(Vol. 2 also has 5 woodcuts in text.) NOTE: ALL THE PLATES IN THIS SET WERE SUPERBLY HAND-COLORED.Ward was the British Charge d'Affaires in Mexico from 1825 - 1827; his account of Mexico is particularly notable in the area of mining -- British interest in Mexican mining was at a high pitch, and Ward's job was to investigate the viability for investment -- though he saw much of the country. The plates are superb, from drawings by Ward's, wife on the spot, This is one of the finest early travel books on Mexico, observed shortly after it had gained independence from Spain -- Streeter calls it the "classic book on Mexico." An appendix, not by Ward, includes sections on Texas, Sinaloa and Sonora. (Sabin 101302) This copy has been professionally rebound with new leather spines over the original boards; spine is in compartments, gilt-tooled, red title pieces: plates still protected by original tissues, without any of the foxing that often accompanies these plates. Very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [HUGE COLLECTION OF CHENEY FAMILY CORRESPONDENCE, SPANNING THE 1870s TO THE EARLY 1900s, INCLUDING BUSINESS CORRESPONDENCE RELATING TO THEIR IVORY IMPORTING AND IVORY GOODS MANUFACTURING FIRM, THE LEGAL PRACTICE OF GEORGE L. CHENEY, SOCIETY FUNCTIONS, AND MUCH MORE]

      [New York, Chicago, Essex, Ct., and elswhere. 1850s to 1910s].. Thousands of letters, usually numbering from two to four pages each, most with the original stamped envelopes included. Also included are diaries, journals, invoices for goods, etc. Expected wear, mostly to envelopes. On the whole in very good condition. A massive collection of original correspondence, numbering into the thousands of individual letters, recording the business and personal lives of George A. Cheney, his wife Sarah Greene Cheney, their son George L. Cheney, his wife, Harriet Weeks Cheney, and many others. George Cheney was the owner of a prominent Connecticut ivory business, importing ivory goods from India and selling manufactured ivory pieces in the United States. His wife, Sarah Greene Cheney, came from a prominent Rhode Island family, and her father was one of George A. Cheney's first employers. Their son, George L. Cheney, was a graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law School, became a prominent lawyer, and was also involved in the ivory business. This archive is a remarkable record of several decades in the lives of a prominent Connecticut and New York family, and offer endless opportunities for research into the business and social affairs of the era. George Arthur Cheney (1828-1901) was only twenty-one years old when he made his first voyage to Africa, in 1850. He learned Swahili and Portuguese, making him a valued asset as a trader in eastern Africa. In early 1853 he married Sarah Greene, the daughter of his employer, Rufus Greene, a Providence, Rhode Island shipping merchant who was eager to participate in the trade with Zanzibar. Early in his career George Cheney made a name for himself by brokering a single deal for 60,000 pounds of ivory. Cheney spent most of the decade of the 1850s in Zanzibar, working for Rufus Greene and exporting a great variety of goods, including ivory, from Africa to the United States. In 1862, just after the period covered by this archive, Cheney severed his relationship with Rufus Greene and became a partner of Samuel Merritt Comstock, who played a leading role in the ivory business and was one of the shapers of the town of Ivoryton, Connecticut. At their peak, Comstock, Cheney and Co. would employ some 700 people, and Ivoryton was a full- fledged company town, dominated by a large ivory finishing factory and with dormitories for workers and a factory store. George Cheney and Sarah Greene had four children, three of which survived to adulthood. Two of their children were born to them in Zanzibar. Mrs. Cheney returned to the United States in 1856, and George A. Cheney moved back to the U.S. shortly thereafter. Their son, George L. Cheney, graduated Phillips Exeter Academy in June, 1874, attended Harvard University (class of 1878) and then Harvard Law School, from which he graduated in 1881. By the early 1880s he was involved with the family ivory business in Connecticut, Comstock, Cheney & Co. He not only worked in the family business, he also practiced law, and included in this collection are two autograph notes, signed (on one sheet) by James Bradley Thayer, Harvard Law School professor, recommending George L. Cheney for jobs. This collection is made up of various sorts of manuscript material - the bulk being autograph letters, almost always with their original addressed and stamped envelopes. Many of the envelopes bear the printed return address of Comstock, Cheney & Co. There are also manuscript diaries and commonplace books, receipts for goods purchased over several decades, land and property indentures, etc. The majority of the letters are from George L. Cheney to his parents, and from them to him, covering the period from the 1870s-1890s. Numbering in the hundreds, these letters discuss family events and goings on, and matters relating to the family ivory business. There are also a large number of letters to George L. Cheney from his sibling, from business associates and from school friends. There are also hundreds of letters between George L. Cheney and his wife, Harriet Weeks Cheney. Cheney seems to have often been working in Chicago, and wrote to Harriet Cheney in New York. There are also a large number of letters to Harriet Cheney from members of her family, and to George L. Cheney from his daughters Sarah and Julia. The earliest letters in the collection were written to Harriet Cheney's mother, Mrs. R.D. Weeks, in New York and the Berkshires in the 1850s. Also included are several manuscript diaries of George L. Cheney, including those kept while he was a student and law student at Harvard, expense books for the same period, and dairies for the years 1885 to 1887. There are also literary commonplace books from the 1870s and early 1900s, as well as dozens of family bills and invoices, many of them on Connecticut billheads, for the same period.

