        The HISTORY Of SCOTLAND, Translated from the Latin of George Buchanan; With NOTES And a Continuation to the Union in the Reign of Queen Anne. By James Aikman, Esq. In Four Volumes. [Vols V & VI: "And a Continuation to the Present Time. In Six Volumes."].

      Published by Blackie Fullarton & Co., and Archibald Fullarton & Co., Edinburgh. 1827 - 1829, Glasgow: - Illustrated with frontis in each volume & a hand-colored folding copperplate map of Scotland in Volume I. BuchananÕs greatest literary achievement of his later years was his Rerum Scoticarum Historia, initially published in 1582, in which he related the history of Scotland from its origin till the death of the regent Lennox in 1571. . the underlying object of the book is the inculcation of those principles of political and religious liberty of which Buchanan had been the consistent champion throughout his career. By the leading scholars of Europe it was adjudged to be a work of transcendent merit, and even in the eighteenth century it was seriously debated whether Caesar, Livy, or Sallust had been his model. In this History, which for fully two centuries kept its place as a standard authority, Buchanan had appealed both to scholars and protestant theologians. [Cambridge History of English & American Literature]. While the work was extremely popular, and remained in print almost continuously well into the 19th C., this was one of the more ambitious editions, extending the History until the 'present' day. Each volume with the contemporaneous ownership signature of one "Thomas Inglis, Gardener / Barriston 1828". Spines darkened a bit. Usual foxing to paper. Vol I front joint starting @ top.

        Sketches of a Tour to the Lakes, of the Character and Customs of the Chippeway Indians. And of incidents connected with the Treaty of Fond du Lac. Also a Vocabulary of the Algic or Chippeway Language

      Fielding Lucas, Jr., Baltimore 1827 - viii-[9]-493+[1] pages with 6 of 29 plates, three appendices: Copy of the Journal of the Proceedings under the treaty of Fond Du Lac, as noted by the Secretary, TREATY Between the United States of American and the Chippeway tribe of Indians; concluded August 5, 1826 and Vocabulary of the Algic, or Chippeway Language. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original blind stamped cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Hpwes: M132, Sabin 43407, Field 994, Pilling: 2383) First edition. Thomas McKenney started as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights. In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there. The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor’s American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture. McKenney’s transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense). In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard’s companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language! Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney’s Indian boys from school and return them to their people. The present volume describes the author's expedition to the Chippewa, Winnegago, and Menominee tribes and the signing of the treaty of Fond du Lac in 1827. Condition: Six of 29 plates, lacks all the colored plates and the frontispiece. Old institutional embossed stamped to title and institutional book plate to front paste down, spine professional repaired, foxing through out else a good to very good copy.

In beautiful contemporary condition, with the bookplate of Thomas W. Streeter laid in, with his pencil notes on front fly leaf.

Stipp's work is most notable for including the first separate printing of John Bradford's NOTES ON KENTUCKY, which first appeared in the KENTUCKY GAZETTE, published in Lexington beginning Aug. 25, 1826. Herein are found some of the basic accounts of Boone and other famous Indian fighters. The rest of the book consists of further anecdotes of the early frontier. A great midwestern rarity, and a mine of firsthand source material on the Kentucky Indian wars during the Revolution. A beautiful copy with excellent provenance, this sold for $1700 at the Streeter sale. HOWES S1011, "d." STREETER SALE 1665. COLEMAN 2247. SABIN 91838. THOMSON 1109. MORGAN 1359. SHOEMAKER 30713.

      Caracas. Feb. 6, 1827.. [2]pp. plus integral blank. Folio. Old fold; slight separation at fold. Light creasing. Very good. In a half morocco box. In this apparently unique broadsheet, Simón Bolivar tenders his resignation as president of Gran Colombia to the Congress in Caracas, Venezuela. By 1827 internal conflicts and political pressures were threatening the stability of the Republic Bolivar had created, Gran Colombia (present-day Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and parts of Peru). In an attempt to pacify dissenters and preserve the fragile federation, Bolivar addressed the Congress, offering to step aside and assuring the people that he had no plans to declare himself as absolute ruler. In this address Bolivar points to the fact that Gran Colombia is in an advantageous position, recognized by the United States and with Great Britain threatening war with Spain. Despite a rosy outlook, Bolivar notes that suspicions that El Libertador will exert himself as a tyrannical dictator continue to plague the political environment. Thus - in the tradition of George Washington - he is resigning from office. He writes (in translation): "In vain do I invoke the example of Washington to defend myself...." Though he is not innocent of ambition, Bolivar wishes to "remove my fellow citizens from the claws of this fury, and free them from uneasiness." Declaring his renunciation to be irrevocable, he writes: "My sword and my heart will nevertheless be for Colombia; and with my last breath I will ask heaven to grant her happiness." Despite this declaration, the Congress refused to accept Bolivar's resignation. Unable to settle on a new constitution and form of government, the Constitutional Convention of 1828 fell apart and Bolivar proclaimed himself dictator for life on August 27th. Intended to be a temporary measure to stabilize the government, this move resulted in an assassination attempt just a month later. Bolivar died two years later of tuberculosis. Not located in any of the usual sources, including Palau and OCLC. An important piece of South American history.

