Last week we welcomed Ana-Maria Costa, the Library & Archive's first Synthesys funded researcher. She is with us for three weeks.

 

Ana-Maria is here as part of her PhD with the University of Lisbon, entitled 'The Natural History in Art and the Art in Natural History 1770-1810'.

 

During her stay she will be using the Botanical and Zoological artwork collections from the Library and in particular those relating to:

 

Captain James Cook's two voyages

First Fleet

William Bartram

 

 

 

 

 

 

In particular the goal of her PhD is to compare and contrast the 'cultural' skills of Portuguese artists with those of other European artists during the period 1770-1810.

 

IMG_1946a.jpg

 

 

When studying the collections, she is looking at a number of different levels:

 

Artistic - not only interested in the colours used, but form, line and composition. Also what the artist puts behind, whether the perspectives are correct and their use of light and shadow to create a 3D effect.

 

Scientific/taxonomic - has the species been identified and if so correctly.

 

 

Geographic - she is recording the geographical information of the specimen depicted in order to later plot these on a map.

 

Ana-Maria is in her third year of four and has already researched the art collections at the Libraries of the Natural History Museum and Botanical Gardens, Lisbon, National Museum, Lisbon and Botanical Gardens, Madrid.

 

By the end of her research here Ana-Maria is looking to have identified approximately 40 pieces of artwork to use for her PhD, in addition to those selected from the other institutions.

Flora Sinensis, fructus floresque Humillime Porrigens, ... &c. / R. P. Michaele Boym

Matthaeus Rictius, Vienna, 1656.

 

The Flora Sinensis is one of the rarest and earliest European works on the natural history of China. It was published in Vienna in 1656 by the Polish Jesuit missionary Father Michael Piotr Boym (1612-1659), who spent over a decade in China as a successful missionary scientist.

 

Boym first travelled to China in 1643, after the fall of the Ming dynasty and the establishment of the new Qing dynasty, to study, promote Christianity and introduce Chinese science to Europe. However his diplomatic mission to convert the court of the last Chinese ruler of the Ming dynasty to Christianity was seen as a threat to the relations with the Manchus, and in 1651, upon his return to Europe, he was placed under house arrest in Goa. Boym escaped and travelled back to Europe: to Venice, and then Lisbon. In 1656 he returned to China to continue his work, but died three years later in the province of Kuang si.

 

During his travels he corresponded and reported on the various flora, fauna and customs of the numerous countries through which he travelled. An excellent cartographer, Boym also prepared many maps of mainland China and South-East Asia. All of his efforts contributing greatly to Sinology (the study of China and Chinese topics).

 

The Flora Sinensis remains his best known publication. It contains seventeen botanical plates of cultivated fruits of south-eastern China, five zoological plates of animals (including a hippopotamus!) and a plate depicting a Chinese stele (an inscribed monument). For each of the plates Boym gives the names of the species in both Chinese and Latin. He also provides an accurate description of each plant, including their medicinal properties, in the Latin text that accompanies each plate. Originally published uncoloured, hand-coloured copies such as this one are of great rarity.

Boym's published works were influential and frequently cited by other authors who wrote about China, including Athanasius Kircher's 1667 publication titled China monumentis in which similarities in the plates can be seen. It is interesting to note the anthropomorphic (human-like) features that the animal illustrations have been given.

The NHM Library copy is bound in an old vellum binding which has warped quite significantly overtime due to its age and sensitivity to temperature and humidity. However the quality of the paper remains excellent, considering it is such an old book. That said, the numerous tiny holes scattered over the front and inside board look like they may have made a tasty lunch for an insect at some point .....

Texte par Eugène Alix, dessins d'après nature par Édouard Cuyer [Text by Eugène Alix, drawings from nature by Édouard Cuyer]
Paris: J.B. Baillière,1886.

 

Whilst taking part in a barcoding project in late 2012, I was lucky enough to come across this beautiful and detailed French book. It is in two volumes: the text, and an ‘atlas’ {volume of illustrations}. Although the primary author is listed as Eugéne Alix, the drawings in the atlas were made by Édouard Cuyer. As I was barcoding ‘my’ section – the quarto (larger than a paperback novel, smaller than an atlas of maps) zoological monographs, I had the pleasure of seeing many handsome books, and many more plates and drawings. However, despite a very plain cover, this one stood out, not just because of the especially long title, but also because of what I found inside …a model horse! But it’s definitely designed for adults rather than children: if you’re squeamish, look away now.

