Item Description: Paris: Levrault frères (later Levrault, Schoell & Co.), 1801-1805., 1805. 2 volumes. Folio (20 x 12 6/8 inches). Half-titles, 145 EXCEPTIONALLY fine engraved plates after Jacques Barraband, printed in colors and finished by hand by Langlois under the direction of Bouquet. Contemporary cherry morocco, each cover decorated with a broad gilt border, the spine in seven compartments with five raised bands, gilt-lettered in two, the others decorated with fine gilt tools by C. Smith (spines evenly faded). Provenance: from the library of Beriah Botfield (1807-1863), antiquary and industrialist, his sale, Christie's, Mar 30th 1994, lot 77. "The received wisdom is that the work was published in two formats, quarto and folio, both published in 24 parts. In addition 12 copies were issued in large folio with the plates in colored and uncolored states" (Christie's). Levaillant, one of the greatest French ornithologists, was the son of the French consul in Dutch Guiana. He was born in Paramarimbo and seems to have inherited his father's love of travel. He became one of the first of a new breed of naturalists who attained prominence towards the end of the 18th century, studying and recording their subjects in their natural habitat. Jacques Barraband (1767 or 1768-1809) worked for the Gobelin factory and was considered the best ornithological artist of his time. Langlois's engravings capture the precision and beauty of his gouache and watercolour originals. "After he had made himself Emperor, it was part of Napoleon's deliberate policy to initiate a series of magnificent publications that would vie with those undertaken to the orders of Louis XIV. These were sent as presents to crowned heads, men of science, and learned bodies, in evidence of the splendours of the Empire. The works of Levaillant owe their sumptous character to. [this]. impetus. His "Histoire naturelle des perroquets" is, unwittingly, a part of the glories of Napoleonic France" (Fine Bird Books). Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband's engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant's publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of the cheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds' feathers. From the distinguished library of Beriah Botfield who published a number of books that reflected his interests in early printed books and manuscripts. He set up a private printing press at Norton Hall and printed some of his own writings there in limited editions. Botfield was also a renowned book collector, and a member of the Roxburghe Club. His library of early printed and colour plate books, many in fine and sumptuous bindings, he bqueathed to the Thynne family of Bath, with whom he claimed a tenuous kinship. Most of Botfield's books, which included a number of Caxtons and other incunabula, remained at Longleat, the Thynne family home, although some were sold at sales at Sothebys (11 June 1979) and Christies (30 March 1994).

Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Good. Thomas Hill (1829-1908) Big trees, 1903 Signed and dated lower right: “T. Hill/1903” Oil on canvas Canvas size: 46 ¼” x 30” Framed size: 55” x 38 ¾” Provenance: Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin to Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin was the granddaughter of Michael Henry de Young, founder of the San Francisco Chronicle and benefactor of the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum. Thomas Hill was born in Birmingham, England on September 11, 1829. After immigrating to the United States in 1844, Hill settled with his family in Taunton, Massachusetts. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under the tutelage of Peter F. Rothermel. Hill painted in Massachusetts throughout the 1850’s, often in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with a group of artists that included Asher B. Durand, George Inness, Benjamin Champney, Albert Bierstadt, Virgil Williams and his brother Edward Hill. For health reasons he was forced to seek a milder climate and, with wife and children, made the overland trek to California in 1861. After settling in San Francisco, Hill advertised himself as a portrait painter. In 1862 Hill made his first trip to Yosemite accompanied by the artists William Keith and Virgil Williams. In 1866 Hill exhibited his Yosemite scenes at the National Academy, and later that year, traveled to Paris where he was a pupil of Paul Meyerheim and exhibited at the Universal Expo. Returning to the United States, Hill stayed in Boston from 1868 to 1970, but returned to San Francisco in 1871. He hit his artistic stride in California during the 1870s, beginning with his first grandiose painting, The Yosemite Valley, which was published as a chromolithograph by Prang. With Frederic Whymper, Hill was a founding member of the San Francisco Art Association, and in 1873, he became a member of the Bohemian Club, a men’s organization dedicated to cultural enhancement. Hill built a studio in Yosemite in 1883, which would become his main residence for rest of his life (his wife maintained the family home in Oakland). During the winter months Hill resided in San Francisco where he maintained a studio in the Flood