Ruskin's The Stones of Venice and The Seven Lamps of Architecture "with their obsession with the function and aesthetics of architecture, over and beyond its history and practice? In the most famous chapter, "The nature of Gothic", which was twice reprinted in his lifetime first for the inauguration of the London Working Men's College in , and second by William Morris in , "Ruskin argued that under conditions of industrialization and the division of labour, social disharmony and industrial unrest were bound to occur, because the previously expressive craftsman - Ruskin's ideal working man - had been reduced to the condition of a machine" op.
With an appealing provenance, inscribed on the front free endpaper of volume I: "G. Geoffrey Fletcher was a British artist and art critic, best known for his book The London Nobody Knows and a series of similar books popular during the 60s and 70s. His detailed and delicate paintings and drawings of London landscapes often of unfashionable, neglected, or dilapidated subjects owe a debt to Ruskin's own penetrating eye.

VIII, 4 , , 1 pp. With 8 steel-engraved plates including the frontispiece the 5 signed ones engraved by Pearson and a folding map of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and the Gulf, hand-coloured in outline lithographed by Edward Weller. Red cloth. First edition only edition until a facsimile of a very detailed and well-illustrated account of a British naval campaign to suppress the East African slave trade in the years to , published only eight years after the end of the United States' Civil War and the abolition of slavery there. Slavery was not outlawed in the Ottoman Empire which at the time of publication included Egypt and what is now Iraq until , and in Iran and most of the Gulf States not until the 20th century.
He operated primarily in and around the Gulf, Oman and Zanzibar and captured seven slave ships during those two years. The illustrations show the Dryad and some of the slave ships, individual and group portraits of slaves encountered during the campaign, and views of ports where slave trading occurred. One of the group portraits was engraved after a photograph made by one of the Dryad's officers and other illustrations after drawings by other officers.
The first chapter relates Colomb's voyage to Aden, where he took command of the Dryad, and the next two chapters provide extensive background information to place the account of the campaign in context. Colomb's account of his own campaign includes chapters on individual regions Bombay, Muscat and Oman, the Gulf, Madagascar, Zanzibar, etc. Colomb was promoted to Admiral after his retirement from active duty. The book is sometimes mistakenly ascribed to his younger brother, John Charles Ready Colomb. Spine sunned; insignificant foxing in the folding map, but otherwise in fine condition.

Coldeway on the front paste-down of each volume. Often referred to as the most sumptuous and costly of all British bird books, the plates depict scenes with more sophisticated subjects than Gould's previous works, including nests, chicks and eggs: "I also felt that there was an opportunity of greatly enriching the work by giving figures of the young of many of the species of various genera - a thing hitherto almost entirely neglected by author's, and I feel assured that this infantile age of birdlife will be of much interest for science.
Initially employed as a taxidermist [he was known as the 'bird-stuffer'] by the Zoological Society, Gould's fascination with birds began in the "late s [when] a collection of birds from the Himalayan mountains arrived at the Society's museum and Gould conceived the idea of publishing a volume of imperial folio sized hand-coloured lithographs of the eighty species, with figures of a hundred birds A Century of Birds Hitherto Unfigured from the Himalaya Mountains, Gould's friend and mentor N. Vigors supplied the text. Elizabeth Gould made the drawings and transferred them to the large lithographic stones.
Having failed to find a publisher, Gould undertook to publish the work himself; it appeared in twenty monthly parts, four plates to a part, and was completed ahead of schedule. Eventually fifty imperial folio volumes were published on the birds of the world, except Africa, and on the mammals of Australia-he always had a number of works in progress at the same time. Several smaller volumes, the majority not illustrated, were published, and he also presented more than scientific papers.
Although he did not paint the final illustrations, this description is largely correct: he was the collector especially in Australia or purchaser of the specimens, the taxonomist, the publisher, the agent, and the distributor of the parts or volumes. He never claimed he was the artist for these plates, but repeatedly wrote of the 'rough sketches' he made from which, with reference to the specimens, his artists painted the finished drawings.
The design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality. His wife was his first artist.
