        THE NATURAL AND ABORIGINAL HISTORY OF TENNESSEE, UP TO THE FIRST SETTLEMENTS THEREIN BY THE WHITE PEOPLE, IN THE YEAR 1768

      Nashville: Printed by George Wilson, 1823. Contemporary calf, spine gilt, leather labels. Corners worn, joints cracked. Modern bookplate on each pastedown. Contemporary ownership inscription on front flyleaf and titlepage. Light foxing and toning. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. First edition of Haywood's substantial account of the natural and aboriginal history of Tennessee. A judge in Davidson County and one of the pioneering historians of Tennessee, Haywood wrote the companion volume entitled THE CIVIL AND POLITICAL HISTORY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, FROM ITS EARLIEST SETTLEMENT UP TO THE YEAR 1796, also published in 1823. In addition to providing much information about the Indians of Tennessee, the author attempts to demonstrate the relationship of Native Americans to the Caucasian race. He also includes details regarding Mexicans, Hindus, Persians, Peruvians, Cherokees, Chickasaws, and Natchez Indians. "In this book, now exceedingly rare and highly prized, the author has brought together a very large number of curious facts, relating to the origin and character of the natives of his State, prior to the settlement by the whites. He does not favor the hypothesis of great antiquity in the Indian nations of America, and believes in their common origin with the Caucasian race. He describes with great minuteness and care the relics of the race which once inhabited the territory, its utensils, skeletons, crania, and fortifications, most of which he appears to have personally inspected" - Field. This is one of the most difficult Tennessee books to acquire. SABIN 31085. FIELD 670. HOWES H359, "b." CHURCH 1325. STREETER 1659. SIEBERT SALE 371. ALLEN IMPRINTS 562. AII (TENNESSEE) 121.

        Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes, &c. &c. From Drawings by Messrs. Howitt, Atkinson, Clark, Manskirch, &c. With a Supplement of New South Wales. Containing One Hundred and Ten Plates

      London: Edward Orme, circa, 1823. Plates a little thumbed, binding worn.. Quarto, pp. with 110 hand coloured aquatints (including the New South Wales plates), a good copy in ornate contemporary gilt decorated deep green morocco with all edges gilt. An attractive copy of one of the outstanding aquatint books of the early nineteenth century containing a remarkable suite of ten plates depicting Aboriginal life and customs with detailed letterpress descriptions. These are some of the most famous, and widely recognised, early colonial images of the Aboriginal tribes of the Sydney basin, and the identity of the artist has been long contested.Foreign Field Sports contains 100 hunting scenes from cultures across the globe, including Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas; furthermore, it includes ten plates of Aboriginal hunting and ceremonial scenes. The ten scenes are remarkable in the history of early colonial Australian art, offering good natured and unprejudiced depictions of Aboriginal life in an era when pejorative representation was the norm. The scenes include smoking out possums, a kangaroo hunt, spearing birds on the wing, fishing from canoes, a native dance, painted warriors, men in single combat and an idyllic night scene. Delicately hand-coloured and expertly printed, the ten plates 'are without question the most attractive and sympathetic of the early European depictions of the native inhabitants' (Australian Rare Books p.280).Although the plates are signed by John Heaviside Clarke, there is little doubt he is not the artist responsible for the Aboriginal plates and their accompanying text. Clarke was a commercial artist working in London, turning original sketches into finished drawings ready for the engraving process.For decades controversy has surrounded the true identity of the artist of the Aboriginal studies. In Australian Rare Books, Wantrup argues convincingly for the natural history illustrator John Lewin, and explains the stylistic differences between Lewin's known work and the plates in this volume to the conventions and discretionary modifications made by Clark and his engraver. Wantrup maintains the artist must have experienced prolonged contact with the Aboriginal peoples of the Sydney region to produce studies of such detail, and through a process of elimination leaves Lewin as the only reasonable candidate. Nonetheless, Richard Neville, in his recently published monograph on Lewin, disagrees with this attribution on the basis of stylistic and aesthetic considerations. While the identity of the artist remains contentious, these depictions of Aboriginal life stand apart from contemporary work and remarkable for their sensitivity: 'other artists working in the colony at the time portrayed the Aborigines with grotesque sarcasm...But the drawings in Field Sports demonstrate respect for their dignity and exuberantly innocent humanity' (Australian Rare Books p.281).Aside from its relevance to Australian colonial history, Foreign Field Sports is a testament to the quality of English colour plate book publishing during the early decades of the nineteenth-century, an era that saw other magnificent books such as Ackermann's Microcosm of London. Competition between publishers produced unprecedented technical and artistic excellence, especially in the perfection of professional handcolouring techniques (of which Foreign Field Sports is a paradigm example). These volumes were expensive in their own time, often priced at several guineas a volume, and took pride of place in private book collections.This is a later issue of the book, with watermarks dated 1823.