 

Although there are a number of technical line drawings of horse physiology in the text, it was the colour illustrations in the atlas that really stood out. There are 16 plates with movable flaps, and a pocket at the back containing a model, movable, jointed paper horse, with templates. These allow the reader to accurately move the horse’s body, head and limbs so that they occupy the positions used when a horse is cantering, galloping, walking and so on. I confess I spent longer than usual barcoding this book – I couldn’t resist having a go…

IMG_1754.JPG

 

Picture 2. Planche IX, Tronc et Cavité Thoracique – Face Latéral [Trunk and thoracic cavity – lateral side]. {Nine flaps}

IMG_1759.JPG


The plates themselves are astonishingly detailed. For example, one shows all the structures in the neck: by lifting up a series of flaps, one can navigate from the skin of the animal, to the various muscles and tendons, to the blood vessels, and finally the spinal cord – this is shown in the first picture above. In total, we counted eleven flaps on this plate alone. Even the inside of the flaps have been coloured.

 

There are eight templates for the model horse, ranging from Amble to Galop [Gallop]. These have a slit cut into the top edge, so that each may be slid up behind the horse, and the body then positioned according to the template marks. Sadly the horse is missing a hoof (the ‘green’ one!), but we have flagged this up and our paper conservator will be examining the volumes for damage and carrying out repairs in the near future. In the meantime, we have updated the catalogue record to make sure that the illustrations and plates are fully described. In addition, the book has been re-classified taking into account its fragility and interest.

 

Picture 3. Planche V,. Allures du Cheval. La planche VI et ses huit annexes n’ont pas été intercalés dans l’Atlas pour en rendre le maniement plus facile et pour permettre d’exécuter commodément les diverses allures. On les trouvera la poche cartonnage de la couverture. [Horse gaits. Plate VI and eight annexes have not been inserted in the Atlas to make handling easier and to allow various gaits to be performed conveniently. They are found in the cardboard cover pocket.]

 

Galop.jpg

 

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find out much information about the book or its creators. The plates are referenced as being “del (et pinx)” [delineated and painted] by Cuyer, although Imp. [printing imprint] was carried out by Lemercier & Cle Paris. It was published by J.B. Bailliére & Fils [J.B.Balliere and son(s)]. However, we do know that although pop-up books are usually thought of as intended for children, the earliest known books were expensive teaching tools for adults – as this one clearly is.

One of the many projects that I have undertaken over the years is to digitise a collection of images held in the Library, known as the Portrait Collection.

 

 

This collection of photographs, cuttings and other paper based images has given me years of interesting work, not to mention the countless hours of investigation on getting at least a snipping of information on people that, in some cases, have been lost to us, but were extremely important in their field, in their day.  To me, each person has been a short history lesson.

 

One image that haunts me is the death mask of Richard Parker (1767-1797). Written on the back of the image is "Death mask of Parker of the Nore". My curiosity took hold and I had to look up the history of the Nore.  The Nore is an anchorage in the Thames Estuary, where in 1797 sailors mutinied in protest against living conditions on Royal Naval vessels and demanded a pay rise. 

 

Parker_R_001.jpg

 

 

 

Richard Parker was elected “President of the Delegates of the Fleet” due to his obvious intelligence, education and empathy with the suffering of sailors.  He was one of 29 men hanged following this mutiny. Before his burial in unconsecrated gound in Sheerness, Kent, John Hunter, the eminent surgeon (and founder of the Hunterian Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons) took this cast of his face. 

 

To this day the mask is still held at the Hunterian Museum for more information.

 

The story of Parker’s body continues in that after his burial, his wife, Anne, with the help of 4 other women, exhumed the body with the intent of smuggling the remains to his former home near Exeter.  They stopped en-route at a public house near Tower Hill and crowds gathered to pay their respects.  The Duke of Portland, fearing a public “hero’s” funeral had the body stolen, but word leaked out and the workhouse where the body was hidden was held siege. 

 

 

 

At this point the Home Office succeeded in arranging a secret burial in the grounds of St. Mary Matfelon Church in Whitechapel.  Anne Parker was not privy to the whereabouts of her husband’s final resting place, but later discovered this and was successful in having his remains blessed with the official Christian Ritual.

 

Why is this image in our collection?  I have no idea!
