Item Description: Paris, Roret, 1842-1857. 5 volumes. Large-4to (345 x 255mm). With 500 engraved plates and 1 large folding map (the 4 maps are put together). Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lines and lettering, marbled sides (very slightly rubbed). A fine complete copy of this very scarce flora of the Near East (from Greece eastward to Afghanistan and southward to Abyssinia). "This fine work owes its origin to an expedition made in 1839 by the French politician and botanist Count François Hippolyte Jaubert (1798-1874), and his friend Charles F.M. Texier (1802-1871), the archeologist, to Asia Minor. On his return Jaubert decided to publish illustrations of the new and little known species of plants he had collected, with some collected by earlier travellers . The best botanical artists of Paris - J. and F. Gontier, E. Lesèble, de Ligniville, Maubert, Riocreux, Willy, Mlle. Champeaux, Mesdames Gouffé, Hublier and Spach - were employed for the plates . All beautifully and accurately drawn and engraved. Historically the most interesting are a number by Claude Aubriet . Nicolas Robert and Pierre Redouté. Jaubert planned and directed the work and even wrote part of the text, but most of this was done by Edouard Spach" (Journal Soc. Bibl. Nat. Hist. I, 9). Edmond Boissier the famous author of 'Flora Orientalis' considered the 'Illustrationes' "par le soin apporté à la partie descriptive et par la beauté des figures, un des livres les plus precieux pour la Flore d'Orient". Some paper discoloration at the upper margin (circa 1/2 cm).Nissen BBI, 958; Stafleu & Cowan 3303. Bookseller Inventory # 9330

Quant aux planches coloriées elles sont 'l'oeuvre du père de l'auteur." (d'Aguilar).The title printed on the title-page is as follows: 'La Zoologie Agricole. Ouvrage comprenant l'histoire entière des animaux nuisibles et des animaux utiles'. "Grande est l'ambition de l'oeuvre puisqu'elle est annoncée couvrir l'ensemble de cette discipline: les plantes d'ornement, les fruit, les céréales, les plantes potagères, les arbres des fôrets et des routes, les animaux domestiques, les animaux propres à être acclimatés, etc." (d'Aguilar). The 'Plantes d'Ornement' is the only section published of this work. Our copy includes the printed wrappers of all 15 parts. The colouring of the plates is of the highest quality and very attractive.Provenance: Bookplate of J. d'Aguilar.Nissen ZBI, 402. Bookseller Inventory # 8838

Historia Naturalis Testaceorum Britanniae, or, the British: COSTA, E.M. DA.

Item Description: London, printed for the Author., 1778. 4to (300 x 235mm). pp. xii, (2), 254, vii, (1) with 17 engraved hand-coloured plates. Contemporary calf, old rebacking with gilt lettered label. Printed in English and French in parallel columns. This rather uncommon work was issued with plain as well as coloured plates. The list of subscribers lists 111 subscribers, indicating coloured and plain copies. 22 were Fellows of the Royal Society, the list of names gives some measure of his rehabilitation. The work is dedicated to Sir Ashton Lever who surely must have bought many specimens from da Costa and he may have helped him in other ways. Emanuel Mendes da Costa (1717-1791) was imprisoned for embezzling the Royal Society while serving as a clerk.B.M.(N.H.)I, 389; See also P.J.P. Whitehead, Emanuel Mendes da Costa. 'Bull. Br. Mus (Nat.

Item Description: Napoli, Tramater, (1829) 1832-1859. 11 volumes. 4to (270 x 220mm). With 377 mostly hand-coloured engraved plates. Later half vellum, gilt ornamented spines with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Copies of the above survey of the animal kingdom of Southern Italy are extremely rare. In the last decades only 2 copies have been offered for sale. We offered a copy in 1979 which had 380 plates and a copy was offered in the Bradley Martin sale (Sotheby's New York, December 12, 1989) with 384 plates. The Bradley Martin copy fetched $ 31.000 (without premium). As far as we can trace no complete copy of this work has been offered for sale. The work was published from 1832 to 1875 in 114 parts and Nissen gives a plate total of 408 plates. It was edited by Oronzio Gabriele Costa (1787-1867) professor at the University of Naples and continued by his son Achille Costa. Our set is almost complete up to the year 1859. Davies Sherborn in the 'Journal of the Soc. For Bibliography of Natural History' Vol. I, part 2 pp. 35-47 gives a detailed collation of the work. This is bibliographically a very complex work and the collations given vary. In several cases we have more plates or text than called for. Two volumes have the original half calf binding and in order to have a nicely uniform-bound set, slipcases have been made by a former owner, identical to the other volumes. A detailed collation of the work can be sent on request.Nissen ZBi, 971; Wood 301, calling for 382 plates. Bookseller Inventory # 9467

