        Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg; being a collection of Original Welsh Airs,

      Llandovery. Soho Square. London.: William Rees. D'Almaine and Mackinlay In contemporary embossed cloth, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, some repairs, gilt title and harp to upper board. New brown cloth spine, printed titles to paper label. Internally, yellow endpapers, stamped Llandaff address to fep, stamped name (EL Williams - Seren Cymru) to to and dedication leaf, [5], 6-86 pp, printed by W Rees, Llandovery, not dated but 1844 per BL. Includes a 2 page subscribers list. Williams, (Maria) Jane, singer and compiler of traditional Welsh music competed at Abergavenny, but there are conflicting accounts of her victories. She probably won in 1838 for an arrangement of a Welsh air for four voices, and a year earlier for the best collection of unpublished Welsh music. This was to be published as Ancient Airs of Gwent and Morgannwg (1844), the collection of folk-songs for which she is best remembered. She was considered an authority by her contemporaries and was consulted by them on matters pertaining to folk-songs, but her authority has been challenged by modern scholars. See ODNB.

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL

      1844. In Prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. Philadelphia: Carey & Hart, 1844. Original blind-stamped rose-brown cloth with gilt-decorated spine. Early American edition of Dickens's classic tale about Ebenezer Scrooge. Carey & Hart issued this as a reproduction of Dickens's personally-supervised London edition: the gilt spine decoration is the same, the title page is in red and blue, and the Leech illustrations are faithfully reproduced (four in color, as in the London edition).~Though this is frequently referred to as the first American edition, Harper's 1844 edition undoubtedly preceded it onto the streets (something that will soon be confirmed in Walter Smith's bibliography): the Harper edition was produced quickly and cheaply, with no illustrations and bound just in wrappers -- in other words, they were going for speed, not quality.~In this copy, the plate "Mr. Fezziwig's Ball" serves as frontispiece; in some copies, "Marley's Ghost" does -- no priority. It is in rose-brown cloth; Podeschi cites copies in blue or in purple, but not in this color.~This is a very good-plus copy (spine slightly tanned as always with this color cloth, very light wear at the spine ends, early penned name on the front flyleaf). The binding is quite clean, the only noteworthy foxing is on the (original) endpapers, and the color plates remain remarkably bright. The first English edition consisted of 6,000 copies; though it is unknown how many copies of Carey & Hart's American edition were printed, we easily see 20 English copies for every Carey & Hart copy -- which if true would indicate an American edition of only 500 copies. Podeschi (Yale) A80 (six copies, various colors of cloth and placement of frontispiece; Yale has 24 first issue English copies); Carr (UTexas) B362; Wilkins p. 38.

      Moon, F.G., London 1844 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

Title page and a few other leaves with just a hint of marginal foxing, three or four leaves with very small marginal tear in fore edge (two expertly repaired), original wrappers slightly soiled, but A VERY FINE COPY, internally very bright and clean, with quite generous margins, and with THE STUNNING BINDING IN SUPERB CONDITION. There could hardly be a more appropriate binding for this work than Noulhac's elegant so-called "cathedral" design. As would be expected from a binder of his reputation, the design is beautiful, and the work has been performed with the greatest of skill. "Notre Dame de Paris," usually known in English as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," is the quintessential Romantic novel, and its publication in 1831 made young Victor Hugo the leading Romanticist of 19th century France. As a child, Hugo (1802-85) was shaken by the experience of the arrest of a political refugee whom his mother had hidden for months in their garden, and partly as a result, he was ever after a supporter of the underdog. His deep sympathy for the oppressed is plainly seen in "Notre Dame," which brings together the twice-kidnapped gypsy dancer Esmeralda and the grotesque hunchback cathedral bell-ringer Quasimodo, whom she, for a moment, befriends. Although verisimilitude precludes an amorous relationship between two such characters, their kindness and heroism are nevertheless moving and dramatic, and the discovery of their skeletons in the same place at the end of the novel is compelling. But there is much more to Hugo's enduringly popular first novel than the relationship between gypsy and hunchback; in fact, for the author, the title he has chosen suggests an entirely different focus, as the famous cathedral serves throughout the book as the center of action and context or characterization. This work, a perfect vehicle for displaying the Romantic style, has been illustrated here by a number of leading French artists. Ray calls it a "noble volume, harmoniously planned, well printed on fine paper with ample margins, and splendidly adorned." Ray singles out the 14 plates by de Lemud for special praise, writing that they are "profoundly studied; they are drawn, indeed, for posterity," and also extols the headpieces and tailpieces, which he says are "as rewarding as the plates.".

      Gênes, Imprimerie des Frères Ponthenier, 1844. Royal-8vo (235 x 155mm). Atlas only with 47 handcoloured engraved plates. Loose. The complete atlas without the 2 text volumes of the rarest works on coleoptera. The detailed and finely handcoloured plates (all after drawings by the author) depict the treated beetles together with many exact anatomical magnifications of their mouthparts, legs etc. It has been said that Spinola himself burned all but a dozen copies of his book apparently because the book was so expensive that he could not sell it. "L'édition sauf une dizaine d'exemplaires, a été detruite par l'auteur à qui on reprochait de vendre son livre trop cher" (Brunet VI, 335)./Maxililian Spinola (1780-1857) made important contributions to entomology describing many taxa. Spinola came from a wealthy noble family in Genoa and much of his wealth derived from land held in Spain and South America from where he received many insects. His insect collection is preserved in the 'Museo Regionnale di Scienze Naturali' in Turin and in the 'Museo storia naturale' in Pisa. //Horn & Schenkling 20948; Nissen ZBI, 3941.

        Ascent of the Lower Range of Sinai.

      Moon, F.G., London 1844 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.
