Its proximity to the axes of international trade gives it some advantage over the Panama route; the Isthmus of Panama, however, is significantly narrower, making for a shorter traversal, even if the canal is farther from trade routes" (Wikipedia); Sabin 26546..

        Plate LXXIII Rocky Mountain Sheep The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

      Philadelphia: Audubon, J.J., 1844. Imperial Folio Edition Fine with bright original hand-coloring. Original and rare hand-colored lithograph (21 x 27 inches, 533.4 x 686.8 mm) by JT Bowen after painting by John James Audubon, FRS, FLS for the Imperial Folio Edition of the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. The Rocky Mountain Sheep is in Fine condition with bright and rich original hand-coloring, The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (Philadelphia c.1845-48) represents the culmination of a lifelong dream held by America's most prominent naturalist and visionary, John James Audubon (1785-1851). Following the completion of his magnum opus, the Double Elephant Folio Edition of Birds of America, c. 1824-38, Audubon was at liberty to pursue a project close to his heart, large scale portraits of all of North America's native animals. Audubon's effort to render America four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals in their natural settings pioneered the way for an entire culture of naturalist artists and engravers. Once the animals were placed within their native habitat, inspired by Audubon's classical composition and watchful eye, most subsequent naturalist painters rarely presented animals and birds void of a full botanical perch, landscaped setting, or woodland background. Very few, if any naturalist artists returned to the solo vignette so commonly found in most natural history works from the previous three centuries. Audubon's dream to complete this monumental work was made manifest through the artistic and clerical assistance of his two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford, as well as the Reverend John Bachman, who contributed the excellent text for the production. Today, the tale of Audubon's westward journey to hunt and gather skins and specimens and thus inspiration to complete the 155 paintings for the Quadrupeds is common enough. The story of how he sold his work through subscription format and created a smaller (Royal Octavo Edition) as a more democratic and affordable option to the production has been told religiously, and in great detail, by anyone reviewing these masterpieces once again. Yet through these critiques, America's premier ornithologist, painter and naturalist has gained his rightful place among the masters of Animal Portraiture, painters like Edwin Landseer and George Stubbs. Regardless of any criticism his artistic practices and personal affairs may have encountered, Audubon's legacy has enriched our understanding and appreciation of America's native species, both birds and animals. In addition, through Audubon's paintings we are offered the very first glimpses of the American landscape west of the Mississippi, as his work predates that of the Hudson River Artists.

        Simcoe's Military Journal. A History of the Operations of a Partisan Corps, Called The Queen's Rangers...During the War of the American Revolution

      New York: Bartlett & Welford, 1844. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. 22.5cm. Rebound in quarter speckled dark blue calf, raised black ruled bands, gilt decorations in the panels, crimson crushed morocco label, blue marbled boards. Contemporary internal library stamps (no bleed through) otherwise a fine copy., illustrated with 10 folding maps.  A very nice copy of the first American edition. The first published edition of one of the legendary Revolutionary War books. In 1775, Simcoe arrived in America as a young British Army officer. In the fall of 1777 he was promoted to the rank of major and given command of the Queen's Rangers, an American Tory cavalry regiment. This book describes the actions in which the regiment was involved, first around Philadelphia in 1777 and 1778, until the withdrawal of Howe to New York; then around New York in Long Island, Westchester County and New Jersey until the end of 1780. On Dec. 11, 1780, the regiment embarked for Virginia as part of Benedict Arnold's campaign there, serving in all of the dramatic actions in Virginia throughout 1781, and finally ending up trapped at Yorktown with Cornwallis. Simcoe then returned to England where he wrote this book, privately printing it in an elaborate fashion, with ten folding maps illustrating different actions. That edition remains among the rarest examples of Revolutionary Americana (the last two copies sold brought more than $20,000). This scarce first published edition includes a memoir of Simcoe. Simcoe later went on to a distinguished parliamentary and military career, and is best known as the first governor of Upper Canada Lande 749. TPL 562

The uniform black-letter printing was done by Charles Whittingham the younger, of the Chiswick Press, "distinguished for . . . tasteful design and excellent presswork" (Oxford DNB online).The collaboration between Whittingham and Pickering, one of the most important publishers of the 19th century, produced a number of impressive volumes; the present effort is notable for its outstanding typography and its wood-engraved initials and ornaments done by Mary Byfield.

        Die Venetianer Alpen: ein Beitrag zur kenntnis der Hochgebirge.

