         Colour as a Means of Art, Being an Adaptation of the Experience of Professors to the Practice of Amateurs

      London 1842 - Skillful manuscript copy of English painter Frank Howard's popular introduction to color theory, first published in 1838, with original watercolors after the lithographed plates of the printed book. The son of artist Henry Howard, a member of the Royal Academy, Frank Howard followed in the family tradition, exhibiting paintings on allegorical and historical subjects. He also lectured and published extensively on art. In this work, Howard offers a historical survey of the use of color in painting, introducing principles derived from the work of Titian, Rubens and Turner, among others. In the context of this manuscript, produced by Henry Tupman, an otherwise unknown art student, the watercolor illustrations do more than simply mimic the lithographs in Howard's printed work: they serve as direct performances of the principles at hand. Howard writes: "Turner has controverted the old doctrine of a balance of colors, by shewing that a picture may be made up of delicately graduated blues and white, supported by pale cool green, and enlivened by a point of rich brownish crimson." Tupman illustrates this passage with a watercolor that recreates the exact composition described, turning Howard's text into an art-historical activity book. A fine illuminated manuscript that sheds light on the practical work of English art education (and imitation) in the nineteenth century. Octavo measuring 8 x 5 inches, modern three-quarter brown sheep over pink and blue marbled boards, raised bands, red spine label, spine lettered and double ruled in gilt. 94 pages of Tupman's manuscript copy of Howard's text, penned in an exceptionally neat and clear hand. Original watercolor frontispiece and 17 original watercolors by Tupman tipped in. Illuminated initials "HT" drawn in blue and red ink on third fly leaf. Some offsetting from watercolors.

         Lao Tseu Tao Te King. Le Livre de la Voie et de la Vertu . . . traduit en Français . . . par Stanislaus Julien.

      Paris: l'Imprimerie Royale, 1842 xliv, 304 pp. Contemporary black paper boards, old manuscript spine label. Spine and edges rubbed. FIRST EDITION of the complete Tao Te Ching to be published in a Western language. The founding work of Taoism, the Tao-te Ching is said to have been written in the 6th century BCE by Lao-Tzu (or Laozi, "Old Master"), a contemporary of Confucius and a central figure of Chinese culture and history. The book was first a philosophy, but it evolved into a religion when it was adopted officially in 440 CE, when Lao-Tzu was venerated as a deity. Lao-Tzu's famously cryptic Tao-te Ching is one of the Five Chinese Classics and one of the most widely read books in history. Apart from the Bible, it is likely the most-translated classic ever published.

      - L. Curmer, Paris 1842, Fort Grd. in-8 (18x26cm), (6) XXIV, 416pp. et 664pp., 2 volumes reliés. - edizione Leganti metà epoca dolore verde. Torna con false nervi scatole ornate, ruote nervi. Doppia rete inquadratura sui piatti. bordi dorati. scintillante guardie bianche. Tracce di attrito sul piatto e sui bordi. Un graffio sul bordo inferiore del volume 1 0,5cm. immacolata carta, molto camice bianco, con qualche rara macchie. Alcune tavole più ingiallita. Bella copia in buone condizioni. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale abondamment illustrée de 186 planches d'animaux (oiseaux, reptiles, poissons, insectes crustacés, coraux...) dont 33 très finement coloriées à la main. Ces planches en couleurs sont en effet d'un raffinement exquis, aux couleurs profondes et éclatantes. On distingue également de nombreux portraits sur acier en médaillon. Un plan dépliant du jardin des plantes et 2 planches sur double page sur acier. Les planches sur acier ont été finement exécutées. Très nombreuses figures sur bois in-texte montrant des animaux. En outre, le livre bénéficie d'un traitement romantique typique, avec grandes compositions sur bois pour les pages de titres et de parties, ornements, etc.  Reliures en demi chagrin vert d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs à caissons richement ornés, roulettes sur les nerfs. Double filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Gardes blanches moirées. Traces de frottements sur les plats et sur les bordures. Un accroc sur la bordure inférieure du tome 1 sur 0,5cm. Papier immaculé, bien blanc dans l'ensemble, avec quelques rares rousseurs. Quelques planches plus jaunis.  Très bel exemplaire en bonne condition. Curmer s'était spécialisé dans l'édition de luxe, et on sait qu'il se ruina dans la commande des meilleures gravures en Angleterre, du papier utilisé, et qu'il fit rapidement faillite. Hetzel en racheta le fond. Le jardin des plantes constitue une superbe publication qui allie l'intérêt du sujet et de la découverte à la réalisation parfaite d'un livre d'exception.
