        Fortaleza de São Francisco Macao.

      Macau: probably mid-1844. Watercolour, 220 x 260 mm; ink caption lower right; mounted. An important original watercolour of Macau. This once formed part of a series of watercolours of the European enclaves on the South China coast in the mid-1840s. The series was described in full in the Hordern House catalogue Edward Ashworth, Artist & Architect (available online at www.hordern.com). The suite of views of Hong Kong from that series was acquired by the Hong Kong Museum of Art.The Fortaleza de São FranciscoFortress building was instinctual to the Portuguese for their overseas possessions. No self-respecting town in early modern Portugal could be considered so without some castle installation or defensive structure, so it was not surprising that the Portuguese chose to construct the same quite soon after settling in Macau. Repeated Dutch attacks on the enclave at the start of the seventeenth century gave the Portuguese authorities the excuse needed to overcome Chinese hostility and rapidly build a chain of fortresses and defensive walls. This enclosed the higher ground and excluded the lower Chinese town stretching along the north-western flank of the peninsula. Most of these fortresses were built adjacent to religious sites such as chapels, churches, convents or monasteries from which their names derived. From the Chinese imperial authority's point of view it also had the unexpected advantage of keeping the Europeans neatly and visibly contained within their own territory. Completed in 1629, the Fortaleza de São Francisco, a Franciscan monastic site, sat at the northern edge of the Praia Grande, with Bom Parto fort at the southern end, and the São Tiago da Barra battery further down at the southernmost tip close to the A-Ma Temple. The walls were made of a material called chunambo or taipa. Built by African slaves, it was a unique concoction based upon earth, straw, lime and oyster shells that, when pounded together and reinforced with wooden strips, formed a cementitious material more absorbent of projectile bombardment than stone. By the time Ashworth was in the colony the forts had long since become obsolete, their guns silent. But the resilience of their unusual walls remained intact.Tinged with Romanticism, this is somewhat out of character with Ashworth's other studies. The artist, having possibly seen Chinnery's fine pencil sketch of the fortress drawn in 1825 (**), chooses a very similar view, but with one distinct difference. Unlike Chinnery, where the focus is upon the formidable mass of boulders and rocks, Ashworth has pulled the viewer back onto a surprisingly turbulent seascape. The relatively calm waters within the sweeping embrace of the Praia Grande and the Porto Interior (inner harbour) are just beyond view, though one would not think it from this spot: a sampan with its floating family stray perilously close to the rocks upon which the fortress crouches above. The Fortaleza de São Francisco, not the most imposing of Macau's sea batteries, nevertheless has been artistically amplified in the scene by the threatening water and visually raised up by the promontory of rocks girdling it. Ashworth also neatly encapsulates, through the figures of two distant vessels entering Macau's bay - a Chinese junk and Western clipper - that rare intercourse of early nineteenth-century commerce between two civilisations engaged, almost uniquely, at Macau. Two civilizations found rarely in agreement or in having any understanding of the other.Edward AshworthEdward Ashworth was born near Exeter, Devon in 1814, and trained as an articled apprentice to Robert Cornish, architect to Exeter Cathedral. He then moved to London to work under another Exeter-born man, Charles Fowler, architect to the Duke of Bedford and a founder-member of the Institute of British Architects. Unhappy with the quality of his commissions, Ashworth decided to immigrate to New Zealand. Aged 28, he left England in May 1842 aboard the ship Tuscan, bound for Auckland. The trip included a brief stay in Melbourne, landing at Port Phillip in September 1842. Ashworth continued on to Auckland, arriving a month later in October. After failing to find work as an architect he accepted a position as tutor to the children of the first New Zealand Governor, William Hobson, recently deceased. Other tutoring posts soon came his way. During his two-year stay, Ashworth made numerous watercolours of Auckland and its street life including an expedition into the Waikato, now treasured views of the very first stages of colonial occupation. This was to become a habit, drawing and painting the landscapes and streetscapes of each place he visited. In 1843 he gave a lecture to the local Mechanics Institute on Greek architecture in which his drawings were widely admired for their 'exquisite' quality. By early 1844 he had decided to make his way back to England via a slow sojourn in China - presumably he had heard of the sudden flurry of building construction then underway in Hong Kong. Ashworth left Auckland in February 1844 arriving for the second time in Australia that same month, this time in Sydney, New South Wales. He spent three months in that city, again painting and drawing, before heading across to Hong Kong aboard the American ship Navigator by way of Batavia (Jakarta) and Macau. The timing was impeccable. The first 'official' land auction of Hong Kong under Crown sovereignty had taken place just a few months earlier, in January 1844, and a building boom ensued. Now, finally, he could find actual architectural commissions and build.Ashworth returned to England in 1846 and set up practice in Exeter. His first job in the county was as clerk of works for Up Ottery Manor, a new, suitably expansive neo-Tudor pile, which he completed for the 2nd Viscount Sidmouth in 1847. Here, in bucolic Devon, he remained until his death in 1896, devoting much of his work to the restoration of parish churches.Ashworth's newly-discovered watercolours of Macau add significantly to the corpus of material explored by previous European painters such as the Daniells, William Alexander, Auguste Borget and George Chinnery, although with a greater urbanity and intimacy to the settings, partly as a result of his close interest in detail, particularly architectural.ProvenanceEdward Ashworth's family, by descent, in a group of drawings.AcknowledgementsWe are grateful to Chris Cowell who prepared a skilful analysis of the Ashworth drawings; for information summarised here we also thank Marian Minson and the staff of the Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, New Zealand; Cesar Guillen Nuñez, Historian of Art at the Macau Ricci Institute, Macau; Dr. Stuart Braga, Sydney; Sarah Cunich, Hong Kong; the staff of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, and the National Library of Australia, Canberra.Bibliography: AshworthAshworth, E.