        The Cone of Montmorency of 1827

      Quebec 1827 - A fine watercolour of a the frozen falls of the St. Lawrence River by British army officer James Cockburn, a talented artist of Canadian scenery in this early period. British army officer Major-General James Pattison Cockburn (1779-1847) served in Canada from 1822 to 1823, and again from 1826 to 1832. Most of his fine watercolours were made during his second posting, having made several inspection tours in his capacity as commanding officer of the Royal Artillery in Canada, including visits to the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. "Cockburn was a prolific amateur water-colourist, often working with the intent to publish [including several separately issued prints by Ackermann and Co., as well as illustrations in several works] . His artistic endeavours did not go unnoticed by those of his social circle. Lord and Lady Dalhousie were respected patrons of the arts in the colony during his term as Governor-in-Chief of Canada, 1819-28; they acquired at least two albums of Cockburn views. Lady Aylmer, wife of Lord Dalhousie's successor in office, describes Colonel Cockburn as '.one of the most accurate and elegant artists I have ever met" (Cooke). Cockburn would exhibit at the National Academy of Design in 1836. A contemporary of Cockburn described the winter scene on the St. Lawrence depicted here as follows: 'When the river St. Lawrence is frozen below the falls, the level ice becomes a support, on which the freezing spray descends as sleet; it there remains, and gradually enlarges its base and its height, assuming an irregularly conical form, its dimensions thus continually enlarging become, towards the close of the winter, stupendous." The cone became a winter destination for visitors from the city of Quebec, and as the present image shows part of the attraction was that it was possible to climb and slide down the slopes of the cone. See Allodi 401-403 for similar images of this natural wonder. Four Cockburn albums containing over 350 watercolours were dispersed following the April 27, 1926 Murray Sale at Sotheby and Co., and is the source of most extant examples of his work. His watercolours appear in the permanent collections of the Public Archives Canada, the National Gallery Canada, Royal Ontario Museum, Archives Nationales du Quebec, the McCord Museum, British Museum and National Army Museum, among others.

        The Tyrant Flycatcher"

      London: Robert Havell, Jr., 1827. THE JOVIAL FLYCATCHER Approximate plate size: 39" x 261/2" Approximate frame size: 491/2" x 37" All works are first-edition, aquatint engravings with original hand-color Published in London between 1827 and 1838 by Robert Havell, Jr. "The Tyrant Flycatcher", otherwise known as the Eastern Kingbird, has many detractors, but Audubon was quick to point out its good points, writing: "Man persecutes the Kingbird without mercy... This mortal hatred is occasioned by a propensity which the Tyrant Flycatcher now and then shews to eat a honeybee, which the farmer looks upon as exclusively his own property... Few hawks will venture to approach a farmyard while the Kingbird is near... The many eggs of the poultry which he saves from the plundering crow, the many chickens that are reared under his protection, safe from the clutches of the prowling hawks, the vast number of insects which he devours, and which would otherwise torment the cattle and horses, are benefits conferred by him... and calculated to ensure for him the favor and protection of man." .

        The Military Sketch-Book. Reminiscences of seventeen years in the service abroad and at home. By an Officer of the Line

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Two volumes, octavo, a little foxing yet a lovely set in polished burgundy half calf with gilt lettering by Bayntun. A dark pact between two Bushrangers: Michael Howe and Jack Whitehead. The Military Sketch-Book is an anonymous collection of anecdotes and rambling tales, mostly related to army life and the Peninsular War, from the pen of journalist and satirical writer William Maginn (1793-1842). It contains an arresting - if somewhat romanticised - account of the pursuit of Michael Howe and his dark pact with fellow bushranger Jack Whitehead. The final 54-page chapter concerns the Van Diemen's Land bushrangers. The narrative is supposedly provided by an old soldier, transported long ago following the Nore mutiny. The narrator describes the depredations of a gang of bushrangers, and the formation of a heavily armed party sent into the wilderness to find them. After intensive searching, the men crept upon the bushrangers in dense scrub and found 'a pretty, interesting-looking native girl, sat playing with the long and bushy black ringlets of a stout and wicked looking man seated by her: he had pistols in his belt - wore a fustian jacket, a kangaroo-skin cap and waistcoat, with leather gaiters, and dirty velveteen breeches. I saw him plainly as I see any one here; and what do you think? The fellow had two watches in his fob! This turned out, as I learned afterwards, to be Michael Howe, the second in command of the robbers…'. Three of the narrators party were killed in the ensuing gunfight, and Howe and Whitehead swore their vengeance upon Mr. M'Carthy, the leader of the posse. Upon returning to his remote farmhouse, M'Carthy had men of the 46th regiment stationed on the property. When the bushrangers returned for their revenge they were outmanned and outgunned. The narrator recounts shooting a man in the darkness, and shortly afterwards ambushing another of the bushrangers in the act of stripping the corpse - only to find it was Howe himself decapitating Jack Whitehead in accordance with a dark pact between the rogues. He writes 'I was petrified with astonishment; so Howe got off, and left the mutilated trunk in a pool of blood'. Sensational accounts of bushranging such as this example played on the deepest fears of British readers and informed the popular perception of Australia as a wild and lawless outpost.

