        An original design for three porcelain vases

      [Paris: 1845 or later]. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks and minor creases. 15 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. 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."

        Wi-jun-jon

      [London: Henry Bohn, 1845]. Hand-coloured lithograph, deluxe issue cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card in imitation of an original watercolour, title label mounted beneath the image 'No. 25. / Wi - jun - jon. / an Assineboin chief. / (From Catlin's N.A. Indian Collection.)'. Sheet size: 17 1/2 x 12 1/8 inches. A fine image from the de luxe issue of Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of native-American life Wi-jun-jon, an Assiniboine chief and distinguished member of his tribe, was chosen as delegate to a Washington meeting in 1832. Travelling down the Missouri by boat, he first met Catlin in St. Louis, and his portrait was painted in his exceedingly beautiful native costume. When Catlin next saw Wi-jun-jon, it was upon the Chief's return trip from Washington, where he had exchanged his clothing for a military suit of blue broadcloth with epaulettes. So impressed was Catlin by the transformation that he painted this double portrait showing the Assiniboine chief going to Washington and returning to his home. In the image of Wi-jun-jon on his return trip he is wearing a top hat (where previously he wore a feathered headdress), smokes a cigarette (where previously he held a long pipe), leans on an umbrella and cools himself with a French-style fan. Cf. Abbey Travel 653; cf. Field Indian Bibliography 258; cf. Howes C-243; cf. McCracken 10; cf. Sabin 11532; cf. Wagner-Camp 105a:1.

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

      Ensign New York:: Ensign,. 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".

A new edition with an introductory essay, and numerous additional notes, critical, explanatory, and practical by the Rev. William Symington, D.D. Glasgow. 3 vols. (complete)

      William Mackenzie Glasgow William Mackenzie nd (ca. 1845)g Large quarto. XXII, 708, 694, IV, 685, [2]pp. 3/4 leather over buckram, with gold lettering and decoration on spine, and gold-stamped borders on covers. Raised bands. All edges gilt. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Reverend Thomas Scott on first volume. All three title-pages are steel-engraved. This fascinating Bible with commentary edited by Rev. Thomas Scott had the largest circulation and sustained it through many years. As a commentary Dr. Scott's work was superior to any that had appeared before its time. Horne, usually a discriminating judge, speaks of it in high praise (cf. his Manual of Biblical Bibliography, London, 1839, p. 259). This work is profusely illustrated with numerous full-page steel-engravings, each one with its caption. Some edge wear on bindings with rubbing along joints, corners and head and tail of spines. Sporadic foxing/browning throughout. Bindings and interior in overall good+ to very good condition.

        Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition. During the Years 1838, 1839, 1840, 1841, 1842

      Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1845. 6 volumes (text: 5 volumes; atlas: 1 volume), imperial octavo signed in 4s. (11 x 7 inches). Text: 64 engraved plates, 8 double-page maps, numerous vignette illustrations (42 steel- engraved); Atlas: 5 folding maps (1 hand-coloured). Original cloth, covers elaborately panelled in blind around blocked central gilt vignettes, text volumes with flat spines blocked and lettered in gilt and blind, the atlas lettered in gilt (splits to joints of vols.I and II, spines chipped at head and foot, extremities rubbed, occasional light dampstaining, damage to edge of cloth on upper cover of vol.V). A fine unsophisticated set of the first regularly available trade edition of the official record of this ground-breaking expedition. The United States Exploring Expedition 'was the first American scientific expedition of any size, charged to "extend the bounds of Science and promote the acquisition of knowledge," and was one of the most ambitious Pacific expeditions ever attempted' (Forbes). The expedition represents 'the first governmental sponsorship of scientific endeavor and was instrumental in the nation's westward expansion. Specimens gathered by expedition scientists became the foundation collections of the Smithsonian Institution. Significant American contributions in the fields of geology, botany, conchology, anthropology, and linguistics came from the scientific work of the expedition. Wilkes's evaluations of his landfalls influenced later U.S. positions in those areas' (Dictionary of American Biography).'The chief fields of exploration in this expedition were the coast of the Antarctic continent, the islands of the Pacific Ocean, and the American northwest coast. In total some 280 islands in the Pacific and adjacent waters and 800 miles of streams and coasts in the Oregon country were surveyed, and 1,600 miles of the coast of Antarctica were charted. After leaving Hampton Roads in 1838, the expedition visited Madeira, the Cape Verde Islands, Brazil, Patagonia, the South Shetland Islands, Peter Island, Chile, and Peru, before proceeding to the Tuamotu or the low Archipelago, the Samoa Islands, and New South Wales. From Sydney, Wilkes sailed into the region now known as Wilkesland. He visited Tonga, the Fiji group, and the Hawaiian Islands in 1840, and in 1841 explored the west coast of North America. Much valuable information is given on the Columbia River, the Willamette Valley, Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Sacramento Valley, and the findings on the northwest coast of America proved timely in light of the dispute with Great Britain over the Oregon Territory. The Wilkes expedition also visited San Francisco bay and the Sacramento River. Crossing the Pacific, Wilkes called at the Philippine Islands, the Sulu Archipelago, Borneo, Singapore, and, rounding the Cape of Good Hope, finally reached New York in 1842, having sailed round the world' (Hill p.662).

