        Papillons Exotiques.

      1850. (Grenoble c. 1850). Oblong 4to (225 x 330mm). With 133 watercolours incorporating wing specimens each with Latin and French nomenclature and the country of origin. Contemporary green half morocco, gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettering. A superb collection of Exotic butterflies collected and drawn by Andre Alexandre Fauche-Prunelle. The butterflies are transferred on paper, each approx. 140 x 170mm. and mounted on blue grey thick card, tissue gards throughout. The wings of the insects have been transferred to the paper and the bodies of the insects have been meticulously coloured by hand. The butterflies are for the greater part from the Caribbean, Central- and South America (of which 36 from Brazil), but also from India, Sri Lanka and other parts of Asia. Two are from Australia. The process of making such tranfers has been practised before and even a book, in a limited edition, with original butterfly transfers was published in 1900 by Denton on the Butterflies of the United States. Andre Alexandre Fauche-Prunelle (Grenoble 1795-1863) is known for his historical publications such as 'Recherches sur l'origine du parlement de Grenoble', 1859. He must also have been a keen naturalist as he likewise published 2 botanical works: 'Coup d'oeil sur la vegetation des Alpes', 1858 and 'Coup d'oeil sur la vegetation de Briancon', 1860. According to H.H. Trouvelot 'Les Faucher ou Fauche' p. 25, Fauche-Prunelle was well known for his paintings of butterflies, which he exhibited 'au Salon de Grenoble'. Fauche-Prunelle must have made more collections of butterflies. 15 years ago we sold a collection of 1682 butterly transfers by him with the following title: "Papillons du Dauphine'..

        The Physical Atlas - A series of maps & illustrations of the Geographical Distribution of Natural Phenomena embracing I. Geology II. Hydrography III. Meteorology IV. Natural History.

      William Blackwood and Sons,, Edinburgh: 1850 - Important work by the Scottish geographer Alexander Keith Johnston (1804 - 1871), who was urged to put together the Atlas by the Prussian explorer and geographer Alexander von Humboldt, whose research was incorporated into the work. Von Humboldt believed in the unity of nature, in examining all the sciences in order to understand the complex interrelation of life on the planet. The range and scope of topics in this Atlas speaks to that inspiration. There are four divisions, each with a broad range of subjects. The Geological Division includes, among other subjects: Volcanic phenomena and distribution over the globe, earthquakes, the geology of the globe, and glaciers. 34pp text (1-34), 10 double-page plates include The Mountain Systems of Europe; Geological Structures of the Globe; Mountain Chains in Asia and Europe; Mountain Chains in North America; Mountain Chains in South America; Illustration of the Glacier Systems of the Alps; the Phenomena of Volcanic Action; Comparative Views of Remarkable Geological Phenomena; Paleontological Map of the British Islands; Paleontological Map. (inset of ammonites). The Hydrographical Division subjects include: the Atlantic Ocean (and Humboldt's theory of its formation), monsoons, rivers, steam navigation, temperatures, and tidal maps. 16pp text (1-16), 6 double-page maps include: Physical Chart of Atlantic Ocean; Indian Ocean & the Pacific Ocean; Tidal Chart of the British Seas; The River Systems of Asia and Europe; The River Systems of America. The Meteorological subjects include, among others: Air & wind currents, barometric pressure, climate observations by Humboldt, the discovery of Mt. Erebus, hurricanes (November 1836 "one of the most dreadful on record"), isothermal lines, rain, snow, storms and tyfoons (sic). 10pp text (1-10), 5 double-page maps include: Humboldt's System of Isothermal Lines; Geographical Distribution of the Current of Air; Hyetographic or Rain Map of the World; Hyetographic or Rain Map of Europe; Map of the Lines of Equal Polarization in the Atmosphere. The Phytological and Zoological Division subjects include: ethnographic study of Europe, Marsupialia, Seal fisheries, tea (history and cultivation of), whaling and zoological geography. 34pp (1-34), 9 double-page plates include: Outlines of Botanical Geography/Geographical Distribution of Plants; Survey of.the Most Important Plants.Used as Food for Man; Zoological Geography (with inset views of animals of the world including Marsupialia; Geographical Division & Distribution of Carnivora; Geographical Division. Rodentia & Ruminantia; Geographical Division. Aves / Birds of Europe; Geographical Division.Reptilia / Ophidia; Ethnographic Map of Europe; Ethnographic Map of Great Britain and Ireland. He collected much of the material for the Atlas in Germany and August Petermann came to Edinburgh to help with the work. Johnston expected no financial profit from the "Physical Atlas", since physical geography was scarcely taught in Britain at this date (Elizabeth Baigent for DNB). However, interest generated by the work of Charles Lyell, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace would perhaps contributed to the fact the the atlas was published first in 1848, and again in 1850 (folio edition herewith; & smaller edition), 1856 and a variations through at least 1892. The maps are especially interesting and beautifully executed, with original hand color in most cases.Folio, (15 x 22 1/2"), (8) preliminary pages, total of 102pp text, 30 double page maps, many with original color. Nicely rebound in half dark morocco with maroon & gilt title labels, in very good condition (one closed tear on dedication repaired). Discreet previous owner name & address top of title.

