        Bell's Life in London, and Sporting Chronicle; Combining, with the News of the Week, A rich Repository of Fashion Wit and Humour and the Interesting Incidents of Real Life

      London: Published at Four O'Clock Every Saturday Afternoon by Messrs. Smith's, 192, Strand, London, Ca 1827 - Bell's Life in London was a rival to Pierce Egan's Life in London and Sporting Guide, an offshoot of his highly successful book. Egan began his periodical in 1824 as a Sunday weekly, and in 1826 asked Cruikshank to design some wood engravings to head the paper's regular features, which increased its circulation. Some Cruikshank designs were subsequently used, without the artist's consent, by Bell's paper, and in 1827 Egan, unable to achieve the success of his competitor, sold out to Bell, who merged the two journals into one. Bell's was a conspicuous success: it sold as many as sixteen thousand copies weekly to the poorest classes. This advertisement, in addition to its lively cover of over twenty woodcuts, features a number of poetical effusions to Royalty, the Nobility, Members of Parliament, the Clergy, the Army and Navy, the Commercial, Agricultural and Theatrical Worlds, and, of course, Sportsmen of Every Degree The advertisement is not a part of Bell's periodical, but was a separately issued publication to promote circulation Folio. A four-page advertisement for Bell's paper, printed on two conjugate leaves by B. Bensley, Bolt Court, Fleet Street. First sheet illustrated with numerous sporting subjects in the style of George Cruikshank. Fine, fresh copy. Patten, George Cruikshank, I, pp. 300-301 et seq

        SKETCHES AND MEMORANDA OF THE WORKS FOR THE TUNNEL UNDER THE THAMES, FROM ROTHERHITHE TO WAPPING

      Published and sold at the Tunnel Works, Rotherhithe, and by Messers. Harvey and Darton, 55, Gracechurch Street. Printed by the Philanthropic Society, St. George's Fields., London 1827 - Oblong 16 mo., 5 3/8 x 3 3/4 inches, (26) pp., 12 plates, steel engravings and lithographs, of which two are folding and one has an overlay. Original marbled paper wrappers, with printed label, backed in linen. Slight occasional foxing., with a short tear to the backing at the base of the spine. Very good. THE FIRST UNDERWATER TUNNEL IN THE WORLD"Several projects to build a tunnel under the Thames had previously been attempted in order to improve north-south communications. In 1798, Ralph Dodd suggested the construction of a tunnel between Gravesend and Tilbury. Although a shaft was effectively sunk at Gravesend in 1800-1802, construction was stopped for two main reasons: the presence of quicksand, which allowed the river to break in, and the exorbitant cost. In 1804, the Thames Archway Project was started for a tunnel between Rotherhithe and Limehouse. The engineer was Robert Vazie. After a shaft was sunk at Rotherhithe, Vazie began work on a drift-way. In November 1807, Richard Trevithik replaced Vazie as engineer. The drift-way eventually revealed that much of the strata was sand and gravel, giving way to quicksand occasionally. In 1808, a constant flood finally forced Trevithik to stop the excavation. The drift-way was only within 70 ft. of the north bank. In 1809, the Thames Archway Company opened a public competition for schemes that could effectively address the technical and financial challenges in the building of this tunnel. Charles Wyatt won with a proposal to make a tunnel by digging a trench in the bed of the Thames, sinking brick cylinders into the trench and joining them underwater. The Company hired John Isaac Hawkins to test the viability of the plan. In 1810-1811, the cylinders were built, lowered and joined with a mixture of mud and gravel. However, this new scheme again failed to solve the two familiar difficulties: the vulnerability of the riverbed and the high cost. As we will see in this essay, Brunel's engineering ingenuity eventually overcame both of these formidable challenges." Pablo Alvarez, Curator of Rare Books, University of Rochester.