        La Journée du Chrétien, Sanctifiée par la Prière et la Meditation.

      Lyon and Paris: Librairie Catholique de Perisse Frères, 1844. Small octavo. viii, 524, (v) pp. A seventeenth-century silver gilt, jeweled binding covering a French prayer book, which was placed into the binding at a later date. Very fine in a modern, velvet-lined dropback box. The Journée du Chrétien concerned the daily duties of Christians, including devotional prayers to saints and angels, and was similar in construction and function to a Book of Hours. This copy is exquisitely presented in a seventeenth-century jewel-encrusted binding, both covers of which bear a filigree ornament in all four corners as well as, at the top, a crucifix in which Adam's skull appears at the feet of Christ to symbolize the cleansing of Adam's sin through Christ's blood. In the center of each cover is the imperial double eagle of the Holy Roman Empire, and below is a pair of hands clasping a heart. Both of the covers and the spine are decorated with dozens of semiprecious stones including amethysts, garnets, simulated sapphires, and turquoise; the clasps are encrusted with similar jewels, as are the elongated head- and tailbands. The paste-downs are red velvet, endleaves blue silk. This is a truly remarkable binding of uncommon beauty, with all the stones present and firmly set, and only minor wear to the gilt. The book previously had been in the Hohenzollern collection exhibited at Frankfurt's Städel Museum in 1928, and more recently was owned by Cornelius Hauck, who had acquired it from the famed German bookseller Emil Offenbacher in the mid-1950s. The inside of the front endpaper bears Hauck's bookplate, and the stamp of "Stadtbibliothek" appears on the verso of the title page.

        Extraits des auteurs et voyageurs qui ont ecrit sur la guyane

      Paris: Imprimerie de Bethune and Plon, 1844. xcii+616 pages. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in contemporary three quarter calf with black spine label and gilt lettering. Publications de la Societe d'Etudes pour la colonisation de la Guyane francaise, Number 4. The bibliographical catalogue occupies pages 579-616, and contains descriptions of 240 works on Guiana. Sabin 56097. First edition.French Guiana (French: Guyane française, officially Guyane) is an overseas department (French: département d'outre-mer, or DOM) of France, located on the northern coast of South America. It has borders with two nations, Brazil and Suriname. Like the other DOMs, French Guiana is also an overseas region of France, one of the 26 regions of France. Its currency is the euro. The prefecture is Cayenne. The addition of the adjective "French" comes from colonial times when three such colonies existed: British Guiana (now Guyana), Dutch Guiana (now Suriname) and French Guiana. The three are still often collectively referred to as the Guianas. French Guiana was originally inhabited by a number of indigenous American people. It was settled by the French during the 17th century. After the Treaty of Paris in 1763, Louis XV sent 12,000 settlers to French Guiana to colonise the region. One and a half years later only a few hundred survived.[2] Its infamous ÃŽle du Diable (Devil's Island) was the site of penal settlements from 1852 until 1951. More than 70,000 French convicts were deported to French Guiana between 1852 and 1939.[3] In 1809 a Portuguese-British naval squadron took French Guiana for the Portuguese Empire. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1814 the region was handed back to the French, though a Portuguese presence remained until 1817. A border dispute with Brazil arose in the late nineteenth century over a vast area of jungle, leading to the short-lived pro-French independent state of Counani in the disputed territory and some fighting between settlers, before the dispute was resolved largely in favor of Brazil by the arbitration of the Swiss government. In 1946, French Guiana became an overseas department of France.Condition:Front inner hinge separated, rubbing to hinges and corners else a very good copy.