Building. When Virgil Williams died in 1886, Hill became interim director of the School of Design until a new director could be found. During the 1870s and 1880s, Hill’s work was in demand and brought very high prices; however, during the later part of his life his work did not command the interest that it once had due to changing art styles. Like Bierstadt, his panoramic landscapes were considered old-fashioned and for half a century or more his work was in eclipse. Today his work has regained its proper stature and he is considered a giant in American art. His work can currently be viewed in the collections of the de Young museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Oakland Museum of California and the White House, among many other collections. The trees illustrated in Thomas Hill’s “Big Tress, 1903” are giant Sequioas in the Mariposa Grove near Wawaona, in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park . Mariposa Grove was first visited by non-natives in 1857, when found by Galen Clark and Milton Mann. The grove contains about 500 mature giant Sequoias, some dating to over 2000 years old. The “Wawona Tunnel Tree,” as illustrated in Hill’s painting, had a tunnel cut through it in 1881 to allow horse-drawn carriages and eventually automobiles to pass through it. Since falling in 1969, this tree has since been called the “Fallen Tunnel Tree”. The tree in the foreground of the painting is called the Vermont Tree. These trees, along with the others in the Mariposa Grove, have been tourist attractions since the late 19th century and continue to be so today. Bookseller Inventory # L00302c

Item Description: Stone Harbor; Far Hills, New Jersey, 1989-2010, 2010. The Archive of Meadow Run Press, sporting book publisher 1989-2010. For two decades William D. Trego's Meadow Run Press set the standards for American sporting book publishing and issued a series of finely produced original works by new and established authors as well as sporting club histories, privately printed angling volumes, and a select group of reprints of neglected classics. The books, among them Sea Level and Marquesa by Jeffrey Cardenas, The Henryville Fly Fishers by Ernest Schwiebert, Live Water by Tom McGuane, and the cult classic, The Starlight Creek Angling Society by Harry Middleton, are notable for their content and for a consistent attention to design, illustration, and the form of the finished book. Many of the titles were also issued in limited deluxe editions with special bindings and additional material by the artists and authors; several were printed letterpress by Bradley Hutchinson of Austin, Texas. The books were uniformly well received by reviewers and readers alike, and several were reprinted on multiple occasions. The publisher, Mr. William D. Trego, variously of Stone Harbor and Far Hills, New Jersey, was educated at the Philadelphia College of Art (now the University of the Arts), Temple University, and Villanova University. He established the press as his interests in collecting evolved from American literature to American sporting books and to the outdoors. From modest beginnings in 1989 with a reprint of a classic American angling work, he undertook to publish original works and commissioned suitable illustration art from living American artists including Peter Corbin, John Swan, John Rice, and others. The Meadow Run Press books reflected the publisher's style and something of his character as well: Tom McGuane, now a legendary figure in American outdoor writing, wrote to Mr. Trego, "The books are beautiful and you've done such a fantastic job on this project - in every way! I've been writing for a living for almost three decades and this is, by far, my most pleasant publishing experience" (autograph letter, signed, dated 27 December 1996, in the archive). The Archive includes editorial, business, and production correspondence relating to the books and to their sale to mail-order and trade customers, with significant exchanges with authors Tom McGuane, Ernest Schwiebert, Tosh Brown, David Swanson, John Cole, and others, as well as with the artists commissioned by the press. Mr. Trego views The Starlight Creek Angling Society as one of the most significant accomplishments of the press, and this is documented in the original typescript of the book, as well as in the extensively edited drafts and abundant correspondence with the author, who died, untimely, soon after the book was published. The other important discovery of the press was Jeffrey Cardenas, whose first book, Marquesa, has become a modern salt water angling classic. M.L. Biscotti's A Bibliography of American Sporting Books 1926-1985 (1997) is a significant addition to the tradition of sporting reference works. Mr. Trego is himself a well-regarded writer and one large archive box relating to his earlier articles is present. The archive also includes a variety of submission manuscripts for works that the press declined to publish. As a bookman, Mr. Trego is known for his his meticulous insistence on condition; all of the publisher's copies of books are in superb condition, most with warm inscriptions from the authors and often with original drawings by the artists. Much of the smaller format artwork has been put into boxes to accompany notable typescripts, such as the raw, unedited typescript of Schwiebert's Henryville Fly Fishers, or the substantial archive of Harry Middleton material. Generally the condition of materials in the archive files is fine; some of the correspondence is on thermal fax paper and thus may present conservation issues in the longer term. Mr. Trego is at work on a book on Harry Middleton and Starlight Creek, and. Bookseller Inventory # 257301

