        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw, [Tenskautawaw] The Open Door

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1833. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition apart from the usual off-setting in the plate. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Elsk-wa-ta-wa orTenskwatawa (1775-1834) was the name Lalawethika, a Shawnee leader and brother of Tecumseh, adopted after a profound vision. Socially unpopular among his people, Lalawethika was quagmired by alcohol during late 1790s and early 1800s when Tecumseh, who didn't drink, fought the American forces under General Arthur St. Clair and Anthony Wayne. In 1805, Tenskwatawa had a vision that changed his life. He stopped drinking and became a wandering orator, known as the Prophet. His main goal became to unite Native Americans against the whites and to persuade them to renounce all the trappings of the white world, including alcohol. The brothers sought to form a confederacy of Indian nations: Tenskwatawa as the religious leader and Tecumseh as political leader. Then, without his brother's approval or knowledge, Tenskwatawa fought General Harrison at Tippecanoe. Though not a definitve defeat, the battle represented an effective end to the Indian confederacy. Tecumseh exiled his brother for having fought it. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

        Zoological Illustrations, or Original Figures and Descriptions of new, rare, or interesting animals, selected chiefly from the classes of Ornithology, Entomology, and Conchology, and arranged on the principles of Cuvier and other modern Zoologists

      London: 1820-1823 & 1830-, 1833. Six volumes, octavo, 318 handcoloured plates, very occasional light foxing and toning; an excellent set in uniform contemporary green half morocco over marbled boards, all edges gilt. Including very many specimens from the South Seas. A particularly attractive set of both the first and second series of this beautiful work of natural history; all published, and rare in such fine original condition. The importance of this work to Australian and Pacific natural history cannot be overestimated: several plates feature Australian specimens - particularly birds - figured for the first time, while many of the illustrations are derived from the collections of important figures such as Sir Joseph Banks, Elizabeth Bligh, Allan Cunningham and John Byron. Peculiarly attractive is a plate in the second series, depicting the Jamaican "Two-Toothed Disk Snail", from an original sketch by John Lewin, a friend of the Swainson family.Swainson's friend William Elford Leach, head of zoology at the British Museum, first encouraged him to experiment with lithography so as to make drawings of animals suitable for colouring. Thus began the publication of this, his first major work, in which all of the plates are by the author; Swainson was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography in this way, achieving a fresh and admirable style.The work deals with specimens from all around the globe, with many from Java, the East Indies, and the Americas (particularly Brazil, visited by Swainson in 1816). Of great interest are the many plates illustrating specimens from the South Seas. Swainson was particularly good on shells, although he relied on the sometimes poor recording of earlier collectors, and was sometimes not able to be more specific than simply giving their habitat as "South Seas". There are, nonetheless, three illustrations of Australian shells, the "New Holland Mitre", the "Mitra melaniana", and the "Scaphella maculata", the last from the collection of Elizabeth Bligh. Several other South Seas shells are from the collection of Sir Joseph Banks, including the "Mitra vitatta", about which Swainson comments that 'this superb shell is figured from a matchless specimen brought home by that illustrious and lamented patron of science, the late Sir J. Banks, from the Pacific Ocean'.The work is rich with images of Australian birds, with lovely depictions of the "Azure Kingsfisher", "Red-shouldered Parakeet", "Turcosine Parrakeet", "Blue-fronted Parrakeet", and the "Tabuan, or King Parrakeet" (drawn by Swainson from a live specimen). He includes an image of the "White-collared Honeysucker", with the interesting note that 'Lewin's figure is so excellent, that I should not again have represented this bird, had not the plate been prepared previous to the publication of his work'. Perhaps the most personal note accompanies his depiction of "Swainson's, or Blue-bellied Lory" (Trichoglossus Swainsoni), where he comments on his 'pleasure at seeing our name affixed to this charming bird, and in clearing up its history. As a child we well remember our unwearied delight at seeing its figure in White's Voyage'.Several Australian birds are depicted for the first time. This interesting group, which we list here with Swainson's original scientific designations, includes the "Yellow-tufted Honeysucker" (Melliphaga auricomis); "Red-Collared Parakeet" (Psittacus Barabandii), from a skin in the possession of Mr Leadbeater; the "Keel-billed Flycatcher" (Muscipeta carinata), 'from a specimen belonging to Mr. Brookes; since which, I have received two others from New Holland'; and the so-called "New Holland variety" of the "White-eyed Warbler" (Sylvia annulosa), described by George Caley. Further, of great significance are the two birds noticed from specimens collected by Allan Cunningham, the famous natural historian and His Majesty's Botanist in New South Wales, who sent the specimens to Swainson: the "Black & White Robin" (Petroica bicolor) and the "Golden-eared Parrakeet" (Leptolophus auricomis). The latter had only recently been pictured in Edward Lear's Parrots, but Swainson criticises the 'peculiarly inappropriate' name Lear gave it.Charmingly, three Australian butterflies are also figured here, two for the first time. The first is the "Cressida Butterfly" (Cressida Heliconïdes), from two in his own collection and 'received from Van Diemans Land'. The other two, the Australian Jasia-Butterfly (Jasia Australis) and the Australian Burnet (Heleona fenestrata), are both recorded as being collected on the north-west coast of Australia by Allan Cunningham on the King voyage.Not only is Swainson's important work rarely offered, very few examples in contemporary bindings seem to have survived as complete sets, as here: it is more commonly seen in parts, even as single volumes. This work is not in Ferguson, who did note Swainson's work in cataloguing Elizabeth Bligh's shell collection for auction in 1822 (Ferguson, 879). Sitwell lists the first series as having one hundred and ninety eight plates, but all copies of which we are aware, including the copy in the State Library of South Australia, have one hundred and eighty two plates, as here.

