Thackeray envied him his powers of observation, while William Morris considered him 'a master of life' and ranked him with Dickens. In The Analysis of the Hunting Field, Surtees offers wry, fatherly advice in this satiric romp through the key archetypes of the fox hunt. As Lord Denham says in his introduction, "this should be required reading for anyone connected with hunting. From the right sort of Master to the wrong sort, from the hunting nobleman to the whip and from the blacksmith to the braggart with horses to sell we find the people 'pon the ?'orses are much the same as today."?"More people are flattered into virtue than were ever bullied out of vice?" (Surtees, Analysis of the Hunting Field).Tooley 470; Siltzer, p. 73; Podeschi 177; Schwerdt II p.232.

        PART OF THE PORTICO OF EDFOU [An Excellent View of the Temple's Famous Northern Portico; Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1846 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a single folio sheet 24" x 17", the captioned image, is 20" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an especially attractive plate showing the northern portico of one of the best preserved temples in Egypt at a time when most of the portico was still buried beneath shifting desert sand. Three winged sun disc are visible above the opening, the lower of which is brightly painted. The temple, dedicated to the falcon god Horus, was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BC. A group of brightly dressed visitors, appearing tiny between the massive columns lend an excellent sense of scale to this fine image. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

The first edition was published in 1687. Frontispiece portrait taken from the bust in the Royal Observatory of Greenwich, diagrams in text. 8vo. Original green cloth.

Frontispiece portrait taken from the bust in the Royal Observatory of Greenwich, diagrams in text. 8vo. The first English edition of Newton's "Principia" was translated by Andrew Motte, a mathematician, who with his brother Benjamin, the publisher, had edited the abridged "Philosophical transactions." This first English edition was published in 1729 from the third and definitive Latin edition of 1726. Newton's "A Treatise of the System of the World" was first published in English in 1728. The American edition bears a dedication and an introduction directed to teachers, "If to educate means, not so much to store the memory with symbols and facts, as to bring forth the faculties of the soul and to develope them to the full by healthy nurture and a hardy discipline, then, what so effective to the accomplishment of that end as the study of Geometrical Synthesis? ... Let the Principia then, be gladly welcomed into every Hall where a True Teacher presides." "The greatest work in the history of science ... the "Principia" provided the great systhesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity ... for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens" (PMM).

        Reglamento de la Direccion de Colonizacion

      México: Imprenta del Aguila, 1846. First edition. Contemporary calf. A very good copy, boards lightly scuffed, some faded ink spots on title page, small bookplate on front pastedown.. 22 pp. José María Lafragua (1813-1881) was put in charge of the newly reorganized Department of Colonization in late November 1846 and issued these regulations in early December (while his counterpart, Ambassador José María Luis Mora was in London trying to encourage European immigration). Prices were set at a minimum of 4 reales an acre, except for those of Baja California, where they would have a price of 2 reales. The land will be put up at auction at the price and on the conditions established by the decree. The purchaser was bound to settle the land with at least two families, of five individuals each, per square mile, within the space of two years. The new foreign settlers were to be considered as citizens of the republic from their arrival in the colony. Most important was paragraph 382, which attempted to guard against further incursion by the United States or Texas. "Who may not be Colonists.-1. That none of the colonists who may be introduced therein shall be a subject or native of or come from a nation whose territory lies contiguous to the lands which are to be granted, nor of a power with which the republic may be at war, save in the cases in which the government may make exceptions for special reasons and motives." This was followed by a prohibition of slavery. As Streeter noted "[T]hese regulations, which were promulgated December 4, 1846, nominally prevailed in California at the time." The issue of colonization would become even more important after the defeat suffered by the Mexican army by the U.S. in 1847. OCLC locates ten copies: Huntington, LA Law, Berkeley, Yale, Princeton, Brigham Young, Univ. Houston, Texas at Austin, Texas at Arlington, and BN Mexico. Provenance: A. Salazar (bookplate).

        Modern Painters

      London: Smith, Elder & Co,, 1846?-60. 5 volumes, quarto (245 x 165 mm). Finely bound by Ramage in red full morocco, spine gilt in compartments with gilt titles direct, triple fillet gilt panel to boards, triple rules to boards, turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Steel-engraved frontispieces to Volumes 3, 4 and 5, 84 steel-engraved plates, including one with hand colouring, many by the author, 8 separate plates of wood engravings and others in the text. Light sporadic foxing to contents, the occasional small ink mark. An excellent set in strikingly bright bindings. Presentation set, with autograph slips pasted onto the half-title or title page of three volumes, the one in Volume 5 being in the author's hand, the other two in a secretarial hand. Volume 1 is the third edition revised, the first edition to include Ruskin's open criticism of Turner's contemporaries, all others are first editions. When the first volume was originally published, in 1843, Ruskin "stopped short of criticising Turner's contemporaries, who worked in the convention of the picturesque. These were Ruskin's teachers, and his father's friends. It was not until the third edition (...) that blame was substituted for praise" (ODNB). All slips are addressed to a Richard Gray, a name which appears in Timothy Hilton's biography for a Scottish neighbour of the teenage Ruskin in Herne Hill. With a bibliographical note loosely inserted.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "F Liszt"

