Arader Galleries proudly celebrates over 40 years in the business of important, antique works on paper, paintings and rare books. Graham Arader III began his collection of rare maps, atlases and Americana while an undergraduate at Yale University, and today that passion has grown into one of the world’s largest privately held collections of natural history artwork. Our mission is one of constant d

iscovery and enlightenment for our community of friends, clients, educators, students, and colleagues; as such, works of art can give the most poignant understanding of the times from which they originate. To us, nothing is more enthralling than a map, a document, a book or a painting that literally and figuratively illustrates history, bringing the past into the present with vivid power. We encourage comparison and using us to define levels of condition, quality of color and degrees of restoration. Our galleries are located in New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco.

One of the first people to draw attention to the impact of large-scale mining and deforestation on the Ama- zon Basin was Margaret Ursula Mee (1909-1988). Her paintings of exquisite, largely unknown, specimen plants have become synonymous with preserving the Amazon rainforest and connecting her efforts to Maria Merian’s call to action centuries ago.

Featured in our current exhibition, ‘In Search of Mrs., Women and the Radical Art of Science’ this glorious and masterful gauche of the ‘West Indian Tufted Airplant’, which is an epiphytic bromeliad found in Brazil, the West Indies, and Florida (where it is threatened with extinction and considered endangered), and elsewhere was included in one of the hundred signed and specifically bound copies of Mee’s first book, Flowers of the Brazilian Forest (London: 1968; cf. item 1) as the frontispiece, and was then removed from the volume to be exhibited separately.

A watercolor on vellum of the to***co plant by Philippa Crabtree showcased in our newest exhibition ‘In Search of Mrs., Women and the Radical Art of Science’.

Philippa Crabtree was born in London in November 1764. She became a botanical artist and exhibited “Flowers from Nature” at the Royal Academy 1786-87. After 1787, Philippa Crabtree seems to have disappeared, not recorded anywhere. With back-to-back showings at the Academy, what seems to have been a career on the move; what happened to Philippa Crabtree?

SARAH STONE (BRITISH, 1760 - 1844)
American Flamingo (Caribbean Flamingo)
Watercolor on paper

Known as Miss Stone Later Mrs. Smith
Sarah Stone’s meticulous paintings provide a unique record of the discoveries by British survey ships and new colonies in the eighteenth-century. Employed at Sir Ashton Lever’s Leverian Museum, Sarah drew an import- ant scientific record of specimens and ethnographic material brought back by British expeditions to Australia, the Americas, Africa, and the Far East in the 1780s and 1790s- perhaps most significant being Captain Cook on his round-the-world voyages. She recorded many discoveries for the first time, painting birds, mammals, fish, shells, and fossils, amongst other artifacts most of which were lost or destroyed when the museum contents were dispersed in 1806.

Featured here is one of the incredibly fine watercolors within this world class collection:

The art and science of Pauline Rifer de Courcelles, known as Madame Knip, is vastly understudied. In her lifetime, she was praised by the most prestigious watercolorists of the day and patronized by the French court. Her contributions to one of the earliest publications on pigeons, Les Pigeons, utilized by scientists and collectors for centuries, have become the prime focus of her biography. This Madame is ready for reassessment using the full breadth of available sources that have, to this point, been missed or purposefully ignored.



White-naped Woodpecker

Watercolor and gouache on paper

Paper size: 17 1/4 x 12 in.

Frame size: 21 3/4 x 16 1/2 in.

Provenance: The library of Henry Rogers Broughton, 2nd Baron Fairhaven

$45,000.

The Fairhaven inventories attribute this very fine unsigned drawing to Pauline Knip. This watercolor is the male identified by the red crown; females have a yellow crown. This woodpecker (Chrysocolaptes festivus) is a woodpecker that is a widespread but scarce in the Indian Subcontinent.

Georges-Louis Leclerc first described the white-naped woodpecker, Comte de Buffon, in 1780 in his Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux from a specimen collected in Goa on the southwest coast of India. The genus name combines the Ancient Greek khrusos meaning “gold” and kolapts meaning “chiseler.” The specific epithet festivus is Latin for “festive” or “cheerful.”

The ultimate Valentines for a map collector!

The cordiform (heart shaped)projection is suggestive of an older doctrine of microcosm-macrocosm, a direct relationship between the body and the universe. Therefor this cordiform projection is suggestive of the cosmos as an analogy to the human heart and the heart as a smaller copy of the of the cosmos. The human heart was also symbol of charity and love for others and may have used by these mapmakers at a time of religious turmoil as an emblem of religious faith. There are many possible interpretations of the cordiform projection. Look again at the map and what do you see?”

CHARLES HUARD (French, 1874-1965)
Original Drawings for New York comme de je l’ai vu (New York as I saw it)
Pen and ink
c. 1905
Born in Paris in 1874, Charles Huard began his career illustrating popular journals of the time; including Le Rire, Cocorico,
Le Courrier Français, and L’Assiette au Beurre. His sketches of French personalities captured the joie de vive of Parisian life
in the nineteenth century and quickly earned him acclaim. Huard studied at the Atelier Julian around 1900 and went on to
illustrate the complete works of Honoré de Balzac in 1910. He also served the French Army in WWI from 1914-1918 in the
capacity of Official Painter of the Sixth Army of France.
Huard possessed a passion for travel and published illustrated books of his voyages. He took particular care to faithfully report
what he saw as objectively as possible without adding his personal judgements or bias. His journals, including London as I Saw
It, Berlin as I Saw It, and New York as I Saw It are fascinating historical records of rapidly developing cities captured both in
pen and ink sketches and also in Huard’s narrative voice: the voice of a ready explorer encountering the city for the first time.
Charles Huard’s framed sketches in the Arader collection originate from the complete original sketchbook for New York Com-
me Je l’ai Vu [New York as I Saw It], created circa 1905. They are one-of-a-kind views, each drawn by the artist’s hand at the
time they were observed. His travelogue, composed in French, was published to accompany the pictures.

