      Philadelphia: A. Finley, [ca. 1830]. Folding pocket map engraved by Young & Delleker, full contemporary hand-colouring. Folds into publisher's roan covers, covers bordered in blind, upper cover titled in gilt, publisher's ad on the inside front pastedown. (Minor separations at intersecting folds as usual). 8 3/4 x 11 3/8 inches. Rare separately-issued Finley pocket map of Tennessee. Following the initial publications of both his New General Atlas and New American Atlas, Finley issued pocket map versions of many of his maps from those important early American atlases. This map of Tennessee appears to be printed from the same plate as his map of Tennessee which appeared in Finley's New General Atlas of 1831, with the addition of rivers and place names to the neighboring states not found in early editions of the New General Atlas, The map was certainly issued before 1835, as neither Benton nor Lauderdale counties appear on the map. Although diminutive in size, the map still shows good detail, including principal towns, roads, and rivers, and with each county identified. In the southeast corner of the state, a large area of Cherokee lands is depicted. Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or Rumsey.

        The Ford?s Theater Owner Discusses The Entertainment Business: ?I Will Certainly Press Her Engagement With Great Vigor And Endeavor Successfully To Make Her A Permanent Star Favorite In The Two Cities?

      ALS. 2pg. 5 ¼? x 8?. Sunday. No Place. A rare autograph letter signed ?J.T. Ford? to Mr. Wright, discussing theater business: ?Your anticipated and promised letter did not arrive. Respecting Mrs. Bowers? engagement, I will give her the terms for time in January and Feb. which will be in the least profitable part of the Season. I will certainly press her engagement with great vigor and endeavor successfully to make her a permanent Star favorite in the two cities. With this much understood leave from her if she accepts my offer I will locate the precise day of the commencement in reply after I hear positively from her. Mr. Tayleune has written a most admirable new version of East Lyme and is now engaged on some other dramatizations which I think will be very popular. Mrs. B. have them to read at an early period. Write me immediately.? It is likely this was written to John B. Wright, the stage manager at the Ford Theater when Lincoln was shot. Ford was discussing an appearance by Elizabeth Crocker Bowers (1830-1895), a popular American actress in the mid-Nineteenth Century. Other than a paper clip impression on the top margin, the letter is in fine condition and has a bold signature in black ink.

        Rural Rides in the Counties of Surrey, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Somersetshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Hertfordshire:

      London: William Cobbett,, 1830. With Economical and Political Observations relative to matters applicable to, and illustrated by, the State of those Counties respectively. Octavo (186 × 110 mm). Original grey boards, sympathetically rebacked in cloth, printed paper spine label. Boards lightly rubbed, inner hinges strengthened. A very nice copy. First edition of this masterpiece of description and political journalism, deservedly the best known of Cobbett's works. The Rural Rides were originally a series of letters which began in the Political Register, the weekly periodical Cobbett established in 1802 and conducted until his death in 1835. Cobbett wanted to maintain Britain's original state of agrarian equilibrium and his influence was wide: "[he] offered no plan, but owed his popularity to his stinging pen and trenchant criticism. He was an ardent agrarian reformer, a burning opponent of industrialism, a keen social critic and a writer of the best prose in the English language" (see Gregg, A Social and Economic history of Britain, p. 281).

        Autograph letter signed to The Governor Chief Factors & Chief Traders Northern Department

