Arms of the Dutchess of Kendal
1 Arms of the Dutchess of Kendal
England Very Good Plus Fine Art Print 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall Hogarth, William 
This is a late 18th century English engraving after an oil painting by William Hogarth [1697-1764]. Arms of the Dutchess (sic!) of Kendal (and Munster; German Countess Ehrengard von der Schulenburg, Princess of Eberstein). Presumed circa 1790. Inscribed: Hogarth invt., A. M. Ireland sculpt. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.5 x 5.5 inches. Size as matted is 11.5 x 10.5. Over all very clean save for very light toning/foxing along the left side of the left arms bearer. Niemeyer Rare Books provides to following interesting information: "Obviously unmarried and without issue, the lady is said to have been close to George I of Great Britain of the House of Hanover and followed him soon after his accession to the throne (1714), where he endowed her from 1716 on with several titles of nobility. Due to various German specimens, yet indeed also some absurdities, Hogarth seems to have worked the arms still before the deeds of 1716. Trusler not least praises the simplicity and elegance in the attitudes of the two young lateral arms bearers."

Della grandezza dell' originale, a copper engraving presumed from Le antichita di Ercolano, Tome IV
2 Della grandezza dell' originale, a copper engraving presumed from Le antichita di Ercolano, Tome IV
1792 Very Good Plus Fine Art Print 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Piroli, Tommaso 
This is an Italian copper engraving after a design by Tommaso Piroli, ca. 1752-1824. This print is labeled Plate 3 [Tav. 3] and is presumed to be from "Le antichita di Ercolano, Tome IV" but this is not certain and it may instead be from the artist's mural series of Roman ruins. In any case a most charming engraving in desirable condition. Presumed circa 1792 as the 6 volumes of Ercolano were published between 1789 and 1807. Possibly inspired by copper etchings from "Raccolta di Pitture d'Ercolano", a collection of prints which was published between the years 1752 - 1762. The prints of both editions were made from frescos and artifacts excavated in Herculaneum. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.25 x 7.75 inches. Size as matted is 12.5 x 14. Over all very clean save for very light toning/soiling, almost imperceptible.

A few of the plates with the original tissue guards intact. Slight age darkening at the edges of the pull-out map, Tyrol. A Very Good text block with Very Good to Near Fine lithographs.

7 Henriet, Frédéric C. Daubigny et son oeuvre gravé Eaux-fortes et bois inédits par C. Daubigny, Karl Daubigny, Léon Lhermitte
Paris, France A. Lévy 1875 First Edition Half-Leather Very Good Minus 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Signed by Author
Ce n'est pas une édition bilingue. Texte en français uniquement, pas en anglais. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in French only, not in English. First edition. Presumed first printing. Signed by the author. Printed and bound in France by Albert Quantin, imprimeur. Ex library with all the usual ex library markings: University of Chicago Library acquisition plate to the front pastedown, de-accession stamps to the front and rear FEPs, the title page and the text page following the title page. The two FEPs opposite the front and rear pastedowns neatly excised. 10.5 x 7 inches. Contemporary three-quarter morocco, brown, with matching brown buckram boards. With fairly crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the hubbed spine. Hinges strong; text block solidly attached to the binding, except that binding weak at pp. 132-33 with subsequent gathering loose. Unbumped spine head and tail, and the corners are sharp. T.E.G. 241 numbered pages. With 8 illustrations including 7 plates. Note that apparently eleven illustrations were originally contemplated for this edition, as reflected in the "Table des gravures contenues dans ce volume", but that only 8 were included. There is no evidence that any illustrated pages or plates have been excised from this volume. Present are: half title page illustration [not a plate as such], frontispiece portrait, and plates opposite pages 31, 57, 76, 91, 167, and 174. The plates called for opposite pages 128, 209 and 227 are not present. Note that the original engraving Le village pres Bonnieres, by Karl Daubigny, called for at 174 actually appears at 76. Unable to identify the plate appearing at 174. Of the plates present in this first edition, 5 appear to be original engravings and 2 are héliogravures. All plates are exceptionally clean and there are no ex library stamps on them. Note that the frontispiece page is semi-detached along the hinge but holding fast. On the colophon page [between pages 226 and 228] there is a gift inscription from the author, "a M. [?], hommage de l'auteur" and his possible signature, F. Henriet, all in soft pencil. Apart from the ex library markings, and very light and infrequent scattered foxing, the book is clean. A Very Good Minus copy. Downgraded due to the ex library status but upgraded due to the very good state of the plates and due to the presence of the rare, if genuine, author's signature.

Examples of Classic Ornament from Greece & Rome, Drawn from the Originals by Lewis Vulliamy, Spiers, Richard Phene
10 Spiers, Richard Phene Examples of Classic Ornament from Greece & Rome, Drawn from the Originals by Lewis Vulliamy
London, England Spiers, Richard Phene 1907 First Edition Thus Unbound Very Good Minus Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Vulliamy, Lewis; Moses, Henry 
Presumed first [and only?] printing of the first edition thus. The plates originally appeared in "Examples of Ornamental Sculpture in Architecture, drawn from the Originals in the Years 1818-21," published in 1825. Preface dated August 1907. Presumed printed and bound in Great Britain. This edition printed by the publisher from the original copper plates of the artist. Ex library but with very few of the usual ex library markings, and in any case a non-circulating copy. 19.5 x 13.25 inches. With two large folded sheets of text, including a title page, a preface page, and four pages of explanatory text for the plates, a headpiece illustration and a plan of the Temple of Apollo Didymaeus. With 20 unbound B&W full-page plates, as called for. All plates drawn on copper by Lewis Vulliamy and engraved by Henry Moses with exquisite and painstaking draughtsmanship. The paper on which the engravings are pulled appears to be mould-made cream stock. Plates 3 and 5 with a little light soiling/spotting into the plates. The remaining plates appear to be unfoxed or else with a few tiny marginal spots. All pages with minor bumping/rippling to the lower corner, in the margins only, not into the images. Tiny blindstamp of the college library to the top of the title page, scarcely noticeable. Scattered foxing to the four text pages containing notes on the plates. Else a clean copy. Housed in a contemporary port-folio of dark green buckram spine and corners and with dark green paper hardboards, the front board with elaborate black-stamped lettering. The binding lightly soiled. A library call number in small white ink hand to the spine. The port-folio with moderately bumped spine head and tail and corners. Original green cloth ties fully intact. The front pastedown of the port-folio with white label of the college library. A Very Good Minus copy. Extremely scarce in any condition. "The plates included in this work are a selection from those which were published in 1825 by Lewis Vulliamy, the architect, on his return from the tour which he made through Greece, Asia Minor, and Italy, as travelling student of the Royal Academy." The 1825 edition is virtually unobtainable. Also included with this purchase is "Examples of ornamental sculpture in architecture drawn from the originals of bronze, marble and terra cot[ta] in Greece, Asia Minor and Italy." Isha Books, New Delhi, 2013. Isha gives the original date of publication as 1823. The Isha publication, a hardback with DJ, is a crude photocopy reprint in much reduced size (11x 8.5 inches) but contains 40 plates, half of which are in the Spiers 1907 edition. Viewing the Isha publication one can appreciate the extraordinary crispness of detail in the Spiers edition.
