        FABBRICHE E I DISEGNI DI ANDREA PALLADIO E LE TERME. Nuova Ed. Italiana Foggiata Sulla Vicentinese di Bertotti Scamozzi Ampliata e Fornita di Note da Celestino Foppiani

      Genova G. Decamilii 1845 - Five volumes bound in three. A beautiful 19th Century edition of the monumental critical "Opera" of Palladio of Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi, expanded with the commentary and notes of Celestino Foppiani. With a total of 233 impressive folio copper engraved plates. Large folio, finely bound in morocco backed boards with titles and numbers on the handsomely decorated spine in gilt. 3 cc., 135; 3 cc., 88; 3 cc., 72; 3 cc., 92; xiv, 28. Engraved Plates: LII, LI, LI, LIV, XXV. A very handsome and pleasing copy of this important and beautiful book, with some expected evidence of wear and use, some typical or occasional staining to some leaves because of use. SCARCE AND BEAUTIFUL PRINTING of the magnificent "Scamozzi Palladio" with the commentary Ottavio Scamozzi first written between 1776 and 1785. Containing full commentary and notes on each building and the commentary and notes of architect Celestino Foppiani. Palladio's designs and work to this day remain the central pillar of classical architecture and all architecture which followed. ‘Palladio’s lasting influence on architectural style in many parts of the world was exercised less through his actual buildings than through this, his textbook. The book is divided into four sections: orders and elementary problems, domestic building, public building and town planning and temples. Palladio’s style was directly inspired by Roman classical models through the writings of Vitruvius and Alberti. Its characteristics are those of classicism: symmetry, order, fixed mathematical relations of the parts to each other and to the whole, logic and monumentality. Palladio followed the rules of classical Roman architecture more closely than any other architect.In spite of the vogue for the baroque and the fact that Palladio left no immediate successors, his book exerted a powerful influence on contemporary architecture and classical ideals until the end of the eighteenth century. As a practicing architect Palladio worked mainly in Vicenza, Venice and the Venetian countryside, especially along the Brenta River. His Villa Capra (known as La Rotonda) near Vicenza became virtually a prototype of the Palladian style, and it was widely and faithfully copied. At the end of his life he left plans for the tour de force of trompe l’oeil, the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, which was finished by his pupil Vincenzo Scamozzi.’ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Plate 67 - Black American Wolf

      1845 - John James Audubon (1785-1851) Plate 67 - Black American Wolf Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America New York: 1845-1848 Hand colored lithograph Paper size 27 ¾” x 21 ½” ; 35” x 41” framed In the 1830s, as the final plates were being completed for John James Audubon’s monumental Birds of America series, 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 and sweeping as that he used for his birds. The result of the artist/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 Quadrupeds, as Audubon envisioned, would complete his record of the animal life of North America. The artist’s enthusiasm at the start of the Quadrupeds was unbounded. In 1840, Audubon wrote to his friend and collaborator John Bachman, “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.” Despite his newly acquired wealth and celebrity, Audubon insisted on executing many of the preparatory drawings and watercolors personally, enlisting a select few to help. The contributors to the project included Bachman, a Lutheran minister who had been the artist’s closest friend and supporter for many years, who wrote all of the descriptions and acted as a scientific editor for the work. Audubon’s two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor, also took critical roles. With his sons, Audubon traveled through the Eastern woodlands, and through Missouri to the Rocky Mountains. Together they collected and drew specimens along the Mississippi, as well as in coastal regions of Florida and the East Coast. As Audubon’s health and eyesight began to fail, the help of John Woodhouse and Victor became increasingly crucial to the Quadrupeds, now a family project. Audubon managed to complete seventy seven drawings before failing health kept him from his work. Before he died 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.

