Book Description: London: F Catherwood, 1844., 1844. Folio (21 x 14 inches). Letterpress dedication to Stephens. Chromolithographed mosaic-bordered title-page by Owen Jones, one engraved map and 26 tinted lithographed plates on heavy paper with printed caption beneath, one leaf with two plates, after Catherwood by Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys and George Belton Moore (some mostly marginal spotting). Contemporary green morocco backed green cloth (extremities scuffed). Provenance: Early 19th-century armorial bookplate of J.J. Bowerbank L.L.D. on front paste-down; engraved bookplate of Frederick DuCane Godman (1834-1919), English Lepidopterist, entomologist, and ornithologist, on the front paste-down. First edition, one of 300 copies, issue with tinted plates on heavy paper with printed captions. "The edition of this attractive work was limited to three hundred copies, some with a London, and others with a New York imprint. There was also an issue on paper, with the plates tinted, and with text printed on the plates" (Hill). This book is notable as an early visual record of the rediscovery of the Mayan civilization and remains an important record of Mayan iconography and civilization. Frederick Catherwood was born February 1799 in England and in his lifetime was both artist and architect. Today he is mainly remembered for his meticulously detailed drawings of the ruins of Maya civilization. His travels with explorer John Lloyd Stephens (1805-1852) to the Maya region in 1839 and 1841 produced his two famous works: "Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan". To produce "Views", Catherwood translated his original illustrations to stone with the help of many important lithographers. The monuments contained within this work are located at such sites as Copan, Palenque, Uxmal, Las Monjas, Chichen Itza, and Tulum. Both Stephens and Catherwood were acclaimed for their work but sadly, both soon died within years of each other: Stephens in 1852 of malaria and Catherwood in a shipwreck in 1854.

Book Description: London: F. Catherwood, 1844., 1844. [2],24pp. plus chromolithographed title by Owen Jones printed in red, blue, and gold; lithographic map printed in red and black; and twenty-five tinted lithographic plates after Catherwood. Folio. Publisher's half green morocco and moiré cloth boards, titled in gilt "Catherwood's Views / in Central America / Chiapas and Yucatan" at center of upper cover, titled in gilt on spine; yellow endpapers. Very good. "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" - Von Hagen. This beautiful and rare plate book was printed in an edition of 300 copies. It is seldom found in presentable condition, and it is one of the first and primary visual records of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. Until the publication of the work of Alfred Maudslay at the turn of the century, this was the greatest record of Mayan iconography. Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveller and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, CHIAPAS, AND YUCATAN and INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN YUCATAN. These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. Catherwood's VIEWS was produced in London, although issued with both London and New York titlepages. Catherwood recruited some of the most distinguished lithographers in London to translate his originals onto stone: Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys, and George Belton Moore. The beautiful titlepage was executed by Owen Jones. Three hundred sets were produced, most of them tinted, as in the present copy (there is a colored issue on card stock, which is exceedingly rare). The views depict monuments and buildings at Copan, Palenque, Uxmal, Las Monjas, Chichen Itza, Tulum, and several scattered sights. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise, but neither lived to enjoy it long. Stephens died in 1852 of malaria contracted in Colombia, and Catherwood went down on a steamship in the North Atlantic in 1854. "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist- archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor" - Aldous Huxley. Not in Abbey. PALAU 50290. SABIN 11520. TOOLEY 133 (gives a lit of the plates). Von Hagen, SEARCH FOR THE MAYA, pp.320-24. GROCE & WALLACE, p.115. HILL 263 (ref). Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 35603C

