        Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, Performed in the Years 1819 and '20, by Order of the Hon. J.C. Calhoun, Sec'y of War: Under the Command of Major Stephen H. Long.

      Philadelphia: H.C. Carey and I. Lea, 1822-1823. - 3 volumes: 2 text volumes, 8vo., (8 2/8 x 5 2/8 inches); and atlas volume, folio (11 4/8 x 9 inches). Atlas with 2 engraved double-page maps after S.H. Long by Young & Delleker, 8 engraved plates, including one hand-colored after S. Seymour and T.R. Peale by C.G. Childs, Lawson, F. Kearney, W. Hay, Young & Delleker, and one double-page plate of geological cross sections Uniformly bound in full mottled calf antique by Trevor Lloyd. First edition. Major Stephen Harriman Long (1784-1864), considered himself to be the natural successor to Lewis and Clark. His expedition into the trans-Mississippi West was the first to be accompanied by artists, and as such the accompanying atlas is of enormous importance: including not only detailed maps, but images of Native American encampments, rituals and artifacts, as well as views of the Great Plains. During 1816 and 1817 "he crisscrossed Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Missouri, examining army garrisons and gathering general scientific data about the region. In 1817 he led a small party up the Mississippi River to the site of Minneapolis, where he dealt with the Indians and sought future sites for military posts. During the winter of 1817-1818 he traveled up the Arkansas River, choosing the site for what became Fort Smith, Arkansas. Later in 1818 Secretary of War John C. Calhoun decided to have Long organize and lead a scientific expedition up the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains. He ordered the major to Pittsburgh, where Long designed and supervised the construction of a steamboat, the 'Western Engineer', that was to carry the scientists west. On 5 May 1819 the 'Western Engineer ' began its journey down the Ohio River to St. Louis. Long had assembled an impressive group of scientists for the expedition, including William Baldwin, Titian R. Peale, Thomas Say, and Samuel Seymour. Despite their long-awaited start, trouble with the steamboat design and machinery, a lack of efficient fuel, and the muddy Missouri River water all combined to slow the boat. Frequent breakdowns hindered upriver progress so that when the scientists halted near present Omaha, Nebraska, in September 1819, they had fallen far short of earlier expectations. As a result, the War Department ended its effort to explore the western rivers by steamboat. "The following summer Long and a much-reduced party of soldiers and scientists set out to explore the central plains. Drought, lack of horses, an inadequate supply of food, and faulty maps caused the explorers much difficulty. They traveled west to the Rocky Mountains and then south to the Arkansas River. There half of the party turned east while Long led the rest south in search of the headwaters of the Red River. They hunted in vain, and having depleted their food and water, they headed east along one of the branches of the Canadian River, having failed to locate the Red. The scientists dispersed at Fort Smith as they returned east. Long's negative description of the central plains as the Great American Desert appeared on maps for the next generation. The explorers published their findings in the three-volume 'Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains . . ." (1823), compiled by Edwin James [as here]" (Roger L. Nichols for ANB). The Long Expedition was the third major American exploration into the trans-Mississippi West, following those of Lewis and Clark, and Pike, and much was expected of him: "The object of the Expedition, is to acquire as thorough and accurate knowledge as may be practicable, of a portion of our country, which is daily becoming more interesting. you will permit nothing worthy of notice, to escape your attention. ascertain some point in the 49th parallel of latitude, which separates our possessions from those of Great Britain. You will conciliate the Indians by kindness and presents, and will ascertain, as far as practicable, the number and character of the various tribes, with the extent of country claimed by each."

        Cours d'économie politique, ou exposition des principes qui déterminent la prospérité des nations. Avec des notes explicatives et critiquees par J.-B. Say. 4 Bände.

