suite of uncoloured plates from William Westall's Thirty-Five Views on the Thames (London: 1824) [see Abbey Scenery 434 (a hand-coloured issue)]. Also included are at least 81 uncoloured engravings by William or George Cooke after sketches by Samuel Owen. Neither of the watercolours are signed, but one is of Randall's Mill at Nine Elms and is inscribed 'Nine Elms / Battersea Surrey' in pencil on the verso with a penciled annotation to the mount. The second is inscribed in pencil 'Scene from the Inn at Purflett [sic.] Sept 18/[18]25'. Randall's Mill was a favourite subject for artists in the 1820s, but the present example is reminiscent of the work of John Varley (1778-1842). He is known to have produced at least one other view of the same subject (see Brighton & Hove Museums catalogue: John Varley 'Randall's Mill, Nine Elms, looking towards Vauxhall Bridge' signed and dated 1830, watercolour, 8 3/16 x 12 inches, accession number: 100018), and the penciled annotation beneath the watercolour could be in Varley's hand. If this is the case then he is a possible compiler as a number of the other images are inscribed in pencil by the same hand. The album was subsequently in the library of the well-known Boston book-collector James F. Hunnewell. The author of a number of antiquarian and historical works, he also had a catalogue of his library privately printed in an edition of fifty copies: A Catalogue of Books belonging to James F. Hunnewell of Charlestown, Mass. (Cambridge, Mass: 1873). Abbey Scenery 432 (Boydell), 433 (Havell); Tooley 102 (Boydell), 255 (Havell, 1812 ed.).

        Black Kite. Milvus ater

      London: [by the Author, 1837. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Edward Lear, printed by C. Hullmandel. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing. A beautiful image from John Gould's "The Birds of Europe": a work which, according to Hyman, "included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made." This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya Mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, while the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, The Birds of Europe , in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency." The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: "They 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-consious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm." (Hyman) Cf. Anker, 169; cf.Balis, 101; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen, IVB, 371; cf. Sauer, 2; cf. Zimmer, p. 251.

        The Birds of Europe

      London: printed by Richard and John E. Taylor, published by the Author, 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).

        A Description of the Genus Pinus, with directions relative to the cultivation, and remarks on the uses of the several species: also descriptions of many other new species of the family Coniferae ... To which is added an appendix containing descriptions and figures of some other remarkable plants, and an account of the Lambertian herbarium, by ... David Don

      London: Messrs. Weddell [vols. 1-2]; H. Weddell [vol. 3], 1837. 3 volumes, folio. (vols.I-II: 26 1/2 x 19 3/4 inches; vol.III: 25 1/2 x 18 3/4 inches). Engraved portrait frontispiece of Lambert, 100 plates (comprising 2 folding uncoloured engraved plates [vol.II, Appendix nos. 7 and 8], 98 very fine fully coloured plates: engravings, lithographs and including 6 original watercolours in vol.III), extra-illustrated with an uncalled for dedication "To the King" at the front of vol.I and 17 additional variant coloured plates (including 2 original watercolours) in vols. I (13 plates) and vol.II (4 plates) together with variant text for all but 2 of the plates (including 5 leaves of 8vo text inset to size in vol.I). In all, containing 117 plates, including 8 original watercolours. Engravings by Barlow, Mackenzie, Smith, Warner and Weddell after Bauer, Ehret, Manz, Smith and Sowerby, a few plates lithographed by G. Scharf, one after J. Lycett. Vols. I & II: bound to style in red half morocco over paper-covered boards, spines gilt; vol.III: contemporary dark green half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, spine gilt A unique copy of Lambert's masterpiece with the highest number of recorded plates of any set seen on the market in the past 35 years and more than any institutional copy. This is both an important scientific monograph and an artistic triumph, including spectacular plates after Ferdinand Bauer. This rare edition of Lambert's spectacular work is highly acclaimed for its beauty and the fact that each copy is unique, containing varying numbers of plates as well as original watercolours. The number of such original studies in each set, however, is difficult to ascertain, as the line between pure watercolour and watercolour over printed outline is a very fine one. Only three sets are listed as having sold at auction: the de Belder copy with 100 plates (the number of watercolours unclear, with the set appearing twice at auction with a varying number of watercolours in each catalogue description); Queen Mary's copy with 91 plates (with 6 watercolours), and a copy sold at Christie's London in 1991 with 100 plates (including an unspecified number of watercolours). All of the institutional copies, including those in the British Library, the Smithsonian and New York Botanical Garden Library, contain 100 plates, though the numbers of watercolours are not cited. The standard issue of 100 plates is here augmented by 17 additional ones. Most plates are accompanied by variant text, and all show variations when compared to others. In the present set, in addition to the 8 original watercolours, a number of the plates have details added in watercolour, or have outlines that are so faint that they give the appearance of being executed completely in watercolour. The presence of the inlaid-to-size octavo text in the first volume (published in 1832) suggests that perhaps an impatient subscriber -- unable to wait for the regular publication of vol.III -- bought the available new plates and married them to the smaller available text. This set offers an interesting opportunity to examine the variants between the plates and the text of a significant portion of the work. The majority of the plates are after Ferdinand Bauer, who with his brother Franz "may well claim to be the greatest of all botanical draughtsmen. Their skill in execution of detail is miraculous, yet they never lost sight of the wood for the trees; everything is understood, balanced, controlled ... The splendid illustrations to [the present work] ... deeply impressed Goethe ... The botanical draughtsman was no longer the mere recorder of floral beauty; he now had the more difficult task of serving both Art and Science" ( Great Flower Books, p.37). The earliest edition of Lambert's important monograph, though with the fewest number of plates, was published in two volumes between 1803 and 1824. It then appeared in various formats with varying numbers of plates, including the present second edition, until the Bohn issue of 1842. In many ways, the present second edition is the most desirable, with the third volume published for the first time and containing the full complement of plates, with the significant additional advantage of the presence of original watercolours. Great Flower Books (1990) p.111; Henrey III, 921 and 922; cf. H.W. Renkema & J. Ardagh 'Aylmer Bourke Lambert and his "Description of the genus Pinus"' in Journal Linnaean Society London, Botany (1930) vol.48, pp.439-466; Stafleu & Cowan II, 4145; De Belder sale lot 201.