Item Description: London, Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1846-1852. 2 volumes. Folio (375 x 270mm). pp. xi, (1), 1-250; (2), 251- 534, with 86 lithographed plates of which 85 splendidly handcoloured. Contemporary green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments, marbled sides (minor skilful repair to bindings). One of the rarest and most beautiful iconographies on butterflies. The magnificently handcoloured plates were drawn and lithographed by William C. Hewitson. Hewitson was a very wealthy naturalist and formed the most complete collection of diurnal lepidoptera of the world (now in the British Museum). "Hewitson was a most accomplished artist and scrupulously accurate draughtsman, and his figures, whether of birds' eggs or butterflies, are drawn and coloured with conscientious care . In his own line, as a pictorial describer of butterflies, Hewitson stands unrivalled" (DNB. IX pp. 758-59). The work was published in 54 parts. The first 31 parts by Doubleday and due to his early death the work was continued by Westwood. The work is fully discussed by F. Hemming in the "Journal of the Soc. for Bibl. of Nat. Hist. Vol. I,11. pp. 335-464". 'The number of new species figured by Doubleday is very considerable, and is even larger than appears at first sight' (Hemming)."Westwood remarked that the butterfly collection of the British Museum was 'one of the finest ever formed', and Doubleday based his work on that collection, gaining other information. Particularly on butterfly habits, from manuscripts and drawings also in the British Museum. The famous collection of drawings by John Abbot painted in America and sent to England, plus those of General Hardwicke's collection of Indian drawings gave much of this information"(Gilbert. Butterfly Collectors and Painters p. 82). The first plate, an anatomical plate, was never coloured. A fine copy without any foxing.Horn & Schenkling 5034: "Sehr selten"; Nissen ZBI, 1150.

Item Description: London, Longmans, Green & Co. (1873-1875 ?). 3 parts. 4to (295 x 230mm). pp. 16, with 18 (12 hand-coloured) plates. Unbound in original printed wrappers. Junk describes the work in his JUNK RARA II pp. 136 as follows: "Part 1 (February 1873). Coloured plates 1-6 (37 figures) with letterpress, pages 1-8. Contents: Papilio constantinus, evombar. Pieris manahari, antsianaka, cebron, capricornus, rhodanus. Eronia vohemara, verulanus. Amauris nossima. Salamis anteva. Junoniakowara. Acraea satis, pentapolis, peneleos, polydestes, pharsalus. Part 2 (Sept. 1874). Coloured plates 7-12 (41 figures) with letterpress, page 9-16. Contents: Acraea manadaza, masamba, masonala, hova. Godartia crossleyi, trajanus, Neptis biafra. Euryphene camarensis, ribensis, comus, nivaria, porphirion. Harma capella, cyclades, ciceronis. Mycalesis vola, ankova, iboina, antahala. Part 3 (1875 ?). Black plates 13-18 (35 figures) without letterpress. Contents: Papilio colonna, philonoë, andronicus, Acraea cydonis, sambavae, rabbaiea, satis. Godartia wakefieldii. Diadema usambara. Charaxes hadnanus, andara, andriba, analeva, andranadorus. Mycalesis avelona, Erebia rakoto, ankaratra, passandava, n.sp.? Part 1 and 2 contain figures and descriptions of new species chiefly from Madagascar, then from the Camaroons, Old Calabar and Ribé (East Africa). The descriptions are copied (literally) from Ward's 2 papers (published in 'Entomologist's Monthly Magazine' volumes 6-9 and 8-9): 'Descriptions of new species of Diurnal Lepidopt. From Madagascar'. and 'Descriptions of new species of African Diurnal Lepidoptera'. The second paper is continued also through volume 10 of the 'E.E.M.' and I have no doubt that the species described in the continuation are those figured there in the 3rd part, which has no letterpress. This very beautiful work is highly important for the knowledge of the East African Fauna, as it contains 55 new species. Ward has not written any other work and also the "A.L." were - perhaps owing to the death of the author - soon interrupted. The book may be considered as the rarest of all modern works on Butterflies. My copy is the first I have ever seen, though I have searched for the book for more than 20 years. But, what is the chief thing: my copy is an unicum as it includes a third part quite unknown till today, which, as it seems, had never been in the trade; for neither are the plates coloured nor has it a letterpress, and the numbers of the plates as well as the name of the butterflies are not printed but only neatly written by pencil". We presume that Junk was wrong when he thought his copy to be an unicum, as we have sold a few copies in recent years. Bookseller Inventory # 9344