        Group of Four Autograph Letters Signed by the Marquis de Lafayette, written from La Grange 1822 ¿ 1824, plus two letters by his son Georges Washington Lafayette, 1823 and 1827

      - small quarto and quarto, 6 letters, 9 pages, in very good, very clean and legible condition. An interesting collection of letters by Lafayette and his son, who was sent to America during the French Revolution as a ward of George Washington, discussing political matters and Lafayette¿s financial affairs in his later days, dating from a period bracketing his triumphal tour in America. They were all presumably written to a Monsieur Degas, several are addressed directly to him. ¿During the Restoration era (1815-1830), Lafayette served several terms in the Chamber of Deputies, opposing Bourbon policy and citing American political principles and the American experience as a model for France. Chateau La Grange, his home some forty miles southeast of Paris, became a mecca for Americans, while at the same time it was often a refuge for exiled revolutionaries from other European states, for Lafayette was supporting liberal revolutions wherever they occurred, from Poland to Latin America. After President James Monroe invited him to visit the United States, Lafayette toured every state of the union in 1824-1825. He daily received tumultuous welcomes as a hero of the American Revolution, who for a half-century had advocated the principles of the American republic and of its patriarch, Washington, and who had never faltered in his devotion to or faith in the cause of human liberty. During the next decade scores of counties, cities, and other public places were named for him or for his estate at La Grange. During the French Revolution of 1830, Lafayette once more became head of the national guard. Again he sought to maintain order and peace while a constitutional regime was created. He supported Louis Philippe because the Orleans line seemed to promise ¿a monarchy with republican institutions,¿ but the performance belied the promise. Lafayette was still in opposition when he died, having spent nearly sixty years of his life as a public figure, always identified with the example of America as a free and prosperous republic.¿ ¿ ANB. 1. La Grange, 14 Octobre, 1822, Lafayette to an unidentified recipient, [Mons. Degas?] on political matters. Small quarto, 1 page, short letter but nicely signed. 2. La Grange 19, Octobre, 1822, Lafayette to Mons Degas, Coulommiers, concerning Lafayette¿s ¿affair electorale,¿ etc. Small quarto, 1 page, short but nicely signed. 3. La Grange, 14 Janvier, 1824, Lafayette, to an unnamed recipient [M. Degas] concerns government affairs. Quarto, one page, signed by Lafayette. 4. La Grange, 21 Janvier, 1824, Lafayette to Mons. Degas, concerning Lafayette¿s contribution to current legislation. Small quarto, one page, short but signed by Lafayette. Georges Washington Lafayette Letters: 1. La Grange, 18, Janvier, 1823 G. W. Lafayette to an unidentified governmental figure, small quarto, two pages, signed G. W. Lafayette. Georges writes in an exasperated and somewhat angry tone. His father, the Marquis, is in urgent need of signatures to release funds due to him under the terms of his wife¿s testament [Mme Adrienne Francoise de Noailles, Marquise de La Fayette, 1759-1807]. His father has an insufficiency of funds, etc. 2. La Grange, 2 Juin, 1827, G.W. Lafayette to Mons. Degas, Coulommiers, small quarto one page, signed by G. W. Lafayette, plus two page manuscript in George¿s hand. This concerns his father¿s right of inheritance to the estate of the Lusignem family. Georges request documents from M. Degas, who has handled affairs on behalf of the Marquis. Appended to this letter is a two page list in Georges¿ hand of documents outlining the finances and financial rights of the Marquise de Lafayette, including mention of his inheritances per the testament of his wife, who died in 1807. Two remarkable windows into the finances of the Marquis de Lafayette in his later days. Georges

        Autograph letter draft.