When the following numbers were about to be put in pamphlet form, - to abridge them became desirable. I regret to have frequently omitted, that which is now seem to be necessary both to connection and fact. - In this revised copy, a few of the omissions have been added. The pamphlet as originally written would have been about sixty pages." Wraps have been trimmed resulting in slight loss of some of the hand written content in the margins. Sabin 72886. From the New York Society Library, "Benjamin Romaine was a New York Attorney and one time Grand Sachem of the Tammany Society. Tammany Hall was incorporated in 1805.

This copy is inscribed by Cailliaud on the wrapper of the first text volume "A Monsieur Beliote" and contains a tipped in letter dated 1851 from Cailliaud to Beliote mentioning his second voyage to Egypt and commenting on aspects of the work. Cailliaud's second voyage to Egypt took place between 1819 and 1822. Significantly, he was the first European to explore of the ancient city of Meroe in Nubia. He visited the oasis of Siwah and Jupiter Ammon and accompanied the military expedition of Ismail Pasha (son of Mehmet Ali) to Nubia, where he explored the ruins of the ancient city of Meroe, remarkable for its two hundred pyramids. Cailliaud was a minerologist recruited "to penetrate, in search of new emerald mines, as far as Nubia. In these unknown regions, he made many valuable observations in astronomy, archaeology, and natural history." (Men of the Time, New York, 1852). "Shortly after his return, he published Travels in the Oasis of Thebes, with never-before-seen information on the people and places of the Western Desert. His Travels to Meroe not only offered similarly pioneering information on the peoples and regions south of the Nile’s first cataract, but also constituted the first scientific survey of Sudanese monuments. In addition, he brought back a large corpus of correctly copied textual material that, along with objects in his newly acquired collection, helped the historian Jean-Francois Champollion decipher the hieroglyphic language of ancient Egypt. So esteemed were Cailliaud’s contributions to knowledge that in 1824 he was awarded the French Legion of Honor." Bednarski, Andrew and W. Harer. "The Explorations of Frederic Cailliaud."

        Rapport fait à la Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale, sur l'état actuel des carrières de marbre de France.

      Paris, De l'Imprimèrie de Madame Huzard. 1823. 8vo., (2) + 109 + (1)pp., a little light foxing at beginning and end, original paper flaw with loss of part of margin on pp.69/70 (not affecting printed surface), contemporary or slightly later black quarter calf over marbled boards, spine gilt and lettered. A very good copy. First separate edition following its printing in the Annales des Mines, vol.VIII> pp.3-96. Rare. OCLC locates copies at a total of only 4 libraries (Chicago Univ. + Columbia Univ. + US Geological Survey + Bibl. Centrale du Musée d'Histoire Naturelle). A comprehensive report on the state of the marble industry in France, the importance of various marbles for public works, including sculptures, buildings and public monuments. The government had evidently asked the Society to undertake a survey of the availability and quality of the various indigenous French marbles together with a report on foreign marble available for purchase and import. The report appears to be efficient and comprehensive. Following a commentary on legal issues, availability, access and the general operations of the marble industry, there is (pp.32-73) a brilliantly specific tabulated catalogue of French marble, department by department. Each is identified by its name, location, its colour and identifying character, and particular usefulness (its beauty, ability to be highly polished, use exterior or interior, for room furnishing, face of buildings, sculpture, etc. etc.). The report concludes with a commentary on the individual quarries and the marble cutters and workers who were at the start of the supply chain.

