        Cosmos: A sketch of a physical description of the universe

      London: Henry G. Bohn 8vo (18.8 cm, 7.4"). 5 vols. I: Frontis., xvii, [1], ix, [1], 369, [3], 18, 40 (adv.) pp. II: xxi, 370–742, 16 pp. III: [6], 289, [1], 8, 32 (adv.) pp. IV: xv, [1], 291–601, [1], 7, [1], 32 (adv.) pp. V: viii, 500 pp.. 1849–58 Early edition of this ambitious translation, done by Elise C. Otté (with assistance from Benjamin Horatio Paul and William Sweetland Dallas for vols. 4 and 5, respectively) and first published in 1845 through 1848, with this edition being part of the "Bohn's Scientific Library" series. The work was written by German naturalist, explorer, and diplomat Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt, famed for his scientific observations of Latin America as well as for the present, groundbreaking overview of natural science. Humboldt's exploits and writings served as an inspiration for countless other scientists (including Charles Darwin), and his encyclopedic approach to describing our world as a whole, in terms of all of its natural phenomena, helped launch science's ongoing search for the unifying principles of the universe. This translation caused a bit of controversy: Tipped in at the front of vol. I is a printed rebuttal by Bohn of accusations made by the publisher of a rival translation by Mrs. Sabine, regarding the accuracy of Otté's work — which Bohn defends, of course. Publisher's embossed red cloth, spine with gilt-stamped title and series identification; spines sunned with heads and feet pulled (in one instance chipped), corners bumped, cloth with spots of minor discoloration; vol. V with binding darkened overall and cloth starting at heads of joints. Married set: Vols. I–IV each with institutional bookplate on front pastedown; vol. V from another set, with a different bookplate. Vols. I–IV institutionally rubber-stamped on front free endpapers and title-pages. Many signatures unopened in vols. I–IV; sewing starting to loosen in vol. V.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM EMIGRANT FRED SNYDER TO HIS BROTHER JOHN WHILE EN ROUTE ON THE OREGON TRAIL].

      Near Fort Kearny, Nb. May 9, 1849. - [1]p. plus integral address leaf, addressed on verso. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Moderate soiling and dampstaining, primarily to second leaf. Small paper loss to a few folds, affecting a few words of text. Still, quite legible. Good. Written from the banks of the Platte River in Nebraska, this letter typifies correspondence sent home from the Oregon Trail, reporting on game, grass, Indian encounters, and deaths on the Trail. Given the date and the destination, it is possible that Fred Snyder was a Forty-Niner, headed West to the California gold fields. He writes: "I have just time to inform you that we have travelled about 310 miles from St. Joseph and 800 from St. Louis and are now encamped upon the Platte River between Fort Kearney and Fort Laramie. We are now within 16 days travel from the latter fort. Game is abundant but the grass is poor. I shall take every opportunity to write to you, but I have not heard a word from home since I left nor do I expect to until my arrival in California. Do not forget to direct letters for me to San Francisco by the way of Chagres & Panama. We meet Indians every day and are now in the Paunee country. By tomorrow we shall be among the Sioux. Nicholas Boismenue of Cahokia accidentally shot himself a few days ago and died immediately. He was buried on the Big Blue River. Regards to all." Until the Panama railway was completed in 1855, Chagres, Panama, was the main port of call for travelers who took the sea voyage to California, landing at Chagres and then traversing the Isthmus before boarding a vessel on the other side. A nice letter, illustrative of the emigrant experience on the Oregon Trail.

Publicaba obras clásicas de la literatura española y traducciones de obras extranjeras. Además contenía secciones sobre crítica literaria, teatro, música, y en los últimos números encontramos pasatiempos como el ajedrez. Fernández de los Ríos en La Ilustración no dejó de hacer periodismo de opinión, defendiendo las ideas del partido progresista y atacando los principios tradicionales, que impedían la modernización política del país).

