        EL CIUDADANO ESTEVAN F. AUSTIN, EMPRESARIO, PARA INTRODUCIR EMIGRADOS ESTRANGEROS, EN LAS COLONIAS QUE LE TIENE, DESIGNADAS EL SUPREMO GOBIERNO DEL ESTADO DE COAHUILA Y TEXAS, POR LOS CONTRATOS CELEBRADOS ENTRE EL DICHO GOBIERNO Y EL MISMO AUSTIN.

      [San Felipe de Austin: Printed by G.B. Cotten, 1829]. - Printed document, completed in manuscript. 6 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Signed by Samuel M. Williams. Small tear along old fold (slightly affecting a few letters of printed text). Else very good overall. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare imprint from the San Felipe de Austin press of Godwin Brown Cotten, an original certificate of admission to Austin's colony. "These grants were the foundation of the colonization of Texas" - Streeter. This document reflects one of the four essential steps in the colonization process, being the empresario's certification stating that the immigrant (in this case a widow named Frances Manifee) had been admitted as a member of Austin's colony. The next step would be to present this certificate to the commissioner charged with issuing land titles in the Colony. This document is signed in manuscript by Samuel M. Williams, a close associate of Stephen F. Austin. Streeter refers to a similar form in his collection dated June 2, 1831, also signed by Samuel M. Williams. "For thirteen years Williams was Austin's lieutenant; he wrote deeds, kept records, and directed colonial activities during the empresario's absences" - NEW HANDBOOK OF TEXAS. This is effectively the earliest obtainable Texas imprint, since any earlier ones are only surmised or exist in a few copies in institutions. It is now extremely rare in the marketplace. The only recent sale of a copy was of a much inferior one, with loss on the top margin, which sold at Sotheby's in the Texas Independence Collection sale on June 18, 2004 for $30,000 including house premium.

        The Amaranth; Or, Masonic Garland. Volume 1: 1828-29

      Boston: Charles W. Moore & Edwin Sevey, April, 1828-October, 1829 - A volume comprising a complete run of this important journal, which historian Robert Reid identifies as "the first exclusively Masonic periodical. " Published in the wake of the Morgan affair (reports of which percolate throughout these pages), THE AMARANTH offered "an unfailing source of supply" for freemasons of the day--and for later editors, who cribbed material from it for decades. The editor, Charles Moore, was a writer of no mean accomplishment. He was the founder and editor of THE MASONIC MIRROR, which Albert Mackey identifies as "the first Masonic newspaper ever issued in America, and, perhaps, in the world, " and THE FREEMASON'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE, which he published from 1841 until his death in 1873. The journal contains reportage on many events of interest to the Masonic historian. The frontispiece to the volume is a woodcut of the New York Masonic Hall, the subject of the first article in the first issue. With the contemporary ownership signature of one G. Day. The binding is sound, and the spine intact, but the leather corners are decayed, and the marbling to the covers is worn to peeling at the edges, There are signs of mildewing to the initial pages, some of which are stuck together. Not the most attractive copy, admittedly, but worthy of restoration. At any rate, a complete run of a very rare periodical. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Beschreibung des Festes Der Zauber Der Weissen Rose gegeben in Potsdam am 13 July 1829 zum Geburtstage Ihrer Majestät der Kaiserin von Russland.

      Berlin: Gropius Brothers, [1829]. - 2 Volumes. oblong folio. pp. 1 p.l., [13]. lithographed title, 2 hand-coloured lithographed views on India paper, mounted, 9 hand-coloured lithographed plates on India paper, mounted, 1 hand-coloured lithographed interior view, & 11 (of 12) hand-coloured lithographed views of the procession. original printed bds. with new cloth ties, rebacked (edges rubbed, mounting sheets for the 9 middle plates browned, light soiling & spotting to outer edge of first processional plate). First Edition of this record of the grand celebrations which took place in honour of the birthday of Alexandra Fyodorovna, Empress of Russia (wife of Czar Nicholas I), born Princess Charlotte of Prussia [1798-1860], who was then in Berlin on a visit to her father, King Frederick William III. The theme of the celebrations was the mediaeval legend of 'Blanchefleur' or the White Rose, a nickname given to Alexandra in childhood. Eleven of the fine hand-coloured plates by Ernst Gärtner, Julius Schoppe, Heinrich Stürmer, and Theodor Hosemann depict the procession of the participants in the tournament regaled in full mediaeval costume. Others depict exterior and interior views of the palace, including one showing the ball in the Grotto Hall, and allegorical tableaux of the Seasons, Virtues and other subjects. The two copies that have appeared at auction in the last fifteen years were lacking one of the 9 middle plates. The present copy is unusual in that all of the plates are hand-coloured rather than just the processional plates and the interior view. Lipperheide Sbb31.

