        Lophophorus Impeyanus (Himalayan Monal Pheasant)

      New York 1872 - Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists’ Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection. Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot’s career, he published two volumes of “A Monograph of the Phasianidae” from 1870-1872. The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot’s “A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants” display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints. This lithograph, Lophophorus Impeyanus, measures 23” x 19”, and is in mint condition. Commonly called Himalayan Monal Pheasants, these birds are expertly hand-colored, the male in vibrant shades of green, red, yellow, purple and blue throughout its body, with orange tail-feathers. The female is less boldly colored save for her blue eye circle, but her feather patterns are intricate and well detailed. The small chicks also have brown coloring with reddish crowns. This intimate image of the pheasant family is well detailed, as they are shown within their natural habitat, full of lush color.

        A Handbook to the Birds of Egypt.

      London: John Van Voorst, 1872. - 8vo., (9 2/8 x 6 inches). 14 FINE hand-coloured lithographs by Keulemans. Contemporary half tan calf, gilt, pink cloth (endleaves a bit spotted). Provenance: The supra libros, engraved armorial bookplate of Sir James Lamont (1828-1913), 14th laird of Knockdow, on the front paste-down, and signature on the title-page. First edition. Shelley, the nephew of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, made three trips to the Nile and many of the birds depicted here are illustrated for the first time by Keulemans who began his career as a taxidermist providing stuffed birds to the State Museum of Natural History at Leiden. The director of that museum encouraged Keulemans to pursue his love of natural history, where he obtained a scientific appointment after an expedition to West Africa in 1865 and 1866. His accomplishments in illustration came to the notice of Richard Bowdler Sharpe, later a director of the British Museum, who encouraged him to move to England. Keulemans quickly achieved wide recognition and established himself as the most popular bird artist of the late Victorian period. He regularly provided illustrations for "The Ibis" and "The Proceedings of the Zoological Society". He illustrated many important bird books including Buller's "A History of the Birds of New Zealand" (1873), Shelley's "Monograph of the Sun-Birds" (1876-1880), William Vincent Legge's "Birds of Ceylon" (1880), Daniel Giraud Elliot's "Monograph of the Hornbills" (1887-1892), Richard Bowdler Sharpe's "Monograph on Kingfishers" (1868-1871), Henry Seebohm's "Monograph on Thrushes" (1902), and Osbert Salvin's "Biologia Centrali-Americana" (1879-1904). From the distinguished library of Sir James Lamont, who was a seasoned traveler: "Among the voyages undertaken by the late Sir James Lamont, Bart of Knockdow (a brief sketch of whose career was published yesterday), were visits to his river estate in Trinidad. Soon after succeeding to this estate, in 1850, he crossed the Cape to Trinidad in a coolie-ship, which was wrecked in the Boca de Monos, without loss of life. During the next few years he made three more voyages to the West Indies, as well as to the United States and Canada. He also visited Egypt, Greece, and Turkey. In 1858 7 1859, in his yacht Ginvera, a schooner of 142 tons, he made voyages to Spitzbergon, and in 1861 he published an account of his sporting adventures in northern seas under the title of "Season with the Sea-Horses". In 1869 Mr. Lamont built the Diana, a three-masted Schooner of 251 tons, with auxiliary steam, specially designed for Arctic travel, and in that year and the two following years he made further expeditions to the Polar seas. An account of these voyages appeared in 1876 under the title of "Yatching in the Artic Seas." Mr. Lamont made his last voyage to the West Indies in 1889" (Obituary "The Scotsman" Thursday 31st July 1913). Nisen IVB 872; Anker 469; Fine Bird Books, p.108; Wood, p.566; Zimmer, p.588.

        Map of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway and Connections; Map of the Mexico National Railway, Including Its Proposed Extensions and Connections, Showing Also the Relative Position of Mexico to the United States the West Indies, and the Adjacent Oceans

      National Railway Publications Comp. 1872 - Albert von Motz Map of the Denver and Rio Grande Railway and Connections; Map of the Mexico National Railway, Including Its Proposed Extensions and Connections, Showing Also the Relative Position of Mexico to the United States the West Indies, and the Adjacent Oceans Philadelphia: National Railway Publication Comps., 1872 The Denver & Rio Grande railroad was established in 1870 by soldier and railroad builder General William Jackson Palmer as a narrow gauge railway system with the grand plan of connecting Denver with Mexico City. The line was notable for its many engineering achievements, including the highest railroad beds in the United States and the first large-scale application of narrow gauge road. At one time the railroad had more narrow gauge track than any other line in North America. Palmer was one of the few U.S. entrepreneurs who desired to connect the country in a north-south orientation and was especially singular in his desire to extend his railroad into Mexico, a goal which he eventually accomplished by working in Mexico itself. Although the railroad was eventually absorbed by the Union Pacific, its final achievements were noteworthy. It ran the last passenger train in the West after the creation of Amtrak, and its scenic trains operate even today in Colorado and New Mexico. The report with its detailed maps to stockholders is by no means a dry corporate production. In fact, it is an enthusiastic promotional of Colorado by a passionate visionary. Palmer declares: “The idea of a north and south railway, following the eastern base of the Rocky Mountains from the principal city of the new West-Denver-southward to Mexico, arose from a conviction that this belt of country had especial advantages in its location, climate, and natural resources.” Palmer sets forth the advantages and potential in the region, including mining, stock raising, agriculture, natural resources, and towns waiting to spring forth. For example, he warmly promotes the growing town of Colorado Springs established by him only two years earlier. His vision of a new West opened up large areas to settlement that had been by-passed by other railroads. Not immune however to potential problems, Palmer devotes a large portion of this report to defending and explaining the advantages of narrow gauge railroad construction. General William Jackson Palmer (1836-1910) was a distinguished Union cavalry officer and railroad executive. After the war, he served as an official of the Union Pacific Railroad’s Eastern Division, which, became the Kansas City Pacific and later merged into the Union Pacific. In 1870, he became president of the Denver and Rio Grande and completed its line westward by 1883. During the 1880s, he organized and constructed Mexican railroads, and two lines from Mexico City to the border were completed by 1890. The maps alone make this report valuable and important and illustrate Palmer’s sweeping vision. The first map, showing the road from Denver to the Mexican border, illustrates the line as conceived in the U.S., and was also probably handed out as a separate promotional piece, not only for investors but also for potential settlers. The second map (still bound in the wrappers) shows the Company’s lands that are available for settlement and development. The third map (still bound in the wrappers) demonstrates the difficulty of the grades and terrain that must be overcome. The final map is a grand production showing the U.S. and Mexico with the projected route to join the two countries and the nexus of international and national trade routes that meet the terminus at Vera Cruz. This last map, which is rare and little-known, demonstrates graphically Palmer’s plan to tie Denver to the rest of the world.

