        Celeste as the Maid of Cashmere

      Celeste as the Maid of Cashmere. [London: Hodgson and Graves, November, 1837]. After a painting by E.T. Parris; Lithographed by A. Dick. Octagonal 8 x 15\" (plate size), 8 1/2 x 17 1/2\" (sheet size). Original lithograph on paper. Mounted on stiff paper, trimmed to 1/4\" of left margin, lacking publisher\'s logo at bottom. Beautifully framed. Mademe Celeste, (Anastasie Celeste des Rousselles. b. 1810, Marcilly-la-Campagne, France; d. 1882, Paris). According to Nancy Reynolds, Celeste\'s \"great popularity rested mainly on her eloquent performances in melodrama, in which she was particularly noted for her command of gesture.\" Although criticized by Binney as a popular but not a \"professional\" dancer, Celeste, according to Parmenia Migel, performed valiantly all through Europe and was \"the most beloved performer ever to tour the United States... and had the distinction of being America\'s first Sylphide.\" One of the most famous episodes of dance in 19th century America, and subject of several satirical engravings, was when Celeste in 1836 was presented to President Andrew Jackson in his chambers for a private performance.

        The Naval History of Great Britain, From the Declaration of War by France in 1793, to the Accession of George IV. A New Edition, with Considerable Additions and Notes, and an Account of the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino.

      London, Richard Bentley, 1837 - 6 volumes, octavo (2137× 133 mm). Contemporary mid-blue hard-grained morocco, marbled boards, edges and endpapers, title direct to the spine, low bands with gilt helical twist roll, three-master tools in the first and sixth compartments, fouled anchors in third and fifth, single blind rule to corner and spine edges. Spines a little sunned, mild shelf-wear, light toning, else a sound and handsome set. 24 portraits, 38 battle-plans in the text, 28 folding tables. A "monument of accuracy - it has stood the test of time and remains the best account of the naval side of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars" (Kemp, The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, p. 425). First conceived of when he was held prisoner in America during the War of 1812 the Naval History is a remarkable work. Working under the motto "Verité sans Peur", James set himself standards of inclusiveness and accuracy extraordinary for the 19th century. His aim was to compile ". an exact account of every operation of naval war during the period named. He consulted not only published works, especially the official narratives, both British and French, but also the logs of the ships, and, whenever possible, the participants themselves" (ODNB). Successively mined by Forester and O'Brian for incident and colour, this well-written history is not only essential reference for the period, but makes excellent reading. NMM, V, 2158.

They are Carlyle\'s book [offered here] and the \'History of the French Revolution\' by Michelet. 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. Scottish puritanism and German romanticism were his lodestars; \'History is the essence of innumerable biographies\' was his historical creed. 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 Englihs-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded popular conceptions of the French Revolution down to the present day\" (PMM).Printing and the Mind of Man 304.HBS 65348.$5,000

      Paris, Baillière, 1837. - in-8. 134pp. 1f. Broché, couverture moderne. Edition Originale de cet important mémoire lu à l'occasion du débat qui opposa, à l'Académie de Médecine de Paris, les partisans de la statistique médicale et ses détracteurs. Benigno Juan Isidro Risueño d'Amador (1802-1849) était un médecin espagnol, né à Cartagena (Murcia) et professeur à la faculté de médecine de Montpellier; il fut l'un des premiers défenseurs de l'homéopathie en France, et c'est lui qui prit la tête du mouvement contre l'emploi des probabilités en médecine, dont cet ouvrage recueille les arguments en faveur de "la méthode inductive". "La théorie dite des probabilités semble renfermer des difficultés et des contradictions logiques peut-être insolubles, même dans la spéculation mathématique pure". Références à Pascal, Bernouilli, Leibnitz, Euler, Condorcet, Laplace, etc. Bon exemplaire.