Recto im Rand links und verso am Oberrand Reste alter Verklebung. Ein für das Werk der Künstlerin ungewöhnliches Motiv, das jedoch beweist, daß sie auch auf dem Gebiet der figürlichen Malerei Qualitätvolles leistete.. Die Tochter eines höheren Beamten im Zarenreich war Schülerin von L. Willroider (1845-1910) in München und dort anschließend vor allem als Landschaftsmalerin tätig. Von München aus unternahm sie Reisen in ihre Heimat und nach Georgien (Tiflis). Seit 1891 beteiligte sie sich alljährlich an den Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast. Weitere Ausstellungen folgten in Nürnberg, Dresden, Wien, Bremen, Danzig und Berlin. Kurz vor dem Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges zog sie nach Bad Tölz, wo eine Straße nach ihr benannt wurde. Spätestens hier dürfte sie die Maler-Freundin Gertrud Trefftz (1859 - nach 1930) kennengelernt haben. Sie war Mitglied mehrerer Künstlervereinigungen, wie etwa der Allgemeinen Deutschen Kunstgenossenschaft und der Münchner Künstlergenossenschaft. Prinzregent Luitpold besaß eine mit "Tiflis" betitelte Arbeit der Künstlerin.

Records of Lyell's visits to North America in 1841-2, and 1845-6 to deliver the Lowell Lectures in Boston. While there Lyell travelled widely throughout the United States east of the Mississippi and much of Canada, seeing all of the important geological sites, including Niagara Falls, spectacularly represented in the frontispiece to volume I of Travels …. He studied the fossil deposits and posited that the Great Lakes were the remnant of a vast prehistoric sea, travelled extensively through the South, observing the social classes and commenting upon slavery. These volumes followed his groundbreaking work, the Principles of Geology which was an important influence on Darwin in developing his theory of evolution.

        Buffalo Hunt from Catlin's North American Indian Portfolio

      New York: James Ackerman, 1845. A VIVID IMAGE OF A BUFFALO HUNT FROM THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED BOOK DEVOTED TO THE NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES OF THE UPPER PLAINS Lithograph with original hand-color In 1827, George Catlin, an illustrator from Philadelphia, became the first artist to attempt the perilous journey up the Missouri River, and the first to create visual records of his experiences traveling among the Plains Indians of North America. His motivation was entirely unselfish and idealistic, and he labored unceasingly to persuade his contemporaries that Native American culture should be honored and preserved. The artist himself best expressed his goal in the preface to the first edition of his North American Indian Portfolio: "The history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian." Catlin's project filled a great need. After Lewis & Clark's celebrated expedition up the Missouri River into the Pacific Northwest, Europeans read avidly of the sights and experiences of the voyage. They traced the route followed by the explorers, using the map that accompanied the wildly popular printed volumes on the journey. But a crucial aspect was missing from the accounts of the expedition of Lewis and Clark. Without pictorial documentation, Europeans (and Americans) were unable to visualize the unbelievable journey. This lack meant that the people, landscape, and customs of the vast American frontier remained abstract ideas-and much less vividly imaginable-to anyone who had not personally experienced the voyage. When Catlin first issued his volume in 1844, his animated, colorful, sympathetic views of Native Americans finally filled the void of imagery. Suddenly, Europeans and Americans were able to visualize the people and customs of whom they had read so extensively, and to gain a level of respect for the Native Americans, so often feared, misunderstood or misrepresented. The artist's stunning lithographs ranged from portraits to depictions of tribal ceremonies, from the anecdotal to the idealized. Catlin appealed to his readers with the thrill of the hunt and the mystery of ritual, and conveyed his respect for his subjects masterfully. The immediacy of his images is irresistible, drawing viewers into the scenes and portraits with unprecedented intimacy. But even when Catlin issued the North American Indian Portfolio, just fifteen years after his expedition, his crusade to preserve America's "Noble Savage" was failing. The Indians were beginning to give way to the expansion of the American frontier and to European disease. Because most of Catlin's paintings and collections were destroyed by fire and neglect, his lithographs remain the principal medium by which his message was conveyed, and they have come to hold even greater significance today than when they were first published. This striking lithograph captures the thrill and action of the hunt, as well as the rolling hills and grassy expanses of the Great Plains. "Buffalo Hunt, Chase" represents not only a valuable historical record of the customs of the Plains Indians, but is an engaging and splendid work of art.. Book.