        News-cutting album kept by the artist Thomas Faed, circa 1850-1885

      - 4to. Elaborate multi-coloured leather boards, detached, affected by damp inside and out, backstrip lacking; top outer corners of pages chipped or brittle, but contents generally sound. 30 (out of 72) pages bearing over 200 news-cuttings about or by the artist (some reproductions of his own work), the provenance of many noted in his hand, from newspapers and periodicals including The Academy, The Athenaeum, The Builder, Caledonian Mercury, The Daily News, The Examiner, The Glasgow Daily Herald, Good Words, The Graphic, The Illustrated London News, The Literary Gazette, The Manchester Guardian, The Morning Post, The Scotsman, The Times and The Whitehall Review; also two poems (both by R.P. Scott?) transcribed in Faed's hand; two printed poems on a single sheet (one by "T.F.", the other by "R.P.S."; in duplicate - proofs?) and a single-sheet printed poem by Faed signed at the foot the author (a proof too?); with other cuttings loosely inserted (two sent by the cuttings agency Henry Romeike) and a pencil drawing of a boy (201 x 161mm, some damp-staining). "Faed is, indeed, a second Wilkie." Thus an unattributed press snippet 
on the fourth page of the artist’s album, and Thomas Faed (1826-1900) was perhaps doomed to live in the shadow of his countryman and fellow genre painter, who died a week before Faed's 15th birthday. Wilkie was the son of a Fife manse, Faed born in a mill outside Gatehouse of Fleet in Galloway; both moved to London. Faed was elected ARA in 1861, soon after this album begins, and full RA in 1864. On the same page as "a second Wilkie", the Lord Chancellor (Lord Campbell of St Andrews, another son of a Fife manse) tells the 1861 Royal Academy banquet that "Mr. Faed (loud cheers) . . . already rivals the fame of our immortal Wilkie". Even in death he was compared with Wilkie: his obituary in The Times (obviously not here included) declared, "From the beginning his taste lay in the direction of the 'homely pathetic' – scenes of domestic genre, not without their moral or even their religious lesson. Whereas Wilkie, following the great Dutchmen, had been content to paint the gayer aspects of the life around him, 'The Penny Wedding,' 'The Village Festival,' and what not, Faed appealed to the graver emotions of his countrymen, and his anecdotes dealt with such matters as 'The Mitherless Bairn,' 'The First Break in the Family,' and the like . . ." Although the earliest dated cuttings are from 1860, there are other earlier, undated and unattributed articles from the Scottish newspapers e.g. on the showing (in 1850) of Faed's celebrated work Sir Walter Scott and His Literary Friends "previously to its being placed in the hands of the engraver". As well as accounts of exhibitions or individual pictures and slivers of anecdote, there are examples of Faed's poetic art - cuttings of his "On Visiting the Room in which Burns Died", 28 lines, "A Plea for Coming Years" by "T.F.", 16 lines, "Burns" by "T.F.", 30 lines, "Suggested by Alma Tadema's Painting, 'A Reading from Homer'. Royal Academy Exhibition, 1885", and, on a single printed sheet, signed only in pencil, the 24-line "It ceased when Sappho's song was sung . . ." Prose includes a letter from "T.F." to the Editor of the Galloway Gazette on the death of the irascible James M'Kay, "a man of mark in his humble way . . . familiarly known as 'Jamie Kie'". In addition the artist has transcribed by hand a poem entitled "Sir Walter Scott and his Literary Friends. Painted by Thomas Faed" from Octavia and other poems (Edinburgh, 1852) - published anonymously but by his friend and fellow-countryman Robert Park Scott (presumably the author of the companion piece to Faed's "Burns" above, by "R.P.S.") - and the 16-line "'When the Children are asleep' Thomas Faed R.A." (perhaps also Scott's work). Further details on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Männer des Volks, dargestellt von Freunden des Volks. Unter Mitwirkung von L. Braunfels, Karl Buchner, Th. Creizenach, Dräxler-Manfred, E. Duller, Dr. Karl Gutzkow, L. Griesselich, R. Hadermann, W. Hieronymi, Hoffmann von Fallersleben, H. König, Wilhelm Sauerwein u.a. Herausgegeben von Eduard Duller. 8 Bände (komplett).

