        Common Curlew; Numenius arquata (Lath)

      London 1837 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. 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. This hand-colored lithograph, Common Curlew; Numenius arquata (Lath), measures 14.5" x 21.25" and is in very good condition with few faint foxing marks throughout. Also called the Eurasian Curlew, this wading bird is expertly hand colored in rich shades of brown and taupe. Fine lines detail each feather and create intricate feather patterns the length of the body. The extremely long bill of this bird is accented as it extends across the lithograph.

        The History of Rome

      - London - Samuel Bentley 1837 - Acollection of the History of Rome by B. G. Niebuhr. Complete in five volumes. The complete set is scarce. Translated by Julius Sharles Hare and Connop Thirwall, Fellows of Trinity College, Cambridge. Third Edition, Revised. With fold-out maps. Barthold Georg Niebuhr (27 August 1776 2 January 1831) was a Danish-German statesman and historian who became Germany's leading historian of Ancient Rome and a founding father of modern scholarly historiography. By 1810 Niebuhr was inspiring German patriotism in students at the University of Berlin by his analysis of Roman economics and government. Historians generally view Niebuhr as a leader of the Romantic Era and symbol of German national spirit that emerged after the defeat at Jena. But he was also deeply rooted in the classical spirit of the Age of Enlightenment in his intellectual presuppositions, his use of philologic analysis, and his emphasis on both general and particular phenomena in history. Condition: In full calf leather bindings with gilt embellishment to the spines and gilt borders to the boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Some of the spine labels are missing. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with some scattered light foxing. There is a bookplate to the front pastedown in all volumes. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1837. With forty-three illustrations, by R. Seymour and Phiz. Octavo (212 × 133 mm). Original purple pebble-grain morocco, boards blind stamped, spine lettered in gilt, edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. 43 engraved plates by H. K. Browne. Boards rubbed, spine faded, a short closed tear to half-title, edges darkened, endpapers spotted and stained, plates oxidised. A very good copy. First edition in book form, publisher's deluxe binding. The contemporary leather-bound editions of Dickens are not described in detail by bibliographers, though copies such as the present are occasionally seen in trade, variously described as either publisher's presentation or deluxe bindings. There is evidence from contemporary records (see Robert L. Patten, Charles Dickens and his Publishers, p. 101) that the early novels were available in full morocco at a higher price than the cloth bindings, and in the absence of a publisher's presentation inscription, it seems prudent to claim no more than that this is a deluxe binding. That it is a publisher's binding, rather than a bespoke period binding, is indicated by the blind-stamping to the boards, which is identical to that found on the cloth case of the third edition of Sketches by Boz published by Chapman and Hall at the same time. The grain of the leather is the same pebbled finish seen in other deluxe publisher's bindings on the early Dickens titles and the yellow-coated endpapers are identical to those found in many of the original cloth cases. Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens's first novel, transformed the obscure journalist into England's most famous author in a matter of months. The first monthly instalment was issued in an edition of 1,000 copies in April 1836. The book became a publishing sensation after the introduction of Sam Weller in chapter 10, the fourth instalment, issued in July 1836, after which the publishers reprinted the earlier instalments so that readers could catch up. For that reason, even in parts, copies are almost impossible to find in uniform first state. By the time the book was issued in November 1837, many textual corrections had been made. Booksellers often list numerous (and confusing) text points that might conceivably apply to a perfect set of Pickwick Papers as originally issued in parts, but all these points could never be found together in the issues in book form. The serial was originally intended to be primarily a vehicle for the cartoons of Robert Seymour, until he committed suicide after the first number was published. Robert William Buss then took over, but he was inexperienced in steel engraving and had to be fired. The final choice, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), was to be Dickens's chosen collaborator for the next two decades. Phiz illustrated parts IV?-XX, re-engraved the Seymour plates and entirely replaced the Buss plates for later issues. The later issue plates, as here, do not contain page locations; they are signed, titled, and have the small engraved Chapman and Hall imprint below the caption.

