DRESSER, H.E. - A history of the birds of Europe, including all the species inhabiting the western palaearctic region. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=9868&s_currency= DRESSER, H.E.

A history of the birds of Europe, including all the species inhabiting the western palaearctic region.

London, published by the author, 1871-1896. 9 volumes (including the supplement). Large-4to (315 x 245mm). With 723 (721 handcoloured) lithographic plates. Contemporary red half morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines, lettering and ornaments, topedges gilt.

An attractively bound set with the rare supplement of this monumental work on the European avifauna. The excellent drawings of the plates were executed chiefly by J.G. Keulemans, some others by J. Wolf and E. Neale. "Dresser's text is highly scientific, his aim being to give a comprehensive account of all the European birds. Each species mentioned in the text was illustrated... The usual 'Gouldian' formula is followed with most birds perched either on a branch or on the ground, fairly detailed foreground plants and terrain, a lightly sketched background, pale blue tinted sky. As the birds themselves, there is usually one per page for the larger species, two where it is necessary to show the difference in plumage between male and female, and an occasional chick or immature bird" (Jackson. Bird Illustrators, p. 94). Some occasional light foxing as is usual with this book. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Moore Stevens. Anker 120; Nissen IVB, 267.

JORDAN, A. & J. FOURREAU. - Icones ad floram Europae novo fundamento instaurandam spectantes. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=9765&s_currency= JORDAN, A. & J. FOURREAU.

Icones ad floram Europae novo fundamento instaurandam spectantes.

Paris, Savy, 1866-1903. 3 volumes. Folio (400 x 305mm). With 501 finely hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half calf, spines in 5 compartments with gilt lettering.

This is one of the rarest and most beautifully illustrated and detailed botanical works. The edition must have been very small and no fully coloured copy has been offered for sale since many decades. The famous de Belder collection had a complete copy but only the first 280 plates coloured. We sold a copy of the first 2 vols in 1980. The first 2 volumes are by Claude Thomas Alexis Jordan and Jules Fourreau. The publication was interrupted by the death of Fourreau on Dec. 1870 at the battle of Nuits during the Franco-German war. Publication was not resumed until 1903 by Camille A. Jordan who published the final third volume. The 3 volumes were published as 100 fascicles over 37 years. Claude Thomas Alexis Jordan (1814-1897) was a French botanist and according to Stafleu 'whose extremely narrow species concept led to 'jordanism' and Jordan-species (jordanons) vs. Linnaean species'. "The drawings? are also admirable, and from a botanical point of view beyond praise: ? Jordan, Alexis and Fourreau, Jules, 'Icones ad floram Europae?, illustrative of 606 microspecies (jordanons) for the most part distinguished only by minute and subtle characters and thus needing scrupulous accuracy for their portrayal"(Blunt & Stearn p. 269). For his research Alexis Jordan had a huge private experimental garden that he gradually increased to 12,000 square meters with 400 flower beds containing approximately 50,000-60.000 plants. He likewise created one of the largest herbariums known to exist. The exquisitely hand-coloured engraved plates are by C. Delorme, J. Fourreau, P. Gallaud and A Mignot. An attractive uniformly bound copy in mint condition. Stafleu & Cowan 3416; Grat Flower Books 61; Nissen BBI, 1008.

DEJEAN, P.F. & BOISDUVAL, J.A. - Iconographie et histoire naturelle des Coléoptères d'Europe. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=8213&s_currency= DEJEAN, P.F. & BOISDUVAL, J.A.

Iconographie et histoire naturelle des Coléoptères d'Europe.

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
