        Plate CI The Jaguar. (Felis Onca, Linn) The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

      Audubon J.J., Philadelphia 1846 - Plate CI (101). Felis Onca, Linn. The Jaguar. Original and rare hand-colored lithograph (21 x 27 inches, 533.4 x 686.8 mm) by JT Bowen after painting by John James Audubon, FRS, FLS for the Imperial Folio Edition of the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. This Jaguar is in Very Fine condition with bright and rich original hand-coloring, the brightest we have seen to date. Expertly custom framed in conservation materials, as shown, by Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books, ABAA, ILAB. Framed size is 36 x 31 inches, 914 x 787.4 mm. The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (Philadelphia c.1845-48) represents the culmination of a lifelong dream held by America's most prominent naturalist and visionary, John James Audubon (1785-1851). Following the completion of his magnum opus, the Double Elephant Folio Edition of Birds of America, c. 1824-38, Audubon was at liberty to pursue a project close to his heart, large scale portraits of all of North America's native animals. Audubon's effort to render America four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals in their natural settings pioneered the way for an entire culture of naturalist artists and engravers. Once the animals were placed within their native habitat, inspired by Audubon's classical composition and watchful eye, most subsequent naturalist painters rarely presented animals and birds void of a full botanical perch, landscaped setting, or woodland background. Very few, if any naturalist artists returned to the solo vignette so commonly found in most natural history works from the previous three centuries. Audubon's dream to complete this monumental work was made manifest through the artistic and clerical assistance of his two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford, as well as the Reverend John Bachman, who contributed the excellent text for the production.Today, the tale of Audubon's westward journey to hunt and gather skins and specimens and thus inspiration to complete the 155 paintings for the Quadrupeds is common enough. The story of how he sold his work through subscription format and created a smaller (Royal Octavo Edition) as a more democratic and affordable option to the production has been told religiously, and in great detail, by anyone reviewing these masterpieces once again. Yet through these critiques, America's premier ornithologist, painter and naturalist has gained his rightful place among the masters of Animal Portraiture, painters like Edwin Landseer and George Stubbs.Regardless of any criticism his artistic practices and personal affairs may have encountered, Audubon's legacy has enriched our understanding and appreciation of America's native species, both birds and animals. In addition, through Audubon's paintings we are offered the very first glimpses of the American landscape west of the Mississippi, as his work predates that of the Hudson River Artists. Although Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books has featured the monumental edition of Audubon's work since 1989, this new collection of plates is the strongest body of mammals we have has the good fortune to acquire. These plates have not seen the light of day, thus the coloring of each of the plates is strong and rich, hand-painted with a multitude of subtle colors which are often lost to fading. In a word, these prints are the finest Audubon animals available, and must been seen. (Blum, Picturing Nature, Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1993. Sabin 2367, Wood 208). Fine with rich original hand-coloring.

      Ritchie & Heiss, Printers, 1846., 1846. First edition. 8vo. Senate document 161, 29th Congress, 1st Session, February 24, 1846. Hardcover binder, titles stamped in gold gilt on front cover, 10 pp., large folding map of the proposal at the rear. Whitney is requesting a grant of land sixty miles in width from Lake Michigan to the Pacific Ocean,"to be held and set apart expressly to furnish, by sale and settlement, means to construct a railroad to communicate with the two points; and after the full and perfect completion of said work, should there be any lands remaining, your memorialist asked them for himself, his heirs, and assigns, as a reward for the work." The folding map is a map of the United States that shows railroads finished, railroads unfinished, and proposed railroads. Asa Whitney (1797-1872) was in the mercantile business in New York City and "recognized the necessity of a railroad to the Pacific, and was the first to suggest its feasibility, and from 1846 till 1850 urged it upon congress, the legislature of several states, and the public, by personal influence and his writings. He was finally instrumental in securing appropriations in 1853 for the first surveys of the northern, southern, and middle routes, and lived to see communication opened from sea to sea in 1869." ... Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography. Both map and the text are in fine condition.

        Narrative of the Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains, in the year 1842, and to Oregon and North Carolina, in the years 1843-44.

