Altho' possessing a valuable sea coast, and a fertile soil; enriched with large forests; blest with a salubrious climate; and inhabited by British subjects; it has been almost universally represented, as a country covered with swamps, enveloped in fogs, as cold as the arctic circle, and peopled by savages. This inverted description reminds me of Basil Hall's satire on the hydrography of the Chinese seas. "I thought it the safer way," says the Captain, "to trust to lead, latitude, and look out; and shut up my maps and charts altogether, for according to them, I found myself sailing across mighty forests; scudding under bare poles in the interior of China; and creeping over shoals, in places where I could find no bottom." - pp.57-58.

        Fac Simile of an Indian Painting

      Paris 1832 - Karl Bodmer; From Travels in the Interior of North America; Paris, 1832-1843 Hand-colored aquatint engravings; paper size approximately 17 1/2” x 22 1/2”; 35” x 28 1/2” framed Karl Bodmer was a little-known Swiss painter when he was chosen by Prince Maximilian of Prussia to accompany his voyage to America, in order to document in pictorial terms the expedition. With the rest of Maximilian’s company, the two traveled among the Plains Indians from 1832 to 1834, a time when the Plains and the Rockies were still virtually unknown. They arrived in the West before acculturation had begun to change the lives of the Indians, and Bodmer, who was a protegé of the great naturalist von Humbolt, brought a trained ethnologist’s eye to the task. The Bodmer/Maximilian collaboration produced a record of their expedition that is incontestably the finest early graphic study of the Plains tribes. Maximilian and Bodmer journeyed from St. Louis up the Missouri River on the American Fur Company steamboat “Yellowstone,” stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, “Assiniboin,” to Fort Union, where they met the Crees and Assiniboins. The expedition spent its first winter at Fort Clark, where the Mandans in particular excited Bodmer’s attention, although he was also to draw the Minatarri and Crow peoples. The explorers continued by keelboat to Fort Mackenzie, which proved to be the westernmost point of their journey. After living among and studying the Blackfeet for several weeks, Maximilian decided that it was too dangerous to continue, so the travelers returned southward, reaching St. Louis in May 1834. After the conclusion of the journey, Bodmer spent four years in Paris supervising the production of the aquatints made from his drawings. These prints rank with the finest Western art in any medium, and they are the most complete record of the Plains Indians before the epidemics of the mid-19th century had decimated their numbers, and before the white man’s expansion had taken their lands. In contrast to other artist-explorers of the 19th century, such as George Catlin, Bodmer was well-trained in the classic European tradition. The work that he did in America is considered to be the high point of a distinguished career. Perhaps more significant, the plates made from Bodmer's sketches were the first truly accurate images of the Plains Indians to reach the general public. Because the 1837 smallpox epidemic killed more than half the Blackfeet and almost all the Mandans, Bodmer’s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian’s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and beautiful records of the landscape of the American West as it appeared when Bodmer saw it, just before westward expansion took hold and began the indelible transformation of the frontier.

        I have a Notion that you should always "Look before you leap"

      London 1832 - Henry Alken (1785-1851) Notions series London: 1832 Hand-colored aquatint engraving 16 ½" x 19 ½" framed Henry Thomas Alken was born into a family of successful artists. His father, Samuel Alken, was one of the most prolific and acclaimed British sporting artists of his days. Samuel was responsible for the early art instruction that set his son, Henry, on a path towards even greater recognition than his own. Henry received his training not just from his father, but also from the miniature painter J. T. Beaumont (1774-1851), an experience that endowed him with an accomplished graphic precision. He applied this skill to his flippant and anecdotal early paintings, etchings and watercolors of hunting, coaching, racing and other animal subjects. He was also employed by sporting periodicals as an illustrator, and provided plates for the National Sports of Great Britain (London, 1821), strengthening the market for his work in sporting circles, in particular the notorious clique of wealthy and reckless huntsmen who gathered at Melton Mowbray, Leics. In this series on engravings, entitled Notions, Henry Alken presents the comic side of riding. The scenes depict the follies of aristocrats on their weekend sporting outings. At the time these engravings were published, caricature prints mocking the British aristocracy were very popular.

