         THE BEAUTIES OF FLORA, WITH BOTANIC AND POETIC ILLUSTRATIONS: BEING A SELECTION OF FLOWERS DRAWN FROM NATURE, ARRANGED EMBLEMATICALLY, WITH DIRECTIONS FOR COLOURING THEM

      Eliza Eve Gleadall 1834-36, Heath Hall, near Wakefield - Vol. I: 347 x 252 mm. (13 5/8 x 9 7/8"); vol. II: 365 x 267 mm. (14 3/8 x 10 1/2"). Two volumes. Privately printed (for approximately 124 subscribers) FIRST EDITION. Original patterned green cloth with gilt embellishment on front cover, rebacked. Titles with flower garland and 41 LOVELY HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHED PLATES. Front free endpapers with ownership inscriptions of Mary and Jane Templar. Five names added to list of subscribers in a neat copperplate hand. Dunthorne 123; Nissen 715. Bindings a bit soiled, extremities rubbed, but the rebacked volumes quite solid. Fore edge of dedication leaf and one plate a little frayed, occasional minor stains or smudges, but generally an excellent copy internally, mostly clean and fresh, with very richly colored plates. These volumes feature information on the symbolic meaning in the Victorian language of flowers, on poetry inspired by flowers, and on the colors and techniques one should use for botanical illustration. But apart from this content, the set for us today is of interest because of the beautifully colored plates. The engravings are not arranged by name or scientific class, but by the sentiment the flower represents (Passionflower relates Religious Superstition; Lily of the Valley to Purity and Return of Happiness), and each illustration is accompanied by two to four pages of letterpress. After giving some background information on the origin of the flower's name, recounting legends or anecdotes, and quoting verse, Miss Gleadall tells aspiring artists what colors to use when painting any of the various subjects, and offers advice on shading and finishing. This is the only work published by Miss Gleadall, an instructor at a school for young ladies in Yorkshire. Flower painting was considered an appropriate pastime--or "chaste recreation" in the author's words--for well-bred young women. Former owners the Misses Templar apparently used this work as intended: tiny spots of paint on the verso of some plates suggest the book was being consulted while the would-be artist tried to reproduce its results. This work is not common, and when it appears in the marketplace, it is typically in poor condition.

         Les feuilles d'automne

      Eugène Renduel 1834 - - Eugène Renduel, Paris 1834, In-8 (13,5x21,5cm), XVI, 320pp., relié. - Seconde édition s'intégrant dans la collection des oeuvres complètes de Hugo éditée entre 1832 et 1840. Les volumes de cette édition collective étaient comme pour cet exemplaire vendus séparément. L'édition originale de 1832 n'avait été tirée qu'à 500 exemplaires, elle demeure fort rare. Joli envoi de Romain Joseph de Brigode (homme politique sous l'Empire et la seconde restauration) sous la forme d'une poésie manuscrite finement à la plume sur la page de garde avant le faux-titre : "Don d'amitié. Comme on voit, feuille à feuille, au souffle de l'automne, Les bois se dépouiller de leur verte couronne, Ainsi s'en vont nos jours. Mais la douce amitié reste toujours la même, Et je sens, cher Victor, qu'aujourd'hui si je t'aime, Je t'aimerais toujours. Le 20 Juillet 1837" Reliure en plein veau aubergine glacé strictement d'époque. Les reliures en pleine peau réalisées à l'époque des oeuvres de Hugo sont très rares, surtout quand il s'agit de reliure de qualité, comme pour cet exemplaire précieux. Dos orné d'une frise centrale en long et de deux fers romantiques l'encadrant. Titre doré. Plats frappés à froid d'une grande plaque ornementale caractéristiques des motifs Restauration. Au centre du premier plat, les initiales en lettres dorées V.F., dans lesquelles on reconnaîtra le Victor auquel est adressé le poème de Romain de Brigode. Tranches dorées. Quelques traces de frottement, un coin émoussé. Rousseurs éparses, dans les marges, sur un papier demeuré blanc. Très bel exemplaire, magnifique témoignage d'une oeuvre célèbre de Victor Hugo en reliure romantique enrichie d'un envoi autographe particulier. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] This second edition is part of Hugo's collection of complete works published between 1832 and 1840. The volumes of this collective edition were, as for this example, sold separately. The first edition of 1832 had been printed at only 500 copies; it is very rare. Pretty autograph dedication of the author of Romain de Brigode (politician under the Empire and the second restoration) in the form of a handwritten poem on the cover page before the false title: XVI, 320pp. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         1834. Fore-edge painting of Greenwich Hospital London. Poems by Samuel Rogers.

      Cadell, Strand & E. Moxon, London 1834 - A rarity, the fore-edge painting reflects verses within the book on Greenwich Hospital of London (permanent home for retired sailors of the Royal Navy). Often fore-edge paintings are general in nature and do not reflect the text. In addition, J.M.W. Turner illustrated the same verses within (engraved after his sketch).