        THE NATURALIST'S LIBRARY

      W. H. Lizars Edinburgh: W. H. Lizars, 1845. Second Edition. A Fine Copy of Jardine in Marvelous Morocco,Color-Coded To Reflect Various Animal Groups 165 x 105 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/8").40 volumes. VERY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY HALF MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, THE VOLUMES BOUND IN FOUR DIFFERENT COLORS TO REFLECT THE VARIOUS MEMBERS OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM (the 14 volumes on birds bound in red, the 13 volumes on mammals in dark green, the seven volumes on insects in dark blue, and the six volumes on fish in deep purple), all the volumes with gilt-decorated raised bands, spines uniformly gilt in compartments with lozenge centerpiece composed of drawer handle stamps and enclosing a small flower, the whole surrounded by triangular scrolling cornerpieces, marbled edges (sides and endpapers not uniform--by design: the mammals and fish with watered silk covers, the birds and insects with buckram; the mammals, fish, and insects with tartan endpapers, the birds with an unusual maze-like design). WITH A TOTAL OF 1,360 ZOOLOGICAL PLATES, INCLUDING 1,280 PLATES OF VARIOUS ANIMALS, ALL BUT A FEW HAND COLORED, along with 40 engraved frontispiece portraits of noted zoologists and 40 (mostly uncolored) engraved title pages, (one fish engraving mentioned in the list of plates, but apparently not issued, since no text relating to it appears), all but a very few of the engravings with original tissue guards. Front pastedowns with armorial bookplate of Edward Salvin Bowlby. Nissen 4708; Wood, pp. 405-06; Zimmer, p. 326. Just the most minor rubbing to leather extremities, slight chafing or soiling here and there to cloth boards, trivial imperfections internally, but AN EXTRAORDINARILY APPEALING SET IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the bindings especially bright, almost without wear, and most pleasing on the shelf, and the text remarkably smooth, clean, and fresh, with virtually no signs of use. This famous collection of writings on natural history and on naturalists, augmented by more than 1,300 (mostly colored) engravings, was issued in individual volumes from 1833-43; the present set is a very early reprint of the completed 40-volume work. The book's general editor, Jardine (1800-74), also wrote about a third of the volumes, mostly on birds and fish. Wood says that it is "a remarkable little library of early nineteenth-century zoology, as well as a brief account of the lives of the chief zoologists of all time." The plates here feature figures of animals that are fully colored against an uncolored background, an arrangement that makes the species under discussion stand out as more clearly delineated. Complete sets with all of the plates, like this one, are not so readily available as in the past. And because the attractive engravings have meant that the work has frequently been the victim of affectionate destruction, sets that are both clean internally and in contemporary bindings in excellent condition are especially rare. This is all the more true in the case of sets bound in attractive leather. The present copy is extraordinary because it still opens stiffly, indicating that it has experienced very little use, and because it is bound so distinctively: we have never seen this work--or any multi-volume work like it, for that matter--bound in such a way as to reflect its various sections of content with varying colors of leather (though compare how color is used to differentiate content in bindings described in items #2 and #9, above). Our set comes from the library of Victorian gentleman Edward Salvin Bowlby (1830-1902), a barrister who served as High Sheriff of Hertfordshire.

        Le Marchand d'Images [The Printseller]

      Paris: Lemercier, ca. 1845. Lithograph by Jacot after a painting by Guillemin. Printed on wove paper with thick wove backing for support. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, mild rippling and a few minor foxing marks in the margins. 18 1/8 x 13 3/8 inches. 19 x 14 1/4 inches. This charming print represents a print seller attempting to sell his wares to a middle-class couple in a domestic interior. Most likely having spotted the only print in the sparsely furnished room, a faded religious subject hung over the armoire, the vendor selects a small image of the Madonna and Child from his portfolio, which he thinks might interest his potential clients. During the nineteenth century, prints were extremely popular among members of the middle-class. They were an inexpensive and consequently affordable way for people to own reproductions of works of art. Lithographs, which were invented in the late eighteenth-century, were particularly popular. Produced through a relatively easy process, they were the ideal medium through which images could be widely disseminated. Lemercier was one of the most prominent printers and publishers of lithographs in nineteenth-century Paris.

        Halmaturus Dorsalis: Gray [Black-striped Wallaby]

      [London: by the Author, 1845-1863]. Hand-coloured lithograph by John Gould and H.C.Richter. Wove paper. 14 1/2 x 21 1/2 inches. An iconic image of a kangaroo family from John Gould's great folio work "The Mammals of Australia" Originally published in 13 parts between 1840 and 1863, Gould's work represents his only serious foray away from the world of birds and into that of mammals. The accuracy of the colouring and the beauty and accuracy of the plates mean that the work is still highly valued today. It represents one of the first concerted efforts to record the extraordinary fauna of Australia. Cf. Ferguson 10032; cf. Nissen ZBI 1661; cf. Sauer 14; cf. Wood p.365.

        Alphabet Gothique par Midolle

      N.p., (1845). Octavo. (26)ff. A manuscript alphabet book of calligraphic paintings, signed by the artist. Includes title page, twenty-four letters, and "Fin." A renowned nineteenth-century Swiss calligrapher and miniature-painter, Midolle executed his alphabets in the gothic style of lettering to resemble the text of a medieval manuscript, and often decorated his work elaborately. Although a leading figure in the field of chromolithography, Midolle also handcolored his work in the fashion of the miniature paintings found in fifteenth-century French illuminated books. Entirely hand drawn, Alphabet Gothique is executed in such a style, with each elaborately detailed letter rendered in bright colors that have retained their vibrancy to a remarkable degree. Multi-colored flowers, birds, and serpents are prevalent as compositional motifs, intertwined with the letters themselves. Bound in brown morocco with a cover design by noted American collector Cornelius Hauck. The design depicts an oak tree in brown and green morocco onlays. The tree is situated behind three arched and spired portals in gilt that suggest a cathedral. The spine also incorporates portions of the design. Gilt dentelles and silk endpapers complete this handsome binding, which is a fitting complement to the exquisite artwork inside. A.e.g. Very fine.