        Le Jésuitisme vaincu ou anéanti par le socialisme ou les Constitutions des Jésuites et leurs instructions secrètes en parallèle avec un projet d'organisation du travail

      Plon Frères 1845 - In-8 relié, 220pp. Bel exemplaire ayant appartenu à Pierre Janet avec le cachet gras de sa bibliothèque sur la page de faux-titre. Considéré comme un précurseur du marxisme, Théodore Dézamy (1808-1850) écrit dans le journal Le Populaire, d’Etienne Cabet dont il est devenu le secrétaire. Il se démarquera de Cabet qui cherche à concilier la bourgeoisie aux intérêts des ouvriers, pour appeler le prolétariat à se libérer lui-même. Il va développer les idées matérialistes d’un communisme unitaire. En 1848, il fonde avec Blanqui la Société Républicaine Centrale. Au communisme pacifique de Cabet et au socialisme chrétien de Lamennais, il oppose une doctrine matérialiste et athée qui le porte en grande estime par Marx. L'ouvrage sur le jésuitisme vaincu et anéanti a reçu le suffrage d'Eugène Sue. Belle reliure demi-chagrin de l'époque. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Various places. ca. 1845-1865].. Collection includes three folio volumes, a lengthy manuscript on folio sheets, and two smaller sketchbooks. Hundreds of pages of text. More than 200 total ink and watercolor, ink and wash, or pencil illustrations (see details below). Three bound volumes in contemporary bindings of half leather and marbled boards, one binding covered with sailcloth. Bindings with expected wear, but quite clean internally. Smaller sketchbooks unbound and with wear to outer leaves, but clean internally. Very good overall. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A truly remarkable collection of illustrated journals created by an American sailor, David E. Marshall of Connecticut, filled with outstanding colored illustrations of his voyages and adventures. Marshall had an incredibly creative mind, and developed an alternate persona for himself, "Ned Cleaveland," a.k.a. "Wicked Ned," who becomes the protagonist of some of Marshall's more outlandish deeds, as recounted in these volumes. Marshall was also a very talented draftsman, and this collection is a marvelous illustrated journal of an American sailor's life at sea in the mid-19th century. The illustrations in these volumes are simply splendid, the work of an accomplished amateur artist. Marshall's drawings are wonderful depictions of his service in the American Navy, on privateering vessels, and on whaleships, and also of his adventures around New England. There are well over two hundred illustrations in all, the majority of them full-page and in color. Heavily represented are views of Marshall's travels as a sailor, with illustrations and views of ports and cities in South America, the Pacific (including Tahiti and Hawaii) the Arctic, the British Isles, and scenes around the American Northeast, including his native Connecticut. Several of the illustrations show Marshall's whaling adventures, including vibrant scenes of whale hunting, while many others are beautiful depictions of sailing vessels. Taken as a whole, Marshall's wide-ranging text becomes a series of interlinked stories recounting his adventures over a span of some twenty years, and ultimately explaining what he considers to be his repeated failure to make a success of himself. Included are narratives and poems regarding Marshall's life aboard military vessels and a whaler; a description of an incident involving the privateer, America, at Rio de Janeiro; experiences in Hawaii; recipes for paint and brightwork cleaning; instructions on how to keep a log; thoughts on the Civil War, missionaries, temperance, and hypocrisy; and thousands of lines of poetry, from mini-epics to brief fragments. There is also a manuscript of some 10,000 words, written aboard a Union gunboat on the Mississippi River during the Civil War. Of special note are two versions of a 600-line poem about Marshall's whaling voyage around the world on the ship, Henry. Among the most interesting aspects of Marshall's prose and poetry is his creation of the "Wicked Ned" alter ego, a sort of "evil twin" of Marshall, who spills blood as a privateersman, romances and abandons women, causes chaos ashore, swears to mend his ways, but ultimately returns to his rough and rowdy life. Little is known of David E. Marshall beyond the information he gives us in these volumes. He seems to have been born around 1807 in Milford, Connecticut, and in another volume he copies what appears to be his will, dated 1865, writing that he was born in Milford, and that he still resides there. Marshall continues his double identity in this document, asserting that he is also the "Edward Cleaveland herewith subscribed." Marshall served in the United States Navy aboard the U.S.S. Raritan and the