        Canterbury Papers Parts 1 & 2

      London,: John W. Parker, February, 1850.. Octavo, 8 pp. advertisements, 56 pp. text, large folding map; preliminary leaves and advertisements thumbed, some browning of the fore-edge and a little localised staining of the last two leaves, yet a good copy overall in attractive half green morocco by Sangorski, spine gilt. Scarce early history of the settlement, collecting and publishing important primary documents related to the Canterbury Association with a modest desire to 'form a chapter of the res gestae of the great heroic work of Colonization'.The preamble states this Papers 'are intended to supply the public with information as to the principles, objects, plans and proceedings of the Canterbury Association for founding a settlement in New Zealand...it is intended to append such extracts from printed books, pamphlets, and papers, bearing directly on the same subjects, as have not appeared in a collective form; and, lastly, to publish such original essays, statements, discussions, and extracts from private letters, papers and memoranda, as may throw light in any way on the nature of the Settlement, or the means available for its formation and success.''The Canterbury Papers were published at intervals between February 1850 and May 1852. The 12 numbers were issued in nine parts of which three were double numbers; paging was continuous' (NZNB). This bound volume includes the first two parts of the Canterbury Papers bound with the eight pages of preliminary advertisements duly noted in the NZNB (although the cover title-page introducing the series of 12 parts is not included here).The first issue of the Canterbury Papers is well regarded for the folding map of the Canterbury settlement, well preserved in this copy.Hocken, p.151; New Zealand National Bibliography, 895.

        The Surgical Anatomy of the Principal Regions of the Human Body

      London: Taylor, Walton & Maberly. 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. 1850. 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. .

        Hudson River School landscape painting

      Ca. 1850.. A Hudson River panorama, unsigned, with a steamboat in the near ground and sailboats in the distance, the foreground a rugged shoreline scene with trees. Possibly inspired by the Hudson Highlands, with some rather exaggerated mountain profiles meeting the shoreline. Painted on canvas and applied to the reverse side of convex glass, a manufacturing process which is a lost art.There is a six inch hairline crack in the glass and some slight faint damage in the skyline of the canvas. Overall a charming landscape framed in a period frame.

        ACCOMMODATION BILL

      1850 - 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.).

        [Valentine] Beehive Valentine

      (Cambridge, MA, c. 1850). This greeting card has an overall detailed, embossed lace design on white paper, depicting what appears to be a wedding of cherubim in a vignette at the top. In the center is a gold-colored ring, a small gilt heart, and the beehive. The beehive is comprised of a circle of gold, red, blue, violet, and white patterned paper, with a blue bow in the center. When the beehive is gently lifted by pulling up on the bow, underneath are revealed the words "Love" and "Hope." The beehive effect (also called "flower-cage" or "cobweb") is achieved by cutting out threads of paper, and then attaching a small string to the center of the picture which, when pulled, reveals an illustration or words underneath. This design form originated in Germany and, as Frank Staff notes in The Valentine and its Origins, "is keenly sought after by collectors today." The valentine is blank on the inside. A few light spots and slight crease to the front of the card, else a very good example of an American printed "beehive" with the original envelope, which is also embossed with a lace pattern.

      1850.] 1850 - Two frontispieces, and 30 plates engraved by Geoffroy after Gavarni, all in two states, on chine monté, and on elegantly coloured and printed papier vélin with borders cut to lace patterns.2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary gilt panelled vellum, by Carayon, with bound in original pictorial wrappers printed in pink . The very rare special issue in which the steel engravings are printed and delicately coloured on paper with borders cut to various lace patterns, or ?decoupées en dentelles? The work is generally only considered complete if both volumes are present as in this example. Carteret remarks: ?La réunion des deux ouvrages avec les gravures à marges de dentelles est assez rare à rencontrer? Gordon Ray only had a copy of the ordinary issue, but remarked that the special edition was far more appealing, and considered that by presenting the plates in this way ?Gavarni's designs become fashion plates of the first order?.Bookplate of Albert Pascal. A few spots but generally an excellent copy of this important issue.Carteret III, pp. 460-1. Ray 209 & 209A.

        PERLES ET PARURES [caption title] ... LES JOYAUX FANTAISIE ... MINÉRALOGIE DES DAMES PAR LE CTE FŒLIX [with:] LES PARURES FANTAISIE ... HISTOIRE DE LA MODE PAR LE CTE FŒLIX

      Paris: G. de Gonet [et al]...[&] a Leipzig: Chez Charles Twietmeyer, [1850].. Two volumes. [4],316pp. plus frontis and fifteen plates; [2],300pp. plus frontis and fifteen plates. Large octavo (27.5 x 18.7cm). Very handsome 20th century half tan morocco, raised bands, ruled in blind, lettered in gilt, and marbled boards, t.e.g., others rough-trimmed, with the original decorative pictorial rose-on- cream wrappers bound in. Occasional very minor foxing or dust-soiling, wrappers a trace soiled, with a couple of small edge mends, a handful of small creases or snags to the edges of the lace borders (see below), light rubbing to extremities, but a near fine, large, crisp set. First editions, in the most desirable form, with the texts printed on vélin, and with the frontispieces and plates (engraved by Geoffrey after Gavarni) delicately hand- colored. The plates are of particular interest, because in this format, they are printed on sheets with elaborate and delicate stencil-cut lace pattern frames and borders. The plates "are studies of beautiful women, fashionably attired for the most part, which were drawn in London. Méry wrote the 'fantasy' accompanying them to fit Gavarni's designs...[in] this special edition...Gavarni's designs become fashion plates of the first order" - Ray. "La réunion des deux ouvrages avec les gravures à marges de dentelles est assez rare à recontrer" - Carteret. RAY (FRENCH) 209a-210. CARTERET III:460-1. VICAIRE V:770-1.

        Plate 13 Antrostromus serico-caudatus, Cassin (Chuck-will's Widow) From The Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences

      Philadelphia: The Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, 1850. first edition Fine with original hand-coloring A Fine original hand-colored lithograph. Folio (9.25 x 13 inches, 235 x 330 mm). The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia was established by the learned naturalists of high Philadelphian society in early 19th century America to document the recent natural discoveries of a new nation. The founding members, and contributors, were the luminaries of early American natural history and sciences; Titian Peale, Thomas Say and George Ord, to name a few. The Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences was their clarion, and was illustrated with wonderful folio-sized hand-colored lithographs by J.T. Bowen and Co. in Philadelphia, America's premier lithographers of the mid-19th century, and the very same company to produce John James Audubon's landmark lithographs for the first seven Royal Octavo editions of the Birds of America (c. 1840-65) and both the Imperial Folio and Royal Octavo editions of the Quadrupeds of North America. (c.1840-54). In essence, the same artists and printers who produced Audubon masterful lithographs created this work. We classify these fabulous plates as one of the best unsung values in the art of 19th century ornithology. &