        Noyesism Unveiled: A History of the Sect Self-Styled Perfectionist s; with a Summary View of their Leading Doctrines

      Brattleboro: by the Author, 1849. Octavo, some browning, a fine copy in blind-stamped publisher's cloth, gilt title on spine. First edition: a lurid denunciation of John Humphrey Noyes's famous American utopian community at Putney.Noyes was the charismatic founder of the 'Perfectionist' community in Putney Vermont. Already suspect to Church authorities, Noyes's belief that the Second Coming had taken place was controversial, and his rejection of monogamy in favour of a rigorously controlled 'complex' of marriages, infamous.Noyesism Unveiled, by the otherwise unknown writer Hubbard Eastman, resident of Putney, was one of the key texts designed, as Eastman admitted with alliterative elan, to 'exhibit the pernicious principles propagated by Mr. Noyes and his coadjutors.' Indeed, the outraged locals did compel the Perfectionists to move, which led to the founding of the famous community in Oneida, New York. Oneida flourished for over thirty years, and although it continued to be accused of free love and heathenism, it quickly solidified into a reasonably strict and regimented society, famous for unisex outfits, eugenics, and regular 'criticism sessions' in which congregants were publically humiliated for misdemeanours.

        Portrait de Madame X EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: S.n., 1849. Fine. S.n., S.l. 1849, 60x80cm environ hors cadre, autre. - Directed by Charles Landelle one of the most famous academic artists and most popular of the Second Empire, this beautiful portrait of a woman sitting in a chair, includes all the codes of the genre and shows the strong influence of Ingres, the great master of portraiture in his time, which was not yet his teacher. Details of hands especially direct reference to the style of the painter of the Odalisque and Turkish bath. The work is signed and dated 1849 lower right also recalls another famous painting: Portrait of Veuve Cliquot painted by Leon Cogniet two years later. That year the painter shows two portraits of women at the show and we think because of the anonymity often public models (simply titled the initial of their name) and the large size of this painting that could be one of them. Born in 1821 in Laval, Charles Landelle moved to Paris at the age of four years, then joined the Royal School of Fine Arts in 1837 as a student of Paul Delaroche and Ary Scheffer. Early in his career, Landelle painted several portraits to support himself. Strongly influenced by Italian painting after trips to the South of France and Italy, it copies some paintings of the great masters of the Renaissance to the Louvre. Medals at the Salon from his earliest exhibitions Fra Angelo receiving the inspirations of God (1842) and St. Cecilia (1848), he distinguished himself by religious and historical subjects that allow him to win the recognition of the high society of his time. His critics assure him success at the Salon soon numerous state commissions, including The Rest of the Virgin in 1854 which earned him to be awarded the Cross of Knight of the Legion of Honor. That same year he produced pastel portrait of Alfred de Musset, now in the Louvre. The artist thus embraces a career official painter between state controls and portraits of members of high society. Able to adapt to the tastes and fashions of his time, quickly gaining a reputation Landelle he knows how to maintain, never forgetting to provide a portrait or a painting to its benefactors. In the second part of his career, after the official portion of it is was somewhat out of breath, the artist traveled extensively in Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and is dedicated to Orientalism that will occupy much of its production until his death in 1908. Today a number of his works are preserved in the museum. An important background was bequeathed to his hometown of Laval but there are also some of his works in the Louvre, the Ingres Museum in Montauban, the Museum of Fine Arts in Grenoble, Pau, Rouen or the castle Versailles. Note: We do not provide transportation to the work. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Réalisé par Charles Landelle l'un des artistes académiques les plus célèbres et les plus prisés du second empire, ce beau portrait de femme assise dans un fauteuil, reprend tous les codes du genre et montre la forte influence d'Ingres, grand maitre du portrait à son époque, qui ne fut pourtant pas son professeur. Le détail des mains en particulier fait directement référence au style du peintre de l'Odalisque et du Bain turc.  L'oeuvre qui est signée et datée 1849 en bas à droite rappelle également un autre tableau célèbre : Le portrait de la Veuve Cliquot peint par Léon Cogniet deux ans plus tard. Cette année là le peintre expose deux portraits de femme au salon et nous pensons du fait de l'anonymat souvent  public des modèles (simplement titré de l'initiale de leur nom) et du format important de cette peinture qu'il pourrait s'agir de l'un d'entre eux. Né en 1821 à Laval, Charles Landelle s'installe à Paris à l'âge de quatre ans, puis intègre l'École Royale des Beaux-Arts en 1837 comme élève de Paul Delaroche et Ary Scheffer. Au début de sa carrière, Landelle peint plusieurs portraits pour subvenir à ses besoins. Très influencé par la peinture italienne après des voyages dans le Sud de la France et en Italie, il copie quelques toiles des grands maîtres de la Renaissance au Louvre. Médaillé au Salon dès ses premières expositions pour Fra Angelo recevant les inspirations de Dieu (1842) ou Sainte Cécile (1848), il s'illustre par des sujets religieux et historiques qui lui permettent de gagner la reconnaissance de la haute société de son époque. Ses succès critiques au Salon lui assurent vite de nombreuses commandes d'État, notamment Le Repos de la Vierge  en 1854 qui lui vaut d'être décoré de la croix de Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. Cette même année il réalisa au pastel le portrait d'Alfred de Musset, aujourd'hui conservé au Musée du Louvre. L'artiste embrasse donc une carrière de peintre officiel entre commandes d'État et portraits de membres de la haute société. Capable de s'adapter au goût et aux modes de son temps, Landelle gagne vite une notoriété qu'il sait entretenir, n'oubliant jamais d'offrir un portrait ou une toile à ses bienfaiteurs. Dans la deuxième partie de sa carrière, après que la part officielle de celle-ci se fut quelque peu essoufflée, l'artiste effectue de nombreux voyages au Maroc, en Égypte, en Algérie et se consacre à l'orientalisme qui occupera une grande part de sa production jusqu'à sa mort en 1908. Aujourd'hui un certain nombre de ses oeuvres est conservé en musée. Un fond important a été légué à sa ville d'origine, Laval mais on retrouve également certaines de ses oeuvres au musée du Louvre, au musée Ingres de Montauban, au Musée des Beaux-arts de Grenoble, de Pau, Rouen ou encore au château de Versailles. Attention : Nous n'assurons pas le transport de cette oeuvre.

