        Illustrations to Popular Songs

      London: published by Thomas M'Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1825. Oblong folio. (9 7/8 x 14 1/8 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. "address" with publisher's advertisement beneath (verso blank), otherwise engraved throughout: hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 42 hand-coloured engraved plates, each within a pale wash border, all by Alken. Expertly bound to style in red/brown half morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, contemporary red morocco title label on upper cover lettered in gilt, the flat spine divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, yellow glazed endpapers First edition, third issue: a fine copy of this evocation of Regency England. The first issue of this work was published in 1822, a second in 1823 and the present in 1825. Each print is made up of from two to six vignette scenes, each scene illustrating in a humourous fashion a single line from a popular song of the day. It is not surprising that a number of the images are of hunting, shooting and horses, but also included are scenes from domestic life of all classes, fashion, town and country life, military and naval life, etc. The publisher describes the genesis of this work in the introduction: "'Swans sing before they die --- 'twere no bad thing / 'Should some folks die before they sing.' "So whispered a friend to Mr. Alken, when they were once compelled to hear the discordant notes of a volunteer at a convivial party. 'I wish it were so,' said the Artist, 'but the words of the Song furnish a good subject for a Sketch,' and he soon presented his friend with the Illustration of 'Begone Dull Care,' this was much approved of, and became the first 'Symptom' of the 'Illustrations of Popular Songs,' a Work intended to furnish the Amateur of the Fine Arts, and of Singing, with characteristic representations of his favourite subjects, that he may have the pleasure of beholding the Poet's fancy, embodied by the glowing warmth of the Artist's fertile imagination." The artist 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" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Not in Abbey; cf. Schwerdt IV, p.4 (1822 edition with 40 plates); cf. Tooley 37 (1822 issue, noting four subsequent issues).

        Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, principal christian chief, and captain of the Huron indians

      [London]: Printed by C. Hullmandel, 1825. Hand-coloured lithograph. Rare and very desirable hand-coloured lithograph of the Huron chief, Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, drawn from an original painting by Edward Chatfield. We can find only two copies of this print, one in the Winkworth Collection at the National Archives of Canada, and another at Yale. In this image Chief Tsawanhonhi is pictured in his native dress, as he was when presented with three other Huron chiefs to King George IV of Great Britain on April 7, 1825. Tsawanhonhi holds a piece of wampum in his right hand, and the long decorative collar bears the image of a tomahawk presented to him by the late George III. He is shown in a wilderness setting, and wears a royal gift around his neck, a large gold medal given to him by George IV. The print was executed after an original painting by Edward Chatfield, a young and talented pupil of Benjamin Robert Haydon, a painter of historical scenes who supplemented his income with portrait painting. The lithographer, Charles Joseph Hullmandel was born in London in 1789 and is one of the great names in British lithography, contributing a number of important early innovations in the process of lithography. Nicolas Vincent, called 'Tsaouenhohoui' but spelled 'Tsawanhonhi' on this print, was born in 1769 in Jeune-Lorette. He was the son of Louis Vincent, called 'Sawantanan', and Louise Martin, also known as 'Thodatowan'. Tsawanhonhi was named War Chief in 1803, and went on to become Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation in 1810. During his leadership of the tribe he embarked on a long process of land claims that took him to England in 1825, where he presented the grievances of his people to King George IV. He also had to face the numerous problems caused by colonization, including logging within the borders of the lands the Hurons-Wendat needed for subsistence. Tsawanhonhi was the first Indian to speak to the members of the Assembly of Lower Canada, and at the request of colonial authorities in 1829 he drew the map known as the 'Vincent Plan', identifying a portion of the hunting lands used by his compatriots. He died on November 1, 1844 at the age of seventy-five.

        [A pair of angling prints each captioned with quotes from Horace and Virgil:] Sic omnia retro ... [and:] Piscium et summa genus hoesit ulmo ..

      London: Thomas McLean, 1825. Aquatint and engraving, coloured by hand. Sheet sizes: 9 3/8 x 11 5/8 inches and 9 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches. A handsome and humourous pair of angling prints. The first image shows a fisherman with a slack line just after losing a fish and stepping into a cow pad, with the Virgil caption roughly translated as "Thus all things change for the worse." The Horace quotation is a play on words, substituting "Perchicos" [perch] for "Persicos" [i.e. Persian], and roughly translated as "The finest perch is not for me." The second image shows an angler who has pulled a fish from the water but whose line (and fish) are caught in a tree. The famous fishing-related Horace quotation follows, "The fish was entangled in the elm tree." The Virgil quotation refers to the climbing into the river to free his line and can be read as "courage to tempt the raging stream."