        New South Wales; its Present State and Future Prospects

      London: D. Walther, 1837. Octavo, 314 pp.; contemporary green moire cloth, slightly worn, spine slightly sunned, leather spine label, gilt lettered title on upper board. Exceptionally rare: a special pre-publication issue of Macarthur&#39;s New South Wales; its Present State and Future Prospects. This prime association copy bears the bookplate of Sir William Molesworth, chairman of the historic Select Committee on Transportation of 1837, to which Macarthur gave evidence. Apparently this advance issue was produced for the members of the committee. This copy was subsequently in the Bonython collection. Although attributed to James Macarthur, the fourth son of John Macarthur, only the Preface and the chapter on voluntary emigration were actually written by him. The remainder of the book was written at Macarthur&#39;s instruction by Edward Edwards, who was largely responsible for the development of the public library system in Great Britain; and who was paid eighty pounds for the work. It includes chapters on colonial policy, transportation, the administration of justice and local government, jury law, education and religious instruction, and the general resources of the colony and of its future prospects. The appendices include the petitions and official papers in support. The collation of this special copy varies from the final published form: it consists of the appendices, but does not include the final three leaves of additional statistics, and with the "List of Appendix", five leaves, moved from the beginning to the end, slightly altered and printed on lighter paper. Pages 103-106 are also on this lighter paper and without the press signature present in the complete work, and the printer&#39;s colophon now appears on page 313.

        UTILITARIAN, / [large cut, 5 x 8 1/2 inches, of a beautiful stallion being held by a groom with three horses and farm buildings amidst rolling hills and a stand of trees in the background] / By Eclipse, out of a thorough-bred Roebuck mare, possessing all the useful quali- / ties, and fine action for the road / [followed by 11 lines of text describing the horse and setting out terms for him to stand at stud]. Signed in type at the end "John H. Cocke."

      John H. Cocke nd [1837, determined by the horses named in the text], [Bremo, Fluvanna Co., Virginia] - Broadside, 17 1/4 x 11 inches, employing a large bold type for the one-word head and printed on course brown paper; the wood engraving is signed in the image "Anderson." The horse stood at Cocke's Fluvanna County, Virginia, plantation, Bremo, on the James River. Not in American Imprints through 1846. Not in Hummel or his "More Virginia Broadsides." OCLC locates one copy (Virginia). Unusually and rather uniformly freckled with tiny spots of foxing, an attractive Virginia stud broadside. (#5354) John Hartwell Cocke (1780-1866), whose ancestors first appeared in Virginia shortly after the settling of Jamestown "inherited a fortune as well as refinement and native ability from his forebears, and after attending William & Mary College (1794-99), he chose the life of a country gentleman at 'Bremo' in Fluvanna County, to which he removed about 1803 progressive and prescient in all things, he promoted new agricultural mehods, the founding of agricultural societies, the development of waterways and steam navigation, and various public improvements. During the War of 1812, [as a newly minted brigadier general] . he commanded the Virginia soldiery guarding Richmond slavery he denounced as a curse to commonwealth and nation a friend to popular education, he sponsored sounder primary and secondary school systems . his contribution [to the development of the University of Virginia] was subordinate only to that of of Thomas Jefferson and Joseph C. Cabell conscientious, tenacious of opinion, boldly independent, and devoid of partisanship, sectarian or regional he was a zealous reformer the causes which he supported indicate him to have been one of the most remarkable Virginians of his generation in power of foresight, a pioneer of modern social reform" (DAB). For amplification of Cocke's military service, see the "War of 1812" item in this list.

        Glossy Ibis

      [by the Author, London 1837 - 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, whilst 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-conscious 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. Lithograph, coloured by hand. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few skillfully repaired small tears in the top and left margins. Trimmed to the image on the bottom of the sheet.