        Principles of Political Economy with Some of Their Applications to Social Philosophy

      John W. Parker, London 1849 - Two volume set, handsome spines with 5 tooled raised bands, curly gilt motifs in compartments, red leather title labels and green leather author/volume labels. The tan calf leather is powdery in places along edges where rubbed, hinges supple and not threatening to crack, inner hinges tight as well. The boards have blind embossed inner keylines and double gilt outer keylines. Marbled endpapers and marbled text block edges. There are three wormholes at spine hinge ends, one on corner of inside board. Incumbents long gone, and the holes are not too serious as no paper is affected and no hinge weakness thereby. You can see two nearly 1cm long by 1mm channels in the leather. The board edges have minor wear perhaps benefiting from a little leather treatment, but OK as-is. The text blocks are tight and generally clean throughout, with a pattern of foxing freckles heading in a few leaves from the ends. Overall a handsome set with lots of shelf appeal and built to last. xvi+611pp, xv+552pp. Size: Royal 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Phillip Parker King's Port Stephens meteorological journal: the separate offprint. The very rare separate publication of P.P. King's meteorological journal and thus a significant monument to the important Australian. Born on Norfolk Island, King was "the first and for years the only Australian-born to attain eminence in the world outside the Australian colonies" (ADB).Originally published in the sixth number of the Tasmanian Journal (1849), this is a separately issued offprint, identified by its pages being differently numbered for this purpose (from [1] to 4). Such offprints, now as then, are normally produced in small quantities for distribution by the author, usually to no more than a close circle of colleagues or friends.During the years 1817 to 1822 Phillip Parker King extensively surveyed the coastline of Australia, completing the work begun by Matthew Flinders, before returning to England and commanding surveying expeditions to Peru, Chile and Patagonia. King had become a shareholder in the Australian Agricultural Company in 1824, and it was as Resident Commissioner of the company that he took up residence at Tahlee House in Port Stephens at in 1839. Here he built his own observatory from which he made the observations for this journal and for an astronomical journal which he published for the years 1843-1848. Whilst at Port Stephens he also printed, for private distribution, sailing directions for the route to the Torres Strait, a paper on the specific gravity of water, and another on meteorology.Ferguson appears to have made two separate entries for the only copy of the Meteorological Journal he was able to locate (NL). The first entry assumes that the date of publication was 1847 and the later suggests 1849, as the article appeared in the Tasmanian Journal in January of that year. In fact as an offprint this would have preceded journal publication, while the data published by King goes to the very end of 1847; thus 1848 would be the more likely date.