        Les marrons.

      Paris, Ebrard, 1844. ____ Première édition. Très rare. Le seul exemplaire dans le Ccfr et dans OCLC est celui de la Bibliothèque Nationale. Ce roman, le premier de la littérature réunionnaise, dénonce l'horreur de l'esclavage à la Réunion. Louis Timagène Houat (1809-1890), né à Saint-Denis de La Réunion était un mulâtre. Libre de couleur, il fut arrêté en 1835 puis emprisonné, pour incitation à la révolte des esclaves lors de la répression du "complot de Saint-André". Condamné à la prison à perpétuité, sa peine fut commuée en exil et, en 1838, il fut expulsé vers la France. Il y publia ce roman en 1844, ce qui fait de lui le premier romancier réunionnais. Quatre ans plus tard, le 20 décembre 1848, l'abolition de l'esclavage était prononcée à La Réunion. Les "Marrons" est inspiré de "Bug-Jargal" de Victor Hugo et de la nouvelle d'Alexandre Dumas, "Georges". Illustré de 14 charmantes lithographies hors-texte. Au vu de la rareté de cette première édition dans les dépôts publics, on imagine qu'il a été tiré à très petit nombre. Coupes de la reliure frottées, quelques rousseurs, mais bel exemplaire, bien relié.***** First edition, (the second in 1989 !).

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      London: R Hastings, 1844. viii+376 pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Title in red and green with published 1845 but published in 1844. Volume V. (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841–56 and 1859–62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". The Chess Player's Chronicle became the first successful English-language chess magazine. In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which whilom infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902.Condition:Corners bumped, earlier owner's stamp to title, some occasional pencil notations, recased with new end papers else a very good copy.

        The Night Toil; or a Familiar Account of the First Missionaries in the South Sea Islands...

      London: G.J. Palmer for J. Hatchard and Son, 1844. Octavo, engraved frontispiece, map and seven text vignettes; full contemporary calf; a fine copy. A particularly fine copy of an updated account of the London Missionary Society's activities in Tahiti, aimed at a juvenile market but full of information not readily available elsewhere. Mrs Mortimer drew initially on the Duff voyage accounts of the late-1790s, but for the later period used unpublished letters and journals and numerous reports printed in Missionary Transactions and the Quarterly Chronicle. Her account was first published in 1838; this second edition has additional material, including a violent attack on the French Catholic missionaries who had returned to the island in 1843. Letters from Queen Pomare to Queen Victoria about the "invasion" are quoted from and there are recent voyagers' accounts of the island, including Fitzroy's visit on the Beagle.Provenance: presentation inscription from Anna Everett to Lucy Edgar, Clapham, 20 December 1849.

        An Alphabet of Quadrupeds, partly selected from the Works of Old Masters, and partly drawn from Nature.

      London: Joseph Cundall, 1844. Small square octavo, frontispiece and 24 sepia plates, all edges gilt; in the original blind-stamped green cloth, lettered in gilt, First edition, uncommon. An attractive illustrated alphabet, with a charming image of a Kangaroo. Among the other plates are etchings after Rembrandt and Albrecht Durer.Handsome chapter initials decorate the accompanying text which is enchantingly written. 'Fox. Look at this cunning, cruel fellow, making ready to spring among the chickens... But he will be punished tomorrow I think, for I heard uncle Tom order his red coat to be ready for hunting...' The Kangaroo entry remains the highlight, 'The Kangaroo is brought from New Holland: we have some in England in the Zoological Gardens. Their Nature is not at all savage.'Henry Cole, who published this and other children's books under the pseudonym F.S. (Felix Summerly), was a notable figure of nineteenth-century England. A distinguished civil servant and associate of John Stuart Mill, he was eventually knighted and is credited with producing the first commercial Christmas card. The Home Treasury series, to which the Alphabet belongs, was edited by Cole and aimed to improve upon the standard of children's books. A little sunned especially to spine, a very good copy.

