         [POLYNESIE FRANCAISE/MARQUISES] Carte des îles Marquises (archipel de Mendana ou de Nou-Ka-Hiva).

      Paris Dépôt-Général de la Marine 1842 882 x 596 mm. Grande et belle carte figurant l'archipel des îles Marquises, découvertes par l'espagnol Mendana en 1598. Ornée de 10 profils côtiers, elle a été levée et dressée en 1838 par de Tessan, ingénieur hydrographe de la Marine à bord de la Vénus, et publiée dans le "Voyage autour du monde sur la frégate la Vénus, pendant les années 1836-1839". Les deux plus grandes îles de Nuku Hiva et Hiva Oa sont respectivement nommées île Nou-Ka-Iva ou Marchand et île O-Hivaoa ou de la Dominica. Capitaine de vaisseau en 1836, du Petit-Thouars réalisa un tour du monde sur la frégate la Vénus, faisant successivement escale aux îles Canaries, au Brésil, au Chili, au Kamtchatka, au Mexique, en Polynésie, en Australie, et à la Réunion, avant de regagner Brest en juin 1839. De retour en France, il conseilla au gouvernement l'annexion des îles Marquises et fut promu contre-amiral et commandant des forces navales d'Océanie. Il prit possession de l'archipel des Marquises en 1842. Entre 1852 et 1854, il fit de l'île de Nuku-Hiva, la plus grande de l'archipel, un lieu d'accueil pour les prisonniers condamnés à la déportation pour crimes politiques. Très bel et rare exemplaire aux contours finement aquarellés à l'époque, cette carte ayant toujours été publiée en noir et blanc.

He had originally studied medicine and it was in this capacity that in 1838 he was appointed superintending surgeon to the army of the Indus, and accompanied it on its march to Kabul.

        Voyage dans la Russie Meridionale & la Crimee, la Valachie & la Moldavie execute en 1837.Atlas d'histoire naturelle.

      Ernest Bourdin Paris 1842 - Atlas volume only, large folio (43.5 x 30 cm). Half-title, title, 95 lithographed plates, including 84 hand-coloured and 4 folding maps at the rear, all with tissue guards; some light spotting through. Contemporary brown calf, blind tooled decorations to covers, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering to three compartments, gilt edges; rebacked, rubbed. This beautiful volume is one of the rarest works on the natural history of Russia. Anatoliy Demidov (1812-1870) or, as his name was westernised, Anatole de Demidoff, was the son of Paul Grigoryevich Demidov (1738-1821), a distinguished traveller and benefactor of Russian scientific education. This scientific expedition through southern Russia and the Crimea was sponsored by Anatoliy to the tune of half a million francs. He gathered a team of experts under the leadership of Frédéric Le Play, including Raffet as official artist, and the critic Jean Janin to compile the official account, hoping that this publication would put him back in favour with the Tsar, who was unhappy with his decision to settle in France. However, the almost entirely French composition of the expedition team inevitably militated against this outcome. The results of the expedition appeared in two sections. The first part is Demidoff's account of his voyage and mission in Russia and Crimea published in 1840. This atlas volume of fine natural history plates is part of the second section and was published in 1842 together with three volumes of scientific observations by Huot, Leveille, Rousseau and Nordmann (Demidoff's travelling companions). The well-executed plates include among others 32 plates of fish an mammals (4), birds (3), snakes (11), mushrooms (7) and shells (12). Atabey 337 (for 8vo edition of 1840), Brunet II, 583; Carteret III, 197; Nissen 1072; Vicaire III, 167. not in Blackmer. Nissen ZBI 1072 (13 mentions phrenology boards); Brunet II, 583.

        The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia [with] Egypt and Nubia from drawings made on the spot by David Roberts, R.A. With historical descriptions, by The Revd George Croly, L.L.D. Lithographed by Louis Haghe.