Édition originale officielle à l’exception du deuxième voyage en 3e édition (souvent préférée à la première édition. Elle contient la table générale des planches pour les trois voyages). Collection complète des trois voyages de Cook, à laquelle on a ajouté la vie du célèbre navigateur par Andrew Kippis. Complet de ses 202 planches gravées hors texte et du portrait du capitaine Cook en frontispice du deuxième voyage (52, 63 et 87 pl.). *Exceptionnelle reliure en cuir de renne russe, dont le prestige tient beaucoup à l’histoire insolite de sa découverte et de son sauvetage d’une épave oubliée au fond des eaux pendant près de deux siècles ! Le brigantin danois « Die Frau Metta Catharina von Flensburg », en provenance de Saint-Pétersbourg pour Gênes avec une cargaison de chanvre et de peaux, s’était échoué dans le détroit de Plymouth en 1786 ; et ce n’est qu’en 1973 que des plongeurs archéologues (the British Sub-Aqua Club), en quête d’un autre navire, l’ont découvert par hasard. Cet événement a donné lieu à une spectaculaire vente aux enchères, et le relieur londonien « Aquarius » s’est porté acquéreur d’un ensemble de peaux de première qualité, dont celle qui lui a servi à relier, avec une grande maîtrise, notre exemplaire. Le remarquable et surprenant état de conservation des ballots de peaux que le brigantin contenait (certaines de la taille de l’animal lui-même, avec la queue et la tête, et marquées des initiales du tanneur) est dû à la méthode russe traditionnelle de tannage qui, en trempant le cuir dans un bain d’écorces de bouleau, le rendait résistant à la moisissure et lui vaut une réputation sans égale auprès des bibliophiles, surtout anglais. La peau du renne très résistante, souple et agréable au toucher se prête très bien aux ornements tels que les dorures ou les incrustations, et son séjour biséculaire dans la boue noire où il a été découvert n’a fait que renforcer sa solidité. Sa couleur varie du rouge bordeaux épais à une couleur terre de Sienne plus légère, comme pour notre exemplaire (Cf. The Wreck of the Metta Catharina, Garbett G. & Skelton I. 1987 et The International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Blackwell, Oxford 2010, vol. 39, no2, pp. 235-257 [23 pages (article)]). Very nice set. Complet set of the “best” editions. "Now, this book has quite an amazing story : In 1786, the Die Frau Metta Catherina brigantine left St. Petersbourg with a cargo of hemp and leather. The latter was no ordinary leather, but Russia leather its typical crosshatched grain, tanned with willow bark and curried with birch oil – what the New York Times magazine calls “a top-of-the-line luxury.” This leather was renown for its unique perfume, its resistance to water and, as it seems, for being insect-repellent. Captain Twedt who was the skipper of the Die Frau Metta Catherina back in 1786, was aiming to Genoa. But he never went beyond Plymouth Sound. Torn from her anchorage by a sudden storm, the Metta Catherina eventually sank to a depth of about 100 feet. “The vessel and cargo entirely lost, read a contemporary article; crew saved.” The cargo, including rolls of Russia leather, quietly remained underwater for the following 187 years, until some members of a local diving club discovered the ship. Brought to the surface, the rolls of leather proved to be somehow well preserved. Mr. Brown, who happened to commercialize them, stated : ''The hides on the outer edges of the rolls, as well as others that were disturbed as the vessel sank, had all deteriorated badly. The inner hides in most of the rolls were in a remarkable state of preservation, protected. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-4240789275

Item Description: [London: by the author], 1748 [first plate]-1759 [plate 15]., 1759. 16 leaves, large folio (20 6/8 x 12 6/8 inches). 15 hand-colored engraved plates by and after Ehret, plate 15 with a facing page of text, "The history and analysis of the parts of the Jessamne, which flowered in the curious garden of R. Warner, Esq; at Woodford, July 1758", an uncolored engraved vignette of the Rondeletia by Ehret at the foot of this page, all plates but two on laid paper bearing the watermark of STRASBOURG LILY with "G" and maker's countermark I. TAYLOR, plate 4 on unwatermarked heavy wove paper, the letterpress on laid paper marked IV (plates 1, 10 and 11 with small repaired tears in lower margins, a few minor nicks at edges and plate 12 with a creased margin, some showthrough and a little paper discoloration throughout). Disbound and loose in modern red quarter morocco clamshell box. Provenance: The bookplate of Harry Wearne (1852-1929); memorial gift bookplate The Art-in-Trades Club. First edition. The "Plantae et papiliones rariores" has no title-page or text