        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.

      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). .

        A TREATISE OF ZODIACAL PHYSIOGNOMY

      Published By Author and Sold By Longman & Co. 1828 - 100 pp. +9 plates at the rear, bound in dark blue green cloth bdg. with gilt-stamped spine. EXTREMELY RARE copy of the FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this elusive Blake item, described by Gilchrist in 1863 as 'that singular and now very scarce book', and by Michael Rossetti as 'a precious and almost undiscoverable brochure'. This copy has 9 plates, 8 character and one schematic plates, including the 2 Blake plates of the 'Ghost of a Flea', and, according to other descriptions, lacking the original wrappers bound-in, but contains its title page. This missing printed front wrapper, in other known copies, states: 'No. 1 To be completed in four parts', but no more parts appeared, perhaps because Varley was so constantly in debt. His publication had much to do with the contemporary fascination for physiognomy as well as astrology. Besides Blake's figure of the constellation 'Cancer', it includes 'the most curious of all these visionary heads, and the most talked about' (Gilchrist I, p. 254) -- 'the ghost of a flea', seen in two of the plates, with mouth open, and in the other plate, with jaw tightly shut. How Blake came to draw the apparition, and how he reported its explanation of the spirit world to Varley, is famously described on pp. 54-55. Keynes 248: 'extremely rare'; Bentley Blake Books 501. This copy is missing 2 pages from the astrological tables (pp. 21-22-23-24 May 9th to June 28th). (scuffed edges bdg with tiny worn through spots at spine & corners, lightly browned and soiled bdg at spine and edges, paper yellowed at edges, plates have some foxing and some water stains at top corners, otherwise clean and tight copy)Please contact us directly for a full description.

        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.

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.

        Trait Sublime de Courage de L'Enseigne Bisson

      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. Condition: Generally very good with the usual overall light toning, wear, handling, soft creases. Margins a bit short, typical for separately issued prints, still sufficient for framing.