        Puzzle - Map of Asia with Original Wooden Box - Created By Cartographer to Her Majesty Queen Victoria

      London, 1849. London, circa 1849. Map of Asia, being an early map puzzle made by James Wyld, official geographer to Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Accompanied by the publisher's original wooden sliding lid box with label to front and manuscript dedication to underside dated 31 December 1849. Lithograph hand-coloured map dissected into forty-six jigsaw puzzle pieces, assembled and mounted onto wood and sealed with mylar for protection. Box measures approximately 16 x 20 x 5,5 cm. Map measures approximately 36.5 x 43.5 cm. Mildly age-toned; one contemporary replacement piece encompassing the Caspian Sea and Transcaucasia is blank, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a lovely and unique historic map. Replete with obsolete placenames, and presented in an uncommon format, Wyld's map of Asia is especially ephemeral due to frequent border changes in Central Asia, especially around Afghanistan due to the "Great Game" between the Russian and British Empires. Made in the first half of the strategic and ongoing campaigns for domination over Central Asia, a near century long rivalry known as "The Great Game", it predates the Crimean War (of 1853-56) and the Anglo-Persian War (1856-57). The city of Samarkand appears in the broders of Caboul. (The Kingdom of Caboul comprised most of current territories of Afghanistan. In 1868 the Russians conquered Samarkand, which is today a principle in Uzbekistan.) It is also contemporary to the Battle of Tonkin River (20-22 October 1849), a major naval battle fought in northern Vietnam between the pirates of Shap Ng-tsai and the British Royal Navy with aid from the Qing navy and the Tonkinese. In the interest of Arctic regions, the map shows the "Impenetrable Ice Barrier" which prevented Captain Cook and the HMS Resolution from discovering the Northern Sea Route. British naval captain James Cook was the first to see both sides of the Bering Strait (1778) and thus to prove the separation of the continents. Due to large amounts of impenetrable sea ice in the Northeast Passage, as indicated here, it would be a century before Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld would fully traverse the strait, when in 1878-79 he sailed along the northern coast of Siberia and through it. Also on the Russian coast, Novaya Zemlya is not fully charted and Murmansk is not shown (situated northwest of Archangelsk, it was Russia's last city to be founded in 1916.) Also pre-dating the Alaska Purchase (1867) by almost twenty years, the Alaskan coast is shown, although Oomneemak Island (Unimak island) and the remainder of the Aleutian Islands are not fully charted. Valachia appears on this map (Wallachia or Walachia, a historical and geographical region which was for brief periods under Russian occupation between 1768 and 1854, and which became part of Romania in 1859). Little Tartary (now part of Ukraine), Tartaria, and Russian Tartary (Siberia) are also named, as are the Gulf of Tartaria and the Corean Sea (now known as the Sea of Japan, although disputed by Korea.) [As the Russian Empire expanded eastward and more of Tartary became known to Europeans, the term 'Tartary' fell into disuse. European areas north of the Black Sea inhabited by Turkic peoples were known as Little Tartary.] In China principle cities are shown as Pekin, Nankin, and Canton. Wyld also delineates the Great Wall of China from Pekin into the Gobi Desert south of Ortos [Ordos] in Inner Mongolia. Japan is here named Nippon and other placenames include Jesso or Matsmai, which has been known as Hokkaido since 1869, Yedo (Tokyo), and the Loo-Choo islands (now Ryukyu Islands). Other historic names include Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Burma (Myanmar), Siam (Thailand), Cochinchina (now part of Vietnam), Candia (the name for Crete until 1797 when it was part of the Republic of Venice). In northeastern Africa the cartographer includes Nubia (Sudan), Zanguebar (the Swahili Coast), and Ajan (Azania) in the Somalia region of the Horn of Africa. The territory across the Red Sea is marked Arabia Felix. New Holland is a historical European name for mainland Australia. The name was first applied to Australia in 1644 by the Dutch seafarer Abel Tasman. The name came to be applied to whole "Southern land" or Terra Australis, though the coastline of the continent had still not been fully explored; but after the British settlement in Sydney in 1788 the territory to the east of the continent claimed by Britain was named New South Wales, leaving the western part as New Holland. New Holland continued to be used semi-officially and in popular usage as the name for the whole continent until at least the mid-1850s. The origin of the jigsaw puzzle is generally attributed to cartographer and engraver named John Spilsbury (1730- 1769), whom, in 1767, first cut up a wooden map of the world into pieces, devising an educational tool for the aristocracy?'s children to learn the geography of the expansive British Empire. Then called "Dissected Maps," these early wooden puzzles began the history of the jigsaw puzzle. They quickly gained popularity among the upper class in both Europe and America, continuing steadily throughout the 1800s, even rivalling bridge and lawn bowling in the early twentieth century, and often found at parties or in the parlours of weekend estates. James Wyld the younger (1812-1887) was a respected geographer and map seller, and was chosen for the prestigious post of Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (so had been his father before him). The son of James Wyld the elder (1790-1836), upon his father's death in 1836, he became the sole owner of the thriving family mapmaking business based in Charing Cross. His maps were regarded highly, and Wyld the younger held his own excellent reputation as a mapmaker, reputed for obtaining and publishing the latest geographical discoveries as soon as they occurred. In 1839 Wyld was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. By 1854 he had establishments in Charing Cross East, the Royal Exchange, and at 11 and 12 Charing Cross.. Very Good.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM FORTY-NINER ELIJAH EALY TO HIS WIFE, DESCRIBING HIS TRIP ACROSS THE PLAINS TO CALIFORNIA]

