Artists include: FREDERICK CHRISTIAN LEWIS SNR (1779-1856), was an eminent painter, etcher, aquatint and stipple engraver. Lewis transformed numerous natural history paintings into aquatints. His superlative skills as an engraver led to frequent commissions from Royalty, and to his contribution to J. M. W. Turner's Liber Studiorum, a collection of seventy-one etchings with mezzotint, which greatly influenced landscape painting. Apart from the River Dart volume he produced a similar volume on the Exe. As the frames have been scratched buyers may prefer to have the etchings sent in their mounts alone. Postage costs will then be reduced. None of these etchings have been examined out of the frames.

ROBERT HILLS (1769-1844). English Painter & Etcher. He exhibited six or seven drawings annually at the Royal Academy and was a member of the Society of Water-colours. His favourite subjects were cattle, sheep, donkeys, pigs, horses and above all deer. The British Museum holds the artist's collection of his own etchings, over 1200 of the finest impressions and proofs.

HERBERT RAILTON. (1857-1910). I have added a score of the ORIGINAL SIGNED ARTWORK DRAWINGS in pen & ink on card by Herbert Railton for: EDINBURGH - A Historical and Topographical Account of the City, Written by M. G. Williamson. Methuen, 1906. After his drawings of a railway accident at Blackburn station (1881) were published in the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, Railton went on to become one of the leading illustrators of his day. Railton provided many black and white illustrations for magazines and books - including editions of books by famous authors such Oliver Goldsmith, Henry Fielding, Samuel Johnson and travel guides, such as Coaching Days and Coaching Ways. Despite my best efforts, the images of these Railton drawings do not adequately show the contrast between the black ink and the white board.

Egypt. General View of Luxor, from the Nile
Superb facsimile of one of David Roberts original full plate lithographs of Egypt which were produced from 1842-49, (approx 19 x 12 inches), superbly mounted, framed and glazed; the frame reminiscent of Ancient Egypt.
Late C20th - 70 x 55.5 cm

The Temple of Amun at Luxor from the single obelisk now left before the First Pylon at the north end, past the heavy columns of Horemhab’s colonnade.

The first set produced was the Subscription edition with the lithograph carefully hand-coloured. First edition prints have become highly sought after and a copy of this lithograph is currently on sale for £850, unframed. Modern printing techniques have produced facsimiles that, apart from freedom of staining or spotting, are difficult to distinguish from the originals.

Dated June 1st 1848 - Half plate image 25 x 35 cm. Mounted size 51 x 61 cm

David Roberts (1796 - 1864) original full plate lithographs of Egypt were produced from 1842-49.

The first set produced was the Subscription edition with the lithograph carefully hand-coloured. First edition prints have become highly sought after. The Mathaf Gallery, after 30 years of business, still leads the world in 19th century paintings of Arabia, known as Orientalism a market that it pioneered. These aquatints are photographed sealed in a cellophane wrapper with the stock ticket of the Mathaf Gallery affixed. The descriptions are taken from these labels and give a secure provenance to these items and that is the reason for taking the pictures through the wrapping, even though its reflections make the images a little less clear. They are offered at half the Gallery’s prices.

Engraving. Lacaze-Duthiers, Henri de
Fine steel engraved presentation portrait. This huge sheet of paper 630 x 725 mm overall has plate mark 295 x 250 mm within which the high quality steel engraving is printed on India paper.
1887 - 63 x 72.5 cm

Félix Joseph Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers, 1821-1901, was a French biologist, anatomist and zoologist. He was a leading authority in regards to molluscs. Lacaze-Duthiers became a professor at the University of Lille in 1854 and at the Museum of Natural History in 1865. Beginning in 1868 he was a professor in the faculty of natural sciences at the Sorbonne. His principal works were on the individual development of polyps and on the comparative anatomies of molluscs and coelenterates. During the post-Darwinian period, Lacaze-Duthiers was the leader of the opposition to the teaching of evolution in France. He founded marine zoological stations in Roscoff (1872) and Bagnols (1881) and the Archive of Experimental Zoology. It is a portrait given by his pupils and friends in homage for his scientific achievements, presented at a conference at the Faculty of Science in Paris in 1887. Accompanying the engraving is a letter in French dated 9 March 1887 from the conference organiser covering 9 copies of the engraving being sent to England including Thomas Henry Huxley PC FRS FLS, the English comparative anatomist, known as Darwin's Bulldog for his advocacy of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.

Gould. Ciconia Alba - Stork.
Lithographed by H. C. Richter after John Gould. Lithograph with exceptional original hand colour, framed & glazed. 565 x 735mm overall; mount window 340 x 505mm.
c1855 - 56.5 x 73.5 cm

A Stork feeding frogs to three nestlings. Behind another nests on a chimney, with windmills beyond. The print was published in John Gould's monumental ornithological book, 'The Birds of Great Britain', which was issued in parts between 1862 and 1873. Apparently it also appeared in the Birds of Australia, 1848-69. The quality of the hand colouring is superb as is the condition of this splendid lithograph set off in a hand ruled bevelled mount within a tasteful wooden frame. An unframed copy in slightly less good condition is currently on sale at £850.
