        Linea De Ward Espana - Cuba - Mexico Servicio Rapido Regular de Pasaje y Carga

      New York: Wendell P. Colton Co. . Poster. Color lithograph. Page measures 36.75" x 24". A unique poster from the interwar and prohibition period in 20th century US history. This poster advertisement is for the Ward Line, also known as the New York and Cuba Mail Steamship Company which operated passenger and cargo service out of New York City from 1841 to 1954. The two steamship featured on this poster are S.S. Orizaba and SS. Siboney. During World War I, the U.S. government commandeered Orizaba and Siboney and outfitted them for military duties which was common practice during the war. The Ward Line reacquired the ships after they were decommissioned by the US government. The routes with the Ward Line, from New York to Cuba and Mexico were successful in part because it was a way for people to get around Prohibition. The transatlantic route to Spain was apparently not as successful due to a lack of passengers. A tall ship can be seen off in the distance, which juxtaposed with the modern steamer, points to it as a way of the past. Small tear at bottom center. Hanging metal clips attached. Rare.

      Imp. P. J. Proudhon, (Besancon) 1841 - 4 opere in 16 legate in una. M. pl. coeva con pochi segni d'uso. I: pp. XX + 314 + (2). Mancanze con perdita di testo alla parte sup. di 3 cc. della pref. Seconda ed. rara stampata nella tip. di Proudhon (la prima risale all'anno precedente). II: pp. 188. Ed. orig. della prosecuzione di Qu'est - ce que la propriete'?ÂStammhammer, I, p. 193, 59. III: pp. 116. Gora e qualche segno d'uso. Goldsmiths, 32491. Kress, C. 5627. Stammhammer, 2. IV: pp. 24. Ed. orig. della difesa pronunciata da Proudhon davanti al tribunale di Doubs per difendersi dalle accuse di oltraggio alla religione e al governo procurategli dalle tre precedenti opere. Qu'est ce que la propriete'? e' la prima opera realmente politica scritta dall'A. Qui, per la prima volta, compare la frase "la proprie'te' c'est le vol" (la proprieta' e' un furto). Contemporaneamente compare anche il concetto, apparentemente contraddittorio, in base al quale la proprieta' e' liberta', altro caposaldo del pensiero prudhoniano. Di fronte all'obiettiva difficolta' per l'uomo di comprendere la realta' non e' possibile dare risposte definitive senza sfociare nel fallimento teorico e nell'arbitrio scientifico. Esiste invece una logica binaria di antinomia che e' la linfa di ogni sistema sociale e la base della liberta'. Proudhon auspica un sistema sociale che sia uno stato di uguaglianza, ne' comunismo ne' frazionamento, ma liberta' nell'ordine e indipendenza nell'unita'. Nasce cosi' il concetto di anarchia secondo Proudhon, idea incentrata su di un assoluto pluralismo, e inserita in una sociologia basata sul lavoro come azione collettiva in grado di produrre ricchezza sociale: l'unione produce una forza sociale superiore agli sforzi dei singoli individui e lo sfruttamento da parte del capitale avviene con l'appropriarsi indebitamente del risultato dello sforzo collettivo. Il concetto di proprieta' si inserisce necessariamente in questo ragionamento: la proprita' intesa come possesso e' eliminabile? Per Proudhon la risposta e' no in quanto il possesso, ovvero la produzione sociale, esistera' sempre anche in una societa' comunista. La proprieta' collettiva realizzera' sempre un controllo della produzione, anche se da parte dello stato, costruendo cosi' un controllo sull'individuo e sulla collettivita'. In pratica il progetto comunista e' estremamente pericoloso perche' non risolve il problema della diseguaglianza sociale, generando un sistema piu' pericoloso di quello capitalistico. La storia, i fatti e milioni di morti hanno dato ragione alle molte perplessita' di Proudhon. Le domande e le soluzioni si spostano con l'avanzare della storia dell'uomo che deve continuare a interrogarsi rigettando ogni risposta precostituita. Le idee espresse nella sua prima opera gli causarono l'ostracismo dell'Accademia di Besancon che tento', senza riuscirvi, di privarlo della borsa di studio che gli era stata attribuita, e che tuttavia lo costrinse a eliminare la dedicatoria all'accademia posta sul frontespizio. In sua difesa si pronuncio' l'economista Blanqui, al quale, infatti, si indirizza nella sua seconda memoria (Lettre a' M. Blanqui.). L'anno successivo, con Avvertiment aux proprietaires., verra' citato dall'assise di Doubs per oltraggio ma, anche grazie la sua difesa, pubblicata poi sotto il titolo di Explications pre'sente'es au ministere public,Âverra' assolto. Raro insieme completo di tutte le quattro parti tra esse idealmente legate. ITA

