        BARNABY RUDGE;

      1841 - A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty. With Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot K. Browne. Complete in One Volume. London: Chapman and Hall, 1841. Original blind-stamped olive green cloth. First Separate Edition. After NICHOLAS NICKLEBY was published in monthly serial parts with separate plates in 1838-1839, Dickens decided that his future novels would be published in weekly serial parts that included the illustrations within the text -- loosely connected under the title of MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK. He began this project in April 1840 with his tale THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP; after forty-plus parts he completed that tale, and swung into the beginning of BARNABY RUDGE. In November 1841, after a total of 88 weekly parts, BARNABY RUDGE was complete. During this serialization, MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK (containing both novels) was also published in three volumes, one at a time; after serialization (in December 1841), each novel was also published separately in one volume, as with BARNABY RUDGE here. This is why the pagination of BARNABY RUDGE is odd -- with the text running from page [229] to page 306 (second half of Vol II of MH'sC), then from page [1] to page 420 (Vol III). At the conclusion of BARNABY RUDGE, Dickens abandoned this weekly method of plate-less serialization, and reverted to his prior method with MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.~This copy is in the binding variant noted by Smith, of olive green fine-diaper cloth blind-stamped with a chain-like design running around the border's inner surface (as was later used on DOMBEY AND SON). The original endpapers are peach-coated -- one of several colors to be found, without known priority. The volume is in very good condition, with a bit of wear at the extremities of the spine and along the lower edges. The delicate original endpapers are only slightly cracked. Tough to find in better condition. Smith I pp 61-2. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Exotic Conchology; or figures and descriptions of rare, beautiful, or undescribed shells, drawn on stone from the most select specimens; the descriptions systematically arranged on the principles of the natural system.

      - Second edition, edited by S. Hanley. London, H.G. Bohm, 1841. Large-4to (294 x 225mm). pp. 39, with 48 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half red morocco, spine with gilt shell ornaments and gilt lettering, gilt edges. A fine copy in a beautiful binding of this masterpiece on exotic shells. The first edition published in 1821 is one of the rarest items ever published on shells. The present second edition has become scarce as well. The plates are among the most attractive of all shell books and were drawn by the author, whose artistic achievements were of high merit. The specimens were drawn from the most important collections of the time such as the collection of W.J. Broderip, including 7 specimens collected by Captain Bligh in the South Seas. As William Swainson pointed out, early in the nineteenth century, 'to delineate a shell with a proper degree of accuracy, as complete a knowledge of design, colouring and chiaro-scuro, is requisite, as painting a cabinet picture of still life'. One plate shows shells from New Zealand and 5 plates show shells from Australia of which 3 from New Holland and 1 from New South Wales.Nissen ZBI, 4049. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Deerslayer

      London - Richard Bentley 1841 - The first UK edition of this novel by J. Fenimore Cooper. The Deerslayer, or The First Warpath (1841) was the last of James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking tales to be written. Its 1740-1745 time period makes it the first installment chronologically and in the lifetime of the hero of the Leatherstocking tales, Natty Bumppo. The novel's setting on Otsego Lake in central, upstate New York, is the same as that of The Pioneers, the first of the Leatherstocking tales to be published (1823). The Deerslayer is considered to be the prequel to the rest of the Leatherstocking tales. Fenimore Cooper begins his work by relating the astonishing advance of civilization in New York State, which is the setting of four of his five Leatherstocking tales. All half-titles present. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebound in quarter-crushed-morocco bindings with handwritten spine labels. Externallysmart, with just a few marks. Internally, generally firmly bound, though with some pages working loose. Some pages have been expertly repaired, though there are still some closed tears in places. Pages have some foxing and handling marks throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Icones Anatomicae (Anatomischer Atlas), 139 Großfoliotafeln in 3 Bänden (139 Engraved Plates in 3 Volumes), Göttingen 1826 – 1841.

