        Danseuses de l'Opera Costumes des Principaux Ballets Dessines par Alophe

      Au Bureau du Journal Les Modes Parisiennes. Printed by Imprimerie Auguste Bry. Typography: Henri Plon Paris: Au Bureau du Journal Les Modes Parisiennes. Printed by Imprimerie Auguste Bry. Typography: Henri Plon. First Edition. Wraps, with Custom-Made Folder. Very Good . N.d., circa 1850. Colas 103 gives an earlier date, 1838, but this is improbable based on some of the dancers and roles depicted. Fourteen hand-colored plates of the leading ballerinas of the day, all in performance: Taglioni, in La sylphide (a role she created in 1832); Rosati, in Corsaire; Ferraris, in des Elfes; Zaina Richard, in Marco Spada; Marquet, in Marco Spada; Marquet, in le ballet du Dieu et la bayadère; Fiocre, in L'amour de Pierre de Medicis; Cassegrain, in Marco Spada; Emarot, in Guillaume Tell; Emma Livry, in Herculanum; Caroline, in Marco Spada; Plunkett, in La mañola de La favorite; Vibon, in le ballet Vert-Vert; and Lefevre, in Orfa. Aided by the restrained use of color, which bears a similarity to how photographs would be hand colored, the illustrations have a near-photographic quality, and they thereby convey to us the physical aesthetic that prevailed in the mid-nineteenth century on the dance stage. Measuring 34 by 25 cm. The green wraps have a paper infill where there was edge chipping and tearing. Spine paper now gone. After heavy soiling on the first tissue guard, though, the plates are all clean and bright, and other than tiny corner creases, without issue. A handsome tan cloth custom-made box now houses the book.

      London - Henry G. Bohn, 1850. London - Henry G. Bohn, 1850 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A smart set of this investigation into the identity of the controversial political writer Junius, in an armorial fine binding. New Edition. Complete in two volumes. Featuring a page of facsimilies of the handwriting of Junius. 'To which are added his confidential correspondence with Mr. Wilkes, and his private letters to Mr H. S. Woodfall'. 'With new evidence as to the authorship, and an analysis by the late Sir Harris Nicolas'. Junius was the pseudonym of a writer who contributed a series of political letters to the Public Advertiser from 21 January 1769 to 21 January 1772 as well as several other London newspapers, such as the London Evening Post. Charges were brought against several people, of whom two were convicted and sentenced. Junius himself was aware of the advantages of concealment, as he wrote in a letter to John Wilkes dated September 18 1771. Two generations after the appearance of the letters, speculation as to the authorship of Junius was rife. Sir Philip Francis is now generally, but not universally, believed to be the author. Condition: In a full calfarmorial binding. Externally, smart with some shelfwear only. Slight marginal fading to the front board of Volume II. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean with just the odd spot or mark. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

      Mexico: Julio Michaud y Thomas, [ca. 1850]. - Lithograph title-leaf and forty-five lithographic plates, twelve in full color and thirty-three on tinted grounds. Oblong folio. Later green cloth spine and corners over original printed green boards. Some wear and soiling. Quite clean internally. Images bright and fresh. Very good. The first great Mexican lithographic and color plate book, and a very difficult book to obtain in nice condition. Though the album is undated, it contains battles scenes of the Mexican-American War (1846-1847) and depicts the equestrian statue of Carlos IV in the courtyard of the University, from where it was removed in 1852, suggesting a date of circa 1850. The colored plates depict various inhabitants in their local costumes standing amid sweeping terrain and graceful plazas. These include rancheros, tortilleras, and local Indians among others. The tinted views show Vera Cruz, Mexico City, the Independence Fountain, the National Theatre, Chihuahua, the Bay of Acapulco, and numerous other locales. The final six plates show scenes from the Mexican-American War, showing the "heroica defensa" put up by the Mexican Army. The number of plates in this work varies from thirty- nine to forty-nine, and seems to have been issued on an on-demand basis. The Mellon copy at Yale has thirty-nine plates, and, in their cataloguing, Yale refers to the book as the "first major color plate book produced in Mexico." The Bancroft Library holds a copy with forty- nine plates. The copies at the University of Texas and the University of Missouri have forty-five plates, as in the present copy. The only other copy we locate on OCLC is one at the National Library of Art in Britain. The DeGolyer copy at SMU is not present in OCLC, but their copy also has forty-five plates, as do two copies we know of in private collections. The six Mexican-American War views are at the end of the book, suggesting that they were added to the original assemblage of thirty- nine plates. The best study of this work is the Condumex reprint edited by W. Michael Mathes in 2000. The publisher, Julio Michaud, was a native of France who moved to Mexico and worked there as a publisher and bookseller from the 1830s to the 1860s. His partner was also a transplanted Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Thomas. Michaud later dealt in photographic material and was himself a photographer. A rare and beautiful work. MEXICO ON STONE, 56.