        Reports from the Select Committee on South Australia; together with the Minutes of Evidence, Appendix, and Index. [Comprising the] First Report . 9th March 1841 [and the] Second Report . 10th March 1841

      London, 'Communicated by the Commons to the Lords', and 'Ordered to be printed 21st June 1841' - Foolscap folio, [ii], 8 (last page blank) pages [First Report] and xl, 272, x, 358 (appendix), 58 (index) pages plus 4 large folding hand-coloured maps (including 3 by John Arrowsmith - see #2, 3 and 4 below) [Second Report]. Relatively modern half calf and cloth (by Morrell of London), retaining both front and rear original printed blue wrappers; leather very slightly rubbed at the extremities, with a light tidemark to the foot of the spine; front wrapper very slightly marked; minor offsetting to the maps, with an expert repair to a very short tear near the stub of the last one; essentially a fine uncut copy - it is difficult to imagine a better one turning up. Great Britain and Ireland Parliamentary Paper 174 of 1841 (the House of Lords issue, Ferguson 3221 [with minor pagination errors] - see also Ferguson 3218 and 3219). 'This Report contains very complete information regarding the Colony from its foundation [in 1836] to 1841' (Ferguson 3219, referring to the Second Report). Wakefield's self-supporting system of colonization, administered by the South Australian Colonization Commission, failed and the commission was dissolved in January 1840. 'The new board of three salaried commissioners slowly became aware that the colony's funds in London were rapidly dwindling. After months of inexcusable procrastination they had no choice but to throw the colony on the mercies of the Colonial Office. Nevertheless the blame of their own shortcomings and extravagance was placed squarely on [Governor] Gawler for his irregularities, "reckless" expenditure and alleged grave errors of judgment.' The imperial parliament accepted the select committee's recommendations and took control of the colony's affairs. Although the select committee had refused to condemn Gawler and reported that 'even his severest critics had suggested no way in which Gawler's expenditure might have been significantly reduced', he was abandoned as the scapegoat and after his recall in May 1841, he was never again to find public employment (Australian Dictionary of Biography). The maps are (1) Plan of the District of Adelaide, shewing the application of the Running Survey to that locality (Water Sections coloured) (approximately 500 x 600 mm) and (2) The District of Adelaide, South Australia; As divided into Country Sections. From the Trigonometrical Surveys of Colonel Light . (500 x 600 mm); (3) The Maritime Portion of South Australia, from Capn. Flinders and the more recent Surveys made by the Survr. Genl. of the Colonies (620 x 500 mm) and (4) Map shewing the Special Survey in South Australia, to the Eastward of the Gulf of St Vincent (515 x 600 mm).

        Journals of Two Expeditions of Discovery in North-west and Western Australia, during the years 1837, 38, and 39

      London: Boone, 1841. Two volumes, octavo, with 22 plates (six handcoloured), and two large folding maps (linen-backed in endpocket), text illustrations; a fine copy well bound without the advertisements; later half green morocco, spine richly gilt. London, T. & W. Boone, 1841. First edition: includes scientific appendices on birds by John Gould, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians by John Edward Gray, and insects by Adam White; some plates illustrate the Aboriginal rock paintings found on the first expedition are also present. One of the most striking of all works of inland exploration, with the suite of stunning images of Wandjina paintings from the north-western Kimberley region. This is a finely bound copy of the first edition of this famous exploration account, which includes scientific appendices on birds by John Gould; mammals, reptiles, amphibians by John Edward Gray; and insects by Adam White.This was Sir George Grey's first expedition, which began in December 1837 after he and his party of eight arrived on the Beagle at Hanover Bay on the north-west coast. The expedition was supposed to proceed south following the coast to the Swan River settlement. However problems beset the expedition from the outset, and for five months the party meandered inland at a very slow pace. Meetings with local Aborigines proved hostile, and Grey was badly wounded by a spear. Eventually, due to diminished provisions and exhaustion, the party returned to Hanover Bay and were rescued by the Beagle. Despite falling well short of their goal, the expedition yielded significant results: Grey discovered the Glenelg River, the Macdonald Range, the Stephen Range, the Gairdner River and Mount Lyell. Grey also achieved the distinction of becoming the first white man to see a Wandjina painting when he discovered the ones reproduced here in a rock shelter on the Glenelg River in the rugged Kimberley: 'looking over some bushes, at the sandstone rocks which were above us, I suddenly saw from one of them a most extraordinary large figure peering down upon me. Upon examination, this proved to be a drawing at the entrance to cave, which, on entering, I found to contain, besides, many remarkable paintings'. Realising the significance of the discovery, he went to considerable lengths to sketch, measure and describe the figures, which are reproduced here.Grey's second expedition left Perth in 1839 with the intention of exploring the North-West Cape. Again his goals were not realised: he was thwarted, first by the loss of one of his three whale-boats and most of his provisions, then by the wrecking of the remaining boats and supplies. A 300-mile trek back to Perth ensued, during which Grey and all but one of his men survived on whatever food they could scavenge from the land. Although Grey suffered appalling hardships and neither venture went according to plan, the results were valuable. "His expeditions were the first to examine the previously ignored north-west interior of the continent and he discovered much useful territory. The inland explorations of Grey and Lushington (his deputy), complemented by the associated coastal explorations of Wickham and Stokes in the 'Beagle', were a major advance in the discovery of the Australian continent" (Wantrup, 206).