        Augusta glaucescens

      [Vienna, 1833. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Wilhelm Sandler. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing, mild offsetting, and slight discolouration of the paper due to age. A very fine image of a Brazilian exotic, from the deluxe, large-paper, hand-coloured issue of Pohl's masterpiece. Pohl's magisterial Plantarum Brasiliae, one of the most important Brazilian floras, was based on observations and collections that Pohl made while travelling in Brazil from 1817 to 1821. Published upon his return to Vienna, the plates were issued as outline lithographic drawings, or, as here, fully hand-coloured pictures printed on larger sheets of paper. Pohl was curator of the Vienna Natural History Museum and the Vienna Brasilian Museum. Cf. Cleveland Collections, 928; cf. Dunthorne, 226; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.125; cf.

        I. R. privilegiata società nomata Assicurazioni Generali Austro Italiche stabilita in Trieste. Approvata con Superiore Ordinanza dell'Eccelso Governo del Littorale. Riconosciuta dagli altri governi dello stato

      Giuseppe Antonelli, Venezia 1833 - First edition. Published unbound. 15, (1) p. and 14 plates with charts. In this very early broshure Generali introduces its services and the conditions of life assurance. Gererali has been established somewhat more than a year before the date of this publication on December 26, 1831. The company, unlike the most of the Trieste based competitive insurance companies, provided services not merely for maritime and flood insurance but also land, life, pension and any area of insurance that permitted by law. It was established by a group of notable Jewish families of Trieste and Venice. The structure of the company and the names of the management are presented on the third page of this publication: Giuseppe Lazzano Morpurgo, member of the wealthy North Italian Jewish family; the co-founders Vidal Benjamin Cusin and Marco Parente, the businessman with ties to the Vienna Rothschild family; the shipbuilder Michele Vucetich; Alessio Paris who in 1826 had been the founder of the competitor Adriatico Banco; the legal advisor Giambattista Rosmini and Samul della Vida from Ferrara. The first chairman of the company was Giovanni Cristoforo Ritter de Zahony, a Frankfurt native with a Hungarian title. One of the earliest publications from the founding epoch of Generali, which in a few years became the largest insurance company in Italy and today the fifth-largest in Europe. An extremely rare and very early publication by the well known assurance company Generali. We could not trace any copy in institutional holdings. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Vue De George's Street A Sydney... Vue De George's Street A Sydney

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithograph, 225 x 330mm, very good condition in mount. One of the earliest views of George Street, published in Dumont D'Urvillle's Atlas Historique from the Voyage de la Corvette l'Asrolabe. The view is looking northeast, with the Guardhouse on the left and a view through the buildings to the masts of the ships anchored at Circular Quay. In the foreground is Bungaree, the Aboriginal leader dressed in British military attire complete with breastplate around his neck. Bungaree was one of the first to receive a breastplate, a practise Governor Macquarie began in 1816.Louis Auguste de Sainson volunteered to join the Astrolabe as a draughtsman in 1826. He was recommended to the expedition's commander Dumont d'Urville by Quoy, one of the naturalists, and joined the ship at Toulon on 7 February 1826. Until the ship returned to France on 1 April 1829 de Sainson earned his monthly salary of 100 francs by producing a total of nearly 500 drawings. The Astrolabe was in Sydney in late 1826, when Sainson would have completed his watercolour view of this scene.

