        Cent et Un Robert-Macaire, Les

      Paris: Chez Aubert et Cie, , 1839. An Exceptionally Rare Original Hand-Colored Copy [DAUMIER, Honoré, illustrator]. PHILIPON, Charles. Les Cent et Un Robert-Macaire composés et dessinés par M. H. Daumier, sur les Idées et les Légendes de M. Ch. Philipon réduits et lithographiés par MM***; Texte par MM. Maurice Alhoy et Louis Huart. Paris: Chez Aubert et Cie, 1839. First Quarto Edition. Two quarto volumes bound in one. (10 3/4 x 8 3/8 inches; 273 x 212 mm.). [viii], [2, advertisements], [200], [3], [1, blank]; [vi], [2, advertisements], [202], [3], [1, blank] pp. With 101 magnificent hand-colored lithographed plates, heightened with gum arabic. Contemporary three-quarter maroon straight-grain morocco over marbled boards, ruled in gilt. Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled end-papers. Front free endpaper with the small blue leather bookplates of R. Descamps Scrive and Georges Laine, and also the engraved bookplate of Bernard Bloch-Levalois. A fine and large example with spectacular original hand-coloring and a fine provenance. "Les Robert-Macaire remains Daumier's best-known series?Baudelaire chose it, along with Histoire ancienne, for specific discussion in his essay on French caricaturists, and Carteret accorded it a place in his bibliography. Its contemporary popularity was immense. As an album it was published by Aubert in an edition of 2500 copies, a far larger number than for any other series. Yet, so persistent was the demand, that 600 two-volume sets of reduced copies, called Les cent-et-un Robert-Macaire, were published in 1839?When politics became a forbidden topic in Le charivari, where Caricaturana [Les Robert-Macaire] first appeared, Daumier and Philipon turned to social satire. If they could not attack Louis Philippe directly, they could at least show the kind of society that flourished under his gross and venal regime. Taking the flamboyant and florid swindler Macaire from the character that Frédérick Lemaître had created in a hack melodrama called L'Auberge des adrets, they showed him and his inseparable companion, the dejected and meager Bertrand, ranging through all kinds of commercial enterprise, in the stock market, in the banks, in the courts, and in dozens of other public settings, never failing to find eager dupes. Macaire is equally persuasive in the encounters of private life, where no situation finds him at a loss for an appropriate flower of sentiment?Though Daumier's designs are superb in themselves, particularly in the variety of supple and telling poses?that he conceives for Macaire and Bertrand, they would be incomplete without the unfailing wit and point of Philipon's captions" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, pp. 234-236). "These reduced and for the most part reversed copies of Daumier's lithographs, apparently drawn by Menut Alophe, are greatly inferior to the originals. Unlike Caricaturana, the series is not often found colored" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 236). Carteret III, p.187. Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 162. Vicaire III, cols. 31-32 (under Alhoy) and V, cols. 572-573 (under Philipon).

        View of Jeruzalem. From: Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient, gesammelt auf der Reise Sr. Hoheit des Herrn Herzogs Maximilian in Bayern nach Nubien, Aegypten, Palaestina, Syrien und Malta im Jahre MDCCCXXXVIII [1838] und Herausgegeben von Heinrich v. Mayr.

      München, Heinrich von Mayr, 1839-1840. Oblong plate (48.8 x 36.8 cm), finely lithographed and hand-coloured.l Very rare, magnificent hand-coloured plate by the Nuremberg artist Heinrich von Mayr (1806-1871). Von Mayr accompanied Duke Maximilian II of Bavaria (1811-1864; from 1848 onwards King of Bavaria) and his entourage as a personal painter on an eight-month "Grand Tour" to the Orient and back. "Ermunternd wirkten die ersten Aufträge des Herzogs Maximilian, welcher, nachdem der junge Künstler 1832 und 1833 am Hofe des Fürsten von Thurn und Taxis mehrere größere Gemälde, Cavalcaden, Jagden und dgl. ausgeführt hatte, denselben als artistischen Begleiter auf seine orientalische Reise 1838 und 1839 mitnahm. Die Titelverleihung zum herzoglichen Cabinetsmaler war nur eine auszeichnende Förmlichkeit, da der Herzog den Künstler persönlich hochhielt und mit wahrer Freundschaft ehrte. Als Frucht dieser Aegypten, Nubien, Palästina, Syrien und Malta umfassenden Reise gab M. die beiden großen, damals gerechtes Auffehen erregenden Prachtwerke heraus "Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient" (München und Leipzig 1839 ff., lithogr. von F. Kaiser, 60 Blätter)" (Deutsche Biographie). They travelled from Munich to Venice, Corfu, Patras, Athens, Alexandria, and Cairo to the Holy Land. They then travelled via Malta back to Munich, arriving in September 1838. This illustration depicts Jerusalem and its walls, from outside the city. The view has a broad, pictorial border. A fine, clean copy of this rarity. Kainbacher, 265 ("RRR - Rarität").