        Leitfaden zur Nordischen Alterthumskunde, herausgegeben von der königlichen Gesellschaft für Nordische Altherthumskunde.

      Kopenhagen, 1837. 8vo. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. A very light damp stain to hinges and spine cracked vertically down the middle, but still tight and cords intact. An excellent clean and fresh copy. (4), 108 pp.. Scarce first German edition of this milestone publication, which laid the foundation of modern archaeology and transformed it into an exact science. With this seminal publication, Thomsen was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods, and with it he became the originator of the three-age system (the division into Stone Age - Bronze Age - Iron Age), which is "the basic chronology that now underpins the archaeology of most of the Old World" (Rowley-Conwy: From Genesis to Prehistory, p.1). This foundational work altered our understanding of our world and our place in it and contains the first use of "culture" in an archaeological context."Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, (born Dec. 29, 1788, Copenhagen, Den.-died May 21, 1865, Copenhagen), Danish archaeologist who deserves major credit for developing the three-part system of prehistory, naming the Stone, Bronze, and Iron ages for the successive stages of man's technological development in Europe. His tripartite scheme brought the first semblance of order to prehistory and formed the basis for chronological schemes developed for other areas of the globe by succeeding generations of archaeologists." (Encycl. Britt.).Up until the beginning of the 19th century, our understanding of antiquities had been very loose and fumbling. Studying the artifacts, earlier archaeologists had used a great deal of imagination, especially when adapting information from written sources to the objects. Only when Thomsen enters the scene, this approach changes. He is the first to focus the investigation upon the artifacts themselves. Quickly realizing that this approach must be the only way forward, he soon distinguished clearly between objects, both similar and different, and established what belonged together in time and where there were chronological differences. He was among the first to differentiate between history that could be studied through written sources and prehistory which could only be studied through material culture. He realized - as the first - that in order to interpret findings of prehistoric objects, one would have to know their source and the context in which they were found - thus establishing the foundation for modern excavation technique. He trained the great archaeologist J.J.A. Worsaae and sent him on excavation expeditions to acquire artifacts for ethnographic museum that he had founded and thus also founded Danish archaeology. Thomsen was the first to perceive typologies of grave goods, grave types, methods of burial, pottery and decorative motifs, and to assign these types to layers found in excavation, thus combining our different sources of knowledge to establish certainty. When, in 1836, the Royal Society of Northern Antiquaries published Thomsen's illustrated contribution to "Guide to Scandinavian Archaeology" (i.e. the present publication), in which he put forth his chronology for the first time, together with comments about typology and stratigraphy, Thomsen already had an international reputation. But this publication gave him more than that - it made him the founder of modern archaeology and arguably the most influential archaeologist of all times. In 1816 Thomsen had been appointed head of "antiquarian" collections, which later developed into the National Museum of Denmark. It was while organizing and classifying the antiquities for exhibition that he discovered how much more sense it would make to present them chronologically, and so he did, using what is now known as the "three-age system". Proposing that prehistory had advanced from an age of stone tools, to ages of tools made from bronze and iron was not in itself a novel idea, but no previous proposals allowed for the dating of artifacts (which Thomsen's system did for the first time) and they were all presented as systems of evolution. Refining the idea of stone-bronze-iron phases, Thomsen turned it into a chronological system by seeing which artifacts occurred with which other artifacts in closed finds. In this way, he was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods. It is this seminal achievement that led to his being credited as the originator of the three-age system.He provided for the first time a solid empirical basis for the system that ever since the present publication has laid at the foot of all archaeological research. He showed that artifacts could be classified into types and that these types varied over time in ways that correlated with the predominance of stone, bronze