The title of the first edition (1762) mentions that the insects were collected in the Paris area ".des insectes qui se trouvent aux environs de Paris.", a fact which was omitted in the title of the other editions. ". Geoffroy published a work on the insects of the Paris area in which he used new criteria of classification: absence or presence, number, form and texture of the wings; and distribution of the various orders according to the number of tarsomeres in the tarsi. The latter criterion attracted the attention of Linnaeus, who often quoted Geoffroy." (D.S.B. V, pp. 355). The plates are finely hand-coloured.Nissen ZBI, 1522. Bookseller Inventory # 9283

Item Description: Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1829-1836 (-1838). 5 volumes. 8vo (230 x 150mm). pp. xiv, 400; 407, (1); 326; 486; 415, (1), with 270 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary red half calf, gilt lettered spines (some hinges a bit weak) & last volume in original printed wrappers. First edition. The stock of the first 2 volumes was destroyed by fire and both volumes were reprinted in 1837. The last volume 5, which is mostly lacking was written by Ch. Aubé and must have been issued in a small number. P.F. Dejean was called 'the first great coleopterist'. Together with Boisduval, who was his private curator, he published the above work on European coleoptera. "The great name in coleopterology during the early nineteenth century was P.F.M.A. Dejean (1780-1845), with a career quite exceptional among entomologists; a general who rose to the title "pair de France" and served as Napoleon's first aide-de-champ in the battle of Waterloo. Dejean was an ardent collector and eventually in part by purchase, brought together the largest private insect collection of his time. He lost no opportunity to fetch rare specimens, which is amply evident from what was told about his somewhat unmilitary behaviour during raging war" (R.F. Smith a.o. History of Entomology pp. 125-6). Dejean added insects to his collection from the fields of Waterloo. His collection numbered 22,399 species in 1837. Some foxing as usual.Horn & Schenkling 4602; Nissen ZBI, 1062.

Item Description: Nürnberg, in der Felseckerschen Buchhandlung, 1793-1813. 110 parts, loose in old wrappers and preserved in 9 boxes. Oblong small-8vo (125 x 95mm). With 2640 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates, each plate with descriptive text. The attractive uniform boxes, with gilt ornamented and lettered spines and marbled sides are of a later date. An attractive set of all that was published by Panzer, of the most beautiful miniature entomological work ever published. Panzer published parts 1-109 and the final part of this set was published by Geyer. The splendid illustrations are of an unsurpassed beauty and exactness. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829) was a German entomologist; regional physician in Hersbruck near Nuremberg and lecturer at the Collegium Medicum in Nuremberg. "There does not exist a more accurate or useful work. The figures are drawn and etched by the famous Sturm, the best entomological artist on the continent; . while the descriptions, although frequently too short, are written by hand of a master. The system of Fabricius is followed and the work altogether is highly essential to every one who writes upon the entomology of Europe" (Swainson).A continuation to Panzer's work was published by Herrich-Schaeffer and is very scarce due to a decreasing number of subscribers."Die alte bayrische Schule der naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen hat sich unsterbliche Verdienste besonders um die Entomologie erworben. Sie hat die schönsten Abbildungswerke dieser Wissenschaft geliefert" (Junk. Rara II, p. 142).Jacob Sturm (1771-1848) was born in Nürnberg. His father Johann Georg Sturm was an engraver. Jacob Sturm was the editor and illustrator of several natural history works such as his 'Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen'. Apart from this he illustrated a great number of the finest natural history works published at that period in South Germany.Added to the series are:The original backcovers bound in brown half morocco of all the 110 parts with the printed names of the insects contained in each part.The 'Catalogus systematicus' by Panzer of parts 1-108 'Index systematicus methodo Fabriciana', Nürnberg 1793-1809.Saunders, E.

Item Description: Hamburgi et Kilonii, C.E. Bohnii, 1778. 8vo (192 x 115mm). pp. (12), 178, with title-vignette. Recent wrappers. Scarce work of this famous entomologist. Fabricius was one of the most famous pupils of Linnaeus, with whom he formed a lifelong friendship. He greatly increased the knowledge of entomology and gained a wide reputation abroad. "Fabricius's (1778) 'Philosophia Entomologica' was the first textbook of entomology and introduced an improved classification based on mouthparts; this kept natural groups together that Linnaeus's system had separated according to wing structures. Fabricius's small book also covered theoretical principles of study, nomenclature, description, and classification" (Damkaer, The Copepodologist's cabinet p. 69).Horn-Schenkling 6197.