U.S.S. Savannah, and also on a Union gunboat on the Mississippi during the Civil War. He was also a sailor on the whaleship, Henry, which sailed out of Sag Harbor, and served aboard a privateer and various merchant vessels. In his 1881 book, RECOLLECTIONS OF CURIOUS CHARACTERS AND PLEASANT PLACES, author and traveller Charles Lanman includes a chapter called "A Story of a Modern Mariner," which is a first-person account of the life of Lanman's friend, David Marshall, though in the book he refers to himself as "Tom Cleaveland." Lanman concludes the chapter by writing that "'Cleaveland' was himself his worst enemy." Adding another dimension to this curious life story, a published print is located at Princeton University, entitled "U.S. Frigate Savannah. struck by a heavy Squall when entering the Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, between the hours of 7 & 8, on the evening of July 5th 1856." The illustration was published by Endicott and Company of New York, and is identified as being "drawn by Wicked Ned." Marshall was, in fact, a sailor aboard the Savannah and was on the ship when it visited Rio in 1856. The contents of the various volumes are as follow: 1) Bound folio volume, titled in manuscript, "David E. Marshall of Milford Conn." [205]pp. total, including 101 illustrations, most of them full-page and almost all of them colored. A second manuscript titlepage reads: "Works of Ned Cleaveland." The illustration on the first titlepage is of Poseidon sitting upon a rock, while an American eagle, arrows and olive branches in its talons, flies past in the background. The second illustration in the volume shows a woman, perhaps Columbia, atop a sea serpent. This volume includes a version of Marshall's long poem of his whaling adventures, entitled "Whaleing [sic] Voyage on the 'North West' in the Henry of Sag Harbor in 1846, 46 & 47 by 'Wicked Ned.'" The tone of the poem varies, from elegiac to wistful to enthusiastic. Marshall writes: "And now farewell my dear Sag Harbor girls, for I must bid you all a long adieu as I am bound, a cruise around the world in the Ship Henry. She's a whaleman too. I've had enough of shore. This weary bout I've frollicked very hard indeed likewise so let old women loudly rant and rout about the man who madly drinks, and dies. The times are hard and money very scarce good folks on shore all seem so wondrous sad; To stay on shore would be a foolish farce while on the North West right whale may be had." The text of the poem gives details of the voyage, occurrences on board, ship, and the hunt for whales. Other texts in this volume include sailing instructions, a poem written on board the Raritan and another entitled "Farewell to Cape Horn," as well as verses regarding military battles, including that at Churubusco during the Mexican-American War. The illustrations in this volume include scenes of Marshall's whaling voyage, including a striking illustration of "Monganuea" (i.e. Mount Maunganui, New Zealand), and views of whale hunting. There is also a color illustration of "Lobos Island" (apparently in the Galapagos), done while Marshall was a crew member of the U.S.S. Raritan in 1852. There are a number of riverside and seaside views, including views of Tobago, Panama, Puna, Callao, San Lorenzo at Chagres, Table Mountain on the Cape of Good Hope, and a lovely view of St. Thomas. Several of the views are in and around New England, including a view of the coast of Milford, Connecticut, another along the Housatonic River, near Milford, and a political cartoon entitled "The Present Days of New England." There are also several portraits of figures Marshall encountered, and much more. 2) Bound folio volume, titled in manuscript “Sketchbook of David E. Marshall.” [256]pp. total, including ninety- nine illustrations, most of them colored and many of them full-page. This volume also begins with allegorical watercolors of the United States, represented by the figure of Columbia. As with the previous volume, it is filled with text and illustrations describing and depicting Marshall's travels. The texts in this volume are as wide-ranging as in the previous, and include another version of Marshall's poem about his whaling voyage aboard the Henry. In one stanza he describes a stop in the Pacific to refill their stores: "Now we arrived at Wy-ta-taks fair isle to get our fruit and pumpkins and sour lime, while oranges and lemons made our crew to smile and then we fill'd away for far Northwestern climes, on Mellus banks our sail took in by night stood quarter watches through the darkened gloom hoping next day to see a fish and fight and kill a whale amidst the white sea foam." Another poem is entitled "Last words to the Dead" and was written in Valparaiso in 1851. A long essay entitled "Reminiscences of By- Gone Times" gives a history