        Aulacorhamphus Derbianus, Gould (Earl of Derby's Groove-bill Aracari)

      London 1854 - The dazzling illustrations from Gould’s “Monograph on the Toucans” (1854) are generally thought to represent his most dramatic, magnificent images. This lithograph, Aulacorhamphus Derbianus, Gould, measures 21.5" x 14.5" and is in excellent condition with a few light spotting marks. These birds, commonly called Earl of Derby's Groove-billed Aracari. These birds are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of green with blue eye circles and white accents. They are dynamically positioned facing each other, allowing for their fine coloring and detailing to be appreciated. Precise lines define and detail each feather, giving them dimension. John Gould (1804-1881) was the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The ‘bird man,’ as he liked to be called, had been “enamored with nature, and her charming attitudes” at an early age. This romantic enthusiasm combined with scientific and artistic skills and a forceful entrepreneurial personality, led him to produce a total of almost 3,000 hand-colored lithographs. The plates which resulted were a splendid fusion of art and science whose range is still unsurpassed. Gould recognized that toucans represent perhaps the most inherently stunning of all birds, and combined his passions for accuracy and beauty to create the most lavish images ever devoted to the subject of ornithology. The artist recognized that it would be impossible to embellish a bird as striking as a toucan, and he simply portrayed them as they were in life. The amazing range of vivid colors-shiny black, vibrant red, yellow, and orange-creates an unprecedented sense of animation. Shown against fairly simple backgrounds, the birds seem to emerge, large and engaging, from the page. Gould’s toucans appear as living creatures, not two dimensional representations. The inspiration for the Toucans came while Gould was working on his “Birds of Europe”, when he became fascinated by a collection of toucans owned by a fellow ornithologist. He made several trips to Central European museums to gather material for the Toucans, and after the first edition was published, Gould redrew some of the plates and added 20 new birds for this, the revised and expanded second edition.

This lithograph, Aulacorhamphus Caeruleogularis, Gould, measures 21.5" x 14.5" and is in excellent. These birds, commonly called Blue-throated Toucanets or Purple Snowcaps, are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of green with blue throats, brown eye-circles, and yellow, black and white beaks.

A fine series of original paintings for Paul Gervais' 'Les Trois Règnes de la Nature: Règne Animal. Histoire naturelle des mammifères' (Paris, 1854-55). This album includes the original paintings for all 56 plates in the work, and a further 7 paintings that were not used. The animals were all painted by Werner, and the uncoloured backgrounds, in finely shaded pencil, were executed by Alexandre de Bar./Jean-Charles Werner (1798-1856) was a natural history artist and comparative anatomist for the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, where he contributed some 350 paintings of animals on vellum for the famous Collection des vélins between the years 1826 and 1856. The Collection, initiated in 1631, contained work by the finest natural history artists in France, including Nicolas Robert and Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Werner provided illustrations for the publication of Dumont d'Urville's expeditions to Australia and the South Pacific, and also worked with Cuvier, Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, and Henri Ducrotay de Blainville. Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire named a species of monkey after him./The animals depicted include many recently discovered on the voyages of Dumont d'Urville and others. On plate 40 there is a note by Werner to the colourist Alfred Joseph Annedouche 'faire l'animal plus forcé'. The published plates were engraved on steel, and the animals alone were hand-coloured, leaving the backgrounds plain as here.//Provenance: engraved bookplate of Alfred Grandidier (1836-1921), French naturalist and explorer, and author of the monumental 40-volume survey of Madagascar 'Histoire physique, naturelle et politique de Madagascar' (1875-1937).

        The Crimea War: Nine Holograph Letters from Lord Raglan to Fitzgerald De-Ros. March 3rd, 1854 - September 3rd, 1854

      1854., 1854. Nine letters written by Lord Raglan to the Baron De-Ros. Contained in an envelope on which De-Ros has written: "Lord Raglan's Letters to me alas alas". Beautifully presented in a recent half burgundy morocco book-box with 20 leaves of full transcriptions, notes, and biographies. Lord Raglan was chosen to command the British troops sent to fight the Russian army in the Crimea. He left London on 10th April, spent a few days in Paris, and reached Constantinople at the end of the month. At that time, the bulk of the British and French forces were in camp at Varna, awaiting instructions for a strike against Sebastopol in the Crimea. The present letters, dated from 3rd March to 3rd September 1854, span the period from leaving England, to the opening stages of the war, breaking off with the arrangements to transport the army from Varna to the Crimea. The sufferings and losses of the British Army wintering in the Crimea caused a storm of protest at home; the government fell, and the politicians made haste to shift responsability for the terrible hardships of the troops onto the commander and his staff. However, Raglan never returned from the Crimea to face them in person - he died out there on 28th June 1855. Raglan was instrumental in having De-Ros appointed Quarter Master General for the army in the Crimea, but within a few weeks of his arrival De-Ros fell ill, and was forced to return home to his post as Deputy-Lieutenant of the Tower of London. The letters mention the cholera, and several important names of the time, such as Lord Cowley, Sir John Burgoyne, Marshall Vaillant, 5th Duke of Newcastle, General Airey, Marshall Valinen, Colonel Beatson, Omar Pasha, Lady Cadogan, Rear Admiral Boxer, etc. All are included in the Biography section included. The letters show a great friendship and warmth between the correspondents and intelligent humour. A wonderful little pick at history.