His first work, published in 1831, the "Kizzur Talmud Yerushalmi V'Talmud Babli" was a translation of sections of both the Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds. This was the beginning of his larger project to produce a translation of the entire Talmud. Pinner's work took him to libraries across Eastern Europe. He even secured the aid of the anti-Jewish Czar Nicholas I and dedicated the translation to him. Only the first of the proposed 28 volumes was ever published. Besides for securing sponsorships from royalty across European, Pinner gained letters of approbation from several rabbis, none of whom lived in Russia. This was down apparently through some trickery on Pinner's part. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed by Charles Kyte, Agent in Guiana, to Henry Beard in London, Sending the Accounts for his Cotton Estate, and Deploring the Behaviour of the Slaves "in Consequence of the New Law"].

      New Amsterdam, Berbice (British Guiana) 1832 - New Amsterdam, Berbice [British Guiana], 17 February 1832. Folio (ca. 30x18,5 cm). 2 pp., with an integral leaf of the related accounting. Addressed, sealed and with postal stamps on verso of the first leaf (including the Deal Ship Letter marking). Fold marks, minor hole on the margin after opening, affecting one word, otherwise a very good manuscript. Interesting early letter from the colony of British Guiana which had been consolidated in its current state (from the colonies of Berbice, Essequibo and Demerara) just a year before, in 1831. Written by Charles Kyte, apparently a local planter, the letter is addressed to an ex-governor of the Berbice colony Henry Beard (1821-1825 and 1826-1831) and vividly describes the local effects of the movement for the abolition of slavery: "I have been obliged to visit the West Coast since I wrote you, the slaves [on] Mr Blair's Estates and at Golden Grove having shewn very strong symptoms of insubordination, in consequence of the New Law, which coming to them without the intervention of the Colonial Government, has had[?] only the most mischievous effect; as they think it sets them beyond the authority of their Masters: they give three cheers for King William whenever the Flag is hoisted & the Horn blows for Breakfast & dinner, and are much disposed to make the extra leisure which the Law gives them as the reason for doing nothing, or the next thing to it. the women on Mr. Blair's Estates absolutely refused to clean more Cotton than 15th per day instead of 40 as I insist upon, or, as they frequently have done & can easily do, 60th! I have been very firm & determined with both Gangs." Kyte, most likely refers to the consolidated slave ordinance, published by the government of the British Guiana in January 1832. "It provided, as we have seen, for the still greater amelioration in the condition of the slave, reducing the period of labour to nine hours; and for children under four years of age and pregnant women to six hours; it increased the allowances; and reduced the extent of punishment to fifteen lashes" (Dalton, H.G. The History of British Guiana: in 2 vols. Vol. 1. London, 1855, p. 387). Slavery in British Guiana was abolished with the enforcement of the famous Slavery Abolition Act of 1833.

        The Memorial and Justification of Mr. Barton ... [bound with] The Affairs of the Australian Agricultural Company

      Cornhill [and] London: Pelham Richardson, 1832 &, 1833. Two works bound in one, octavo; the first 73 pp. with folding table; the second 33 pp.; very good in recent tan half calf. Two works on the Australian Agricultural Company. Two very scarce works relating to the scandals that engulfed the Australian Agricultural Company, both written by the Company's agent William Barton, father of Sir Edmund Barton, the first Prime Minister of Australia. The Australian Agricultural Company was founded in London in 1824. On the advice of Commissioner Bigge settlers with capital were encouraged to take up land in Australia and members of the Macarthur family were actively involved in the establishment of the Company. Having taken up a vast land grant in Port Stephens in early 1826 and despite huge support and investment, the Company initially struggled. During this period a quarrel between Barton, appointed as accountant in 1824, and the manager Sir William Parry, led to Barton's resignation. The first book, therefore, is literally Barton's "memorial and justification", and of great interest for the correspondence that is printed, especially that of Barton himself and also Sir William Parry's. Barton's detailed publication is one of the more significant early works relating to Port Stephens and the Company generally. The second book, published the following year, was also an integral part of the public defence and remuneration claim of Barton against the Company. Barton published this text of the company's accounts 'incontestably to prove that it is not attributable to my conduct' that the reports from New South Wales were so brief and unpromising. He also appends letters from key figures in the Company, notably one from John Macarthur who, amidst complaints of shattered health, asserts 'The Grant, with a very slight exception, is a barren waste.' Ferguson initially listed only the Mitchell Library copies of both of these works, but by the time he printed the Addenda volume was able to record one additional copy of the Memorial and Justification (his own) and three of the Affairs.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Basil Hall") to "My Dear Madam."