of Marshall's life through approximately his first forty years. He writes: "As at present I have nothing more profitable to do I shall endeavour to give a description of some parts of my life which otherwise might roll away into oblivion when I am forgotten myself. I am now at the noontide of life and full three quarters of that time have been spent in the service of daddy Neptune. And one half at least has been expended in ploughing up his blue and poetic fields; on board of different ships under different commanders and different employs. And to sum the whole in a small space I can say I have served in vessels from a clam boat to a seventy-four, have been in all capacities in the merchant service, from cook to Captain...." Marshall follows with a lengthy narration, some thirty- seven folio pages long, recounting his adventures at sea. This volume is also filled with marvelous and accomplished illustrations, most of them colored. Foremost is a dramatic colored illustration of a whale hunt, with blood spurting from the whale's blowhole. There is also a dramatic colored illustration of the wreck of the Steamer Independence at Margarita Island off the coast of Venezuela on February 16, 1853. Other views include Sugar Loaf Mountain at Rio de Janeiro, Praya Grande in Brazil, a view of the east side of Maunganui Bay in New Zealand, Payta in Peru, Capetown, three views of Tahiti, three views of Valparaiso, as well as views of Madagascar, Marshall's island, Callao, and illustrations of naval flags of various nations. In the United States there are illustrations of Niagara Falls, Connecticut and Long Island, sailing ships, the Bunker Hill Monument, Stratford Harbor, a view of Sutter's Fort in California, and a drawing of "Culloma" showing the area near Sutter's Fort where James Marshall discovered gold in January 1848. 3) Bound folio volume, including sailing rules and regulations, poetry, journals, and tales. [135]pp. total, including twenty-eight illustrations, most of them full- page. The text of this volume includes directions for keeping a sailing log, instructions on how to polish brightwork, an essay written "At Sea" in October 1856 describing a near- violent encounter between the "suspected privateer America" and a British ship, and another essay regarding life on board a privateer. Twelve pages of manuscript (accompanied by several illustrations) give an account of a few weeks of Marshall's experiences in the summer of 1856 on board the U.S.S. Savannah at Rio de Janeiro. There is also an essay on the Sandwich Islands and the missionaries there, and Marshall's assessment of what he sees as their hypocritical views. Illustrations include Arctic scenes, a view of Trinidad, illustrations off the coast of Brazil, views around Connecticut, and more. 4) Manuscript on loose folio sheets of ruled paper. 47pp. Plus a full-page colored illustrations of a sailor. The first page of the manuscript is datelined: "On board U.S. Ship 'Lampero' River Mississippi Nov. 19, 1862." Other entries are dated February 9th and 25th, 1863. Marshall's essay is a long, rambling disquisition on American history up to that point, the causes of the outbreak of the Civil War and the morality of the argument on both sides of the conflict. While not espousing particular pro-slavery views, he heaps scorn on Northern Abolitionists for bringing the Union to a state of Civil War. For Marshall, the abolitionists are of a piece with temperance advocates and other moralists, and he holds no sympathy for them: "The determination of the Abolitionists, Temperance, and other fanatics to prosecute the present contest to extermination of all who oppose them, the tremendous debt which they have imposed upon the country and suicidal and foolish transactions in Army & Navy have at length aroused the Sons of the States west of the Mississippi, and ere long we shall without doubt hear that they too have seceded and left poor Yankeedom in possession of all the glory." 5) Small sketchbook of tied-together leaves (not bound), containing text and pencil illustrations on a total of [117]pp. 6) Small sketchbook of tied-together leaves (not bound), containing text and pencil illustrations on a total of [22]pp. This sketchbook and the one before it include manuscript text and pencil illustrations, including sketches and details of faces, architectural ornaments, ships, cannons and weapons, navigational tools, landscapes, etc. The text is mostly comprised of poetry and anonymous letters. An outstanding collection of illustrated travel manuscripts from an American sailor who was a talented artist, and who was also possessed of a fertile and imaginative mind. Through his art, prose, and poetry, David Marshall, a.k.a. "Wicked Ned," provides us with an enthralling view of his life and the world. ked_ned.html

