        DENDROLAGUS URSINUS - Black Tree Kangaroo

      London 1845 - This superb folio-sized lithograph with original hand-color from John Gould’s monumental work MAMMALS OF AUSTRALIA, published in London from 1845-1863, is in excellent condition measures 15”x 22” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. The rare and threatened Black Tree Kangaroo, endemic to New Guinea is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List due to loss of over 60% of its habitat to land clearing and human development. Formally present in south-western Australia, only small populations exist on Bernier and Dorre Islands in Western Australia. It has been placed on the IUCN Red List as endangered. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalog exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Gould became captivated by the mammals of Australia during his time gathering specimens for the Birds of Australia. As he recounted in the preface: “It was not until I arrived in the country, and found myself surrounded by objects as strange as if I had been transported to another planet, that I conceived the idea of devoting a portion of my attention to the mammalian class of its extraordinary fauna.” Gould produced The Mammals of Australia in an attempt to document the animals of that continent as exhaustively as he had its birds. The artist had a sense that a book on animals would not be as successful financially as his work on birds, for he was straying outside the area in which he was most distinguished. Yet the precision of the lavish illustrations was a testament to Gould's ability -- and that of the artists with whom he collaborated -- to embrace diverse fields with equal talent. Despite Gould's lack of optimism, the Mammals of Australia received immediate acclaim of documenting striking species that were all but unknown (including several which have since gone extinct). The book continues to be considered one of the most important works that Gould ever produced. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine natural history books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his works have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance. All of the Gould prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        The Oregon Question; or a Statement of the British Claims to the Oregon Territory, in opposition to the Pretensions of the Government of The United States of America

      New York.: William Taylor.. First Edition.. 1845.. Black and white folding map, 40pp, 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches, original paper wrappers. Edges of wrappers and spine have been reinforced with paper tape which appears to be archival, light creasing and wear; small ink mark on fore edge of title page, 3/4 x 3 inch paper loss to lower right corner of Preface page not affecting the text, occasional ink marginalia, bookplate of Frederick E. Ellis attached to inside front cover, overall good to very good condition. The map has two inkspots, otherwise very good condition. A scarce first edition, in the original paper wrappers. Falconer, a British jurist and explorer, had traveled in the United States and the Republic of Texas, and here sets forth his "argument relating to the pretensions of the American Government to the Oregon Territory" with "additions [that] have been suggested by a work of a very intemperate character, written by Mr. Farnham, and largely circulated in America, which contains statements that I could not have anticipated, and which it is right to notice. The subject itself, unfortunately, has obtained a new importance through the extraordinary conduct of the House of Representatives at Washington in passing a Bill for the Occupation of the Oregon Territory; a measure which, if it should become law, the general Government of the United States is incapacitated to enforce, so long as it shall respect the solemn obligations of an existing treaty...." The folding map shows the area under dispute, with a "Boundary between GB and US" running from the east to the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. Howes F17. Wheat Transmississippi 463. The Library of Congress lists this title, but no copy of this first edition was found on WorldCat. The bookplate of Frederick E. Ellis, a tireless conservationist who was known as "the Father of Shaw Island" in the San Juans is attached to the inside front cover. .

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      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.

        Laws and Rules of the Sydney Synagogue Beth Yisrael

      Printed at the Atlas Office, by D. L. Welch, Sydney, Australia 1845 - Personal copy of Chief Rabbi Dr. N. M. Adler and signed by him on front wrapper. Gutter split. Some wear. Original pictorial printed wrappers bound into modern-backed marbled boards. Sydney¿s Great Synagogue (known in Hebrew as Beth Yisrael) is a congregation that has a history going back to the 1820¿s and remains of active significance to this day. When New South Wales was founded as a penal colony in 1788, among the 751 First Fleet convicts were at least 16 Jews. Later, a petition to the British Colonial Governor Sir Ralph Darling for a Jewish house of worship was refused. However, by 1832, with the presence of 25 free Jewish settler families, the formal establishment of a congregation arrived. The congregation was punctilious over rules of respectable synagogue conduct. The order of service and religious principles of the congregation were those laid down by the Chief Rabbi of London. The present Rules is exceptionally rare, OCLC lists just one copy worldwide. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [London, Royal Geographical Society], 1839-1845. - 8vo. pp. 125-156 and 103-160 of the Geographical Journal of 1839 and 1845, respectively. With a text illustration and two large folding engr. maps of the South East Arabian coast. Offprints in modern wrappers. Early British study of today's Yemen coast. Captain S. B. Haines had seized Aden in 1839 on behalf of the East India Company, for use as a coaling station for ships steaming to and from India. Appointed Political Agent by the Bombay Presidency of the EIC, Haines served in this capacity (without leave) for the next fifteen years, presiding over Aden’s rapid expansion as a fortress and as a port which by the early 1850s boasted a population of some 20,000. Haines’s deep personal commitment to the revival of Aden’s prosperity ultimately led to his tragic imprisonment in Bombay for debt and to his death (aged only 58) in 1860. But in South West Arabia his name lived on and for decades local tribesmen referred to the inhabitants of Aden as "Awlad Haines" ("Haines’s children"). - Insignificant edge tear to one map, otherwise fine.