        French Revolution: A History

      1837 - (FRENCH REVOLUTION) CARLYLE, Thomas. The French Revolution: A History. London: James Fraser, 1837. Three volumes. Octavo, early 20th-century full tan calf gilt, gilt armorial centerpieces, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase. $4500.First edition of this classic history of the French Revolution, a major influence on Dickens’ Tale of Two Cities, handsomely bound in calf-gilt by Henderson & Bisset of Edinburgh.“Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular ‘tract for the times’ and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracy… The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colorful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leading revolutionaries. The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, molded popular conception of the French Revolution down to the present day” (PMM 304). Carlyle himself triumphantly declared upon the completion of this work, “You have not had for a hundred years any book that comes more direct and flamingly from the heart of a living man” (DNB). Bound with half titles. Interiors clean; a touch of rubbing to joints, expert reinforcement to inner hinges of Volume I. An about-fine and handsome set of this increasingly scarce first edition.

        Entrance to the Chapel of Ferdinand & Isabella.

      London. Hodgson & Graves. [ 1837]. Tinted lithograph with handcolor, mounted on thick card as issued, , image 16 x 11 inches on sheet size 22 x 17 3/4 inches. Overall soiling to support card, a few faint foxing spots in image, image overall bright and clean. This is the title page lithograph from the deluxe first edition of David Roberts' first published set of views "Picturesque Sketches in Spain Taken During the Years 1832 & 1833." Delicately handcolored colored at the time of publication, this edition, which was issued in a portfolio, cost more than double the standard edition. The plates were lithographed by many of the most talented lithographers of the day, this by T. Allom. Abbey (#152) notes that Roberts in fact worked on every stone, and that the views had an enormous sale, going through many printings. This view shows the gorgeous detail of the chapel entrance located in Granada, Spain. In the standard edition of the publication the wording of work's title was printed on the entrance door: in this deluxe edition this feature is not present, allowing the image to stand alone in its magnificence.

        Woodland Gleanings: By the Author of "The Sentiment of Flowers." With Numerous Illustrations.

      Sm. London: Charles Tilt, (1837). Sm. 8vo, original full dark green morocco, backstrip gilt-lettered and with five raised bands, covers elaborately bordered in blind, rear cover with gilt-stamped image of the "Cowthorpe Oak," gilt edges, [iv], xl, 188, [4(Index)], [4(ads)] pp. 64 hand-colored plates, with tissue guards. Signed in ink on front free endpaper: "Frederick H. Ashworth / February 2d 1839." Front cover replaced with new near-replica in matching morocco & border but lacking oak image, with original pastedown; color frontispiece lacking tissue guard; dampstain affecting tops of a few tissue guards; overall a very good, fresh copy of the de-luxe issue, well restored. First Edition. The text of this appealing volume is more literary than botanical, and the highly attractive plates lack scientific precision; but the result is delightful. No wonder that the Magazine of Natural History (London; Volume I [new series] ([837], p. 270) recommended it "to those who have yet to select a work for their summer companion or friend." The book was issued in cloth and in this elegant morocco binding, and it appears that it was also issued with a choice of 64 color plates, 32 color plates, or all plates uncolored. The reprints of 1838, 1853, & 1865 seem to have been entirely uncolored. OCLC locates just seven copies of this edition, and COPAC adds two more. Despite the miniature size of the plates, many copies have probably been eviscerated by breakers. This copy was likely signed by Frederick Harold Ashworth (1822-1865), a barrister in Salford, Lancashire. [Freeman, British Natural History Books, 3799, a complete hash.)

