        Great American White Egret

      Birds of North America, from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories 1844 - Sheet Dimensions: 6 x 8.75 in. Frame Dimensions: 14.5 x 17.25 in. Hand-colored lithograph. A tireless entrepreneur, John James Audubon devoted himself to an unprecedented project, becoming the first to attempt the seemingly insurmountable task of documenting all the bird life of North America. This task grew out of a genuine and passionate interest in his subjects, and Audubon determined not only to complete a project that no one else had undertaken, but to approach it in an entirely innovative manner. His style and his persona were much like the notion of America itself: ambitious, animated, larger than life. The artist’s tireless efforts and remarkable talent culminated in the publication in London of his 435-plate Birds of America (1827-1838), undoubtedly the greatest work on birds ever produced. The celebration of this quintessentially American work, and the enterprising, talented artist who created it, has grown steadily since the time of its publication.

        Faune méridionale ou description de tous les animaux vertébrés vivans et fossiles, sauvages ou domestiques qui se rencontrent toute l'année ou qui ne sont que de passage dans les plus grande partie du Midi de la France; suivie d'une méthode de taxidermie ou l'art d'empailler les oiseaux.

      - Nimes, chez l'auteur, and Montpellier, M. Lebrun, 1844. Two volumes of text and one atlas in three. 8vo (text volumes 21.5 x 13.0 cm; atlas 21.6 x 15.2 cm). 714 pp. [xxviii, 320, (2); ix, 354 (1)], 74 lithographed plates (one double-sized and double present). Contemporary uniform pebbled calf over pebbled boards. Spines with gilt lines and tite. Marbled endpapers.l One of the earliest general works on the zoology of this part of France. The text volumes are not uncommon, but the plate volume, with illustrations by the author, is extremely rare. The plates mostly depict birds (53 plates). Six plates are herpetological, including lizards, turtles, snakes, frogs, toads, and salamanders. Nissen only quotes 70 plates, as follows: 1-74 without 12, 28, 70, and 73. This copy confirms the absence of 12, 28, and 70, but it does include 14bis, 35bis, 36bis, and 73 (twice, both double-sized and dealing with bird taxidermy). One is numbered plate 70 in pencil and this seems to be an error for 74 or vice versa. In any event, the total is 73 plates, disregarding the double plate. ADDED is a very rare, perhaps unrecorded printed pamphlet with the drop-head title: "Catalogue de la collection zoologique de Jean Crespon, de Nimes a vendre" (12 pp), in original blind wrappers with script title. This catalogue includes extensive lists of animals covered in the book, and much more. Again, most are stuffed birds, and eggs, but there is also an interesting section on reptiles, as well as on fish, insects, shells, jewels, weapons, etc., etc. Jules Crespon (1797-1857) was a tinker, barber, soldier, and professional taxidermist; this list probably contains his inventory as well as his scarce personal belongings and may therefore date from 1857. According to Wikipedia, "En 1844, il fait paraître un ouvrage encore plus ambitieux intitulé La Faune méridionale en deux volumes. Crespon y décrit 27 nouvelles espèces. Les vingt dernières années de la vie de Crespon sont difficiles: malade, il finit par ne plus pouvoir s’occuper de ses collections dont nombre de spécimens disparaissent. Elles sont léguées au Muséum de Nîmes créé en 1895". Old owner's stamp (a taxidermist) on the title page and half-title, some marginal spotting to plates. Two plates with an old, small repair, some 12 plates cut short at the bottom with slight loss of the captions, otherwise a good set. Nissen ZBI, 989. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Schiller's Works in Ten Volumes Rendered in Old German.

