        Soemmerring's Pheasant

      ?A very detailed hand-colored natural history lithograph by Joseph Wolf (German-English, 1820-1899) from his book "Zoological Sketches", which was compiled for the Zoological Society of London and printed in London: by Henry Graves & Company in 1867. Overall this print measures 13 ?" x 19", the lithograph is tipped into the larger paper which includes a boarder and lettering.Sir Edwin Landseer described Joseph Wolf as ?...without exception the best all-round animal painter who ever lived.? Born and educated in Prussia, Wolf moved to London in 1848 to pursue a growing number of commissions to illustrate natural history works. He quickly became the foremost animal illustrator in Britain. Among his achievements were the illustrations he produced for Gould?s ?The Birds of Great Britain?(1862-1873) and the romantic subjects he drew for ?The Life and Habits of Wild Animals? (1873). Wolf did not wish to be categorized as a scientific illustrator, preferring to create complete and naturalistic compositions, which conveyed a sense of drama and mystery. Rather than show his subjects isolated from their environment, Wolf integrated them into a natural setting and portrayed them involved in dramatic action.In 1852, the British Zoological Society commissioned Wolf to complete several watercolors for its Zoological Sketches published in parts between 1856 and 1867. P.L. Sclater, the secretary of the society, noted in the publication?s preface, ?the Council was fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr Joseph Wolf, who may be fairly said to stand alone in intimate knowledge of the habits and forms of Mammals and Birds.? By this stage in his career, Wolf?s works were in considerable demand both in their own right and as illustrations to books and journals. ?From 1859 to 1869 Wolf was the regular artist for Ibis, the journal of the Zoological Society, and his work was also reproduced in the Illustrated London News, Once a Week, The Leisure Hour, The Sunday at Home, and The Graphic. Unfortunately, during the 1870s, Wolf was increasingly hindered by the onset of chronic rheumatism, which gradually curtailed his work, but he lived on into his eightieth year and died in London surrounded by his pet birds and held in high popular esteem. ?More than three-quarters of a century later his plates are regarded as among the finest productions of the great period of the illustrated book, while his oil paintings, watercolors and drawings are prized by museums and collectors alike.Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining throughout margins.?

        Cedrus Deodara, A Grove at Nachar near the Waterfall, from a drawing by the late Lady Canning (Himalayan Cedar)

      Edinburgh & London 1867 - Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the latter group, here drawn from a drawing by William Richardson and lithographed by F. Schenck. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf.

        Autograph Letter Signed to [Edward Rogers], 2 pages 16mo on very thin black-edged paper with blank leaf, Chelsea, 11 February 1868. With a transcription in a more legible hand.

      - Thanking him for the gift of Some Account of the Life and Opinions of a Fifth-Monarchy-Man (London, Longmans, Green etc. 1867). Teh Fifth Monarchists were a group of Christians at the time of the English Civil War and Commonwealth who held the belief that a Fifth Monarchy or Empire would arise following those of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome, founding their idea on the dream of Nebuchandessar in Daniel II of the Old Testament.'I received your Fifth-Monarchy-Man and have gone over that curious record of his earthly Pilgrimage, enveloped (as all men's is) in strange clouds and hallucinations! He is not discreditable to you as an ancestor. . what I most admired in that "Interview" and throughout, was the almost incredible patience of O[liver] C[romwell] Protector (and Governor) of England with him and the like of him, in those perilous conditions of the Commonwealth. The book will be an ornament to my small Puritan collection .'
