Descripción

F.B. Spilsbury was a surgeon on board the H.M.S. Tigre, which together with the H.M.S. Theseus, under the command of Commodore Sir Sydney Smith, were sent on a naval mission to the Holy Land and Syria. This operation was launched as part of the overall mission to counter the military campaigns of Napoleon in the Middle East in 1799 and 1800. Spilsbury's original on-site sketches of famous sites and local peoples were redrawn in London by Daniel Orme. They were etched in aquatint by Joseph Constantine Stadler, a prolific engraver, who worked in London and created works after some of the leading artists of the day, including J.F.W. Turner. Edward Orme, the publisher, was a London artist and printseller, serving as engraver to King George III from 1799 to 1820, and to the Prince of Wales (later King George IV) from 1817 to 1830. These prints are characteristic of those made during Regency period, a time of exploration of the Middle East spurred by Napoleon's explorations and conquests in Egypt. Often these expeditions were published as books, containing descriptions and illustrations of the ancient architecture, customs and culture of indigenous peoples. Generally very good with the usual light scattered toning, soiling, soft creases, mostly marginal. Colors bright. N° de ref. de la librería 000081

Descripción de la librería

George Glazer opened his art and antiques gallery in 1993, and since the beginning the emphasis has been on the themes of exploration and discovery as embodied by globes, prints, maps and art. The gallery's unusual ambiance reflects its owner -- scholarly and intellectual, but with an eye for the decorative and a sense of humor that revels in the offbeat. Featured items include: Antique World Globes -- huge selection; floor and table, terrestrial and celestial, orrerys and armillary spheres. Maps - - 19th C. American maps and atlases; celestial charts. Prints and Paintings -- botanical, bird, sporting, maritime, fashion and costume, architectural and horses. Books -- leather and colorplate.
