George Vancouver was born in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, England on June 22, 1757. He began his naval career aboard the HMS Resolution, captained by James Cook. Upon completion of two voyages with Captain Cook, Vancouver was then commissioned as a Lieutenant aboard the HMS Martin surveying coast lines. It is this work that would set him apart. Following the Nootka Crisis (which resulted in skirmishes between the Spanish and the English as both tried to assert their authority over the territory), Captain Vancouver was given the Discovery and the Chatham and charged with the task of surveying the Pacific Northwest coastline. The mission was time consuming as the Discovery and the Chatham were too large to fit into the many channels and inlets of the coastline; instead small ship boats were sent in every direction to examine the coast up close. Vancouver’s maps were so great in detail that they were used as the key reference for coastal navigation for generations to come. The English sea captain encountered aid from both Native Americans and other explorers in the area. Vancouver returned to the Sandwich Islands before completing his America surveys. Once finished in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver and his men sailed south along the Americas before rounding the tip of Cape Horn and returning home. In addition to his contributions to navigational records of the Pacific Northwest, he also contributed many surveys of Australia, the Galapagos Islands, the Sandwich Islands and Mexico and Chile. His ships also introduced new plants such as the orange and cattle to the Sandwich Islands. Captain Vancouver was welcomed home to a flurry of political charges and was challenged to a duel by Thomas Pitt. To weak to respond, Vancouver lived the remainder of his days in obscurity. He was buried in a modest grave in Petersham, Surrey in 1798.

      - 2 original drawings of Antilopes of the above work titled 'Antilope Dama' [by F. Bürde]. The first plate measures 310 x 450mm and is an ink wash drawing over pencil of a group of 4 Antilopes. Of the animal in the foreground the exact measures of length of legs, head etc are marked in pencil. The second plate measures 290 x 420mm and is a elaborate pencil drawing almost idential to the first drawing but adding one antilope to the group. This drawing is dated 18 February 1828 and also titled 'Antilope Dama'. The 2 plates are the orginal drawings for plate 6 of the mammalia section of Ehrenberg's work. This plate was drawn and lithographed by F. Bürde. The first orginal ink wash plate has an illegible signature. Added to the group of the 2 original drawings is a proof plate, a fine handcoloured lithograph, 'Antilope Addax femina. Dongala', which is plate IV of the mammalia section."The journey led through the Libyan desert to Cyrenaica, to Fayum in 1821, toward the Nile to Dongola, and the shores of the Red Sea (in 1823) and yielded an unexpected large body of scientific result. Of the animal species alone, 3.987 (34.000 individual zoological objects) were sent to the collections of the Berlin Zoological Museum." (DSB). Ehrenberg was the only survivor of the expedition.B.M.(N.H.) II, 515; Junk Rara 138. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Elia. Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature in the London Magazine. First Series [with] Elia. Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature in the London Magazine. Second Series

      Carey, Lea, and Carey, Philadelphia 1828 - First American Editions and the true first complete edition of the second series of essays (the second series wasn't published in England until 1833 as *The Last Essays of Elia*). Two volumes. 12mos. Linen and original printed glazed papercovered boards with applied paper spine labels. Each volume bears on the front pastedown the bookplate of James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., grandson of the American author. Laid in are an old bookseller's description, and a letter dated in 1916, to Mrs. James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., sending the books along, and discussing some of the bibliographical niceties. Front joint professionally and neatly repaired, and the spine label partly perished on *First Series,* small stains to the boards, chip to the unprinted front fly in *Second Series*, still a nice set, in the uncommon original boards, in better condition than one might reasonably expect of these famous, autobiographical essays, and with an interesting association. In 1820 Lamb invented the pseudonym for his first essay, about the work place of his brother, by taking the name of a clerk no longer employed there. The pseudonym stuck, however, and it allowed Lamb to develop a persona with which he examined a variety of subjects with celebrated humor and style. Probably Lamb's best work, though he is also remembered for his children's versions of Shakespeare and Homer which he wrote with his sister Mary (who became his charge after she had a bout of insanity in 1796 and killed their mother).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("N. Paganini").