        Giannetto opera che ottenne dalla Società  fiorentina dell'istruzione elementare il premio promesso all'autore del più bel libro di lettura morale ad uso de' fanciulli

      Pietro Ostinelli 1837 Tre volumi in 16mo (voll. I e III cm 18, vol. II cm 16,5), il primo ed il terzo volume sono in brossura editoriale stampata ed intonsi con barbe (manca il piatto anteriore del III vol.), mentre il secondo volume è rilegato in mezza pelle dell'epoca con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, piatti in carta colorata con cornice in oro, pp. XVI, 196 + antiporta incisa, pp. (4), 247, (5) + pp. VII, (1 bianca), 341, (15, di cui 2 bianche). L'antiporta del secondo volume è protetta da velina e rappresenta un fiore di giglio, un ramo di prezzemolo ed uno di cicuta. A parte alcune lievi ingialliture e fioriture sparse (più forti nel secondo volume), ottima copia conservata entro astuccio di cartone marmorizzato e camicie in mezza pelle rossa recanti il titolo dell'opera in oro sui dorsi.RARISSIMA PRIMA EDIZIONE. «Il 23 dicembre del 1835 la "Società  formata in Firenze per la diffusione del metodo di reciproco insegnamento"? era chiamata ad assegnare il premio di 1000 lire all'autore di "un'opera originale italiana la quale serva ad un tempo d'esercizio di lettura e d'istruzione morale per i fanciulli"?. Dei quattro manoscritti pervenuti, due si imposero alla Commissione, l'uno era "diviso in tre parti intitolate Il buon fanciullo, Il buon giovanetto, Il galantuomo"?, mentre l'altro aveva per titolo Giannetto. Ancora manoscritte e siglate con un motto, le Letture giovanili di Cesare Cantù e il Giannetto di Luigi Alessandro Parravicini si trovavano cosà­, per la prima volta, di fronte: e per mezzo secolo, e piຠoltre ancora, avrebbero continuato a venir avvertiti come due diversi modelli di manualetto popolare, di libro sussidiario per i fanciulli avviati all'alfabetizzazione. Il premio fiorentino era indivisibile, e fu assegnato al Parravicini, un enorme consenso di pubblico, e il succedersi di edizioni sia autorizzate dagli autori sia abusive, corrispose ad entrambe le opere.I moderati della Società  fiorentina dovevano aver percepito nell'implacabile moralismo cattolico di Cantù un'ipoteca autoritaria e conservatrice che Parravicini aveva schivato: il suo richiamo al buon senso quotidiano e il suo innocuo enciclopedismo, scevro di richiami ideologici, gli aprivano ora un credito e un'udienza, che avrebbe a lungo continuato a godere. I due scrittori non erano amici, né tali sarebbero mai diventati, ma avevano in comune la provenienza: entrambi lombardi, milanese il Parravicini, brianzolo il Cantù, erano comaschi d'adozione. Il primo dirigeva la Scuola elementare maggiore di Como sin dal 1826, il secondo aveva insegnato in quel ginnasio quattro anni, dal 1828 al 1832, si era fatto storico della città  e della diocesi, e delle tradizioni lariane doveva restare cultore. Nel 1835 le loro strade si erano ormai definitivamente divise: Parravicini non perdeva occasione per ribadire il suo zelo di pubblico funzionario, Cantù dopo undici mesi di detenzione era stato rimosso dalla cattedra e viveva lavorando per i giornali e i librai» (M. Berengo, Appunti su Luigi Alessandro Parravicini. La metodica austriaca della Restaurazione, in: "Omaggio a Piero Treves"?, a cura di A. Mastrocinque, Padova 1983, p. 1). L'opera si compone di cinque parti. La prima riguarda l'uomo sia da un punto di vista anatomico che da un punto di vista comportamentale. La seconda parte tratta dei mestieri, delle arti e delle scienze. La terza rigurda la terra da un punto di vista geografico e naturalistico. La quarta riporta esempi quotidiani di virtù ad istruzione dei fanciulli. La quinta e ultima parte, divisa a sua volta in ventisette giornate, narra episodi patriotici e "morali"? tratti dalla storia italiana, dai re di Roma a Napoleone Bonaparte. L.A. Parravicini, pedagogista seguace di A. Rosmini e di J. H. Pestalozzi, fu direttore scolastico a Como e a Venezia, dopo un'esperienza come direttore di corsi di metodo nel Canton Ticino, che gli ispirarono un interessante Manuale di pedagogia e di didattica (1842 - '45). La sua fama è tuttavia soprattutto legata al Giannetto, vero e proprio best - seller per ragazzi dell'epoca. Lo stesso Collodi si occupò di modernizzare e migliorare l'opera e nel 1876 diede alle stampe la sua revisione intitolata Giannettino. ICCU, ITICCURAV271788. CLIO, V, p. 3451. D.