        Memoria sobre a prioridade dos descobrimentos portuguezes na costa d'Africa Occidental, para servir de illustração a Chronica da Conquista de Guiné por Azurara ?.

      Paris, Na Livraria Portugueza de J.P. Aillaud, 1841. - Woodcut vignette on title page. (2 ll.), 245 pp., (1 l. errata). Large 8°, contemporary diced half calf over pebbled cloth boards (some wear at corners), spines with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letters and fillets, text block edges marbled, green silk place marker. Scattered light spotting. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. Written at the request of the Portuguese government, the @Memoria defends Portugal's claim to the territory of Casamance (Guinea), which France was then contesting. Following its initial success, Santarem was asked to translate the @Memoria into French so as to bolster Portugal's diplomatic interests. The first edition of the French translation, considerably augmented with additional material, was published Paris, 1842 under the title @Recherches sur la priorité de la découverte des pays situés sur la côte occidentale d'Afrique. This Portuguese edition is much rarer, since (according to Innocêncio) only 500 copies of it were printed, vs. 1,000 copies of the @Recherches. The @Memoria was serialized in the @Diario do Governo, 1842.While writing the @Memoria, Santarem was concurrently ransacking European archives for early maps and charts that documented the course of European, and particularly Portuguese, exploration. Although not ready for publication with the @Memoria, twenty-one maps relating particularly to the Casamance dispute were reproduced in fine lithographic reproduction and published in 1842, under the title @Atlas composé de cartes des XIV@e, XV@e, XVI@e et XVII@e siècles, as a supplement to the @Recherches. Santarem's famous @Atlas was later greatly expanded in Paris editions of 1842-1844 and 1849.The second Visconde de Santarem (1791-1856) has been called "the greatest figure in the history of Portuguese cartography" (Cortesão, @History of Portuguse Cartography I, 23); in fact, it was Santarem who coined the term "cartographia." He travelled to Brazil with the royal family in 1807 and held various diplomatic posts; he also served as Keeper of the Royal Archives at Torre do Tombo from 1824 until 1833, when he was dismissed for political reasons. Although he spent the rest of his life in Paris, his standing with the Portuguese government later improved to the point that the government funded many of his publications, and appointed him Keeper of the Torre do Tombo without requiring him to return to Portugal.---- Innocêncio V, 436: giving the imprint as Paris, Offic. de Fain & Thunot, 1841 (i.e. taking information from the printer's colophon, not the title page), and calling for 245 pp. + 1 p. errata.

        Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians.

      Published By the Author, At the Egyptian Hall, London 1841 - First edition, first issue. Octavo, bound in contemporary gilt-paneled calf. With 3 maps and 310 plates. An exceptional near fine example, rebacked, with the plates clean. Rare in contemporary calf. Less than two years after his arrival in London, Catlin published this, his Manners, Customs and Conditions of the North American Indians. It was immediately recognized as a monumental work in American ethnology, combining Catlin's unique knowledge and experiences with his rare artistic talent. The 309 line-cut reductions of his original paintings, together with the accompanying text, beautifully and accurately record virtually every aspect of Native American life— ceremonies, dances, hunting methods, forms of warfare, and daily chores. "No individual has contributed so much, of such great importance; no individual has had a greater influence upon the Western Americana art, literature and history of our country than George Catlin" (McCracken).