      Uba [sic] River, Ca. Sept. 30, 1849.. [3]pp. autograph letter, on a folded folio sheet. Addressed for mailing on the fourth page, with an inked circular "San Francisco Cal. Nov 1" postmark and an ink "40." Old folds. Small tears at several cross- folds, affecting a few letters of text. Paper tanned and lightly stained. Good overall, and quite readable. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. Dr. Elijah Ealy of Dayton, Ohio departed St. Louis in late April 1849, and proceeded to Independence and then St. Joseph. He and his party followed the Platte River Road, but eventually veered south toward Salt Lake City. They arrived in California in mid- September, 1849, and this letter was written from Ealy's camp along the Yuba River in northern California. Ealy died in December 1851, just a little more than two years after writing this letter to his wife. In this letter he recounts the details and hardships of his overland journey in vivid style, giving an excellent description of the challenges he (and thousands others) faced. He writes, in part: "Benj. Kniseley was drowned in attempting to cross the north fork of Platte River....He had a hard time of it, indeed, it is no sport to cross over a barren, sandy & rocky country, as it is from Fort Laramie here. There is no grass except on the water courses & in one place we had neither water nor grass for 60 miles, with the exception of what we carried with us. Cattle died on this desert in great numbers. We did not lose a single mule. And fortunately for the emigrants, the citizens here, have sent out, on all the routes, provisions & cattle to help the emigrants through. Capt. King, McCorkle, the Smiths & others we passed on Humboldts River. King had a fight with the Indians. It appears from what I could learn that they had some of their oxen stolen. A party went out into the mountains in search. They found the Indian thieves & they commenced shooting their arrows. King was wounded in the arm. He succeeded, after a hard struggle in which the Indian seized his rifle & attempted to wrest it out of his hand, in shooting him through the heart. The others in seeing their red comrade fall, took to their heels & were soon out of sight. They were very troublesome & stole away a great many oxen & horses. I saw one company from Missouri that had all their oxen stolen." Ealy goes on to describe their difficulty in obtaining provisions along their overland journey, then turns to the excitement in California over the prospects of riches from mining: "There is great excitement here, in regard to the gold. There is just at this time, a bustle of running from one gold region to another. Great stores are told of men making fortunes in a few days. And I have no doubt many have done so. The fact is gold is abundant on all the streams which rise in the mountains east & south-east of the Sacramento River. And almost every man you see has his little bag of gold....We came to this place 8 days ago, but found the richest diggings all claimed by others. It is only in places that fortunes are to be made, but it is exceedingly hard labour to get it out from amongst the rocks." He then discusses the difficult methods of mining, the high prices for goods, and his plans to go to the "dry diggings" south of Sutter's Fort for the winter. A fine Gold Rush letter, describing the hardships of the overland journey to California and conveying the hopes of riches in the mines.

        [AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED AND ILLUSTRATED, BY JOSIAH SAVAGE, TITLED "Inklings of a Voyage 'Round the Horn'"]