        The Botanic Garden parts XVI-XIX.

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, 1841-1844. The collection comprises 46 separately issued parts in original wrappers, numbered 194-240, being complete parts XVI-XIX for the years 1841-1844; lacking one issue for October 1842, otherwise a continuous series each with a handcoloured plate illustrating four species followed by letterpress; beautifully preserved large paper issue preserved in a custom built folding case. Benjamin Maund (1790-1864) botanist and horticulturist, started out as apprentice to a printer and bookseller in Ludlow named Thomas Griffiths. In 1815 he bought his own business and moved to the High Street, where he prospered, combining his work as a printer and publisher with his passion for plants; at the rear of the business he had a large garden and was able to experiment with seeds and plants obtained from around the world. Clearly somewhat of a social pollinator himself, Maund worked in closely with master horticulturalists at the Birmingham Horticultural Society and similar associations. The publication of the Botanic Garden spanned the years 1825-1851.Each issue of the Botanic Garden contains three parts. The first is the Botanic Garden as such: a plate illustrating four species followed by letterpress descriptions of each. The second part is The Floral Register, another independent work issued serially and separately paginated. The third is titled The Auctarium of the Botanical Garden; containing miscellaneous information connected with the cultivation of a garden, and natural history.It was intended that each of these three parts would be assembled and separately bound when completed, evidenced by the inclusion of free-standing title-pages and index leaves for each part. This fact makes the survival of an almost complete run in original wrappers, such as this fine example, highly unlikely. The rear cover of each of the wrappers is a gardener's calendar, listing seasonal tasks and maintenance chores, and would have been discarded when the constituent parts were bound up. Not content with his already ambitious project, Maund added a fourth part to the publication commencing January 1843, being Professor Henslow's Dictionary of English and Latin Terms used in Botanical Descriptions. As the front wrapper indicates this was available as a large paper issue (1s. 6p.) and regular for a single shilling apiece. This collection here offered is an excellent example of the large paper issue.Maund was overwhelmingly successful in sharing his horticultural enthusiasm with a wide public, and enjoyed the support of none less than Queen Victoria. The plants included are primarily exotics from across Europe and beyond, including Nepal, Mexico, Siberia, Virginia, China, the Falkland Islands, and so forth. One Australian acacia, illustrated with a two page description, is included. The engraving and handcolouring of the plates is unusually good, with fine tone and colour gradation, and Maund's own daughters were actively involved in the process. Not all sets are coloured, as a loosely inserted advertisement announces that an uncoloured 'Gardener's edition' will commence from 1843. Of additional interest is a catalogue of some six pages bound into one of the issues, advertising plants available from the Handsworth nursery near Birmingham, J. Pope and Sons proprietors. Two of the rear covers are missing, and a few wrappers a little chipped; nonetheless a very fine set.

        Moeurs, Usages et Costumes de tous les peuples du monde, d'après des documents authentiques et les voyages les plus récents...

      Brussels: Librairie Historique, 1844. Four volumes, large octavo, with a total of 204 finely handcoloured costume plates; contemporary half crimson roan, flat spines ornately gilt. Scarce and beautiful work on the costumes of the world, finely illustrated with a wonderful series of highly coloured full-page plates. The fourth volume covers Oceania and includes the Aborigines of Jervis Bay and Kangaroo Island, and the exotic peoples of Pitcairn Island, New Guinea, Timor, Java, New Zealand and Hawaii. There are also images familiar to us from published voyage accounts such as the Tahitian dancer after John Webber from the account of Cook's third voyage, and portrait profiles of Maoris based on Sydney Parkinson's images published in the official account of the first voyage.As usual, the plates in the publication do not exactly correspond with the lists published within the work. The table of contents describes 185 plates (actually 188, but an erratum shows that only 185 were issued) and subscribers could also order a series of twelve special supplementary plates - as here - making a total of 197 plates. This copy however has 204 plates. A full collation is available on request.