        Der Genius der Künste.

      . Bleistift und Deckweiß, grau laviert, mit doppelter schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf grauem Velin, verso rechts unten signiert "L. Doell. fec.". Darstellungsgröße 22,6:14,7 cm, Blattgröße 28,5:20,5 cm. Vorzeichnung zu einem 1841 entstandenen Gemälde des Künstlers, das sich im Altenburger Museum befindet und das seinerseits nach einer Skizze seines Lehrers J. Grassi entstanden ist.. Ersten Unterricht erhielt der Maler bei seinem Vater, dem Bildhauer F.W.E. Doell (1750-1816), und 1805 bei dem Schweizer Heinr. Meyer (1760-1832), einem Freund Goethes. 1806 studierte er an der Dresdener Akademie bei dem Historien- und Porträtmaler J. Grassi (um 1758-1838), als dessen bester Schüler er bezeichnet wird - bereits 1808 malte er ein Porträt König Friedrich August I. von Sachsen. Grassi begleitete er 1809-1811 und erneut 1817-1821 nach Italien. Seit 1812 war Doell in Altenburg tätig, auch als Lehrer an der Zeichenschule, und prägte gemeinsam mit Julius E. Dietrich (1808-1878) erheblich das kulturelle und künstlerische Leben der Stadt. Im Auftrag seines Gönners, des Herzogs August von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg entstand sicher auch das ihm zugeschriebene, wohl um 1822 gemalte Porträt des Herzogs (Royal Collection, London) und ein um 1823/24 entstandenes Gemälde der Luise von Sachsen Coburg und Saalfeld mit Kindern (Schloß Ehrenburg, Coburg). Weitere Werke des Künstlers befinden sich im Lindenau-Museum in Altenburg, und im Schloß Callenberg, Coburg.

        Viagem ao interior da Nova Hollanda, obra moral, critica e recreativa... Por V.J.A

      Lisbon: Vicente Jorge de Castro; Sociedade Propagadora dos Conhecimentos Uteis, 1841. Three volumes bound in one, small octavo; moderate sporadic browning, a good copy in contemporary marbled sheep (joints a bit worn), preserved in folding cloth case. A rare Portuguese imaginary voyage to Australia, not recorded by most of the commentators on the genre.In Viagem ao interior da Nòva Hollanda the anonymous Portuguese narrator, tired of the 'pernicioso contágio da imoralidade' (pernicious contagion of immorality) which is afflicting his homeland, travels from Liverpool to New South Wales in 1836 as manservant to a lord. He spends several years in the colony, and travels extensively in the interior. Fulsome descriptions of the social life of Sydney and the beauties of Australia are used, particularly in the description of the utopian 'Vale da Razão' (Valley of Reason). The society, which is somewhere between a 'pure' and 'representative' monarchy, is ruled by a Grand Council, half of the members of which are elected by householders of both sexes regardless of class, and the other half by the monarch. Ferguson comments on the narrator's hope that 'this new nation will be forever free from the vices of the old world'. Aguiar makes the point that his choice of Australia for the setting of his utopia is entirely arbitrary. He admits to no knowledge of the region he has chosen, and in his prologue, unlike the more conventional utopias, he takes pains to explain that he has no wish to fool the reader into believing that such a journey ever actually took place.Little is known of Vasco José de Aguiar (died October 1855) except that he was secretary of the Conselho de Saude Publica do Reino (Public Health Board) in Lisbon. In his spare time he was the author of two utopian narratives, Viagem ao interior da Nòva Hollanda (below) and Verdades Sonhadas (True Dreams), the latter being a collection of short tales, one of which is a grim satire on human folly and moral corruption in the form of an interplanetary voyage.

Pp. 233-240 bound in between pp. 248 and 249; occasional mis-pagination. Slightly worn, rubbed and bumped. Minor foxing and creasing; small tears; scattered annotations in pink and blue ink.. First collected edition. Scarce. Dubbed 'the Corneille of the Boulevards', Pixerecourt was practically the inventor, and certainly the codifier, of the popular French stage form melodrame. Noted for its stock characters, complex plots, sensationalism, startling coups de theatre, scenic virtuosity and a strongly moral outlook, the melodrame flourished in the early decades of the 19th century. Pixerecourt built a catalogue of nearly 60 such plays, beginning in 1798 with Victor, ou L'enfant de la foret (originally intended as an opera comique), developing an international reputation. He also wrote comedies, tragedies, vaudevilles, feeries, pantomimes and the librettos of some 21 operas comiques... He certainly was not ignorant of the dramatic potential of music, for he worked a great deal of it into his melodramas. His most frequent collaborators in that genre were Louis Alexandre Piccinni and Adrien Quaisain. In both dramas and librettos he saw himself as a successor of Sedaine... Though Pixerecourt's melodramas are best known for the influence they exercised on Romantic drama, they were no less influential on the genre that came to be known as French grand opera."