      - Paris, Aillaud, Bossange et Gravier, 1823. XV, 501 S.; 2 Bl., 485 S.; 2 Bl., 527 S.; 2 Bl., 427 S. Mit 11 'Tableaux' (2 gefaltet) und einem 'Table analytique' über das Gesamtwerk in Bd. 4. Halbleder d. Zeit mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln (Rücken leicht berieben, an Bd. 3 stärker). Storch (1766-1835) stand in Diensten Russlands u. war Mitglied der russischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Er hatte in Heidelberg u. Jena studiert, ging danach nach St. Petersburg u. wurde später Lehrer des späteren Kaisers Nikolaus u. dessen Bruder Michael in der politischen Ökonomie. Schumpeter würdigt ihn als "kritischen Smithianer": "Seine Grundlagen und sein Begriffsapparat wurden im wesentlichen von Smith übernommen, aber er wich von Smith und Say in mehreren entscheidenden Punkten ab; besonders im Hinblick auf die Einkommensanalyse. Storch hat einen gewissen Anspruch darauf, zusammen mit Lauderdale, Malthus und Sismondi zu den Vorläufern des Keynesianismus und ähnlicher Tendenzen gerechnet zu werden, die sich später durchsetzten" (Schumpeter I, 617). - Storchs Werk ist mit Band 3 abgeschlossen, in Band 4 die 'Notes pour le Cours d'économie politique' (von Say), die 'Tableaux concernant le numéraire, le change, et les poids et mesures de Russie' sowie der 'Table analytique des matières contenues dans cet ouvrage'. Es fehlt ein Band 5, der erst 1824 (in erster Ausgabe) mit dem Untertitel 'Considerations sur la nature du revenu national' erschienen ist. Die Bände 1-4 erschienen zuerst 1815. - Kress C 1155; Einaudi 5486/87. - Teils leicht stockfleckig, Titelei von Band 4 etwas stärker. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'indianiste anglais Edward Moor veut fonder une société orientale.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 4 In-4 18/03/1823 Mention manuscrite : «Reçu le 7 avril 1823». bon Edward Moor prie son correspondant de bien vouloir déposer pour lui quelques ouvrages au Dépôt légal de la Bibliothèque Royale : Star Tables de Thomas Lynn, son beau-frère ; Remarks upon "morbus oryzeus", or disease occasioned by the employment of noxious rice as food et probablement A Concise narrative of facts connected with the disease, which occurred in the district of Jessore du Dr. Robert Tytler, un ami ; et Military sketches of the Goorka War, in India, in the years 1814, 1815, 1816 par un ami anonyme. Tout ces ouvrages figurent en effet au catalogue de la BN, le dernier avec comme provenance Louis Langlès. Moor, sur le point de fonder une Société orientale à Londres, demande à Langlès s'il accepte d'en devenir membre honoraire et si il lui est possible de rejoindre la Société asiatique de Paris. Il joint à son envoi un présent à transmettre à Vivant Denon, ancien directeur du Louvre, qui l'a aidé par le passé. Il évoque enfin son célèbre ouvrage The Hindu Pantheon (1810) désormais épuisé. Écrivain-voyageur et soldat, il est surtout indologue, l'un des premiers à avoir écrit en Grande-Bretagne sur l'hindouisme comme religion. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE FABLES OF AESOP