        The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit. With Illustrations by Phiz.

      London: Chapman and Hall 1844. First Edition. Octavo, pp. (xv)624. Illustrated throughout with 38 original plates by Phiz, plus frontispiece, plus engraved title-page. Eleganty bound by Bayntun of Bath in half dark blue crushed morocco gilt. Text is clean, plates with some very light toning; near fine. The reward notice on the signpost of the vignette title is incorrectly printed as 100£ which is often referred to as the first issue, though Hatton and Cleaver suggest that there is no priority and that both plates were used in the serial parts preceding the first edition in book form. A most attractive copy. Charles Dickens' 'Martin Chuzzlewit' is considered the last of his picaresque novels, and was written and serialized in 1843-1844; initial sales of the monthly parts were disappointing, compared to the authors' previous works, so Dickens changed the plot to send the title character to America. This allowed the him to portray America, which he had recently visited, as a near wilderness, whose pockets of civilization were filled with deceptive and self-promoting hucksters. The main theme of the novel is selfishness, which is portrayed in a satirical fashion using all the members of the Chuzzlewit family. The novel is also notable for one of Dickens' great villains, Seth Pecksniff, whose rise and fall follows the arc of the novel's plot. Book Collector No.271, 'The Great Illustrators'.

        The New South Wales Government Gazette... Vol. 16...

      Sydney: W.J. Row, 1st July - 31 December, 1844. Thick folio; in contemporary half calf with gilt-lettered labels. A fine collection of the New South Wales Government Gazette for July to December 1844, in an original binding by William Moffitt, a free convict and Sydney's first bookbinder of note. Examples of Moffitt's work are scarce. Although worn, this handsome yet utilitarian binding of half calf with marbled paper boards retains some of the gilt tooling of the spine and the original lettered labels.William Moffitt was the first skilled Sydney bookbinder, rising from humble beginnings as an assigned convict. In July 1827 Moffitt arrived in New South Wales aboard the Guildford and set up his own shop in 1830. Clearly an entrepreneurial and capable man, Moffitt amassed considerable wealth from land speculation during this turbulent time in the colony's history. He took on several apprentices who later became successful bookbinders in their own right, notably Charles Harwood and George Springate.Unlike the rapid advent of decorated and lettered cloth case binding in Britain, Australia remained relatively immune to large scale industrialization of book production, with a reliance on older hand-production binding techniques through most of the nineteenth-century. It was not until the 1880s that the larger publishers introduced mechanized case binding. William Moffitt was one such example of a binder reliant upon traditional methods who diversified into the hand binding of stationery items such as logbooks and ledgers. Eventually this aspect of the business eclipsed the binding of printed books, and Moffitt's business was eventually amalgamated into the highly successful stationers and booksellers W. C. Penfold. Early Australian bookbinders often had a reasonable education but written memoirs are scant and binders labels (such as the finely engraved example seen on the endpaper of this volume) provide valuable evidence of their activities and workmanship. Worn; a few gatherings foxed else fine.

        Commerce of the Prairies

      1st Edition New York: Henry G. Langley, 1844. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with only New York in imprint), complete with large folding map. One of the most valuable and comprehensive sources for understanding pioneer life in the Great Plains and Southwest. The large folding map is the first to display the Staked Plains of Texas. Hailed as a cartographic landmark, it includes the locations of forts, military roads, and trading posts. It also identifies the Oregon Trail and Native American settlements, and traces the routes of the earlier explorers Boone, Long, Pike, and Cooke. Convinced that a journey west was necessary to restore his health, Josiah Gregg, in 1831 set out from Missouri on the first of what was to become eight journeys across the prairies. An acute observer, Gregg took careful notes of the geography and geology of the Southwest, and the attitudes and culture of the people (including particularly valuable insights into the Indians of Texas and New Mexico). Over a decade later, "Gregg began compiling his travel notes into a readable manuscript and in the summer of 1843 went to New York to secure a publisher. His Commerce of the Prairies, which came out in two volumes in 1844, was an immediate success. It went through two new editions in 1845, later a fourth and fifth edition, and in 1857 appeared in a sixth edition under a different title. The book, which also had a large sale in England and was translated into French and German, remains the cornerstone for all studies of the Santa Fe Trail" (H. Allen Anderson, Handbook of Texas Online).New York: Henry G. Langley, 1844. Octavo, original gilt-stamped brown cloth. Two volumes. A clean, bright, un-restored copy in the original cloth: text clean with only light foxing. Scarce and fragile map fine save for one closed tear at the far right hand side, starting at the main horizontal crease and continuing for 2" diagonally upward and to the left; some loss to head and tail of spine of volume I, bindings unusually clean and bright. Very Good.

