        The Stone of Unction

      London 1842 - David Roberts (1796-1864) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and at the age of ten began an apprenticeship under house painter and decorator, Gavin Beugo. From there he went on to theater stage painting throughout the United Kingdom and then devoted himself to becoming an artist. In August 1838, Roberts traveled to Egypt with a plan to produce drawings to be later turned into paintings and lithographs. He was one of the first to have been granted the privilege of freely roaming and entering many sacred areas from the extremity of Nubia to the Mediterranean, and his images were therefore the first exposure that Europeans had to such splendid, distant places. His work is meticulously precise and yet splendidly evocative, with a skillful and rigid adherence to the truth of costume, detail and effect. Roberts set off on his great and hazardous expedition in August, 1838. In the next eleven months, he visited cities and sites throughout Egypt, Syria, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and other Near Eastern countries. The result of Roberts's voyage was the three-volume, color-plate book “The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia”. When it was published in England several years after his journey, Roberts's “The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia” drew extraordinary acclaim. His ambitious project gave views of spectacular landscapes and ancient man-made wonders that viewers had never glimpsed, but Roberts did not confine his renderings to architecture and natural terrain alone. Roberts gave equal attention to the costumes and lifestyles of the Near Eastern peoples. In this way these images both instructed and delighted their viewers with superb ethnological descriptions, sweeping panoramic landscapes, and detailed architectural studies. Because of the unparalleled significance of his groundbreaking work, he was honored with the prestigious award of election to the Royal Academy. This superb tinted lithograph with hand-coloring, The Stone of Unction, from "The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, Nubia" measures 15" x 16.75" and is in mint condition. The Stone of Unction at Golgotha is a pilgrimage site where Jesus' body was anointed and prepared for burial after his crucifixion. Illustrated in this well detailed and richly colored lithograph are male and female pilgrims to the site, The Church of the Holy Speulchre, praying to the stone. The temple is decorated with candles and lanterns. Inscribed on the lithograph is "Stone of Unction, Church of the Holy Sepulchre" and "Roberts, March 30th 1839."

        The Encyclopedia of Ornament

      London: William Pickering, 1842. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Book. 4to - over 9¾. 6 pp., plus 59 mostly color plates, including title page, in important work to Gothic Revival which was then sweeping England and elsewhere. Shaw published this and other works that stoked and slaked interest in the movement whose roots can be traced to the Romantic Movement that took hold in the late eighteenth century. Shaw, in his meticulous rendering of Gothic ornamentation as expressed in various forms and objects anticipated the majesterial comprehensive works on ornament to come by Owen Jones, Racinet and others. This book can be enjoyed for both the intrinsic beauty of its plates and for its systematic presentation of form. Condition is VG. Plain cloth binding is tight. Some light foxing and toning on some plates, but fortunately, the more brilliant and exciting plates tend to be less afflicted by these issues.

        ANTICHE OPERE IN PLASTICA. Discoperte, raccolte e dichiarate da Gio. Pietro Campana, Romano. Roma, dalla tipografia Salviucci, 1842.

      In folio (cm. 48,0) frontespizio con grande vignetta impressa + tav.A + LXVII tavv. Lievi fioriture sui margini bianchi di qualche carta, altrimenti fresco e ben conservato esemplare. Mz. pelle coeva con tit. in oro al dorso, ma con sbucciature e mancanze. Br. orig. illustrata, conservata. Rara prima edizione di questo superbo catalogo illustrante l'importante collezione di terracotte e bassorilievi formata dal marchese Campana nella prima metà del XIX secolo. La seconda edizione è del 1851 in due voll. per un totale di 120 tavv. contro le 68 del nostro esemplare, che dunque potrebbe essere uno dei due voll. costituenti la prima edizione. Non possiamo esserne certi nella misura in cui la bibliografia consultata riferisce solo della seconda edizione ( Rossetti, 1476; manca ad Olschki, Choix, Graesse, etc.). Impresso sulla brochure originale compare la dicitura "Distribuzione" seguita dal numero 9 manoscritto. Potrebbe trattarsi della tiratura ovvero di una dicitura legata ad una pubblicazione per dispense, magari in sottoscrizione, ma non azzardiamo alcuna conclusione a riguardo.

