        Turnix Africanus, Desf (Andalusian Turnix)

      London 1873 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Turnix Africanus, Desf, from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Great Britain" (1862-1873) is in very good condition with light foxing throughout. Measuring 14.5" x 21.25", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Andalusian Turnix or Little Button Quail, these birds are expertly hand colored in shades of brown and pale orange. Precise lines define and detail each line and feather, creating the intricate patterns of their plumage. These birds are seen resting among a lush green landscape. John Gould 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. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Gould was especially proud of this sumptuous work “Birds of Great Britain” describing the volumes as a return to his old love of native birds. Unlike in earlier publications, however, the illustrations incorporate more nests, eggs, and young than the earlier works, with a focus on landscapes and family groupings. The ornithologist and his collaborators took more of an interest in creating accurate, appropriate settings, and included more plants and fully delineated environments, resulting in a number of lavish scenes of action and interaction. Gould's rightful pride in these illustrations was reflected in his preface explanation of their coloring: " every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were colored by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Gould's pride in “The Birds of Great Britain” was matched by its public success.

      n.p, n.d. 8vo. . Small corner of board missing, well away from text, else fine . Lodge (1873-1909) was the son of the eminent Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. A graduate of Harvard, he studied abroad and settled in Washington as secretary to his father. Henry Adams thought him one of the great minds of his time. He served with distinction in the Spanish-American War, returning to Congressional duties and contributing poems to various periodicals. Before his untimely death from a heart attack, he published several volumes of poetry and two poetic dramas, Cain, and Herakles, on which his fame rests. These, noted the DAB, "do not suffer in comparison with any others in American literature. A half-dozen of his sonnets belong with the best in our language."

        Jack Brass, Emperor of England.

      T. Pettit & Co. 1873 A few small tears & creases to fore-edges with sl. loss to lower corner of first 2 leaves. Orig. light bown printed paper wrappers, sewn as issued; sl. dusted with some sl. wear to head & tail of spine, corners sl. creased. 12pp.5 copies only on Copac. Miller & Matthews B3.1. The first edition of Jefferies' first separately published work of fiction. A satire directed at the 'chief of capitalists'; a guide on how to use capital to become an Emperor of England. It is described by Edward Thomas as 'a jaunty, humourously intended by-product of his Conservatism'. 'This Squib' write Miller and Matthews, 'is another in Jefferies' series of short works published at his own expense in the hope of a chance bestseller drawing attention to his name, but at a risk of relatively small capital outlay'. Jefferies had asked Macmillan to put their name to it but had to settle for the lesser-known imprint of T. Pettitt & Co.

        Eared Grebe, Podiceps auritus (Linn)

      London 1873 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Eared Grebe, Podiceps auritus (Linn), from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in very good condition with faint foxing on the right edge. Measuring 14.75" x 21.5", and magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail, These birds are called Eared Grebe or Black-necked Grebes due to their golden plumage that sprays from their heads during breeding. As illustrated, one of these dynamic birds is breeding and the other is shown in non-breeding plumage, with a gray underside and a brown top-side. John Gould 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. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

        African Lepidoptera, being descriptions of new species.

      - London, Longmans, Green & Co. (1873-1875 ?). 3 parts. 4to. pp. 16, with 18 (12 handcoloured) plates. Unbound in original printed wrappers. Junk describes the work in his JUNK RARA II pp. 136 as follows: "Part 1 (February 1873). Coloured plates 1-6 (37 figures) with letterpress, pages 1-8. Contents: Papilio constantinus, evombar. Pieris manahari, antsianaka, cebron, capricornus, rhodanus. Eronia vohemara, verulanus. Amauris nossima. Salamis anteva. Junoniakowara. Acraea satis, pentapolis, peneleos, polydestes, pharsalus. Part 2 (Sept. 1874). Coloured plates 7-12 (41 figures) with letterpress, page 9-16. Contents: Acraea manadaza, masamba, masonala, hova. Godartia crossleyi, trajanus, Neptis biafra. Euryphene camarensis, ribensis, comus, nivaria, porphirion. Harma capella, cyclades, ciceronis. Mycalesis vola, ankova, iboina, antahala. Part 3 (1875 ?). Black plates 13-18 (35 figures) without letterpress. Contents: Papilio colonna, philonoë, andronicus, Acraea cydonis, sambavae, rabbaiea, satis. Godartia wakefieldii. Diadema usambara. Charaxes hadnanus, andara, andriba, analeva, andranadorus. Mycalesis avelona, Erebia rakoto, ankaratra, passandava, n.sp.? Part 1 and 2 contain figures and descriptions of new species chiefly from Madagascar, then from the Camaroons, Old Calabar and Ribé (East Africa). The descriptions are copied (literally) from Ward's 2 papers (published in 'Entomologist's Monthly Magazine' volumes 6-9 and 8-9): 'Descriptions of new species of Diurnal Lepidopt. From Madagascar'. and 'Descriptions of new species of African Diurnal Lepidoptera'. The second paper is continued also through volume 10 of the 'E.E.M.' and I have no doubt that the species described in the continuation are those figured there in the 3rd part, which has no letterpress. This very beautiful work is highly important for the knowledge of the East African Fauna, as it contains 55 new species. Ward has not written any other work and also the "A.L." were - perhaps owing to the death of the author - soon interrupted. The book may be considered as the rarest of all modern works on Butterflies. My copy is the first I have ever seen, though I have searched for the book for more than 20 years. But, what is the chief thing: my copy is an unicum as it includes a third part quite unknown till today, which, as it seems, had never been in the trade; for neither are the plates coloured nor has it a letterpress, and the numbers of the plates as well as the name of the butterflies are not printed but only neatly written by pencil". We presume that Junk was wrong when he thought his copy to be an unicum, as we have sold a few copies in recent years. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Heart of Africa : Three Years' Travels and Adventures in the Unexplored Regions of Central Africa, From 1868 to 1871