      F.G. Moon London -9 1842 - Six volumes large folio.(62 x 45 cm). Lithographed portrait of Roberts by C. Baugniet, 2 engraved maps, 6 lithographed titles with vignettes and 241 plates of which 120 are full-page and 121 half-page, persistent foxing as often, occasionally heavy, modern brown half morocco gilt. In the 1830s tourism in the Holy Land was increasing as the Pasha of Egypt, Muhammad Ali, consolidated his authority and promoted the research into and adoption of European culture. Travel books describing and illustrating the holy sites proliferated, and the scientific investigations of Edward Robinson were published in 1841. David Roberts (1796–1864), a scene-painter for the Pantheon Theatre in Edinburgh, who had established a reputation as a painter of topographical and architectural views, took advantage of the trend to organize a painting expedition to the Holy Land in 1838. Arriving in Cairo in September 1838, he crossed the desert by way of Suez, Mount Sinai, and Petra, to Gaza and Jerusalem accompanied by tribes of Bedouins, friends and guides. He later visited the Dead Sea, the Lake of Tiberias, Lebanon, and the ruins of Baalbac. Returning to England in late 1839, he sought a publisher willing to produce a lavish edition of his views. Rejected by the Finden Brothers and by John Murray, he signed a contract with Francis Graham Moon in 1840. He and Moon shrewdly promoted their project by organizing a private viewing of Roberts' watercolors and drawings for Queen Victoria, the Archbishop of Canterbury and other influential people who immediately subscribed. They mounted public exhibition of some travel sketches in many British cities, and the favourable press notices attracted additional subscriptions, amounting to nearly double what the project required. His work brought tremendous fame, and historians praised the accuracy of his rendering of architectural details and sculptures. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE NATIVITY AND OTHER MUSIC [manuscript title].

      [Various places, including Antarctica, the Northwest Coast, and shipboard. 1841-1842]. - 54pp. including four original color sketches. Oblong quarto. Contemporary black morocco, ornate gilt cover, stamped with the initials of James D. Dana and James C. Palmer, neatly rebacked with most of the original spine preserved. Corners slightly worn. Internally bright and clean. Later presentation inscription on front free endpaper. Overall in fine condition. A superlative album of music, lyrics, and artwork composed by officers of the United States Exploring Expedition (1838-42), originally composed during their landmark voyage. Included are several of the earliest views of Antarctica, as well as a superb watercolor of Oregon. The work is the collaboration of expedition scientist James D. Dana and expedition Acting Surgeon James C. Palmer, shipmates aboard the U.S.S. Peacock and evidently close friends. Dana, a young officer of twenty- five, was the only scientist of the expedition with previous naval experience. His work was shaped by his mentor, Prof. Benjamin Silliman of Yale, who became his father-in-law upon his return. Palmer served as a well respected medical officer. Together the two, with artistic contributions from colleagues, recorded the events of the expedition in this album in remarkable fashion. The musical scores were Dana's forte, while the lyrics fell to Palmer. The album consists of eight selections of music, four of which are adorned by original artwork, delineated as follows: 1) "The Nativity, A Dramatic Canticle." The first and longest piece in the album, likely written and performed in the interest of buoying morale. Stage directions and music were later printed in broadside format, located in only one copy, at the John Hay Library of Brown University. 2) "Veni Parvule." Dedicated to Palmer's wife, Juliet, occasioned by the death of his son during the expedition. An unattributed color portrait of the little boy precedes the music. 3) "The Stars May Aye Their Vigils Keep. Pacific Ocean - 1841." A melancholy tune, lamenting a father's absence upon the death of his newborn child, no doubt related to the previous title. 4) "A Breeze from the Unpopular Opera of The Iceberg!!" Below the ornate manuscript title of this piece appears a detailed watercolor of the Peacock locked in Antarctic ice, labeled in large block letters: "The Icebergs!" A small party of men in the foreground are engaged in what is likely repair of the damaged vessel. The sketch is captioned: "Accurately drawn by Dr. Guillou [a quarrelsome medical officer and Palmer's subordinate], January 24, 1840. Computed area, 32 miles." At the time the Wilkes expedition had travelled closer towards the pole than any previous American venture, making this image among the earliest evidence of the United States' "farthest south." This song was later published in Palmer's ANTARCTIC MARINER'S SONG. (New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1868), pp.75-76. Historian David B. Tyler cites Passed Midshipman Henry Eld's journal description of the Peacock at this moment as a "happy" ship, continuing that the crew could be heard "stamping about the decks the whole day in the most merry mood - dancing and singing most of the time." This merriment was likely the product of Dana and Palmer's song-writing efforts, though the mood changed dramatically in a moment. Tyler writes: "On the morning of the twenty- fourth this merry mood suddenly changed into one verging on panic. It was a clear day with light winds and smooth water as the ship worked her way into a bay searching, as always, for a means of reaching land. Space for maneuvering was limited.the first crash threw those having breakfast out of their seats, making them think the whole bow must be stove in, but actually the most serious damage was at the stern where the starboard wheelrope was carried and the neck of the rudder wrenched so that it became inoperable." The next twenty-four hours saw the condition of the Peacock deteriorate substantially, and it was only through the competent labors of the ship's carpenters that