        Journal of an invalid in pursuit of health during a voyage in the Mediterranean[,] Levant and Black Seas on board of the brig MacLeod 1839-1840. [Gateshead (Northumberland)?, ca. 1842], covering 20 October 1839-29 April 1840. 4to. Manuscript in English, with drawings of ships' flags, 1 steel-engraved postcard and 8 steel-engraved topographic prints (inserted as plates). Contemporary gold-tooled maroon goatskin morocco.

      An extremely detailed journal of a voyage to the Ottoman Empire in the 325 ton brig Macleod and of the writer's adventures ashore in numerous cities there and in the Middle East, averaging about 3 pages per day, but with much more at the most interesting sights. It was written by Saunderson Walker after his return to England, clearly based on a journal kept during the voyage.After a brief introduction with background information and an account of the preparations, the present journal records his departure on 22 October 1839 and gives a daily log of the voyage and the islands on the way from England to Constantinople, where he arrived on 23 November. He devotes about sixty pages to the city and its surroundings before setting off for Smyrna (Izmir) on the steamer Stambool. After about 45 pages on Smyrna he set off again, visiting Rhodes, Cyprus, Beirut, Palestine, Egypt, then back to Smyrna and Constantinople for another long stay. After an excursion through the Black Sea to Odessa and back he set off for home, departing on 21 February 1840 and arriving in Falmouth on 19 April. Walker gives very detailed descriptions of sights, events and people, visiting the bazars, the Seraglio, mosques, baths, dances and religious ceremonies. He ventured beyond the usual tourist sights, however. Coming from a shipping family he arranged to view the Ottoman and Egyptian fleets.The inserted steel engravings are foxed and a few leaves of the manuscript have browned patches, but it is otherwise in very good condition. The binding is worn at the hinges and has some surface cracks in the spine, but is otherwise also very good. A very extensive and remarkably detailed picture of life in the Ottoman Empire in 1839/40.

        12 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 32 S., 8. Er besuchte das Priesterseminar der Diözese Chartres und war auf dem Priesterseminar St. Sulpice in Paris eingeschrieben. Am 25. Mai 1839 wurde er zum Diözesanpriester der Diözese Chartres geweiht. Danach war er als Vikar in der Kathedrale von Chartres tätig und wurde 1844 zum Generalvikar ernannt. Seine Wahl zum Bischof von Poitiers erfolgte am 29. Mai 1849, die am 28. September 1849 bestätigt wurde. Der Bischof von Chartres Claude-Hippolyte Clausel de Montals und die Mitkonsekratoren Bischof Pierre-Louis Parisis von Langres und Jean-Nicaise Gros von Versailles weihten ihn am 25. November 1849 zum Bischof. Bischof Pie war anfangs kein Befürworter des Dogmas zur Unfehlbarkeit des Papstes (vergleiche auch: Pastor Aeternus von 1870), seine Meinung änderte er nach der Teilnahme am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil (1869-1870) und wurde ein starker Verfechter dieses Dogmas. Am 12. Mai 1879, dem ersten Konsistorium des Jahres 1879, wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. (1878-1903) zum Kardinal erhoben, am 22. September 1879 erhielt er das rote Birett, gleichzeitig wurde ihm als Kardinalpriester die Kirche Santa Maria della Vittoria in Rom übertragen. Er starb am 17. Mai 1880 und wurde in der Kathedrale von Poitiers beigesetzt (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Kronik der Kinder der Preussen und der Kinder der Holländer. Beschrieben in biblischer Sprache. "Utrecht" [= Altona?], 1788. 8vo. With engraved frontispiece, titled: "Es lebe Oranien", woodcut vignette on title-page and at the end, and a woodcut headpiece. Contemporary paper wrappers.

      Bilderdijk, Geschiedenis des Vaderlands XXII (1839), p. 208 ("zeldzaam"); GVK (2 copies); Picarta (3 copies); STCN (2 copies). Curious German-language chronicle of Dutch history, probably published under pseudonym. It relates in a sort of biblical language the history of the Dutch Patriot Movement, especially in Utrecht, and the intervention by the Prussians in support of the party of the Orangists, preceded by a short survey of the history of the Dutch Stadtholders, the Princes of Orange, since the rebellion against Spain. The author seems to be in favour of the Orangist party, as the title of the frontispiece "Long live Orange" also suggests. This engraving shows soldiers on horseback fighting, while in the background a fortified city is being bombarded from across the river.Wrappers worn, tattered spine. Text foxed and slightly dog-eared. Untrimmed copy of a rare work on the Dutch Patriot Movement.

