        A History of the Royal Society, with Memoirs of the Presidents

      London: John Parker, 1848. Two volumes, large octavo, with plates and illustrations; a fine copy in later half calf, spines ornately gilt with double labels. The great history of the Royal Society. A handsome copy, finely bound, of the standard early history of the influential Royal Society. From its foundation in the seventeenth century to the present day it has been at the very centre of science in the widest sense. It is in fact the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. A remarkable line-up inventions and discoveries were first announced in presentations to the society, early momentous announcements ranging from Harvey&#39;s discovery of the circulation of blood, Wren&#39;s papers on the pendulum and Saturn, and Newton&#39;s telescope to Babbage&#39;s calculating machine. In fact the material on Babbage is significant enough for Jeremy Norman to have included Weld&#39;s book in his "Origins of Cyberspace" collection and bibliography. Weld&#39;s book tells the story of the first two centuries of the Society&#39;s history; inevitably there is much on Sir Joseph Banks, its most famous early President, whose position at the head of the Society epitomised his role as the great disseminator and pollinator in the sciences. There is considerable material on Captain Cook, including of course Pringle&#39;s famous delivery of his paper on scurvy discoveries, and on other voyagers showing to what extent the Society was involved with geographical discovery and the attendant scientific enquiries.

        Lady De Rothschild and Her Daughters 1821-1931

      London: John Murray. Hardcover. 354 pages. pages. Index. Black and white plates. Multi-panel fold-out family tree at back. "Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers.... The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface. Considerable wear and staining to blue cloth exterior. Gift greetings inside front board. Prior owner&#39;s name atop front free endpaper. Binding tender but intact. A worthy reference copy of this important work. . Fair. 1935. First Edition.

        Bernhard. Roman. Deutsch von (G.) Scherr. Erstes bis siebentes Bändchen in 1 Band

      Stuttgart, Franckh 1848 - Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Die Schriftstellerin George Sand (eigentl. Aurore Dupin,1804&#150;1876) kämpfte an der Seite der Revolutionäre 1848 für eine soziale Republik. Vorliegender berühmter Roman über Bernhard Mauprat, oder die Geschichte einer Liebe spielt im Distrikt Varenne; er erschien erstmals in der französischen Originalausgabe 1837. Andre Maurois nannte Mauprat »einen hervorragenden Mantel- und Degenroman«, und das ist er gewiß auch, aber vor allem ist er ein grandioser Entwicklungs- und Zeitroman, der das Ideal der Liebe in der Realität einfordert. An der Grenze zwischen den Marken und dem Berry, in der Varenne, lebt um die Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts das alte Landadelsgeschlecht der Mauprat. Der ältere Zweig haust mörderischen Räubern gleich auf der Stammburg, und der Großvater zwingt den Waisenknaben Bernard, in dieser Hölle heranzuwachsen, als Faustpfand für seine Erbansprüche. Die jüngere Linie der Mauprat, die in vornehmer Zurückgezogenheit unweit auf ihrem Landsitz lebt, hat zwar keinen männlichen Nachkommen, aber eine Tochter: Edmee de Mauprat, schön, gebildet, leidenschaftlich und mutig. Als sich die Siebzehnjährige bei einem Jagdausflug verirrt und auf die Stammburg verschleppt wird, begegnet sie Bernard, der sie vergewaltigen will. Aber dann beginnt die Geschichte einer Liebe, die erst nach vielen spannenden Irrungen und Wirrungen ihre Erfüllung finden wird. Es beginnen die Jahre der Erziehung, der Sozialisation für Bernard, eingebettet in die historischen Zeitläufte bis zur Großen Revolution, und um die Hauptfiguren des Romans gruppieren sich eindrucksvoll gezeichnete Charaktere: Patience, der bäuerliche Philosoph, Don Marcasse, der Maulwurfsfänger, und Abbe Aubert, ein jansenistischer Priester. - Romantisme littérature, première édition en allemand du roman de l'auteur féminin la plus célèbre de littérature française, dont le romantisme continue de bouleverser chaque génération. - Das belletrist. Ausland , 1162-1168. - Schönes Exemplar, nur gering stockfl.; aus fürstl. Bibliothek 247; 179 Seiten Marmor. Karton der Zeit mit blauem vergold. Rückenschild, Kl.8° [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Temple of Wady Kardassy, Nubia.

      Moon, F.G., London 1848 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        Map of Oregon and Upper California from the Surveys of John Charles Fremont and Other Authorities?