At the time the Wilkes expedition had travelled closer towards the pole than any previous American venture, making this image among the earliest evidence of the United States' "farthest south." This song was later published in Palmer's ANTARCTIC MARINER'S SONG... (New York: D. Van Nostrand, 1868), pp.75-76. Historian David B. Tyler cites Passed Midshipman Henry Eld's journal description of the Peacock at this moment as a "happy" ship, continuing that the crew could be heard "stamping about the decks the whole day in the most merry mood - dancing and singing most of the time."

Space for maneuvering was limited...the first crash threw those having breakfast out of their seats, making them think the whole bow must be stove in, but actually the most serious damage was at the stern where the starboard wheelrope was carried and the neck of the rudder wrenched so that it became inoperable." The next twenty-four hours saw the condition of the Peacock deteriorate substantially, and it was only through the competent labors of the ship's carpenters that catastrophic disaster was avoided. The resulting "Breeze," also titled "The Old Peacock," was written in Honolulu, to entice shipmates to re-enlist by reminding them in song of the hardships that had brought the crew so close together. A selection referring to the loss of the ship's rudder reads: "Our pluck did not fail, till we lost our tail / And then 't was high time to belay; / But we stuck here clean through, and it came out anew, / And if any man says this yarn is not true, / Let him go there himself, some day." 5) "One Gentle Word...Oregon - 1841." A romantic love song addressed to an unnamed lover, likely Palmer's wife. 6) "My Tent Beside the Oregon." A light ditty, with an introduction based on the Chinook language. Above the title of this piece is a detailed watercolor of the expedition's camp beside the Columbia River drawn by Joseph Drayton, the primary artist of the expedition. The sketch is among the first views of Army exploration in the Pacific Northwest. It shows two tents surrounded by evergreens, with an American flag mounted on a makeshift pole to the right. An officer is shown seated upon a captain's chair outside the nearest tent. A pencil note, evidently added later, reads: "Sketched with camera lucida. The flag is the one referred to by Dr. Kane, vol. I, p.298." In that narrative, Elisha Kane's ARCTIC EXPLORATIONS... (Philadelphia: Childs & Peterson, 1856), the author writes that the flag was later flown high into the Arctic near Cape Constitution. The camp, affectionately dubbed "Peacockville," was built along the Columbia following the wreck of the Peacock at the river's mouth. The ship had struck the bar upon approaching what was thought to be the channel to the Columbia River. Over the next forty-eight hours the ship was wrecked entirely as a rising sea repeatedly smashed the vessel against the shore. Through the heroics of Capt. William Hudson no lives were lost, and enough supplies were salvaged to allow for the construction of the camp a short distance from Astoria where, for a time, Palmer was assigned command of a shore party. The accompanying music and lyrics, later published in the aforementioned ANTARCTIC MARINER'S SONG (pp.44-45), describe the loss: "My tent beside the Oregon o'er looks the sullen wave, Whose turbid waters darkly frown, Above the Peacock's grave; Where surges weave the shifting sands Around her for a pall; And like a spectral sentry, The toppling over. Mourn not her fate that, round the world, Thrice circled with the sea. And thrice to every land unfurled, The banner of the Free: She came to plant her standard fast, Where it had drooped before; Content to lay her bones at last, Beside it on the shore...." Despite their unlucky landing, the time spent at Peacockville was singularly productive. Under Wilkes' immediate direction the entire Columbia River region was systematically surveyed for the first time, thus elevating the Northwest's commercial potential. 7) "Young Shepards' Canzonet. China Sea. 1842." An introduction to "The Nativity," composed at a later date. 8) "Antarctic Mariner's Song. From 'Thulia' unpublished poem. Sooloo Sea - 1842." At the head of this score appears the last watercolor, of a schooner tacking hard amidst a sea of small icebergs and floes. Like "The Iceberg!!" before it, this sketch also ranks among the earliest views of America's southward progress and records the highest southern latitude of any exploring expedition vessel. The short ink caption reads: "Wm. May, USN. (on the spot)." William May served as a Passed Midshipman on the expedition and was later tried for insubordination. The polar ambitions of the Wilkes expedition are summed in a simple phrase repeated throughout the short tune: "Ease the sheet and keep away; Glory guides us South today." At the time of writing, this song was unpublished as stated, though it later appeared as THULIA. A TALE OF THE ANTARCTIC... (New York: Samuel Coleman, 1843), pp.27,42-46, and again as part of ANTARCTIC MARINER'S SONG (pp.65-72). Given its lavish binding, stamped with the authors' initials, and superlatively neat interior, it is most likely the present album was assembled immediately after the expedition's return, though the songs and watercolors were undoubtedly composed en route. The illustrations are probably fine copies of rougher sketches done "on the spot" by the original artists. That Dana, Palmer, Guillou, May, and Drayton would have collaborated on the album is not unlikely; all were simultaneously engaged in the production of the official expedition report and remained in close contact. The penciled captions were added later, as the 1856 Kane reference attests. While the extant narrative journals of the Wilkes expedition are invaluable research sources, the present album offers a unique sentimental view of morale and good spirits under repeated extreme duress. Dana and Palmer have provided in song a description of the mood of the endeavor in a way that would be impossible in a traditional narrative account. Further, the artwork supplied by Guillou, May, and Drayton offers wholly original and early views of two of the expedition's most important stops: the Northwest Coast and Antarctica. The juxtaposition of scenes from these diverse locations is testament to the broad range and scope of the expedition. Palmer himself writes in his introduction to THULIA that his journals and notes were lost with the wreck of the Peacock, making this volume, reconstructed from memory, the best record of his experiences. That this voyage was the defining event in the careers of both Dana and Palmer is certain, and it is evident both took great pride in their participation. Dana's scientific contributions, especially his work with crustaceans, elevated him to the forefront of American scientists. Palmer, for his part, was later offered the direction of naval hospitals in Washington and Brooklyn. Though Wilkes' expedition was riddled with strife and discord, the efforts and character of these two men, appropriately displayed here, offers an early hint to their future successes. In all, a tremendous and singular memoir of the expedition that vaulted the scientific efforts of the United States to new and unparalleled heights. David B. Tyler, THE WILKES EXPEDITION... (Philadelphia: American Philosophical Society, 1968), passim. DAB XIV, p.185; V, pp.55-56.

