Franklin's second overland expedition in 1825-27 formed part of a double-pronged assault on the western approaches to the Arctic, undertaken in conjunction with Beechey's voyage to Bering's Strait. The expedition proceeded across North-western Canada to Fort Franklin on Great Slave Lake, and down the Mackenzie to its mouth. There a party under Richardson and Kendall split to explore eastward along the coast to the mouth of the Coppermine, while Franklin and Back headed westward along the coast toward Kotzebue Sound where they were to join up with Beechey. Franklin, however, turned back at Return Reef at about 149? west, while one of Beechey's vessels managed to penetrate only as far as Point Barrow, several hundred miles away. The narrative includes descriptions of the country traversed and of encounters with Esquimaux, notes on weather conditions, the Dogrib Indians, the burning coal cliffs beyond Cape Bathurst, &c.

      Wirceburgi [Würzburg], Typographice et lithographice sumtibus propriis; Lipsiae [Leipzig], Prostat apud Fridericum Fleischer, 1823 - Crown quarto. Pp. xv, v, 218. Plus 10 plates, of which 4 are folding.

With neat, contemporary inscription on first flyleaf. A very good, wide-margined copy, well preserved in the original state. ~ First edition. A good copy of the first Sanskrit grammar to appear in Germany, and a unique example of printing art. Lacking an access to any Sanskrit types, Frank could not print the book in letterpress and had to use lithography, a technique usually reserved for the printing of illustrations. Typographically it is unique that the entire text, both the Latin and the Sanskrit, were transferred to stone by hand. Very scarce. Unsophisticated copies in the original binding are practically unavailable.

        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

      H.C. Carey & I. Lea, Philadelphia 1823 - 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. (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.

        Documents and letters concerning Richard, a slave belonging to John McLean (<I>?I hope he has been a dutiful Servant & may continue to serve you ? you mentioned it was probable that you might wish to return to Ohio & in that event, you did not wish to own Slaves??</I>) Later Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, McLean is especially remembered for his eloquent dissent in the Dred Scott case, arguing that Dred Scott was a U.S. citizen and that, even though born a slave, he was living in a free state where slavery was illegal

      On November 11, 1823, four weeks before he became Postmaster General in the cabinet of President James Monroe, Commissioner of the U.S. General Land Office John McLean hired a slave named Richard from Washington Bowie (1776-1826), a wealthy Georgetown merchant. Bowie later sold Richard to William S. Nicholls who sold him to McKean in 1828.

        Elia: Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature in the London Magazine

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1823 First edition, first issue, published without the half-title, with the publisher&#39;s single-line Fleet Street address to the tile page, lacking publisher&#39;s terminal advertisements. Finely bound in full navy morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, decorative gilt stamping to the spine bands and compartments, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, elaborate gilt turn-ins, maroon coated endpapers. Very good or better, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, a hint of toning to the spine, front hinge tender with some wear and rubbing to outer hinge, otherwise sturdy spine, bright and fresh pages. A clean copy of the scarce first issue in a lovely morocco binding. Elia is a collection of Lamb&#39;s popular essays, each of which was originally published in London Magazine. Specifically, it includes "The South-Sea House," "Christ&#39;s Hospital Five and Thirty Years Ago," "Dream-Children; A Reverie," and "Modern Gallantry," among others. Lamb, a long-time clerk for the British East India Company, began writing essays under the pseudonym "Elia," which he derived from a former colleague&#39;s surname. Lamb wrote in a colloquial and conversational style that made his essays beloved by his Edwardian and Victorian readers. Additionally, Lamb included many of his friends and family in his writing, loosely disguised by initials and pseudonyms. Mary Lamb, Charles&#39; sister and co-author of the popular Tales from Shakespeare (1807), appears as "Cousin Bridget." This first collection of Lamb&#39;s essays was complemented with a second volume in 1833 entitled The Last Essays of Elia: Being a Sequel to Essays Published under that Name. Interestingly, while the American edition of the first collection, published by Carey, Lea, and Carey in Philadelphia, was preceded by this first British edition by five years, the American issue of the second collection preceded its British counterpart; less restricted by copyright laws in the United States, the American publishers were able to issue both Elia volumes simultaneously in 1828.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, Being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies.

