Plate XLVI Long-billed Curlew, Willet, Semipalmated Tattler, White-rumped Sandpiper

By Studer, Jacob Henry. Jasper, Theodore (Illus.).

Original Chromolithograph from Jacob Henry Studer's The Birds of North America. Folio. 11.25 x 14.5 inches, Archivally matted in sized to 16 x 20 inches, and suitable for framing. Jacob Henry Studer (1840-1904), printer and publisher, utilized chromolithography- color printed lithograph- as an affordable means of capturing both the brilliant plumage and the delicate shading of birds depicted in their natural surroundings by Theodore Jasper, doctor and amateur ornithologist. Jasper followed the tradition of John James Audubon (1770-1851), who was preceded by Alexander Wilson (1766-1813), in an effort to document and render all species of birds found in nineteenth century North America. Drawing from accounts of not only Audubon and Wilson- supreme naturalists in their own right- but also the most eminent nature writers of the period. The insightful text which accompanies the plate provides a lively account of each species and the native American landscape of the nineteenth century. Although inspired by the artistry and genius of John James Audubon, Theodore Jasper's compositions are populated with a multitude of birds rendered in a two dimensional style, reminiscent of Alexander Wilson's engravings for his introductory work on America's birds: American Ornithology, or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States, Philadelphia 1808-14. (Bennet 63, Wood 406,585, Sitwell, 145).

Amaryllis Divers [Hippeastra] 510

By Van Houtte, Louis. Lemaire, Charles and M. Scheidweiler.

Amaryllis Divers [Hippeastra] A Fine original hand-finished color-printed lithograph (chromolithograph) produced by Horto Van Houtteano. Folio (9 7/8 x 13 3/8 Inches). Elegantly matted in dark brown rag mat with gold French line decoration. Sized to 18 x 21.5 inches. In recognition of the burgeoning interest in horticulture throughout 19th Century Europe and the grand discoveries of the plant hunters worldwide, several botanical periodicals were produced to document and illustrate the beauty of new botanical specimens from around the globe. Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe, published in Ghent from 1845 to 1888 and edited by Charles Lemaire and Louis van Houtte, was among the finest horticultural journals produced at the time. The editors were experienced botanical engravers, botanists and nurserymen in their own right and brought their talents to this glorious publication which documented both the newly discovered exotics and the popularly cultivated plants of Europe, Asia, the Americas and beyond. Charles Lemaire was an engraver for P. J. Redoute's masterful works Les Liliaces, (Paris c. 1802-16) and Les Roses, both Folio and subsequent Octavo editions (Paris c.1817-24, 1835). Louis Van Houtte, proprietor of Establishment Louis Van Houtte, the largest and most esteemed nursery on the continent during the mid-19th century, commissioned his own team of plant explorers to travel and gather previously undiscovered orchids and other exotics for initial cultivation in his exclusive greenhouses, and then subsequent illustration and documentation in his Flore des Serres series. Production of the work ceased with the death of Louis van Houtte. Rich and luminous, this plate is printed from stone in multiple colors and then finished by hand at the printing studios amidst the Van Houtte gardens. (DeBelder, Sitwell, Plesch).