        Exposé de la méthode d'éducation de Pestalozzi, telle qu'elle a été suivie et pratiquée sous sa direction pendant dix années (de 1806 à 1816) dans l'institut d'Yverdun, en Suisse, par Marc-Antoine Jullien. Seconde édition ornée d'un portrait de Pestalozzi.

      Paris Hachette 1842 In-8 de XL-568 pp., demi-basane prune, dos lisse orné de fers romantiques (reliure de l'époque - étiquette P. L'Hurier). Deuxième édition ornée du portrait de Pestalozzi en frontispice. Suite à sa rencontre avec Pestalozzi (1746-1827), Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1775-1848) publia en 1812 « le plus connu de ses écrits pédagogiques : Esprit de la méthode de Pestalozzi. Il en a donné une seconde édition, sans changements notables, en 1842, plus de quinze ans après la mort de Pestalozzi, sous ce titre Exposé de la méthode d'éducation de Pestalozzi, telle qu'elle a été suivie et pratiquée sous sa direction pendant dix années (1806 à 1816), dans l'institut d'Yverdon, en Suisse . L'édition de 1812 faisait connaître dans son ensemble l'oeuvre de Pestalozzi à une époque où le seul document français relatif au grand éducateur était un livre publié à Lausanne par son compatriote Alexandre Chavannes (Exposé de la méthode élémentaire de Pestalozzi, 1805), à une époque aussi où le régime éducatif de la France se concentrait, pour la jeunesse, dans les lycées quasi-militaires du premier Empire, et, pour les enfants du peuple, dans les écoles de l'institut des Frères des écoles chrétiennes. (...) Aussi le livre de Jullien de Paris n'eut-il, sous l'Empire, aucune action sur l'opinion publique. L'édition de 1842, publiée à une époque où l'on se préoccupait davantage des questions de méthodes, paraît avoir été plus remarquée. » (Buisson). Relié à la suite : Petit code philosophique et moral. Exposé sommaire des douze lois générales qui se reproduisent dans toutes les oeuvres de la nature, et dans toutes les choses humaines et souvenirs de deux congrès scientifiques de France et d'Italie (juillet 1844). Paris, Lacour et comp. (1844). In-8 de 24 pp. Edition originale rare de cette brochure dont la moitié du prix au profit des salles d'asile. « Les quatre pièces de vers qui suivent font partie d'un Recueil de poésies détachées Les muses consolatrices du malheur, que l'auteur aurait l'intention de publier d'ici au 1er janvier 1845 ». Bon exemplaire. Pâles rousseurs. Envoi autographe signé de l'auteur : à Madame Angèle Chassaignac, née Oragon souvenir et hommage respectueux et affectueux de l'auteur, le plus ancien ami de la famille et de son excellente mère.