      Kl. 8° (17 x 11,5 cm). Schlichte Halblederbände der Zeit (Band 1 & 8 abweichend gebunden). Eduard Duller war ein 1809 in Wien geborener, 1853 in Wiesbaden gestorbener deutsch-österreichischer Autor, Historiker und Geistlicher, der bereits im Alter von 17 Jahren als Dramatiker an die Öffentlichkeit trat. Die Demagogenverfolgung im Österreich der Metternich-Ära ließ ihn im Jahr 1830 nach Deutschland auswandern, mit verschiedenen Stationen: München, Trier, Frankfurt am Main, Darmstadt und Mainz. In Frankfurt gab er die Literaturzeitschrift "Phönix" heraus, die, von Karl Gutzkow besorgt, Vorabdrucke von Schriften Georg Büchners und Christian Dietrich Grabbes sowie anderer Autoren des Vormärz zum Druck brachte. Duller war gleichfalls der erste Biograph Grabbes und machte durch ein kritisches Werk über die Jesuiten von sich reden. In den vorliegenden Bänden sind um das Revolutionsjahr 1848 herum zahlreiche Kurzbiographien gesammelt, die zum revolutionären Zeitgeist passten und sich wohl im gleichen Sinn auf eine kritische oppositionelle Tradition beriefen wie eine solche zu gründen suchten. Inhalt Band 1: Ulrich von Hutten, Franz von Sickingen, Heinrich Pestalozzi, Jakob Lafitte, Moritz Arndt, Heinrich Zschokke, Latour d'Auvergne, Friedrich Spee, Balthasar Bekker und Christian Thomasius, Joachim Lelewel, Lafayette. Inhalt Band 2: Clemens XIV., Fox, Herder, Hohenheim, Lessing, Riesser, Savonarola. Inhalt Band 3: Blücher, Falk, Forster, von Gagern, Huss, Luther, Stein, Washington. Inhalt Band 4: Arn. von Brescia, von Beckerath, Fichte, Heim, Heimburg, Lornsen, von Schiller, von Vincke (Vater und Sohn), Wicliffe. Inhalt Band 5: Behr, Diesterweg, Hofer, Itzstein, Körner, Rousseau, Schön, Wallenweber. Inhalt Band 6: Kepler, Basedow, von Schill, Sylv. Jordan, Zwingli. Inhalt Band 7: Weidig, Franklin, Blum, Kosciuszko, Oberlin, Nettelbeck, Claudius, Hebel, von Held, Franke, Jacquard. Inhalt Band 8: Galilei, von Winkelried, Ronge, Carrel, Börne. - Bibliotheksexemplare mit Stempeln auf dem Titelblatt. Einbände etwas berieben, wenige Ecken etw. bestoßen. Vorderer Einbanddeckel von Band 1 angeknickt. Vorsätze leimschattig und fleckig, teilweise mit handschriftlicher Nummer und Besitzervermerk.

