        The Narcissus: Its History and Culture

      London: L. Reeve & Co., , 1875. First edition. Original Cloth. Very Good. 8vo (24.5 x 16.5 cm) Original cloth boards with gilt title and author on spine and Narcissus on cover, spine slightly sunned. Marble end papers. Collation: [ix]-xvi [1]-95pp + 48 hand-colored, lithographic plates. Excellent study on the genus Narcissus with beautifully executed lithographic plates by Burbidge with contemporary hand coloring. This is a very good copy in original cloth. ?"Burbidge, Frederick William Thomas (1847?-1905), horticultural writer and explorer, was born at Wymeswold, Leicestershire, on 21 March 1847, the son of Thomas Burbidge, farmer and fruit grower, and his wife, Mary Spencer. He was educated at village schools and entered the gardens of the Royal Horticultural Society at Cheswick as a student in 1868, proceeding in the same year to the Royal Gardens, Kew. Here he showed skill as a draughtsman and was partly employed in making drawings of plants in the herbarium. Leaving Kew in 1870 he joined the staff of Garden magazine where he stayed until 1877, writing under the pseudonym Veronica. He also wrote for The Floral Magazine. During this period he published a number of works including Cool Orchids and How to Grow Them (1874), [Narcissus: Its History and Culture(1875)]and Cultivated Plants, their Propagation and Improvement (1877). These works drew much appreciation from contemporaries including Gladstone. Many of the plates included were drawn by Burbidge himself. In 1877 he was sent by the nursery firm James Veitch & Sons as a collector to Borneo. He was absent for two years, during which time he also visited Johore, Brunei, and the Sulu Islands. He brought back many remarkable plants, especially: pitcher plants, such as Nepenthes rajah and N. bicalcarata; orchids, such as Cypripedium laurenceanum, Dendrobium burbidgei, andAërides burbidgei; and ferns, such as Alsophila burbidgei and Polypodium burbidgei. The chronicle of his journey was published in 1880 as The Gardens of the Sun, or, A Naturalist's Journal on the Mountains and in the Forests and Swamps of Borneo and the Sulu Archipelago. The first set of the dried specimens brought back by him numbered nearly a thousand species, and was presented by Veitch to the Kew herbarium. Sir Joseph Hooker named the scitamineous Burbidgea nitida ?'in recognition of Burbidge's eminent services to horticulture, whether as a collector in Borneo, or as author of Cultivated Plants, their Propagation and Improvement, a work which should be in every gardener's library?' (Botanical Magazine, 1879, tab 6403). Though of only moderate ability as a cultivator, Burbidge was noted for his horticultural writings and expert draughtsmanship.?" ( G. S. Boulger, rev. Alexander Goldbloom- ODNB)

        Criniger Chloris (Moluccan bulbul)

      London 1875 - 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 and 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 about 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 is 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 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 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, Criniger Chloris, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. Illustrated are two birds, commonly called Moluccan bulbul's, perched on a high branch. The birds are expertly hand-colored in brilliant shades of yellow. The lithograph is extremely well detailed as each feather and characteristic of these birds well defined and shaded, diving the birds dimension. They are set among an abstract background with colors of the setting sun.

        Harpyopsis Novae Guineae [New Guinea Eagle]

      London: Taylor and Francis for Henry Sotheran & Co, 1875. Hand-coloured lithograph by Gould and William Hart, printed by the Mintern Brothers. Very good condition. A beautiful print from Gould's "Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia." This plate is from one of Gould's most exotic works, The Birds of New Guinea , which consists of an extensive series of beautiful plates of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers, and hawk-owls. It is his last full-scale work. Gould prepared the first twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the work was finished posthumously by Sharpe. A broadside "Address to the Subscribers" of The Birds of New Guinea issued by Sotheran and Co. announced: "With respect...to the Birds of New Guinea , we have the pleasure to announce that, having purchased the entire stock and copyrights of Mr. Gould's Magnificent series of Works, we have made immediate preparations for completing those left unfinished; and having retained the services of Mr. Gould's entire staff of artists and colourists, we are confident that the work will be as well performed as during the life of the Author. Mr. Hart...will superintend the whole of the illustrations as heretofore; while the letterpress will be edited by Mr. Bowdler Sharpe, of the British Museum, whose name will be sufficient assurance that nothing will be wanting in this department."