      Newcastle: Printed by E. Walker, for T. Bewick and Son, 1823. Second Edition. This is a beautifully bound copy of the improved second edition of one of Bewick's most charming and best-loved works. More than any contemporaneous artist or printer, Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) was responsible for a renewed interest in wood engraving, and he was particularly attracted to the illustration of fables. While still an apprentice, Bewick was set to work cutting wood blocks for books of fables by Aesop, Gay, and others. By 1812, as his memoir records, he determined that if he recovered from a severe illness, he would undertake the publication of Aesop's "Fables." He mentions that he has always admired the Aesop published by Samuel Croxall (d. 1752) in 1722, and in the present edition, all but six of the fables, culled from Aesop, Phaedrus, Gay, and others, are based on fables in Croxall. At the same time, some 21 of these fables, according to Roscoe's count, are substantially rewritten, apparently by Bewick himself. As he records in his memoir, Bewick worked during his recuperation both by daylight and candlelight at cutting his illustrations, until his eyesight suffered. Some of the work was farmed out to his son, to William Harvey, and to William Temple, and experts differ on the number of cuts done by the master himself. Roscoe writes, "I estimate there are at least 39 of Bewick's headpieces, and probably more." Our second edition appeared five years after the first, and Roscoe notes that its "most important element is the reworking of a large number of the headpieces, done in an attempt--by no means unsuccessful--to cut out the 'woolliness' and lack of definition, particularly in the skies and backgrounds, which mar so many of these cuts in the first edition." The lovely binding is more classic in style than the pictorial bindings for which Kelliegram is know, and it is beautifully executed and finished.. 218 x 135 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 1/4"). xxiv, 376 pp. Second Edition. SUMPTUOUS SCARLET STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, GILT, BY KELLIEGRAM (stamp-signed on rear pastedown), covers with lovely dentelle frames, spine gilt in stippled compartments with oval centerpiece featuring either a hunting dog or a lamb, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, lavender endpapers, all edges gilt. In a (somewhat worn) fleece-lined red cloth folding box. Wood-engraved vignette on title page, 191 VIGNETTE HEADPIECES, one for each Fable and for three preliminary sections, most of these also with vignette tailpieces, all designed by Thomas Bewick. Wood-engraved receipt from Bewick dated January 1, 1824, with moonlight landscape vignette, red-printed leafy branches, and Bewick's thumbprint mark, bound in at front. Ray 53; Roscoe 46b. A breath of rubbing to extremitites, perhaps a dozen leaves lightly age-toned, other trivial imperfections, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, clean and fresh IN A SPARKLING BINDING.

        A COMPLETE HISTORICAL, CHRONOLOGICAL, AND GEOGRAPHICAL AMERICAN ATLAS, BEING A GUIDE TO THE HISTORY OF NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA, AND THE WEST INDIES: EXHIBITING AN ACCURATE ACCOUNT OF THE DISCOVERY, SETTLEMENT, AND PROGRESS, OF THEIR VARIOUS KINGDOMS, STATES, PROVINCES, &c. TOGETHER WITH THE WARS, CELEBRATED BATTLES, AND REMARKABLE EVENTS, TO THE YEAR 1822

      Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1823. Letterpress title (copyright notice on verso), 1p. advertisement (verso blank), 1p. table of contents (verso blank). Forty-six double- page handcolored engraved maps of the United States, all but one with borders of letterpress descriptive text; uncolored double-page engraved view showing the comparative heights of mountains throughout the world; handcolored double-page engraved table showing the comparative lengths of the principal rivers worldwide; five letterpress tables (four double-page [three of these handcolored]); 18pp. of letterpress text. Mounted on guards throughout. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Dampstaining along lower edge, causing chipping to initial leaves. Closed tear in bottom margin of first map, repaired with tissue. Very light offsetting from maps. Some dust soiling, light tanning and foxing. Good plus. A handsome atlas of the Americas, with individual color maps of each state in the Union, including a seminal map of the West by Stephen H. Long. At the time of publication this was the best and most detailed atlas to be produced in the United States, with substantial historical background text accompanying each map. Fielding Lucas, the major Baltimore printer, was the principal engraver. Among the most noted maps in the atlas is Major Stephen H. Long's "Map of Arkansa and other Territories of the United States." That map, which depicts the Missouri basin between Nashville in the east, the Mandan villages in the north, and the Rocky Mountains in the west, was based on the surveys conducted by Long on his expeditions of 1819 and 1820. The map published in Carey & Lea's atlas preceded the official account of that expedition by expedition botanist Edwin James, which includes a smaller map with similar detail, titled "Country drained by the Mississippi Western Section." Carey & Lea's 1823 publication of James' ACCOUNT perhaps explains the prior inclusion of this map with Long expedition information in their atlas. On this famous map is the printed legend, which would perpetuate a myth for many years to come, identifying the high plains as the "Great American Desert." Carey & Lea's atlas was first issued in 1822; this is the second issue, with revised states of three maps (Maine, North Carolina, and Louisiana), with the same printing of the remaining maps and a cancel title.