        Histoire de Joseph, accompagneée de dix figures, rélatives aux principaux evenemens de la fils de ce fils du patriarche Jacob, et gravées sur les modèles du fameux Reimbrandt.Amsterdam, Jean Neaulme, 1757. Folio. With title-page printed in red and black, and 10 full-page etched plates. Contemporary boards.

      Cohen-de Ricci 210; STCN (4 copies); for Caylus: Lugt, Marques des Collections 2919. First and only edition of this children's book, beautifully illustrating the biblical story of Joseph and intended "as much for the improvement of morals as for the principles of drawing", as the title-page notes. Anne-Claude-Philippe comte de Caylus aimed to inspire his readers with a love of virtue and an appreciation of Rembrandt's masterly and evocative drawings. The original drawings have been in the Louvre since 1842, but they have lost their attribution to Rembrandt and are now sometimes ascribed to Rembrandt's pupil Gerbrand van den Eeckhout. The first recorded owner of the drawings was the painter Charles-Antoine Joseph Coypel, an acquaintance of the author.The title-page has a cancel slip correcting "De l'Academie Francoise" to "Honoraire de l'Académie des Inscriptions & des Belles-lettres".Owner's inscription on pastedown, binding chafed, spine damaged. Otherwise in good condition. A fine series of 10 etchings.

        Letters from Hofwyl by a Parent, on the Educational Institutions of De Fellenberg. With An Appendix, Containing Woodbridge's Sketches of Hofwyl, Reprinted from the Annals of Education.

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans 1842. - Louisa Mary Barwell (1800-1885) was the daughter of inventor and writer on music, Richard Mackenzie Bacon (1776-1844), and from the age of eighteen, she was associated with her father in the editorship of the Quarterly Musical Magazine and Review (1818-1830). After her marriage to wine merchant John Barwell, she turned her attention to the composition of educational works, contributing regularly to the Quarterly Journal of Education and the New Monthly Magazine. She was particularly known for her writings on music education. The Barwells became friends with Philipp Emmanuel von Fellenberg and enrolled their sons at his school in Switzerland. Later her husband, who shared her interest in education, was instrumental in securing the success of a scheme by which a charity day school for girls in Norwich was converted into an industrial training school for girls. Louisa Barwell also wrote books for children, including Little Lessons for Little Learners (1833) and Pleasant Stories in Simple Language (1850). Her popular book, Childhood's Hours (1851), was used in the royal nursery by Queen Victoria's children. (See Oxford DNB). Octavo. xii, 372 + 32 pp. publisher's catalogue.

        Traité sur l'art de restaurer les Difformités de la Face, selon la méthode par déplacement, ou méthode francaise. Text und Atlas.

The first systematic textbook and atlas of plastic surgery of the face, and the second general work on plastic surgery published in France. - Labat (1832) and Blandin (1836) produced the first treatise on plastic surgery in France, followed in 1842 by Serre. The double - page plates are pre- and post - operative portraits, with insets of operative techniques. - Serre was the chief exponent of the "sliding" or "French" method, which he applied in his textbook in various facial operations. The method was intended originally for eyelid reconstruction, but was applied to replacing other parts "on the flat." - - Michel Serre (1799.1848) was the student and successor of Jacques Mathieu Delpech (1777-1832) who performed the first rhinoplasty in France in 1823 (see G-M 5741.1) and pioneered in the correction of congenital facial deformities. Delpech, however, wrote no separate work on plastic surgery. - Serre's textbook incorporates his teachings. Zeis gives Serre credit for some new additions to plastic surgery, and points out that his first plate shows implantation of skin from the palm of the hand to reconstruct the columella. This is acknowledged despite the conflicts between German and French surgeons over priority in the new field. Zeis, of course, was a great partisan of the Germans, and claimed that Dieffenbach had originated the so-called "French" method which Serre promoted (ibid. 102-03). Serre, while not claiming that he invented it, argues in his historical account that the method originated in France. Exceptionally rare on the market in any condition. - - Recens.: Zeis in Schm.

        Precis le redressement des dents, ou expose des moyens rationales des prevenir et de orriger les deviationes des dents; suivi de quelques reflexions sur les obturateurs du palais.