        Strafford: An Historical Tragedy

      Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman, London 1837 - Original brown wrappers with original printed paper label on cover. 132pp. Side and bottom edges uncut. With 4pp advertisements at end dated April 15, 1837. A superlative copy, the best copy we have seen in many years. The paper covering on spine is almost completely intact, hinges are integral, contents clean and bright. A near fine copy of Brownings early work, his first play and perhaps his most original: (Michael Peverett) ". the one that is least like a closet drama; five acts and numerous speaking parts. It played for five nights in 1837, with Macready in the title role." Though the performance was critically, rather than well received, it was well attended and certainly contributed to Browning's early popularity and respect in literary circles.

Mary Russell Mitford wrote to an Irish friend, 'All the boys and girls talk [Dickens's] fun ?- the boys in the street; and yet those who are of the higher taste like it the most … Lord Denman studies Pickwick on the bench while the jury are deliberating'" (ODNB).

        Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      1837 - DICKENS, Charles. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. London: Chapman & Hall, 1836-37. Thick octavo, early 20th-century full green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4200.First book edition, mixed first and early issue, of one of Dickens’ greatest works, with 43 illustrations by Seymour and Phiz, extra-illustrated with a complete suite of 32 engraved plates, most by Thomas Onwyn (who has signed many of the plates as "Sam Weller"), handsomely bound in full morocco-gilt by Zaehnsdorf."From a literary standpoint the supremacy of this book has been… firmly established… It was written by Dickens when he was twenty-four and its publication placed the author on a solid foundation from which he never was removed…. It is quite probable that only Shakespeare's Works, the Bible and perhaps the English Prayer Book, exceed "Pickwick Papers" in circulation" (Eckel, 17). "Never was a book received with more rapturous enthusiasm than that which greeted the Pickwick Papers!" (Allibone I:500). Pickwick would be the first volume in which Dickens was acknowledged as the author, rather than using his pen name, "Boz." With 43 illustrations by R. Seymour and Phiz, including frontispiece and vignette title page, and the scarce suppressed plates by Buss (at pages 69 and 74 in Volume I); plate intended for opposite page 334 has been bound opposite page 34. With six of seven first-issue points. Plates in mixed states. Originally issued in 20 parts from April 1836 to November 1837. Smith I:3. Gimbel A15. "During the initial publication of Pickwick Papers several artists sold 'extra' illustrations to accompany each number… Additionally, many later editions of Pickwick Papers contain new illustrations; other later editions contain new illustrations along with reproductions of the illustrations from the first edition… Pickwick Papers has a long and complex illustration history" (University of Washington). This copy testifies to the book's popularity among artists; the 32 extra illustrations (with 21 by Thomas Onwyn) were issued in eight monthly parts in 1837. Text and plates fine, mild toning to handsome morocco binding. A near-fine copy, very desirable extra-illustrated. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Le texte parut pour la première fois dans le "Journal des débats" sous forme de feuilletons en 1837, excitant la jalousie de Balzac, qui répliqua par "Splendeurs et Misères des courtisanes". Puis il fut progressivement publié en huit volumes jusqu?en mars 1838 chez Ambroise Dupont.Tout comme Faust, le baron François-Armand de Luizzi vend son âme au diable contre la satisfaction de tous ses désirs et n?échappera à la damnation qu?à condition de se prouver qu?il a connu le bonheur. Soulié peint, au travers des personnages trompeurs respirant la bonté et l?innocence, un tableau de la société dans ce qu?elle a de plus hideux, de plus atroce : le crime, l?inceste, l?adultère, la fausseté.