        Remarks on the Plan of a Railway, from Calcutta to Diamond Harbour, with Spacious Docks at the Latter Which is Added a Letter to the Directors of the Honourable East India Company, By the Chairman of the Committee of Management

      W H Allen & Co, London 1845 - 3 folding maps, 40pp. re-cased (long ago] with the original printed paper covers laid down, some fading and marks to covers and a small section of the rear cover lacking revealing the card beneath, some pulling away from stitching but all three plans are very clean and remain neatly folded. A scarce ephemeral survival from the very earliest years of railway construction in India. The two plans at the front of the pamphlet are: a) Plan showing the line of the Proposed Calcutta & Diamond Harbour Docks Railway [77 x 40 cm, one small edge tear without loss], b) Plan of the present Calcutta & Diamond Harbour Roadon which it is proposed to construct the Calcutta & Diamond Harbour Railway copied from the Chart of the Approaches to the Hoogley published by W H Allen & Co [38 x30cm]. At the rear is a folded plan, water coloured in outline "Enlarged Sketch of the Harbour Creek shewing the Proposed Diamond Harbour Railway from Calcutta"on a scale of 450 feet to 1 inch. The plans are lithographed by Day & Haghe of London. The need for this railway, approximately 55 miles long, was the very dangerous nature of the final approaches up the Hoogly to Calcutta where sudden violent storms often added to the dangers of the shallow draft over and around sandbanks. By utilising an existing road for the track bed costs were minimized. The appendix comprises a 24pp extract from a report by Major J T Boileau of the Bengal Engineers on the practicality of such a railroad, which he had written in 1837.

        The Madras Almanac and Compendium of Intelligence for 1845

      Madras: Printed and published by Edmund Marsden, at the Asylum Press, Mount Road,, 1845. Compiled from the most authentic sources, and published for the benefit of the Military Male Orphan Asylum. Octavo (225 × 148 mm). Contemporary sheep on marbled boards, skilfully rebacked to style with the original label laid down. 3 hand-coloured plates of signal flags, based upon Marryat's system. Slightly rubbed on the boards, part of front free endpaper neatly excised, typically somewhat browned, and consequently brittle in the margins, but overall a very good copy, sensitively restored. First edition. These local vade mecums, annual publications produced using local materials, are inevitably uncommon on the market. Although substantial at around c.700 pages, they have a low survival rate. That they were retained after their supersession is demonstrated by the fact that this copy has the presentation inscription dated in 1849 of the Massachusetts-born missionary and educator of Ceylon, Rev. Daniel Poor, to the title page. Genuinely compendious, covering the civil, military and religious establishments, including salaries; the legal administration; professional regulations, including those for palankeen bearers; post office regulations and charges; ship arrivals and departures; births, deaths, marriages and estates probated within the presidency; this is an excellent source of reference for the understanding of the nature of the British administration in India.

        Fine long Letter Signed to Inge, 10 pages 8vo on three separate sheets (small pin-holes at the head of each), Tapton House, 24 December 1845.