      J.G. Cotta, Stuttgart und Tubigen 1844 - Oktav, [20.5cm/8inches], Vollchromprägung Rhein grünen Tuch Staub sans Jacken, Vol. paginiert, von denen jeder mit einem gravierten,-und Gewebe-geschützten, frontis sowie Textplatten Illustrierte. Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, (1759 - 1805), war ein deutscher Dichter, Philosoph, Historiker und Dramatiker. Während der letzten 17 Jahre seines Lebens schlug Schiller eine produktive und ziemlich kompliziert, Freundschaft mit Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Sie diskutierten häufig Fragen der Ästhetik, und Schiller Goethe angeregt, um Werke, die er als Skizzen links beenden. Die Freundschaft führte zu dem, was heute als Weimarer Klassik bezeichnet. Die beiden arbeiteten auch zusammen auf Xenien, eine Sammlung von kurzen satirischen Gedichte, in denen sowohl Schiller und Goethe Herausforderung Gegner, um ihre philosophische Vision. Er ist vielleicht am besten für Kanadier und Amis bekannt als der Schöpfer des 1804 spielen Wilhelm Tell, die Gioachino Rossinis Ouvertüre zu 1829 eine Oper mit dem gleichen Namen inspiriert und die den Titelsong der TV-Serie Lone Ranger in den 1950er Jahren wurde. Im Jahr 1839, fünf Jahre vor der Veröffentlichung dieser Bände in Stuttgart, die Stadt Stuttgart errichtet ein Statut in Schillers Speicher auf einem Platz umbenannt Schillerplatz. Im September 2008 wurde Friedrich Schiller durch das Publikum von dem deutsch-französischen Fernsehsender Arte als die zweitwichtigste in Europa nach Dramatiker William Shakespeare gewählt. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, um Angaben und / oder zusätzliche Schnappschüsse erkundigen.Octavo, [20.5cm/8inches], full chrome-embossed Rhine green cloth sans dust jackets, paginated by volume, each of which is Illustrated with an engraved, -and tissue-protected-, frontis as well as textual plates. Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, (1759 – 1805), was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright. During the last seventeen years of his life Schiller struck up a productive, and quite complicated, friendship with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. They frequently discussed issues concerning aesthetics, and Schiller encouraged Goethe to finish works he left as sketches. This friendship led to what is now referred to as Weimar Classicism. The two also worked together on Xenien, a collection of short satirical poems in which both Schiller and Goethe challenge opponents to their philosophical vision. He is perhaps best known to Canadians and Yanks as the creator of the 1804 play William Tell, which inspired Gioachino Rossini’s 1829 overture to an opera of the same name, and which became the theme song of the Lone Ranger television series in the 1950s. In 1839, five years prior to the publication of these volumes in Stuttgart, The city of Stuttgart erected a statute in Schiller’s memory on a square renamed Schillerplatz. In September 2008, Friedrich Schiller was voted by the audience of the Franco-German television channel Arte as the second most important playwright in Europe after William Shakespeare.

        A detailed estimate and specification for an 'elegant new chariot' to be supplied to Timothy Hutton, of Clifton Castle, Yorkshire, together with related correspondence, dated variously in

      1844 and 1845. Horne, Thompson and Holland, coach builders and harness makers, and successors to the coach makers Edward and James Houlditch, had premises at 93 Long Acre (London) having just moved from 254 Oxford Street (according to the Post Office London Directory for 1843). Timothy Hutton (b. 1779) had purchased the Cliftonestate in 1802, demolished the original Clifton Castle and commissioned John Foss to build the present Grecian style house. In 1844/45 Hutton was High Sheriff of Yorkshire. He died without heirs in 1863. Clifton Castle is now the seat of the Marquess of Downshire. The principal document in this small archive is a single folded sheet (folio size: 40 x 25.5 cms), with clean tears at folds (no loss), comprising a long and detailed quotation for the supply of a new coach at a total estimated cost of a massive 304 guineas (5% discount for cash). It begins thus: 'April 17 1844. Estimate of an elegant new chariot of the very best materials & workmanship with sword case & inside seat-box, the inside lined with fine cloth & improved watered silk or morocco squabs stuffed with the best curled hair & trimmed with lace double folding steps recessed in the doors trimmed with cloth & morocco the roof covered with leather & mounted with brass or silver plated mouldings, fashionable door handles, a splash frame covered with double patent leather, & a pair of patent double bodied lamps. .....'. There follow an extensive list of further details of fixtures and fittings. The four accompanying letters are: 1. Horne, Thompson & Holland, 23 July 1844, informing Hutton that his new chariot would be sent up to Yorkshire 'per 8 o'clock morning train from Euston Square'. 2. Retained copy of a letter from Hutton dated July 30, 1844, enclosing £300 draft but also noting that 'the carriage appears large and heavy' but hoping that 'when a little more used, will not prove too much so for a pair of horses'. Hutton also points out a defect to the steps which has 'injured the spokes of the wheel'. 3. Horne & Co.'s response of 31 July 1844 apologising for the wheel problem ('which can be remeaded [sic] with a very little attention') and thanking Hutton for the £300. 4. Retained copy of another letter from Hutton dated April 7, 1845, suggesting in strong terms that a further bill from Horne's was unacceptable.