Housed in a later green cloth clamshell case.Charles James Apperley (1777-1843), English sportsman and sporting writer, better known as Nimrod, the pseudonym under which he published his works on the chase and on the turf. A devoted fox-hunter, around 1821 Apperley began to contribute a series of articles to The Sporting Magazine, under the pseudonym of "Nimrod," that covered horse races, hunt meets and other sporting events. His references to the personalities of the people he knew or met at such events helped to double the circulation of the magazine within a few years. Mr. Pittman, the proprietor of The Sporting Magazine, gave Nimrod a handsome salary and defrayed all the expenses of his tours. He also gave Nimrod a stud of hunters. After Pittman's death, the proprietors of the magazine sued Apperley for the money that had been advanced. To avoid imprisonment, Apperley moved to Calais in 1830, where he supported himself by writing. Apperley is best known for his two books, The Life of a Sportsman, and Memoirs of the Life of John Mytton, both of which were illustrated with colored engravings by Henry Thomas Alken. Apperley eventually returned to England and died in Upper Belgrave Place, London, on 19 May 1843.The Plates:1. Preparing to Start.2. Getting Well Off.3. The Race - Epsom.4. The Melton Hunt.5.

        The Taglioni!!!

      R. Ackermann, London 1837 - A fine copy of the original issue on 'Whatman Turkey Mill' paper showing the Windsor coach at full speed "In 1837 and 1839, Ackermann published many aquatints after Cooper Henderson's pictures of which 'The Taglioni!!!'. is the best. Devoid of setting, except for a line for the road, the speed of the coach and the actions of the horses pulling it are accentuated by the lack of unnecessary fuss or detail. One can almost hear the whole ensemble humming along like a finely tuned machine." (Lane Cooper Henderson and the Open Road p. 60). Cooper Henderson "was educated at Brighton and then Winchester before studying rather idly for the Bar and enjoying a European tour with his father and elder brother, John. While his father and brother sketched panoramas. Cooper Henderson found, to him, more interesting subjects among the coaches, carriages and postillions 'on the road'. On Christmas Eve, 1829, he was married secretly to Charlotte By (then aged sixteen), the daughter of a Thames lighterman. Disapproving of the marriage, his father gave him a small allowance and told him to leave London. Thrown mainly onto his own resources, Cooper Henderson moved to Bracknell in Berkshire and started to paint for his living. He was quickly successful and his pictures of coaches and coaching are well known, being more accurate and lively than those of his near contemporary, James Pollard. he soon received sufficient commissions to afford to return to London where he was reconciled with his parents." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.119) Charles Lane Cooper Henderson and the Open Road p.96; Siltzer p.137. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by J. Harris (expert repairs, one just touching image area).

        This Map of the Colony of New South Wales , Exhibiting the Situation and Extent of the appropriated lands,including the Counties, Towns, Village Reserves &c. Compiled from Authentic Surveys &c. is respectfully Dedicated to Sir John Barrow Bart. President of the Royal Geographical Society