      Gottingae Sumtibus Auctoris, Prostant Libraria Dieterichiana, 1826-1841. - Langenbeck habilitierte sich 1802 in Göttingen und übernahm hier 1808 einen Lehrstuhl für Anatomie, dem 1814 eine erweiterte Professur für Anatomie und Chirurgie folgte. Von 1807 an führte Lagenbeck außerdem eine eigene Klinik für Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde. Langenbecks Leidenschaft blieb die Anatomie, der er auch wissenschaftlich sein Hauptaugenmerk widmete. So gründete er 1828 das „Neue anatomische Theater" in Göttingen und veröffentlichte von 1831 an ein mehrbändiges „Handbuch der Anatomie". Zugleich entstand mit seinem Atlas ein wohl einzigartiges anatomisches Anschauungswerk, zu dem Ernst Julius Gurlt in der Allgemeinen deutschen Biographie anmerkt: „Ein noch bei Weitem großartiger angelegtes Werk war sein anatomischer Atlas, die ‚Icones anatomicae‘, die abtheilungsweise, die Neurologie, Angiologie etc. betreffend, in mehr als 170 Großfoliotafeln von 1826—1841 erschienen, sämmtlich Originalzeichnungen nach Langenbeck's Präparaten, größtentheils in vortrefflich ausgeführten Kupfertafeln bestehend, ein Werk, wie es Deutschland anderweitig nicht besitzt."

        NAPOLEON APOCRYPHE. 1812-1832. HISTORIE DE LA CONQUETE DU MONDE ET DE LA MONARCHIE UNIVERSELLE ... Nouvelle Edition, Revue et Augmentee

      Paris: Chez Paulin, Libraire-Editeur,. 1841. 12mo, pp. [1-6] [1] 2-358 [359-360: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], flyleaves at front and rear,. mid-nineteenth century quarter red calf and marbled boards, spine panel lettered and tooled in gold, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers.. Calf scuffed on rear cover with some loss of surface, else a fine. copy. A rare book ("tre rare," according to an old French. bookseller's note on front flyleaf). (#95156). Third edition, revised and expanded. The first printing of this edition with Geoffroy's final revisions. The first alternate history novel, presenting an imaginary biography of Napoleon that ends with the establishment of a French monarchy governing all Europe and eventually the whole world. "After all the plays, poems and prints of the Napoleonic period, there was little talk of future wars until the events of 1870 directed the attention of the nation to the lost provinces and the great war that must come. For decades after 1815 the absence of any foreign danger was a license for French writers to speculate as fancy suggested. So Louis Geoffroy (1803-1858) took the opportunity to rewrite the course of recent events in his NAPOLEON ET LA CONQUETE DU MONDE (1835), an ingenious work of fiction and an early example of the alternative history. In it, Napoleon did not retreat from Moscow: he turned aside to Saint Petersburg, seized the Czar, restored the ancient kingdom of Poland, and by 1813 ruled all Europe -- save for Britain, Sardinia, and Turkey. In the following year the Emperor finished off the British without any difficulty, although his plan of campaign ignored his main lines of communication. The invasion began with Bernadotte storming north from his bridgehead to capture Norwich, and it ended with Napoleon destroying the main British force, Duke of York commanding, in a great battle at Cambridge on 4 June 1814. The French then entered London. Napoleon would have nothing to do with the British plenipotentiaries, Castelreagh and Liverpool. The Emperor wanted his new subjects to know who was their master; and they learned their future in the Decree of London, a document in which Geoffroy displayed the most admirable malice, great inventiveness, and a sound understanding of imperial ambition ... That was one French way of changing the world for the better." - Clarke, Voices Prophesying War (1992), pp. 18-9. Alkon, Origins of Futuristic Fiction, pp. 129-53. Clarke, Voices Prophesying War: Future Wars 1763-3749 (1992), p. [224] (citing this edition). Versins, Encyclopédie de l'Utopie, des Voyages Extraordinaires et de la Science Fiction, pp. 360-66.