        The jotting book; a political and literary experiment

      London, John Murray, 1839-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Bound in original 1/4 cloth over brown boards. 1st ed. Scarce title. Scattered foxing. Subtitle: I. Progressive Thoughts on the Practical Working of the House of Commons before and since the Reform Bill; intended as an argument for the genuine finality of that meassure; being extracts from the diary of a resolute optimist in all that regards the Constitution of England. Hall dedicates this book to Sir Robert Peel, Lord Stanley and Sir Francis Burdett. Hall's Jottings contain his dated thoughts on the progress of the Reform Bill of 1832. The Great Reform Act was a significant victory for democracy in the United Kingdom that attempted to attack the problem of the rotten borough system. It greatly increased the franchise among adult males. It is a reasonable supposition that without this Reform Bill the United Kingdom would have faced widespread bloody revolution and labor strife seen in other parts of Europe during the 19th century.

        Jack Sheppard.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1839. A Romance. With Illustrations by George Cruikshank. In Three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (200 x 123 mm). Original green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, spines and boards elaborately decorated in blind, edges uncut. Housed in a red morocco slipcase with cloth chemise, lettered, ruled, and decorated in gilt and black. Engraved portrait frontispiece and 8 plates to vol. I, 9 plates to vol. II, 10 to vol. III. Bookplates of the American oil tycoon and philanthropist Edward Laurence Doheny (1856-1935) and his second wife, the rare book collector Carrie Estelle Doheny, to front pastedowns and free endpapers, bookseller's catalogue entry tipped-in to vol. I front free endpaper. Bound without the two page publisher's advertisement before the frontispiece of vol. I as called for by Sadleir and Wolfe. Spine ends and corners bruised, a few knocks to extremities, boards marked and spines a little faded, two hinges partly cracked but holding very firm, contents evenly lightly browned, a very good set. First edition of one of the most popular and polarising "Newgate" novels, accompanied by some of Cruikshank's best illustrative work. "Praised for its vivid writing, especially its depiction of a storm on the Thames and its account of Jack Sheppard's escape from Newgate prison, the novel became so popular that by the end of 1839 nine different theatrical versions of it had appeared on the London stage. One of these versions introduced the hit song of the season ('Nix my Dolly, Pals'), based on a 'flash song' of criminal slang that Ainsworth had written for Rookwood. But Jack Sheppard also provoked criticism. John Forster attacked it in The Examiner for glorifying criminals, William Makepeace Thackeray did the same in his novel Catherine, and there were even suggestions that the notorious murder committed by Courvoisier in 1840 had been inspired by a reading of Ainsworth's novel" (ODNB). Ainsworth and Cruikshank's collaborative relationship, which began with Ainsworth's first novel Rookwood (1836), would continue over the next decade as the popular illustrator provided wood-engraved and steel-etched plates for several more of Ainsworth's historical novels. It is considered some of Cruikshank's finest work: "he regularly honours Ainsworth with a careful minuteness and polish of execution he had accorded to no earlier author, certainly not Dickens. And the results of this prolonged careful devotion to 'effect' can be very fine in the richly dense gatherings of shadow, and the glimmerings and percolations of light that break out here and there in clear gleams" (Patten, p. 144). Carrie Estelle Doheny's library in Camarillo, California "represented one of the rarest book libraries in the United States. Within the collection, 4,000 volumes were rare books and first editions. Fifteen hundred of the volumes were comprised of autograph letters and important historical and literary manuscripts. Early vellum manuscripts such as bibles, gospels, commentaries, liturgical works, and ornamented books revealed the prominence of the collection" (Cheung, p. 97).