other than a caption title at the top of the first plate, and engraved Latin descriptions of the plants. (English text appears in trompe l'oeil on plate 8). The letterpress leaf accompanying the Jasminum plate 15 appears to have been published independently of the engravings. The work was published in parts by subscription, subscribers including Sir Hans Sloane and the Duchess of Portland; Ehret dedicated plate 14 to the latter, who had the Ginger plant cultivated in her greenhouse in September 1754 (Calman). During his years in Regensburg Ehret's drawings came to the attention of the physician and botanist Christoph Jakob Trew (1695-1769), who asked him "to paint for him as many plants as he could on large fine paper" (Henrey, p. 63). Trew had planned to publish a book of engravings based on his own collection of Ehret's drawings the project was delayed and Ehret, growing impatient, decided to publish his own book of engravings, containing "newly introduced species which had rarely if ever been previously represented" (Calman). Ehret's "approach was a fine compromise between that of the artist and that of the scientist: he did not slavishly imitate what he saw nor did he allow his feeling for color and design to distract him unduly from the fundamentals of plant structure. Artists and botanists alike, therefore, join in praising his work. he has. his own particular qualities-- a sureness of touch, vigor of handling, and an unerring instinct for design" (Blunt & Stearn, p. 163). Trew remained a patron and friend of Ehret for the rest of his life, and they eventually collaborated on Trew's magnum opus "Plantae selectee" (1750-1773), which confirmed Ehret's reputation as a master of botanical illustration. EXTREMELY RARE: not in the Plesch or de Belder collections. The Massachusetts Horticultural Society copy (sold, Sotheby's New York, 1 October 1980, lot 116) and the present copy are the only two copies recorded by ABPC since 1965. Only two copies are recorded in American institutions: Arnold Arboretum, Harvard University, and the Library of the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington D.C.

John Lennon wore this cowboy hat at a ranch in Alton Missouri on September 19, 1964 during a day off from The Beatles coast to coast US tour in the summer of 1964. It was a day off and away from the total chaos of The Beatles tour. It is also thought he used the hat on his second trip to the United States in 1965. He wore it during his USA visit in 1964 and on other occasions in the mid 60s. JOHN LENNON gave the hat to his Uncle Charles Lennon on his return to the UK and during a visit to see him in Liverpool. The cowboy hat is accompanied by a handwritten supporting letter from John Lennon's Uncle Charlie as follows: "8. 2000. This "Cowboy" hat was given too myself by John Lennon in the mid 60's on one of his quite visits to Liverpool. He brought the hat home from America the second time he went over with The Beatles in 65 ? I'm told he was photographed with it, Regards, Charles Lennon (Johns Uncle) Fred's Brother!"

Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to devote time to his family, but re-emerged in 1980 with a new album, Double Fantasy. He was murdered three weeks after its release.

OUR ENGLISH EQUIVALENT OF AUDUBON'S GREAT WORK" (Mullens and Swann, p. 518). The edition was issued at irregular intervals and this is reflected in the erratic numbering of the plates. Selby showed a "great interest in ornithology from an early age and made his own notes and careful, coloured drawings of the birds in his district. his main interests were ornithology, forestry, and entomology. He was a skilful fisherman and an excellent shot. Selby's major work, "Illustrations of British Ornithology", was published in nineteen parts between 1821 and 1833. It contained some 222 plates etched by Selby (mostly after his own drawings) with the assistance of his brother-in-law Admiral Robert Mitford. In 1819 Mitford was taught to etch by Thomas Bewick in Newcastle; he then taught Selby at Twizell House. Two volumes of text appeared, "Land Birds" in 1825 (revised in 1833) and "Water Birds" in 1833. The specimens on which the figures were based were nearly all collected and set up by Selby, aided by his butler, Richard Moffitt. "From 1825 until 1841 Selby assisted his friend Sir William Jardine (1800–1874) with the descriptions, drawings, and etchings for their joint publication,'Illustrations of Ornithology' (1836–43). During this period, in 1835 and 1836 respectively, he also wrote the volumes 'Pigeons and Parrots' for Jardine's 'Naturalist's Library'. Together, in conjunction with George Johnston, Selby and Jardine founded the 'Magazine of Zoology and Botany' in 1836, which was widened in scope in 1838 when the name was changed to 'Annals of Natural History'. Selby remained an editor until his death, contributing notes and articles up to 1841. He joined the Berwickshire Naturalists' Club soon after it was founded in 1831 and served as its president in 1834 and again in 1844. Between 1832 and 1859 he contributed many papers to the 'History of the Berwickshire Naturalists' Club'. Further papers were published in other journals between 1823 and 1838" (Christine E.