        Household Words (SIGNED)

      Bradbury & Evans, London 1850 - Household Words was published every Wednesday from March 1850 to May 1859. Each number cost a mere tuppence, thereby ensuring a wide readership. Here are the first 9 volumes (of 20) containing issues 1-229, with many literary and sociological tales of mid-Victorian life in Engloand. Theoretically, according to Wikipedia, the paper championed the cause of the poor and working classes, but in fact addressed itself almost exclusively to the middle class. Only the name of Dickens, the journal's "conductor," appeared. Articles were unsigned (although authors of serialized novels were identified) and, in spite of its regularly featuring an "advertiser," went unillustrated. In order to boost slumping sales Dickens serialized his own novel, Hard Times, every week between April 1 and August 12, 1854 (contained here). It had the desired effect more than doubling the journal's circulation and encouraging the author who remarked that he was, "Three parts mad, and the fourth delirious, with perpetual rushing at Hard Times". That Dickens owned half of the company and his agents, John Forster and William Henry Wills, owned a further quarter of it was insurance that the author would have a free hand in the paper. Wills was also appointed associate editor and, in December 1849, Dickens' acquaintance, writer and poet Richard Henry Horne was appointed sub-editor at a salary of 'five guineas a week'. In 1859, however, owing to a dispute between Dickens and the publishers, Bradbury and Evans, it was replaced by All the Year Round in which he had greater control. The journal contained a mixture of fiction and nonfiction. A large amount of the non-fiction dealt with the social issues of the time. Also found here for the first time are Mrs Gaskell's Cranford and Dicken's own Child's History of England. All volumes are 1/2 leather with marblised paper covers, signed in pencil by James D. Smillie on several tps, who edited and published an American version of this weekly paper. Seven volumes in excellent condition, two with chips and bits missing from top of spines. Weight and shipping may be a consideration. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "April Showers. Uncomfortable quarters-or the peculiarly painful position of a gent while sheltering from the fury of the elements". all written in Leech's hand

      n.p., [c. 1850]. 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Pen and ink and watercolor on paper, initialled "JL" on lower left, mounted in larger sheet of paper, matted. Fine . 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)

        A complete and universal dictionary of signals for the boats of Her Majesty's fleet: Well adapted for yachts

      Lon. , 1850.. Color and b/w lithographed plates. Wilmot, a commander in the Royal Navy, reviews existing signaling methods, employing lithographed pages with colored illustrations to do so. He then proposes vastly expanding the existing “vocabulary” of signals, which hitherto consisted mostly of line of battle commands - these were called “significations” in earlier Royal Navy signal books. He proposes over 9000 boat signals, and a separate set of signals for steamers. Scarce. Not in Craig. Worldcat shows only 2 libraries holding copies of this first edition (the book was reprinted in 1851, 1857, and 1859). Bound in original polished calf with gilt cover illustration of a sailor using the “homograph” system of signaling. Inscribed by the author, November 1849. Light cover wear, VG

        Bankoku ryakuzu - Simplified Map of the Nations of the World

      c.1850. Octavo (186 × 124 mm) leporello between light wooden boards, opens with with a double-page hand-coloured world map, followed by 66 pages with over 480 hand-coloured flags. Boards a little rubbed, the lower cracked across and with some erosion at the edges, minor marginal worming, overall very good. No other copy traced. Subtitled as featuring "only those countries in the five great continents that are 100% accessible to ocean-going ships" this is in fact a highly attractive mid-nineteenth-century Japanese survey of the flags of the maritime nations of the world. Despite the fact that Japan was still "closed", this publication shows a clear interest in access to and from the wider world.