        MEMOIRS OF JAMES HARDY VAUX, a swindler and thief; now transported to New South Wales for the second time, and for life. Written by himself. Second edition,

      London: Whittaker Treacher and Arnot 1829 - 12mo, (155x99mm), [3 adverts],[1 blank],xxiv,288p. some very slight and occasional spotting. Original green calico cloth, some slight fading, the backstrip discoloured and with a leather back-label, preserved in a modern custom-made solander box. (Ferguson Bibliography of Australia 1305) A rare edition of what was, in its first edition of 1819, the first Australian autobiography. It recounts the life and wrong-doings of the author and his subsequent life in the convict colony. This so-called second edition, which retains the introduction by Barron Field, appears to be a re-issue of the 1827 edition that had been published in London by Hunt and Clarke and numbered volume 13 in their series of 'autobiographical works that offer a collection of the most instructive and amusing lives ever published.' The advertisements that precede the text of this book, list the volumes in the series and retain Hunt & Clarke's number of 13, as does the series title which precedes the volume title. However, we suspect that between 1827 and 1829 Whittaker, Treacher and Arnot took over the series from Hunt & Clarke and re-issued the volume under their own imprint. Whittaker &c. issued another edition in 1830 with slightly different pagination and re-numbered it as volume 17 of the series. Copac locates no copies of this edition in any UK library, indeed we can locate only two Australian libraries which hold copies. As an added attraction this volume is an early example of a publisher's edition binding in calico cloth, having been published - according to the publisher's advert - in 'a fine library edition at 6 shillings the volume.' Please note that the advised postage is based on an average book, if necessary the postage will be reduced to the correct amount and you will be notified by email.

        Raccolta di varie decorazioni sceniche inventate e dipinte per l'I. R. Teatro alla Scala.

      [Milan, no printer, 1818-1829]. - Oblong folio (485 x 405 mm). T. p. and 62 engr., hand-coloured etchings by A. Sanquirico (all on paper with watermark "J. Whatman, Turkey Mill"); tissue guards (watermark "FB") preserved throughout. Contemp. green boards with elaborate gilt neo-classical decoration. In same-coloured original slipcase. First edition of Sanquirico's synoptic collection of his work, complete in 62 plates, never sold in the regular book trade and presented by the artist only to highest dignitaries. "La grandiosa collezione del Sanquirico, in fogli di grande formato, stampati e colorati con estrema cura, era evidentemente destinata a clienti 'facoltosi'" (Ferrero). In 1818 Sanquirico set out to publish all the theatre decorations he had executed. The inked and coloured series of etchings was completed in 1829. Sanquirico is considered the best stage designer of his time. From 1817 to 1832 he was "scenografico unico" at the Milano "Scala", where he was much admired for his inexhaustible production of new creations. "He is a master of perspective, and a painter of the finest taste; capable of creating magical effects through colour and light. Every one of his decorations is possessed of a unique magic and rich versatility of invention. There was not an opera in which Sanquirico, apart from the celebrated singers, did not also celebrate his triumph" (Nagler). "La sua attività coincise con uno dei periodi più interessante della lirica italiana, quando ai nomi ormai famosi di Mayr, Mozart e Meyerbeer si alternavano quelli di Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti e Pacini, e il balletto italiano trovava la sua nova espressione nelle pantomime eroiche" (Enc. dello Spettacolo). For this present album, Sanquirico used the best paper available, the strong velin made by the Turkey Mill on which James Audubon also printed his 'Birds of America' (cf. Bannon/Clark, Handbook of Audubon Prints, 35). The colouring is masterfully executed, showing exceptional brilliance. Hundreds of fine hues - in the tropical flora, in the precious costumes of the exotic peoples, in the luminescent pink clouds over the evening landscapes - lend these scenes a unique beauty and atmospheric splendour. - Immaculate, entirely spotless copy in the original boards as issued. Merely the matching slipcase shows traces of restoration, otherwise entirely untouched. - Removed from the library of the Dukes of Bavaria at Tegernsee castle. Wurzbach XXVIII, 196. Nagler XVI, 135.

