(cgc) T.P.L. 958. Sabin 73327. Wagner-camp 172. Field 1325. Howes R-448, Streeter 3713. A book of the greatest importance to the history of the Astoria venture and the early Anglo-American struggle for control of the Oregon country. Ross was an officer of the Astoria company, and this is one of the fullest accounts of the entire venture, later supplemented by his Fur Hunters of the Far West. He also includes accounts of Robert Stuart and Wilson Price Hunt. Elliott Coues called this one of the three "synoptical gospels" of the Astoria enterprise. Howes notes that very few copies are found with a colored frontispiece; this is not one of them. The "Map of the Columbia" illustrates Oregon Territory. Contains a section devoted to Chinook vocabulary and jargon. .

Photogravüre, auf festem Velin, mit Rotstift signiert. Darstellungsgröße 26:18,5 cm, Blattgröße 48:34 cm. Literatur: Mascha 779. Variante nach einer Zeichnung, abgeb. In: Gustav Kahn, Das Weib in der Karikatur Frankreichs. Ein junges nacktes Mädchen sitzt, nach rechts gewendet auf einem Käfig mit Amoretten. Es trägt einen Hut mit Mohnblumen.

Im Vordergrund eine Schildkröte mit Schmetterlingsflügeln und einem Blumenstrauß, rechts eine blühende Staude. Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit.

Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des débats littéraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozée bei Mettet, w … [Click Below for Full Description]

"During subsequent years, whenever I had leisure, I pursued my experiments, and my book on 'Insectivorous Plants' was published in July 1875 that is, sixteen years after my first observations. The delay in this case, as with all my other books, has been a great advantage to me; for a man after a long interval can criticise his own work, almost as well as if it were that of another person. The fact that a plant should secrete, when properly excited, a fluid containing an acid and ferment, closely analogous to the digestive fluid of an animal, was certainly a remarkabl … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1849. London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans. VG : in very good condition without dust jackets as issued. Marbled endpapers and edges. Foxing to prelims and endpapers. 1849. Reprint. Brown hardback tree calf leather cover with tooled gilt spine. 260mm x 160mm (10" x 6"). xxiii, 411pp; 444pp; 400pp. Calligraphic facsimile manuscript plates - some folding. A handsome set. Based on the Llyfr Coch O Hergest and other ancient Welsh manuscripts, with an English translation and Notes. Compiled from texts found in two late-medieval manuscripts – the Red Book of Hergest and the White Book of Rhydderch – this collection was initially edited and translated by antiquarians William Pughe and Lady Charlotte Guest in the early nineteenth century. Guest and Pughe applied the term 'Mabinogion' (based on a spurious plural of mabinogi) to their translated compilation. While the Mabinogion collection itself might thus be regarded as a nineteenth century editorial creation, its constituent texts are authentic medieval productions, deriving from originals composed between the eleventh and the fourteenth centuries. .

John Gould
This remarkable ornithology lithograph with hand-finished color is from the esteemed John Gould’s Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Hummingbirds published in London between 1849 and 1887.Family of Hummingbirds undoubtedly featured some of Gould’s most desired plates. Of particular note was the use of gold and silver leaf to create the appearance of the natural iridescence of the hummingbird’s feathers. The birds are also featured amidst intricately drawn fauna that accentuates the beauty of the composition.John Gould created nearly 3000 hand-colored plates of animals in his extensive career. Gould gained much of his knowledge by observation and experience and contributed greatly to scientific knowledge at the time. Gould is believed to have done the original sketches for all of the plates. He utilized many talented artists to help create the finished lithograph including his wife Elizabeth Coxen Gould, Edward Lear, Joseph Wolf, William Hart, and H. C. Richter. Even at the time of publication, Gould’s plates were very expensive and only sold to a small set of subscribers. Due to the limited subscriber list, the plates remain rare and of high value for collectors today. --- The work is in excellent condition overall. Some of the plates may be a few minor imperfections or negligible text offset to be expected with age, but generally very clean.

