Henry B. Ashmead, Philadelphia, 1862. Small quarto. 16pp. With hand-colored title page and fifteen full-page hand-colored illustrations from line drawings. The cover and title page identify the author of this work as "R.M." and the illustrator as "HBA" (i.e., Henry B. Ashmead). In fact, the illustrations are by Jemima Blackburn-who was married to noted Scottish mathematician, Hugh Blackburn-and this work is a piracy of an apparently popular work that was first printed in London in 1855 and remained in print in Scotland into the late 19th century. The arrangement of the images and text-a long narrative poem charting the life of a group of crows, who run afowl of a group of farmers and get shot at for their trouble-prefigures an Art Nouveau sensibility in which the image wraps surrounds the text. This edition is quite rare, with only one recorded institutional copy at Brown University. In publisher's wrappers, printed in green ink. Wrappers show edgewear, soiling, and chipping; lower spine split; ink erasure on upper margin of front cover with slight loss. Internally clean and fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

DARWIN, Charles
Taylor and Francis; The Linnean Society -1869, 1862. Author's issue. Inscribed by Darwin for his son on the title page, "From The Author", together with four related off-prints all bound in contemporary half-calf over marbled boards. Edges speckled red. Bookplate of his eldest son, William Erasmus Darwin to the front pastedown. A very good copy indeed, with minor spotting to the preliminaries, and some rubbing to the extremities of the binding. Some pencil notations to the margins, chiefly the highlighting of passages or ticks of agreement. Binder's ticket of H. M. Gilbert, Southampton, to front pastedown. A fine presentation copy of the rare author's issue of Climbing Plants and four other botanical papers from Darwin to his eldest son, who assisted his father in researching each of them. As Freeman notes, Climbing Plants, Darwin's exploration of the link between plant movement and natural selection, was issued in three forms in 1865; a double number of the Journal and Proceedings of the Linnean Society; a commercial offprint published by Longmans; and the present issue, the author's private offprint printed for Darwin by Taylor & Francis. This issue is rare. No copies have appeared at auction since 1980, and Darwin's correspondence records just seven recipients: C V Naudin (letter, 18 June 1865) Henry Holland (letter, 25 Jun 1865) Thomas Rivers (letter, 6 Jul 1865) Fritz Muller (letter, 12 Aug 1865) Alfred Russell Wallace (letter, 18 Sep 1865) J T Moggridge (letter, 14 Oct 1865) Ernst Haeckel (letter, 11 Nov 1865) Although Darwin did not consider himself a taxonomic exper … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York: Johnson and Ward, 1862. Hardcover. Folio, 99 pages, 64 lithographed maps; G; bound in original publisher's three-quarters calf with embossed green cloth covers, titling in gilt on front cover and spine, marbled endpapers; front gutter partially open; most maps with light foxing; hand-colored plates; shelved above case 3. This is the "late 1862" edition. It is highlighted by the short-lived New Military Map of the United States that illustrates the states and territories instead of the military districts. Other maps of interest include Georgetown and the City of Washington, a map of the plains territories, a map of the Pacific Northwest, and a beautifully engraved frontispiece. This atlas also contains several thematic maps and diagrams interspersed throughout the text. Many of the maps include vignettes showing important buildings and vivid scenes.; In the map of the Southwest, "Arrizona" shows up in the southern part of New Mexico Territory. This is thought to represent the Confederate Territory of Arizona that existed for nearly a year from August 1861 until July of 1862. The Confederate General Baylor appointed himself the territorial governor and claimed all of New Mexico Territory south of the 34th parallel. In the southern part of Arizona is the "Gadsden Ten Million Purchase of Mexico." The Utah/Nevada border follows the 116th meridian. The map is filled with historic and interesting notations. Additional details include the U.S. Mail routes, the Emigrant road to California, the proposed railroad route through Utah, Nevada and California, and the Po … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Gould
London, 1862. This remarkable folio ithograph with hand-finished color is from the esteemed John Gould’s "Birds of Great Britain" published between 1862 and 1873. This particular lithograph is from an early issue of the work before some problems to the stones occurred (such as the snowy owl stone broke and affected the quality in later editions). --- "Birds of Great Britain" allowed Gould to cultivate his aesthetic style. He created very appealing compositions often featuring nests and young with the adult species and intricate backgrounds. Gould realized that the artistry would make this work far more intriguing than its predecessor Birds of Europe and thus introduced 750 copies. "Birds of Great Britain" remains vastly popular today. John Gould created nearly 3000 hand-colored plates of animals in his extensive career. Gould gained much of his knowledge by observation and experience and contributed greatly to scientific knowledge at the time. Gould is believed to have done the original sketches for all of the plates. He utilized many talented artists to help create the finished lithograph including his wife Elizabeth Coxen Gould, Edward Lear, Joseph Wolf, William Hart, and H. C. Richter. Even at the time of publication, Gould’s plates were very expensive and only sold to a small set of subscribers. Due to the limited subscriber list, the plates remain rare and of high value for collectors today. --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be occasional fox marks or imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Gould
London, 1862. This remarkable folio ithograph with hand-finished color is from the esteemed John Gould’s "Birds of Great Britain" published between 1862 and 1873. This particular lithograph is from an early issue of the work before some problems to the stones occurred (such as the snowy owl stone broke and affected the quality in later editions). --- "Birds of Great Britain" allowed Gould to cultivate his aesthetic style. He created very appealing compositions often featuring nests and young with the adult species and intricate backgrounds. Gould realized that the artistry would make this work far more intriguing than its predecessor Birds of Europe and thus introduced 750 copies. "Birds of Great Britain" remains vastly popular today. John Gould created nearly 3000 hand-colored plates of animals in his extensive career. Gould gained much of his knowledge by observation and experience and contributed greatly to scientific knowledge at the time. Gould is believed to have done the original sketches for all of the plates. He utilized many talented artists to help create the finished lithograph including his wife Elizabeth Coxen Gould, Edward Lear, Joseph Wolf, William Hart, and H. C. Richter. Even at the time of publication, Gould’s plates were very expensive and only sold to a small set of subscribers. Due to the limited subscriber list, the plates remain rare and of high value for collectors today. --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be occasional fox marks or imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and … [Click Below for Full Description]
