Malus communis. Pommier commun

by APPLE) Bessa, P. (illus). Jarry (engraved by)

Condition: See description


Paris.. Ca. 1801- 1819.. Stipple engraving printed in color with added hand color, plate 9 x 12 inches on sheet 10 x 16 inches. Delicate antique script notation beneath apple, two 1/4 inch adhesive squares to upper edge of verso (not affecting image). Very good condition. An exquisite example of French botanical art at its high point in the early nineteenth century, this fine print of an apple is by Pancrace Bessa (a contemporary of P.J. Redoute), interpreted in the delicate medium of stipple engraving by Jarry. It was published in "Traite des Arbres et Arbustes que l'on cultive en france en pleine terre. Seconde edition 'nouveau Duhamel' considerablement augmentee" (Dunthorne 243), a multi volume work documenting trees and shrubs cultivated in France and a showcase for the artistry of P.J. Redoute and Pancrace Bessa. This is plate 14 from Volume 2. .

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