        Linea De Ward Espana - Cuba - Mexico Servicio Rapido Regular de Pasaje y Carga

      Wendell P. Colton Co., New York - A unique poster from the interwar and prohibition period in 20th century US history. This poster advertisement is for the Ward Line, also known as the New York and Cuba Mail Steamship Company which operated passenger and cargo service out of New York City from 1841 to 1954. The two steamship featured on this poster are S.S. Orizaba and SS. Siboney. During World War I, the U.S. government commandeered Orizaba and Siboney and outfitted them for military duties which was common practice during the war. The Ward Line reacquired the ships after they were decommissioned by the US government. The routes with the Ward Line, from New York to Cuba and Mexico were successful in part because it was a way for people to get around Prohibition. The transatlantic route to Spain was apparently not as successful due to a lack of passengers. A tall ship can be seen off in the distance, which juxtaposed with the modern steamer, points to it as a way of the past. Small tear at bottom center. Hanging metal clips attached. Rare. Poster. Color lithograph. Page measures 36.75" x 24".

        The Life of Mohammed Ali, Viceroy of Egypt

      London: E. Churton,, 1841. To which are appended, the Quadruple Treaty and the Official Memoranda of the English and French Ministers. Small octavo. Original grey-green limp cloth, lettered in gilt on the front cover, marbled endpapers. Engraved vignette title incorporating a portrait of Mohammed Ali, engraved folding map of the Middle East. Engraved title and map lightly foxed. A very good copy, with the four pages of publisher's terminal advertisements. First edition and distinctly rare: Copac records only 3 copies (Oxford, Cambridge, Liverpool, not in the British Library) and OCLC adds just the copy at Columbia. There was a succinct contemporary review in The American Eclectic magazine (January-May issue 1841): "[This] small publication is merely a compilation of facts and documents that are of easy access, but yet such as, at this moment, briefly bring under the eye of the general reader such particulars as he must be desirous of finding in a combined shape, in order to enable him to comprehend the character and history of a most extraordinary man, and the grounds of that misunderstanding which has been for some months keeping, not only England and France, but the whole of Europe, in an unusual ferment and state of anxiety". Mehmet Ali (1769-1849) was an Ottoman viceroy and founder of the Egyptian royal family, who played the leading role during the long-running Egyptian-Ottoman wars (1831-1840). The war was concluded when the British fleet bombarded Egyptian forces in Beirut in early September 1840 and an Anglo-Ottoman force landed, forcing an Egyptian retreat.

        Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York

      1841. NEW YORK CITY. Manual of the Corporation of the City of New-York, 1862. By D. T. Valentine. 25 Volumes. Profusely illustrated with lithographic maps, views, diagrams, plans and document facsimiles, many folding and many either tinted in chromolithography or hand-coloured. 12mo. & 8vo., various sizes, bound in late nineteenth-century three-quarter calf over marbled boards, black morocco spine labels. New York: [Various Publisher's], 1841-66. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a rare complete run of Valentine's extraordinary and justly famous handbook of New York City government, election returns, local history, and institutions of every type. The work is a statistical and graphic tour-de-force on nineteenth-century New York City. It first appeared in 1841 as an unassuming 186 page duodecimo illustrated with a single folding map of the city. By 1849, the manual expanded to a larger octavo format with over twice as many pages and several more maps and views. In the following years each was profusely illustrated with colour-printed lithographs depicting views of Central Park, city infrastructure, distinguished residences & buildings, taverns, inns, etc. in Manhattan, plus folding maps, and engraved plates reproducing early documents. David T. Valentine (1801-1869) spent thirty years as the Deputy to the Clerk and eventually the Clerk of the Common Council (now the City Council) between the years of 1845-1868. He is best known as the compiler of the present publication, having successfully coalesced previously neglected city records that dated back to the Dutch colonial period with contemporaneous statistics and imagery. He also authored History of the City of New York (New York: G.P. Putnam, 1853). Although the publication continued until 1870, the present set represents all the volumes in which Valentine was a contributor through 1866. "The Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York, in twenty-five successive annual volumes, commenced in 1841 and [was] conducted by Mr. Valentine until 1866" (William Loring Andrews). The entire run is rare in commerce, as most often one finds single volumes on the market. ABPC shows only two complete sets sold at auction and none since 1995. Generally a very nice set with minor offsetting a few tears to the fragile fold-out plates as usual. Our set has every illustration called for in Loring Andrew's comprehensive Index, except just one plate from vol. 11 (1852), "Castle Garden, New-York," and one chart from vol. 13 (1854), "Table of the Semi-centennial Mortality..."; however the "Castle Garden" is also listed in the General Index in vol. 18 (1859), p. 396. As the compiler notes, "owing to the carelessness of the binder, the position of many of the inserted plates vary," as we find occasionally in this set. Of the two issues published in 1857, ours is the one with the plate "Old Houses cor. Water & Pine St." appearing just once, at page 529. Some volumes with the original black leather spine labels still attached. Please inquire for a more detailed condition report. Stokes V, p. 1901. William Loring Andrews, An Index to the Illustrations in the Manuals of the Corporation of the City of New York, 1841-1870, New York, 1906, pp. 29-32.