      . Seconde Edition. - Paris, Bechet Jne et Labe, Libraires, 1842, 8°, VI, 178 pp., 8 lith. Tafeln mit 16 Abb., orig. broschiertes Exemplar in Halbleinenband.. Second edition (first: 1841) of a classic work in 19th century technical dentistry presenting several new procedures and instruments., with tipped-in single-page of author's text recommending the present work to colleagues, in modern marbled cloth-backed boards, title lettered in gilt on backstrip, uncut, orig. printed wrappers bound in. - J. M. Alexis Schange (1807-?, French) "in 1841 published the first work confined to orthodontics. He introduced a modification of the screw, the clamp band, and, in 1842, 3 years after the vulcanization process had been developed, rubber bands (actually, sections of rubber tubing). He also coined the term anchorage." Norman Wahl, Orthodontics in 3 millennia. Chapter 1: Antiquity to the mid-19th century. American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, 127/2 (2005), pp.255-259. - "Schange's "Precis sur le redressement des dents," etc., (1841), follows closely the idea of his countryman Lefoulon. He describes the development of the teeth, their eruption and the procedure of the eruption of the permanent teeth. He, like many of his contemporaries, did not favor the extraction of the deciduous teeth, but did not agree with Lefoulon that the arch narrowed on account of this. - Schange accurately described the occlusion of the teeth both bucco- lingually and mesiodistally, and recognized four varieties of irregularities. - - 1. Abnormalities in number. - 2. Abnormalities of form. - 3. Abnormalities of position. Migration and transposition. - 4. Abnormalities of direction. - a. Abnormalities of direction of individual teeth. - 1. Deviation anteriorly. 2. Deviation posteriorly. 3. Deviation laterally. 4. Deviation rotations. - b. Abnormalities of relation of the dental arches. 1. Protrusion, retrusion and inversion. - c. Abnormalities of occlusion. - - The fourth variety of Schange particularly attracts our attention: "The varieties which the teeth may present in the relation of their direction are undoubtedly the most frequent, and at the same time those which most merit out attention because they are those which are most amenable to surgical treatment. These varieties are of two kinds, according as to whether they consist in abnormality of direction of the teeth themselves or in an abnormal relationship of the dental arches to one another. - "The former, those which depend on simple change in the direction of the teeth, are divided into ANTERIOR, POSTERIOR, LATERAL and ROTARY obliquities * * *." The varieties of direction of the second class, those which depend on the abnormal relation of the arches to each other, have been given the name of protrusion, retrusion, etc. Finally, from the combination of simultaneous existence of several or all the deformities just outlined and classified, there results an arrangement which is termed ENGRENEMENT (interdigitation of the cusps). - "It is one of the most obstinate of the abnormal conditions which dental art has to overcome * * *." - Schange mentions three ways of obtaining space in correcting irregularities. First, by filing, which he disapproved of. Second, extraction, which allows too much space. Third, by the enlargement of the arch. - He also devised a form of anchorage, a marked improvement over the crib of Delabarre, because of its simplicity and smaller size, It consisted of pieces of wire or narrow strips of gold bent to conform closely to the necks of the two or three teeth that it surrounded, with a spur attached to rest on the occlusal surfaces. This space was used primarily to prevent the crib from slipping and irritating the peridental membrane. It thus served a different purpose than the one of Delabarre, in that it was not intended to interfere with occlusion, but for the purpose of anchorage, and in securing the ligatures. - Schange also described three kinds of ligatures-silk, linen or grass line, and fine platinum or gold wires. He was not in favor of metal ligatures, on account of the difficulty of attachment, but preferred the silk or grass line, for they absorbed moisture and required little attention. Numerous appliances were devised by Schange. In connection with these, mention must be made of the screw as used by him. For the first time, we find the screw applied in regulating appliances on a clamp band, although having been used previously, in direct movement of the teeth, as a threaded wire by Delabarre; by Lintott, Carabelli, and others, "the honor of the introduction" (of the screw) "of which has been erroneously divided between Dwinnel of New York, Gaine of England" and Schange of Paris."

      New York:. 1842.. A decorative broadside advertising "The New Low-Pressure Steamboat Troy, Captain A. Gorham". The fare is listed at a $1 - in 1825, under the Livingston-Fulton monopoly of the North River Steamboat Line, it had been $4. The monopoly was dissolved in 1824 following the landmark Gibbons v. Ogden Supreme Court case, opening New York waters to all competitive steam navigation companies. In 1819 there were only nine steamboats in operation on the Hudson River; by 1840, customers could choose from more than 100 in service. This Steamboat and Captain were advertised at the head of "Benjamin's New Map of the Hudson River, 1844". 9 1/2 x 10 5/8", a sml. closed tear in the top margin through the "g" of "Morning"; a little marked but remarkably good. Handwritten in pen at bottom "Tuesday May 10th" [1842]; with a port view of sidewheel steamer TROY. A handsome piece.