      Washington City: Senate of the United States, 1848. Rare. offwhite paper printed in black. Very, very faint browning at upper margin and lower left, left margin with minimal nicks. Old, archival tape repairs from backside in folds and corners of folds. An attractive map with no loss of paper. Approximately 71 x 90 cm. Lithographed by E. Weber & Company, Balt[imore]. The Mexican, Oregon Territory and British Possession borders hand coloured in green, the Pacific and some lakes in blue, and most rivers in red, all within a yellow border, much more colour on this map than is usual Scale 1:3,000,000. The northern and southers borders are outlined in green, as is the border between Oregon and California and the eastern boundary of the Rocky Mountains, the South Pass and Sierra Madre. At the top of the map is an elevation profile of the route from the South Pass to San Francisco. Both the Plumas and American Rivers show areas marked ? ?El Dorado? or Gold Region?. A landmark map deemed one of the most important in American history. Schwartz calls it an ?epochal? map and states, as do other authorities, that it is the ?Most accurate general map of the Far West for its time?. Underscoring its importance, Wheat devotes seven text pages and two illustrations to this fascinating map. Wheat notes that Fremont?s journals were burned after the expedition and the notes he did from 1845-46 were the most detailed ones he ever made. The Preuss map was the first to show the Mormon Zion settlement. It does place it at the northern shore of Utah Lake, which is wrong, however. It is also the first map to use the name ?Golden Gate? referring to San Francisco Bay. Furthermore, the map detailed much of the Great Basin and further west that had hitherto been a vast ?unknown?

        The miracles of our Lord

      London: Longman & Co.. 1848. "8vo, 15 leaves, chromolithographed throughout by Humphreys, plus 2 leaves of text (illuminator&#39;s remarks and a descriptive index of the miracles); extraordinarily well-preserved papier-mâché fancy strapwork boards incorporating the title and 6 oval portraits within a central panel, and made from a mold and adhered to paper card, sheep spine elaborately blindstamped to match and sandwiched between card and cover marbled endpapers, a.e.g.; a few very small cracks at extremities, else a fine example of this Victorian style of binding, and scarce thus as these bindings are susceptible to damage. This style of binding was first done by Humphreys in 1847 on his Parables of Our Lord, and was ""contrived to look like carved ebony &#133; the result was splendidly gothic and impressive &#133; the biggest triumph among all the ingenuities of Victorian commercial bookbinding &#133; Noel Humphreys&#39; illuminated books are rich and consistent examples of Victorian gothic design, and are among the best examples of chromolithography of the century. No lithographer is mentioned in any of them: but most of them were probably printed under the supervision of Owen Jones &#133; About eight [Levin says 12] different titles seem to have been bound in this style, of which three appeared in later editions"" (McLean, Victorian Book Design, see chapts. 10 and 17).

The books make extensive use of official records and other public documents and include numerous extracts from them, as well as providing interesting information about manners and customs. Agnes Strickland (1806-1874) was an English historical writer, specializing in biographical studies of British royalty. She began her literary career writing historical romances in verse, published while she was in her 20s. She then turned to authoring prose histories for young people. Then, with her sister¿s assistance, she undertook the ambitious project of producing The Lives of the Queens of England, which appeared over a period of several years beginning in 1840. In the meantime, she also edited the letters of Mary, Queen of Scots for publication in 1843. In addition to an abridged version of her Queens of England she also authored The Lives of the Queens of Scotland (eight volumes 1850-59), The Bachelor Kings of England (1861), The Lives of the Seven Bishops (1866) and Lives of the Last Four Stuart Princesses (1872). In 1871, she obtained a civil-list pension in recognition of her achievements. Condition: Generally very good, the interior contents having usual light overall toning and scattered foxing.

        SEVEN YEARS OF MY LIFE, OR A NARRATIVE OF A PATRIOT EXILE. WHO TOGETHER WITH EIGHTY-TWO AMERICAN CITIZENS WERE ILLEGALLY TRIED FOR REBELLION IN UPPER CANADA IN 1838, AND TRANSPORTED TO VAN DIEMAN&#39;S LAND

Very faint tideline throughout, minor foxing. Very good. In a cloth case, leather label. An exceptionally rare firsthand account of the Canada Rebellion of 1837-1838, and the experiences of an American participant who was imprisoned and sent to Tasmania. Marsh was one of eighty-two Americans convicted of aiding the Canadian rebels. Captured after the Battle of Prescott, he was detained at Toronto and Kingston before being sent to Van Diemen&#39;s Land. Sent aboard the British prison ship, Buffalo, he reached Hobart Town in February, 1840. Marsh was pardoned in 1845 and returned to Buffalo the next year. He describes in detail his imprisonment in Canada, the voyage to Tasmania, and the "cruel and unmerciful treatment during five years of unmitigated suffering on that detestable prison island." Also of interest is Marsh&#39;s description of Tasmania, its inhabitants and products. The illustration is a woodcut of the burning of the steamship Caroline.

