        Specimens of the Geometrical Mosaic of the Middle Ages. With a brief historical notice of the art founded on papers read before the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Society of Arts and the Archaeological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland.

      For the Proprietor, 17 Gate St., London 1848 - 1848 Tall folio, 19 x 13 inches (48.25 x 33 cm). 26 p, plus 21 color plates (including title page). Original boards rebacked with recent dark brown leather, with gilt rule and title on spine. With a sheaf of 12 original contemporary hand-drawn watercolor mosaic designs and notation, each protected with tissue guard and likely executed by the original owner whose note is mounted on the front pastedown. The note reads, "Please take great care of this book and of the loose copies of mosaic designs. J. M. Ivery", dated 1899. The volume has gone through repair, with Japanese paper reinforcements to many of the foredges of the text pages, likely accomplished by the binder who rebacked the volume, with evidence of earlier taping still evident in places. The plates are primarily untouched, having been printed on sturdier stock. There appears to be old waterstaing to the boards, though the contents remain unmarked. Crease to the lower corner of the front board. Despite its wear, the copy remains in good+ condition, with the exquisite color lithograph plates still bright and clean, text legible and intact. A very scarce document of medieval ornament and decoration. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.

      - Raymond Dabb Yelland (1848-1900) “Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.” Signed “R.D. Yelland” lower left Inscribed with title reverse (before restoration) 1890 Oil on canvas 21 ¼” x 13 ¼”; 32” x 24” 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’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 “luminist” mode, portraying quiet stretches of water and sky bathed in the delicate light of early evening. Yelland’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’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’ favorite subjects was the wood interior, portraying ancient trails through the oaks in the Forest of Fontainebleau near the village of Barbizon. Yelland’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’s work was also included in a special “California Artist” exhibition, which was part of the California Midwinter International Fair of 1894, held in San Francisco’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.

        Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Cairo. December 1st, 1848.

      London. 1848 - Size: 425 × 610 mm. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Tinted lithograph with additional colour. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. 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.

        Opp. 4, 13, 15, 29, 30 45]. Collection of 12 string quartets in parts in first and early editions, [Subtitle]: as follows:

      - "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled "Quatuor brillant"), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments. At its most baneful, Spohr's virtuosity induced him to slip into predictable passage-work in the linking sections between the main tonal centres of his sonata form movement. There are, however, many examples of brilliance without vapidity in these works and his imagination seems particularly to have been stimulated by less usual combinations."

        Loss and Gain

      London: James Burns, 17 Portman Street, Portman Square, 1848. First edition. 12mo. 386 pp. Bound without terminal leaf of publisher's ads. Modern half cloth and green marbled boards, retaining an earlier morocco spine label; marbled edges. Name cut from top margin of title page, another removed from title with ink eradicator. Very good copy of a rare book. Sadleir 1825; Wolff 5096 "a very rare book"; Wolff, Gains and Losses, pp. 43-60 . The first work of prose fiction by the noted theologian, John Henry Newman (1801-1890), whose conversion to Catholicism in 1845 shook the Anglican church. A thinly disguised account of his conversion, Loss and Gain is the most important English religious novel of the nineteenth century and a key document in the history of the Oxford movement. It was widely reprinted and a subtitle was added in the later editions. Newman was made a Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879 "Newman himself was in the process of publishing (anonymously) his first novel, Loss and Gain: the Story of a Convert. The book is partly autobiographical ... The inconsistencies of the comprehensiveness of the Church of England and of Anglo-Catholicism are amusingly satirized in what are probably the most memorable parts of a novel of which the chief claim to originality lies in the introduction of a new kind of introspective self-questioning into English fiction (see K. Tillotson, Novels of the Eighteen-Forties, 1954). ... the most significant Roman Catholic theologian of the nineteenth century, [Newman] has also come to be seen as the most seminal of modern Catholic thinkers" (ONDB). Wolff writes, "it remains extraordinarily significant ... Newman's novels ... delighted his peers. But unquestionably they were too subtle, too intellectual, too profound, then as now." "By common consent, and in the considered opinion of Gerard Manley Hopkins and James Joyce, Newman was the greatest Victorian master of English prose," writes Anthony Kenny in this week's TLS (30 July 2010), where he reviews a recent biography, Newman's Unquiet Grave by John Cornwell, and considers the projected visit to England by Pope Benedict XVI for "the beatification (a last staging post on the path to sainthood) of John Henry Newman in September". The issues includes a second extensive article by Bernard Manzo, "The test of literature, John Henry Newman's holy imaginings", discussing Cardinal Newman's poems, two novels and essays. Rare