or iron implements and weapons. In this way he turned the Three-age System from being an evolutionary scheme based on intuition and general knowledge into a system of relative chronology supported by archaeological evidence."His published and personal advice to Danish archaeologists concerning the best methods of excavation produced immediate results that not only verified his system empirically but placed Denmark in the forefront of European archaeology for at least a generation. He became a national authority when C.C Rafn, secretary of the Kongelige Nordiske Oldskriftselskab ("Royal Society of Northern Antiquaries"), published his principal manuscript in "Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed" ("Guide to Scandinavian Archaeology") in 1836."This groundbreaking publication was immediately translated into German (published the following year, 1837), in which form it reached a wide audience, influencing the archaeologists of all of Europe. In 1848, it was published in English and became highly influential on the development of archaeology theory and practice in Great Britain and the United States.In 1849 Thomsen founded the world's first ethnografic museum, which continued to contribute significantly to the development of modern archaeology."Throughout the course of the nineteenth century growing amounts of archaeological material were being recovered as the vastly expanding engineering activities of the Industrial Revolution were transforming Central and Western Europe into the "workshop of the world." Indeed, much of the popular appeal of archaeology in early Victorian times lay in its seeming demonstration that this contemporary technological advancement, which both intrigued and delighted the middle classes, was no mere accident but the acceleration of a tendency for "progress" which was innate in humankind. This evidence that cultural evolution as opposed to degeneration from an original state of grace had been a significant feature of human history made archaeology pre-eminently a science of progress. Within the context of the history of the discipline, however, the birth of this "scientific archaeology", as distinct from the antiquarianism of earlier times, is generally associated with the unfolding of the "Three Age System" and the pioneering work of C.J. Thomsen.While in the past a few archaeologists had attempted to subdivide prehistoric materials into various temporal segments, it was Thomsen who first envisaged, and applied, on the basis of archaeological evidence, a systematic classification of antiquities according to the criteria of material use and form which could be correlated with a sequence of temporal periods: the Ages of Stone, Bronze, and Iron, familiar to every student of archaeology for the last hundred years. The novelty of this approach, however, did not lie in the concept of technological development gleaned from his familiarity with the conjectural history of the Enlightenment, or in his assumption of a sequence of Stone, Bronze, or Iron Ages, itself a variation of Lucretius' popular model. Rather, it lay in his employment of "seriational principles" acquired from his extensive knowledge of numismatics, which he used to combine evidence concerning technology, grave goods, along with the shape and decoration of various artefacts into an internally consistent developmental sequence. Though Thomsen's Museum of Northern Antiquities in Denmark had arranged its collection of artefacts in accordance with this new system as early as 1819, the first written account of his research was not set out in print until the "Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed" ("Guide Book to Northern/Nordic Antiquities") was published in 1836. While prior to Thomsen's work, thinking about antiquities in both Europe and the United States bas both intellectually fragmented and essentially speculative, the publication of the "Ledetraad" and its translation into German a year later unified archaeological studies by providing scholars with an exemplar or "paradigm". For, while previously antiquarians and indeed classical archaeologists, who were interested in what are now recognized to be prehistoric remains, tended to look to written records and/or oral traditions to provide a historical context for their finds, it was Thomsen who liberated archaeologists from this restrictive assumption through the creation of a carefully controlled chronology which allowed for the comprehensive study of those periods in history for which NO written records were available. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Thomsen's system established itself as THE system, as his basic classification of artefacts, arranged in periods by virtue of an analogy with the form and function of tools in his own day, was modified an elaborated upon by, among others, Worsaae, de Mortillet and John Lubbock."

