        19 Original-Zeichnungen.

      Deutschland / Österreich, um 1850.. Bleistiftzeichnungen, farbig aquarelliert. Auf Zeichenkarton in unterschiedlicher Größe (von 16 x 7 bis 16 x 19 cm; meist ca. 16 x 10 cm).. Ausgesprochen reizvolle Folge feiner und gekonnter Orig.-Zeichnungen. Einige Zeichnungen signiert 'Alexander' und datiert '1852'. Unikate Folge eines Künstlers, der sich in seinen Motiven anlehnt an der unbändigen erotischen Phantasie des Franzosen Le Poitevin (d. i. Eugene Modeste, 1806-1870). 12 der Motive finden sich in dem Mappenwerk 'Charges et Decharges', sind jedoch hier durchaus eigenständig ausgeführt mit unterschiedlichen Details oder Varianten. Z.B. in der Darstellung eines auf dem Rücken schwimmenden Teufels, der seinen gigantischen Penis als Segel benutzt, doch dieses Segel trägt nun die Aufschrift 'Voz'. 7 der Zeichnungen zeigen vollkommen eigenständige Motive. Die meisten tragen am Rand in Bleistift eine Zahl; sofern es Seitenzahlen sind, könnte es sich um ein wohl nicht realisiertes Druckprojekt handeln. Tafeln leicht angeschmutzt mit Abreibungen. Ränder mit kleinen Läsuren.

Over 500 engravings from designs of W. Croome and other artists including six colored plates using the cromolithography process. Cromolithography was developed in the 1840s and this book, published in 1850, is an early example of the use of this process for printing color illustrations. All 6 color plates are present with the original tissue guards on each. Each plate is in fine condition. Many of the plates in this book have been reproduced and sold individually. Especially popular to reproduce is the black and white plate of the "Texas Ranger" on page 356. 640 pages. A very important book of the history of Mexico, Texas, and the Southwest . Due to the age of the book foxing is present on all pages, but the clarity of the text or illustrations is not affected. A 1 1/2 in closed tear is at the top of page 11. The book has an early owner's name written in that has not been identified. This book has been thoroughly inspected for missing pages and illustrations and any defects. The book has been rated as in Near Fine condition. A superb copy that you will likely not find anywhere in this condition.

        The Henpecked Husband. Mrs. Cluckington. 'I'll teach you to be out late at-night-again in'.". all written in Leech's hand

      n.p., [c. 1850] - John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe) 5 3/4 x 4 3/2 inches. Pen and ink and watercolor on paper, initialled "J Leech" on lower left, mounted in larger sheet of paper, matted. Fine

      1850. Fine. PHILLIPS, Watts. AN ACCOMMODATION BILL. Drawn by Watts Phillips, which he trusts will be accepted by the public. [London]: D. Bogue, [n.d., circa 1850]. First edition. 18 leaves of plates, accordion fold, in the original illustrated paper boards. 5 1/2 by 3 7/8 in. (13.7 x 9.8 cm). Covers have a touch of rubbing and edgewear, and some general light soiling, else a fine and quite pleasing copy. Title information is taken from the illustrated cover. The story is a satire relating the trials of trying to recover a loan made to a friend; the back cover, showing a fly caught in a spider's web, provides a graphic summation of the tale. Watts Phillips (1825-1874) was the only pupil of George Cruikshank. He was an early contributor to Punch, and the founder of the short-lived periodical Journal for Laughter. He gradually abandoned caricature and illustration for success as a dramatist and, less successfully, as a novelist. (D.N.B.; Houfe, Dict. of Brit. Bk. Illus. & Caric.).

Ottimo e raro esemplare, fioriture in alcune cc., dovute al tipo di carta. BrM(NH), 1188. Nissen ZBI, 2579. La prima ediz. di quest'opera è del 1840, la presenta è una riedizione della seconda. Non vi sono però sostanziali differenze tra le varie edizioni. Le tavole di questa ponderosa opera di Lucas (1814 - 1899), celebre naturalista francese, sono così distribuite: Anellides 8, Crustacés 20, Arachnides 13, Myriapodes 3, Monomorphus (attuali Insetti Apterigoti) 1, Anoploures 1. Era consuetudine del tempo trattare gli ultimi due gruppi insieme agli Aracnidi e ai Miriapodi, anziché, come sarebbe più ovvio, tra gli Insetti. Ogni gruppo ha le tavv. con una propria numerazione, c'è però da notare che la tav. 14 degli Arachnides è insieme alla tav.1 dei Myriapodes. Esemplari con le tavole colorate sono assai difficili da trovare.

There are no known institutional copies. "There will be a Special Service on Sunday Evening, January 13, 1850, when elder A. Cordon, H.P. from the camp of Israel, will deliver a discourse on the Literal Gathering of the Twelve Tribes of Israel; and On Sunday Evening, January 20, Elder John Toone, Jun. Will Deliver A Discourse on The First Principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Public are respectfully entreated to attend And for as much as the different denominations of professing Christians are crying out delusion! delusion!! or at least, allowing other ministers from a distance to do so - The Latter-day Saints take this opportunity of publicly inviting all men of whatever class or character, to come to their Preaching Room and try their principles by the only true standard, - THE BIBLE. They lay themselves open for discussion; and particularly invite those gentlemen of the different denominations who are called Leaders of the Church - or Ministers of the Gospel. They will, with all cheerfulness, allow any one to prove to them how they err; and in case of conviction, they will gladly and publicly acknowledge it, and adopt any means to further the purposes which are recorded in the Word of God: - For verily and truly the Lord hath said that in the last days he would set up a kingdom, and it shall be done. "Let God be true, though every man a liar." They publicly acknowledge the ordinance of Baptism for the remission of sin, and laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and anointing with oil in the name of the Lord for the restoring of the Sick. Service each Evening will commence at Half-past six." Flake/Draper 6779b.5

Original blindstamped brown cloth covers bound in at rear. Contained in a protective red velvet bag. Front flyleaf with bookplate of Robert LeGresley. BAL 7600. Leaves a shade less than bright (as in the typical copy), occasional corner creases, isolated spots of mild foxing, otherwise A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and in a pristine binding. This is a volume of firsts: the first edition, first issue of Hawthorne's first novel, his first publication for Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, and generally recognized as the first major American novel. Described by Day as "Hawthorne's masterpiece and one of the world's greatest novels," "The Scarlet Letter" probes the nature of sin, guilt, repentance, and salvation. Set in Salem in the early years of the Massachussetts Colony, the story tells of the scarlet "A" (standing for "adultery") embroidered on the dress of Hester Prynne, and the secret "A" searing the heart of her child's father, the seemingly saintly Reverend Dimmesdale. According to ANB, "Hawthorne's tightly plotted, densely symbolic, and psychologically probing story of concealed and revealed sin in seventeenth-century Boston is his most serious work of moral and cultural history. In his day as in ours, readers struggle to understand its main characters in the context of a repressive society. Arguably, Hawthorne's greatest achievement is his heroine Hester Prynne." One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its well-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. The press run for this title was 2,500, so the book is not difficult to find for sale, but well-preserved copies in original cloth are quite uncommon now. Consequently, an attractively bound copy like the present one (with original covers and spine bound in) is a desirable alternative. (The book may be purchased without the bag.).