        Autograph letter signed "Francilla"

      3 pp., densely written on two conjugate octavo leaves. Weimar, March 4, 1841. To Madame Maschinka Schubert, "famous artist." With integral address panel. In German, with translation. An important letter, describing the German premiere of Bellini's "La Sonnambula" by the celebrated contralto singing Amina, one of her most famous roles. "Over the course of six days in Leipzig, I sang three times, came here the other morning, where the next rehearsals were already awaiting me... Besides La Sonnambula and Romeo, I also sang Norma; all three performances were sold out... and applause was just what you would wish for in Germany. The Sonnambula was performed here for the first time. I confess that I enjoyed greatly making this dear opera known... The tenor Götze is very good and sang and acted with a passion... So the opera caused a big splash. I was called out twice, which, I was told, happens never, or at least only very rarely..."Slightly soiled and foxed; minor tears and paper defects; creased at folds. . Pixis was the foster-daughter of the pianist and composer Johann Peter Pixis (1788-1874), "who had recognized her vocal gifts... Pixis was her principal teacher, although she studied further with Josephine Fodor-Mainville, Henriette Sontag, Rossini and Paer... Her voice was powerful and sonorous, free from strain at louder dynamics and, when required, softly beautiful. Among her most renowned roles were Amina (La sonnambula), Romeo (I Capuleti e i Montecchi), Norma, Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia) and Gabriella (Mercadante's Gabriella di Vergy). Pixis conceived his operetta Die Sprache des Herzens for her, and Pacini wrote for her the leading role in his Saffo (1840)." Gaynor G. Jones et al in Grove online Madame Schubert, a coloratura soprano, was the wife of Franz Schubert (1808-1878), violinist and composer, eldest son of the composer and double bass player Franz Anton Schubert (1768-1827), and daughter of the Kapellmeister Georg Abraham Schneider (1770-1839) and singer Caroline Portmann. "She made her début in London in 1832 and was later a valuable, versatile member of the Dresden Opera, her range including soubrette and tragic roles." Grove online

        Inaugural Address of President Harrison. National Intelligencer .... Extra. Thursday, March 4, 1841

      [Washington, 1841. Folio broadside. Very rare first printing of Harrison's inaugural address: the longest in United States history and what many believed caused his death after only thirty-two days in office, the shortest tenure of any American President. On a cold and wet March 4, 1841, newly-elected President William Henry Harrison famously delivered this address without coat or hat. The longest inaugural address in United States history, his anti-Jackson/Van Buren, pro-Whig agenda took over two hours to deliver. In the days following the address and the inaugural balls, Harrison caught a cold. The cold lingered, and pneumonia and pleurisy set in. Harrison would die on April 4, 1841, on his thirty-second day in office -- the shortest tenure of any American President -- becoming the first President to die in office. We could locate but five surviving examples of this broadsheet extra, with none in the Library of Congress. (24 x 19 1/2 inches). Text in 5 columns, divided by single rules.

        The Presentation of a newly-elected Chief of the Huron Tribe, Canada

      Published for the Proprietor by Messrs. Colnaghi & Puckle, London 1841 - A very rare image of the Huron Tribal Council, and the presentation of Robert Symes as an honorary chief. Robert Symes, an Englishman, was a lawyer, judge and the first chief of the Quebec city police (serving from 1838 to 1841). His full Huron name was Robert Symes Esquire Hotwatsi ('Hotwatsi' means hot whiskey in the Huron language). The present image records his election as an honorary chief of the Huron tribe in Loretteville (now Wendake) about 12 miles north of Quebec City. Thielcke was born in St. James's Palace in London where his parents were both members of the Royal household. He trained at the British Royal Academy Schools, and exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1805 and 1816, and at the British Institution in 1811, 1815, and 1816. At some point Thielcke was appointed "Portrait Painter to HRH the Duchess of York", a title that served him well in Canada and the United States. The date of the appointment is not known but it seems he retained this appointment until 1820, when she died. Thielcke was in Quebec by November 1832 when he advertised as a portrait and miniature painter and he spent the rest of his professional career in Canada and America. He produced some very accomplished portraits, but this is probably his best known North American work. Château Ramezay Museum, in Montreal has the original oil painting on canvas on which the present image is based, it is titled "Presentation at Lorette of the newly elected chief at the Huron Tribal Council, 1840". McCord Museum M20009; National Archives of Canada, R9266-2676 & R9266-2677; and W.H. Coverdale Collection acc. no. 1970-188-641). Hand-coloured lithograph drawn on stone by H. Lynch after Thielcke, printed by Day & Son, sheet size: 21 3/8 x 16 3/8 inches. Repairs to margins, some expertly closed tears.