        The Hobart Town Almanack for the year 1829

      Hobart Town, 1828. 24mo, six engraved plates in total, including two engraved titles (for the alamanac and the calendar) both with vignettes, two engraved signals plates (one coloured) and two other engraved views; contemporary red roan, gilt; bookplate of Bernard Gore Brett. With fine engravings by Thomas Bock. The first and rarest of Ross's Tasmanian almanacs, in a very attractive binding.Four of the engraved plates, including the two views of the "Fall of the Derwent" and "Macquarie Street, Hobart Town", are engraved by Thomas Bock after originals by G. Frankland; the other two are noted only as being engraved by Bock. Thomas Bock had arrived in Hobart in January 1824, and despite being a convict, almost immediately began working as an engraver. Now most famous for the work he did for Lady Franklin engraving portraits of some Tasmanian Aborigines, the present almanac is some of his earliest work. The artist George Frankland was in the colony as a surveyor, having arrived in mid-1827, and took part in several journeys of exploration.The almanac also includes a most interesting "Descriptive Itinerary of Van Diemen's Land" (pp. 33-77).

        Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson, author of the American Ornithology.

      Philadelphia: Published by Harrison Hall, 1828. - ORD, George (4 Mar. 1781-24 Jan. 1866). Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson, author of the American Ornithology. Philadelphia: Published by Harrison Hall, 1828. 8vo., (9 6/8 x 6 inches). (Some occasional spotting). Original muslin backed drab paper boards, printed paper label on the spine, uncut (lower cover nearly detached, covers spotted, early newspaper clippings laid down on the front endpapers). Provenance: PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed on the title-page "To Col. C.C. Biddle with the respects of the Author". FIRST EDITION AND PRESENTATION COPY. As a young man Ord became a protege of Alexander Wilson, creator of the celebrated "American Ornithology; or, The Natural History of the Birds of the United States". "After Wilson's death in 1813, Ord completed the eighth volume of the Ornithology. In 1814 he published the ninth and final volume from Wilson's notes and added a biography of his friend, which he later expanded into the book Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson (1828; repr. 1871).Despite his many personal accomplishments, Ord is best remembered for his animosity toward Wilson's most famous ornithological rival, John James Audubon. As Wilson's close friend, biographer, and executor, Ord may have felt threatened by Audubon's considerable talent when he burst onto the ornithological scene a decade after Wilson's death. After their first meeting at the Academy of Natural Sciences in 1824, Ord aggressively campaigned against Audubon, using his significant influence to try to prevent Audubon from realizing success in scientific circles in the United States and abroad. Famed for his sharp tongue in defaming others, Ord made many assertions about Audubon's morals, intelligence, and integrity that today would almost certainly be considered libelous. In letters to friends and associates, he called the younger naturalist a "charlatan," an "impudent pretender," and a "contemptible imposter." To Charles Lucien Bonaparte, the influential ornithologist and nephew of Napoleon, Ord declared Audubon's Ornithological Biography "the biggest hodgepodge of stupidity and lies that I have ever seen." Though his campaign was unsuccessful in the end, it caused Audubon great distress and slowed his acceptance by some members of the scientific community" (Robert McCracken Peck for DNB). In 1859 Ord contributed chapters on eminent Philadelphians Clement Cornell Biddle, and his father Colonel Clement Biddle in "Eminent Philadelphians now Deceased. Collected from Original and Authentic Sources", 1859. The younger Biddle, to whom this example of Ord's biography of Wilson was presented, was born in, 1784, went to sea in 1800, then studied to became a lawyer before "the attack upon the Chesapeake frigate occurring about this time, the whole nation was aroused to an assertion of its rights against the pretensions of Great Britain; and, having a predilection for a military life, he accepted a commission, as Captain of dragoons, from President Jefferson, and was stationed with his regiment at New Orleans. The excitement was. however, temporarily lulled, and Mr. Biddle resigned his commission. But when war was declared against Great Britain, in 1812, he originated, in his native city, the company of volunteers known as the State Fencibles, of which company he was elected Captain, in July, 1812. Although just married, and in circumstances by no means opulent, he gave his whole time and abilities, during the continuance of the war, to the service of his country. On the organization of the First Regiment of Volunteer Light Infantry, of the Pennsylvania line, he was elected Colonel. In the autumn of 1814 his regiment was stationed at Camp Dupont, in the State of Delaware; but, owing to the retreat of the enemy from Baltimore, it was never actively engaged. Upon the restoration of peace, Mr. Biddle returned to Philadelphia, and was appointed by the Governor a Notary Public, which office he exercised for several years.Upon the assembling of the Free Trade C [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE CASKET OR FLOWERS OF LITERATURE, WIT AND SENTIMENT. The School of Flora