Als Kronprinz, an den Philosophiehistoriker Christian August Brandis (1790-1867), als Kabinettsrat im Dienst seines Bruders König Otto von Griechenland: "Mein lieber Herr Kabinetsrath von Brandis, mit wahrem Vergnügen habe ich Ihren letzten Brief aus Athen erhalten, und darin alles das Gute gelesen, was Sie mir in Bezug auf meinen geliebten Bruder den König mittheilten, mit einigem Bedauern vernahm ich, daß Sie leider manche gerechte Gründe zur Unzufriedenheit mit Ihrem Aufenthalte in Griechenland [haben], und sogar sich mit dem Gedanken beschäftigten es vielleicht zu verlassen. Als ein Unglück für meinen Bruder und folglich für sein schönes Land möchte ich es betrachten, sollte dieses geschehen, da Sie Herr Kabinetsrath, zuversichtlich kann ich es sagen, der Mann sind, die geistige Wiedergeburt meines Bruders zu bewirken, daß, um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, es wünschenswerth, ja selbst unumgänglich nöthig ist, daß Sie sich hierüber vertrauensvoll mit dem Herrn Präsidenten von Rudhart benehmen und über die beyderseits einzuschlagenden Weg verständigen, so habe ich deßhalb an ihn geschrieben, und ich hoffe er wird nicht anstehen sich Ihnen zu nähern, so wie ich von Ihrer Seite überzeugt bin daß Sie ihm in dieser Beziehung freundlich entgegenkommen werden; sollte Herr von Rudhart vielleicht zaudern, so ersuche ich Sie, sich auf das hier Gesagte szützend und berufend, dann die Initiative zu erfreifen. Ich ersuche Sie dringend der schönen Aufgabe zu Liebe in Ihrer segnungsvollen Stellung auszuharren [.] Die Königinn meine Mutter läßt Sie namentlich ersuchen Herrn von Rudhart auf alle Punkte im Wesen meines Bruders aufmerksam zu machen, worauf zu wirken für ersprießlich finden!" - Das Schreiben kam zu spät: Ignaz von Rudhart, nach dem Sturz des Grafen Armansperg am 14. Februar 1837 griechischer Ministerpräsident, war bereits am 20. XII. 1837 zurückgetreten; wenige Monate später sollte er auf der Rückreise in Triest sterben. - Spätere Numerierung "450" in blauer Tinte.

Royal-8vo (205 x 125mm). pp. vi, 682; 548, (1); viii, 476; xvi, 623, 24, with 52 engraved plates of which 43 beautifully handcoloured. Recent half calf, spines with red and green gilt lettered labels. The first 2 volumes were published by Walckenaer and the remaining 2 volumes jointly with Gervais. "Over a period of a decade, 1837-47, Walckenaer produced a four volume 'Histoire naturelle des Insectes Aptères', which occupies a permanent place in the history because of the large number of still-valid genera which were first described in it" (Savory, Spiders, men, and scorpions p. 54). The present copy has the plates in coloured state. The coloured issue is very rare, and the 9 plain plates were never coloured. The fine stipple-engraved plates give exact details of the depicted insects and are superbly handcoloured. The work forms a part of the series 'Suites à Buffon'.Hagen II, 251; Horn-Schenkling 23035; Nissen ZBI, 4319. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Pterodactylus]. Beschreibung eines neuentdeckten Ornithocephalus, nebst allgemeinen Bemerkungen über die Organisation dieser Gattung.

      München, 1837 (Separatum aus: Abhandlungen der Mathematisch-Physikalischen Klasse der Königlich Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften; 2).. Quart. Unter Rückenfalz geheftet. S. 163-198, mit einer farbigen lithographischen Tafel. Die ersten zwei Seiten gleichmässig gebräunt, die Tafel mit kleiner Feuchtigkeitsspur im unteren unbedruckten Rand, sonst wohlerhalten. Erste Ausgabe. Nicht in Nissen (ZBI), Giebel (Thesaurus Ornith.) und BMC (NH). - Selten. - Beschreibung eines überaus gut erhaltenen Fossils (bzw. des Abdruckes d. Fossils im Gestein) aus der Sammlung d. Forstrates Koch in Regensburg. Wagner benutzt hier die Stammesbegriffe Ornithocephalus (nach Sömmerring) und Pterodactylus (nach Cuvier) als Synonym. Die taxonomische Zuordnung des Fossils ist bis heute heftig umstritten: Während das Fossil lange Zeit als Nachweis einer der nur zwei als sicher unterscheidbar angenommenen Arten der Gattung Pterodactyli galt, wurden seit ca. 2010 mehrere Arbeiten veröffentlicht, die den taxonomischen Status des Fossils neu diskutieren.