        Panorama di Roma veduta dalla Torre del Campidoglio

      Roma 1839 - Litografia, 1839, firmata e datata in basso a destra e sinistra. Bellissima prova, impressa su quattro fogli di carta coeva uniti, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa panorama è idealmente preso dalla torre del Campidoglio ruotando da sinistra verso destra di 360 gradi, con una raffigurazione che inizia dal Pincio e si chiude a Piazza del Popolo. L’opera è stampata dalla litografia Kier di Venezia e nel margine inferiore reca una leggenda di 69 numeri. L’impianto della veduta è ancora quello di un pittore di tradizione settecentesca, in sintonia con la definizione che lo stesso Caffi, allora trentenne, dava di se stesso: "pittore prospettico". Emilio Re nella biografia sull’artista della mostra romana del 1959 definisce, già allora, "rara" la veduta. Bibliografia: Vedute Romane, pp. 13, 50, n. 74; Roma Veduta, p. 221, 67; Le piante di Roma nelle collezioni private, p. 344, 276. Dimensioni 1450x145. Lithograph, 1839, signed and dated on lower right and left. Beautiful work, printed on four sheets of contemporary laid paper then joined together, light oxidations otherwise in excellent condition. This panorama is ideally seen from the tower of the Campidoglio, rotating towards the right side of 360 degrees, starting from the Pincio and ending in Piazza del Popolo. The work has been printed by the Kier lithography in Venice; on lower margin it bears 69 numbers. The setting of the view recalls that of an XVIII century painter, according to the definition that Caffi himself, at the age of thirty, gave of his art: "perspective painter". In his biography of the artist, written on the occasion of the 1959 exhibition, Emilio Re defined this subject "rare". Bibliografia: Vedute Romane, pp. 13, 50, n. 74; Roma Veduta, p. 221, 67; Le piante di Roma nelle collezioni private, p. 344, 276. Dimensioni 1450x145. Vedute Romane, pp. 13, 50, n. 74; M.

        De la bienfaisance publique. Nouvelle edition. Tome premier (-tome seconde)

      Societ? Belge de Librairie, 1839. 2 voll. in 8, pp. XIII + (3) + 504 con tavv. sinott. n.t. e 1 tav. f.t. piu' volte rip.; 550 con tavv. sinott. n.t. Intonsi. Alcune cc. presentano leggere gore marginali. Br. ed. Seconda ed. dello stesso anno della prima pubblicata a Parigi di uno dei piu' importanti e completi trattati sulla storia dell'indigenza considerata nei suoi rapporti con l'economia sociale, la storia e la statistica. L'A. si sofferma sulla nascita delle istituzioni volte a porre un argine al fenomeno in Francia e nelle altre nazioni europee con un'analisi dettagliata delle diverse legislazioni. Gerando mette a frutto la lunga esperienza in qualita' di direttore degli ospizi parigini, delle case per sordomuti, e di altre istituzioni previdenziali. Il suo approccio ai problemi sociali deriva sicuramente dal fatto che egli dedichi i suoi primi studi all'antropologia, pubblica infatti una guida all'osservazione dei popoli selvaggi ed e' considerato come il primo antropologo francese. Con Le visiteur du pauvre, apparso nel 1824, Gerando fa dell'osservazione la condizione stessa dello studio degli indigenti: la 'visita' non ha piu' solo una funzione caritatevole ma una funzione di osservazione.

        Spécies générales et iconographie des coquilles vivantes comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna (appartenant maintenant A. M. B. Delessert) et les découvertes récentes des voyageurs. Famille des canalifères. I. Cérite (Cerithium), pleurotome (Pleurotoma), fuseau (Fusinus).

      Paris, Rousseau, and J. B. Baillière, 1839-1842. 4to (32.0 x 25.0 cm). Title page and half title, 250 pp., 90 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [104 pp., 32 plates (cérite); 84 pp., 27 plates (pleurotome); 62 pp., 31 plates [numbered 1-30, 17bis] (fuseau)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ‘Spécies'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers three groups, viz. the Cerithiidae and related families, and Triphoridae; the turrids (s.l.), and the Fasciolariidae, published in parts between 1839 and 1842. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. More in detail: title pages and half titles spotted; first text leaves of each part less so with scattered, mostly marginal spotting, a few plates in "fuseau" a bit toned, all other plates with only a few small spots or, in most plates, clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65; Nissen ZBI, 2183.

        [Pre-Raphaelite Stained Glass Watercolor Design- Thomas WIlliam Camm, Camm Studios] Exquisite Watercolor Four-Part Design for Stained Glass: The Good Shepherd, Captain of the Lords, The Host, The Sower