      Norway House [Nelson River, Manitoba, Canada]: 5 January 1830. 2pp. Legal folio. Hudson's Bay Company factor's detailed description of the fur trapping trade in northwestern Canada. John MacLeod was an important figure in the early development of the Hudson's Bay Company in the Canadian Northwest. He was chief factor at Norway House in central Manitoba, a key central location between Hudson's Bay and Lake Winnipeg. In this interesting letter he discusses arrangement for the next trapping season in northern Manitoba: "The Periodical packets from York Factory and Red River having again met here affords me an opportunity of addressing you a few lines respecting the men intended for Portage Laloche next spring ... there are no steersmen wintering and but very few middlemen, Isham who used to go in the capacity of a Steersman is Lame, and as for the Indians hired for that trip last Summer, one of them is wintering in MacKenzie's River, another is at Moose Lake, and a third says he will not go again in consequence of ill treatment he received from some of the men of that Brigade last summer particularly from one Laverdure ... The men wintering here are as follows, 2 Canadian voyagers, 2 orkey men, The Carpenter, Blacksmith, and summer men. The men sent to winter here having arrived so late on the Season, I had to keep all hands Collecting Boats timbers until the Ground was frozen. I however trust the six boats I am directed to get Built here will be Completed by the opening of the navigation. Our Fall fishery was not so productive as usual owing partly to the ice having set in 20 days earlier than I have seen since I came to Norway House. So we must again have recourse to the little winipic. Having the most of the wood required for 6 Boats to haul from 2, 3 & 4 miles Distance I am under the necessity of Keeping a few Dogs about the place for that purpose. As to the trade I have no reason to think it will be less than usual, the period when the Indians at a Distance used to come in has not yet arrived, Some of them are wintering at the Grand Rapit and Moose Lake. Our Stock of provisions now in hand is as follows, viz 90 Large Bags of Pemican, 17 Small [bags], 41 Bags Greas, 12 Kegs flour. I have only to [add] that a few Canoe Cedar timbers and Splinters will be required as in Spring." See the lengthy biography on McLeod in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography.

        Jemte en sann roman, till lexa för andra.

      Stockholm, L. J. Hjerta, 1830. 8:o. (4),+ 79 s. Sammanbunden med: (GUSTAV IV ADOLF.) Betraktelser öfver mina första krigsbedrifter. Af G. A. Gustafsson. Öfversättning. Stockholm, Johan Imnelius, 1820. 8:o. 40 s. Liten fläck på s. 33-34. Sammanbunden med: (MASSON, Charles François Philibert.) Anecdoter rörande f.d. konungens vistande i Petersburg år 1796, och hans felslagna förmälning med storfurstinnan Alexandra, skrifna år 1800. Öfversättning från franskan. Stockholm, Marquardska tryckeriet, 1809. 8:o. 32 s. Obetydliga småfläckar. Samtida hfrbd med blind- och gulddekorerad rygg samt röd respektive grön titeletikett och grönstänkta snitt. Titeletiketterna nötta. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3676, 3741 respektive 3707. Angående det första arbetet har någon antecknat på försättsbladet: "Denna bok, som vill synas hänsyfta på Gustaf IV Adolf, är i grund och botten ej något annant än en simpel bokförläggare-spekulation, som har Lasse Hierta till pappa. - Öfversatt från något främmande språk är den ej och aldra minst författad af G. IV A., utan af en af Hiertas hejdukar." Att den är skriven av Gustav IV Adolf verkar dock ingen numera tvivla på, Setterwall anger att det är en översättning, först publicerad på franska i Leipzig 1829. Första delen av boken är Gustav IV Adolfs tunt förklädda minnesteckning över sin uppväxt och regeringsår. Den avsatte kungen ventilerar sin bitterhet: "sådan blef belöningen för alla mina uppoffringar, min qväfda längtan och mina sorger. Hvartill gagnade min philosophie? Jag tröstar mig genom öfvertygelsen att hafva gjort allt för att uppfylla mina åligganden, och att menniskornas obeständighet vållat det som öfvergått mig". Bokens andra del "Sann roman eller En lexa för andra" är en naiv och idealistisk skildring av Gustav Adolfs förälskelse i en prostituerad kvinna i Aachen, som han försöker förmå sluta med sitt värv och istället bli hans älskarinna. Hon visar sig dock vara trolös. Ytterligare ett bevis för Gustav Adolfs hårda öde, att bli sviken av dem som är skyldiga honom trohet och tacksamhet.Det tredje arbetet är en översättning ur första delen av Massons "Mémoires secrets sur la Russie", som utkom i Paris år 1800, och handlar om kronprins Gustav Adolfs giftermålsplaner

        Zelinda; A Persian Tale

      Whittaker, Treacher & Co., London 1830 - Bound in full contemporary wavy grain calf with bold gilt vine and blossom pattern on both covers and spine, beautiful crimson wavy silk endsheets. Inscribed by the author to his son, William Badnall. A fascinating and vanishingly scarce book of poetry by Richard Badnall, silk, ribbon and button tycoon of the early 1800's in Leek, Staffordshire and a man whose riches to rags story could make an entertaining if not sad novel. Through bad investments, he lost his fortune and nearly landed in debtor's prison. Somehow, during this time he seemed to be able to write poetry, and this volume was received with some praise, though acclaim never landed Badnall reputation, much less remuneration from his writings. He also wrote a treatise on Silk Trade (1828), a book on politics (183) and another on Railroad Improvement (1833), all exceedingly rare. Besides our copy of Zelinda, no copies of any of these books were found at the time of research. Laid in is a handwritten memo from the Society of Geneaogist of London, from Howard H. Cotterell, explaining some details of Badnall's lineage and also citing some of his works mentioned here. Bookplate of Russell markland. Some rubbing to calf. Book is near fine internally.