Alfred GUESDON
Alfred Guesdon nasce a Nantes il 13 giugno del 1808, terminati gli studi classici parte nel 1829 alla volta di Parigi per entrare come allievo architetto nello studio di Antoine Martin Garnaud. Dal 1830 si dedicò a sperimentazioni e ricerche nel campo della litografia, prediligendo soggetti storici, vedute e panorami, tratti dai numerosi viaggi che egli fece in Europa. La peculiarità di queste vedute sta nel fatto che si tratta dei primi rilievi di città dall’alto, effettuati a bordo di una mongolfiera. Nel 1849 pubblica le tavole, in litografia, nel celebre L’Italie à vol d’oiseau., o storia e descrizione sommaria delle principali città di questo paese, di H. Etiennez, accompagnate da 40 grandi vedute generali, disegnate dal vero da Alfred Guesdon e litografate con due tinte da A. Rouargue, Jules Arnout, A. Cuvillier, A. Guesdon. Litografia, lievi ossidazioni, altrimenti in perfetto stato di conservazione. Alfred Guesdon was born in Nantes, June the 13th 1808. Once he finished his classical studies, in 1829, he went to Paris, to study architecture as a pupil of Antoine Martin Garnaud. Starting from 1830, he devoted himself to experimentations and researches on the art of lithography, especially on historical subjects, views and landscapes he took from his many trips around Europe. The distinctiveness of these views is the fact that they are the first representations of the cities from above, realized on board of an air balloon. In 1849 he published the lithographic plates in the famous L’Italie à vol d’oiseau., o storia e descrizione sommaria delle principali città di ques … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liberty Party [Free Soil Party; Francis William Bird; Charles Francis Adams]
[Norfolk County, MA?, 1849. Broadside, 10" x 11-3/4". Crudely trimmed, lightly foxed, Very Good. This apparently unrecorded broadside, expressing the political turmoil resulting from the national schism about the extension of slavery, is signed in type at the end by F.W. Bird, Chairman of the Liberty Party Town Committee. Bird was tireless in his efforts to unite anti-slavery men of all stripes into a single political force. Norfolk County would elect three men to the State Senate. Bird urges a vote for his ticket: Charles Francis Adams-- who had run as Vice President on Martin Van Buren's Free Soil ticket-- carries on "the imperishable love of LIBERTY" which distinguished his father and grandfather; Ezra Wilkinson, who "always has been, out and out, a WILMOT PROVISO MAN," including support for the Liberty Party's Buffalo Platform; and M.M. Fisher, "a tried and true Liberty man of the old stamp." On 7 November 1849 the Brooklyn Eagle, quoting from an article in the Boston Chronotype, reported that "The Union Convention for Norfolk yesterday nominated for Senators" these three candidates, "a good ticket."

9 lettres autographes signées 20 In-8 1849-1868 En-têtes du ministère de l’Instruction publique. bon Charles Jourdain dévoile les grandes lignes de la réforme de l'enseignement voulue par Falloux. « J'ai reçu depuis ce temps là des fonctions nouvelles [en décembre 1848, il avait été nommé chef de cabinet de Falloux] et me voici bien loin de la science. J'ai abandonné la spéculation pour la pratique et je vis au milieu des affaires. J'écris beaucoup de lettres ; j'en reçois encore plus ; je donne force audiences ; j'assiste aux débats de l'assemblée où j'ai mes entrées comme chef de cabinet ; me voilà mêlé aux luttes de la politique ; ce qui ne m'empêche pas d'aller de loin en loin rendre une visite aux élèves de Stanislas que je n'ai point oubliés et que j'aime toujours. La ligne de conduite que M. de Falloux se propose de suivre est parfaitement simple. Chef de l'Université, il ne l'abandonnera pas ; loin de là, il considère comme de sa dignité de la fortifier, de développer tous les événements de grandeur et de durée qu'elle renferme. Il se consacrera à cette oeuvre loyalement, sans arrières pensées. En même temps, il travaillera à fonder une liberté de principe efficace, à établir en face des écoles de l'Etat, des écoles rivales, relevant non du caprice ministériel mais de la loi et d'une loi libérale et clémente. Voilà si je ne me trompe la tâche que M. de Falloux s'est imposée, à laquelle tous ses amis se proposent de concourir. J'ai été heureux de pouvoir mettre la main, selon mes forces, à ce grand ouvrage ; s'il réussira, je l'ignore [.] ». D'autres lettres concerne … [Click Below for Full Description]

Notes of a Botanist on the Amazon and Andes. Being records of travel on the Amazon and its tributaries, the Trombetas, Rio Negro, Uaupes, Casiquiari, Pacimoni, Huallaga, and Pastasa; as also to the cataracts of the Orinoco, along the eastern side of the Andes of Peru and Ecuador, and the shores of the Pacific, during the years 1849-1864. By Richard Spruce, edited and condensed by Alfred Russel Wallace, with a biographical introduction, portrait, seventy one illustrations, and seven maps (four folding). Two volume set. First edition, Macmillan 1908. Richard Spruce was one of the great explorers and botanists of the 19th century; though he died before he could publish the accounts of his travels, his incomplete chapters and voluminous notes were drawn upon by the other great explorer and botanist Alfred Russel Wallace to produce this work. In his 15 years of exploration in South America, Spruce visited countless areas previously unseen by Europeans, gave the first scientific accounts of tens of thousands of unknown plants, and amassed a wealth of ethnobotanical insight, for instance, into the spiritual and ceremonial usages of psychoactive substances. The volumes are in very good minus condition. They have been rebound in green cloth, with parts of the original backstrips used to provide the spine labels, and new endpapers. There is moderate external wear, with some bubbling to the cloth in places. The illustrations, photos, and maps are all present (one of the fold-out maps, pictured, is somewhat creased and torn, with stains at the bottom).