        Spécies générales et iconographie des coquilles vivantes comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna (appartenant maintenant A. M. B. Delessert) et les découvertes récentes des voyageurs. Famille des enroulées. Genre Cone.

      Paris, Rousseau, and J. B. Baillière, 1844-1850. One part in two (text and atlas). 4to (32.0 x 25.0 cm). Title page and half title, 379 pp.; 111 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition better suits the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of a scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ‘Spécies'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This set covers the complete Conidae (cone shells), divided over two volumes - text and atlas - as it is, by far, the largest section of Kiener's magnum opus. Many species are described here for the first time. Kiener listed the genus Conus under the "famille des enroulés", together with other groups with an elongate aperture and short spire. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Vaillant, Roch, and others, including some by Kiener himself, are among the most beautiful illustrations of cone shells ever published. Publication started in 1844 and was completed in 1850 (Faber, 2011). Some rubbing to the boards, several sections in text spotted, sometimes more heavily in the margins; a few plates age-toned, usually mildly, or with a few spots, most plates, however, near-clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65; Nissen ZBI, 2183.

        RESEARCHES ON LIGHT: AN EXAMINATION OF ALL THE PHENOMENA CONNECTED WITH THE CHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR CHANGES PRODUCED BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE SOLAR RAYS; EMBRACING ALL THE KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES, AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE ART

      London: Printed for Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1844. First edition. 8vo., vii, 303 pp., 32 pp. adverts, hand-colored engraved folding frontispiece, text diagrams. Recased in the decoratively blind-stamped publisher's original cloth. The lower edge of the binding is rubbed, with moderate wear at the tips. A very good copy. "Robert Hunt (1807 - 1887) was a librarian keeper of mining records the the Museum of Practical Geology and professor of mechanical engineering at the Royal School of Mines, at London. He carried on numerous photographic and photomechanical experiments and he was one of the founders of the London Photographic Society. These experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances, which, with characteristic unselfishness, he made public during the early forties of the last century, were extremely useful in the study of photochemistry, which was then in its infancy, and were of great service for years to those who came after him and used his researches for the basis of their studies." Eder- HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY p. 326. "Included are reports on Hunt's earliest experiments on solar energy and its effect involving both vegetation and metallic salts or compounds. An introductory chapter on the discoveries of Daguerre and Fox Talbot is exceedingly useful as it establishes the range of various light sensitive materials applicable to photography, including platinum, iron and antimony. His is the first use of the word 'platinotype' with reference to platinum prints. The book as a whole is one of the most crucial and one of the earliest theoretical treatises on the science, and differs slightly from the later, 1854 edition, except in some more recent discoveries." From the Arno Press description THE LITERATURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY . Often referred to as the first history of photography, a distinction not quite true. Gernsheim - Incunabula No. 668. Roosens and Salu No. 7952.

Original blue diagonal-grain cloth, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, sides blocked in blind, new endpapers.