        Autograph Letter Signed "J. S. Buckingham" to 'J. Upcott Esq' (English librarian and antiquary William Upcott) regarding his lectures at the Library of the London Institution].

      1830 - 12 February 1830. On a folded Octavo leaf (ca. 21x12,5 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on aged paper. Text complete and legible, addressed on verso of the second leaf. Traces of the old mount and minor holes on the last page, caused by removal of the letter from a stub, otherwise a very good letter. Autograph signed letter by James Silk Buckingham, a noted British traveller, journalist and politician (MP in 1832-37), author of "Travels in Palestine" (London, 1821) and "Travels among the Arab Tribes Inhabiting the Countries East of Syria and Palestine" (London, 1825). The letter obviously relates to the twelve lectures on "the Countries of the Eastern World" given by Buckingham in 1830 in the Library of the London Institution [for the advancement of Literature and the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge] (see: A Catalogue of the Library of the London Institution. London, 1835, vol. 1, p. Xi). Addressing William Upcott (1779-1845), a sub-librarian in the London Institution at the time, Buckingham is sending him the paragraphs, which he would 'be glad to have written out in some other hand than my own if it were possible'. He will be 'infinitely obliged to the kindness of Mrs. Phillipps if she can procure their insertion in any of the Papers'. In a long postscript covering the whole of the second page Buckingham invites Upcott and Mrs Phillipps 'to attend the Public Lectures on the Indian Question' which he is giving. He is sending half a dozen tickets 'as a very poor return for your great civility.'

      London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1830 First edition. Nineteenth-century half red morocco over decorative boards, gilt spine. . Three volumes in one, large twelvemo. Some rubbing and a few scuffs to binding extremities. A very good copy of a scarce set.

It is dedicated to the future Victoria, then a child of eleven, and with the death of her uncle George IV and the accession of his brother William Duke of Clarence, the presumptive heir to the British throne.

Binding with a bit of wear and staining, bumped corners and slightly worn extremities. Inside with a bit of foxing. Name on the inner cover (Dorph).. Inscribed by P.O. Brønsted: 'Til min kjær Ven og Frænde Holger Aagard / Paris den 1ste Juli 1830 / Brøndsted'.** First edition of the second part. Pioneering work on Greece with focus on archaeological aspects by the Danish archaeologist Peter Oluf Brøndsted (1780-1842), who travelled and worked in Greece (then still under Osmannic occupation) from 1810 to 1813. He participated in excarvations in Athens and elsewhere in the country. It took him more than a decade to get the first volumes of his account published, but he succeeded in getting it out in both a German and a French version - in a worthy, state-of-the art bibliophile publication. Lack of fundings caused the magnificent work - planned in eight volumes - to remain a torso. Only a second volume was published in 1830. Brøndsted is thus considered a pioneer in modern classical archaeology, where the field work is considered a precondition for theoretical studies

        Polynesian Researches

      London,, 1830.. Two volumes, octavo, with portrait of Pomare, two folding maps, seven engraved plates and 16 wood engravings; frontispiece and title of the second volume a little stained, otherwise in fine condition internally; uncut in the original blue-grey boards, plain linen spines (numbered by hand) worn, small splits to joints. Second edition: one of the most important works on the history and ethnology of the Society Islands, by one of the most perceptive of the missionary travellers in the Pacific. This is 'une des sources les plus abondantes pour l'histoire de l'ancien Tahiti...' (O'Reilly-Reitman).The work begins with Ellis' account of his voyage in which he visited Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, and New Zealand. He was in Tahiti from 1816 to 1822, during which time very little seems to have escaped his notice. A very popular and influential work, its publication 'went far to redeem the character of missionaries in the eyes of those who had thought of them as ignorant and narrow minded men' (Hill).After his time in Tahiti Ellis went on to Hawaii; he published his works on both islands once he was back in England.Hill, p. 96; Judd, 61 (later edition); not in Ferguson; O'Reilly-Reitman, 7556.

