        Shining Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx Lucidus)

      London: The Author 1840-, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (535 x 350 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. Gould notes that although the Shining Cuckoo is an active bird, 'it is characterized by a remarkable degree of quietude'. Like most Cuckoos it deposits it single egg in the nest of another bird. This is an original hand coloured lithograph plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia.Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. 'Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849' (Prospectus).

        Theodore's Cattle

      Poona: For Private Circulation, Printed at the Deccan Herald Press,, 1869. Octavo. [ii], 58pp. Original purple bead-grain cloth covered card wraps. C20th rubber stamp of philatelist M. A. M. Graham inside upper panel of the wraps. Wraps a little rubbed and sunned, upper wrap professionally reattached, slight discolouration of the title page from ?old repair, light toning, else very good. First and only edition of this justification of Lord Napier's conduct before the storming of Magdala, at the conclusion of the Abyssinian Expedition. Concerning the Emperor's "peace gift" of cattle, this was an enigmatic incident which emerged from a profound clash of culture and a confusion of intent, and which the British commander clearly felt was in need of some clarification. Scarce, COPAC and OCLC list only the BL copy. The pamphlet opens with an extract from Napier's speech at Welshpool in August 1868, in which he explains that he had always been determined that he would "receive no negotiations from Theodore," but had revealed this only to his Military and Political Secretaries. Tewodros had sent two letters to the British commander, the first, on 11 April - "Theodore's Testament" - was written following the Abyssinians' heavy defeat in the battle of Good Friday and in response to Napier's ultimatum, it was also immediately before the Emperor's abortive suicide attempt. The second was sent the following day when he was "now desperately anxious to make peace." (Appleyard and Pankhurst) He freed the first of the contentious captives, and offered to "send heifers to you," a gesture of friendship "deeply engrained in Ethiopian culture." Unaware of the true significance of this peace-offering, Napier seems to have agreed to accept them, but when the 1000 cattle and 500 sheep were approaching the British camp, the underlying meaning was explained to him, and he had them stopped at the first piquet "until Tewdoros's 'full acceptance' of his conditions." Tewodros learned of the failure of his peace initiative later that evening, and again essayed suicide, this time successfully. Magdala was comprehensively sacked the following day. This pamphlet was evidently issued soon after Napier's return to India, having briefly basked in the thanks of his grateful nation, in order to allay the rumours of duplicity which may have begun to circulate. A family copy inscribed on the title page from "C.F.B. from E. W. B. 1870" and then "Robert Napier Bray, 1st D[uke] of W[ellington's] Regt. late 33rd Regt. from C. F. B. 23rd Oct 1896."

        Charadrius Xanthocheilus: Wagl (Australian Golden Plover)

      London, 1869 This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph, Charadrius Xanthocheilus: Wagl, from John Gould?s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Australia", is in mint condition and measures 14" x 21". This lithograph magnificently displays the author?s scientific skill and attention to detail. These birds, commonly called Australian Golden Plovers, are expertly hand-colored in shade and patterns of brown, taupe, black and white. The adult in the foreground has a black face, chest and underside with a white outline, whereas the juvenile has the intricate patterns of feathers throughout its body. At the time "Birds of Australia's" publication, the birds of this region were essentially unknown to a European audience and as Gould himself admitted in the preface to the book, ?the field was comparatively a new one?.John Gould was without question the most prolific ornithological artist of the 19th century, and the only one to rival John James Audubon in ambition and quality. The 19th century was a time of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents, and embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain.Gould?s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. The Birds of Australia is John Gould?s largest and most important work. Because he himself spent so much time in the field making his own observations, the text that accompanies the illustrations is by far the most accurate and detailed of all his works. Each of the illustrations is stunningly colored and flawlessly drafted, highlighting the exquisite plumage and elegance of the birds.The colossal work is tremendous throughout, and quite rightly, it is considered Gould?s masterpiece. When Gould began work on the Birds of Australia, the ornithology of that continent was all but unknown in Europe. Gould started his research using specimens available in England, but quickly realized that the supply was far from sufficient. He discarded the work and traveled to Australia to begin his effort anew on his magnum opus.Arriving in Australia in September 1838, Gould and his wife, Elizabeth, spent the following eighteen months exploring Tasmania and the adjacent islands, South Australia, and New South Wales, and penetrated well into the interior. Over the course of these extensive travels Gould made many of the preliminary drawings that were translated into the remarkable series of 681 lithographs. Gould collected and documented so many new species -- more than three hundred -- that very few additions have been made since. His voyage to Australia was unsurpassed in the annals of ornithology.

Size; 20 x 14 cms (8" x 5.5"). Weight; 835g (1 pound 13 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. The original green cloth covers, with gilt titling to the spine, are cleaner and sounder than often found with slight wear to the corners and darkening to the spine (see photo). The binding is tight and strong having probably been rebacked at some time. The text and pull out diagram are clean and bright and free from foxing. The trimming of a few bottom edges is a little irregular, an original printing/binding error. There is a stylishly penned 1869 owner's inscription on the half-title page, that of H G Dakyns, emminent British translator of Ancient Greek texts and friend of Tennyson. This is altogether a very handsome and desirable early printing of the 'most important biological book ever written' (Darwin Online). THE BOOK:'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. N.B. It is in this edition that Darwin used the expression 'survival of the fittest', Herbert Spencer's term, for the first time. Size: 20 x 14 (8" x 5.5") Pages: 596

        Plate LV, Bimaculated Teal, Female

      London, 1869 Prideaux John Selby (1788-1867) created some of the most memorable bird images of the 19th century. This expertly hand-colored copperplate engraving, Plate LV, Bimaculated Teal, Female, from his work “Illustrations of British Ornithology,” measures 21.25” x 25.75” and is in mint condition. This female Bimacualed Teal, also known as Bikal Teal, is expertly hand-colored with intricate plumage in rich brown shades, with white detailing and a green wing flank.Selby’s contributions to British Ornithology were rivaled only by those of John Gould, and yet his images were on a larger scale and less purely scientific, exhibiting Selby's distinctive and charming style. nBorn in Northumberland and educated at University College, Oxford, Selby was a landowner and squire with ample time to devote to the study of the plant and animal life at his country estate, Twizell House. As a boy, he had studied the habits of local birds, drawn them, and learned how to preserve and set up specimens.Later, Selby became an active member of several British natural history societies and contributed many articles to their journals. Although Selby was interested in botany and produced a "History of British Trees" in 1842, he is best known for his "Illustrations of British Ornithology," printed in 1820, the first attempt to produce a set of life-sized illustrations of British birds, remarkable for their naturalism and the delicacy of their execution. Issued in nineteen parts over thirteen years, the book consisted of 89 plates of land birds and 129 plates of water birds, engraved by William Lizars of Edinburgh.