      - Describing his visit to Spain where he had been conducting a survey with a view to making a railway, and describing in gory detail a bullfight that he had witnessed. George Stephenson had been invited to Spain to examine the proposed line of the 'Royal North of Spain Railway'. He left England with Sir Joshua Walmsley and was joined in Paris by Mackenzie, the contractor for the Orleans and Tours Railway, who showed them his works and accompanied them to Tours, where he presumably left them to continue their journey by carriage. Stephenson was to spend the better part of two weeks, rising at dawn each day, in examining the ground, but in the event the problems which it presented, in particular the need to construct two considerable tunnels, and the failure of the Spanish government to provide practical and financial guarantees, meant that the project was abandoned.Stephenson begins the letter by announcing his recovery from a severe attack of pleurisy [the malady from which he was to die in three years' time] following his return from Spain, and then gives his views on Spain and the difficulties of the terrain. '. it is a lost Country, and I can hardly see how it is to be improved: it is hemmed in by mountains along the Midteranean [sic] and along the Bay of Biscay by the Pyrenees; these mountains are so high and rugged that it would be very difficult ['with' deleted] to make good roads over them. I have crossed the Pyrenees 5 times in different places in order to find out the lowest pass: I rode 30 miles among the mountains just under the Snow ridge; we had an English carriage with us and we had it drawn in situations by bullocks & mules where a carriage had never been before & I can assure you I enjoyed my journey much but rather over fatigued.''We had letters from the Political chiefs from Town to town which facilitated our journey very much. I was 4 days in Madrid & was introduced to nearly all the Grandees in that place. Narvaes the Prime Minister [Ramón Maria Narváez, later Duke of Valencia] is a clever, bold looking man.' Leaving aside the railway problem Stephenson proceeds with his vivid description of the bullfight, which seems to have at once appalled and excited him. This account appears to be in contradiction to Samuel Smiles's assertion (Lives of George and Robert Stephenson, 1874) that he had declined the invitation to attend:'There was a Bull fight at Madrid while I was there - a most horrible affair to witness! I saw one bull kill 3 horses in 5 minutes! when the Bull made the attack upon the horse & horseman he rushed upon him with such fierceness that he lifted both horse and rider from the ground one horn into his heart and the other into his intestines; of course the life was soon out of the horse when the bull immediately made the attack on another: there were about 12,000 people to witness this fight. When the bull has killed so many horses it is then his turn to die. It requires an extraordinary clever man to dispatch him[,] the bull is deceived by rushing at a red flag while the man that holds the sword slips behind the horse & before the Bull has time to turn he rushes his sword betwixt the shoulders & through the spinal marrow. If the mark is well taken the Bull instantly drops - more of this horrible affair when I see you! only think of the Ladies visiting this sight!' He gives his views on the Spanish people before regretfully declining Inge's invitation to spend Christmas with him.'The Peasantry amongst the mountains are a finer race of people than they are ['amongst' deleted] in the large towns. Betwixt the Pyrenees & Madrid the productions of the soil are corn & wine; the latter a penny a bottle! you get as many grapes for a penny as you could eat; notwithstanding all this it is very far inferior to England. .'

        Map of the World on Mercators Projection. New York 1845. Geographical Part engraved by John M. Atwood, NY.

      Ensign,, New York: 1845 - Interesting rolling map of the world on its original rollers. The map is very decorative, with 4 corner vignettes of the peoples and animals of four continents, a border of shells of the world & a border of flags of the world. The corner vignettes depict America, Asia, Europe & Africa. The shell border is composed of 46 different vignettes of shells of the world, which are not merely designs, but portrayals of different shells, making it quite interesting to a conchologist. The map is also surrounded by a border of flags, both country and ship flags, 91 in total. Some of the notable flags include Texas, New Zealand, American ensign, East India Company, China, Cochin China, Batavia, Japan, Birman Empire, Tunis, Morocco, Salee, Tetuan. The western United States has relatively early Western cartography. "Oregon" meets "Mexico" at the "1819 border", north of San Francisco. The western-most named states are Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas & Louisiana, although the United States territory runs to the Rocky Mountains. Texas is recorded as separate from the United States & Mexico both by borders & color. Tracks of explorers include Columbus (1st-4th voyage), Cabot, Vasco de Gama, Drake, Anson, Cook (1st- 3rd voyage), LaPerouse, Vancouver & Wilkes' American Exploring Expedition. Arctic expeditions include Capt. John Ross, Capt Parry (2 voyages), Franklin & Capt Ross again.The Antarctic area is replete with voyages of discovery - three paragraphs describe voyages with dates & descriptions of Cook, Weddell, Crozier & Ross. The coastline is depicted with Wilkes' discoveries. The animals depicted in the "Asia" quadrant are largely Australian, including a kangaroo, joey, swan, spotted dasyure, wombat, platypus, flying squirrel & thylacine. Australia has many notations. Western Australia occupies the western half of the continent, and marked sites include Perth, Swan River, Canning River, Fremantle, Albany, Swan River Settlement. Southern Australia is denoted in a separate color with Adelaide marked. Tasmania & Hobart appear. Port Phillip, Port Jackson and Sydney are marked in New South Wales, which occupies the entire east coast. New Zealand has no settlements noted, but the Auckland & Campbell Islands are noted with discovery dates. Wilkes' 1840 route & landfalls are marked in red. Lithograph in black & tones of blue, red, yellow, pink & green. Modern linen backing restoring old cracks, with old varnish removed, a very professional job. Some brown spotting visible over the Pacific Ocean area. 45.5 x 31".