        View of the landing at Rangoon of part of the Combined forces from Bengal and Madras, under the Orders of Sir Archd. Campbell, K.C. B. on the 11th of May 1824

      London: Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, 1825. Hand-coloured aquatint plate engraved by H. Pyall after Moore. In excellent condition. Image size: 10 x 14 5/8 inches. A beautiful plate from Moore's work "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore was a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein River, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines."

        Illinois and Missouri by H. S. Tanner. Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period colour. One of the earliest state maps of Illinois and Missouri, this is the revised second issue with significant changes to the mapping of the Mississippi headwaters and with an early depiction of the beginnings of the Santa Fe Trail. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This is one of the earliest maps to show Illinois and Missouri as American states. The map was added to the fifth part of the atlas in 1823. For Illinois, organized counties appear only in the southern part of the state. The northernmost part of the state is still the preserve of the Sauk and Fox. Further south, between the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, are the Military Bounty Lands. A primitive Chicago and Fort Dearborn appear at the mouth of the Chicago River. For Missouri, a state since 1820, counties appear only along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Missouri's northern and southern extremities are quite empty. This copy is an example of the improved second issue of the map. The most significant changes can be seen in Tanner's revised mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi. Tributaries off the Tete de Mort River have been removed, the locations and directions of the Sahsinakway, Fievre and Apple Rivers flow north to south (as opposed to northeast to southwest), Oak Creek has been removed, and the lead mines just north of the Tete de Mort River are now named Dubuque Lead Mines. Another significant change to the map is the addition of Lexington, Missouri; platted in 1822 and made the county seat the following year, Lexington would become an outfitting point for many travelling westward on the Santa Fe and Oregon trails. Other changes to the map from the first edition include the additions of several counties in Illinois created since the first printing. Phillips, Atlases , 3669-12; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp. 191-198; Rumsey, 2755.017; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Reveller, the Winner of the Great St. Leger, at Doncaster, 1818

      [London]: W. Sheardown and Son, 1825. Colour-printed aquatint by Thomas Sutherland, finished by hand and heightened with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. State i, later republished by J. Fuller in a book. A stunning impression in fine condition. Expert repairs to the margins and two areas of the sky. Image size: 12 1/4 x 16 1/4 inches. This magnificent portrait of Reveller, H. Peirse's celebrated racehorse who won the Great St. Leger Stakes in 1820, is considered one of Herring's most accomplished sporting portraits. Herring is an outstanding and imaginative artist who at an early age showed an aptitude for handling both riding whip and pencil. At a young age, fate took Herring to the Doncaster races where he saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. In addition to being a successful horse painter, Herring made his livelihood as a coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush. In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of portraits of the winners of the St. Leger Stakes between 1815 and 1824. Aquatinted by the renowned engraver Thomas Sutherland, the series is considered to be Herring's most accomplished work. The suite, which was comprised of a set of 10 portraits of the winner's and their Jockeys, was first published by W. Sheardown and Sons. The prints proved so popular that they were later republished and expanded by S. & J. Fuller, who published a book including Herring's prints of the St. Leger stakes. This magnificent print of Reveller with his Jockey is a rare example of the early first state of this print published by Sheardown. It is a magnificent rich impression with fresh early colour and superb highlights.

When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush. In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of portraits of the winners of the St. Leger Stakes between 1815 and 1824. Aquatinted by the renowned engraver Thomas Sutherland, the series is considered to be Herring's most accomplished work. The suite, which was comprised of a set of 10 portraits of the winner's and their Jockeys, was first published by W. Sheardown and Sons. The prints proved so popular that they were later republished and expanded by S. & J. Fuller, who published a book including Herring's prints of the St. Leger stakes. B. Smith Jerry's Jockey at the St. Leger is shown seated aloft this celebrated steed, who is being held by Mr. Croft his training groom. This magnificent print is the early first state of this aquatint, published by Sheardown. It is a magnificent rich impression with fresh early colour and superb highlights.