In the Preface, Farnham states "the following pages are devoted to an examination of the American Title to the Oregon Territory...The conclusions at which I have arrived are these: That we own Oregon by purchase from Spain, the sole discoverer and first occupant of this Coast; by purchase from France, to whom England, by the Treaty of Versailles, relinquished her claim to it; and by our own discovery and prior occupancy of Columbia River." From the library of Frederick E. Ellis, a tireless conservationist who was known as "the Father of Shaw Island" in the San Juans. Howes F48; Wheat Transmississippi 480.

        Chinese Street in Macao.

      Macau: probably mid-1844. Watercolour, 370 x 274 mm; ink caption at centre below; original cropping marks and marginal annotations relating to subsequent publication; now in acid-free mount to original framing dimensions. An important original watercolour of Macau. This once formed part of a series of watercolours of the European enclaves on the South China coast in the mid-1840s. The series was described in full in the Hordern House catalogue Edward Ashworth, Artist & Architect (available online at www.hordern.com). The suite of views of Hong Kong from that series was acquired by the Hong Kong Museum of Art.Chinese Street in MacaoThis recently-discovered drawing appears very familiar, for the reason that it was one of the images to have been turned into a lithograph (Plate 5) for Ashworth's essay 'Chinese Architecture', first published in 1851 by the Architectural Publication Society. This explains the cropping marks and side instructions to the engraver and printer around its margins.The watercolour depicts a street of Chinese shops. Concerning the published version Ashworth writes rather brusquely in his essay of: 'A street in Macao, the Chinese part of the town. These shops are quite second rate. The foolish custom of constructing segment roofs to verandahs is here displayed to disadvantage'. Presumably he is referring to the roofs to the left, drainage - if left unprotected by an additional roof - being an obvious problem with their inward returns. If we are to believe the written evidence, it seems that Ashworth drew this scene more as a visual, moral lesson in bad design rather than for any painterly or romantic compulsion, though some ethnographic fascination with such an intimate Chinese setting must certainly have played a part.On this original drawing, at the lower right, Ashworth has scribbled in pencil: 'The effect of this is to be copie[d] with the colour of the other draw[ing]'. This could be a note to his lithographers Messrs. Day and Son, a reference to another street scene by Ashworth that would become Plate 4: 'Street Scene, Canton, near the Foreign Factories', since both exhibit an identical viewing angle and perspective. In addition, the eaves of the buildings along the Canton street display similar 'segment roofs' of the pattern Ashworth so despised in Macau.Edward AshworthEdward Ashworth was born near Exeter, Devon in 1814, and trained as an articled apprentice to Robert Cornish, architect to Exeter Cathedral. He then moved to London to work under another Exeter-born man, Charles Fowler, architect to the Duke of Bedford and a founder-member of the Institute of British Architects. Unhappy with the quality of his commissions, Ashworth decided to immigrate to New Zealand. Aged 28, he left England in May 1842 aboard the ship Tuscan, bound for Auckland. The trip included a brief stay in Melbourne, landing at Port Phillip in September 1842. Ashworth continued on to Auckland, arriving a month later in October. After failing to find work as an architect he accepted a position as tutor to the children of the first New Zealand Governor, William Hobson, recently deceased. Other tutoring posts soon came his way. During his two-year stay, Ashworth made numerous watercolours of Auckland and its street life including an expedition into the Waikato, now treasured views of the very first stages of colonial occupation. This was to become a habit, drawing and painting the landscapes and streetscapes of each place he visited. In 1843 he gave a lecture to the local Mechanics Institute on Greek architecture in which his drawings were widely admired for their 'exquisite' quality. By early 1844 he had decided to make his way back to England via a slow sojourn in China - presumably he had heard of the sudden flurry of building construction then underway in Hong Kong. Ashworth left Auckland in February 1844 arriving for the second time in Australia that same month, this time in Sydney, New South Wales. He spent three months in that city, again painting and drawing, before heading across to Hong Kong aboard the American ship Navigator by way of Batavia (Jakarta) and Macau. The timing was impeccable. The first 'official' land auction of Hong Kong under Crown sovereignty had taken place just a few months earlier, in January 1844, and a building boom ensued. Now, finally, he could find actual architectural commissions and build.Ashworth returned to England in 1846 and set up practice in Exeter. His first job in the county was as clerk of works for Up Ottery Manor, a new, suitably expansive neo-Tudor pile, which he completed for the 2nd Viscount Sidmouth in 1847. Here, in bucolic Devon, he remained until his death in 1896, devoting much of his work to the restoration of parish churches.Ashworth's newly-discovered watercolours of Macau add significantly to the corpus of material explored by previous European painters such as the Daniells, William Alexander, Auguste Borget and George Chinnery, although with a greater urbanity and intimacy to the settings, partly as a result of his close interest in detail, particularly architectural.ProvenanceEdward Ashworth's family, by descent, in a group of drawings.AcknowledgementsWe are grateful to Chris Cowell who prepared a skilful analysis of the Ashworth drawings; for information summarised here we also thank Marian Minson and the staff of the Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, New Zealand; Cesar Guillen Nuñez, Historian of Art at the Macau Ricci Institute, Macau; Dr. Stuart Braga, Sydney; Sarah Cunich, Hong Kong; the staff of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, and the National Library of Australia, Canberra.Bibliography: AshworthAshworth, E.