        History of South America and Mexico; comprising their discovery, geography, politics, commerce and revolutions A geographical and historical view of Texas, with a detailed account of the Texian Revolution and War.

      Hartford: H. Huntington, 1837. - 2 volumes in one. 8vo., (8 x 5 inches). 2 letterpress title pages; additional engraved vignette title page (occasional spotting throughout). 2 fine folding engraved maps of "Mexico and Texas" and "South America," with original hand color in full (marginal chip, not affecting the image, a few spots, some newer creases), engraved frontispiece "Battle of Jacinto," 2 engraved plates (a bit spotted). Contemporary American tree calf, the smooth spine lettered and decorated in gilt (extremities a bit worn). First edition, second printing with the additional material related to Texas by Gov. E. M. Pease's father from on-the-spot reports of the Texas Revolution. The first edition published in 1825, was a much smaller work, covering only the revolutions in Latin America, and with no Texas content. The important map of Texas is the first issue and shows all of present-day Texas in bold pink hand-coloring, extends to 38° North, and does not yet locate Houston, Lynchburg, Liberty, San Augustine, Rio Grande City, and Teran, which are present in later issues. "This volume was originally published in 1827 [sic] by Connecticut senator and author John Milton Niles. A new edition in 1837 added an account of the Revolution by Lorain Pease of Connecticut, whose son Elijah Pease supported Texas independence, fought in the Revolution, and later served as the state's governor" (Tyler, "Prints and Printmakers of Texas"). "This is an excellent contemporary account of the Texas Revolution and its beginnings [with] reprintings of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, Burleson's report on the taking of Bexar in December, 1835, the Travis letter of February 24, 1836, and several other reports and documents. One of these is a reprinting (pp. 329-335), which I do not recollect having seen elsewhere, of the report of Benjamin H. Holland, Captain of the 2d Company of Artillery, on the Fannin Massacre. The value of this contemporary account, compiled by the father of one of the participants, has been overlooked" (Streeter 1285). Hill, page 212; Howes N156.

        The Felonry of New South Wales : Being a faithful picture of the real romance of life in Botany Bay

      London: For the Author, Whaley and Co, 1837. Octavo, with a folding map of the Town of Sydney as frontispiece (repaired), bound in later half calf. First edition of this controversial book, published in London, and unanimously attacked in Australia as frivolous, slanderous, and prejudiced.The 1830s saw increased friction in New South Wales between colonial conservatives and the liberal governor, Sir Richard Bourke, who introduced a number of reforms that endeared him to the Emancipists, notably a new law allowing former convicts to serve as jurors and criminal cases to be tried by civil juries. Bourke retaliated to the attacks of Mudie and other opponents by depriving them of their Magistracies: "This loss of caste was too much for Mudie, who sold up and returned to England vowing revenge. It came in the form of a hastily written book... 'Felonry', Mudie explained, was his own word, encompassing all of the 'criminal population' of the colony, including the Emancipists, no matter what their wealth or professional standing. It corresponded, he said, to the orders of the old world - 'the tribe of appellatives distinguished by the same termination, as peasantry, tenantry, yeomanry, gentry...&c.' Such people, he argued, were 'for ever infamous... infamous in law... unworthy of future trust'; they and their offspring should be disenfranchised forever..." (Robert Hughes, "The Fatal Shore", 1987, p. 330). Mudie's word has duly made its way into the Oxford English Dictionary.In 1840, Mudie foolishly returned to Sydney, but apparently not sufficient time had elapsed; the son of one of his victims publicly horsewhipped him. From the collection of Robert Edwards.

        Falco Candicans [Greenland Gyrfalcon]

      London: [by the Author, 1837. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after J. Wolf and H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. (Slightly trimmed along the right side). A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood). This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This improvement is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered...it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

        Autograph note signed to Viscount Cole, February 17, 1837

      1837. <p>1 page, plus address on verso. 181 x 176 mm. Small hole where seal was broken, otherwise fine.<p>Autograph note signed from geologist and paleontologist William Buckland, author of Reliquiae Diluvianae (1823) and the first professor of geology at Oxford University, to his former student William Willoughby Cole (1807-86), known by his courtesty title of Viscount Cole until 1840, when he assumed the title of third Earl of Enniskillen. Cole, an enthusiastic amateur geologist and paleontologist, amassed one of the world&#39;s largest collections of fossil fishes, which is now at the British Museum. He served as an M.P. in the House of Commons from 1831 until his elevation to the peerage. </p><p>Buckland&#39;s note reads "I inclose a few letters which at your first leisure I will thank you to frank for myself and Mrs. Buckland." As a Member of Parliament Cole enjoyed franking privileges (free postage), which he would have routinely extended to all of his friends and colleagues as was customary at the time. Buckland would have appreciated this service, since postage in England was expensive prior to the introduction of the Penny Post in 1840. </p>
