Item Description: F. Catherwood, London, 1844. Folio. (21 1/8 x 14 1/8 inches). Chromolithographed title by Owen Jones printed in red, blue, and gold, 1 lithographic map printed in red and black, 25 tinted lithographic plates after Catherwood. Publisher's green morocco-backed moiré cloth-covered boards, titled in gilt 'Catherwood's Views / in Central America / Chiapas and Yucatan' on upper cover, flat spine titled in gilt, yellow endpapers "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 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. The 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 coloured 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). Sabin 11520; Tooley (1954) 133 (gives a list of the plates); Von Hagen, Search for the Maya , pp. 320-24; Palau 50290; Groce & Wallace, p.115; cf. Hill 263. Not in Abbey.

Item 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 # F00601c

Item Description: F. Catherwood, London, 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. Imagee size: 10 7/8 x 15 inches; card size: 17 1/4 x 21 1/4 inches. A fine image 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 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). This intriguing image shows the natives hard at work clearing the trees that had covered the ancient Mayan temple and Frederick Catherwood measuring the temple with an assistant. The man to the left of the temple with his back to the viewer is probably John Lloyd Stephens. Tulum is on the seacoast, near Cancún.