        Plate 126 - Caribou

      New York 1845 - John James Audubon Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America 150 hand colored lithographs: each 27 ¾" x 21 ½" New York, 1845-1848 In the 1830s, as the final plates were being completed for John James Audubon's monumental Birds of America, the artist began to gather material for his second and equally ambitious undertaking. Planning to complete the definitive study of American wildlife, Audubon set out to document the animals of North America, and to present them in a format as impressive as that he used for his birds. Moreover, despite his advancing age, the great naturalist was determined to make the journey to the American West to personally document the little-known wildlife of the frontier. Following in the footsteps of Catlin, Bodmer, and Miller, Audubon was only the fourth artist to travel up the Missouri River. He arrived there before Christianity, smallpox, syphilis, gunpowder, and alcohol changed the frontier, its native peoples, and its wildlife indelibly -- even if these forces had already made their presence felt -- and his Quadrupeds offer us one of the great pre-Civil War glimpses of the West. The Quadrupeds, as Audubon envisioned, would complete his record of the animal life of North America. Audubon began the project in 1839 from his home in New York, where at first he solicited specimens from his correspondents throughout the east, recommending that animals be sent to him preserved in "good common rum." His assistants in the endeavor were his sons Victor and John Woodhouse, as well as John Bachman, a Lutheran minister who had been the artist's closest friend and supporter for many years. The artist's enthusiasm at the start of the project was unbounded. In 1840, Audubon wrote to Bachman: "I promise you that I will give the very best figures of all our quadrupeds that ever have been thought of or expected I am growing old, but what of this? My spirits are as enthusiastical as ever, my legs fully able to carry my body for ten years to come Only think of the quadrupeds of America being presented to the World of Science by Audubon and Bachman." By 1841, Audubon had drawn one hundred figures, including thirty-six species, for his new book. It soon became clear, however, that not all animals were available to him in the East, and moreover he was determined to use "drawings made on the spot and not from stuffed museums' moth-eaten remains." He began to plan for his trip west, a journey he had wanted to make for twenty-two years. In March of 1843, one month before his 58th birthday, Audubon set out on the last great trip of his long career. He traveled down the Ohio River to St. Louis, boarded a steamboat bound for the Upper Missouri, and rode as far west as Fort Union at the mouth of the Yellowstone. His eight-month journey was unprecedented in American natural history. The result of the naturalist's years of field research, travel, and seemingly endless study was the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, the outstanding work on American animals produced in the 19th century. The arduous journey, however, took its toll. Still, Audubon managed to complete seventy-seven drawings before failing health kept him from his work. Before his death in 1851, Audubon's sons managed to solicit some three hundred subscriptions for the Quadrupeds. Together, the three men, along with John Bachman, produced an unequaled record of American wildlife, matching the great combination of art and science attained in the Birds of America. Like that series, the Quadrupeds are wonderfully animated, superbly rendered, and beautifully printed in large format. As one reviewer wrote, the American people should be proud, for "in the 'Quadrupeds of America' we have at last a Great National Work, originated and completed among us."

First edition in English. "Hunt's translation includes all but the section on 'statistics and hygiene of establishments for the insane, together with the medico-legal relations of the subject' (translator's preface). The translation does not reproduce the plates from the French edition" (Norman). "The first modern textbook of psychiatry. Esquirol's book, compiled from papers and articles published over the past two decades, summarized the experience gained over a lifetime of observation and treatment of mental illness, in which he closely followed the humanitarian principles of his teacher, Philippe Pinel. Esquirol was one of the first to apply statistical methods to clinical studies of insanity. He recognized the uselessness of the traditional terminology for mental illnesses, and created new descriptions and classifications based upon his own observations. He was the first to distinguish between hallucinations and illusions, and between dementia and idiocy; he also provided the classic description of paresis, coined the term "monomania" and distinguished certain depressive states ("lypemanias") from other psychoses. Along with Pinel, Esquirol is regarded as the founder of the French school of psychiatry; his Maladies mentales was a basic psychiatric text for over half a century." (Norman 724).

Newhouse, an artist who confined himself almost exclusively to scenes of mail and stage coaching and sport driving. The book is an excellent example of Newhouse's work, as his images usually portray the speed associated with the open road, and the calamity or comedy that speed can bring about" (National Sporting Library).At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Messrs. Fores (established 1785-86) "..specialised in publishing and selling the best sporting prints" (Siltzer).Along with Newhouse's Scenes on the Road (1834-35) it would be difficult to find a book which better illustrates the world of coaching as it must have been than The Roadsters' Album. Each aquatint has been expertly hand-colored with a vividness that would be hard to surpass.The Plates:1. Travelling in a Hunting Country - "I hope you are not much hurt, Sir."2. An Unwelcome Fare - "All that luggage by the Mail, Ma'am, quite impossible."3. The Drag is broke and we are on the Bank.4. Is the Bottom pretty sound?5. A False Start.6. Taking an Inside Birth [sic] - "It strikes me we're going to have some rough weather."7. "No time to lose, Ma'am; here's the other coach close behind."8. "Hold hard! You have forgot the lady."9.