WHITLEY, Thomas W. (fl. 1835 - 1865).
Hoboken, the Promenade.
Oil on canvas.
Signed l.l. “T Whitley”.
13 3/4” x 23 1/4” canvas, 20 1/4” x 29 3/4” framed.

PAIR OF WONDERFUL CITYSCAPES OF NEW YORK PAINTED DURING THE CITY’S AMAZING GROWTH

This evocative 19th-century landscape of the promenade in Hoboken was painted by Thomas W. Whitley, who emigrated from his native England to the United States in the early 1830s, initially to Paterson, New Jersey, and then to New York City. He rapidly attracted attention for his nuanced and lovely work, exhibiting at the National Academy from 1835 to 1863, and at the Apollo Association and the Art Union in 1841 and 1848-9. He won greatest recognition for his atmospheric landscapes, which captured brilliantly the fleeting effects of light and nature. This sparkling picture shows the waterfront in Hoboken as it appeared in the 1830s, as couples and families stroll by the tranquil water’s edge, admiring the expansive horizon, dotted with sailing vessels. The filtered light suggests early evening, and this work is a foremost example of Whitley’s talent at capturing atmospheric effects and of his fine painting style.”

Woodcut on paper with watermark of a shield with a unicorn.
Venice: 1572.
19 3/8” x 28 1/2” sheet, 31 1/2” x 40 1/2” framed.

This swirling, vibrant and extremely rare Italian woodcut represents the decisive Battle of Lepanto.
The landmark confrontation at Lepanto, fought on October 5, 1571, was waged between the Ottomans and members of the Christian Holy League. The Holy League’s forces were made up of soldiers and equipment from the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and others. In the end the Holy League soundly defeated the Ottomans’ navy, thus ending the Ottomans’ dreams of supremacy over the Mediterranean. The forces of the Ottomans and Holy League suffered heavy casualties during the Battle of Lepanto as this documentary woodcut amply demonstrates.

A Brilliant Composition of an Extinct Bird.
"It is at times a shy bird, so that one can seldom approach it, unless under cover of a tree, or when he happens accidentally to surprise it while engaged in its daily avocations. When seen in a large field newly brought into tillage, and yet covered with girdled trees, it removes from one to another, cackling out its laughter-like notes as if it found delight in leading you a wild-goose chase in pursuit of it" - (Audubon's Ornithological Biography, 1831).

James Audubon’s (Snowy Owl) is one of the most desirable images from his monumental Birds of America: one of his very few nocturnal scenes, and certainly one of the most vibrant and charming full-page illustrations of his 435-plate series.

At home in the far North, the snowy owl sits upon its hillock, surveys its bleak domain, and intones its baleful booming to the polar sky... About every fourth year flights of these big ghostly owls drift into the United States; at longer intervals invasions of thousands pour across the border. Persecuted by trophy hunters, few survive the winter and make the return trip (Audubon’s Ornithological Biography, 1831).

A Genius Composition and The Most Desirable of Audubon's Extinct Birds.

Featured in the Philadelphia Museum of Art Anthology on American Still-Lifes.

In his Ornithological Biography, Audubon states, "Our Parakeets are very rapidly diminishing in number; and in some districts, where twenty-five years ago they were plentiful, scarcely any are now to be seen.... ." Unfortunately, the vibrant birds were considered a pest by farmers and were killed in large numbers to prevent them from ruining crops. This slaughter, combined with deforestation throughout their range and the popularity of their feathers in the millinery trade, led to the decline of the Parrot. The species was rarely seen outside of Florida after 1860, and by the 1920s it was considered extinct. (Cornell Lab of Ornithology).

Spearing Fish From a Canoe (Pl. 8)

Seth Eastman, was a distinguished American artist whose work encapsulated the spirit of the 19th-century American frontier. "Spearing Fish From a Canoe" is a remarkable steel plate engraving, showcasing Eastman's exceptional talent for capturing the essence of Native American life and the natural beauty of the landscapes they inhabited.
This exquisite piece of art is a testament to Eastman's mastery of his craft. The artist's attention to detail and his deep appreciation for the intricate relationship between humanity and nature are prominently displayed in this engraving.

Paris: M. E. Jouy, De L'Académie Française, 1832.
17" x 23 3/4" sheet.

Artist's Proof in Excellent condition.

Vues des cotes de France is widely acclaimed as "a magnificent collection of views" (Deak, Vol 1, p. 291). Each print exhibits endless attention to detail, incorporating architectual landmarks, ships, weather conditions, animals and costumed figures in the midst of daily activities. Garneray makes superb use of the aquatitnt medium, which enables subtle variations in tone and reproduces the looks and feel of watercolor more successfully that any other method of engraving. This set is of even greater interest; each print is an artist's proof, retouched and in some cases completely colored, by Garneray himself.