        Flowers and Their Kindred Thoughts

      Longman & Co., London 1848 - A beautiful volume that has the double benefit of an Owen Jones Relievo binding and 15 full page chromolithographic plates (including decorated Colophon page), also by Owen. To start with the binding: Designed by Owen Jones and bound by Remnant Edmonds & Remnants. There are bevelled boards where the bevels are blocked with a curling stem and leaf decoration and the boards (front and rear) are thick with ivy leaves, berries and twigs blocked in blind and relief. The title to the front board is in gothic lettering based upon twigs. Gilt inside dentilles. Gilt edges. The front and rear end papers are on thick textured paper and have a gilt ivy / leaf / berry pattern. printed on upper endpaper verso, at the tail is: ' Bound by Remnant Edmonds & Remnants'. The interior presents 14 superb full page chromolithographic flowers, each associated with an attribute which is described in gilt gothic lettering on the opposite page (e.g. Snowdrop for hope, Primrose for innocence, Rose for love). The lithography is by E. L. Bateman. The overall condition of this volume is very good. Specific condition: There is some slight staining and scuffing to the outer boards (see photo). The front and rear hinges have been reinforced with a neat brown tape strip. There are one or two minor brown spots. This book has a gutta percha binding and quite thick heavy pages - this combination means that some of the pages are loose and pulling away. There is a contents page but no title page present. Some additional background information that you may find of interest: Owen Jones worked for Thomas De La Rue on playing card design, and many of the chromolithograph flower illustrations in this book are to me reminiscent of his work on playing cards for De La Rue. Jones is best known as an interior and pattern designer although he was also an architect. He was superintendent of works at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and designer of the Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Alhambra Courts at Crystal Palace after its move to Sydenham in 1854. Together with Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt, Jones produced the vastly influential Grammar of Ornament in 1856. Leake's patented "Relievo" bindings, made of heavily molded and embossed leather left to its natural color, are usually associated with the English designer Owen Jones. Like papier-mâché bindings, "Relievo" bindings recall both medieval bindings and wood carvings and often occur on ecclesiastical books. The English trade binders Remnant & Edmonds were responsible for many known examples of "Relievo" work, winning a prize for them at the Great Exhibition of 1851. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.

      - Raymond Dabb Yelland (1848-1900) &#147;Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.&#148; Signed &#147;R.D. Yelland&#148; lower left Inscribed with title reverse (before restoration) 1890 Oil on canvas 21 ¼&#148; x 13 ¼&#148;; 32&#148; x 24&#148; framed Provenance: Artist's estate to Mrs. E.D.V. Gould; to Mrs. Taylor; to her grandson, private collection, Longview, Washington. During the 1880s, a number of well-trained and widely traveled landscape painters settled permanently in the San Francisco Bay area. These artists adopted a loose and expressive brushwork style in their views of California landscapes, influenced by the Impressionistic style that was gaining popularity in Europe. Raymond Dabb Yelland, known as a distinguished artist and dedicated art instructor, was one of the stalwarts of the San Francisco art world. Born in England, his family brought him to America at age three. He studied at the country&#146;s leading art institute, the prestigious National Academy of Design in New York City. In 1874, at the age of 25, he moved to Oakland, California as a professor of drawing and painting at Mills College. He quickly gained a fine reputation as a teacher, and later assumed additional academic positions in the Bay area, including assistant directorship of the San Francisco Art Association, founded in 1871, and the directorship of the California School of Design. A beloved teacher, he was a decisive influence on a younger generation of California artists. Among the many who worked with him directly were Gottardo Piazzoni, Grace Carpenter Hudson and James Everett Stuart. Yelland was trained as a technically adept painter of the academic tradition of realism. He excelled with paintings in the American &#147;luminist&#148; mode, portraying quiet stretches of water and sky bathed in the delicate light of early evening. Yelland&#146;s works are the best west coast examples of this style developed in the east by Kensett, Gifford, Bricher and Silva. The meticulous realism captured in paintings of this mode was created through tiny brushstrokes that obliterate any sense of an artist&#146;s hand at work. Yelland is best known for his coastal scenes at sunset, but often visited and painted views in the Monterey area. In 1886, Yelland went to Paris to exhibit in the Salon. It appears that both the French Impressionists, whom were having their eighth and final exhibition in Paris that year, and the French Barbizon painters, known for their impressionistically painted landscapes, influenced Yelland. This particular painting has a painterly style that is reminiscent of Pissaro and Monet. And, one of the Barbizon painters&#146; favorite subjects was the wood interior, portraying ancient trails through the oaks in the Forest of Fontainebleau near the village of Barbizon. Yelland&#146;s painting takes this fashionable subject of the woodlands, and adapts it to California, capturing the majestic beauty of the redwood forests in Santa Cruz mountains south of San Francisco. Yelland has created a pleasing harmony of warm tones in matching the orange tints of the foreground earth to the bark of the giant trees. This painting was most likely completed in 1890, when other Yelland paintings of Santa Cruz subjects were exhibited at the San Francisco Art Association. Incidentally, Yelland&#146;s work was also included in a special &#147;California Artist&#148; exhibition, which was part of the California Midwinter International Fair of 1894, held in San Francisco&#146;s Golden Gate Park.

        View from under the Portico of the Temple of Denera

      Moon, F.G., London 1848 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot. 1846-9. Abbey, Travel, 272; Gay 2216; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, p.176; Lipperheide 1591; Tooley (1954) 402.