      London: engraved by J. & C. Walker, published by J. Cross, 20 July, 1837. Dissected hand-coloured engraved map, backed on linen, 1265 x 785 mm., some flecking and toning, a few spots and wear, but a remarkablly handsome large-format map, early owner&#39;s name "J. Bowman" repeated in pen on the verso; preserved in a silk-lined green morocco case by Sangorski. Owned by John Macarthur&#39;s son-in-law. A fine and rare large-format map depicting New South Wales, of particular interest for the detailed depiction of land-holders in the colony: the mapping of the Southern Highlands, to cite just one meaningful example, shows all of the major grants to figures such as Atkinson, Coghill, Oxley, and Riley. An inset map at top left shows the Australian coastline. This map was originally owned by Dr. James Bowman (1784-1846), who has signed it "J. Bowman" four times to the verso. Bowman joined the British Navy in 1806 and a decade later was appointed to the Mary Anne as a surgeon in charge of the convicts on board. He returned to Sydney in 1817 on the Lord Eldon, now appointed principal surgeon to succeed D&#39;Arcy Wentworth. It was on the voyage out that he became acquainted with John Macarthur, as well as an intimate of John Thomas Bigge. While serving as the head of the Sydney Hospital he married Mary, the second daughter of John and Elizabeth Macarthur, a connection which was directly responsible for him being given such an enormous tract of land in 1824 (her dowry had included 2000 merino sheep after all). Dixon&#39;s map clearly shows Bowman&#39;s enormous 14,600 acre grant at Ravensworth, not far as the crow flies from grants to William Cox and Sir Francis Forbes. The family sold Ravensworth in 1847 to Captain William Russell (on Bowman see a long entry in the Australian Dictionary of Biography). The map was published by Robert Dixon (1800-1858), a surveyor and explorer who arrived in Van Diemen&#39;s Land in May 1821 with his brother George. Initially employed by Edward Lord, in 1826 Dixon sold out and went to Sydney to work as an assistant surveyor to John Oxley. One of his first tasks was an open-boat survey of the Illawarra, and in 1827 he accompanied Mitchell to the Grose Valley in Victoria; in a follow-up expedition to the Burragorang valley Dixon became lost and nearly perished. Dixon next completed a series of important surveys in the Blue Mountains, Goulburn, Queanbeyan, the Upper Hunter, and New England. In short, he was so well-travelled that when he returned to England in 1836 he arranged for the publication of the present map, an act which so incensed Mitchell, who fiercely guarded what he saw as his proprietorial rights in the subject, that the then Surveyor-General refused to reinstate Dixon on the latter&#39;s return to New South Wales. Cast aside, Dixon settled in Moreton Bay, but soon had a falling out with Governor Gipps (in part again because of a second map that he imprudently published), and ultimately drifted back to Sydney with his family, having offended all of his putative supporters. Although his later career was marked by disappointment, &#39;Dixon played an outstanding part in extending geographical knowledge in New South Wales, and many of his surveys were performed under trying and hazardous conditions. He ranks high among early surveyors and explorers&#39; (ADB). Dixon dedicated the map to Sir John Barrow, then president of the Royal Geographical Society, and it was engraved by the brothers John and Charles Walker, a firm particularly known for its association with the hydrographer James Horsburgh and the East India Company (Worms & Baynton-Williams, British Map Engravers). Other copies (such as that in the National Library) have been dissected into 40 smaller sections, unlike the 20 sections of this copy.

        Cock of the Plains [Sage Grouse]

      London 1837 - From the first edition of "The Birds of America." One of Audubon's great images: the male sage grouse is pictured in the midst of its extraordinary mating dance while a female looks on quietly, apparently uninterested in the highly stylized posturings of her would-be mate. "Although the Cock of the Plains has long been known to exist within the limits of the United States, the rugged and desolate nature of the regions inhabited by it has hitherto limited our knowledge of its habits to the cursory observations made by a few intrepid travelers.Two of these travelers, my friends, Mr. [J.K.] Townsend and Mr. [T.] Nuttall, have favoured me with the following particulars [with some added].notes of Mr.Douglas.This bird is only found on plains which produce the worm-wood (Artemesia), on which it feeds.It is very unsuspicious, and easily approached, rarely flies unless hard-pressed, runs before you at the distance of a few feet, clucking like a common hen, often runs under the horses of travelers when disturbed, rises very clumsily, but when once started, flies with rapidity to a great distance" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. V, pp.1o6-107). "This, the largest grouse of North America, was called the 'pheasant-tailed grouse' or 'cock of the plains' by Audubon, who in his travels on the upper Missouri did not quite reach the western country where it is found. The sage grouse is noted for its extraordinary dance? The dance in an arena amongst the open bush is a communal affair. A number of males, each one well-spaced, dance with their spiky tails spread and their yellow neck sacs inflated.Originally the sage grouse was found in fifteen of the western states, wherever sagebrush flourished.Overgrazing and drought in the 1930s nearly brought the sage grouse to the status of an endangered species.The survivors started to recover by the 1950s, and today the sage brush population has an estimated total population of 1,500,000 birds" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America, London: 1981, no. 126). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America , New Haven & New York: 2002, p.189. Hand-colored engraving with aquatint and etching by Robert Havell, Jr., 1837, paper watermark indistinct, some expert small repairs to lower margin. [Attributes: First Edition]
