Bibliothèque cynégétique du Verne : Vénerie, fauconnerie, chasses

Sotheby’s is pleased to announce the sale of a selection of books from the hunting and hawking library of the Counts du Verne. The collection was assembled over more than a century and a half by three generations of collectors: Joseph du Verne, then his son Pierre du Verne, who passed on his passion to his daughter Nicole du Verne-Bernis.

The collection gathers almost all of the most important French hunting books printed between 1500 and the present day, as well as some remarkable manuscripts.

This first sale is composed of around 270 mainly French-language books dedicated to hunting, both with hounds and falconry. Many of the copies are from prestigious hunting collections, including Pichon, Schwerdt, Auguste Veinant, Baron de Lassus and Grandjean d’Alteville. This is one of the most attractive hunting collections ever offered for sale since the sale of the Marcel Jeanson collection at Sotheby’s in Monaco in 1987.

The Remarkable Nature of Edward Lear
An illustrated talk by Robert McCracken Peck, accompanied by a display of rare books.

Edward Lear (1812-1888) is best known and much loved for “The Owl and the Pussycat” and other nonsense poetry. But Lear was also a fine painter of birds, mammals, reptiles, and landscapes and an adventurous, world-wide traveler. During the golden age of natural history book production, Lear's parrots, macaws, toucans, owls, and other birds stand out as especially powerful and memorable. He was a genius at capturing the life-like appearance and individual personalities of his subjects. His mammal paintings, which feature everything from hedgehogs, shrews, kangaroos and bats, to Tasmanian Devils, are full of character and action. Often compared with Lewis Carroll for his nonsense verse and with Audubon for his portraits of birds, Lear's enigmatic career and private personality have made him less well known than his peers, and little understood, even by his many admirers.

Robert McCracken Peck, author of the new, profusely illustrated book The Natural History of Edward Lear (David R. Godine, fall 2016), will discuss the remarkable life and natural history paintings of this beloved children’s writer, who abruptly and mysteriously abandoned his scientific work soon after he achieved preeminence in the field. Peck is the curator of art and artifacts at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, a guest curator of a bicentennial exhibition of Edward Lear’s natural history paintings at Harvard University’s Houghton Library, and veteran of many scientific expeditions to remote regions of the Amazon rainforest and Mongolian steppes. He is the author of books on other masters of wildlife art, including Audubon and Louis Agassiz Fuertes, and has lectured widely on Lear in Great Britain and the United States. Copies of his book will be available for sale and signing by the author after the lecture.

Following the lecture, Leslie K. Overstreet, Curator of Natural-History Rare Books, will present a display of books illustrated by Edward Lear from the collections of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History.

Mr. Boswell Goes to Corsica: Charismatic Authority in the Age of Democratic Revolutions
22ND LEWIS WALPOLE LIBRARY LECTURE

David A. Bell
Sidney and Ruth Lapidus Professor, Department of History
Princeton University

Bell's lecture examines how new ways of imagining political leadership emerged during the Enlightenment, across the Atlantic world, using as a case study the way the Corsican independence leader Pasquale Paoli become an unexpected hero in Britain and its American colonies. He then speculates on how these ways of imagining political leadership helped shape the character of the great Atlantic revolutions of the century’s end.

APHA 2016 Conference: “Black Art and Printers’ Devils: The Magic, Mysticism and Wonder of Printing History“
Since 1976, the American Printing History Association has organized an annual conference on a selected theme in printing history. In the early years the annual conference was invariably held in New York City, but since the mid 1980s the organization has sought venues further afield. Conferences typically consist of a day or two of formal papers, presentations, and panels combined with tours of local collections, studios and other spots of interest to historians of printing. There are also plenty of opportunities for socializing and fellowship.

John F. Nash, Jr.'s 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

John F. Nash Jr.’s seminal work on game theory was recognized in 1994 when he was awarded the Sveriges Risbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel for his “pioneering analysis of equilibria in the theory of non-cooperative games”—seminal work that he had largely completed as a graduate student in Princeton’s Department of Mathematics. Nash shared the Prize with John C. Harsanyi and Reinhard Selton, economists who developed significant applications of the Nash equilibrium and other of Nash’s concepts of game theory. Receiving the Nobel Prize was a transformative event for Nash, who wrote frankly of his struggles with mental illness in his Nobel biography and whose life inspired the Academy Award-winning film A Beautiful Mind (2001). During an interview at a 2004 meeting of Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences, Nash acknowledged that the Nobel Prize “had a tremendous impact on my life, more than on the life of most Prize winners because I was in an unusual situation. I was unemployed at the time. … And so I was in a position to be very much influenced by the recognition of my earlier work. … I had become widely known, but in a sense it wasn't officially recognized. I was quoted very frequently in the literature of economics and mathematics, but it's quite different to get official recognition.”

INK LDN
INK LDN is a unique new international antiquarian book and art fair with an emphasis on luxury and quality.

2 Temple Place is a magnificently eccentric fin de siecle residence, built by newspaper and property magnate William Waldorf Astor to house his family and his art and book collection. It might almost have been designed with INK LDN in mind. Its opulent interior is a bibliophile’s delight, boasting a treasure trove of literary references.
These include a frieze of 80 Shakespearean characters, a main staircase featuring mahogany carvings of The Three Musketeers (and D’Artagnan), statues of Rip Van Winkle and Hester Prynne and a series of silver gilt panels depicting the women of Malory’s Morte d’Arthur.
The building also has links to a more contemporary cultural phenomenon – 2 Temple Place is where the marriage of Lady Rose and Atticus Aldrige was filmed for Downton Abbey.

It would be hard to find a more fitting home for this exciting and prestigious book fair.