        Manuscript diary, in Härter's hand, entitled 'Meine Pastoral Erfahrungen' ['My Pastoral Experiences'], apparently unpublished

      1823 - Single notebook; 21x18cm; pp. 14 filled in. Spiritual diary in the hand of Franz Härter 1797–1874, the noted Lutheran pastor and theologian. Titled to the front endpaper 'Meine Pastoral Erfahrungen', and with a two-page 'Vorwort'/'foreword' signed and dated 1 Dezember/December 1823. The text is arranged chronologically and runs from März/March 1823 to 1829 -- the period from Härtner's ordination to the beginning of his pastorate in Strasboug. 14 pages of a longer notebook are used; the remainder is blank. Stationer's label to inside rear cover (J.G. Pfähler). We have been unable to located any printed work that matches the text here, so this may have been an unfinished project, or perhaps Härter's notes for a work that was subsequently published. Very good condition: quarter vellum binding good, somewhat chipped, with a very faded note to the spine ('F. Haeter, 1823'); internally very good, noting only some very slight spotting and a dampstain, not affecting the text, to the lower gutter. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Vorlagen für Landschaft-Zeichner. 1. Heft [all published]).

      [Munich, 1823]. - Folio (256 x 319 mm). Lithographed throughout. 20 crayon litho plates by Wagenbauer with his initials at foot (numbered 1-20). Contemp. green marbled boards; spine with ink lettered paper label. Proof plates of Wagenbauer's scarce last landscape drawing book, showing tree studies, individual trees in a landscape setting, and culminating in landscape views with cottages or ruins, shepherds and animals. All the plates here are printed on the verso of two different Rehberg lithos after Raphael (published Munich 1824). A title-page was never issued; the title was printed on the wrappers only. - Wagenbauer (1775-1829) was court painter to Maximilian of Bavaria who liked to give his paintings as presents. From 1815 Wagenbauer was director of the Munich picture gallery. He was also one of the earliest artists to experiment with lithography: he issued four drawing books (1805, 1816, 1817 and 1823); two infuriatingly with identical titles but containing different lithos (cf. Winkler). - Some light spotting, but fine. Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie, 897, 60/61 (1-20). COPAC does not have any Wagenbauer drawing books. KVK only locates the Frankfurt copy in Germany. Not in OCLC (locates only 4 copies of the 1810 drawing book: Getty, NYPL, Harvard, and Heidelberg [Germany]). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Hawking

      London: Published by T. McLean, 1823. Coloured aquatint. Dated 1820 but published in 1823. In excellent condition with the exception of some foxing in the margins. Image size: 8 x 12 inches. A pretty aquatint depicting a group of hunters hawking, from Henry Alken's celebrated book "The National Sports of Great Britain". This charming print by Henry Alken comes from a work entitled "The National Sports of Great Britain", comprised of coloured aquatints of sporting scenes. Published in 1824 by Thomas McLean, the images vary in subject from Bull baiting to Otter hunting. This charming print is the first plate in a series of shooting prints. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s.... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary."