'ENGLISH EQUIVALENT OF AUDUBON'S GREAT WORK (Mullens and Swann) A fine copy of the "Bohn reprint", first published in parts at irregular intervals in Edinburgh in 1834. Second edition of the first text volume, first edition of the second text volume. Prideaux John Selby "was very gifted as an artist, and the two volumes of "Illustrations of British Ornithology" are outstandingly beautiful. In many people's estimation, the clarity and crispness of his figures give them an austere beauty that is lacking in the pretty lithographs in H.L. Meyer's and John Gould's books about British birds . The cool, classical quality of Selby's plates belongs to the age of elegance and could never have been achieved by the Victorian John Gould. Selby's bird figures were the most accurate delineations of British birds to that date, and the liveliest. After so many books with small, stiff bird portraits, this new atlas with its life-size figures and more relaxed drawing was a great achievement in the long history of bird illustration" (Jackson).

Item Description: Hard cover. [Compiled by Georg Henisch]. Typographical border round title (very slightly shaved at outer margin). 559 pp., [38] leaves. Agenda chancery 4to (303 x 96 mm.), cont. pigskin-backed wooden boards (smallish stain to first two leaves, one wooden corner chipped), orig. clasps & catches. Augsburg: V. Schönigk, 1600. A wonderfully well-preserved copy, from the private collection of Helmuth Domizlaff, of the second earliest catalogue of an institutional library (preceded only by the extremely rare catalogue of the Leyden University Library in 1595). Augsburg was, after the Palatina, the most important public library in Germany and the present catalogue became a valuable reference tool for the contemporary scholar. Our catalogue of the library of the Imperial City of Augsburg is one of the rarest of the great institutional library catalogues and certainly, from the point of view of its format, one of the strangest. It was printed in the very unusual agenda format, probably for ease of carrying (it would fit in a deep pocket). While it has been speculated that some copies were also printed in quarto size, I do not believe any such example exists. Archer Taylor wrote, in his Book Catalogues, regarding this catalogue, "it is said to have been printed in one hundred copies only" (p. 94). Augsburg’s library "must have been one of the most important public libraries in the Europe of its time: many thousand works by over 4,000 authors are accurately described and arranged according to first names. It must have represented a valuable reference tool for the contemporary scholar."–Grolier Club, Bibliography, 41. Both books and manuscripts are described. The author index at end, arranged by first name, is extremely advanced and includes authors of secondary texts, editors, etc. Georg Henisch (1549-1618), philologist and mathematician, studied medicine at Basel and went to Augsburg as professor of logic and mathematics. He served as head of the medical school, president of the city’s gymnasium, and librarian of the Augsburg City Library. He was a highly esteemed scholar of the time as an editor of Greek texts and as an astronomer. Very fine copy, in fresh condition. Rather taller than the Breslauer copy (288 mm.). Contemporary ownership inscription of Joseph Anthony Rauch, dated 1733. ? Peignot, pp. 42-43–"Ce volume a la hauteur d’un in-folio, mais il n’a que la moitié de la largeur; voilà pourquoi on l’appele dimidiatum volumen." Pollard & Ehrman, Table XXX. Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 45. Bookseller Inventory # JHABES2945

Item Description: [London: 1913], 1913. Quarto (254 × 202 mm). 130 pages carbon-copy typescript bound with 5 leaves of plain paper at beginning and 2 at end, the first leaf with Robert Ross's typed return address (The Reform Club, Pall Mall), the whole bound into legal linen covers, sewn with green cloth at upper inner corner, the cover lettered in black ink in a legal secretarial hand. Front cover clipped at lower outer corner, the address and salutation clipped from the first page of typescript, some neat paper restoration at the upper inner corner of the first leaf (Ross's address page), some finger soiling; overall good. The book octavo, grey linen boards printed in black on the upper cover (typed description of the book pasted to the front pastedown, typed overslip on tissue paper at the foot of p. 26, several small typos corrected in ink). With a two-line footnote in ink to page 45 in Ross's hand. Pencil underlining, presumably McCardie's, on every page, marking emphases for public reading. A