      London, Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1873-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Octavo. xvi, errata, map, 559p., ill. pl.; x., map, 521p., ill. pl. Bound in modern green leather. Green cloth boards. Gilt lettering on red cloth label. Good binding and cover. Minimal shelfwear. Cut to title page bottom, most likely owners signature removal. Clean, unmarked pages. Maps are in excellent condition. Hilmy II, p. 225; Gay, 2568. Czech, p. 144. Georg August Schweinfurth, was German botanist and traveler who explored the region of the upper Nile River basin known as the Baḥr al Ghazāl and discovered the Uele River, a tributary of the Congo. On his return to Berlin in 1866, from his first venture into Africa, he obtained a grant permitting him to conduct a botanical exploration in the Baḥr al Ghazāl region. In January of 1869 he went back by way of Suakin to Khartoum, where he began his ascent of the White Nile River and then ventured into the southwestern Sudan region with a party of ivory traders. He visited the Bongo and Mangbetu peoples as well as the allegedly cannibalistic Naim-Naim, who filed their teeth to points. He also provided the first authoritative account of the Congo Pygmies. Schweinfurth crossed the Nile-Congo watershed and, in March 1870, reached the westward-flowing Uele River, an affluent of the Congo, which he mistook for a part of the Niger River. His discovery of the Uele, however, helped toward a final estimate of the extent of the Nile system.

Cagle 171, Vicaire 297, Bitting 135, Oberle 238.Though due to the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war, Dumas never saw the publication of his great work on cuisine, it remains a monument to a truly bracing love of food - an unlike most of his novels, but all accounts he actually wrote the whole thing himself.

Though due to the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war, Dumas never saw the publication of his great work on cuisine, it remains a monument to a truly bracing love of food - an unlike most of his novels, but all accounts he actually wrote the whole thing himself. A magnificent mix of encyclopedia, recipe book, anecdote and nonsense. He has Jacques Coeur bringing back the first turkey's from Turkey in 1432. Charmingly, the entry for madeleine reminds him of a "petite aventure" that he recounts. On truffles: "We asked the wise about the truffle and after two thousand years of discussion they responded as on the first day: We don't know. We asked the truffle herself and she responded: Eat me and worship God." Size: 4to (quarto). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo.

        Cyanecula Leucocyana (White-Throated Bluebreast)

      London 1873 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Cyanecula Leucocyana, from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Great Britain" (1862-1873) is in excellent condition. Measuring 21.25" x 14.5", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called White-Throated Bluebreasts, this intimate scene illustrates adult birds feeding their young. All are expertly hand-colored with intricate patterns in differing shades of brown. The male is colored with bright blue neck and white throat with black, white and rufous collars. The scene is set in a field with rocks and delicate pink flowers. John Gould 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. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Gould was especially proud of this sumptuous work “Birds of Great Britain” describing the volumes as a return to his old love of native birds. Unlike in earlier publications, however, the illustrations incorporate more nests, eggs, and young than the earlier works, with a focus on landscapes and family groupings. The ornithologist and his collaborators took more of an interest in creating accurate, appropriate settings, and included more plants and fully delineated environments, resulting in a number of lavish scenes of action and interaction. Gould's rightful pride in these illustrations was reflected in his preface explanation of their coloring: " every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were colored by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Gould's pride in “The Birds of Great Britain” was matched by its public success.