      Philadelphia: H. C. Carey and I. Lea, 1823. - Folio, (17 7/8 x 12 5/8 inches). Publisher's Advertisement (several small repairs; some browning and staining). 52 double-page engraved maps, with original hand-color in full; 3 hand-colored tables, 2 charts (slightly toned). Modern quarter tan calf, marbled boards. Second edition, first published in 1822. With 5 additional copies of the "Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of America" tipped in at the front, from varying editions: Carey & Lea 1827 (3rd edition); Carey & Lea 1822 (1st edition); Lavoisne 1821 (3rd edition); Lavoisne 1820 (2nd edition); and Lavoisne 1820 (1st edition). This edition differs from the first in its three updated/revised maps: Louisiana, North Carolina, and Maine. The map of Arkansas Territory here is the celebrated "Map of Arkansa and other Territories of the United States" by Major Stephen Harriman Long, the result of his June-August 1820 expedition to explore the sources of the Platte River and the earlier 1819 expedition. Wheat extensively discusses and praises the Long map, including the one that appeared in the 1822 and 1823 editions of Carey & Lea's atlas Wheat 348. "Carey and Lea's Atlas of 1822 carried a 'North America' on which, along with Pike's vagaries, is displayed Long's discovery of the true course of the Canadian, while Missouri Territory is carried west of the Rockies. The most interesting map in this Atlas, however, is headed 'Geographical, Statistical and Historical Map of Arkansas Territory,' which is in reality Long's map, covering the Missouri Basin north to Mandan villages and west to the Rockies. 'Highest Peak,' James Peak and Spanish Peaks appear, as on [Stephen H.] Long's manuscript map, and his expedition's routes are set forth. Just south of the Republican Fork appears the significant legend, 'The Great Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but road from place to place in quest of game.' In fact, in large part this map is Long's map, and is so stated in its title" (Wheat II, p.81). Phillips Atlases 1373a. Sabin 15055. Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 348, 352.

        A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, Being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies.

      Philadelphia: H. C. Carey and I. Lea, 1823. - Folio, (17 7/8 x 12 5/8 inches). Publisher's Advertisement (a few marginal stains). 46 double-page engraved maps with original hand-color in full; 5 tables and charts, 4 with original hand-color (occasional offsetting, one or two pale stains). Original publisher's drab paper boards with later quarter black calf, gilt-ruled (a few pale stains). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of Thomas Gilpin (dated 1824) to front pastedown and his name and location (Philadelphia) stamped on front board. Second edition, first published the previous year. This edition differs from the first in its three updated/revised maps: Louisiana, North Carolina, and Maine. The map of Arkansas Territory here is the celebrated "Map of Arkansa and other Territories of the United States" by Major Stephen Harriman Long, the result of his June-August 1820 expedition to explore the sources of the Platte River and the earlier 1819 expedition. Wheat extensively discusses and praises the Long map, including the one that appeared in the 1822 and 1823 editions of Carey & Lea's atlas Wheat 348. "Carey and Lea's Atlas of 1822 carried a 'North America' on which, along with Pike's vagaries, is displayed Long's discovery of the true course of the Canadian, while Missouri Territory is carried west of the Rockies. The most interesting map in this Atlas, however, is headed 'Geographical, Statistical and Historical Map of Arkansas Territory,' which is in reality Long's map, covering the Missouri Basin north to Mandan villages and west to the Rockies. 'Highest Peak,' James Peak and Spanish Peaks appear, as on [Stephen H.] Long's manuscript map, and his expedition's routes are set forth. Just south of the Republican Fork appears the significant legend, 'The Great Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but road from place to place in quest of game.' In fact, in large part this map is Long's map, and is so stated in its title" (Wheat II, p.81). Phillips Atlases 1373a. Sabin 15055. Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 348, 352. "Thomas Gilpin (1776-1853), the son of the elder Thomas Gilpin, was born in Philadelphia on September 10, 1776. He and his brother Joshua (1765-1841) established Delaware's first paper mill near Wilmington in 1787. Although Thomas maintained his residence in Philadelphia, he summered near the mill. Joshua resided in Delaware at Kentmere. In 1817, Thomas invented and patented the first continuous papermaking machine in the U.S., based on information secured by his brother in England. While the brothers were successful in their business endeavors, they suffered from a shortage of capital and losses in other investments. As a result, they sold the mill in 1837" (Winterthur Library online).

        Primrose and foal

      Published by Rudolph Ackermann and Rodwell & Martin and printed by Charles Hullmandell, London 1823 - Lithograph. State iii/iii. In good condition with the exception of some skillfully rendered repairs in the margins. A striking print of the Duke of Grafton's horse Primrose, by the celebrated animal painter James Ward. This is a marvelous print of the Duke of Grafton's horse Primrose with her foal, from a series of 14 throughbred horses executed by Ward. James Ward was one of the most noted artists of his day, his individual style and superior skill distinguished him from his contemporaries, and his outstanding work influenced the development of British art. Considered to be one of the most important animal painters of his generation, Ward also produced portraits, landscapes, genre and history paintings. He began his career as an engraver, studying under his brother William, who later went on to engrave many of his paintings. The images produced from the pairing of William and James Ward epitomize the best of English art; their fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination combine to create enduring pictures that speak of the taste and beauty of the age. The work of James Ward is worthy of history's praise; it influenced the art of Delacroix and Géricault, and changed the face of British painting. C.R. Grundy James Ward p.57; Siltzer p.285; Mellon British Sporting and Animal prints p.197.

The large and fine library formed by Paignon-Dijonval (1708-92), was inherited by his grandson, Morel-Vindé, who made important additions to it. Morel-Vindé (1759-1842), the author of the Déclaration des Droits de l&#39;Homme et du Citoyen (1790), was active as an agronomist.

The most expensive item of the sale was lot 71, a 15th-century Breviary from the La Vallière sale with 41 miniatures, some in grisaille (1600 francs to Crozet).