        To ti kong Small Temple nr. Macao

      Macau: probably mid-1844. Watercolour, 215 x 290 mm; ink caption at lower right; in mount. An important original watercolour by the English artist and architect Edward Ashworth who travelled through Macau and Hong Kong in the 1840s. The T'ou T'ei Temple in Patane, Macau, situated near the Luís de Camões Garden, is among the oldest and most famous of such temples. "To ti kong Small Temple nr. Macao"T'ou T'ei (Tu Di Gong / To ti kong), the 'God of Earth', held sway over all the land. There are many temples dedicated to T'ou T'ei in Macau, a god commonly worshipped for centuries on the peninsula and neighbouring islands. Among the oldest and most famous is the T'ou T'ei Temple in Patane (Pou Tai Un), of which Guillén-Nuñez has identified this Ashworth watercolour to be a rare, early view. The Patane shrine, always significant, may take on more importance given the recent proposal by Macao officials to declare the earth god Tou Tei a UNESCO World Heritage. Sitting at the junction between the Rua da Palmeira and the Rua do Patane, the temple rises up on a granite footing by the base of the Luís de Camões Garden. Wooded and hilly, this adjacent garden was formerly part of the residence of the China director of the English East India Company, and therefore known as Casa Garden. The British vacated the house and grounds in 1835, presumably due to the loss of the tea monopoly during the course of their renewal of charter in 1833. The new owner, a Portuguese, had a grotto built in the grounds in which he placed the bust of Portugal's national poet Luís de Camões, since Macau tradition argues that the poet wrote part of his epic poem The Lusiads in the vicinity of the present garden sometime in 1557. Because of the area's legacy Ashworth, along with other Europeans, would have had privileged access to the garden, a popular destination for this relatively small community.The angle of this intimate painting is an interesting one for Ashworth. Taken from an unusual viewpoint, this is his most adventurous attempt at a picturesque composition, of a playful interplay between foreground and background to be found within the catalogue. There is no dominant, central vanishing point, rather an askew view with the temple's entrance partially concealed and again further concealed by overhanging foliage. Ashworth painstakingly reproduced the various woven decoration ornamenting the transverse beams. While overall, the rectilinear structure of the temple is amplified and offset by the streaming and fanning fronds of bamboo which appear to press and squeeze against it upon either side. The only glimpse we have of the expansive garden landscape beyond appears within the frame of one of the large roundels or 'moon gates' of the temple's projecting walls.Edward AshworthEdward Ashworth was born near Exeter, Devon in 1814, and trained as an articled apprentice to Robert Cornish, architect to Exeter Cathedral.