      Verlag von Jent & Gassman bei P. Rohrmann, Solothurn Wien. 1844 60 p., [18] c. di tav., 30 x 35 cm, cart. Questa rara opera è frutto di uno dei predecessori del più celebrato Dolomieu; è una delle prime descrizioni geografiche e geologiche della regione compresa tra il Lago di Garda e il Bellunese. E? corredata dal primo abbozzo di carta geologica della regione e da numerosi profili e spaccati geologici, che rappresentano la prima iconografia di parte delle Dolomiti, le quali ancora attendevano di essere battezzate con questo nome. Nella tabella che riporta le altezze trigonometriche, estratte dalla carta austriaca del 1833, o barometriche relative a località accessibili, viene indicata l?altezza del Pelmo come se fosse stata determinata barometricamente. \rWilhelm Fuchs, un pioniere quasi dimenticato della geologia delle Dolomiti, ha dato un colpo all?apertura in campo accademico alle Dolomiti, grazie alla sua pubblicazione, che sono poi state chiamate sia le ?Montagne Azzurre? sia le ?Alpi veneziane?. Le sue mappe e profili sono le prime immagini conosciute delle Dolomiti. Le sue misurazioni trigonometriche sono le prime delle Dolomiti.\rFuchs è così il primo che ha fatto la salita ?Pelmo?: fu il primo scalatore delle Dolomiti. Il nostro atlante è diviso nelle seguenti sezioni: I. Foto geognostiche di tutto il gruppo delle Alpi di Belluno; II. Le condizioni di conservazione delle Alpi, lungo le colline di Conegliano in tutta la catena fino al Lago di Garda; III. Raccolta critica delle osservazioni; IV. Carattere della montagna. Vegetazione; V. Altezza regolamenti. Gruppo di aumento e posteriore: Note sui fogli della carta geologica. A seguire le 18 tavole in parte colorate.

      Smith Elder and Co London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1844. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 200 x 124 mm (7 7/8 x 4 7/8").Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. VERY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY CADET BLUE THREE-QUARTER MOROCCO over pale blue watered silk, raised bands, spines handsomely gilt in compartments with floral sprig centerpiece and volute cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With 10 engraved portraits.Top inch of silk on one board faded by sun, one plate with closed one-inch fore-edge tear (not affecting image), other minor internal imperfections, but A VERY PRETTY SET, especially fresh and clean inside and out, and with bindings that are remarkably bright. Poet Richard Hengist Horne (1802-84) patterned this collection of critical essays about contemporary writers after the acclaimed collection of essays "Spirit of the Age; or Contemporary Portraits," published by his idol William Hazlitt in 1825. Among the writers included in the work were Dickens, the Brownings (Mrs. Browning is given credit for contributing at least one of the chapters), Mrs. Shelley, Wordsworth, Mrs. Trollope, Tennyson, and Hunt (there are 25 essays in all in the work, some of them dealing with more than one figure). Few were pleased by what they read; according to DNB, the book "elicited a deluge of abuse from its victims, and Horne, naïvely surprised, decamped hastily on a tour of Germany." Dickens, however, was either more forgiving or more flattered, and subsequently employed Horne as a reporter for the "Daily News," for which he covered the Irish famine in 1846, and later as a sub-editor of "Household Words." In any case, the work provides a useful survey of the period's literary scene, and our copy is in uncommonly handsome bindings.

        Plate XII Swift Fox. The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

      Philadelphia: Audubon, J.J., 1844. Imperial Folio Edition Fine with bright original hand-coloring. A Fine original hand-colored lithographed plate, archivally matted and accompanied by original text. First Royal Octavo Edition. (10.5 x 7 inches). Drawn from nature by John Woodhouse Audubon, drawn on stone by William E. Hitchcock and lithographed, printed and colored by JT Bowen, Philadelphia. The Quadrupeds of North America, which encompassed a total of 155 native American four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals individually documented and portrayed in their landscape and natural settings, was a collaborative effort between premier Nineteenth Century American naturalist painters: John James, his sons John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford Audubon and the naturalist Reverend John Bachman. To document and portray what Audubon considered a dwindling resource; the native mammals set among the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited America landscape, the team traveled westward from Audubon's home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark, from the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories, now Alaska, southward to Mexico. Arduous and monumental, the journey influenced the pathos of the compositions, however, the true legacy of the work rests on John James Audubon's prolific vision and mastery of his subject and medium. Heretofore unseen, The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife classic: an essential and timeless contribution to both American Culture and the Art of American Wildlife Painting. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: "We have at last have a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens.. the Bible of Nature!" (John James Audubon in the West. New York: Henry H. Abrams, 2000)

        American Seaman's Friend Society Membership Certificate.

