        No. 58 Pl. 287 Wild Turkey Male

      0 - Hand-colored lithograph by J.T. Bowen after John James Audubon. From the First Octavo edition of the Birds of America, From Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories. New York and Philadelphia: J. J. Audubon and J. B. Chevalier, 1839-44. Paper dimensions: 10 x 6 ½ inches. A tireless entrepreneur, John James Audubon devoted himself to an unprecedented project, becoming the first to attempt the seemingly insurmountable task of documenting all the bird life of North America. This venture grew out of a genuine and passionate interest in his subjects, and Audubon determined not only to complete a project that no one else had undertaken, but to approach it in an entirely innovative manner. His style and his persona were much like the notion of America itself: ambitious, animated and larger than life. The artist's tireless efforts and remarkable talent culminated in the publication in London of his 435-plate Birds of America (1827-1838), undoubtedly the greatest work on birds ever produced. The celebration of this quintessentially American work, and the enterprising, talented artist who created it, has grown steadily since the time of its publication. Even before the double elephant folio edition had been completed, Audubon was planning the octavo edition in order to make his magnificent Birds of America available to a wider spectrum of people. In the introduction to the first part of his reduced format edition, Audubon wrote that he had "been frequently asked, for several years past, by numerous friends of science, both in America and Europe, to present to them and to the public a work on the Ornithology of our country, similar to my large work, but of such dimensions, and at such price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library." All of the birds from Audubon's original folio aquatints were reduced by camera lucida for lithography by the artist's son John Woodhouse, and new species were added. The octavo edition was expanded to 500 plates, and included the text of Audubon's "Ornithological Biography." Because it incorporates Audubon's text and several new plates, this edition is also considered the first complete edition of Audubon's Birds of America, as well as the first American edition. It was beautifully printed and colored by John Bowen of Philadelphia (with the exception of Pl.136 - Pl.150 adeptly executed by Endicott in New York), one of the finest American lithographers of his day, and issued in 100 serial parts over a five-year span. Audubon's "little work," as he called it, was a great success, attracting nearly 1,200 subscribers and becoming the format through which Audubon's ornithology was most widely disseminated in the nineteenth century. This was prepared by Emily Nhaissi for Arader Galleries. I guarantee its accuracy. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition]

        Poems, now first collected

      London: Edward Moxon, , 1839 . Octavo (161 × 100 mm). Brown morocco-textured skiver presentation binding, title gilt to spine which is gilt in compartments, ornate gilt panelling surrounding large gilt urn device to both boards, all edges gilt, neatly rebacked with the greater part of the original spine laid down. A little rubbed at the extremities, light toning, but overall very good. First edition. Presentation inscription to the front free endpaper; "To Mrs. [Fanny] Kemble with Leigh's kind regards. 15th January 1872." Inscribed to the great actress by her son-in-law. Bookplate of Butler Place, the suburban Philadelphia home of Kemble and her husband Pierce Butler, which passed to her as part of the settlement of their 1863 divorce. Fanny Kemble, the British-born actress, settled in America following a "triumphal tour". Despite her abolitionist sentiments, she married the plantation-owning Butler, and after a brief visit to his estates in Georgia wrote Journal of a Residence on a Georgia Plantation, considered to be the best portrayal of plantation life by a writer of abolitionist sentiment. Lord Leigh, poet and literary patron, friend and admirer of Lord Byron, was the father of Canon James Wentworth Leigh who married Fanny and Pierce's younger daughter Frances Butler Leigh in June 1871. Lord Leigh, like Kemble, strongly opposed slavery. His poetry was not widely known but was "much prized by the scholarly few", his "early verse is mildly libertine, the later mildly pious. The principal work is a sequence of verse epistles addressed 'to a friend in town' arguing liberal positions on the aesthetic and economic questions of the day. Byron was ever the point of departure… Chandos Leigh thought and lived as a more civilized Byron might have done." (ODNB) In his preface Leigh remarks, "Surely every real friend of freedom… fervently hopes for the abolition of slavery in America." Further, in the poem "America," he writes "thus where each citizen is deem'd the heir/Of liberty plague-spots of slavery come:/Nature has never written in her tome/That colour gives monopoly to 'whites'/Of freedom…" In his annotations to the poem he quotes extensively from Chevalier and Tocqueville whose recent works inform this poem. His son began holding services for freed slaves on Pierce Butler's estate in 1873, and through the efforts of both he and his wife a church was built "for the Colored People of McIntosh County," St. Cyprian's at Darien, Georgia, which was consecrated in 1876, and still stands today, Clearly this book, in its delicate presentation binding, was intended by Leigh as an affectionate tribute to his son's new mother-in-law, a fellow author whose liberal sentiments he much admired. An extremely attractive association.

The plates in Boys' Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c 'are produced entirely by means of lithography: they are printed with oil-colours, and come from the press precisely as they now appear.' As detailed in the Descriptive Notice, it was strictly stipulated by the publisher that no colour be added, and goes on to state that previous attempts at chromolithography had suffered from an unnatural flatness 'whereas in these views, the various effects of light and shade, of local colour and general tone, result from graduated tone. The atmospheric appearance of the skies, giving day-light appearance to the out-door scenes, is the best evidence of the purity and relevance of the tints of colour; which.combine solidity with transparency'. Boys fully explored the range of possibilities that the new technique offered: one subject is presented as if it were 'a crayon sketch heightened with colour', others 'a sepia drawing, with touches of colour.a slight sketch in water-colours.a finished oil painting', etc. Abbey waxes lyrical about the work: "A very beautiful [work].Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity, and.mastery of the drawing on stone there is the great.technical and artistic achievement of Hullmandel in making possible the transmission of such drawings, and in developing the cool, transparent, graduated tints, subtle in colouring.the [work] appears to have made a great impression at the time, King Louis said to have presented the publishers with a diamond ring; and a review in a contemporary magazine, Art Union, said: Our recommendation of it to all who love and can appreciate art cannot be given in terms too strong; it is worthy of the highest possible praise. The Work is of exceeding beauty." (Abbey Travel I , 33). Cf. Abbey Travel I, 33; cf. E. Beresford Chancellor, Picturesque Architecture in Thomas Shotter Boys , London: Architectural Press, 1928; cf. Friedman 134; Tooley 105. Lithograph by Shotter Boys. Printed in colours by Charles Hullmandel, deluxe edition, trimmed to the subject as issued, mounted on archival mount. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The engraved frontispiece is in the first state with Chapman and Hall at the bottom, other plates do not have the imprint and are termed second state. Most of the textual errors as noted in Smith have not been corrected, although a few have been changed. Three plates are misbound: "Newman Noggs Leaves the Ladies" is found at p.166, "Nicholas Attracted by the Mention of His Sister's Name" at .308, and "The Children at Their Cousin's Grave" at p. 223.