        Calcutta from Garden Reach. HMS Calliope Saluting. [Original Watercolour].

      1841 - 1841. Watercolour on paper, ca. 31x54 cm (12 x 21 ¼ in). Signed in ink "G. Meynell" in the left lower corner. Captioned and dated in pencil on verso by the artist. Recently mounted and matted. A very good watercolour. The watercolour shows the moment of the British warship HMS Calliope going through the Garden Reach - the entrance to the port of Kolkata on the Hooghly River. "The port of Kolkata is the oldest operational port in India, having originally been constructed by the British East India Company, and it was the premier port in British India in the 19th century" (Wikipedia). The port's buildings and a grand residence on the bank to the left, as well as a boat carrying two Europeans being rowed by Indians, are shown in the watercolour. The time of the event shown by the artist is known to be August-September 1841 when HMS Calliope arrived to Kolkata from Canton with $6 million of ransom money taken during the marine operations of the First Opium War (1839-1842). HMS Calliope (28 guns, built in 1837) participated in the blockade of the mouth of the Pearl River and operations at Canton in 1841. Circa Aug 1841 it departed for Calcutta with the bulk of the Canton ransom money (See: Clowes, W.L. The Royal Navy: A History from the Earliest Times to the Present. In 7 vols. Vol. 6. London, 1901. P. 294). The artist, Francis Meynell, was a midshipman on Calliope (See: Allen, J. The New Navy List and General Record of the Service of Officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. London, 1853. P. 146). "Meynell entered the navy as midshipman during the campaign in China, on board the Calliope. He was mentioned for the assistance rendered at the capture on 13 March 1841 of the last fort protecting the approaches of the city of Canton" (National Maritime Museum (Greenwich) on-line). [Later he served as] mate in the Penelope during anti-slavery operations off the west coast of Africa, [and was promoted Lieutenant in 1846]. During the Crimean War 1853-55 he served on HMS Royal George. His illustrated journal mostly dedicated to the Baltic campaign of the Crimean War (1853-55) is now in the collection of the National Maritime Museum (Greenwich).

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      432 pages with diagrams. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Title in red and green. Volume II (2). (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841?"56 and 1859?"62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". The Chess Player's Chronicle became the first successful English-language chess magazine. In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. O'Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle

      Vienna, in Commission der Schmidlschen Buchhandlung, 1831-1841. - 8vo. 34 vols. (4 series). With 100 engr. plates (some folding) and 8 lithographs. Contemp. half calf with double labels to gilt spine. Marbled endpapers; all edges marbled. Complete copy with all 108 plates. "Almost never encountered complete" (cf. Deuticke, Schönborn cat. IV, 295). This set, one of the most significant Austrian topographical works ever produced, is divided into four series: "Viertel unter dem Wienerwald" (1831-33, 7 vols.), "Viertel unter dem Manhartsberg" (1833-35, 7 vols.), "Viertel Ober-Wienerwald" (1835-38, 14 vols.), and "Viertel Ober-Manhartsberg" (1839-41, 6 vols.). The fine plates depict views of castles, monasteries, ruins, and landscapes, as well as historical documents. The collation of the present copy departs slights from that provided by Nebehay/Wagner: no. 50 "Die Capelle in Tulln" used as frontispiece (transposed with no. 49 "Schloss Greifenstein"), no. 83 "Der Lunzer See" used as frontispiece (transposed with no. 82 "Schloss Stiebar"). - According to Czeike, most of the volumes already published were destroyed in 1835 at the command of the government, as the title pages incorrectly gave the author's name with the noble title "von Sickingen". After being sentenced to a fine, the author published the subsequent volumes anonymously. - Very appealing set in uniform contemp. half calf; some volumes rubbed rather strongly, otherwise perfect. The volumes of the "Viertel Ober-Wienerwald" series are very ably bound in the uniform style around 1900. Interior is uncommonly clean and spotless. Last in the collection of Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Engel; several volumes have previous stamped ownership "A. G. E. von Seydel". Mayer coll. 7933. Eckl coll. III, 227. Czeike V, 181.