few minor corrections in ink. Ownership inscription of Sir H. A. McCardie on the front cover, the address and salutation at the head of the text clipped from the page but supplied in McCardie's hand. The first 2 blank pages with pencilled annotations itemising key points in the text with page references, smaller pencilled annotations and corrections in the text, some incidents in the text dated in the margin, all these pencilled marginalia apparently in a later hand. Robert Ross's typescript copy of the portions of the De Profundis manuscript that he had left unpublished in 1905, annotated by him and sent by him for use in Lord Alfred Douglas's libel action against Arthur Ransome and his publishers, with signs of use by the defence council. On its reading in open court, this was the first publication of the unpublished portion. In the latter months of his two years' prison sentence for homosexual crimes, Wilde was working on two long pieces: one, a letter remonstrating with Lord Alfred Douglas for his heartless parasitism and shared responsibility for Wilde's downfall; the other, a literary essay similar to the first published version of De Profundis. By the time he had finished, the two texts were closely intermingled. Wilde sent the resulting manuscript to Robert Ross, his friend and literary executor, instructing him to make two copies and send the manuscript to Douglas. Instead Ross kept the original manuscript and sent a copy to Douglas, who apparently destroyed it without reading much beyond the first few pages. In 1905 Ross published De Profundis (the title was his), an abridged version which aimed to restore the piece as a purely literary essay. The published version omitted all elements of being a direct letter to Douglas, though it was still obvious that it was addressed to a specific person. Arthur Ransome (later of Swallows and Amazons fame) was subsequently commissioned by Martin Secker to write a critical study of Oscar Wilde, published by the Times Book Club in 1912. In discussing De Profundis, Ransome made a vague reference to the hidden identity of Wilde's amour fatale. Douglas promptly sued for libel. Although Ross was not called to give evidence in the case, he supplied Ransome's lawyers with this typescript of the unpublished portions of the original manuscript of De Profundis, which was read out in the High Court of Justice (King's Bench Division) on 17 and 18 April 1913 and published in the London daily papers the following days. The evidence was sufficient to show that Douglas was undoubtedly the person addressed by Wilde. Douglas lost his case. Ross then deposited the original manuscript in the British Library with instructions that it could not published until 1960. (In the event it was not until 1962 that the original manuscript was finally published in full.) Ransome's defence was conducted by Sir Henry Alfred McCardie (1869–1933), then a highly successful junior barrister, later a judge controversial for his outspokenly advanced opinions on soc.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM, Northern Italy (Verona?), dated 1456, 137 x 101 mm. 450 folios, complete (collation, i6 ii-xl10 xli8 xlii-xliii10 xliv12 [-8, following f. 437, cancelled with no loss of text] xlv10 [-10, cancelled, with no loss of text]), horizontal catchwords, ruled in ink (justification, 86-83 x 65-64 mm.), written in southern gothic bookhands probably by two scribes, guide letters, majuscules touched with pale yellow, red rubrics, one- to two-line alternately red and blue initials, four- to three-line alternately red and blue initials with contrasting pen decoration in purple and red, THREE ILLUMINATED initials, with decorative borders in the outer margins, and TWO HISTORIATED INITIALS WITH FULL BORDERS, depicting bearded saints. BINDING: Bound in Italy in modern polished pink leather, binder’s stamp, inside front cover, “R. Gozzi. Modena,” front cover, coat of arms in gilt (azure, three bends or, in chief, gules three towers or, with a crown above), elaborate embossed silver clasps, with both clasps, front and back covers, depicting the sacrifice of Isaac (?), and the connecting fastener depicting Moses holding the tablets (possibly from an earlier Italian binding, or in an earlier style; compare the eighteenth-century Italian embossed silver binding, New York Grolier Club, MS 11, which includes a similar depiction of Moses), silk doublure and facing flyleaves, gilt edges, in excellent condition, slight wear at front hinge, in slipcase. TEXT: This is a luxurious volume, carefully written, with attractive penwork initials and five illuminated pages, including