      1 sheet. 15 3/4 x 17 inches. Matted. Hand-colored steel engraving. This copy is dated in manuscript January 1859, but work on the certificate began in 1842 and the original engraving for the certificate was created between 1844 but prior to 1849. The scene was designed by William Wade, an artist, engraver, and draftsman active in New York between 1844 and 1852 who was also the artist and engraver of a Panorama of the Hudson River from New York to Albany from which this scene may have been taken. The engraver was Thomas Pollock, who settled in New York in 1840. The image is a harbor scene of lower Manhattan at what would become the site of the Manhattan Bridge, which shows disembarking sailors in the foreground with a view of Governor's Island from Manhattan on the right and the first Sailor?s Home on the East River on the left; in the middle is a ship with the word 'Temperance' on the main mast flag. The American Seaman's Friend Society was officially founded in 1828, with trustees from such port cities as Boston, Philadelphia, Charleston, and Savannah. The first general agent was Reverend Joshua Leavitt, a temperance lecturer for the American Temperance Society and a revivalist who was an anti-slavery leader and a charter member of the Liberty Party of 1840. The Sailor's Home, with accommodations for about 300 boarders, was established by the American Seaman's Friend Society at No. 190 Cherry street, in May 1842. By 1853 it had housed 36, 596. boarders. Below the image are additions in manuscript: Richard Fenney of the Congregational Society of Georgetown is made a life member for raising $70. The certificate is signed by four officers: William A. Booth, President; Rev. Israel P. Warren, Rev. Harmon Loomis, and Samuel Brown. A very good copy, small repaired marginal tear, marginal stain and toning.

      London. 1844-1848.. viii,139pp. printed in double columns, plus sixty lithographic plates. [with:] Miers, Edward J.: THE ZOOLOGY OF THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. EREBUS & TERROR...CRUSTACEA. London. 1874. [2],5,[1]pp. plus four lithographic plates. Quarto. Ichthyology volume unbound as issued, Crustacea volume stitched, both laid into original printed wrappers (the wrappers of Crustacea are those of an ornithology part). Spine of Ichthyology volume perished, light edge wear. Internally near fine. Housed together in a half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. The 1839-42 expedition of the Erebus and Terror to the Antarctic under James Clark Ross was one of the first major Antarctic expeditions, and according to Hill, one of the most important of all Pacific voyages. These two publications form a part of the scientific and natural history component of the voyage, among the most important and desirable for any Antarctic collection. They bear a relation to Ross' own narrative similar to that of the zoology volume of Beechey's voyage to Beechey's narrative, also edited by the experienced high latitude zoologist, Sir John Richardson. John Clark Ross, commander of this expedition, was the nephew of Rear Admiral Sir John Ross, and one of the most experienced high latitude explorers produced by England. Beginning with Parry in 1819, he participated in most of the major British high Arctic expeditions over the next two decades. He was thus the natural choice to lead, and in April 1839 he was appointed commander of an expedition fitted out for magnetic and geographical discovery in the Antarctic, aboard the Erebus and Terror, which sailed from England in September 1839. The party crossed the Antarctic Circle on Jan. 1, 1841, and discovered a long range of high land which Ross named Victoria, a volcano which he named Mount Erebus, and a range of ice cliffs which to all appearances permanently barred the way to any closer approach to the pole. The expedition was also able to determine the South Magnetic Pole, and for this discovery Ross was awarded the gold medal of the Geographical Societies of London and Paris in 1842. The expedition penetrated as far south as 78° South, seven degrees farther than Cook and four degrees farther than Wendell, and provided the first detailed look at the coast of the Antarctic continent. They went on to visit Tasmania, New Zealand, and the Cape of Good Hope before returning to England in 1842. The present volumes represent a portion of the scientific findings gleaned from this expedition dealing with marine life. They include all of the findings dealing with ichthyology and crustacea, making them complete in and of themselves. The text of the Ichthyology volume is by John Richardson and describes fish specimens gathered from Australia, New Zealand, Cape Horn, the Falklands, and "wherever an opportunity offered of drawing the seine or trawl, or dropping a hook." Richardson was Great Britain's leading authority on fishes and "this report is distinguished as one of the most important zoological studies from the classical era of Antarctic exploration" (Rosove). The sixty handsome black and white plates illustrate all manner of fish in beautiful detail, and include several rare specimens. The report on crustacea is contained in the concluding supplement to the section on birds. The plates were produced a number of years before the text, and therefore the nomenclatures are not in agreement. Because the entire work was produced over a thirty-year period by a variety of hands, complete sets are almost impossible to find. According to Sabin, the two complete volumes or reports, of which these are a part, were originally "published in twenty-four parts at ten shillings each, the first eighteen of which appeared in 1844-48, and the last six in 1874-75...Complete sets are rare, especially with all the plates colored." In fact, any parts of the natural history findings of the Ross Antarctic expedition are quite rare on the market. ANKER 185. ROSOVE ANTARCTIC 270-8, 270-9. HOCKEN, p.117. SPENCE, ANTARCTIC 971.