This copy has the £100 title plate, not transposed. The transposed plate is often suggested as a first issue point, though Hatton and Cleaver long ago dismissed this, stating that "It is merely one of the five cases in Chuzzlewit of triplicated steels, one of them reading '100£' and the other two '£100' ... all three of them in use during the issue in parts.

        Poems. Presentation Copy (contains A Visit From St. Nicholas)

      New York: Bartlett & Wellford, 1844. First Edition. Very good+ with a professional repaired backstrip and strengthened joints and hinges leaving intact the 1/2 leather (calf) and the patterned purple cloth covered boards. The gilt text of the title remains on the spine. A 12mo measuring 7 1/4" by 4 1/2" with the prior owner's name: "S. Victor Constant | New York" stamped on the front paste down. A presentation copy inscribed "To Miss Southey | with the respects | of the author. | June, 1844." On the verso side of the half title page, the author has also added a line of correction for page 58. 216 pages being a collection of 37 poems, the most important being A Visit From St. Nicholas. This is the first appearance of this now famous and beloved poem "in a collection of Moore's own verse, and thus his first public acknowledgment of authorship." (Marshall, The Night Before Christmas A Descriptive Bibliography of Clement Clarke Moore's Immortal Poem, p. 10) The poem first appeared in The Troy Sentinel on December 23, 1823 anonymously. (BAL, 14348) As stated in Marshall's bibliography regarding this title: "This is considered by many scholars to be the definitive version." One's imagination is provoked with the possible connection between the author's last poem titled: "Southey" which is an ode to his deceased wife, and the name of the person who was presented with this book: "Miss Southey".

        The Spoon; with Upwards of One Hundred Illustrations, Primitive, Egyptian, Roman, Mediaeval, And Modern. [At head of title:] Transactions of the Society of Literary & Scientific Chiffonniers; being essays on primitive arts in domestic life ... By Hab'k O. Westman

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1844. First edition. Title vignette, tailpiece, and 8 lithographed plates illustrating over 100 spoons. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary half green morocco and marbled boards and endpapers. Some scuffing to extremities, mild scattered (mostly marginal) spotting, but overall a solid, attractive copy. Bookplate of B. Pomeroy on front pastedown, and his name stamped in gilt at foot of spine. First edition. Title vignette, tailpiece, and 8 lithographed plates illustrating over 100 spoons. 1 vols. 8vo. A curious and delightful by one of 19th-century technological visionaries. The inventor and ethnologist Ewbank (1792-1870) emigrated to New York from England in 1819. "In 1820 he began the manufacture of metallic tubing in New York, and retired in 1836 to devote himself to literary and scientific pursuits. From 1849 till 1852 he was U. S. commissioner of patents ... He was one of the founders of the American ethnological society. He published 'Descriptive and Historical Account of Hydraulic and other Machines, Ancient and Modern' (New York, 1842; 15th ed., with additions, 1863); 'The World a Workshop, or the Physical Relation of Man to the Earth' (1855); 'Life in Brazil,' describing a visit to that country in 1845-6, with an appendix on a collection of American antiquities (1857); 'Thoughts on Matter and Force' (1858); 'Reminiscences in the Patent Office' (1859); and a variety of miscellaneous essays on the philosophy and history of inventions, which appeared chiefly in the 'Transactions of the Franklin Institute.' His 'Experiments on Marine Propulsion, or the Virtue of Form in Propelling Blades,' was reprinted in Europe. In 1860 he published an essay that he had read before the Ethnological society, entitled 'Inorganic Forces Ordained to Supersede Human Slavery.'"(Appleton's Cyclopedia) The attribution to Ewbank is based on the Library of Congress deposit copy, which bears the annotation, "By Thomas Ewbank". The "Society of Literary & Scientific Chiffonniers" is fictitious.