      G : in Good condition without dust jacket. Modern binding and new endpapers with original title pasted to spine. One plate loose. Ocasional edge-tears. Some minor extinct worming (confined to the upper margins). Minor browning First Edition Green hardback cloth cover 270mm x 170mm (11" x 7"). 371pp; 24pp + 2 pp ads. Twenty four hand-coloured lithographic plates including 18 double page plates. Additional engraved illustrations within the text. This is the First collected edition of Morton's anatomical works, comprising The Surgical Anatomy of the Perinaeum; the Groin; the Thigh; the Popliteal Region; the Hip Joint; Inguinal Herniae; the Testis and it's Coverings; the Head and Neck; the Axilla; the Bend of the Elbow and the Radial and Ulnar Arteries of the Wrist. These were issued separately between 1838 and 1845. This collected edition was issued after Morton's death. All these works are remarkable, because they are illustrated by his brother Andrew Morton a leading London portrait painter. Arguably they mark the revival of an artistic representation of anatomical details.

        [Antigua] Original watercolour drawing, inscribed 'Entrance into / English Harbour / Antigua / taken from / Fort Charlotte / 4 July 1850"

      Antigua, West Indies: 1850. Watercolour on paper, inscribed lower left. Sheet size: 9 7/8 x 13 3/4 inches. A beautiful and historically important image of the entrance to English Harbour (looking inland with a glimpse of Falmouth Harbour beyond) viewed from Fort Charlotte. According to William R. O'Byrne's A naval biographical dictionary (London: 1849) Vol. 1, p.70, Bellairs joined the Navy in 1809 and made Lieutenant in 1819. From 1842 he served as Admiralty Agent on board a 'contract Mail steam-vessel'. He evidently travelled widely: the National Maritime Museum in London hold two of his West Indian drawings, the National Library of Australia a watercolour of a scene in Panama, and a collection of his drawings of the Far East were sold in 1982. As the present drawing shows he was clearly gifted, and more than a match for many of the professional artists working at the time. His 'professional' status received contemporary confirmation when his watercolour 'View of the town of St. Thomas, in the West Indies' was drawn on stone by W.L. Walton, lithographed and hand-coloured by Charles Hullmandel, and published as a separate print in 1843 (a copy of this print is held in the New York Public Library collection, and is described by Deak). Cf. Deák 525; cf. Martyn Gregory Galley "Lieutenant Walford Thomas Bellairs R.N. ... Admiralty agent and ... artist in the Far East" (London: 1982); cf. Rex Nan Kivell Collection NK10620; cf.

        [Grenada] Original signed pencil and wash drawing of The Carenage, St. George's, Grenada

      Grenada, West Indies: 1850. Pencil and wash on paper, signed in ink lower right 'W.T. Bellairs R.N.', inscribed in pencil on verso 'Caranage [sic.] Grenada / July 50 / W T. Bellairs' verso. (Pin holes, neat repairs to two tears to lower margins). Sheet size: 6 7/8 x 10 5/8 inches. An important view of the inner harbour of St. George's, Grenada: the name 'Carenage' recalls a time when this calm protected bay was where wooden ships were periodically 'careened' or beached to allow for the cleaning of barnacles from the hull. According to William R. O'Byrne's A naval biographical dictionary (London: 1849) Vol. 1, p.70, Bellairs joined the Navy in 1809 and made Lieutenant in 1819. From 1842 he served as Admiralty Agent on board a 'contract Mail steam-vessel'.

His 'professional' status received contemporary confirmation when his watercolour 'View of the town of St. Thomas, in the West Indies' was drawn on stone by W.L.