      Wien, 1. VII. 1828.. 1½ SS. mit eh. Adresse verso (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to.. Schöner, unbekannter und ausführlicher Brief an seinen Triestiner "amico carissimo" Agostino Samengo (1771-1837?), einen aus Genua stammenden Reeder und Handelsmann, der auch als Musiker dilettierte und Paganini in Triest Unterkunft zu geben pflegte. Der Brief rühmt die Qualität des Graf-Cembalos, das Paganini in Samengos Auftrag von Wien nach Triest schicken ließ, und behandelt Transportmodalitäten und Kosten. Paganini verweist zweimal auf eine Rechnung, die dem Brief offenbar nicht beiliegt. Sehr interessant ist Paganinis Beurteilung der letzten vier Quartette Beethovens, die ihm barock erscheinen: "Mi compiaccio di dirvi che il cembalo di cui mi avete incaricato e che dovveste aver ricevuto essendo stato di qui spedito da qualche tempo al vostro indirizzo riuscito a paver mio e di tutti i Professori miei amici della perfezione che voi bramavate ed e tale che coll' uso si perfezionera ancor piu se e possibile siccome asseriscono i detti Professori e il fabbricatore. - Mi duole di aver male inteso la parola trasporto ed averla equivocata con quella che qui vuol dire soltanto imballaggio. Cosi che voi dovete pagare circa 16 fiorini di piu del convenuto di 500 fiorini che io ho pagato (siccome rilevarete dalla qui unita ricevuta), giacche il fabbricatore non suole assumersi il trasporto che aggiunto costa circa 16 fiorini, ma ne esegui [sce] solo l'imballaggio con tutta la cura che esige il suo istrumento. L'unita ricevuta parla di 512 fiorini, ma non ne pagai che 500 giacche in questa somma stava l'obbligo mio per voi assunto, e per essa aggiunto il cembalo bene imballato fu venduto dal Graf. Nella coda sul piano armonico troverete la mia firma in lapis, e troverete a seconda del vostro desiderio anche il leggio. Quattro dei miei dizatti [?] gli consegnero ad un negoziante vostro amico, di cui non ne recordo il nome, che partira fra giorni per Trieste. - Ieri sera ho dato la tredicesima [...], ed ora conto di riposare trovandomi piu che mai ammalaticcio. - Gli ultimi quartetti di Beethoven de quali ne ho intesi due mi sembrano molto barocchi. Con quiete avro il piacere di trattenermi un poco di piu con voi. - Avete piu eseguito il mio capriccio in Mi? Che fa il bravo Hyel? Salutatelo in mio nome e ricordatemi sensibile a tutti i comuni nostri amici. Le mie dovute congratulazioni all' amabile vostro Ipolito. Favoritemi vostre notizie che mi saranno oltremodo care. Addio amatemi e credetemi [...]". - Spuren mehrfacher Faltung. Kl. Randausriss von Siegelöffnung (minimale Textberührung); verso hs. Empfängernotiz "risposto li 11 Luglio" und etwas späterer Sammlungsstempel "L. Samengo Trieste". - Deutsche Übersetzung auf Anfrage. - Nicht in: R. Grisley (Hg.), N.

        Portraits of Illustrious Personages of the Court of Henry VIII. Engraved in Imitation of the Original Drawings of Hans Holbein in the Collection of His Majesty

      John Chamberlaine, London 1828 - Published in London by John Chamberlaine in 1828, this is the seond edition. The engravings by Bartolozzi were crafted with exquisite skill, and replicate Holbein's originals as near to perfection as one could hope. Folio. An incomplete copy; 47 plates remain of the original 69. ( Each portrait is accompanied by a 1 or 2 page biographical sketch. For a number of the 22 missing plates, the biographical component is absent, as well. While some of those missing are lamentable ( Sir Thomas More, Prince Edward, Philip Melacanthon ) the considerable majority of the most crucial plates are present. There appears little rhyme or reason as to what was is missing. Among those are one of the initial anonymous portraits, The Marchioness of Dorset, John Colet, John Poins, the Lady Ratcliffe, Lady Monteague, Sir Thomas Wyat, Sir George Carew, J. Lord Russell, Lord and Lady Vaux.) Present therefore are Holbein's self portrait, Anne Boleyn, Prince Edward Of Wales, Lord Clinton, Queen Anne of Cleve, Edward VI, Sir Philip and Lady Hobby, Queen Catherine, Thomas, Earl of Surrey, Lord and Lady Rich, Queen Jane Seymour, the Duke and Duchess of Suffolk, etc. A number of the engravings are on a pink tinged paper. A very good copy with some professional restoration; front board reattached, hinges reinforced, repair to the head of the spine ) The binding is one half red morocco - with corners leather as well, and boards marbled to match the endpapers. The front free endpaper has been reattached. While the rear board is quite bright and fresh, the front board is quite worn with an irregular section where the marbling has been rubbed away to display the board underneath. There is some minor edge staining and foxing/spotting to the edges of the plates - not effecting the engravings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ohio Governor's Response to South Carolina Nullification Threat