        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, 1825. Folio. (23 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress half-title, 1p. index and 18pp. text. Engraved title with vignette of the "First Landing of Columbus in the New World, 21 fine hand-coloured engraved map sheets (16 maps on 16 double-page sheets; 1 map on one folding sheet; and 1 map on 4 double-page sheets), some expert restoration to corners. Expertly bound to style in half brown straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt rules, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, contained within a modern red morocco-backed cloth box, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat tooling in gilt A fine copy of the improved second edition of "one the most magnificent atlases ever published in the United States" (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, which were highly detailed and brilliantly coloured. While New York and Florida each had their own dedicated page, other double-page sheets showcased multiple states at a time. As the title claims, 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 originally in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823. A first collected edition was published in 1823, and this second revised edition appeared in 1825. The maps, all of which are carefully hand-coloured, include a world map, 4 maps of continents, a map of South America on a large folding sheet made up from two joined sheets (the index calls for two separate sheets), a map of North America on 4 sheets 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 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." This second edition is notable for the significant cartographic changes made by Tanner, reflecting new boundaries, counties, towns and discoveries since the initial maps were published. For example, the map of Illinois shows significant changes to the mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi, and the map of Louisiana depicts Indian lands with vast changes from the first edition. Howes T29; Phillips 3669; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Map Makers , pp. 193-198; Rumsey 2755; Sabin 94323.

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER...EXTRA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1825

      Washington, 1825. Several hundred lines of text printed in five-column format. Minor creasing, occasional foxing. Very good. An impressive copy of a rare piece. Expertly matted, and protected with a mylar sheet. Adams' first State of the Union address. Before becoming president, Adams was the chief architect of the Monroe Doctrine, and it is with joy that he states that a treaty of "Commerce and Navigation" has been entered into with the Colombian Republic. This treaty was the first between the United States and any Latin American government. Among other interesting topics discussed are compensation rates for War of Independence veterans, the contribution of West Point to the militia, and the establishment of a uniform system of weights and measures. Adams attempts to prod Congress into establishing a national university on land bequeathed by Washington for that purpose. Of particular note is Adams' summation of the progress being made on the construction of a marble monument within the capital, under which Washington's family had granted their consent to lay the first president's remains. This broadside printing was issued by the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, the newspaper of record in Washington. It would later be printed in the newspaper.

      Glasgow, 1825. Dbd. Very clean internally. Near fine. Inscribed on the titlepage: "Messrs. Yates Brothers & Co. from the West India Association." Yates Brothers & Co. of Liverpool was a commercial firm specializing in the West Indies. The Glasgow-based West India Association was a leader in the fight against England's anti- abolition campaign. Early in his life James MacQueen (1778-1870) was manager of a sugar plantation in Grenada and travelled throughout the West Indies. By 1821 he settled in Glasgow and was editor of a newspaper there; he used his columns to defend the rights of British plantation owners in the West Indies. The DNB describes him as "mostly remembered as a staunch defender of imperial commercial interests and their extension, particularly into west Africa, not least as he was one of the first to advocate the extension of legitimate commerce as the way to overcome the slave trade in Africa." Despite the DNB's assertion, MacQueen was one of the most outspoken critics of the anti-slavery campaign in Britain in the 1820s and '30s. In these letters, addressed to the Earl of Liverpool and to Zachariah Macaulay, he defends the actions and methods of British colonizers in the West Indies, Africa, India, and Asia, at the expense of the rights of the locals and slave laborers. While well represented in institutional holdings, this work is rather scarce in the market, and we can find no copies at auction in the past thirty-five years.

        Dichter (1777-1843): Eigenh. Brief mit U. (\"La Motte Fouqué.\").

