        Dickinson's Embossed Cards. First Specimen Book

      Boston: Samuel N. Dickinson, 1842. (TRADE CATALOGUE, EMBOSSING) Oblong 4to. Printed title in blue and red within an embossed gilt ornamental frame, one printed "Notice" from the publisher dated June, 1842, 49 specimens of embossed cards (many tinted, some printed), all mounted to stiff card stock; and 7 sheets of "Embossed Specimens of Printed Billets" sewn to a stiff printed card. Bound in an album of contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards with red leather label on upper cover stamped in gilt "Dickinson's Embossed Cards," calf shows much deterioration and corrosion, although the sewing is still intact, 28 specimen cards have been removed and are no longer present, some minor soiling and foxing, but generally vey clean and sound internally, custom morocco backed folding box . With a very interesting presentation note from a previous Philadelphia owner, Alfred Darrach, dated 1928, affixed to the front pastedown, identifying the original owner (his grandfather) as Christian Gobrecht (1785-1844), artist, engraver, embosser, inventor, engraver to the U.S. Mint, and, from 1840-1844, the 4th United States Engraver of the Mint, where he was responsible for the creation of several new models and designs, including the famous Seated Liberty design which appeared on a variety of American coins from 1836 through 1890. Gobrecht designed many notable medals, coins and dies during his career, but he also "invented a speaking doll, and later a camera lucida. He also produced engravings for calico printers, and dies for bookbinders. He engraved the brass dies for embossing the Morocco covers of the Boston Token, from 1831 - 1836, as well as the eagle cover of the Philadelphia Token. Among the medals he engraved were the Charles Willson Peale medal, the Franklin Institute medal, etc -" - DAB. A remarkable specimen album in and of itself, all the more so for having belonged to one of America's most important engravers. We cannot say for sure, but it is entirely likely that if Gobrecht himself did not design many of the dies for this embosser, he may have used the album for his own work and possibly removed the cards which are no longer present

        Voyage en Islande et au Groenland, execute pendant les annees 1835 et 1836 sur la corvette La Recherche

      Three magnificent atlases on Iceland. 1842. Paris. Arthus Bertrand. Three volumes in large folio. 1 ff. + 3 ff. + 77 plates; 3 ff. + 74 plates; zoology 1 ff. + 50 plates -35 colored. Contemporary half green chagrin over boards, raised bands to spine, lettered and tooled in gilt, rubbed and scuffed. Some foxing to titles and a few plates, the colored ones are remarkably well done; overall an impressively fresh and crisp copy. First edition. The three atlases of Gaimard?s definitive work on Iceland and the Artic Sea, recording the voyage undertaken aboard the corvette Recherche, sent to the Arctic Sea to recover geographer Jules de Blosseville, lost in 1833 between the waters of Greenland and Iceland during the expedition aboard the Lilloise. These magnificent atlases include 200 large lithographed plates by Mayer, Lassalle and Oudart, made on China paper; they show portraits, the towns, cities, ethnography, effects of leprosy, fauna and flora of the places visited. The zoology volume plates are mostly hand colored. Gaimard (1793 - 1858) was a naval surgeon and experienced explorer; he served on board the Uranie under Freycinet and Dumont D?Urville aboard the Astrolabe (1826 ? 1829). The main goal of the expedition was not reached, as Blosseville was never found, however Gaimard?s explorations throughout Iceland resulted on a most important work on the region, finely illustrated. In order to be complete, the work comprises 8 volumes of text. At the time it was published, the work was one of the most extensive ever made dedicated to Iceland. Chadenat, 5061. Sabin 26330.

        The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories. Volume V

      New York and Philadelphia: J.J. Audubon and J. B. Chevalier, 1842. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. Volume V only. First octavo edition. This volume has 80 hand colored lithographic plates numbered 281 - 350 including several doves, the wild turkey, partridges, grouse, rails, cranes, plovers, and sandpipers. The lithographs are based on Audubon's elephant folio aquatint plates, which were reduced using camera lucida by the printer J.T. Bowen. Some of the resulting images have different backgrounds than the original aquatints. The compositions were also reconfigured so that only one species is shown on each plate. Wood-engraved anatomical drawings are printed within the text. The octavo edition consisting of 7 volumes was printed for subscribers between 1839 and 1844; it is a reprint of the original double elephant folio edition with the addition of 65 plates. The subscription price for this octavo edition was $100 which was quite a lot for the time; however, it was much more affordable and of a more practical size than the double-elephant folio. Many well-to-do American families purchased subscriptions and Audubon's work gained circulation and renown. Audubon was personally involved with the production of this edition. All following editions were printed after his death in 1851. Bound in attractive contemporary full leather with gilt title and volume number to spine. Elaborate gilt tooling to spine, both covers, and dentelles. Minor wear to the hinges and edges with a few pulls to the leather. Full gilt edges with glossy yellow endsheets. The text block is completely split into two sections after the first signature and there are a few smaller splits throughout. Overall the plates are in very good condition although there is light foxing to the margins of many and there is minor soiling on eight. A few of the tissue guards are missing and many of the remaining guards are foxed and/or stained. Pages 141 / 142 and 147 / 148 both have long closed tears which have been repaired; no text is missing. 346 pages. NAT/010913.

Light wear to covers, small chip out of tail of spine; yellow endpapers with some browning and occasional light brown spotting of text pages, else about fine. ________ The approbation at the front of the book indicates that it has been examined by S.A.E. Monsignor the Cardinal Prince de Croy, archbishop of Rouen and changed toexclude all that was contrary to the Catholic faith and so now can be read without danger [to young minds]. This approbation is dated 1842, but we suspect the book is possibly later 1850's in keeping with emergence of other French percaline doree cloth bindings of the period. ________ A VERY HANDSOME AND QUITE RARE FRENCH POLYCHROM BINDING.