Book Description: Date depicted: 1844; published: New York, 1846., 1846. Engraved by Henry Papprill - Aquatint (illustrator). framed size 28 1/2 x 37 5/8 in. Drawn by an architect and executed in aquatint by an English engraver, this tranquil nineteenth-century scene depicts the bay of New York from across the East River. Governor's Island, which faces the southern tip of Manhattan, occupies the foreground. Fort Columbus was located on the island, and one can discern soldiers in a drill or lounging on the grass, and mounted cannon that face the city's harbor. Across the East River, at the extreme left is Castle Garden, nicely framed by two large vessels. Slightly to the right is the graceful spire of Trinity Church. Further north along the quays, masts of ships mingle with the spires of other churches to form the Manhattan skyline. The drawing on which the aquatint is based is by Frederick Catherwood, a native of London and a man of abundant talent. He was a trained architect, a widely traveled explorer and archeologist, a historical and panoramic painter, and an engineer. Catherwood was among the first to explore and record the buried civilizations of the Yucatan; he also traveled on archeological missions to Italy, Greece, Egypt, and many other countries. Two years after his arrival in New York in 1836, Catherwood exhibited a panorama of Jerusalem that was a widely imitated success. Thereafter, the chronology of his life includes works of various kinds in Mexico and Central and South America, a Gold Rush experience in California, and returns to New York. He was lost at sea aboard the SS Arctic, which left Liverpool bound for New York on September 20, 1854 and collided near its destination with a French vessel. Writing a century after his death, Aldous Huxley compared Catherwood with Piranesi and remarked that, "professionally speaking, Catherwood belongs to a species -- the artist-archeologist -- which is all but extinct." Catherwood's view of New York from Governor's Island was sketched in watercolor sometime after he took up residence in New York in August 1844 at 86 Prince Street. By the spring of the following year, he had left for a journey to South America, where he remained for several years. Henry A. Papprill, who executed the aquatint, was an English artist who spent a few years in America. He was born in London in 1817, the son of a tailor and the descendant of several generations of blacksmiths. In 1846 he is recorded in New York, where he stayed until no later than 1851. Papprill went on to become one of the most noted and prolific engravers in late-nineteenth century London. Yet because he spent so little time in New York and only two views of the city engraved by him are known to exist, his New York works are especially prized by collectors. In this atmospheric aquatint, Papprill reproduced in faithful detail Catherwood's evocative portrayal of the bustling port of New York in the mid-nineteenth century. This rare aquatint represents the only known collaboration between Catherwood and Papprill. References: I. N. Phelps Stokes, The Iconography of Manhattan Island (New York, 1967), Vol. 3, pl. 131, pp. 697-698; and G. G. Deak, Picturing America 1497-1899 (Princeton, 1988), Vols. 1 & 2, pl. 531.

Book Description: Grass Valley, California: 1851-52, 1851. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. Frederick Catherwood (1799-1854) Study of California Pine and Sequoia Tree Grass Valley, California: 1851-52 Pencil drawing An early 19th-century lifelong world traveler, Frederick Catherwood was active in England, Central America, New York City and San Francisco during the early days of the Gold Rush. Of Scottish heritage, Catherwood was born in London, England in 1799 to a prosperous family. He worked as an apprentice architect and then studied at the Royal Academy in the 1820s, then completed his formal education in architecture at Oxford University. Although his training was in architecture, he decided his real passion in life was for art, especially images from his many travels of the sites of ancient cultures. Early in his career, Catherwood traveled up the Nile River as an expedition artist in 1824 with Englishman Robert Hay, and the expedition is credited with laying the foundations for Egyptian archeology. Catherwood later explored Central American jungles and visited Mayan ruins with fellow explorer John Lloyd Stephens in two trips between 1839 and 1841. From these explorations, Catherwood published 25 lithographs, a map, with text from over 200 original drawings, sepias, and watercolors in Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan. At the height of the California Gold Rush in 1850 Catherwood moved to San Francisco and was appointed as an engineer on the first projected railway in California, the Benecia-Marysville Railroad. This study of a sequoia trees was drawn at Grass Valley (Nevada County), most likely while Catherwood was working as a railroad engineer. No other drawings, apart from the drawings from this set, from Catherwood’s time in California (1850-52) appear to have survived. By 1853, Catherwood had left California. He died on September 20, 1854, after a French vessel rammed the boat on which he was sailing from Liverpool to the United States. Bookseller Inventory # F00602c

Book Description: London: F. Catherwood, 1844. Hand coloured tinted lithograph, after Catherwood, trimmed to the image and mounted on card as issued, ink ruled border and ink manuscript plate number in the lower right corner. 10 5/8 x 16 1/4 inches. 17 3/4 x 21 3/4 inches. A fine image in the Mexican State of Yucatan from the extraordinarily rare hand-coloured issue of this highly important work: "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" (Von Hagen). Until the publication of the work of Alfred Maudsley at the turn of the century, Catherwood's Views was the greatest record of Mayan iconography and a primary visual record of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. The Views was produced in London, although issued with both London and New York title pages. Catherwood recruited some of the most distinguished lithographers in London to translate his originals onto stone: Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys, and George Belton Moore. Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveller and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan. These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise. Of Catherwood, Huxley writes: "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist-archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor." Three hundred copies of the work were produced. Most copies are the standard issue, containing tinted lithographed plates. A much more limited number were issued in the present deluxe format: with the plates expertly hand-coloured, cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card stock in imitation of the original watercolours. Very few such deluxe copies have appeared on the market in the last quarter century, with the most recent portfolio selling for $120,000 (Christie's New York, 5 December 2006).