      London: Wiley and Putnam, 1846. - 8vo., (9 x 5 ¾ inches). Fine folding lithographed "Map of the Western and Middle Portions of North America, to Illustrate 'The History of California, Oregon and the Other Countries. On the North West Coast of America' by Robert Greenhow" (one or two short tears at the margins; slight spotting); lithographed frontispiece "The American Falls of Lewis Fork"; 3 lithographed plates (some spotting, pale stain). Later half morocco, cloth boards, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, gilt-lettered in two, gilt florets in the rest (hinge starting, a bit rubbed). First English edition, first published in the United States the same year. The plates, all by Day & Haghe, are different from those included in other issues: "Hill of Columnar Basalt on the Columbia River"; "Devil's Gate"; and "The Pyramid Lake." This British edition of Fremont, which adds a preface discussing the Oregon dispute, is printed on much better paper than the U.S. editions and the plates were created by one of the prominent lithographic firms in nineteenth-century England, William Day & Louis Haghe, Lithographers to the Queen (Tooley). "John C. Fremont's Report of the Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains and to Oregon and California can only be described as one of the monumental works of Western Exploration and became the vade mecum of Manifest Destiny. Its words, maps, and pictures paved the way for future waves of overlands culminating in the flood tide of the Gold Rush" (Wheat).

        Memoirs of the Lady Hester Stanhope, as Related by Herself in Conversation with her Physician [with] Travels of Lady Hester Stanhope, Forming the Completion of Her Memoirs [Six Volumes]

      London: Henry Colburn, 1846. Hardcover. Very good. Six volumes uniformly bound in half-leather with marbled boards. 5" x 8". Corners and edges rubbed and scuffed, spines sunned. Bookplate of Walter Neilson (Scottish locomotive engineer, 1819-1890) on each front pastedown. All bindings sound and contents clean and complete. Memoirs: pp. xi, 394; vi 384; vii 361, with frontis illustration in each (colored in Vol. I), old stamp erasure on title pages. Travels: pp. xix 372; ix 400; viii 422; frontis illustration in each, each title page trimmed about .5" smaller than the rest of the volume. Lady Stanhope (1776-1839) was a rather eccentric British aristocrat who grew bored with life at home and began traveling in 1810. She spent a few months in Malta, then a year in Constantinople, before moving on to tour Syria and the Holy Land. "She travelled in style, made lavish gifts to pashas and others in authority, and arrogated to herself the right to do very much as she pleased. She was warned that when she reached 'fanatical' Damascus she must wear a veil and conform to convention in other ways, but this she refused to do. Unveiled, tall, and impressive in her Turkish male clothes she entered the city on horseback and made a great sensation" (DNB). A few months later, she became the first European woman to visit Palmyra. Eventually she moved herself and her entourage to a remote monastery in Lebanon, where she lived out her days under increasingly impoverished conditions. During much of this time, she was accompanied by her physician, Charles Meryon, to whom she enthusiastically recounted her life story, which he published soon after her death.

        The Adventures of Oliver Twist; Or, The Parish Boy's Progress

      London, Bradbury and Evans. 1846, 1846. FIRST EDITION in one volume, also first octavo edition. With twenty four steel engravings by Cruikshank (re-touched for this edition by Findlay). Bound in contemporary half burgundy morocco over marbled boards. Titled and decorated in gilt to spine. Minor edgewear and scuffing, chipping to top edges of boards, some loss of paper to extremtities. Strong, sound and handsome, very good. All edges marbled. Marbled enpapers, with pasted in auction record to front pastedown. One gathering a little proud. Minimal toning and foxing to plates, some darkening to the edges of the plates. All in all a clean, tidy copy. Dickens' classic second novel, published one year after 'The Pickwick Papers', which publicised the various hypocrisies and contemporary social evils, including the workhouse, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals. Filled to the brim with the archetypal circus of Dickensian excesses; vicious thieves, ladies of negotiable virtue with hearts of gold, plucky urchins, cringeworthy Jewish gentlemen and undoubtedly a jolly fat person somewhere. Beautifully written, and beneath the pantomime, probably not such an inaccurate depiction of social realities in the age of empire. Gimbel Collection [A38], Grolier Club Catalogue [72].