      No place, 30. XII. 1827. - 4to. 20 pp. on sewn double leaves. To Philip Henry, 4th Earl Stanhope (1781-1855, later custodian of Kaspar Hauser), discussing the political situation in Europe after the Battle of Navarino, which led to Greek independence from Ottoman rule. Gentz, no disciple of Philhellenism, anticipates the importance of the Battle's outcome for the European balance of powers and deplores the roles played by the political forces of the Great Powers. Gentz writes to the Earl, whose enthusiasm for all things German irritated his English countrymen, in German, penning only a draft and leaving the fair copy to his secretary, as he assumes his own handwriting might pose a problem to the unaccustomed reader: "[.] Ich laße diesen Brief durch eine fremde, aber vollkommen sichre Hand schreiben, weil ich einmal weiß, daß deutsche Briefe Ihnen die liebsten sind, und doch besorge, daß Sie meine Hand mit etwas mehr Anstrengung als eine Kanzley-Schrift lesen möchten [.] Sie kehren, Mein Verehrter Lord, in einem höchst entscheidenden Augenblicke in Ihr Vaterland zurück. Nach allem, was sich in den letzten vier oder sechs Wochen in England zugetragen hat, scheint mir eine Ministerial-Revoluzion unvermeidlich. Die öffentliche Meynung spricht sich täglich stärker und drohender über das Attentat von Navarin, den Traktat von London, und die ganze verderbliche Politik, die diesen Traktat erzeugt hat, aus [.] Das alles hat in den letzten vier Wochen eine andre Gestalt angenommen. Ihre Minister hatten sich geschmeichelt, daß Oesterreich durch seinen Einfluß in Constantinopel die Türken zum Nachgeben bewegen, und daß ihnen dies einen Ausgang aus dem Labyrinth, in welches sie sich durch ein grundfalsches und verderbliches System verwickelt hatten, bereiten würde. Diese Aussicht schlug fehl. Obgleich unser Cabinet, mit altgewohnter Treue und Ehrlichkeit alle seine Kräfte anstrengte, um den letzten Bruch zu hintertreiben, so war doch, seit der Katastrophe von Navarin, und bey dem fortdauernden höchst unklugen und feindlichen Benehmen der drey Gesandten, nach dieser Katastrophe, jeder Versuch bey der Pforte fruchtlos. [.] Die französische Regierung ist die verachtetste, und die verächtlichste die es heute in Europa giebt. Hierüber sind alle Parteyen einig. Wie diese im Todeskampf begriffne, elende Regierung die Türkisch-Griechische Sache behandelt hat - wird man dereinst den Geschichtsschreibern kaum glauben [.] Für Rußland allein haben England und Frankreich gearbeitet, für Rußland allein den unseligen Tripel-Traktat unterzeichnet, für Rußland allein bey Navarin die Türkische Seemacht vertilgt [.] Der Weg nach der Hauptstadt des Türkischen Reiches ist jetzt dem Russen auf allen Seiten geöfnet [.] Und das alles setzt England für das lächerlichste aller Hirngespinste, für die sogenannte Befreyung der unwürdigsten Rebellen, die je die Sonne beschienen hat, aufs Spiel! It cannot be [.]". - An extensive letter draft with numerous autograph insertions, deletions, and changes. Later publication note by a different hand (c. 1870) at the top of f. 1r; a quote which Gentz omitted from the letter (obviously intending his secretary to supply the text) bears the later editor's pencil note: "Die Stelle fehlt". - Highly characteristic document of Gentz's judgment of the European situation at the moment of the birth of modern Greece: one of the most talented statesmen of his time proves great skill in appraising the political results for the Great Powers; at the same time, the letter gives evidence that a visionary evaluation of the Greek cause, so highly regarded by many contemporaries, was beyond Gentz's capacity or inclination. Printed in normalised orthography in: Schlesier, Gustav v. (ed.). Schriften von Friedrich von Gentz. Ein Denkmal. Vol. V (1840), p. 138-146.

      [Richmond]: T. W. White, Printer, Opposite the Bell Tavern, [1827].. 28pp. Dsb. Modern tape reinforcement to spine. Even toning to text areas, light foxing to margins. Very good. William Branch Giles served variously as U. S. Congressman, U. S. Senator, and Governor of Virginia from 1790 until shortly before his death in 1830. In the current work, Giles argues against the need for a constitutional convention to address the issue of representation. He lays the foundation for his position at the Virginia Convention of 1829-1830, where he would support the current apportionment of the Virginia House of Delegates, but oppose current voting requirements (restrictive to landowners) and also, perhaps ironically, argue against strengthening the governorship.