        Originalt brev.

      Originalt håndskrevet brev, dateret 10/11 1872. Kbhvn. Med fuld signatur og modtager forneden. Brevet har fire foldemærker og en arkivannotation i øverste venstre hjørne, men er ellers meget velholdt.. Fantastisk brev fra J.P. Jacobsen til sin forlægger Frederik Hegel, der fuldt ud lyder: 'Jeg mener at den nye Bog af Darwin bør hedde: "Menneskeslægtens Oprindelse og Parringsvalget." hvilket ogsaa er den ordrette Oversættelse undtagen for det første Ords Vedkommende, men: "Menneskets Oprindelse" lyder saa ilde. // Med udmærket Højagtelse J.P. Jacobsen.'** J.P. Jacobsen, der var meget naturalistisk interesseret og skrev prisopgave om alger, studerede grundigt Darwins nye og dengang overordentligt kontroversielle tanker, og påtog sig mammutopgaven at oversætte Darwins værker til dansk. I 1872 udkom 'Arternes Oprindelse'. Titlen på den næste store bog krævede dog lidt finpudsning: Den endelige titel blev 'Menneskets Afstamning og Parringsvalget', der udkom 1874-1875. Og imens skrev han mesterværkerne Mogens og Fru Marie Grubbe

A very clean and bright copy.ìKneeland [1821-1888], a professor of zoology and physiology and secretary of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from its founding in 1865 until 1878, produced one of the better guide books to the Yosemite region. It is an especially attractive book due to the inclusion of an excellent series of mounted photographic images. The book is based on the authorís first visit to Yosemite Valley in July 1870. In addition to serving as a guide book, it forms a narrative of his trip from Boston to Yosemite and return. Kneeland made every effort to obtain current and accurate information and each of the later editions of the guide incorporates new material. The second edition adds ëThe Yosemite in 1872í and ëThe Recent Earthquake in Yosemite.í Though not identified by name, the account of the 1872 earthquake and much of ëThe Yosemite in 1872í is based on information indirectly supplied by John Muir.

        Through The Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1872 Illustrated by John Tenniel. First edition, first printing, with "wade" instead of "wabe" to page 21. Finely bound in full crimson Morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, with five raised bands to the spine, lettered in gilt, spine compartments and bands ruled in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, triple ruled circle panel with an illustration of the Red Queen to the front board, triple ruled circle panel with an illustration of the White Queen to the rear panel, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, green endpapers with floral pattern stamped in gilt, original cloth bound in at rear. About fine, with a former owner's 1872 inscription to the half-title, a few hints of scattered and light spotting to the otherwise fresh pages. A beautiful copy of a scarce book in a fine Morocco binding. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Just as Alice relies on the imagery of playing cards, Through the Looking Glass is laden with chess imagery; Alice steps into the fantasy world as a white pawn on a giant chess board. While making her way to be crowned queen, she runs into many of Carroll's beloved characters, including Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and the Red Queen. Additionally, this text employs a mirror motif, with many backward-printed texts and scenarios that appear to be the reverse of scenes from Alice. Throughout the novel, Carroll includes nonsense poetry, including the playful "Jabberwocky." Like Alice, Through the Looking Glass is illustrated by John Tenniel. Carroll originally intended to write this sequel as early as 1866, but had trouble persuading Tenniel to illustrate it. Writer and artist had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism: just as the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited. Tenniel demanded the removal of a character that was too difficult to illustrate, whereas Carroll replaced Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Ett Ã¥r i stilla hafvet reseminnen frÃ¥n Patagonien , Chili, Peru, Californien, Britiska Columbia och Oceanien

      Stockholm: Lith. Art. Anstalt, 1872. Quarto, with 12 tinted lithographic plates; a very good copy in original decorated boards, backstrip and endpapers renewed. Scarce and finely illustrated voyage account, including handsome lithographed portraits of the Hawaiian monarchs Kamehameha the Fourth and Kamehameha the Fifth. The author, Adolf Ekelöf, was a young Swedish lieutenant who sailed on the English frigate Zealous to the Pacific in 1867. In addition to descriptions of California and British Columbia, this book is particularly interesting for its Pacific material, with significant entries on Hawaii, Tahiti, and other South Sea Islands. Unusually, Ekelof provides both the music and words to an Hawaiian Folk Hymn and a Tahitian National Melody. The lithographic plates are well rendered - some are clearly produced from portrait photographs while others are based on marine and landscape sketches. Of the twelve plates, seven are of Hawaiian and Tahitian subjects. In addition to the plate of the Hawaiian monarchs mentioned above, the book includes portraits of Queen Pomare of Tahiti and a coastal scene at Waikiki.