        Fragments of the Great Colossi at Memnonium-Thebes

      [London: Day & Son, 1842-1849]. Tinted lithograph by Louis Haghe, coloured by hand, mounted on card in imitation of a watercolour (as issued). Fine condition. 13 5/8 x 19 7/8 inches. 15 3/4 x 23 inches. A fine example from the deluxe issue of David Roberts' monumental works on the Middle East: 'The Holy Land' and 'Egypt & Nubia', considered the greatest lithographically illustrated works issued in the 19th century. Roberts' masterpiece was issued in 41 parts over seven years in three states; tinted, tinted proof and in its finest form (as with the present image), coloured and mounted on card. It is beautifully lithographed by Louis Haghe, to whom Roberts paid tribute in glowing terms, `Haghe has not only surpassed himself, but all that has hitherto been done of a similar nature. He has rendered the views in a style clear, simple and unlaboured, with a masterly vigour and boldness which none but a painter like him could have transferred to stone'. Abbey regarded the work as `one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and...the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph'. David Roberts was born at Stockbridge near Edinburgh, and at the early age of 10 apprenticed to Gavin Buego, a house painter. He continued to work for Buego after his apprenticeship had been completed, carrying out work on imitation stone-work and paneling at Scone Palace and Abercairney Abbey. By 1818 Roberts had become assistant scene painter at the Pantheon theatre in Edinburgh, moving on to work in theatres in Glasgow and finally in late 1821 to Drury Lane theatre in London, where he worked with Clarkson Stanfield. Both artists exhibited at the Society of British Artists, Royal Academy and British Institution, and by 1830 Roberts was firmly established as a topographical artist and was able to give up his theatre work. In these early years he toured the continent and Scotland, and in 1832-33 visited Spain. In 1838 he made plans for his journey to the Near East, inspired by a love of artistic adventure; departing in August 1839 for Alexandria, he spent the remaining part of the year in Cairo, visiting the numerous tombs and sites. In February of the following year he set out to cross the desert for the Holy Land by way of Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem, concluding his tour spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839. The drawings of his tour were submitted to F.G. Moon in 1840 who arranged to bring out a work illustrative of Scripture History, paying Roberts £ 3,000. for the copyright of the sketches, and for his labour in supervising Louis Haghe's lithography. Both the exhibition of his original watercolours and the subsequent published work were an immediate success and confirmed his reputation as an architectural and landscape artist of the highest order.

        HANGING SCROLL OF FUJI

      18. Good. [KAKEMONO] Kawabata GYOKUSHO^, artist. HANGING SCROLL OF MT.FUJI. Appears to have the original mid to late Meiji silk mounting with wooden roller handles. The image size, on silk, isXcm. An abbreviate and somewhat abstract Fuji looms in the distance over a haboku style foreground of gnarled trees on a crag. Gyokusho^ (1842-1913) was an important figure in Tokyo art circles at the turn of the century. He had studied Western painting in his youth under Charles Wirgman, but returned to tradition and became (according to Roberts) "the last great representative of the Shijo^ school." He was talented in more than Shijo^ style, however, as this painting illustrates. Haboku is a most difficult technique, which in Japan goes back to Sesshu^. It is often attempted, but hardly ever successfully. This painting is, in our opinion, successful. With uniform toning of the silk and a faint water spot, else very good. A lovely work.

        On the Structure and Use of the Malpighian Bodies of the Kidney, with Observations on the Circulation through that Gland,

      First Edition, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol. 132, pp.57-80, with general title-page to vol 132, and engraved plate (these with small and neat embossed unlinked library name), disbound, large quarto, very good copy, London, [The Royal Society], 1842. * GARRISON-MORTON # 1231: "Bowman's capsule. Bowman provided convincing evidence that the glomerular capsule is continuous with the renal tubule and gave the first adequate description of the vascular supply of the nephron. He described the afferent and efferent arterioles as they enter and emerge from the capsule which now bears his name. In the same paper he stated his theory of renal secretion. Bowman's work became the basis for all future studies on the physiology of the kidney…" * Sir William Bowman (1816 - 1892) English surgeon, histologist and anatomist; elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1841. At the young age of 25, he identified what then became known as the Bowman's capsule, a key component of the nephron. He presented his findings in 1842 in his paper "On the Structure and Use of the Malpighian Bodies of the Kidney" to the Royal Society and was awarded the Royal Medal. His collaboration with Todd led to the publication of the five-volume "Physiological Anatomy and Physiology of Man" (1843-1856) and "Cyclopaedia of Anatomy and Physiology" (1852), which detailed their research on microscopy and histology, relating minute anatomical observations to physiological functions. Their extensive use of the microscopes revolutionized the study of anatomy and physiology.

        Divertimento dello Scivolare nello stabilimento Bagno Diana di Giuseppe Nervo e C. alla Barriera di Porta Orientale in Milano

      Curiosa ed interessante raffigurazione di pattinatori nello stabilimento Bagno di Diana di Giuseppe Nervo e C. alla barriera di Porta Orientale in Milano. La particolarità della veduta risiede nella bellissima coloritura d?epoca, che ci mostra diversi personaggi intenti a scivolare sul ghiaccio, ma allo stesso tempo nasconde la litografia originale (visibile in contro luce) nata come pubblicità dello stabilimento Bagni di Diana, come luogo di esercizio e scuola di nuoto ( si veda la bibliografia di riferimento). La stessa stampa fu quindi molto probabilmente riutilizzata per pubblicizzare il periodo sia invernale che estivo dello stabilimento. Bibliografia: "Milano nelle vecchie stampe Arrigoni",vol I, tav. 156, n° 323 mm 205x382