         A manual of the ornithology of the United States and Canada. The land birds. (together with) A manual of the ornithology of the Unites States and Canada. The water birds

      Hilliard and Brown; Hilliard, Gray and Co., Cambridge 1834 - With 114 beautiful woodcut text illustrations. Original publisher's cloth with paper spine labels, binding of second work unglued at front and spine; some light browning (heavier to preliminaries and endleaves) and scattered foxing. From the library of Dr. Robert Peter, with his book labels and ownership inscription to both volumes. First edition of "one of the earliest landmarks in the history of American ornithology." Written by one of the leading naturalists of the time, this work covers hundreds of land and water birds found on the North American continent, providing detailed descriptions of physical aspects, as well as of nesting and feeding habits. Based partially upon Nuttall's own observations and partly on the writings of Audubon, Wilson and others, Nuttall wrote the manual after having traveled extensively through North America.Nuttall (1786-1859), a distinguished botanist and zoologist, later became curator of the botanical gardens at Harvard University. While traveling the route taken by Lewis and Clark, accompanied by the English Botanist John Bradbury, he discovered several previously unknown plants, afterwards writing his North American Sylva, the first book to include all of the trees of North America. Several bird species have been named after Nuttall, including the Piccoides nuttalii, by his friend William Gambel, and the Pica nuttalli and Phalaenoptilus nuttalli by James Audubon.Robert Peter (b.1805) was born in England and settled in Pennsylvania in 1821. Initially he devoted his attention to botany, founding a botanical society, and becoming associated in the organization of the Philosophical society and the Philological institute of Pittsburgh. He was first a professor of chemistry at Transylvania University, then entered the medical department, graduating in 1834 and becoming professor of chemistry and pharmacy there. During the greater part of the civil war he was employed as acting assistant surgeon in charge of the United States general hospitals in Lexington. In 1865 he was appointed professor of chemistry and experimental natural philosophy at Kentucky University, which in 1866 acquired the Agricultural and mechanical college of Kentucky, in which he remained until 1887, when he was made emeritus.

         Atlas of the Counties of England from Actual Surveys Made from the years 1817-33

      London: Greenwood & Co.(1834). First and only edition. Folio (640 x 395 mm.), contemporary publisher's half morocco, cloth boards, gilt title to upper boards. With blind and gilt compartments to spine and gilt embossed title. Engraved title-page containing an early wash coloured map of England and Wales, 46 double-page early wash coloured engraved maps by J. and J. Neale, J. and C. Walker and others. Those of Lancashire and Lincolnshire shaved upper and lower margins as is often the case due to their size. Some light offsetting otherwise AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE.; Following the extensive work carried out by Christopher and John Greenwood on the series of large scale county surveys a reduced sized atlas was planned. It was advertised in 1828 to appear in four parts at three guineas per part and began as early as 1829, the date recorded on 11 of the plates. There were to be 46 plates, all at the scale of one-third of an inch to a mile. They ran into financial difficulties towards the end and had to take in partners to finish in 1834. 'For detail, general accuracy and balance allied to high quality engraving and colouring these sheets are probably the finest ever single sheet maps of the counties' (Carroll). The maps are reductions of Greenwood's large scale maps of the counties as stated with the exception of those of Bucks, Cambridge, Hereford, Hertford, Norfolk and Oxford which they did not survey. Studies of individual counties show many were improved with new detail on a regular basis. Closer examination shows that this example of the atlas is an early one. Provenance: With bookplate of Roy Harvey Johnstone pasted inside front cover, dispersed at Sotheby's, London, 20 September 2001 lot 23. Carroll 102; Chubb 458a; Tooley's 'Dictionary'.

Some rubbing and dustmarking to labels; volumes one to three unobtrusively rebacked with matching cloth, and the end-papers sympathetically replaced; back joint similarly repaired in volumes four and six; back end-papers insignificantly cracked in volumes six and seven; in general effect a very nice copy, the text fine throughout. Evidently inspired by Sterne's 'Tristram Shandy', and including many eccentricities of organisation and typography, 'The Doctor' is a fantastic, rambling, miscellany, containing a collection of articles on a great variety of subjects, differing from a commonplace book in that they are connected together, somewhat loosely, by the story that runs through them of an imaginary Dr. Daniel Dove of Doncaster and his horse Nobs. "Its humor is occasionally Rabelaisian." - OCEL, p. 228. Among other things of interest, it includes the first appearance in print (on pp.318 - 326 of volume four) of 'The Story of the Three Bears' - but with a 'Little Old Woman' featured instead of Goldilocks. The volumes are also known with a publisher's catalogue dated May, 1834 in volume one, June 1838 in volume five, October 1846 in volume six, and April 1847 in volume seven. According to the 'English Catalogue of Books', the first volume was published in January. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

         Journal of an Embassy from the Govenor-General of India to the Courts of Siam and Cochin China; exhibiting a view of the actual state of those kingdoms. [Together with:] Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Court of Ava. With an appendix, containing a description of fossil remains, by Professor Buckland and Mr. Clift.