Le 4 tavv.mancanti sono sostituite da 4 tavole disegnate con tecnica mista (acquarello, china e pastello) allegate al manoscritto (V.sotto)  Ottimo non comune esemplare. Casey Wood p.462. Fine Bird Books p.94. Mullens - Swann  pp.403 - 404. Nissen IVB, 628.  Zimmer II, p.433. Per un malaugurato errore tipografico non è stato inserito nel vol. VII il primo fascicolo di 12 pp., comprendente 3 tavv. di uccelli (tav. 271, 272 e 273 e una tav. di uova). Un ignoto possessore ha allegato al volume in questione 12 pp. manoscritte e 4 disegni eseguiti, come già detto, con tecnica mista. Sia la carta del manoscritto, che le tavole dei disegni sono coeve, ma il tutto sembra però eseguito in tempi più recenti (primi '900 ?). Per un confronto sono state allegate al manoscritto le copie originali delle 4 tavole, su carta ottocentesca. . Come è noto il numero delle tavole delle uova è variabile, soprattutto nelle successive edizioni. La prima edizione ne ha quasi sempre 102. Le tavole di Meyer avrebbero dovuto ornare la famosa opera di W.Yarrell History of British Birds (1837 - 41), ma poi non se ne fece nulla e quindi Meyer decise di pubblicare per suo conto testo e tavole. Nella realizzazione di queste ultime l'Autore (1798 - 1865), di origine olandese, artista di professione e appassionato ornitologo,  coinvolse la moglie e il figlio Charles, quest'ultimo si specializzò soprattutto nella realizazione delle uova, ottenendo risultati veramente notevoli. Le tavole sono molto belle e alcune non hanno nulla da invidiare, se non per il formato, alla prima edizione in folio (Illustrations of British Birds, in 4 voll. edita tra il 1835 e il 1841, con 313 tavole), apparsa come una  raccolta di magnifiche tavole, senza testo, ma con solo una breve didascalia a piè di pagina.

      New York: Edward Walker, 1842. Third edition, and the first to include Harrison's Proclamation and material on Tyler. 8vo, in the publisher's original brown cloth, the covers with blind embossed ornamental frame, the upper cover featuring a vignette of George Washington within a starred wreath, at the top of which is found the American bald eagle and at the bottom a the seal, the spine gilt lettered between blind embossed bands. [4], xi, 753pp. An uncommonly bright and well preserved copy, extremely scarce in such condition. The binding solid with bright gilt and extremely little wear, the spine a bit mellowed but not unpleasantly. The text especially bright and fresh with the only spotting worthy of mention at the prelims, quite rare in such nice condition. SURPRISINGLY RARE COLLECTION OF PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESSES. This "Third Edition" is actually an exact reprint of the second with an additional quire added. The second ended with Harrison's inaugural address. This edition adds the single proclamation by Harrison made during his 32 days in office, and material covering Tyler's first year in office. The second edition, and thus this "third" as well, was greatly improved upon compared to the first. The volume also contains the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the first through thirteenth Amendments.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Mrs. Commodore [Thomas ap Catesby] Jones.

      Written to the wife of the U.S. Naval officer who in 1842 seized and briefly held the port of Monterey under the mistaken impression that war with Mexico had begun, this supportive, warmly written letter assures that lady that "the great mass of the loyal American Citizens view it [her husband's action] as a chivalrous and most glorious act of military vigilance; indeed two of the most intelligent and influential members of Congress a few days since declared, that but for political considerations involving at the moment National Courtesy, they would move the presentation of a Splendid Sword to the Gallant Commodore in Commendation of his Conduct . . ." In addition, Steuart notes that he is quite confident that Commodore Jones will be well provided for financially. Origin & Provenance: The writer was neither Lieutenant Colonel William Steuart, who died in 1839, nor William Steuart, chief statistician of the Bureau of the Census, who was born in 1861; rather, this was beyond a doubt => the William M. Steuart for whom Steuart Street in San Francisco was named -- the acting chairman of the California State Constitutional Convention in 1849 and a one-time candidate for governor of the state. Steuert first went to California as a secretary to Commodore Jones and maintained strong ties to the family.