      This volume of the CASKET, which was published monthly, includes the full year from January to December of 1828. It is of particular interest because it includes the "New Series" of "The School of Flora," written by the famous Franco-American botanist Constantine Samuel Rafinesque, "Perhaps the most colorful and controversial naturalist in nineteenth century America..." (see Ziser, M. "Constantine Samuel Rafinesque " in Patterson, D, ed. EARLY AMERICAN NATURE WRITERS, p.295). The series began in 1827 and was published in both the monthly CASKET and the weekly Saturday Evening Post, both of which were owned by the publisher Atkinson. By the end of 1828 a total of 66 flower studies had been published, each with a separate illustration. Rafinesque identified the flower by its botanical, English and French names, and provided a general description of the plant's properties, often including its medicinal and horticultural uses along with its floral history. Significantly, each of the 66 entries concludes with an emblematic meaning being ascribed to the plant. "These pieces with flower meanings ran from 1827 to the end of 1828, and thus probably constitute the first language of flowers published (and created) in America." (Seaton, B. THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS/ A HISTORY p. 85) Forty-two of these emblems appeared in 1827 while the remaining 24 appear in the present volume. Some additional entries for the" School of Flora" appeared in later years, but these do not include floral emblems. In this 1828 volume, which begins the "New Series," the first 10 botanical entries are illustrated two to a page on a separate sheet opposite the relevant text; the remaining 14 combine illustration and text on the same page . According to Seaton, some of the wood engravings are original, while others were taken by Rafinesque from Bigelow's AMERICAN MEDICAL BOTANY (1817-20) or Barton' s VEGETABLE MATERIA MEDICA (1817-18) (Seaton also notes that some of the images are reversed, suggesting the use of camera lucida). The actual nature of this language of flowers, however, appears to be unique to Rafinesque. Many of the plants are native to the North American continent, some probably observed during Rafinesque's botanizing travels between Kentucky and Pennsylvania. The emblems assigned are often negative or strictly practical. There is little that mimics the European language of flowers (and, according to Seaton, nothing suggesting that Rafinesque consulted a lot of other texts) while there is much that suggests a new floral language of love especially suited to the American character. Underscoring this is Rafinesque's known disappointment in love, and his hardships and losses in the New World. The American cranberry stands for Sour Temper; the alpine silverleaf for War; the Soapwort gentian for Bitter Reproof; the Missouri poppy, Presumption, etc. However, the traditional emblem of the moss rose, Female Beauty, remains. There is a great deal of additional general content in the Casket, from engravings and biographies of early presidents to extracts from literature, travel, and word games such as the "Puzzler." There are additional wood-engravings in the text included in each issue which show views of mostly East Coast scenery. Some of the additional material of interest to the garden and flower historian are the view of Haviland's pagoda built in conjunction with Philadelphia's garden labyrinth and an account of the Père La Chaise cemetery in Paris. This 1828 volume of the CASKET appears to be uncommon. Although there are many holdings of the various years of the Casket listed in online library catalogues, there are few complete runs. OCLC locates two holdings only under the specific title of "School of Flora," as published in the CASKET: one at the American Philosophical Society Library which appears to hold the relevant issues and one at Harvard Botanical Libraries, which has a full volume for 1828.8vo (22 x 14 cm); decoratively engraved title +572 pp. illustrated from wood-engravings + iv pp. index.+ 11 full page engraved portraits;lacking "The Darling Asleep" for March called for in the General Index of embellishments (not removed, but never bound in) + 24 wood-engraved illustrations printed two to a page hors texte. Bound in contemporary marbled paper covered boards with calf spine and corners, heavily worn at extremities, hinges cracking, but sewing firm; spine gilt ruled , titled and dated; internally, scattered light to moderate foxing and some brown spots and small ink stains; occasional small perforations and paper thinning in text, possibly from printing irregularies.