        Album of photographs.

      Aden, Cairo and other places, c. 1870s-80s.. Large landscape album (275 x 375 mm). 125 black and white photographs. Bound in full burgundy morocco with title stamped in gilt lettering on the front cover, album sheets edged with gilt, gilt roll-toothed border along pastedowns.. A magnificent album of photographs providing an extensive panorama from Aden to on the southern tip of Yemen to Cairo. It includes views of the Suez Canal and Port Said, Somalis in traditional dress, details of architecture and lattice work, landmarks and street scenes, historical monuments and works of art. Three-quarters of the photographs are signed by three highly respected photographers of the period: the Zangaki Brothers (active 1870s-90s), Pascal Sebah (1823-86), and Luigi Fiorillo (active 1870-75). The whole is a representative and fine example of a high-quality album aimed at the tourist market. - Adelphoi Zangaki, the brothers Constantine and George Zangakis, were Greek photographers specializing in historical images for the tourist trade, who worked occasionally with the Port Said photographer, Hippolyte Arnoux. - Sebah, a leading Constantinople photographer, was renowned for his well-judged compositions and for the excellent print quality achieved by his technician A. Laroche. He carved a particular niche for himself through collaboration with the portrait painter Osman Hamdi Bey (1842-1910) who posed models in elaborate costumes for Sebah and then used the photographs as the basis for his oil paintings. A commission from the Ottoman court for Osman Hamdi Bey to direct the Ottoman exhibition in Vienna in 1873 yielded an album by Sebah, "Les Costumes Populaires de la Turquie", which earned him a gold medal from the Viennese, and another from the Sultan Abdulaziz. That year, he opened a branch in Egypt. A Catholic, he was buried in the Latin cememtery in Ferikoy, where his son was also interred. The firm founded by Sebah in 1857 continued until 1952, under his brother Cosimi and his son Jean, later in partnership with Pilicarpe Joaillier and then with Hagop Iskender and Leo Perpignani; it finished as Foto Sabah under Ismail Insel, partner to Iskender's son Bedros. - Fiorillo was active in the 1870s-80s and is known particularly for his haunting record of the British bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 during the Anglo-Egyptian war, views of the city before and after the attack. He was also occupied with the tourist trade.

        Narrative of a Voyage to India ; of a Shipwreck on board the Lady Castlereagh; and a Description of New South Wales

      London: Sir Richard Phillips, 1823. Octavo; title-page lightly foxed, else a very good uncut copy in neat old binder&#39;s cloth, joints repaired. The only edition of this description of a visit to New South Wales in 1818 and one of surprisingly few accounts of a voyage on a convict transport. Cramp explains that the &#39;scarcity of employment in England determined me again to try my fortune abroad&#39;. He found a place on the convict transport Tottenham, which struck a reef shortly after leaving Woolwich, and then transferred to the Lady Castlereagh, which at 842 tons was the largest convict ship of its time. Although the descriptions of the two Australian colonies are relatively brief, they are well written and give a good idea of Sydney, Newcastle and Hobart as they appeared to a visitor in the latter years of Macquarie&#39;s governorship. Cramp returned by way of India, since Macquarie had chartered the Lady Castlereagh to transport troops there, but he was again unlucky: he was shipwrecked off India. He eventually reached England in 1821. Cramp&#39;s text is followed by Forbin&#39;s Recollections of Sicily with an engraved view of Taormina; the two were published together in the series Modern Voyages and Travels. This is H.L. White&#39;s copy from the library at Belltrees.

        Godwin&#39;s Emigrant&#39;s Guide to Van Diemen&#39;s Land , more properly called Tasmania, containing a Description of its Climate, Soil and Productions; a Form of Application for Free Grants of Land... a list of the most necessary Articles to take out, and other information Useful to Emigrants

      London: Sherwood, Jones, 1823. Octavo, with a folding handcoloured map and a folding view; original boards, printed paper label; some embrowning and offsetting from the map, but a very good uncut copy in original binding, preserved in a quarter calf box. First edition: now rare. Godwin&#39;s work on Van Diemen&#39;s Land is one of the earliest books to promote free emigration to an Australian colony. Earlier publications were essentially historical or narrative accounts, and this is arguably the earliest Australian emigrant&#39;s guide. Tasmania was undergoing a period of massive expansion in the 1820s: the population rose from 5468 to 24,279 and included thousands of free immigrants, for many of whom Godwin&#39;s Guide would have been standard reading. It attempts to cover all areas of interest to the immigrant - as well as articles describing the island there are specialist chapters on sheep, land clearing, the cost of labour, cattle prices, commerce and much detail on the ordinary mechanics of living, including a short article on "a weekly Gazette published at Hobart Town by Mr A. Bent". The lithograph frontispiece ("South West View of Hobart Town, Van Diemen&#39;s Land") is by A. Aglio, after G.W. Evans&#39;s view of the same name. Aglio, adopting contemporary artistic practice, has embellished Evans&#39;s original work with the addition of cows and kangaroos in the foreground. Not all copies were issued with the folding map in the superior handcoloured form, as here.