        Evangeline, a Tale of Acadie. Sixth Edition.

      Boston: William D. Ticknor & Company, 1848 - Duodecimo. Original dun cloth, title gilt to spine, large gilt floral wreath to the centre of both boards contained within blind panelling, cream surface paper endpapers. A little rubbed, head and tail of the spine chipped, short split at the head of the upper joint, hinges a little cracked, light toning, but overall very good. Sixth edition, one year after the first. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "Sarah Butler from her friend, Fanny [Kemble,] December 25th/'45," and with the Butler Place bookplate to the front pastedown. Sarah was Fanny Kemble's elder daughter, named for her aunt, the great tragedienne Sarah Siddons. When Kemble's abolitionism forced her separation from her plantation-owning husband Pierce Butler, her daughters remained in his custody. In 1848 she was touring England, in an attempt to rehabilitate her career, when she was " summoned to America, where her husband filed divorce proceedings on the grounds of desertion; batteries of expensive lawyers were hired on both sides, but Butler finally agreed to a settlement without the formality of a trial, to prevent revelation of evidence extremely embarrassing to him. It was a long and bitter divorce, but it was settled with surface amicability; Fanny was to have $2500 a year and access to the children, who were to live with their father. Butler tried every stratagem to keep from fulfilling the conditions, to the extreme pain of Fanny, who resumed her maiden name." (ODNB) An extremely emotive piece; a Christmas gift, inscribed in the midst of a highly-contested divorce, by a mother to her 13 year-old daughter, "her friend." A number of passages have been marked in the margins in pencil, including these lines; "Talk not of wasted affection, affection was never wasted;/ If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning/ Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment " [Attributes: First Edition]

        MITCHELL'S NATIONAL MAP OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC OR UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA. TOGETHER WITH MAPS OF THE VICINITIES OF THIRTY-TWO OF THE PRINCIPAL CITIES AND TOWNS IN THE UNION.

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, . 1848 - Wall map, 39 x 49 inches, full period color. Surrounded by thirty-two small maps of individual American cities. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in maroon cloth, on contemporary rollers. Some creasing, toning, and staining, but overall in very good condition. The fifth edition of an important wall map of the United States, following editions of 1843, 1844, 1845, and 1846. Along with thirty-two small maps of individual American cities, there are two important additional inset maps, which appeared first in the 1846 version: "Map of Oregon Territory" (shown encompassing Oregon and Washington) and "Map of the State of Texas." The change in the Oregon Territory inset is significant, in that the inset on the 1846 edition showed Oregon going north into Canada, while the present inset shows Oregon Territory constrained by the boundaries of the Treaty of 1846. Texas includes virtually all of present-day New Mexico. Another two additional inset maps ("Map of the North- Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" showing the Maine-Canada boundary, and "Map of the Southern part of Florida") are carried over from earlier versions of the map. There are also two population tables. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Due to the tremendous territorial growth west of the 95th meridian brought about by the Mexican War (1846-48), the map was discontinued after 1850. The map, engraved by J.H. Brightly, also appeared at least once (1843) in a pocket map format, with the thirty-two town plans on a separate sheet. Not in Phillips' MAPS, which lists the 1843 edition. The present map is significantly different in size than the 1848 Mitchell wall map described in Rumsey 2300. An important map showing territorial gains made in the Mexican War.