        Un Autre Monde

      1844. GRANDVILLE, J.-J. Un Autre Monde. Transformations, visions, incarnations... et autres choses. By Taxile Delord. [4], 295, [1] pp. Half-title and title-page printed in red. Illustrated with 133 woodcut vignettes, 15 full-page woodcuts, and 36 hand-coloured plates. Large 8vo., 268 x 196 mm, bound in contemporary half morocco. Paris: H. Fournier, 1844. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of Grandville's masterpiece. One of the spectacular, surreal illustrated books of the nineteenth century. "In this remarkable book, of the boldest possible originality, Grandville dared to reveal his dream world to the public" (Ray). The illustrations expose an imagination which was unlike anything that appeared in print before. Ray points out that the designs of Grandville certainly influenced Tenniel when he created the characters for Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. In this copy the hand-coloured plates, which have been carefully and well coloured, have captions in white letter as per Rebeyrat, except for that of the "Concert a la Vapeur", "Bal Masqué" and "Apocalypse due Ballet", which are in black letter. The text has some minor foxing throughout, but overall a pleasing copy in a contemporary binding, which is now hard to find thus. Carteret III, 285 (with reproduction).

        RESEARCHES ON LIGHT: AN EXAMINATION OF ALL THE PHENOMENA CONNECTED WITH THE CHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR CHANGES PRODUCED BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE SOLAR RAYS; EMBRACING ALL THE KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES, AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE ART

      Printed for Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, London 1844 - 8vo., vii, 303 pp., 32 pp. adverts, hand-colored engraved folding frontispiece, text diagrams. Recased in the decoratively blind-stamped publisher's original cloth. The lower edge of the binding is rubbed, with moderate wear at the tips. A very good copy. "Robert Hunt (1807 - 1887) was a librarian keeper of mining records the the Museum of Practical Geology and professor of mechanical engineering at the Royal School of Mines, at London. He carried on numerous photographic and photomechanical experiments and he was one of the founders of the London Photographic Society. These experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances, which, with characteristic unselfishness, he made public during the early forties of the last century, were extremely useful in the study of photochemistry, which was then in its infancy, and were of great service for years to those who came after him and used his researches for the basis of their studies." Eder- HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY p. 326. "Included are reports on Hunt's earliest experiments on solar energy and its effect involving both vegetation and metallic salts or compounds. An introductory chapter on the discoveries of Daguerre and Fox Talbot is exceedingly useful as it establishes the range of various light sensitive materials applicable to photography, including platinum, iron and antimony. His is the first use of the word 'platinotype' with reference to platinum prints. The book as a whole is one of the most crucial and one of the earliest theoretical treatises on the science, and differs slightly from the later, 1854 edition, except in some more recent discoveries." From the Arno Press description THE LITERATURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.Often referred to as the first history of photography, a distinction not quite true. Gernsheim - Incunabula No. 668. Roosens and Salu No. 7952. [Attributes: First Edition]

        MÉLANGES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES. SUPPLÉMENT DES NOUVELLES INSTRUCTIONS SUR L'USAGE DU DAGUERRÉOTYPE

      Paris: Chez L'Auteur, 1844. First edition. 8vo., [4], errata, 127 pp., [1] folded plate, 4 pp. priced catalogue. Modern cloth over boards with gilt titled leather spine label. A contemporary related article was glued to the reverse of the title page, leaving a moderate stain on the title page as well as the following leaf. There are a few faint spots of foxing, otherwise this is a bright and near fine copy. Charles Chevalier (1804-1859) was the leading French manufacturer of the camera obscura, lenses and optical instruments. In 1826, he furnished Niépce with a camera and lens of his own design for his early experiments in reproducing images through the agency of light. He told Niépce of the similar experiments of Daguerre, for whom he also made lenses and cameras, as well as advised him on his experiments. It is Chevalier who made the introduction which lead to the partnership between Niépce and Daguerre. Further, Chevalier supplied lenses and camera equipment for William Henry Fox Talbot. Charles Chevalier published his first manual in 1841; it was one of the earliest manuals of the daguerreian process. In this, his second manual, he has expanded upon the daguerreian process with the latest improvements, and now includes the paper processes of Herschel, Talbot, Hunt and Bayard.