        Manuscript Journal - Butterflies of Britain

      London, 1833. England, circa 1833-1835. Manuscript journal devoted to butterflies specific to Great Britain in which 21 unique Papilio type genus are described and illustrated in colour by a skilled pre-Victorian hand. The writer/artist is identified only as E.S.D. by initials on the last page, and draws directly from Thomas Brown's then recent and unprecedented work on the subject. 8vo. 87 pages including index. In original leather binding gilt tooled to spine. Volume measures 13 x 19,5 cm. Drawings range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 4,5 x 3 cm and the largest approximately to 7 x 6 cm. Some sunfading to boards, otherwise in Very Good condition, internally bright, a pleasing and unusual volume. With an authoritative work in hand, the latter then being the only one of its kind, and the first edition now being extremely scarce, a student or enthusiast of biology transcribes the features, development and habits of 21 select butterflies, each also hand drawn and ink coloured in vibrant life-like hues. Scientific classifications and Latin names are recorded for each. Butterflies illustrated and described in detail include the following: The Peacock butterfly The Nettle Tortoise-Shell The Orange Tip The Great Copper The Clouded Yellow "In Britain considered rare... abounded in 1793" The Emperor of the Woods / Purple Highflier "esteemed among the rare of the British Lepidopetra" The Plantain Fritillary The Swallow-Tail The Camberwell Beauty The Brimstone The Mazarine Blue The Brown Hair Streak The Chalk-Hill Blue The Marbled Butterfly The Purple Hair-Streak The Caerulean [Cerulean] The Apollo The Large White Cabbage The Silver Stripe The Small Copper The Charlotte The above was most likely drawn from the first edition of the book, all of the above listed specimens are found within and being in sequence. Captain Thomas Brown (1785-1862) was a British naturalist and malacologist, born in Perth, Scotland. After his military service, he wrote several natural history books, a few dealing with conchology, also, "The Book of butterflies, Sphinges, and Mths" and "The Taxidermist's Manual." He also made the illustrations for a well known book on American ornithology by Alexander Wilson and Charles Lucien Bonaparte (1831-1835). Brown was a fellow of the Linnean Society, a member of the Wernerian, Kirwanian and Phrenological Societies, and president of the Physical Society. Material from his books was used by United States naturalist Thomas Wyatt for his book Manual of Conchology. In 1840 he became curator of the Manchester Museum for twenty-two years. A species of sea snail, a marine gastropod, was named after him: Zebina browniana d'Orbigny, 1842. The first edition of Thomas Brown's work was published in Edinburgh and London, 1832, titled, "The Book of Butterflies, Sphinges, and Moths: illustrated by ninety-six engravings, coloured after nature." A second and expanded edition appeared in 1834, "The Book of Butterflies, Sphinges, and Moths: illustrated by one hundred and forty-four engravings, coloured after nature." . Very Good.

Prepared Under the Authority of a Law of the Said State. To Which are Prefixed a Preliminary Report on the Plan of a Penal Code, and Introductory Reports to the Several Codes Embraced in the System of Penal Law.

A solid copy of a scarce title. * Second edition. A comprehensive system of criminal law which, while not adopted in the United States, is still influential today because it is the first complete penal code built on Jeremy Bentham's principles of codification. First published in 1828, Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." A notably humane code, it is important for its advocacy of prevention rather than punishment. Livingston was a senator from Louisiana and later a member of Andrew Jackson's cabinet. R.W. Colcock was a prominent attorney in Charleston and the father of notable South Carolina politician William J. Colcock. Hicks, Men and Books Famous in the Law 180.

Part of the Memoir was written by T.F. Kelsall. One of at least three known bindings, all with the same spine label. Wise, Ashley Library, V., p.91 records a copy in ?'red-brown boards?', whilst probably later copies are known in full blue cloth. The label records the publication price as 3s. 6d.

Contemporary Contemporary dark blue half calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments with gilt titles direct, marbled sides with gilt rolls, all edges marbled, grey endpapers. Engraved frontispiece and extra engraved title, with tissue guard. Armorial bookplate of Mark Everard Pepys, sixth Earl of Cottenham (1903?-1943), to front pastedown. Boards a little rubbed, a couple of very light scuffs to spine, prelims slightly foxed, else internally crisp. An excellent copy. First Bentley edition, the third edition overall, and the first one-volume edition. Bentley bought the copyrights of all Jane Austen's works to include them in his Standard Novels series, apparently aiming at the private buyer, as circulating libraries still had copies of the originals. Bentley later reissued the volumes as a set, but this copy is from the original individual issue.