two full borders, in almost pristine condition with few signs of daily used, bound in an equally luxurious binding. Although this Breviary follows the liturgy of the Papal Curia, which was first adopted by the Franciscans in the thirteenth century, it was certainly made for a person of wealth, perhaps the patron of a Franciscan monastery. It includes an unidentified coat-of-arms, which when identified should help complete the story of its origin. ILLUMINATION: The style of illumination, distinguished by a vibrant and attractive color palette featuring deep red, vivid green, and purple, is in keeping with the style generally popular in Northeastern Italy, including Verona, Venice and Padua in the middle to the third quarter of the fifteenth century; although it has not been attributed to a particular artist manuscripts Antonio de Stefano in Verona use similar decorative motifs. PROVENANCE: Dated by the scribe, July 17, 1456. The rubrics identify it as Use of Rome and the sanctorale and calendar include numerous Franciscan saints. Unidentified coat-of-arms, presumably of the original owner or patron, f. 7, azure fleur de lis or party per pale quarterly gules a fess argent and or five torteaux and one hurt. The manuscript apparently remained in Italy until modern times when it was bound in Modena.

Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Please Contact Seller. Unframed: 14 3/4 x 19 1/4"Framed: 24 x 29". During the past two centuries, America has produced some of the finest and most famed natural history painters and artists. While Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran and Thomas Worthington Whittredge faithfully recorded the magnificence of her newly discovered landscape, America's wildlife was exquisitely depicted by such artists as John James Audubon, Louis Agassiz Fuertes and Francis Lee Jaques. Each took pride in their nation's bounties and enlightened fellow citizens, as well as foreigners, to the beauty of her lands.The painter and naturalist, Francis Lee Jaques (pronounced "Jay-quees") was a native of Atkin, Minnesota and grew up on the banks of the Mississippi River surrounded by the wildlife he would eventually become famous for depicting. His father, Ephriam, was a hunting guide, farmer, writer, poet and logger and thus, had a profound influence upon his son, introducing him to the glories of nature. Jaques's education was somewhat informal, relying upon conversations with his father's hunting friends and clients to gain knowledge rather than attending school. Indeed, it was during a hunting trip with the editor of Field and Stream magazine that his career path was formed.The painter's accomplished depiction of animals and birds was based upon his acute knowledge of animal anatomy. Jaques had inherited a taxidermy shop in repayment of a ten dollar debt. During this time he started painting in earnest and produced a group of watercolor paintings entitled "A Portfolio of Drawings of Nature as it is." Unable to make a substantial living from taxidermy, Jaques turned to railroading in Northern Minnesota during the "off season", and recorded the scenery and trains as they passed through rural Minnesota. World War I temporarily halted his painting career, but upon his return his settled in Duluth as a commercial artist with Duluth photoengraving. There, he meet the artist Clarence C. Rosenkranz, who introduced him to the oil painting technique.Jaques skills were eventually recognized by the American Natural History Museum in New York, and he was invited to join the institution as a museum artist. He became a member of the Salmagundi Club whose membership has included the likes of Louis Comfort Tiffany, StanfordWhite and Sir Winston Churchill, and which is devoted to serving the needs of fine artists in New York and around the country. Moreover, in 1940, Jaques was honored by the United States Postal Service and asked to design the Federal Duck Stamp for the U. S. Department of the Interior. The stamp is of two Black Ducks flying above Aitkin's Rice Lake and over one and a quarter million were sold. The composition relates very closely to the two oil paintings presently offered. Francis Lee Jaques produced many outstanding wildlife paintings during his lifetime and illustrated more than seventy books. These include Dr. Thomas Roberts's Birds of Minnesota, William O. Douglas's My Wilderness and several books by Sigurd F. Olson. He is also famed with inventing the duorama which was a smaller version of the diorama. Above all, however, his paintings reveal an abiding love of nature and an intense understanding of animal behavior and anatomy.
