[Tables of the skeleton and muscles of the human body] Bern. Siegf. Albini. Tabulae Anatomicae Musculorum Hominis.
Impensis J. & P. Knapton Londini 1747 [-1750].
Large folio, 20th century library binding, ink stamp on new endpapers; plates only, no text; 51 mostly numbered engraved plates as called for, misbound. Considerable wear to some plates with inexpert restoration. Damaged.
The English edition of Bernhard Siegfried Albinus's work on anatomy (Leiden, 1747), probably published without consent. Jan Wandelaar's sketches for the original were copied slavishly by Charles Grignion, who had no knowledge of anatomy (he later turned down a commission from George Stubbs to engrave the 'Book of the Horse' because he would have to interpret Stubbs's sketches). In two of the plates the human skeleton is accompanied by a rhinoceros, which was apparently called 'Miss Clara' and belonged to a Dutch sea captain.

Volmar d'aprés Géricault. Lith. de Villain
Lithograph, image 170 x 220mm (6½ x 8½"). Collector's stamp of [?]Paul and Véronique Sanchez verso (probably variant of L.3289).
Horse attacked by a lion, after Géricault. Prior to 1822, Géricault had been able to live without much thought to the saleability of his works owing to a comfortable annuity he received following the death of his mother. However, the loss of part of his fortune in 1822 required him to produce work designed to appeal to dealers and collectors, with pictures of horses forming a large part of his output at this time (although he had painted horses throughout his brief career). The subject of a horse attacked by a tiger was, of course, closely associated with Stubbs, Northcote and other British painters of the previous generation.

Colour-printed stipple. 494 x 393mm. 19½ x 15½". Two small creases just inside the platemark.
Mary Linwood (1755-1845) was a needle woman who exhibited her worsted embroidery or crewel embroidery in Leicester and London, and was the school mistress of a private school later known as Mary Linwood Comprehensive School. She received a medal in 1790 from the Society of Arts. For nearly seventy-five years Mary worked in worsted embroidery, producing a collection of over 100 pictures that specialised in full size copies of old masters. She opened an exhibition in the Hanover Square Rooms in 1798, which afterward travelled to Leicester Square, Edinburgh and Dublin. Mary Linwood's copies of old master paintings in crewel wool (named from the crewel or worsted wool used), in which the irregular and sloping stitches resembled brushwork, achieved great fame from the time of her first London exhibition in 1787. She met most of the crowned heads of Europe. Her exhibition in Leicester Square, London, was the first art show to be illuminated by gaslight. So successful was Mary Linwood that she was able to commission John Hoppner to paint her portrait; and John Constable's first commissioned work was to paint the background details in one of her works. The needle work pictures continued to be exhibited in Leicester square in London continuously for forty year. See Stock No: 28138 Worsted Embroidery, A Tigress, after Stubbs.

A portrait of the racehorse Marske by George Stubbs. Marske was sire of the hugely successful horse Eclipse, and was given to the Duke of Cumberland in exchange for a chestnut Arabian. Following the Duke's death he was bought by William Wildman and put to stud. With Eclipse's unbeatable Marske's stud fee doubled and some doubt was cast as to whether Marske had actually been the sire, Wildman sought to remedy this and commissioned Stubbs to paint him and he became the most successful stud in England. Mask is shown standing in a countryside scene by lake.

A man in the is centre holding a girl off the ground under a bunch of mistletoe, whilst another couple dance by a large fire place to the right, and a man carries a woman on his back to the left. In the background, a couple can be seen kissing. A line of verse is inscribed below the title, however, the attribution to Milton appears to be incorrect. The line is from 'The Seasons', 1792, by the Scottish poet James Thomson.

Geo. Stubbs pinx.t. W.m Woollett sculp.t.
Published by Tho.s Bradford, No.132 Fleet Street, London; as the Act directs, 30.th Sep. 1770.
Engraving. Sheet: 460 x 550mm (18 x 21¾"). Trimmed within plate, repairs on 3 sides.
A scene showing two men shooting at game by a cottage. George Stubbs (1724-1806) was born in Liverpool, the son of a leather worker, who spent his early career in the north, painting portraits and developing his interest in anatomy. In the later 1740s, he lived in York and supplied the illustrations for a treatise on midwifery (published 1751). Following a brief visit to Rome in 1754, he settled in Lincolnshire, where he researched his major publication, 'The Anatomy of the Horse' (1766). In about 1758, he moved to London, which remained his base. William Woollett (1735-1785). Engraver. In his plates, which unite work with the etching-needle, the dry-point and the graver, Woollett demonstrates the greatest richness and variety of execution; the rendering of water in his landscapes is particularly excellent. His works rank among the great productions of the English school of engraving. The famous Shooting Series shows a pair of city gentlemen, one of them perhaps Williarn Wildman, in four episodes from a day's outing into the Derbyshire countryside.

Cavendish was a frequent sitter in portraits and although known for her style, beauty, and her political campaigning, she was also famed for her love of gambling. Even though her own family, the Spencers, and her husband's family, the Cavendishes, were immensely wealthy, she was reported to have died deeply in debt due to her excesses.

George Stubbs. 1724 - 1806. Science into Art.
Herbert W. Rott.
Published by Prestel Publishing Ltd. 4 Bloomsbury Place, London, WC1A 2QA.
Book: D/W. Quarto. pp. 240. Illustrated colour wrappers. Profusely illustrated in both colour and monochrome throughout.
Although George Stubbs is best known for his images of hounds and horses charging round the British countryside, the painter was also an avid student of the broader animal world. This volume features gorgeous colour reproductions of paintings that highlight the painter's genius for combining realism and lyricism. It includes numerous drawings and prints - among them the exceptional studies for his 'The Anatomy of the Horse' series. Informative essays discuss Stubbs' superb aesthetic sensibility, his far-reaching scientific studies, and his place in the pantheon of eighteenth-century European painters.