        Statistical Reports on the Sickness, Mortality, & Invaliding among Her Majesty's Troops serving in Ceylon; the Tenasserim Provinces; and the Burmese Empire. Prepared from the Records of the Army Medical Department, and War-Office Returns.

      London: printed by W. Clowes and Sons for Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1841 - Folio (327 × 205 mm). Ex-Royal College of Surgeons' Library, ink-stamp and cancellation to title page only, light browning throughout, slight staining at the inner margin of prelims. and last few leaves, but overall very good in modern drab paper-covered boards, old label mounted on the upper board. Numerous tables, 5 of them folding. First edition. Tulloch's work represents the first fruits of the statistical enquiries into mortality that he began while serving in Burma. His painstaking gathering and interpretation of such data was to lead to his selection with Sir John McNeill to inquire into the Commissariat in the Crimea, resulting in controversial criticism of military arrangements and confrontation with Lord Lucan at a specially convened Board. "The Board's report rejected the findings of McNeill and Tulloch, shifting responsibility for supply difficulties from the Crimea to civilian departments in Whitehall. In 1857 Tulloch published a detailed justification of his actions in The Crimean Commission and the Chelsea Board, which drew further criticism from [the Commissary-General] but secured parliamentary approval; he was appointed KCB in April 1857." This copy inscribed, in a secretarial hand, "Presented to the Library of The Royal College of Surgeons by Sir James M'Grigor". M'Grigor, Wellington's Chief of Medical Staff in the Peninsula and a radical innovator of front-line medical practice, rose to become director-general of the Army Medical Department and instigated numerous key reforms to aid in the medical and social well-being of the British Army, one of which was the collection and collation of such medical reports from all military stations. Uncommon: five copies only on Copac, three of which appear to be in BL; OCLC lists just one copy in the NY Academy of Medicine. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Indian Utensils and Arms

      Paris, Coblentz and London 1841 - A rare India proof of this elaborately composed grouping of Indian artifacts based on drawings made of items that Prince Maximilian purchased and brought back to Europe as well as belongings sketched by Bodmer in situ and retained by their original Indian owners. This cornucopia of Indian manufacturing includes 2. stone knife found near New Harmony, Indiana; 4. gunstock type club; 5. lance, Sauk and Fox Tribe; 6. shield; 8. rawhide storage container, ?Cheyenne Tribe; 9. moccasins, ?Iroquois Tribe; 10. quiver, bow and arrows, ?Crow or Sioux Tribe; 12. pipe, Mandan Tribe; 14 ball, Mandan or Hidatsa Tribe; 15. hoop and pole game, Mandan Tribe; 16. war whistle, Mandan Tribe; 17. drum, Mandan Tribe; 18. moccasins, Sioux Tribe. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1. Aquatint engraving by Du Casse after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, issue with date at end of English imprint. Small tear to lower blank margin not affecting plate area. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ruins of the Palace, Madura

      published by Thomas Daniell, London 1841 - One the great images from the greatest illustrated work on India. Present day Madurai was the capital "of the Nayakas who ruled the southernmost part of the Tamil zone in the 16th-17th centuries . [The palace was] traditionally associated with Tirumala Nayaka, the most famous of the Madurai rulers in the middle of the 17th century, the palace in the southern part of the city is the grandest royal structure still standing in the Tamil country" (Martinelli/Michell p.154). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated work on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales. Abbey Travel II 420, no.43; cf. Lowndes I, p.588; Martinelli/Michell India Yesterday and today '102 Madurai, palace'; cf. RIBA 799-804; cf. Sutton The Daniells (1954) p.156; cf. Tooley 172. Aquatint by Thomas & William Daniell, after a drawing by Thomas Daniell, coloured by hand, on 'Whatman' wove paper. Image size: 16 5/8 x 23 5/8 inches.