        The Ford?s Theater Owner Discusses The Entertainment Business: ?I Will Certainly Press Her Engagement With Great Vigor And Endeavor Successfully To Make Her A Permanent Star Favorite In The Two Cities?

      ALS. 2pg. 5 ¼? x 8?. Sunday. No Place. A rare autograph letter signed ?J.T. Ford? to Mr. Wright, discussing theater business: ?Your anticipated and promised letter did not arrive. Respecting Mrs. Bowers? engagement, I will give her the terms for time in January and Feb. which will be in the least profitable part of the Season. I will certainly press her engagement with great vigor and endeavor successfully to make her a permanent Star favorite in the two cities. With this much understood leave from her if she accepts my offer I will locate the precise day of the commencement in reply after I hear positively from her. Mr. Tayleune has written a most admirable new version of East Lyme and is now engaged on some other dramatizations which I think will be very popular. Mrs. B. have them to read at an early period. Write me immediately.â? It is likely this was written to John B. Wright, the stage manager at the Ford Theater when Lincoln was shot. Ford was discussing an appearance by Elizabeth Crocker Bowers (1830-1895), a popular American actress in the mid-Nineteenth Century. Other than a paper clip impression on the top margin, the letter is in fine condition and has a bold signature in black ink.

        The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports: Volume I

      Philadelphia: J. & T. Doughty, 1830. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. First edition. Volume I. 4to. vii,[1],298,[2];pp., plus 24 hand-colored lithographic plates, and uncolored engraved portrait of Charles Willson Peale. Engraved title page. Contemporary calf boards, rebacked to style in matching leather, and with the original spine laid-in. Text is brown and spotted, the plates less so with very good coloring. Several pages have been expertly remargined at the fore edge (no loss) else this is a very good copy. Gift inscription on the front free endpaper dated 1832. Very rare and among the first American books to be illustrated with lithographic plates. The Cabinet of Natural History was started by brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 However, despite its relatively short life, it left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America," the text includes firsthand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are among the earliest of their kind. The plates include the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by one of the great names in 19th-century American art. The first volume (made up of twelve parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas. "Artistically, Vol. 1 is much the most important, for it contains the original plates by Thos. Doughty, famous painter and founding father of the Hudson River School" - Bennett. Indeed the plates in the later volumes are from a multitude of hands and sources. "The coloured plates are important - being the first coloured sporting prints made in America. There is only one earlier American book with coloured plates that I know of, and that is a treatise on Medical Botany - published in Philadelphia in 1817. Many of these coloured plates of animals and birds are charming, the colouring is soft, correct as to details, and all are well drawn" - Gee.

        A New General Atlas, comprising a complete set of maps, representing the grand divisions of the globe... compiled from the best authorities, and corrected by the most recent discoveries

      Philadelphia: Anthony Finley, 1830. Imperial quarto. (13 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches). Engraved title, engraved index leaf, letterpress General statistical table, 60 hand-coloured engraved maps (2 double-page), 2 hand- coloured engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, original green-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in six compartments, divided by horizontal gilt fillets and blind-tooled decorative roll, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, Finley's small format letterpress trade label (2 1/16 x 3 3/8 inches) mounted on front pastedown. An important atlas from one of the greatest American map publishers of the first half of the 19th century. A contemporary review of the 1824 first edition of this work is equally applicable to the present edition: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent [30 in the present edition], and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" (North American Review, July 1824, pp.261-262) Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work "but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers" (Ristow, p.268). Phillips Atlases 755; cf. Ristow p.268; cf. Rumsey 285 (1831 edition, with 'Atlas Classica' bound in)

        [Fox Hunting] Unkeneling Plate 1; Breaking Cover Plate 2; In Full Cry Plate 3; The Death Plate 4

      [London: circa 1830]. Aquatints, coloured by hand. 6 x 7 3/4 inches approx. 8 x 10 inches approx. 13 1/2 x 15 1/8 inches. A fine complete series of four anonymous prints of hunting scenes, possibly after the Alkens. The style and naming of these prints suggests an Alken origin for the series. Siltzer records a number of series by the Alken family in which the first plate is titled "Unkennelling." This title appears to be unique to them and supports the supposition that the present series are after the Alkens. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J. T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s...To many, sporting art is "Alken," and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary." (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints, pp. 75-76) Cf. Siltzer pp.57-76