      \"Nennhausen, bei Rathenow, in der Kurmark Brandenburg\", 28. V. 1825. 4°. 1 ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. - Mit eigenh. Adresse a. S. 4. des Faltbriefes (\"An Herrn Dr. Karl Weichselbaumer, Wohlgeboren, in // München. Königreich Baiern\") mit Poststempel (\"Rathenow 31. Mai\" und \"München 6. Jun. 1825\") u. rotem Wachssigel.\"Geehrter Herr und Freund, / Zweierlei war es, was mir so lange die Feder lähmte für einen freundlichen Gruß an Sie: Einmal die Hoffnung, näheres von Ihnen über meine Ihnen eingesendeten Mittheilungen zu vernehmen, und dann, auch der Wunsch, Ihnen eine erneuete Lieferung mitsenden zu können. Die erstere Aussicht blieb von Posttag zu Posttag unerfüllt: - die letztere versagt sich mir noch durch unterschiedliche, bald innere, bald äusserliche Hemmungen. Ich habe nämlich im Sinn, für Ihr Unternehmen [wahrscheinlich \"Orpheus\", die von Karl Weichselbaumer herausgegebene \"Zeitschrift in zwanglosen Heften\"] eine Abhandlung über den Mythos des Herakles einzusenden, in Bezug auf die Idee des Ritterthumes und Frauendienstes. Erschrecken Sie, bitte ich, nicht davor, als solle das etwa eine hyperphantastische und überromantische Gestalt gewinnen. Vielmehr soll ganz einfältiglich, und auf anerkannte Grundpfeiler sich stützend, ausgesprochen werden, was jedem heiter menschlichem Gemüthe zugänglich ist, und so die Kluft zwischen Antike und Romantik weit eher durch einige frische Regenbogenlichter ahnend verknüpft, als noch weiter oder gar häßlicher auseinandergerissen werden. Welches letztere Schlimme überhaupt allwärts und von allwärtsher Gott verhüte! - // Hoffentlich kann ich Ihnen in nicht allzulanger Zeit meine ausgeführte Arbeit senden. Hoffentlich erhalte ich durch Sie bald Nachricht von dem Schicksal meiner Ihnen bereits eingesendeten Arbeiten. // Hochachtend // Der Ihrige // La Motte Fouqué.\" - // - Der Dichter, Dramatiker, Herausgeber und Kultusbeamter Karl Weichselbaumer (1791-1871) erlangte 1813 an der Universität Landshut mit der Arbeit \"Über die Verwandtschaft und Verschiedenheit der Poesie und Philosophie\" die philosophische Doktorwürde. Seit 1815 war er Verwaltungsangestellter in München und wurde 1825 bei der Thronbesteigung von König Ludwig I. in dessen Kabinett berufen. 1832 wurde er geheimer Sekretär und 1837 Staatsrat und Hofkultusadministrator beim Oberhofmeisterstab. - Er galt als der \"poetische Gewissensrath des Königs Ludwig I.\" Daneben verfasste er eine größere Anzahl historischer und romantischer Dramen und Erzählungen \"im Stile der Engrosnovellisten des Vormärzes\" (ADB) und veröffentlichte einige Gedichtsammlungen. 1824-25 gab er \"Orpheus. Eine Zeitschrift in zwanglosen Heften\" heraus, die nach vier Heften wieder einging. - Arno Schmidt erwähnt in seiner Fouqué-Biographie einen weiteren Brief Fouqués (5. VIII. 1827) an Weichselbaumer. Schmidt gibt ebenso einen Brief Wilhelm von Humboldts wieder, in dem dieser einen Besuch in Nennhausen (Gutshaus der Familie von Fouqués Gattin Caroline, geb. von Briest) schildert. Auf dem Tisch war Kartoffelsalat. Fouqué jedoch versicherte, normalerweise stehe hier eine Herkulesstatue. Es handelt sich also in unserem Brief um eine Abhandlung über Fouqués Hausgott. - Da Fouqué als Vertreter des \"romantischen Historismus\" der Ritter-, Helden- und Adelswelt verhaftet blieb, fiel er nach 1819 mit seinem Propagandagedicht im Sinne der Restauration: \"Der Mord Augusts von Kotzebue. Freundes Ruf an Deutschlands Jugend\" aus der Zeit. Nach 1820 hatte der frühere Publikumsliebling \"Geltung nur noch bei Thron und Altar\" (Schmidt, Arno, \"Fouqué\" in: NDB). Deshalb suchte er nach Publikationsmöglichkeiten. Weichselbaumer druckte im 4. Heft des \"Orpheus\" (1825) Fouqués \"Der Schottlandsbarden Untergang. Eine wahrhafte Geschichte in Balladen\" ab. - // - Die linke, innere Seite des Doppelblattes mit dem eigentlichen Brief von 1 ½ S. ist tadellos erhalten.