      Various places, including New York, Jamaica, Chile, Cape Horn, and San Francisco. Jan. 16 to July 31, 1849.. 200pp. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter black calf and cloth, spine gilt. Some wear to boards and edges. An occasional bit of spotting, but mostly clean. Very good. In a marbled slipcase. A phenomenal journal of a voyage around Cape Horn to California in 1849, illustrated by the author with pencil sketches of his ship and sights from his voyage, including drawings of "Valparaiso Girls," and depictions of horse riders in Chile and Valparaiso. This well- written journal begins with its young author departing New York on the Barque Croton (elegantly illustrated on a preliminary leaf) in January of 1849, an early participant in the California Gold Rush. On board Savage and the other young men traveling with him amuse themselves by writing letters, seeing dolphins, catching Bonita, reading, getting fellow passengers drunk, and generally behaving as young men on an adventure do. Savage is a good writer, and gives detailed descriptions and illustrations of his travel. In Chile, he describes drinking mate with the natives. From p 136: ^"The ladies of Valparaiso so far as our observation extended may be considered as a whole decidedly good looking not to say handsome. Their complexion is dark without any of the rosy tint so much admired in the Anglo Saxons. Their peculiar charms consist in their large black eyes & luxurious & pretty hair which they generally wear in two long plats as was the fashion a few years since among young girls in the U.S…. Many of them have bad teeth…it is thought by the free use of a peculiar drink called matte & is a concoction of some kind of herb & such & very hot water through a silver tube. I had an opportunity of taking it at the house of a fair Chilano where I was introduced by a young gentleman whose acquaintance I made in V. After first taking a suck at the liquid, she passed it to me & afterwards to the rest of the company & so it went round the room til the pot was dry - all sucking through the same tube!" ^Most "Round the Horn" journals end abruptly on arrival in California, but in this case Savage kept his going for some time, and about 3500 words are devoted to his impressions and experiences there. When the barque arrives in San Francisco on July 29, 1849, Savage complains about the climate and criticizes his fellow travelers: "Many of the soft fingered gentry who have come out here with the idea that lumps of gold were to be had for the picking up have found themselves sadly mistaken. Gold is not to be got without hard labor unless a man has capital to start with in speculation." He notes "there is an immense quantity of shipping in port more than a hundred sail English, French, Dutch, Peruvian, Chilano and Kanacka..." ^The journal closes as Savage and his partners plan to take the barque up the Sacramento River and sell their beef, pork, butter, dried apple and other stores at a healthy profit. Savage is optimistic through it all: "All I can say about our prospects is that they are quite as good as I had expected. There is money to be made in one way or another and we are bound to make it." ^The author is likely Josiah Savage (1824-1849) of Middlesex County, Connecticut, an 1846 graduate of Yale who died in California in 1849. The San Francisco Public Library owns an undated typescript of this journal, but the original had not surfaced publicly until now. ^A fascinating and important first-hand historical account from an early participant in the California Gold Rush.

        Livourne. Vue prise au dessus du Fanal

      Livorno 1849 - Suggestiva veduta a volo d'uccello della città di Livorno. Peculiarità della veduta risulta essere il punto di presa, molto alto rispetto all'orizzonte. Infatti Guesdon effettuò il disegno della città a bordo di una mongolfiera; questa innnovazione permise all'artista di presentare la città in tutta la sua complessità. La tavola si trova nella famosa opera L'Italie a Vol d'Oiseau pubblicata a Parigi nel 1849 ca. da Hauser. mm 280x440

        Pl 112 Californian Hare The Quadrupeds of North America

      V.G. Audubon 1849-54, New York - A fine original hand-colored lithograph on paper. Royal Octavo (10.5 x 7 inches). Drawn from nature by John Audubon, drawn on stone by William E. Hitchcock and lithographed, printed and colored by JT Bowen, Philadelphia. Accompanied by the original text written by the Reverend John Bachman, DD. The Quadrupeds of North America; portrayals of 155 four-legged mammals native to North America depicted in their natural environment, was a collaborative effort between the premier nineteenth century American Ornithologist, Naturalist, Artist and Frontiersman, John James Audubon (1785-1851), his sons John Woodhouse Audubon and Victor Gifford Audubon and the Naturalist Reverend John Bachman. The four men were unified in their desire to document and portray what they recognized as a dwindling resource; America's native animals amidst the natural beauty of the untouched American landscape. Their collective wisdom predicted the impending effects of Manifest Destiny- man's encroachment on the wilderness and natural landscape of North America- and as such was the impetus for the journey. To document and then portray America's native animals in the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited North American landscape, the team traveled westward from Audubon's home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark; from the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories- now Alaska- then southward to Mexico. Arduous and monumental, the journey is recognised in the pathos of the compositions. However, the true legacy of the work rests on John James Audubon's prolific vision and mastery of his subject and medium. Heretofore unseen, The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife classic: an essential and timeless contribution to both American Culture and the Art of American Wildlife Painting. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: "We have at last have a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens, the Bible of Nature!" (John James Audubon in the West. New York: Henry H. Abrams, 2000). Sabin 2368. Wood 208. Fine with original hand-coloring [Attributes: Soft Cover]
