        Tab 75 Cocus Wildmaniana

       A wonderfully detailed chromolithograph of a tropical palm by João Barbosa Rodrigues (1842-1909) from his breathtaking book "Sertum Palmarum Brasiliensium". This book was published in Brussels in 1903. This print is of superior quality on bright, crisp paper and in good condition overall. In good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing. Director of the botanical gardens and Professor of Botany at the University of Rio de Janiero, João Barbosa Rodrigues was a highly respected scientist, researcher and illustrator who did much to advance knowledge of Brazilian natural history and habitat.  Early nineteenth-century European and American explorers had frequently mentioned the large variety of palms to be found in South America, most noted among them the German naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt.  He described the overwhelming impression made by ?that vigour and freshness of vegetable life which characterizes the climate of the tropics? and singled out a particular need for ?a large number of separate studies of the foliage of trees; of leafy, flowering, or fruitbearing stems; or prostrate trunks.?  Less that one hundred years later, João Barbosa Rodrigues answered Humboldt?s call in this, perhaps one of his finest publications, depicting the palms of Brazil.  His illustrations contain both scientific and aesthetic appeal and delineate the various stages of growth of the palm.  However, the publication is also significant in that is was completed by a native Brazilian rather than a European or American botanist and thus shows the growing interest and growth in science in both the New World as well as the Old World.

        The Danube: Its History, Scenery, and Topography (First Edition)

      Virtue and Co, London 1842 - FIRST EDITION, first printing. Original half brown morocco leather with raised bands gilt lettering, pebbled green cloth boards, spine slightly darkended with the gilding mutted, lightly rubbed, marbled endpapers, engraved frontis, title page age-toned. Plates nice and bright with no foxing. No previous owner's names, not exlibrary. Overall in EXCELLENT condition. A good gift. William Henry Bartlett (born March 26, 1809, died September 13, 1854) was a British artist, best known for his numerous steel engravings. Bartlett was born in Kentish Town, London in 1809. He was apprenticed to John Britton (1771-1857), and became one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation. He travelled throughout Britain, and in the mid and late 1840s he travelled extensively in the Balkans and the Middle East. He made four visits to the United States between 1835 and 1852. In 1835, Bartlett first visited the United States in order to draw the buildings, towns and scenery of the northeastern states. The finely detailed steel engravings Bartlett produced were published uncolored with a text by Nathaniel Parker Willis as American Scenery; or Land, Lake, and River: Illustrations of Transatlantic Nature. American Scenery was published by George Virtue in London in 30 monthly installments from 1837 to 1839. Bound editions of the work were published from 1840 onward. His impressions of Canada were collected in Canadian Scenery in 1842. Bartlett made sepia wash drawings the exact size to be engraved. His engraved views were widely copied by artists, but no signed oil painting by his hand is known. Engravings based on Bartlett's views were later used in his posthumous History of the United States of North America, continued by B. B. Woodward and published around 1856. William Henry Bartlett died of fever on board of a French ship off the coast of Malta returning from his last trip to Israel, in 1854. Bartletts primary concern was to render "lively impressions of actual sights", as he wrote in the preface to The Nile Boat (London, 1849). Many views contain some ruin or element of the past including many scenes of churches, abbeys, cathedrals and castles, and Nathaniel Parker Willis described Bartlett's talent thus: "Bartlett could select his point of view so as to bring prominently into his sketch the castle or the cathedral, which history or antiquity had allowed".

        The Holy Bible

      London - A. Fullerton and Co. 1842 - A beautifully illustrated copy of the Christian Bible. With forty-four engraved plates, including a frontispiece to each volume and a folding frontispiece map to volume I. Also with decorative papers for family registers, left blank. With explanatory notes, practical observations, and copious marginal references by Thomas Scott, and an introductory essay and numerous additional critical, explanatory and practical notes by William Symington. William Symington was a Reformed Presbyterian (Cameronian) minister. Among the Reformed Presbyterians Symington, like his brother, was a commanding influence. A noted evangelical in the covenanting tradition, he was none the less outward-looking and deeply involved in social issues such as slavery, illiteracy, and poor working conditions. Like Thomas Chalmers, whom he in part resembled, he advocated a Scotland cleansed and dedicated. Besides his published sermons, he recorded his views in The Atonement and Intercession of Jesus Christ (1834) and Messiah the Prince (1839; reissued 1881 with memoir). The latter was an important exposition of Cameronian ecclesiological thought. (DNB)Complete in three volumes. Condition: In full morocco bindings. Externally smart, with just some marks to the boards and some shelfwear. Front joints of volumes I,II and III starting; rear joint of volume I also starting. Internally, firmly bound. Fron hinges of volumes I and III strained, but firm. There is some off-setting from the plates. Some foxing to plates, and some scattered spotting to the pages. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Gesangbuch fur die Evangelische Kirche in Wurttemberg

      Stuttgart: Verlags-Comptoir des Nueun Gesangbuchs. 1842. First. First edition. Full leather, gilt ruled, inset with glass-bead decorated floral pattern on front and rear board. Later gift inscription in German, modest rubbing and wear at the corners, slight foxing, a very good plus copy. Apparently a songbook prepared for the 25th anniversary of the reign of the King of Wurttemberg, printing the lyrics with title index, index of composers, and brief biographical information. Notable mostly for the very unusual binding of tiny glass beads decorated with floral patterns on a black background, worked in beads of blue, gold, and green, surrounded by a stylized leaf pattern in two shades of green. A few of the tiny beads are missing at the margins, but the decoration is sound and stable, and is otherwise unflawed. An unusual binding, and a lovely book. .

        Morning Line for Albany. From the Steamboat Pier, Foot of Barclay-Street. Passage $1 50. The Low-Pressure Steamboat ALBANY, Capt. J.G. Jenkins.

      New York: 1842 - A decorative broadside advertising "The ALBANY". The fare is listed at a $1.50 - in 1825, under the Livingston-Fulton monopoly of the Hudson River, it had been $4 or more. 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 in the press of the 1840s as paired with Captain Gorham of the "Troy". Captain Jenkins had a long career, working on the Philadelphia route in the 1820s and there followed a long career on the Hudson. The captain's names seem to be invoked as a reassurance for the traveling public, as there were often fires on the steamboats. The worst disaster was to arrive 10 years later in 1852, when the "Henry Clay" burned south of Yonkers, killing many notables, including Andrew Jackson Downing, the architect & landscape designer. 9 5/8 x 10 1/2", a sml. chip in the top affecting the "i" in 'Morning", trimmed a little close on the right side with slt. loss, a little marked but remarkably good. Handwritten in pen at bottom "Monday April 11th" [1842]; with a starboard view of sidewheel steamer ALBANY.A handsome piece.

Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas, author and antiquary wrote many titles however it is the History of the orders of the Knighthood of the British Empire for which he is best remembered, originally issued as parts at a cost of between £3000 and £4000. In Muir's view "it is doubtful whether the technical quality of these prints could be surpassed today"; the plates 'using gold leaf. are truly magnificent' (Muir 152) This work continues to be a valuable source for historians of the subject. 36.5*27cm, very heavy 17kg packed) A lovely set of a title that rarely come on the market!

Ceux qui exécuterons apprécieront combien l?artiste a eu à vaincre de difficultés pour se renfermer, tout en innovant, dans les strictes exigeances de la mesure, pour motiver les accidents ordinaires de l?écriture musicale, sourtout pour observer fidelement dans ces petits opéras la double unité de l?action dramatique et de la mélodie.?