The main text is followed by a ''Relation on the Fur Trade Conducted by Russians on the Kurile, Aleutian Islands, and Northwest coast of America'', which includes an overviews of the early history of the Russian-American Company (pp. 135-164). The folding tables are: 1) Chronological record of furs taken out by private companies from 1745 to 1803 with the names of boats, boat owners, navigators, and a detailed list of furs secured by each expedition; 2) A similar record for furs taken out by Shelekhov and Golikov's company from 1786 to 1797; 3) A similar record of furs taken out by the Hudson's Bay and by the Northwest Companies from 1806 to 1820; 4) A similar record of furs taken out by the Russian-American Company from 1798 to 1822. The folding map is of the Sea of Okhotsk, the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Aleutian Islands, and the northern part of the Alaskan mainland. It was compiled by Berkh. Pp. 165-169 contain a 'note to the list of furs taken out from the Aleutian and other islands, also from the Alaskan mainland' (Lada-Mocarski, 88). ''Vitus Jonassen Bering (1681-1741) sailed from Kamchatka to Alaska in the summer of 1741, thereby commanding the first European ship to explore the northwestern coast of North America. The crews of Bering and his assistant, Aleksei Chirikov (1703-48), returned to Russia with valuable sea otter pelts. The quest for fur soon overtook the initial interest of the state in mapping and acquiring geographic knowledge of the North Pacific. Beginning in 1743, a succession of Russian promyshlenniki (frontiersmen) followed in the wake of Bering by sailing along the Aleutian Islands in search of sea otter furs. This book chronicles the many voyages that began over a century of Russian colonization in Alaska. The book includes data on the number of fur pelts taken per merchant each year and their value in rubles. The author also highlights the history of the fur trade in the ongoing exploration of the Alaskan coast, and notes that the driving force behind voyages to the region was the high pelt quality and abundance of sea otter and other fur-bearing animals. The monograph is thus a compendium of the achievements of key Russian fur traders, beginning with Emilian Basov in 1743. These merchants ultimately succeeded in establishing a quasi-governmental presence for the tsars throughout coastal Alaska, culminating with the noted merchant Grigorii Ivanovich Shelekhov, who in 1784 founded a company on Kodiak Island that later became the Russian-American Company'' (World Digital Library/ Library of Congress online). The book was first translated into English in 1970 (published as a part of: Ricks, Melvin B. The Earliest History of Alaska. Anchorage: Cook Inlet Hist. Society, 1970); first separate English edition was published in 1974 (Berkh, V. A chronological history of the discovery of the Aleutian Islands: or, The exploits of Russian merchants, with a supplement of historical data on the fur trade/ Translated by Dmitri Krenov; edited by Richard A. Pierce. Kingston, Ont.: Limestone Press, 1974). Lada-Mocarski (88), Howes B375 (describes an incomplete copy); Wickersham 5685 (incomplete pagination). ''V.N. Berkh is an author of several books on Alaska and other aspects of Russian naval discoveries resulting from early sea voyages. His works are authoritative and are the culmination of a thorough research for which he often used original source material'' (Lada-Mocarski, 87). ''In his preface to the present book he indicates what particular original material he was able to use; among these were the manuscript notes of Grigorii Shelekhov'' (Lada-Mocarski, 88). Vasily Berkh was a Russian naval officer and historian of the Russian fleet. He graduated from the Naval Cadet Corps in 1799 and took part in the first Russian circumnavigation in 1803-1805 under command of Adam von Krusenstern (Berkh served on Neva under command of Yury Lisiansky). Later he published the biography of Admiral Nelson (1807) and a Russian translation of the travel accounts of Samuel Hearne and Alexander Mackenzie (1808), compiled the map of Russian possessions in America.