      Columbus, Ohio 1828 - Printed Letter Signed, for Trimble by S.C. Andrews, private secretary to the Governor of Pennsylvania, Columbus, Ohio, February 12, 1828. "I herewith transmit a copy of the Preamble and Resolutions of the General Assembly of Ohio, in reply to the Resolutions from the Legislature of South Carolina, respecting the Constitutional powers of the General Government." With interior printing of the "Report of the Select Committee.on the Resolutions from the Legislature of the State of South Carolina. The Select Committee, to whom were referred the Resolutions of the Legislature of the State of South Carolina, respecting the Constitutional powers of the General Government of the United States, have had the same under consideration, and recommend the adoption of the following Preamble and Resolutions: Whereas, there have been communicated, by the Governor, copes of certain Resolutions of the Legislature of the State of South Carolina, transmitted by the Executive of that State, to be laid before the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, That to the general propositions contained in the first Resolution, abstracted from definite questions of Constitutional right or power, this General Assembly perceive no grounds of exception. Resolved, That this General Assembly do not concur in the opinion of the Legislature of South Carolina, as expressed in the second, third and fourth Resolutions; and to the doctrines therein contained, this General Assembly express their most solemn dissent. Resolved, That the Governor of this State be requested to transmit copies of the foregoing Preamble and Resolutions, to the Governor of South Carolina, and to the Governors of the several States, with a request that the same be laid before the Legislature of their respective States; and, also, to our Senators and Representatives in Congress, to be by them laid before Congress, for their consideration." Historical BackgroundIn response to the Tariff of 1828, John C. Calhoun maintained that a state "interposition" could block enforcement of a federal law. The South Carolina legislature agreed by passing the Ordinance of Nullification in 1832, threatening to secede if the federal government forced collection of the 1828 tariff duties. President Andrew Jackson asserted the supremacy of the federal government. The U.S. Congress passed a compromise tariff bill reducing the duties but also passed the Force Bill, which authorized federal enforcement of the law. The South Carolina legislature rescinded its ordinance, but the conflict highlighted the danger of nullification.Allen Trimble (1783-1870) was a Federalist politician from Ohio. He served as the 8th and 10th Governor of Ohio.

        Researches in South Africa;

      London: James Duncan,, 1828. illustrating the Civil, Moral, and Religious Condition of the Native Tribes; including Journals of the Author's Travels in the Interior … 2 volumes, octavo (210 × 131 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, green morocco lettering- and numbering-pieces, flat bands with zigzag tooling in gilt, compartments tooled with repeated wavy broken lines in blind, triple fillet in blind to the spine and corner edges, edges sprinkled brown. Engraved frontispiece of Bethelsdorp to volume I together with a folding engraved map of South Africa, lithographed plan as frontispiece to volume II. Just a little rubbed, light browning and occasional foxing, one leaf in volume I a little torn, no loss of text and with an old paper repair to the margins, but overall a very good set. First edition of this important and highly controversial work. "Few books on South African matters have been the subject of such fierce denunciation and bitter criticisms as these volumes" (Mendelssohn). Philip travelled out to South Africa in the service of the London Missionary Society in 1819 and "soon became a most drastic censor of the methods pursued towards the natives by the colonists, and the policy of the colonial Government with regard to native affairs". Publication was greeted with public indignation, the subject being brought before Parliament, and the Landrost, or magistrate of Somerset, William Mackay bringing an action against Philip for libel. The court found against Philip and ordered the payment of £200 of damages together with costs of £900. However, during his sojourn in England Philip "made contact with Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, and convinced him that the struggle for the rights of free Khoi-Khoi people in southern Africa was inseparable from the main emancipation agitation. With this entrée into the world of high politics he was able to persuade the colonial secretary, Sir George Murray, to remove all civil disabilities on 'free persons of colour' at the Cape, and indeed throughout the British empire … On his return to Africa in 1829 Philip was fêted as a hero by the Khoi-Khoi, but vilified by the settlers and officials", the hefty fine resulting from the libel case was "covered by evangelicals in Britain to whom he had become a hero" (ODNB). Armorial bookplates of Somerset Richard Maxwell, 8th Baron Farnham, nephew of the Henry, the 5th Baron and Bishop of Meath, who was active in all manner of Protestant evangelical and missionary organisations in Ireland and abroad, correspondent with many prominent abolitionists including Wilberforce.