        A fine collection of 135 gouache paintings of aquatic and mostly exotic birds from South America (many from Brazil), but also Africa, Asia and New Zealand and Australia.

      mounted on thick dark grey paper with framed lines. The drawings measure 28 x 22 cm. and were painted around 1842 and are clearly by one hand. Contemporary boards, neatly rebacked in richly decorated half calf. A beautiful collection of superbly painted exotic aquatic birds. Each drawing has a label with the scientific Latin name, as well as the place of origin. The birds are shown from the side, painted with body- and watercolours. According to the former owner this album once belonged to the famous convent of Melk (Austria). The convent had in the 19th century an important ornithological collection whose curator was Vinzenz Staufer (1821-1889). In the 'Mitth. des Ornith. Vereins in Vienna' (year 1878, fasc. 2) it says that the ornithological collection of the convent contains some rarities such as the 'langschwänzigen Schmarotzer- oder kleinen Raubmöve (Lestris crepidata)' which figures in the present album 'Lestris crepidata. Linné Hudsonbay'. In several occasions dates and places or gifts of the birds are indicated such as 'Alca Cristatatella... aus Petersburg 1835 erhalten [received from St. Petersburg in 1835]' and 'Recurvirostra Americana.. . Von B. Goul den... 1842 erhalten [received from B. Goul in 1842]. Another note is 'Lerstris' im July 1834 in Island geschossen [... shot in Iceland in July 1834]. An even more intersting note is 'Hämatopus palliates' m. Von Natterer erhalten ... Brasil' [.... received from Natterer ... Brazil]. There are 4 more plates with the name of Natterer of birds from Brazil and Chili. From this note it is clear that the Convent of Melk received birds from Johann Natterer. Johann Natterer (1787-1843) was a famous Austrian naturalist and explorer. Natterer was the zoologist of an expedition send out to Brazil in 1817 by Emperor Franz II. Other naturalists like Martius and Spix were likewise part of the expedition. Natterer stayed 18 years in Brazil and sent back to Vienna 12.293 birds apart from reptiles, fishes and mammals. "Das Ergebnis waren... Tierpräparate, darunter 12.293 Vögel, 1146 Säugetiere, 1678 Reptilien und Amphibien... (J. Dörflinger. Die neue Welt Österreich und die Erforschung Amerikas p. 90). / /32 birds come from Brazil and 18 from America and 8 from Australia and New Zealand the remaining birds come from India, Surinam, China, Japan, Philippines etc. The grey paper on which the plates have been mounted has occasional marginal staining, touching in a very few cases the drawings. In a few instances a few plates have some spotting or traces of tape at corner. The bold colouring of the plates makes this album particularly attractive.

        Natural History of the Insects of India, containing upwards of two hundred and twenty figures and descriptions.

      A new edition by J.O. Westwood. London, Henry G. Bohn, 1842. 4to (300 x 240mm). pp. vi, 102, with 58 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half morocco, spine with gilt lines and lettering (minor skilful repair). The most beautiful work on the insects of India. The first edition was published in 1800. The superb handcoloured plates capture the metallic brilliance and iridescence of the exotic insects. Most of the plates depict butterflies together with exotic plants. Edward Donovan (1768-1837) published various zoological and entomological works. He owned one of the most extensive natural history collections of his time, housed in his private museum, the well-known London Museum and Institute of Natural History./ " ... the paint is laid on so thickly that it is frequently impossible to see the engraved lines underneath. The already rich colouring is heightened by the addition of burnished highlights, albumen overglazes and metallic paints to give an overall effect reminiscent of the work of a miniaturist. Surprisingly, these techniques often combined to produce a very pleasing and delicate effect: the multiple ruses of the colourist triumph over the draughtsman's numerous failures. Donovan overreached himself and died penniless ..." (Dance, 'Art of Natural History' p. 87). The 'Insects of India' is the first illustrated publication dealing with the entomology of India.//Provenance: Name of Kikumaro Okano on free endpaper.//Nissen ZBI, 1143.