      Paris 1827 - The works of the great botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) seem to demand the invention of lofty praise. Described both as the “Rembrandt” and the “Raphael” of Flowers by nineteenth century writers, Redoute occupies a central position in the development of European botanical art. Born into a family of artists, Redoute's talents were recognized and encouraged from an early age. He studied botany with the noted naturalist Heritier de Brutelle, and learned the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum from Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King. By this master painter's own account, his pupil's work was finer. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the exquisite watercolor models that Redoute provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute's remarkable body of work. The Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs is one of Redoute's last, and most personal works. It is a selection of favorite flowers and fruits by a master who had devoted a lifetime to the art of botanical illustration. The images include spectacular blossoms plucked from formal gardens, as well as the more modest blooms of wayside flowers. These small and richly colored plates convey an intimate sense of beauty that sets them apart from other botanical works.

        Paradise Lost of Milton With Illustrations, Designed and Engraved by John Martin.

      London Septimus Prowett 1827 - John Milton’s "Paradise Lost" with John Martin’s Illustrations, One of 50 copies MILTON, John. The Paradise Lost of Milton. With Illustrations, Designed and Engraved by John Martin. London: Septimus Prowett, 1827. First (Imperial Quarto) edition. One of only 50 copies with the smaller set of engravings. According to Campbell there were two issues of the Imperial Quarto Edition: "(2) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., with fully lettered prints from the larger set of plates, at £10 16s.(3) Imperial Quarto Edition, measuring 10 7/8 x 15 1/4 in., containing lettered proofs of the smaller set of the engravings: limited to 50 copies, at 12 guineas for the complete publication." Thus even though the images were smaller, this edition was more expensive upon publication. Campbell states "only three copies of the Imperial Quarto edition containing proofs from the smaller set of engravings are now known" (this was in 1992). Two volumes bound in one. Large quarto (14 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches; 366 x 268 mm.). [4], 228; [2], 218 pp. Twenty-four mezzotint plates in the smaller format (image size: 8 x 5 1/2 inches), with tissue guards. Contemporary burgundy pebble-grain morocco. Covers decoratively paneled in gilt, spines paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt spine bands, gilt board edges, wide gilt-tooled dentelles, marbled endpapers and doublures, all edges gilt. Some light foxing (mainly to the plate margins and prelims). An excellent copy of this scarce edition. "This book was one of the great publishing enterprises of the age. It appeared in eight different formats, four with the large plates (8 by 11 inches) and four with the small (6 by 8 inches). Martin executed the forty-eight mezzotints himself. The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunel’s new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" (Ray). "Martin’s illustrations to John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost represent a turning point in his career. The vast majority of Martin’s most famous works.were based upon either Miltonic or biblical subject matter—the Paradise Lost series are of particular importance both as one of his chief bodies of designs and as the focal point for the beginning of his career as a mezzotint engraver. Begun by early 1824, this series of engravings was the result of a commission from a little known American publisher, names Septimus Prowett. Prowett, who was based in London, approached Martin to produce 24 mezzotint illustrations.to accompany an issue of Milton’s text which was to be produced in twelve parts.To appreciate the impact which Martin’s designs had upon his public, one must realize the extent to which these extraordinary visions represented an entirely new conception of approach to the art of illustration. Not only were they ‘original’ in the truest sense of the word—designed directly on the plates without the aid of preparatory sketches, they were some of the earliest mezzotints to have been made using soft steel rather than copper, and they were the first illustrations of Milton’s epic work to have been made in the mezzotint medium.The greatest significance of Martin’s illustrations, however, was in their spectacular visionary content.Martin laid before his public the spectacular settings of the epic tale—the open voids of the Creation, the vast vaulted caverns of Hell vanishing into the utter blackness of Chaos, the daunting scale of the city of Pandemonium, and the sweeping beauty f Heaven itself. These images have no serious counterpart and are the very essence of the sublime in Romantic art. They are without doubt one of the most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" (Campbell, John Martin, Visionary Printmaker, pp. 38-41).

      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.

      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.
