        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris 1845 - Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild creasing, and two skillfully repaired 2" and 2 2/3" tears in the right and top left margins respectively. A rare example of an original watercolour design for a porcelain tray, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience." ( Grove Dictionary of Art ).

        Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe, or descriptions et figures des plantes les plus rares et les plus méritantes.

      Chez Louis van Houtte, Éditeur 1845-1846. - 2 voll., in 8°gr., bella leg. coeva in mz. pelle verde con titoli e ricchi fregi impressi in oro sul dorso, piatti marmorizzati, pp.(4)-310 (solo il primo vol. ha le pp. numerate), pp. (238) nn.; 163 magnifiche tavv. in gran parte cromolitografate, alcune rifinite a mano (21 più volte ripegate,). Ottimo e raro esemplare. Great Flower Books p.84, Nissen BBI, 2254. Stafleu & Cowan, 15921. L'opera completa, di questo eccezionale periodico di floricoltura belga, è  in 23 volume, per un totale di circa 2480 tavole cromolitografate. Spesso viene proposta  in tre parti (voll. I-X; XI-XV e XVI-XXIII), fra loro distinte per una diversa titolazione al frontespizio. Tra il 1845 e il 1880 ques'opera apparve sotto forma di rivista, inviata a collezionisti e floricoltori, dal vivaista belga Louis van Houtte, fondatore di uno "Stabilimento" nei cui vivai si crearono bellissime varietà di fiori, che vennero apprezzate in tutta Europa, grazie anche alle stupende tavole che le ritraevano. L'attività ebbe un tracollo con la morte di van Houtte. Comunque nei 40 anni circa di vita della rivista poterono cimentarsi valenti litografi belgi. I nomi di Severeyns, Stroobant e Pannemaker sono diventati giustamente famosi. Tutte le tavole dei primi dieci volumi, dei quali i nostri due fanno parte, vennero stampate da Stroobant. A nostro avviso i primi 10 volumi sono i migliori della serie. L'incertezza nel numero delle tavole nasce dal fatto che quelle doppie e quelle quadruple vengono rispettivamente  conteggiate come due tavv.  e quattro tavv., ciò rispondendo alle intenzione dell'editore. Quest'ultimo però  non sempre rispetta la regola che si è imposto e conteggiava come singola una tavola doppia o, come se non bastasse, inserisce nella numerazione delle tavole a colori anche quelle litografate al bistro, che in linea  di massima ne sono escluse [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("L. Tieck").

      [Berlin oder Potsdam], 28. Januar 1845.. 2/3 S. Kl.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An Johann Valentin Teichmann (1791-1860), Intendanzrat in der Generalintendantur der Kgl. Schauspiele in Berlin: "[...] Bleibt es noch beim Sonnabend mit dem Blaubart so ersuche ich Sie, uns 3 Parkettbillets zu verschaffen u. Eins für unsre Friederike. Ich hoffe Ihre Frau ist besser [...]". - Tiecks Märchenstück "Ritter Blaubart" erlebte seine späte Berliner Erstaufführung an besagtem Sonnabend, dem 1. Februar 1845, und geriet zum veritablen Mißerfolg; eine einzige Wiederholung sollte im Jahr darauf stattfinden. - Johann Valentin Teichmann, der über Jahrzehnte hinweg den größten Teil der Intendanzgeschäfte besorgt hatte, stand bei den Autoren ebenso wie bei den Künstlern in hohem Ansehen; sein theaterhistorisch bedeutender Nachlaß wurde 1863 von Franz Dingelstedt herausgegeben. - Gebräuntes Papier mit erheblichen Randschäden, teilweise unterlegt; das Respektblatt alt abgetrennt.

        Plate 290 - California Partridge (California Quail)

      New York and Philadelphia 1845 - John James Audubon Selection from Birds of America, From Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories, octavo ed. New York and Philadelphia: J. J. Audubon and J. B. Chevalier, 1839-44. Hand-colored lithographs 10” x 6 1/2”; 15.25” x 18.75” framed 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. Even before the double elephant folio edition had been completed, Audubon was planning this, the octavo edition, in order to make his magnificent Birds of America available to a wider spectrum of people. In the introduction to the first part of his reduced format edition, Audubon wrote that he had “been frequently asked, for several years past, by numerous friends of science, both in America and Europe, to present to them and to the public a work on the Ornithology of our country, similar to my large work, but of such dimensions, and at such price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library.” All of the birds from Audubon’s original folio aquatints were reduced by camera lucida for lithography by the artist’s son John Woodhouse, and new species were added. The octavo edition was expanded to 500 plates, and included the text of Audubon’s “Ornithological Biography.” It was beautifully printed and colored by John Bowen of Philadelphia, one of the finest American lithographers of his day, and issued in 100 serial parts over a five-year span. Audubon’s “little work,” as he called it, was a great success, attracting nearly 1,200 subscribers and becoming the format through which Audubon’s ornithology was most widely disseminated in the nineteenth century.
