        Bueto Vulgaris, Bechst (Common Buzzard)

      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 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. This hand-colored lithograph, Bueto Vulgaris, measures 21.5” x 14.75” and is in excellent condition with faint foxing throughout. This bird of prey, called the Common Buzzard, is expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown and white. The precise lines define each feather from head to tail. The intricate patterns of the plumage are also well detailed as they change from the underbelly to the wings. The Common Buzzard is perched on a branch, centered as the focal point of this impressive lithograph.

        Pitta Novae-Guineae (New Guinea Pitta)

      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 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, Pitta Novae-Guineae, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in excellent condition. These birds, commonly called New Guinea Pitta, are expertly hand-colored in vibrant shades of green, blue, white and red with black heads and yellow collars. The New Guinea Pitta in this lithograph are shown in a rocky habitat, one picking at a shell with its beak. The precise lines detail and define their feathers and plumage and give them dimension.

        The Narcissus: Its History and Culture

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)

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.

        Money for All: Or the Economic Science of Money

      Kansas City, MO Ramsey, Millett & Hudson 1875. "National bank notes retired - legal tenders the only paper money - prosperity for every industry." - subtitle. "This little work makes no pretensions to literary merit. It was written, by the author, at intervals snatched from his other occupations as a farmer... The leading facts stated, and the great and fundamental truths of the science of money enunciated, are in accordance with the true principles of Political Economy when applied to the present conditions of America, and are believed to be sound and incontrovertible." - from Preface. Contains the following five essays: As long as America is so heavily indebted to European Nations it will be impossible to have a good and uniform currency upon a gold basis; Specie-based currency with the shackles of gold redemption and the national bank system are anti-republican and dangerous to human liberty; A second system of paper money freed from the shackles of specie redemption and based upon the faith of the nation; How contraction and gold redemption will affect the debtors and tax-payers; Industry and productions stimulated by a greater volume of currency.