        MISSISSIPPI KITE.

      London. . 1829 - Double elephant folio print, framed. Near fine condition. Audubon's depiction of the Mississippi Kite appeared in 1829 as plate 117 in THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. This plate aroused considerable debate at the time, because many natural historians were quick to note the similarity between the lower of the two birds shown and the rendering of the same species in Alexander Wilson's AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY, issued in 1809. Audubon was detested by Wilson's loyalists in the Philadelphia scientific establishment of the day. Lead by George Ord, who had completed Wilson's work after his death, they felt that Audubon over- romanticized his work and had no scientific ability. They seized on this obvious cribbing from Wilson as another example of Audubon's perfidy. Indeed, it is difficult to understand why Audubon found it necessary to lift a bird portrait from Wilson, so vastly his inferior as an artist. The other kite shown provides a magnificent contrast, demonstrating how extraordinary Audubon's talents were.

        The New Protestant Sovereign Safely Coach Wot's about to Start from the New Castle Windsor, on Improved Principles; the Late on being found Crazy.

      S. W. Fores, 41 Piccadilly,, London: 1829 - A political caricature with Western Australian associations. The cartoon illustrates a whispering campaign against Wellington in the summer and autumn which led him to take legal action, when there was talk of the government breaking up. Eldon drives the coach in which George IV is the passenger. Eldon's opposition to the Catholic Relief Bill gathers momentum as Wellington's 'Emancipation Carrier', portrayed as a two-wheeled cart, crashes. The two men dumped from the cart are Wellington & Robert Peel. Amongst the papers scattered about the two men are "Swan River grants to Relatives". Peel attracted a certain amount of political heat for granting his cousin Thomas Peel extensive tracts of land in the new Swan River Colony, later Western Australia. BM:15809. Copper engraving with period hand color. 14 3/4 x 9 1/2" (platemark) with margins. Margins a little dusty otherwise very good condition.

