1832 FOLIO WITH DRAMATIC ORIGINAL ETCHINGS OF ANIMALS FROM THE LONDON ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS BY EMINENT VICTORIAN ARTIST--COPY OF NOTED COLLECTOR.

26x37 cm folio recent 3/4 brown calf with marbled boards, spine with raised bands and gilt title black leather label, silk page marker, recent endpapers. Armorial bookplate of William Fuller Maitland of Stansted Hall to front paste-down, bookplate of Robert L Chevalier to front free endpaper. Unpaginated. 32 full-page engraved plates by Landseer interpersed with descriptive text by John Henry Barrow. Many of the text-pages have small engravings with imaginative scenes depicting interactions among species. Light foxing sparing most of the plates, very good minus.

THOMAS LANDSEER (1793–1880) was an artist best known for his engravings and etchings, particularly those of paintings by his youngest brother Edwin Landseer. Landseer was born in London, the eldest of the fourteen children of engraver John Landseer. Like his father, Thomas was deaf. Like his siblings, Landseer was taught artistic techniques by his father. He then studied under painter Benjamin Robert Haydon alongside his brother Charles and William Bewick. His soft-ground etchings complemented his brother's animal paintings, and sales of the popular prints (retailing for between 3 and 10 guineas) contributed to his brother's fame and fortune. He assisted his brother with giving art lessons to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Landseer produced satirical etchings of monkeys in human clothing for Monkeyana, or, Men in Miniature (1827), and dedicated his Characteristic Sketches of Animals (offered here) to the Zoological Society. He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1867 for his etchings.

JOHN HENRY BARROW (1817 – 1874) was a Congregational minister, journalist and South Australian politician. Born in England, Barrow emigrated to Adelaide, South Australia. The Clayton Chapel was built for him, but though an excellent preacher, Barrow was unsure whether his real work lay in church life, and he resigned his pastorate in 1858 to enter the South Australian House of Assembly as the member for East Torrens.

PROVENANCE: WILLIAM FULLER MAITLAND (1813–1876) was an English art collector. He was the heir of Ebenezer Fuller Maitland, of Stansted, Essex, and Park Place, Berkshire. During journeys to Italy Maitland encountered the works of early Italian masters. Their paintings formed the basis of a major part of his collection. English landscape painting was also largely represented. Maitland contributed to the Old Masters' Exhibitions of the Royal Academy, lending pictures over many years. After his death the bulk of his collection was exhibited at the South Kensington Museum; and subsequently nine of the major pictures were sold to the National Gallery, London.

Description:
LONDON : John and Arthur Arch, 1815 A good copy of the 1st edition of this extremely rare work, with 11 plates, 9 of which are hand coloured. Brookes set out to write for those who wanted to understand Conchology, but who might not have a grounding in natural history. He took care to use english rather than latin names where possible, and to give readers a clear framework for their study. This copy is in a later speckled calf binding with gilt lining and blind stamped decoration to the board edges. The spine has raised bands with gilt lining and gilt stamped decoration. There is a leather title. It is in near fine condition. Page edges are marbled. There is an inked owners name to a preliminary - J Reid Moir. 3rd November 1919 - possibly the Reid Moir who authored 'Antiquity of Man in East Anglia'. The title page has browning and some spotting and an ink mark. The text pages vary between very clean and bright (the majority) to occasional foxing and spotting, to quite heavy foxing in the… Read More

Description:
Amsterdam: Joannem Jacobi fil. Schipper, 1657 A fair copy of the extremely scarce Insectis section of Jan Jonston's famous work Historiae Naturalis. Jonston (1603-1675) studied botany and medicine and was a doctor. This copy is classed as 'fair' because it has been rebound in plain buckram binding without the title page, and the paper is very soft and lightly stained to the bottom outer corner margin. Contents are otherwise complete with 28 full page plates. The binding is clean and sound with gilt titles to spine. Contents: new endpapers; dedication 1p; Preface with plate list 3pp; Referenda ad pagninam 2pp with Plate I; text liber I pp 1-84; liber II 85-128; liber III 129-138; liber IV 139-147 with 27 further plates placed with relevant text; index 1p. Interestingly the final section includes starfish and seahorses. The contents are in very good clean condition apart from the paper damage mentioned above which has resulted in crumbling to the bottom corner of the dedication and preface leaf.

Crossing stick bridges over swollen rivers and battling swarms of tsetse flies, Mark and Delia Owens found their way into one of the most startlingly beautiful, wild places on earth, the northern Luangwa Valley in Zambia. As they were setting up camp to launch their lion research, gunfire echoed off the cliffs nearby. Gangs of ivory poachers were not only shooting the elephants but also virtually enslaving local villagers. Against unimaginable odds, Mark and Delia stopped the poaching by helping the villagers find other work, start small businesses, and improve their health care and education.

Heavy book: extra charges for expedited or international shipping. Captain Nicolas Baudin's early 19th-century voyage of scientific discovery to Australia is a little-known event in French and Australian history. Yet that voyage played an important part in the history of Australian and Pacific colonization, and in the long story of worldwide scientific exploration. Departing Le Havre in 1800, Baudin's expedition comprised two ships--the Naturaliste and the Géographe--and 238 men, including 22 scientists. For most of the next three-and-a half years they travelled along the western and southern coasts of Australia, charting the coastline and… Read More
