FAY, Theodore Sedgwick (1807-1898); and James H. DAKIN (1806-1852)

Book Description Peabody & Co.; London: O. Rich, New York, 1831. 4to. (10 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches). Engraved title vignette, 38 engraved views on 15 sheets (9 on India paper, as issued) after Dakin and others, engraved folding map by Hooker (hand-coloured in outline). (Minor foxing). Expertly bound to style in half tan calf over original period marbled paper covered boards, spine gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed in a morocco backed cloth box. Provenance: Dugas de la Boissonny (bookplate); R.L.U. (booklabel) First edition of a lovely series of New York views, rarely found complete as here. "The Peabody prints offer fascinating glimpses of New York in the 1830s" and form "a lively document of a city in the making" (Deák). The iconic images in Fay's book include Manhattan from Governor's Island, Broadway, Bowling Green, the publisher's offices on Broadway, City Hall, Elysian Fields Hoboken, Coffee-House Slip, Pearl Street, Fulton Market, Blackwell's Island, and La Grange Terrace. The work was originally intended to be issued in ten parts, of which only eight were actually issued; however, the last "part," consisted of just two supplementary leaves of text, misnumbered [43] through 46. This has led Howes and others to state the book has only forty-six pages, when in fact it should collate: preliminary leaf,[i]-58, [43]-46, as here. Of the plates, the two issued in the final part are almost always missing (the Episcopal Seminary and three other scenes; and LaGrange Terrace), but both are present here. The street map of lower Manhattan to 52nd Street, engraved by Hooker expressly for this work, is oriented with north to the south and is divided into districts; streets are named and docks are identified.

Book Description New York: Peabody and Co., 1831-[1834]., 1834. 4to., (10 6/8 x 8 4/8 inches). Engraved title-page with vignette. Double-page engraved map of ". the City of New York" by William Hooker, with original hand-colour in outline. 24 engravings on 12 sheets (two printed on India paper, one laid down, one tipped-in), and 3 full-page engravings, by Dakin and others (some occasionally heavy browning and spotting, tissue guards browned). Contemporary half red roan, marbled paper boards, gilt (extremities a bit scuffed). EXCEPTIONALLY RARE, COMPLETE SET OF FAY'S VIEWS. Originally intended to be issued in ten parts, of which only eight were ever issued. This copy is bound from all those published, including the final plate and the misnumbered text. Both Fay and Dakin were very young men, embarking on fledgling careers as writer and architect in New York, when they respectively wrote the text and illustrated this extraordinary book. Both went on to illustrious careers. Fay as an author and diplomat, Dakin as one of New York's finest architects. At the time he created these images, he was also engaged in designing the Gothic New York University. The iconic images in Fay's book include Manhattan from Governor's Island, Broadway, Bowling Green, the publisher's offices on Broadway, City Hall, Elysian Fields Hoboken, Coffee-House Slip, Pearl Street, Fulton Market, Blackwell's Island, and the very rare La Grange Terrace. Together with the earlier published views of New York by George Melksham Bourne, "the Peabody prints offer fascinating glimpses of New York in the 1830s" and form "a lively document of a city in the making" (Deák). But by comparison, Deák prefers the present set over Bourne's views: "The Peabody prints, which are somewhat larger, are more energetically conceived, with a thrust toward a painterly effect." Scarce: Stokes notes complete sets at the New York Public Library and the New-York Historical Society. Sets have also been located at the Library of Congress and Boston Public Library.