        Big trees, 1903

      - Thomas Hill (1829-1908) Big trees, 1903 Signed and dated lower right: “T. Hill/1903” Oil on canvas Canvas size: 46 ¼” x 30” Framed size: 55” x 38 ¾” Provenance: Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin to Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin was the granddaughter of Michael Henry de Young, founder of the San Francisco Chronicle and benefactor of the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum. Thomas Hill was born in Birmingham, England on September 11, 1829. After immigrating to the United States in 1844, Hill settled with his family in Taunton, Massachusetts. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under the tutelage of Peter F. Rothermel. Hill painted in Massachusetts throughout the 1850’s, often in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with a group of artists that included Asher B. Durand, George Inness, Benjamin Champney, Albert Bierstadt, Virgil Williams and his brother Edward Hill. For health reasons he was forced to seek a milder climate and, with wife and children, made the overland trek to California in 1861. After settling in San Francisco, Hill advertised himself as a portrait painter. In 1862 Hill made his first trip to Yosemite accompanied by the artists William Keith and Virgil Williams. In 1866 Hill exhibited his Yosemite scenes at the National Academy, and later that year, traveled to Paris where he was a pupil of Paul Meyerheim and exhibited at the Universal Expo. Returning to the United States, Hill stayed in Boston from 1868 to 1970, but returned to San Francisco in 1871. He hit his artistic stride in California during the 1870s, beginning with his first grandiose painting, The Yosemite Valley, which was published as a chromolithograph by Prang. With Frederic Whymper, Hill was a founding member of the San Francisco Art Association, and in 1873, he became a member of the Bohemian Club, a men’s organization dedicated to cultural enhancement. Hill built a studio in Yosemite in 1883, which would become his main residence for rest of his life (his wife maintained the family home in Oakland). During the winter months Hill resided in San Francisco where he maintained a studio in the Flood Building. When Virgil Williams died in 1886, Hill became interim director of the School of Design until a new director could be found. During the 1870s and 1880s, Hill’s work was in demand and brought very high prices; however, during the later part of his life his work did not command the interest that it once had due to changing art styles. Like Bierstadt, his panoramic landscapes were considered old-fashioned and for half a century or more his work was in eclipse. Today his work has regained its proper stature and he is considered a giant in American art. His work can currently be viewed in the collections of the de Young museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Oakland Museum of California and the White House, among many other collections. The trees illustrated in Thomas Hill’s “Big Tress, 1903” are giant Sequioas in the Mariposa Grove near Wawaona, in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park . Mariposa Grove was first visited by non-natives in 1857, when found by Galen Clark and Milton Mann. The grove contains about 500 mature giant Sequoias, some dating to over 2000 years old. The “Wawona Tunnel Tree,” as illustrated in Hill’s painting, had a tunnel cut through it in 1881 to allow horse-drawn carriages and eventually automobiles to pass through it. Since falling in 1969, this tree has since been called the “Fallen Tunnel Tree”. The tree in the foreground of the painting is called the Vermont Tree. These trees, along with the others in the Mariposa Grove, have been tourist attractions since the late 19th century and continue to be so today.

        A General Dictionary of Painters [containing Memoirs of the Lives and Works of the Most Eminent Professors of the Art of Painting]

      London, 1829. 2 volumes, octavo, with 25 engravings including two frontispieces, handsomely bound in full contemporary green straight-grain morocco, spines ornately gilt with raised bands, boards embossed and decorated in gilt, dentelles, very good; some offsetting to plates, all edges gilt. A particularly attractive copy of the 1829 New Edition of Pilkington's standard reference work, revised with introduction and new additions by Alan Cunningham. Matthew Pilkington (1701-1784) was a church minister and poet who studied at Trinity College. His poetry caught the eye of Jonathan Swift he was appointed chaplain to John Barber, the Mayor of London. In mid 1750, after his public and dramatic divorce, Pilkington began a relationship with the family of Charles Cobbe, advising them in their acquisitions for their collection for their Newbridge Estate. It was in 1770 that Pilkington published The Gentleman's and Connoisseur's Dictionary of Painters. The first of its kind in England, the work contained biographies of Artists and a study of the art market in England and the Netherlands. Pilkington's work was used as a standard reference for most of the nineteenth century until the appearance of Byran's Dictionary of Painters and Engravers (1816), which is known to have used Pilkington as a foundation. The set includes around 1400 entries, with a particular focus on Italian painters which reflects their popularity at the time. There are also entries for artists well known to Pacific exploration and colonial history such as John Webber and John Clevely.

        German Folk Art Manuscript Breviary

      1829. A breviary, or devotional book, done entirely by hand, filled with simple, or naive, vignettes exemplifying the folk art traditions of rural Germany -- also known as "Fraktur" -- in the early nineteenth century. The cursive script is done by a steady, painstakingly meticulous hand, and thus attains the fluidity and regularity of calligraphy, although the shape of some letters is unlike more modern script and thus reading the text will be a challenge to many readers nowadays. The artlessness of the art is much of the appeal, but one would be wrong to think of the author/compiler as a mere bumpkin. The mere act of composing such a prayer aid would distinguish him from most of the population at a time when illiteracy was still rife. He also paginated his manuscript. There are 102 pages, each a compact 14 by 9 cm, or 5.5 by 3.5 inches. The manuscript ends with a most charming touch -- a flap that one pulls away from a wreath, and a cameo portrait, possibly of the author, above. The flap appears to have the author's name, Anton, and a surname which oddly can not be made out because the letters are alien to us.