      1 page (ca. 122 x 193 mm.). Undated. Notated and signed in black ink on paper with 6 staves drawn with rastrum. 4 measures from Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody no. 4 in E-flat major, notated on piano staff. In 2/4, with a key signature of three flats, with "Andantino" at head. With significant differences from the first (and subsequent) editions. Browned; creased at central fold; several professional repairs with Japanese paper minimally affecting notation. . The fourth Hungarian Rhapsody for piano was composed between 1846-1853 and is dedicated to Count Casimir Eszterházy. It was first published in Vienna in 1853 by Haslinger. Liszt renewed his contact with gypsy music and Hungarian folk music [in 1840]. He visited a gypsy encampment and wrote a vivid description of what he observed (Gesammelte Schriften, vi, 135?-7); he also heard a number of the best gypsy bands, and was inspired to produce a series of pieces called Magyar dallok (?'Hungarian National Melodies?'). These compositions were later revised and published under the generic title ?'Hungarian Rhapsodies?' (1851?-3). They contain colourful evocations of gypsy bands... The ?'gypsy scale?' is also in evidence, with its mournful augmented 2nds... Liszt has been maligned for mistaking some of the music played by gypsies (containing popular melodies of the day) for genuine Hungarian folksongs; his book Des bohémiens (1859) further clouded the issue, made him some prominent enemies in his homeland and caused the rhapsodies themselves to fall into disrepute. In 1840 there was general confusion even within Hungary itself as to what constituted gypsy as opposed to Hungarian music. Modern scholarship has revealed that Liszt did indeed incorporate genuine Magyar folk melodies into his rhapsodies, albeit ones he heard filtered through gypsy improvisations." Alan Walker et al in Grove Music Online.

        Autograph letter signed "J. Belval" to unidentified correspondent

      - Belval, a French bass, "studied at the Paris Conservatoire and made his début in 1846 at Antwerp. After singing in Toulouse, Lyons, the Hague, Ghent and Brussels, he was engaged at the Paris Opéra, making his début in 1855 as Marcel in Les Huguenots. His roles included Bertram (Robert le diable), Balthazar (La favorite), Walter Furst (Guillaume Tell) and Zaccharie (Le prophéte). He took part in many premiéres and created Gargantua in Labarre’s Pantagruel (1855), the Count of Poitou in Halévy’s La magicienne (1858), Soloman in Gounod’s La reine de Saba (1862), Archbishop Turpin in Mermet’s Roland à Roncevaux (1864), Don Pédro in L’Africaine (1865) and King Claudius in Thomas’ Hamlet (1868). he made his last appearance at the Opéra in 1875 as Cardinal Brogni in La Juive, at the public inauguration of the Palais Garnier. His voice was a deep bass, ample in size and dark in tone." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove online.The Verdi opera to which Belval refers is probably Don Carlos, which premiered at the Paris Opéra on March 11, 1867. Louis-Henri Obin, Pauline Guéymard-Lauters, and Armand Castelmary created, respectively, the roles of Philip II, Eboli, and the monk (Charles V) for the first performance. 3 pp. of a bifolium. 12mo. Dated Neuilly, Sunday, March 3 [1867?]. In black ink on personal stationery with embossed monogram printed in green at head. In French (with translation).An interesting letter in which Belval mentions no fewer than three important composers (Giuseppe Verdi, Félicien David, Hector Berlioz), three singers associated with the Paris Opéra (Louis-Henri Obin, Armand Castelmary, and Pauline Guéymard-Lauters), and the premiere of a new Verdi opera. Because Belval had the flu, he was unable to sing Bertram in a recent performance of Meyerbeer's Robert le Diable; Castelmary, a bass "of the third rank," had to replace him. Belval will sing Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots the following day. He has also asked Guéymard-Lauters to secure two seats for his correspondent for the first performance of Verdi's opera, because he has heard, via Obin, that the composer does not want a public dress rehearsal. Finally, he wishes to enlist the expertise of David and Berlioz regarding some musical matter."My friend Obin told me in effect that Verdi did not wish to hear talk of a dress rehearsal before the public, even a chosen one. But it has been twelve years that I have heard the same alarms with regard to every new opera. Therefore do not despair yet. I have asked Madame Gueymard to get herself signed up for two numbered seats at the theatre for the first performance. They are intended for you, in case the public is not admitted to the dress rehearsal. In principal, the choice of two composers as experts would only reassure me by half, if I had not myself influenced Mr. Félicien David to decide to accept the task, and if in time Mr. Berlioz, to whom I recounted the affair, did not agree with me. Obin went to speak to them both; he could enlighten them much better than I about the disproportion of the two roles. "Slightly worn; creased at folds. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