        A Flora of North America, illustrated by coloured figures drawn from nature

      Philadelphia: Vol. I: M. Carey & Sons; Vol. II & III: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1823. 3 volumes, quarto. (10 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches). 106 uncoloured engraved plates (1 folding), from drawings by the author, by Cornelius Tiebout (29), G.B. Ellis (32), F. Kearney (23), J. Boyd (7), J. Drayton (6), C. Goodman (6), Jacob J. Plocher (2), and J.L. Frederick (1). (Plate 63 in vol. II bound as two plates, small rust hole in plate 80 in vol.III, half-titles lacking). Contemporary red morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into unequal compartments by two pairs of fillets, lettered in the second and numbered in the fourth compartments, the others elaborately decorated in gilt (scuffed, hinges weak or splitting) Provenance: Abraham Bloodgood (Flushing, N.Y., book-labels); Daniel Bartlett Beard (author, conservationist and first superintendant of the Florida Everglades national Park, armorial bookplates) Very rare uncoloured issue of an important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "Plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple-engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare 'To Subscribers' leaf in Volume II. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's Flora.. . is also one of the most important early colour plate books entirely produced in the United States. "The plates were made by [among others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790's to perfect his technique" (Reese). This uncoloured issue is particularly interesting as Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in colour" - none of the plates in the present volume show any signs of colour and are therefore a variant issue of those used in the coloured version, and not merely plates that were not hand-coloured in this country. These may constitute early experimental issues of the plates - produced before the combination of colour-printing and hand-colouring was arrived at. The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnaean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range. Barton, the nephew of Benjamin Smith Barton, was appointed a naval surgeon in 1809 and remained on the Navy's list throughout his life (he was buried with full military honours in Philadelphia in 1856). "In 1815 Barton was chosen professor of botany at the University of Pennsylvania, charming many with his light-hearted herborizing trips along the Schuykill and his lectures which were, contrary to bookish times, demonstrated in his well-stocked conservatory" (DAB). His botanical publications, which appeared over a relatively short span of nine years, began with his Flora Philadelphicae prodromus (1815) and culminated with the present work (1820-24) and his Vegetable materia medica of the United States (1817-19).

        To His Most Excellent Majesty King George the Fourth This Monument of Art Is, By Permission, Most Respectfully Dedicated By His Majesty's Dutiful, Obedient Servant & Subject John Whittaker

      London: John Whittaker, 1823. Hand-coloured aquatint and gold printed engraving on vellum. A masterful engraving commemorating the coronation of King George the Fourth "The Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty King George the Fourth" was a sumptuously produced series of engravings by James and Francis Stephanoff under the supervision of John Whittaker portraying the principal participants in that coronation. The coronation itself was the most expensive ever financed by the British people. The Prince of Wales was actively involved in every aspect of the ceremony, including the costumes which derived from Elizabethan and Jacobean times. Of particular interest in this plate is St. Edward's crown held on a cushion in the gloved hands of the Dean of Westminster, John Ireland. The crown, made of gold and silver, is composed of four half arches that join and are surmounted by a cross. The whole was adorned with 1,213 diamonds, which were hired for the coronation but which were returned in 1823 when Parliament refused to buy them. St. Edward's crown is now adorned, of course, with the Crown Jewels, which give it quite a different character. The Coronation signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, in contrast to previous kings and queens, particularly the Hanoverians. With his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, and the Royal Art Collection, as well as his creation of Brighton Pavilion and the National Portrait Gallery, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker's "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff, and engraved (using aquatint and mezzotint) by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with rich, gold embellishment. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a beautiful insignia comprised of St. Edward's Crown, various other Regalia, including the three Swords of State, the three ostrich feathers, heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales, and ribbons with the motto of the Prince of Wales: Ich Dien (I Serve) and the motto of the King of Great Britain: Dieu et Mon Droit, all exquisitely tooled.

        His Royal Highness The Prince Augustus-Frederick, Duke of Sussex, Earl of Inverness, Baron of Arklow, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Doctor of the Civil Law, Colonel of the Hon. Artillery Company, President of the Society For the Encouragement of ARTS, &c. And Grand Master of the FREE & ACCEPTED MASONS, IN HIS ROBERS OF ESTATE, His Train borne by Major-General OGG