        MANIFATTURE DEL REGIO PARCO MANIFACTURES DU PARC ROYAL

      TORINO, PRESSO GIO. BATTISTA MAGGI, 1827Incisione originale eseguita all'acquaforte su matrice di rame, impressa in seppia, senza testo al verso. In lastra, sotto la parte figurata, indicazione degli autori, titolo in francese e in versione italiana, nonché indirizzo dello stampatore in italiano. L'opera, notevole per raffinatezza tecnica e interesse vedutistico, è tratta da un album di 16 vedute di Torino, di chiese e residenze sabaude site nei dintorni della città nonché di altre residenze sabaude erette in altre zone del Piemonte (quali i castelli di Govone e Racconigi). La suite venne eseguita da un abile incisore milanese, su invenzione del disegnatore e litografo piemontese Nicolosino. L'immagine in esame raffigura l'edificio delle Manifatture Tabacchi, animano la veduta personaggi ed imbarcazioni sul fiume; il castello del Regio Parco, detto del Viboccone aveva annessa una chiesa costruita nel 1605 ed affrescata dal Moncalvo, completamente rovinato durante l'assedio del 1706, non fu più ricostruito e sulla sua area sorsero, nel 1768 la manifattura tabacchi, su disegno dell'architetto Ferroggio, e nel 1828 l'attuale Cimitero.

        Additional Remarks on Active Molecules" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, 6, 1829, pp. 161-166

      FIRST EDITION of the second paper Robert Brown wrote on the subject of Brownian motion, the random motion of microscopic particles suspended in a liquid. Brownian motion is sometimes referred to as particle theory. In this paper, Brown discusses the observations of others, describes additional observations that eliminate several other possible causes of the motion, and responds to comments on his earlier paper; also included is a brief description of confirmatory experiments by Holland. The modern history of Brownian motion began in 1827 when Brown observed a continuous jittery motion of pollen grains in water through a microscope and wrote analytically about the phenomenon. He "saw that pollen grains of the herb Clarkia pulchella, while suspended in liquid, engaged in a continuous, haphazard, zig-zag movement" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 290). Based on his surprise at what he found, in this second paper "he continued experiments with other substances -- including inanimate bodies such as minerals and smoke -- and found that when the particles were very small, they all possessed this same motion" (ibid). This observation allowed Brown to rule out the hypothesis that the motion was due to the pollen being alive. The discovery of the physical process and subsequent mathematical explanations of Brownian motion "provided the first conclusive proof of the existence of atoms and molecules" (Wenner Collection). CONDITION & DETAILS: (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [6], 472, [viii], 4. Brown paper: pp. 161-166. Ex-libris bearing only a small paper label at the spine and a discreet stamp on the title page. Bound in three quarter polished black calf over marbled paper boards. GIlt-ruled and lettered at the spine. Minor rubbing and scuffing; tightly and solidly bound. Slight age toning and foxing.

        Additional Remarks on Active Molecules" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, 6, 1829, pp. 161-166.

      - FIRST EDITION of the second paper Robert Brown wrote on the subject of Brownian motion, the random motion of microscopic particles suspended in a liquid. Brownian motion is sometimes referred to as particle theory. In this paper, Brown discusses the observations of others, describes additional observations that eliminate several other possible causes of the motion, and responds to comments on his earlier paper; also included is a brief description of confirmatory experiments by Holland. The modern history of Brownian motion began in 1827 when Brown observed a continuous jittery motion of pollen grains in water through a microscope and wrote analytically about the phenomenon. He "saw that pollen grains of the herb Clarkia pulchella, while suspended in liquid, engaged in a continuous, haphazard, zig-zag movement" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 290). Based on his surprise at what he found, in this second paper "he continued experiments with other substances -- including inanimate bodies such as minerals and smoke -- and found that when the particles were very small, they all possessed this same motion" (ibid). This observation allowed Brown to rule out the hypothesis that the motion was due to the pollen being alive. The discovery of the physical process and subsequent mathematical explanations of Brownian motion "provided the first conclusive proof of the existence of atoms and molecules" (Wenner Collection).