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY; OR THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES ENGRAVED AND COLOURED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE.

      New York & Philadelphia: Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, 1828-29. - Three octavo text volumes, plus large folio atlas volume. Text includes 4pp. subscribers' list at rear of third volume. Atlas with seventy-six handcolored engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Text in early 20th-century brown three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt with leather label. Rubbed at extremities. Light toning throughout; light scattered foxing. Atlas in recent dark blue half calf and marbled boards. Minor toning and a few spots of foxing, else very good. Overall, a very good set. The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form. This is the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" - Coues. The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii- cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in FINE BIRD BOOKS that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand-colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson. In the copy under notice, the colors are very fresh: those of the original are faded and in some cases quite disintegrated." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

        Elia. Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature in the London Magazine. First Series [with] Elia. Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature in the London Magazine. Second Series

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, and Carey. 1828. First. First American Editions and the true first complete edition of the second series of essays (the second series wasn't published in England until 1833 as The Last Essays of Elia). Two volumes. 12mos. Linen and original printed glazed papercovered boards with applied paper spine labels. Each volume bears on the front pastedown the bookplate of James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., grandson of the American author. Laid in are an old bookseller's description, and a letter dated in 1916, to Mrs. James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., sending the books along, and discussing some of the bibliographical niceties. Front joint professionally and neatly repaired, and the spine label partly perished on First Series, small stains to the boards, chip to the unprinted front fly in Second Series, still a nice set, in the uncommon original boards, in better condition than one might reasonably expect of these famous, autobiographical essays, and with an interesting association. In 1820 Lamb invented the pseudonym for his first essay, about the work place of his brother, by taking the name of a clerk no longer employed there. The pseudonym stuck, however, and it allowed Lamb to develop a persona with which he examined a variety of subjects with celebrated humor and style. Probably Lamb's best work, though he is also remembered for his children's versions of Shakespeare and Homer which he wrote with his sister Mary (who became his charge after she had a bout of insanity in 1796 and killed their mother). .

        View of New York

      - A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph from the publishing firm of Currier & Ives. This print measures approximately 11"x14.25". Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing/staining and a repair to the margin. Currier and Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. The Old Grist Mill among their most popular imagery were scenes of winter in the country, which resonated strongly, especially with an urban American public that was highly nostalgic for the simpler rural life. Nathaniel Currier began his lithographic career as an apprentice in 1828. By the mid-1830's he had established his own firm on Spruce Street in New York City. In 1857 James Ives became a partner in the flourishing business, which went on to produce over 7,000 lithographs by 1907. Currier & Ives was undoubtedly the most prolific firm of lithographers in America, its output greater than that of all the other firms combined. The remarkable scope of this production was matched by the company's ability to anticipate popular themes and subject matter. Among their many works are lithographs depicting sporting, railroad and rural scenes, marine, and western views, as well as foreign and domestic city views, historical tableaux, and a wide range of sentimental, morally instructive and advertising images. Currier & Ives' broad productivity was accompanied by consistently high standards of printing and hand-coloring, and their ability to draw on original works by many of the finest American genre painters of the times, including -besides Durrie - Fanny Palmer, Louis Maurer, and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait.