        Report of the Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains in the Year 1842, and to Oregon and North California in the Years 1843-'44. 28th Congress, 2d Session, [174].

      Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1845. - 8vo., (9 ¼ x 6 inches). (A bit spotted throughout). Large folding lithographed "Map of an Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains in the year 1842 and to Oregon & North California in the years 1843-1844" by Charles Preuss, hand-colored in outline, in rear pocket (evenly browned, one or two short tears at folds); 2 folding lithographed maps; 2 full-page lithographed maps; 22 lithographed plates (a bit spotted). Original publisher's brown cloth, decorated in blind to both covers, the smooth spine in five blind-ruled compartments, gilt-lettered in one and the rest stamped in blind (rebacked, preserving most of the original spine). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of William L. C. Pennington, a private in the Union Army during the Civil War, to rear pastedown; bookplate of Willard S. Morse (1856-1935) to front pastedown. First edition. Senate issue, with the astronomical and meteorological observations omitted from the House issue and subsequent editions. Fremont's report, written with the help of his wife Jessie Benton, and map "changed the entire picture of the West [and] represented as important a step forward from the earlier western maps of the period as did those of Pike, Long, and Lewis and Clark in their day. [Fremont's map] represented trustworthy direct observation, a new, welcome, and long overdue development in the myth-encrusted cartography of the West. To Fremont and his magnificent map of his Second Expedition all praise. An altogether memorable document in the cartographic history of the West, and for it alone Fremont would deserve to be remembered in history. This map marked not only the end but the beginning of an era" (Wheat). In 1842 Fremont was commissioned to head "a 25-man, four-month expedition to survey and map the region of the emerging Oregon Trail through South Pass on the Continental Divide. A Report of an Exploration . . . between the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountains . . . (1843), the lively, factually detailed government report that Frémont and his wife produced after the journey caught the public imagination: images of Frémont's guide, the then little-known Christopher 'Kit' Carson, riding bareback across the prairie, and Frémont himself, raising a flag on a Rocky Mountain peak, entered the national mythology. "In 1843 Frémont set out on a far more ambitious journey to the Oregon region. Disregarding government orders to return by the same route, he went south to Nevada and, in a dangerous midwinter journey, over the snow-covered Sierra Nevada into Mexican-held California. By the time the expedition returned east across the southern rim of what Frémont defined as the Great Basin, they had completed a bold fourteen-month circuit of the West, traveling 6,475 miles by their own calculations. The Frémonts' account of the journey, A Report of the Exploring Expedition to Oregon and California . . . (1845), enthralled the nation. Skillfully combining adventure, scientific data, and detailed practical information for emigrants, supplemented by a valuable map prepared by expedition cartographer Charles Preuss, it was "monumental in its breadth - a classic of exploring literature" (William H. Goetzmann, Exploration and Empire [1966], p. 248). Powerful propaganda, it stirred Americans to head west, guided, as pioneer Sarah Royce stated, "only by the light of Frémont's Travels" (Pamela Herr for ANB online).

      Paris: Publie par J. Hetzel, 1845-6.. Two volumes. Thick quarto. 19th century three quarter crimson morocco, raised bands, spines gilt extra, t.e.g. Profusely illustrated with plates and vignettes in text, the large majority being after drawings by Gavarni. Very shallow snag at crown of one spine, light occasional rubbing at edges, otherwise a large, generally clean, largely untrimmed set. First editions of this ambitious undertaking, featuring contributions by Balzac, Sue, Sand, Stendahl, Musset, Nodier, Gautier, Nerval, and many others, preceded by a general history of the city by Theophile Lavallee. The over two hundred wood-engraved plates are based on Gavarni's drawings, and Ray lauds them as being "of even greater interest than the 320 wood engravings of his OEUVRES CHOISIES...The engraving is superior for the most part, and they are new conceptions, not versions of his lithographs...His designs make LE DIABLE A PARIS the culmination of the Romantic tradition of DIABLERIE, which began with the lithographic albums of the 1820s. It is also the last of the big books of collaborative illustration." RAY 236. CARTERET III:203-7.

        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris 1845 - Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, 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 ).