      Slough [England], March 23, 1832. - 1 page, 8vo., (7 ¼ x 4 ½ inches) with red wax seal affixing a few strands of Sir Walter Scott's hair, dated 1831 (original horizontal folds, mounted on heavier cardstock). A charming letter from Captain Basil Hall, the British naval officer, traveller, and author best known for his "Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea and the Great Loo-Choo Island in the Japan Sea" (1818), which was one of the first descriptions of Korea by a European. Hall is also known for his "Travels in North America in 1827-28" (1829), whose observations sparked an angry response from American readers. In this letter he offers his autograph to a lady he met at a party, along with the proposition of a trade: he offers some of Sir Walter Scott's (1771-1832) hair for that of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792): "It is probable that you possess some of Sir Joshua's hair & I shall be happy to make an exchange with you. At all events I send you a couple of hairs cut from Sir Walter Scott's head, which may possess a value in your eyes & help as wings to support and enhance the value of this autograph." Reynolds was an influential eighteenth-century English painter, and appears to be related in some way to the recipient of this letter: "I have had great satisfaction in meeting with a person so nearly connected with Sir Joshua Reynolds, & only regret that I was not made aware of this circumstance sooner, as there is no person respecting whose private life I feel more anxious to gain some information." Hair collecting was wildly popular in the nineteenth century, both as a sentimental remembrance of a loved one and as a collectible item analogous to an autograph of a famous person. The lock of hair here is dated 1831, the year before Scott's death (and the writing of this letter). For more information about this letter, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Megan Scauri, M.A., M.L.S., in the Rare Book Department.

        Asia for the Elucidation of the Abbe Gaultier's Geographical Games

      London: John Harris, 1832. Engraved map, 345 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring; mounted. Aspin's educational map based on Gaultier. An attractive children's educational map of Australia, Asia and the east coast of Africa. The map is based on the work of the Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was an influence on game-makers and educational publishers both on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821. Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, as here, and others with geographical information added. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832. All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one recorded in Australia, at the National Library of Australia. The National Library also has a copy of this individual map dated 1823, but otherwise identical to this one.

        New Mode of Preparing a Spirituous Solution of Chloric Ether" in American Journal of Science and the Arts, 21, 1832)

      - FIRST EDITION OF A LANDMARK PAPER present in both the famous Dr. Haskell F. Norman Library and the Landmarks of Science and Medicine from the Library of Andras Gedeon, both collections handled by Christie's. In this paper, Guthrie presents one of three independent discoveries of Chloroform that were, ironically, all discovered at about the same time. Guthrie's discovery was particularly important as it was literally first and because the method he employed it his was the closest to the modern method. Samuel Guthrie was a 19th century physician and chemist who discovered the anaesthetic chloroform (tri-chloromethane) in 1831, by distilling chloride of lime with alcohol in a copper barrel, using it as a mild anesthetic in amputation surgeries. When first made, it was known as "Guthrie's Sweet Whiskey." In Guthrie's communication [paper offered here]. . . it will be seen that he was unaware that his preparation was a new substance. His purpose was to find an inexpensive method for the manufacture of 'chloric ether'" (Faulconer & Keys, Foundations of Anesthesiology, Vol. I, p. 442). Guthrie wrote: "During the last six months a great number of persons have drunk of the solution of chloric ether not only freely, but frequently to the point of intoxication." This substance was variously known as the 'Dutch liquid', 'chloride of hydrocarbon' and 'chloride of olefiant gas'. It was almost certainly dichlorethane, a substance which has many of the properties of chloroform" (ibid). ALSO includes landmark paper on North American spiders by Nicholas Marcellus Hentz and a paper on the geological age of reptiles by Gideon Mantell. REFERENCES: Norman 959.

        A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL

      1832. Good. ADAMS, Hannah [and Mrs. Hannah F. Lee]. A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL NOTICES BY A FRIEND. Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1832. 110 pp. 12mo., green cloth with paper spine label. Fair to good, rear joint starting, spine label scraped with only remnants legible. Light pale spotting to cloth. Interior foxed, hinges starting. Rear flyleaf has small chip and small closed tear. Lovely lithograph frontispiece portrait, slight soil to page edges, not affecting image. Hannah Adams (1775-1831), though she thought herself timid and unworldly, was the first American woman to support herself as an author. Her first book, An Alphabetical Compendium of Various Sects (1784), went through several editions; later editions are titled A View of Religions. She was regarded by her contemporaries as an able and industrious author; yet she herself made only modest claims for her achievement. Her memoir, published posthumously, is the chief source of information about her; and, with characteristic modesty, it was written partly to raise money for her ailing younger sister. (N.A.W.)
