        Costumes de Suisse

      Lucerne and Dornach (Alsace), respectively: Fortune Aubert; Agence de la Maison Ad. Braun. Scarce collection of photographic costume plates, with no copies located on OCLC. N.d., circa 1869. With 36 mounted photographs of Swiss women in provincial dress and either engaged in prototypical activities are surrounded by the paraphernalia of such activities. In a neat cursive in the lower margin is written the city that the photo was taken, and so each woman shown is in a sense representative, in her dress and activity, of the named place. Adolphe Braun (1812 - 1877) was a French photographer known for floral studies, Parisian street scenes and Alpine landscapes. In 1855 he was awarded a medal at the Exposition Universelle held in Paris that year. Later he created a business that focused on photographic reproductions of important paintings and sculpture, and his company became a leader in that field. While the set of photos contained in this album have faded somewhat, one can not but be impressed with the sharpness of elements in the image. There is a painterliness to the compositions: the women and their dress might be the primary subject, but many of the images also feature floral decoration and Alpine backgrounds.

        Transactions and Proceedings of the New Zealand Institute, 1868-1872

      Wellington: James Hughes, 1869-, 1873. Five volumes, quarto, illustrations and plates, many folding and in colour; a handsome set finely bound in scarlet morocco, gilt, gilt arms on upper boards, all edges gilt. A finely-bound set of the {i Transactions of the New Zealand Institute}: a comprehensive record of the scientific endeavours undertaken in New Zealand in the years 1868-1872. The New Zealand Institute, now known as the Royal Society of New Zealand, evolved from the unification of five regional scientific organisations from Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury, Otago and Westland. Established under an Act of Parliament with a government grant of £500, the Institute provided a coordinated means of scientific communication through its publication of the {i Transactions}. The editor was James Hector, a pioneer explorer, geologist and natural scientist, who held the post of manager of the institute for thirty-five years following its inception. This collection represents the first five years of the institute's proceedings. The scope of the subjects covered is staggering and reflects the vigour and richness of scientific and intellectual life in this small community at the time, which was especially enriched by the participation in rigorous scientific debates by enthusiastic and learned amateurs as well as academics and professionals. As well as every possible scientific field, the {i Transactions} are particularly rich in information about the Maori people. This is a most attractive set of this important publication.

        Haematopus Longirotris: Gould (Pied Oystercatcher)

      London 1869 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Haematopus Longirotris: Gould, from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Australia" is in excellent condition, measuring 14.25" x 21", and magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called White-breasted Oystercatcher or Pied Oystercatcher, these wading birds are expertly hand-colored with white undersides, black heads and chests and black and white wings. They have red irises and orange eye circles and beaks. These Oystercatchers are illustrated on a rocky coastline, similar to their natural habitats. 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. The price on this listing is the exact hammer price from the East Bay Auction (held March, 2010) NOT INCLUDING THE PREMIUM.

        Sombre Gallinule (Gallinula Tenebrosa)

      The Author 1840-, London 1869 - Hand-coloured lithograph (360 x 540 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. The Sombre Gallinule was encountered by Gould in the upper Hunter and also on the banks of the Murry in South Australia. 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).

        Zosterops Rendovae, Tristram (Rendova White-eye)

      London 1869 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While in Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented “Birds of Asia”. “The Birds of New Guinea” was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the “The Birds of New Guinea”, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's “Birds of Paradise” (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the “The Birds of New Guinea”, which, like the “Birds of Asia”, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Zosterops Rendovae, Tristram, is in mint condition. Measuring 21.5" x 14.75", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Rendova or Grey-throated White-Eyes, these birds are expertly hand-colored with vibrant green-yellow bodies. They are illustrated on a branch among vibrantly colored purple flowers. Precise lines define and detail each feather and give these birds definition and dimension.

        Shining Cuckoo (Chrysococcyx Lucidus)

      The Author 1840-, London 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).

        Otis Australasianus: Gould (Australian Bustrard)

Commonly called Australian Bustards or Bush Turkey, these nomadic ground birds are expertly hand-colored with white necks and undersides, brown and black feathers and a black crown. Precise lines define and detail each feather and the intricate patterns of their wings and necks. 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”.

        Bird's Eye View of Loda, Iroquois Co. Illinois 1869.

      - Chicago: Chicago Lith. Co., 1869. 22" X 17". Good plus. Mildly age toned, more so about the edges. Bright, nice original print of this rare color lithograph of this small central Illinois town, drawn by A. Ruger (Chicago artist whose printed name appears at lower left). What's fascinating about this particular specimen is that's it's extra-illustrated: That is, some early owner or more likely the artist or publisher has neatly pencilled in two columns of building identifications and addresses in a miniscule hand in the blank areas at lower left (13 structures) and lower right (13 structures), with corresponding numbers pencilled alongside those buildings in the image. Six structures are identified in print in two small columns at immediate right and left of the title, thus these additions begin with number "7" and go up through number "30." He has also neatly pencilled in other geographic features unidentified in the image ("Leckie's Lake," "Large Dam," "Picnic Grounds," "Oak St.," "99 miles Chi," "Cooper Shop," even a boat in the lake noted as "Petrell," etc.) Along the top blank margin he pencils in "EAST" in a large Times Roman script, in the left margin "NORTH" and in the right margin "South." Immediately below the printed title, he also adds "The Loda Distillery Employs 100 men, consumes 1,000 bushels of grain / and pays over $2,000 Tax to Government per day." It's our belief these were additions meant for a projected second printing -- which never came to pass. These handwritten additions thus constitute a one-of-a-kind record of these structures, an exhaustive inventory of this town's 1869 structures. In addition to this unique feature, this print has an interesting provenance: It comes from the collection of Illinois' former two-term senator, ADLAI E. STEVENSON III (b. 1930), to whom it was handed down within the family. The likelihood is strong this print originated with his great-grandfather, ADLAI E. STEVENSON I (1835-1914), who served as vice president under Grover Cleveland. In 1852, when Adlai I was 16 years old, the Stevenson family moved from Kentucky to Bloomington, Illinois -- 42 miles west of Loda -- and the Stevenson family has been intimately connected with Bloomington ever since. It's perfectly reasonable they would have wanted this bird's eye view of their neighboring town -- which Adlai I then handed down to his son, who handed it down to his son Adlai II (governor of Illinois), and from there to the current Adlai. An extremely unusual copy of an exceptionally scarce print. Framed in a vintage (not contemporary with the print, but circa 1970) 1" wooden frame under a single new cream matte (overall dimensions 29½" X 23½"), making for a clean, simple presentation. John W. Reps (in "Views & Viewmakers of Urban America") shows only the Library of Congress copy. HEBERT 166. REPS 900.