In due course he rose to the rank of surgeon, and continued in the navy until 1813, when he retired on half-pay. Dr. Granville had a natural aptitude for acquiring languages and having made good use of the opportunities of doing so, which his travels had afforded him, was by this time master of many tongues. In addition to other avocations at this time, he acted occasionally as translator and interpreter to the Foreign Office, as courier and as foreign correspondent. Having determined to practise as a physician in London, he, with the consent of his family, assumed the maternal surname of Granville in addition to that of Bozzi, by which he had previously been known. By the advice of his friend, Sir Walter Farquhar, he applied himself to midwifery, and in 1816 proceeded to Paris, where he remained for eighteen months, studying midwifery under Capuron and Deveux at the Maternite, and the diseases of women and children at the Hopital des Femmes and the Hopital des Enfants. Returning to London, he settled in Savile-row, and on the 22nd December, 1817, was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians, and in 1818, a fellow of the Royal Society. Through the recommendation of Sir Walter Farquhar and several distinguished persons, English and foreign, to whom he had become known in the course of his travels abroad, he soon got into practice as an accoucheur, and for several years enjoyed a considerable business in that department. Twice had he to visit Russia in his medical capacity, first in 1827, in charge of the countess Woronzow to St. Petersburg; and secondly in 1849, to attend the princess Tczernicheff, the wife of the Russian Minister of War at St. Petersburg, in her confinement. In 1835, Dr. Granville's attention was attracted to the mineral waters, first of Germany and then of England, the more important of which in both countries he personally visited and minutely examined. Becoming convinced of their value in the treatment of disease, he devoted himself, with characteristic energy and determination, to making them more generally known and appreciated in this country than they then were. His work, The Spas of Germany became, in some sort, the text-book for those seeking information on the subject, and its author the great authority to whom invalids in England resorted for guidance in the selection of a spa suited to their individual cases. In 1841, appeared his work on the English Waters and Health resorts, The Spas of England and Principal Sea Bathing Places in three volumes. Very early in the course of his investigations, Dr. Granville formed a high opinion of the value of the Kissingen waters, and from the year 1840 down to 1868, was in the habit of spending about three months of every year, from June to September, as a practising physician at Kissingen, after which he returned to London for the remainder of the year. In 1858, he paid a flying visit to Vichy and its springs, and on his return to London sent to the press a sketch of their chemical and physical characters, and of their efficacy in the treatment of various diseases. Dr. Granville retained his activity and energy to an unusually late period of his life. In 1863, he completed his eightieth year, and until then had not felt that he was an old man. But from that date, age seemed to creep upon him fast. His intellect was undimmed, but his bodily strength became enfeebled, though he was able to continue his summer visits to Kissingen as late as the year 1868, when he had a most brilliant season, surrounded by numbers of his old patients, all of whom seemed to have gone to Kissingen to consult him for the last time. On his return to England, he determined never to leave it again, and having finally relinquished practice, he commenced writing his autobiography. In 1871, he left London to spend the winter at Dover, and died there 3rd March, 1872, aged eighty-nine. Dr. Granville was a man of good natural abilities which he cultivated in a manner calculated to lead to success in the course of life to which he devoted himself. He had travelled much, he spoke many modern languages, he was easy and entertaining in conversation, and he sought society and entered largely into it. As a physician, his attentions to his patients were unremitting, he was full of resources, and had great confidence in his own powers, a feeling which he had the faculty of imparting to others; he was a good nurse and a better cook, qualities which did him good service on many occasions, and contributed, in no slight degree, to the entire trust reposed in him by many of his patients. His autobiography, an interesting work, The Autobiography of A. B. Granville, M.D., F.R.S., being eighty-five years of the Life of a Physician edited by his daughter, appeared in two volumes, 8vo., in 1874. Dr. Granville was a volum...

        A Series of Figures Shewing all the motions in the Manual and Platoon Exercises.

      William Clowes, London 1828 - Octavo, letterpress and 26 plates, some offsetting as common; an appealing copy in contemporary red quarter roan, rubbed. Mitchell on military drill. Major Mitchell's famous book on military exercises and musketry drills with its series of marvellous lithographic plates.Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell, explorer and Surveyor-General in New South Wales, arrived in Sydney in 1827, but this remarkable little book dates from the period immediately before he left England. Mitchell had seen action in the Peninsula War, and was for some years employed by Sir George Murray to produce plans of the major battlefields. However, the early 1820s was a fallow period for Mitchell, who was placed on half pay in 1826: the distinct lack of opportunities for the ambitious young man was what led him to lobby for appointment in New South Wales.This interesting work was clearly one of the ways in which he supplemented his income, and certainly shows Mitchell's undoubted ability with preparing illustrations for publication, as the series of drills included here are very neatly done. An 1825 edition is the earliest recorded, and although Ferguson noted only an 1830 edition, this work was clearly widely used as there was - at least - other editions in 1827 and 1828 (as here). Any copy is now quite scarce on the market.