        Portraits of the Game and Wild Animals of Southern Africa, delineated in their native haunts, during a hunting expedition from the Cape Colony as far as the Tropic of Capricorn, in 1836 and 1837, with sketches of the field sports. By Captain W. Cornwallis Harris. drawn on stone by Frank Howard

      printed by Green & Martin and H.W.Martin, published for the Proprietor by W.Pickering, and to be had of P.& D.Colnaghi and T.Cadell, London 1842 - (21 1/8 x 14 1/4 inches). Lithographic additional title with hand-coloured vignette, 30 hand-coloured lithographic plates by Frank Howard after Harris, 30 uncoloured lithographic vignette illustrations. Minor foxing to the text. Contemporary red half morocco over cloth boards, bound by Hammond, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, black morocco-lettering-piece in the second, the others with an animal decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A fine copy of the large paper issue of "one of the most important and valuable of the large folio works on South African fauna" (Mendelssohn). The work was issued in five parts between 1840 and 1842, either on Colombier paper with tailpieces [i.e. large paper, as here] or on smaller Imperial paper without tailpieces. It was re-issued in 1844 by Richardson and again in 1849 by Bohn. The present copy is in the work's most desirable form, with both titles in their first states, dated 1840. Captain Harris, an officer in the East India Company's Bombay Engineers, was invalided to the Cape for two years, from 1835-1837. In 1836, after conferring with the naturalist Dr. Andrew Smith, he and Richard Williamson set out from Algoa Bay, by way of Somerset and the Orange River and travelled in a north-easterly direction until they reached the kraals of the famous Matabele chief Moselikatze. He proved friendly and allowed them to return via a previously closed route. The first published account of the journey appeared in Bombay in 1838 ( Narrative of an Expedition in Southern Africa) , octavo, with a map and 4 plates); encouraged by the favourable reception, Harris went on to publish the present work which was based around his sketches of the game and wild animals he had encountered in his travels. In 1841 he was sent to open up trade relations with the ancient Christian kingdom of Shoa (Shwa, now the southern-most part of Ethiopia). His success was such that he received a knighthood in 1844, in the same year he published his account of this second journey. He returned to India in 1846 where he died in October 1848 (DNB) . Abbey Travel I, 335; Mendelssohn I, p.688; Nissen ZBI 1843; Schwerdt I, p.231; Tooley 247. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1842. first edition. The Private and Public Lives of the AnimalsGrandville's Witty and Telling Commentary on Contemporary Politics and PersonalitiesGRANDVILLE, J.J. Scènes de la vie Privée et Publiques des Animaux. Études de moeurs contemporaines publiés sous la direction de M. P.-J. Stahl? Paris: J. Hetzel, et Paulin, 1842. First edition. Two large octavo volumes (10 5/16 x 6 15/16 inches; 262 x 176 mm.). [viii], 386, [6, Table de Matières]; [2], 390, [6, Table de Matières] pp. Two hundred wood engraved plates (including the two additional titles) and numerous head & tailpieces, vignettes, initials, etc., by Brévière and others after designs by Grandville.Publisher's half dark green morocco over green cloth boards ruled in gilt. Smooth spines decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, marbled end-papers, top edge gilt. Small split in lower hinge of volume one, some very occasional light foxing, otherwise a fine set."The moving force behind this book was its publisher P.-J. Hetzel, who himself contributed many chapters under the pseudonym of P.-J. Stahl? Through Grandville?s animals, Hetzel and his colleagues offered a witty and telling commentary on contemporary politics and personalities. Bouchot described the result as the best satire on French manners during the middle of the century, recalling "the anger to which it gave rise, the outbursts of laughter it provoked and the lawsuits of which it ran the risk." These allusions pass largely unnoticed today, but Grandville?s animals remain as amusing as ever, thanks to the wit and verve of his compositions. The types and situations he depicts are indeed "of every period and every country? The final plate shows the artist at the zoo of the Jardin des Plantes. He is sketching the visiting creatures who in turn are peering at cages containing Hetzel, Balzac, Jules Janin, and other authors of the Scènes de la vie privée et publique des animaux. It should be noted that the engravings for this book are by Brévière, the one craftsman whose renderings of his work Grandville refused to criticize." (Ray. p. 273). Ray, The Art Of The French Illustrated Book 1700 to 1914, 194 (citing incorrect number of plates). Carteret III 553.