      Spectacular large four-part cut-away watercolor (29 x 17cm) by Thomas William Camm, with four parts, mounted on thick gray board. With four tall and narrow illustrations, "The Good Shepherd," "Captain of the Lords," "The Host," and "The Sower" as well as detailed stained-glass design above and below central figures. Expertly painted with a high degree of detail and skill. Thomas William Camm (1839-1912), founder, chief artist/designer and manufacturer of stained glass in England, opening operation in 1865 as Camm Brothers in Smethwick, and later, "The Studio." Thomas Camm was one of the most accomplished stained glass designers of the period. The American architect Ralph Adams Cram wrote "at the present moment a large number of artists in England are producing work of most singular beauty and perfection. Amongst these I have no hesitation in placing Mr. Camm easily as the first". His daughter Florence Camm produced most of the artwork for the company after his death in 1912. The studio won medals in Paris in 1878, Sydney in 1879 and in Turin in 1911 and commissions came in from America, Spain, New Zealand and India. Dozens of churches, institutions and private homes in England still boast stained glass windows designed by Camm and his daughter. Design #3372 (written in pen at bottom left, signe "T. W. Camm, The Studio, Smethwick," lower right). Near fine, with minor wear to extremity of card matte. Provenance: Directly from Camm Studio Estate.

        Narrative of a Journey to the Site of Babylon in 1811, now first published:: Memoir of the Ruins; with engravings from the original sketches by the author: Remarks on the topography of Ancient Babylon, by Major Rennell; in reference to the memoir:.

      Duncan & Malcolm, London 1839 - 8 vo. xlvii, 324 pp. 25 plates, 1 folding plan, half-title, title gilt on raised decorated spine, marbled endpaper & edges, bookplate of Edward Blore, occasional spotting, slightly rubbed. First edition, edited by Mary MacIntosh Rich (his widow) A "Memoir on the Ruins with Engravings from the Original Sketches by the Author, Remarks on the Topography of Ancient Babylon by Major Rennell; Second Memoir on the Ruins with a Narrative of a Journey to Persepolis with hitherto Unpublished Cuneiform Inscriptions Copied at Persepolis." Claudius James Rich (March 28, 1787 – October 5, 1821) was a British business agent, traveller and antiquarian scholar, with a gift for languages. In 1804 Rich went to Constantinople, where, and at Smyrna, he stayed some time, perfecting himself in Turkish. Proceeding to Alexandria as assistant to the British consul-general there, he devoted himself to Arabic and its various dialects, and made himself master of Eastern manners and usage's. On leaving Egypt he travelled by land to the Persian Gulf, disguised as a Mamluk, visiting Damascus, and entering the great mosque undetected. At Bombay, which he reached in September 1807, he was the guest of Sir James Mackintosh, whose eldest daughter Mary he married on 22 January 1808, proceeding soon after to Baghdad as resident. There he began his investigations into the geography, history and antiquities of the district. He explored the remains of Babylon, and projected a geographical and statistical account of the Pashalic of Baghdad. The results of his work at Babylon appeared first in the Vienna serial Mines de l'Orient, and in 1839 in London under the title Narrative of a Journey to the Site of Babylon in 1811.

        The Frogs. [Translated by John Hookham Frere]

      W. Nichol, [London 1839 - First Edition of this translation by John Hookham Frere. 79 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Frere's Frogs. Inscribed on flyleaf: "Presented by the author, / The R. Hon. John Hookham Frere/ Valetta Malta 13 May 1845."From before the start of his diplomatic career, Frere was a sparkling writer of humorous poetry, especially as a translator of Aristophanes. He printed his renderings of the plays on the government printing press in Malta in 1839, and they were published in England in 1840 (in 1829 he had given S. T. Coleridge, whom he helped financially, a handwritten copy of these translations). His Ode on Aethelstan's Victory was written while he was at Eton and was admired by Sir James Mackintosh and Scott. He also published on King Arthur and the round table (1817) and on Theognis (1842). Byron's Beppo (1818) was written in imitation of him and in 1819 he formed one of Byron's 'cursed puritanical committee', which decided against the publication of the first canto of Don Juan."He was one of the founders of the Quarterly Review, though he wrote only one article for it (on Aristophanes in July 1820), signed 'W', for Whistlecraft, his nom de plume. He helped Robert Southey with his history of the Peninsular War (though he had pilloried him earlier in the Anti-Jacobin). Frere was a better man of letters than diplomatist, but it was to the latter calling that he gave the best of his life." - DNB.

The work is famous for its splendid plates in the first livraison. These plates were drawn by Sebastian Minsinger and von Dinkel."Ihm sind auch die lebenswahren Abbildungen im der ersten Lieferung der 'Histoire naturelle des poissons...' von Louis Agassiz zu verdanken. Die übrige Teile dieses bahnbrechenden Werkes, das sich entgegen seinem Titel allein mit Salmoniden befasst, enthalten nur anatomische und embryologische Figuren, deren ästhetischen Wert naturgemäß allein in ihrer sauberen und eindringlichen Ausführung liegt" (Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher p. 28).//Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher 1; Wood 181.
