ALKEN, After Henry Thomas (1785-1851)
London: Messrs. Fores, 18 March 1850. Four aquatint engravings on one plate, coloured by hand, by J. Harris. 4 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches (each aquatint). 17 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. A fine example of Fores's excellent series, with images after one of the greatest British sporting artists. According to Siltzer the series was completed with eight plates (each with four images): one on racing, three on hunting, one on steeple-chasing and one on coursing. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s.... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Siltzer p.65

PHILLIPS, Watts
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.). [Attributes: First Edition]

Lireux Auguste - Cham (Amédée de Noé)
Michel Levy, Paris, 1850. In-4° (278x187mm), pp. (4), 625, (1), legatura coeva m. pelle verde con titolo, filetti e fregi romantici in oro al dorso. Bei tagli marmoreggiati. Sguardie marmoreggiate. 20 incisioni f.t. (una all'antiporta) e numerosissime intercalate n.t. disegnate da Cham e realizzate da Rouget, Midderigh ed altri artisti. Ottimo esemplare. Usuali fioriture. Edizione originale, rara. L'Assemblea Nazionale francese è volta in caricatura dalle mordaci vignette di Cham e dal testo del Lireux. La Seconda Repubblica, la sua tumultuosa vita parlamentare, la convocazione della Costituente, l'applicazione del suffragio universale diretto, il prevalere delle correnti conservatrici, l'indebolimento dell'assetto statale che anticipò il colpo di stato di Napoleone III del 2 dicembre 1851 sono le ragioni storiche che dettero occasione a questo felice parto della fantasia satirica di Cham, qui accesamente antisocialista e filoaristocratica. Cham (Parigi, 1818-1879), figlio del conte Louis de Noé, pari di Francia, fu il caricaturista più acclamato del suo tempo, allora preferito allo stesso Daumier per i suoi molti albi e gli innumerevoli disegni apparsi su Le Charivari, opere che gli valsero larghi consensi anche in Inghilterra (suoi lavori apparvero sul Punch e su The Pupper Show).

Hutton, Thomas
W. Thacker, Calcutta 1850 - Hutton, Thomas. The chronology of creation; or, geology and scripture reconciled. [2, half-title], xvi, [2, errata], 503pp. Half-title printed in red. Hand-colored lithograph frontispiece and 3 handcolored plates. Calcutta: W. Thacker & Co., 1850. 227 x 139 mm. Original green blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine, light rubbing. Minor dust-soiling, but very good. Ownership signature on half-title.First Edition. A rebuttal of Buckland's Geology and Mineralogy Considered With Reference to Natural Theology (1837). Hutton, a strict Biblical literalist, rejected the more liberal views of earth history and species development expressed by Buckland, who"particularly emphasized William Paley's position that the world was not made for man alone but for the pleasure of all species of life; in relation to the object to be attained, all organic mechanisms are equally good, are evidence of beneficent adaptation. He reasserted that it is futile to try to reconcile geological epochs with the days of creation in Genesis . . . As a geological system Buckland chose, possibly borrowing from De la Beche and Conybeare, progressive development from an initially hot earth, with discontinuous assemblages of organic life being created and dying out. To express a secular development while simultaneously rejecting continuous progress and transmutation, he deliberately kept the rhetoric of the Great Chain of Being, but with missing links or gaps in the present creation being filled up by fossil organisms from past time periods. This was a noteworthy change from Cuvier, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALKER, John (1787-1873)
London: William H Allen & Co, 1850. Steel-engraved map, southern sheet only (of 2). Good condition. 26 1/2 x 39 1/2 inches. The southern-most sheet of an engraved sea chart (issued in two sheets) of the coast of China from the Canton River to just north of the mouth of the River Min, with insets of the River Min to Fow-Chow-foo; Mouth of the Yung-Kiang; Mouth of the River Woo-Sung; Killon Harbour and Merope Bay; and River Woo- Sung to Shang-Hae. With latitude and longitude scales, compass roses, soundings, notes on tides throughout, some navigational advice, rivers and place names labeled in interior with notes on regional production. This chart, surveyed after the First Opium War (1839-42) and before the Second Opium War (1856-60), would have been of particular interest to the East India Company as they were deeply involved in China. Initially, all the tea the British comsumed in such vast quantities came exclusively from there. Until they began to import opium from India, the Company was suffering a huge imbalance of payment and loss of specie. So the opening of trade and legalization of opium in China, which were outcomes of the 2nd war, were matters of huge consequence to the East India Company and its supporters. John Walker, Junior, (1787-1873) was appointed Hydrographer to the Admiralty in 1808 and Geographer to the East India Company in 1847. Together with his brother Charles, he continued the family business started by his father, John Walker, senior, who was an assistant to Alexander Dalrymple at the Hydrographic Department as well as Hydographer to the East India … [Click Below for Full Description]