B/w/red; Oblong folio; 65 pages; 14.5" x 11". Front end paper with creases, first three leaves with quite light and minor foxing. 100 partly color [numerals], maps, 11 folding maps/charts, all collated. These folding plates are quite large- often 20 x 30" or even larger and have occasional folds but seem free of tears.. Bound in publisher's brown cloth with impressed design and gilt title. Sabin 22917. The author of this work, James Pollard Espy, nicknamed "The Storm King" for his classic book, The Philosophy of Storms, was the first Meteorologist of the US Government, pioneering in the use of the telegraph to assemble weather observation data. Espy designed the first American weather map for a private scientific institute in 1838, before he moved to Washington. His first official meteorological report was published in 1843, but apparently included no maps. So the 100+ "Charts" in this second report represent the first weather maps published by the US Government. ; 0 .

There are two extant English ballads known as The Ballad of Chevy-Chase, both of which narrate the same story. As ballads existed within oral tradition before being written down, other versions of this once popular song may also have existed. The ballads tell the story of a large hunting party upon a parcel of hunting land in the Cheviot Hills, hence the term, 'Chevy-Chase'. The hunt is led by Percy, the English Earl of Northumberland. The Scottish Earl of Douglas had forbidden this hunt, and interprets it as an invasion of Scotland. In response he attacks, causing a bloody battle which only 110 people survived. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is only slight wear to the extremities, with just slight bumping and rubbing to the hinges. Therear inner hingeis moderately strained but still holding well. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean. There is some offsetting from the bookplate.

        An extraordinary collection of 26 photographic portraits of leading photographers

      Various processes, 1850s-90s. - 26 photographs. Various processes. Many of the portraits were taken at the studios of the photographers themselves. This superb collection of photographs of photographers documents the spread of photography from its inventor Daguerre through the art’s earliest practitioners in the United States and ultimately to the great photographers of the Civil War and the American West. The collection begins with a portrait of Louis Daguerre. Portraits of American photographic pioneers include Samuel Morse, who brought Daguerre’s process to America, and John William Draper, the American scientist who helped to perfect it. Mathew Brady, greatest of all 19th-century American photographers, is represented by a fine CDV portrait and an image from the end of the war in which Brady inserts himself into a group portrait of U.S. Grant’s staff. Brady trained photography giants Alexander Gardner and Timothy O’Sullivan, both of whom are represented with stunning portraits. Finally, the collection includes runs of portraits of photographers who made famous portraits of Lincoln, associates of Gardner, American regional photographers, some with their photographic equipment, and photographers of the American West including William Henry Jackson and Carleton Watkins. This remarkable assemblage of rare portraits, which would be impossible to duplicate at any price, vividly documents the lineage of photography from Daguerre through his leading heirs in the United States. Examples include: 1. Louis Daguerre. Inventor of photography 2. Samuel Morse. Artist and inventor who introduced the daguerreotype to America and trained the first generation of American photographers. 3. John William Draper. Pioneering photographer who made crucial improvements to the daguerreotype and who took the first successful pictures of the moon and of a woman’s face. 4. Mathew Brady. Towering figure in 19th-century American photography. “More than any other American, Brady shaped the role of the photographer as a national historian” (Trachtenberg). 5. Alexander Gardner. Leading Civil War photographer and pioneer of photojournalism. 6. Timothy O’Sullivan. Major Civil War photographer who took the first 44 photos in Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War, and later a major photographer of the American West. 7. Carleton Watkins. Giant of photography of the American West and “the greatest American photographer before Stieglitz” (Naef) 8. William Henry Jackson.