        Reisen in Guiana und am Orinoko während der Jahre 1835–1839

      Leipzig: Verlag von Georg Wigand,, 1841. Nach seinen Berichten und Mittheilungen an die Geographische Gesellschaft in London, herausgegeben von O.A. Schomburgk. Mit einem Vorwort von Alexander von Humboldt und dessen Abhandlung über einige Wichtige astronomische Positionen Guiana's. Mit 6 colorirten Ansichten und einer Karte. Octavo (257 × 162 mm). Near-contemporary dark green half morocco, spine lettered in gilt, gilt rules, marbled sides, endpapers, and edges. Gilt monogram to spine of Francis Burdett Thomas Nevill Money-Coutts, 5th Baron Latymer (1852?-1923). 6 hand-coloured engraved plates, large folding map. Extremities a little rubbed in places, one corner worn, an excellent copy. First German language edition of the German-British naturalist, surveyor and explorer's account of his important expedition to the new colony of British Guiana, published the year following the first English edition. Schomburgk surveyed the coast and the Essequibo, Courantyne, Demerara, and Berbice rivers, incidentally discovering the giant Victoria Regia water lily in 1837 (now renamed Victoria amazonica) and many new species of orchids, one genus of which, Schomburgkia, was named for him. "By his journey across the interior from the Essequibo to Esmeralda on the Orinoco he was enabled to connect his observations with those of his countryman, Humboldt, and to determine astronomically a series of fixed points extending across the watershed of the great rivers of equatorial America" (ODNB). He was, as described by Henze; "the most important explorer of northern South America in the first half of the nineteenth century, the scientific discoverer of British Guiana" (Henze p.78). On his return to England in 1839 to accept the gold medal from the Royal Geographical Society, he proposed that a settlement on the borders of Guiana should be established as soon as possible for both commercial and (having witnessed slave raids from Brazil) humanitarian reasons. In 1840 he was duly sent back as boundary commissioner and he subsequently established the so-called "Schomburgk Line" between British Guiana and the neighbouring countries of Venezuela and Brazil.

Prideaux John Selby "was very gifted as an artist, and the two volumes of "Illustrations of British Ornithology" are outstandingly beautiful. In many people's estimation, the clarity and crispness of his figures give them an austere beauty that is lacking in the pretty lithographs in H.L. Meyer's and John Gould's books about British birds . The cool, classical quality of Selby's plates belongs to the age of elegance and could never have been achieved by the Victorian John Gould. Selby's bird figures were the most accurate delineations of British birds to that date, and the liveliest. After so many books with small, stiff bird portraits, this new atlas with its life-size figures and more relaxed drawing was a great achievement in the long history of bird illustration" (Jackson). Selby showed a "great interest in ornithology from an early age and made his own notes and careful, coloured drawings of the birds in his district. his main interests were ornithology, forestry, and entomology. He was a skilful fisherman and an excellent shot. Selby's major work, "Illustrations of British Ornithology", was published in nineteen parts between 1821 and 1833. It contained some 222 plates etched by Selby (mostly after his own drawings) with the assistance of his brother-in-law Admiral Robert Mitford. In 1819 Mitford was taught to etch by Thomas Bewick in Newcastle; he then taught Selby at Twizell House. Two volumes of text appeared, "Land Birds" in 1825 (revised in 1833 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