        Romances of Crime; or, The Disclosures of a Detective.

      - Glasgow & London, Cameron and Ferguson [c1860?] Octavo; xvi,304pp. Bound after Alfred Crowquill's 'A Bundle of Crowquills' (London, Routledge 1854) in contemporary half morocco; illustrations in the Crowquill. The Crowquill is browned but the McLevy is quite good; both are bound without half titles. Rare. The Edinburgh detective McLevy has been rediscovered in recent years - with reprints and new fictional cases - but the original editions remain obscure. Of the five titles of his adventures that appeared through the sixties, that I can trace, I suspect that at least one is a new edition of this book; and I'm pretty sure that this is the first of his books - judging by the editor's preface. Whether McLevy or a ghostwriter actually penned these, each adventure is short, pithy and carries a catchy title: The Conjuror; The Handcuffs; The Belfast Key; The Dead Child's Leg; The Blood-Stained Moleskin; . In each the unfailing McLevy usually solves the case in less than a dozen pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NO. 3. VIEW OF HONOLULU. FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

      [San Francisco]: Britton & Rey, 1854.. Large lithograph, 23 1/4 x 30 inches. Expertly backed with modern wove paper. A few repaired edge tears. Very minor dust-soiling to the margins. Central image untouched. Overall, a striking example of a rare view of Honolulu. A superb early view of Honolulu, by the leading San Francisco lithographers of the time. The view looks towards Kaka'ako, with sixteen smaller vignettes of residential homes and businesses bordering the central image, including: (clockwise from top left) Dentist, MacFarlane Hotel, National Hotel & Billiard Saloon, French Hotel, F. Spencer, Lafrenz & Fisher Cabinet Makers, Tailoring by Chas. Nicholson, Stuart & Rahe Cabinetmakers and Turners, Dr. Lathrop Drug Store, Hudsons Bay Company, Globe Hotel, Chas. Vincent, Reynolds, French Store, Ruggles and H Hackfeld & Co. "A Honolulu newspaper, noting the availability of Paul Emmert's series of six views of the city, asserted that the artist had been 'engaged in actual labor' for a period of 'three months, with two assistants.' Although this multi-sheet lithograph was a panorama and thus involved the delineation of only those buildings that could be seen from a ground-level viewpoint, it did include numerous vignettes of important structures" (Reps, VIEWS AND VIEWMAKERS OF URBAN AMERICA, page 46). Paul Emmert (1826-1867) was a Swiss-born artist who immigrated to New York at age nineteen, then almost immediately headed west to California during the gold rush. In 1853, he moved to Hawaii to open a print shop, where he would eventually make prints of his own local drawings. This print, however, was made by the leading San Francisco lithographers, Britton and Rey. The present work was part of a six-sheet panorama of Honolulu; the complete set is all but impossible to find or assemble (OCLC indicates only one institutional holding of a complete set, the Mellon at Yale). Any number in this series is incredibly rare and desirable. REPS VIEWS AND VIEWMAKERS 752.

This title is curiously NOT in Sadleir (XIX); Wolff 75 (Wolff states that this was a publishing experiment for Routledge -- offering the work in two volumes at seven shillings, or two-volumes-in-one at six shillings eightpence).

        The County Election.

      Philadelphia: G. C. Bingham, 1854. - Single sheet, mounted and framed, (24 x 31 inches). Fine engraved print with original hand color in full. First edition. Engraved by Sartain after the 1852 painting by Bingham. One of the leading American genre painters of the mid-nineteenth century, George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) created some of the most memorable views of American small town life. Bingham was fascinated by the democratic process and by the ways in which it permeated everyday existence in communities far removed from the big cities. "The County Election" was part of a six-painting Election Series; the other paintings were "Stump Orator" (1847), "Country Politician" (1849), "Canvassing for a Vote" (1852), "Stump Speaking" (1853), and "The Verdict of the People" (1854-55). "Forgetting perhaps that Bingham had a strong political bias of a militant Whig campaigner for state office, it would seem that recent students of his epic paintings on the American voting process have overlooked the subtle but incisive element of social criticism lodged in his famous work, 'The County Election.' Bingham, it seems, had serious misgivings about the introduction of universal manhood suffrage, with its equalitarian impact on American life, and he particularly resented it when in 1846 he felt he had been unfairly deprived of office by the gerrymandering activity of a Missouri political rival. On its surface, 'The County Election' appears to celebrate the new political ferment that Americans from Bangor, Maine, to the Western frontier were experiencing at mid-century. However, read more carefully as a document of social history, this canvas suggests that Bingham, like his contemporary, James Fenimore Cooper, saw the stability and integrity of the American milieu staggering under the impact of a too rapidly expanding body politic and the rigors of a laissez-faire economic system" (Westervelt, p. 46). "Intemperance was also associated with corrupt politics. George Caleb Bingham's 'County Election' of 1852 depicts the customary practice of candidates' serving free liquor to woo voters before an election In Bingham's painting, voters are enjoying their whiskey, with the result that some are too drunk even to stand, all before a banner hanging overhead that intones, 'The Will of the People, the Supreme Law.' Such scenes, describing a purchased and likely inebriated electorate, delivered a slap to the actual practice of direct democracy" (Barter, ed., p. 111). Robert F. Westervelt, "The Whig Painter of Missouri," The American Art Journal, vol. 2, no. 1, Spring 1970. Judith A. Barter, ed., "Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine."