        Geographische-statistisch und historische Charte von Arkansas

      im Verlage des geographischen Instituts, Weimar 1828 - The highly important first printed map to focus on Arkansas This map depicts the Arkansas Territory, formed in 1819, as one of the jurisdictions carved out of the massive Louisiana Purchase. It includes all of the lands making up the modern state of Arkansas, as well as the Indian Lands that now form the main portion of Oklahoma. The Indian Lands were not divided from Arkansas Territory until 1828, the same year that this map was printed. The present map is remarkable in that it is the first ever printed map to focus on Arkansas itself. The portrayal of the territory is far more advanced and of a larger scale than that depicted on the map that appeared in Carey & Lea's American Atlas (Philadelphia, 1822) that relegated the depiction of Arkansas to a small lower portion of the map. The present map is also an important document of the early development of Arkansas, showing the fledgling settlements that hug the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers, such as Helena and Little Rock, the future state capitol. The territory features nine named and one unnamed county while the vast Indian Lands to the west are inhabited by the indigenous Choctaw nation and the Cherokee peoples who were exiled there from their native lands in the southern Appalachians. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition.

Argues that D. Miguel is the legitimate King of Portugal, due to the fact that Portuguese law, beginning in 1143 under D. Afonso Henriques, and citing various subsequent precedents, excludes foreigners and females from the throne. As D. Pedro I is Emperor of Brazil, and Brazil is recognized as an independent country in the Treaty of 1825, he cannot claim to be King of Portugal, nor does he have the right to abdicate in favor of his daughter, D. Maria.

      Osterwald Aîné, Paris 1828 - Octave Tassaert (1800-1874) (after), Ducarme (act. early 19th C.) (lithographer). Hand-colored lithograph, 11.75 x 17 inches, image. Dramatic scene of pirates boarding a French corsair, as panicked sailors jump overboard, just before the heroic death of the ship's commander, Ensign Henri Bisson (1796-1827), who blew it up rather than surrender it to the pirates. The sole survivor was Bisson's second in command, the pilot Trementin, who was thrown into the water. Even after being seriously injured, he managed to swim to safety. Corsairs, or privateers, were armed, privately-owned ships authorized to fight or harass ships belonging to enemies of France, on behalf of the French Crown. Bisson was a young marine officer serving with a French corsair fleet charged with patrolling the pirate-infested waters of the Levant when it captured a Greek pirate ship, the Pantayotis, and Bisson was directed to take it to Smyrna, accompanied by another ship, the Magicienne. The two ships were separated in high winds and Bisson was forced to drop anchor on the rocks of the island of Stampalie. After two of the captured pirates escaped, Bisson suspected they would return with others, and told Trémentin that if they were attacked, he planned to sink the ship. His crew was outnumbered, and after a valiant struggle, the wounded Bisson called out to his men, "Save yourselves, jump into the sea!" Turning to Trémentin, he added, "Adieu, pilot, this is the end." Trémentin was ultimately rescued by the Magicienne and was promoted to ensign and awarded the cross of the Legion of Honor. (Nicolas-François) Octave Tassaert was a French painter and lithographer. Tassaert came from a family of artists including his father and grandfather. While still a child, he was put to work as an engraver under the supervision of his brother Paul. He entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1817 to study painting and was tutored there until 1825. Between 1825 and 1849, he drew numerous works for lithographs, focusing on marketable subjects demanded by publishers: historical, genre, military, mythological, allegorical and religious pictures. He also illustrated the novels of French authors such as Hugo, Dumas and Chateaubriand. Eventually he received recognition for his paintings, debuting at the Salon in 1831 and exhibiting the Death of Correggio there in 1834, now in the Hermitage Museum. His greatest renown came as a genre painter of the poor, notably Unhappy Family (1849-50), now in the collection of the Louvre. His paintings are in numerous other museum collections, including Versailles. Ducarme was a lithographer active at the beginning of the 19th century. He is especially known for his portrait prints, some after artists such as Raphael and Titian, and a series of prints after the self-portraits of painters. Caption below title: "L'Enseigne de Vaisseau Bisson, chargé du commandement de la prise du Corsaire Le Panagyote, plutôt que de render le Navire, descend mettre le feu aux poudres. Le pilote Trémentin, second de l'Enseigne Bisson, a sauté avec le vaisseau, mais quoique blessé il s'est sauvé à la nage. Il est de retour à Paris, où il vient d'être nommé Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur." Translation: [Ship's Ensign Bisson, charged with the command of the prize of the corsair Le Panagyote, rather than giving up the vessel, leans over to set fire to the gunpowder. The pilot Trémentin, second in command to Ensign Bisson, went down with the vessel, but although wounded managed to save himself by swimming. He returned to Paris, where he came to be named Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.] Full publication information: A Paris, chez Osterwald aîné, Quai des Augustins, No. 37.