      London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, [and] Published for Henry Colburn, by R. Bentley (and 2 others, Edinburgh and Dublin), 1830 & 1834 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original drab brown fine diaper-grain cloth, spines gilt lettered and blind ruled, blind ornamental panelling on sides, yellow coated endpapers. A touch of foxing in places. An excellent set, the hinges not cracked. Siam: 12 plates (7 folding, 5 double-page), large folding map of "Siam and Cochin China", plan of Bangkok, folding map and plan of Singapore, 4 wood-engraved plates, 7 wood-engraved vignettes, folding letterpress table of vocabularies. Ava: 5 plates (4 folding, one double-page), large folding map of "Burman Dominions and adjacent Countries", folding plan of Ava, one wood-engraved plate, 5 wood-engraved vignettes. First octavo editions, second overall, following the firsts of 1828 and 1829. These pioneering and handsomely-illustrated works on Siam (Thailand), Cochin China (Vietnam) and Ava (Burma), are based on the first-hand experience of the Scottish orientalist and colonial administrator John Crawfurd (1783-1868). "On resuming service in India in 1821 [after accompanying Lord Minto's expedition to Java] Crawfurd was appointed to head a mission to Siam and Vietnam, with the primary objective of opening up commerce. He made little headway with the suspicious local authorities and achieved no political and little commercial advantage, despite instructions to seek trade on liberal terms without demanding the exclusive privileges customary in the past. But the official report, which he submitted on his return to Calcutta in December 1822, provided invaluable information. When Sir Stamford Raffles retired from the residency of Singapore in June 1823, he appointed Crawfurd as his successor. Crawfurd was impatient and quick-tempered, but Singapore prospered under his stewardship. An ardent free trader, he pruned administrative expenses, abolished port fees, and confined taxes to pleasures, vices, and extravagance, such as opium, alcohol, and gambling. His major achievement was to propose and negotiate a treaty of friendship and alliance, signed with the local chiefs on 2 August 1824, ceding the whole island to the East India Company. In March 1826 Crawfurd was posted to be civil commissioner in Rangoon at the end of the First Anglo-Burmese War and was appointed by the governor-general to head a mission to the Burmese court at Ava, 500 miles up the Irrawaddy River. He was warned to adopt a conciliatory attitude and negotiate a commercial treaty on the basis of equality. He left Rangoon in September 1826, and on his journey along the Irrawaddy he made notes on geology and collected seven large chests of wood, bone, and rock specimens. He was received fairly courteously by the Burmese king but encountered many frustrations in Ava. The commercial treaty concluded on 23 November 1826 offered little, but Crawfurd presented a comprehensive report on Burma on his return to Calcutta in February 1827. The following year Crawfurd retired permanently to England, where he published the accounts of his various missions: Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Courts of Siam and Cochin China (1828) and Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Court of Ava (1829). These were well received, and both volumes were reprinted in more popular format a few years later" (ODNB). Sets of both works paired together and in such exceptional original condition - the cloth bindings bright and sharp cornered - are most uncommon. Howgego II C54 & C55.

         An Original Pencil and Wash Sketch.

      [1834] Unsigned orig. pencil & wash sketch on paper, laid down on later paper with loose card mount. 11.5 x 15.5cm.The sketch is accompanied by a manuscript note laid down on a piece of card: 'Drawn by W.M. Thackeray as we were talking together in my lodgings, Southampton Street, Holborn, in the Winter or Spring of 1834. [Signed] 'Edward FitzGerald'. The sketch is of a well-to-do man and woman in 18thC dress standing in the foreground with a rural scene behind them. Thackeray met and befriended Edward FitzGerald, the poet best known for his translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, during his unsuccessful time studying at Cambridge. In a letter to FitzGerald on October 8, 1834 (one of only three letters recorded for 1834 in The Letters and Private Correspondence ...) , Thackeray writes: 'What I like to think of better than your generosity or the cause of it, is the noble & brotherly love, wh. I believe unites us together; my dear friend & brother, may God grant that no time or circumstance ever should diminish this love between us ...' In 1834, having rejected a career at the Bar, Thackeray moved to Paris to study art. Evidently he made trips back to England and took time to see FitzGerald with whom he loved to discuss art, and, as his letter of October suggests, to send him sketches: '... to night I start at the life academy; I will make the drawings you wish - I made two failures of the Sheriff, & the Gamekeeper otherwise you would have had them with the others'.