      (London: John Whittaker, 1823. Hand-coloured aquatint with gold embellishments and gold printed engraving on vellum. Some marginal soiling and scattered foxing. Mild creasing typical of vellum. An exquisite portrait of Prince Augustus Frederick attending the coronation of his brother, George the Fourth Augustus Frederick (1773-1843), Duke of Sussex, was the sixth son of George III, and the most popular member of the Royal Family with the British public. Some of his cultural enthusiasms are indicated in Whittaker's gold printed and monumental title: President of the Society of Arts, Grand Master of the Masons and Doctor of Civil Law. He was later President of the Royal Society (1830-38). He lived at Kensington Palace and amassed a great library of 50,000 volumes. In the coronation procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, he was cheered, a response not accorded all the royal brothers by any means. Prince Augustus Frederick married Lady Augusta Murray in 1793, without parental consent, and the marriage was annulled in 1794, though he continued to live with her until 1801. They had two children. In 1831, he married Lady Cecilia Letitia Buggin, again without Royal or Parliamentary consent. The Duke of Sussex was popular with the public in part because of his opposition to slavery and the Corn Laws, his support of Catholic Emancipation and Parliamentary reform, though these views put him in opposition to several of his brothers, including the two that became King, George and William. He was Victoria's favorite uncle and gave her away at her wedding. This plate comes from "Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty, King George the Fourth". A sumptuous volume produced by Westminster bookbinder and printer, John Whittaker, to commemorate George's coronation. Most of the 40 hand-colored and gold printed plates portray the prime participants in the splendid costumes selected by George for the occasion. The Coronation was the most expensive to date, and it signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, with his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, his creation of Brighton Pavilion, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker's "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 folio sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff and engraved by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with gold embellishments. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a very handsome insignia that combines the three feathers, symbol of the Prince of Wales and the Regalia of the King, including St. Edward's crown, the three swords of state, mottoes and badges of the Royal Orders, beautifully tooled.

        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. Folio. (17 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches). Mounted on guards throughout, letterpress title (copyright notice on verso), 1p. Advertisement (verso blank), 1p. Contents (verso blank), 46 double-page hand-coloured engraved maps of the United States, all but one with borders of letterpress descriptive text, 1 uncoloured double-page engraved view showing the comparative heights of mountains throughout the world, 1 hand-coloured double-page engraved table showing the comparative lengths of the principal rivers worldwide, 5 letterpress tables (4 double-page [3 of these hand-coloured]), 18pp. of letterpress text. Expertly bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by gilt roll tools, red morocco label in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. One of the most important early atlases printed in the United States: a handsome atlas of the Americas, with individual colour 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. Fielding Lucas, the major Baltimore printer, was the principal engraver and substantial historical background text accompanies each map. 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 included a smaller map with similar detail (titled "Country drained by the Mississippi Western Section"). Carey and 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 and Lea's atlas was first issued in 1822; this is the 1823 second issue, substantially the same as the first but with a new title and revised states of several maps and text leaves (generally minor revisions, including additional shading to maps and improved resetting of several text leaves, though this copy with first state settings of the Maryland and Virginia text leaves). Howes C133 ("aa"); Phillips 1373a; Sabin 15055; Wheat, Transmississippi West 348 and 352.

        Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Porto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

      Philadelphia: 1823 - Fine original hand colored map of the Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, from the first edition of Carey and Lea's 'A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies . to the Year 1822', the best atlas of nineteenth century America. With the English, Danish and Spanish possessions indicated by color; with a very dramatic delineation of the mountains and coast line of 'Porto Rico'. A very vibrant, strong impression. With text below map and at both sides, pertaining to topography, climate, lands, towns, roads and canals, education, government and history. This map, according to History Detectives (Season 6, Episode 4: Lincoln Forgery) was evidently part of an Abraham Lincoln memorabilia scam in which a forger named Harry Sickles worked with Eugene Field II to pass off items in Field's collection as Lincoln items. Sickles and Field managed to convince William P. Brown, the still living coachman of Abraham Lincoln, that they wanted his signature on the verso of their items. Brown's signature, and the notary's signature are genuine; the text referring to the map being given by Mrs. Lincoln to Brown in 1866 was added by the forger. This is the handwritten note on the verso: "This is from the collection of old books, papers, maps, etc presented to her coachman, Wm. P Brown, by Mrs. Lincoln in 1866. (Signed) Wm P Brown. The signatures are genuine. (Signed) Frank E. Thatcher". There is a blue notary stamp, (Muskegon County, Mich. 1933) and a circular blind stamp. Howe's C133. Image size: 20 3/4 x 16 1/2" on paper 22 1/4 x 17 1/2". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A New American Atlas containing Maps of the Several States of the North American Union, projected and drawn on a uniform scale from documents found in public offices of the United States and State Governments, and other original and authentic information by Henry S. Tanner

      Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1823. Folio. (23 7/8 x 16 5/8 inches). Letterpress half-title, 1p. index and 18pp. text. Engraved title with vignette of the "First Landing of Columbus in the New World", 18 fine hand-coloured engraved maps (16 double-page, 2 folding). Expertly bound to style in half-calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine gilt and divided into seven compartments by fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the first collected edition of "the most distinguished atlas published in the United States during the engraving period" (Ristow). Tanner's New American Atlas contained the most accomplished series of maps of America that had yet appeared in an atlas. Of the greatest importance were the maps of American states. These maps were drawn up using a careful combination of original surveys and the best existing published sources. The evident high cost of production meant that the publishers took the decision to issue the maps in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823. A second revised edition appeared in 1825. The maps, all of which are carefully hand-coloured, include a double-page world map, 4 double-page maps of continents, a map of South America on two joined sheets (numbered 6 and 7 in the index), a map of North America on 4 joined sheets (numbered 8 -11) and 11 double-page maps of the various States. The very large map of North America is of particular beauty and note. Wheat writes: "This map was a landmark - a great cartographical achievement ... Tanner made good use of a large number of intervening map, those of interest here being Humboldt's 'New Spain,' Pike's various maps, Long's map, and Pedro Walker's 'Map of New California' ... This 1822 map of North America was the progenitor of a long line of famous maps" (Wheat, II: pp. 82-87). Contemporary reviews of the atlas were favourable: the New American Atlas "is decidedly one of the most splendid works of the kind ever executed in this country" (United States Gazette, September 1823). Never "has either America or Europe, produced a geographical description of the several States of the Union, so honorable to the Arts, and so creditable to the nation as Tanner's American Atlas." (National Advocate 25 August 1824). Perhaps the most enthusiastic report came from the scholar Jared Sparks who wrote in the April 1824 issue of the North American Review that "as an American Atlas, we believe Mr. Tanner's work to hold a rank far above any other, which has been published." Howes T29; Phillips 1376; cf. Ristow American Maps and Map Makers pp. 154 &193-198; Rumsey 2892; Sabin 94319; Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 350.

        Bound Volume of the Daily National Intelligencer for the Year 1823

      1823 - Bound Volume, Daily National Intelligencer, Washington, D.C., January 1 to December 31, 1823. Approximately 312 issues, including one 4 pp. The only issues lacking are December 2 and December 3 (the days pertaining to the Monroe Doctrine). An issue of note, May 30, 1823, reports on the First Intersectional Horse Race, which took place on May 27, 1823. Eclipse represented the North and Henry represented the South. "The third heat won also by eclipse by four lengths- and of course he took the purse of 40,000 dollars. It was a tight race, certainly, and must have afforded the highest degree of interest to those who witnessed it."Historical BackgroundThe Daily National Intelligencer was founded as the National Intelligencer and Washington Advertiser by Samuel Harrison Smith in 1800. The paper became the tri-weekly National Intelligencer in 1810 and became the Daily in 1813. In its early years, it served as the voice of the Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and J. Q. Adams administrations. Its editors, Joseph Gales, Jr., and William W. Seaton, were well known and associated with the National Intelligencer from 1813 until its demise in 1869. The Intelligencer served as the voice of the federal government until the election of Andrew Jackson, when it switched to the Whig party. The Intelligencer was primarily a political newspaper, though it did move sometimes between being "friendly" to administrations and taking a more neutral approach. Like most political newspapers in the partisan press period, the Intelligencer always relied heavily on lucrative Congressional printing contracts for its financial support. The paper was noted for its full coverage of Congress and other government information, including proclamations, notices and advertisements. Seaton and Gales employed shorthand reporters, including themselves occasionally, to take down verbatim reports of Congressional debates and speeches. Because of its depth of political coverage, the Intelligencer was one of the more popular exchange newspapers during the early part of the 19th century. Many other newspapers took their coverage of national politics and government directly from the Intelligencer.ConditionOriginal marbleized paper covers and leather spine. Spine in poor condition, separated from many of the bound issues. "Com Ins Co, Salem, Mas" written in ink on the first page of each issue. Bookplates of the Essex Institute on inside of front cover.
