        Ruined palace at Megera where King Otto I of Greece with his brother Crown prince Maximillian stayed on their journey to Athens .... 10-22 May 1833 " Palast Ruine zu Megera, in welcher König Otto I von Griechenland mit seinen Bruder dem Kronprinzen Max von Bayern auf der Reise nach Athen in Mitte seiner Getreuen übernachtete, am 10/22 May 1833

      Philhellenic: Munich Gustav Kraus. c1835. Black & white lithograph of King Otto at Megera in 1833, by Gustav Kraus. Formerly laid down to thicker paper, remains on verso, some creasing and spotting to margins Gustav Kraus 1804-1852. From the very beginning, lithography was Gustav Kraus' preferred artistic medium. This method (printing by using a limestone) had been developed by Alois Senefelder (1771-1834) in 1796/1798. Lithography was an obvious choice for several reasons: it was well established in Munich, the printing stone could be produced easily, and it was possible to fabricate many copies (lithographic limestone, if handled correctly, could be used indefinately). When Kraus' first lithographs were published in 1825, he had already completely mastered the technique. With two exceptions in 1848, he always used  modern chalk lithography, which allowed very smooth, fluid transitions and tonal values. n 1836, Kraus bought an estate in Munich's Maxvorstadt (Löwenstraße 19, today Schellingstraße 26). He also used the location as an artist's studio and a small publishing house. He published most of his works by himself. In the same year, he also attained the citizenship of Munich Numerous travels through Bavaria and beyond provided material for large landscape illustrations, and illustrations of military manoeuvres and other incidents. In addition Gustav Kraus also worked on drawings and paintings of other artists: he either produced lithographs as contract work, or he had not been present personally, as in the case of many illustrations pertaining to King Otto's (1815-1867; king from 1832-1862) military procession into Greece. The former are characterised by a very exact reproduction of the antetypes, while the latter display a masterful handling of composition and prop buildings. Philhellenic King Otto Megera

        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw: The Open Door

      Philadelphia: E.C Biddle, 1833. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.5" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw, also known as Tenskwatawa, was the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh's brother. A self-proclaimed prophet, Tenskwatawa preached unification among his people. He was eventually exiled by his brother for trying to fight the Americans against Tecumseh's will. Overall toning and offsetting. Chips to lower and upper right corners. One piece in our collection of Native American prints.

        TEXAS. OBSERVATIONS, HISTORICAL, GEOGRAPHICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE, IN A SERIES OF LETTERS, WRITTEN DURING A VISIT TO AUSTIN'S COLONY, WITH A VIEW TO A PERMANENT SETTLEMENT IN THAT COUNTRY, IN THE AUTUMN OF 1831

      Baltimore: Armstrong & Plaskitt, 1833.. 167pp. plus folding frontispiece map. 12mo. Original purple-brown cloth, title stamped in gilt on front board, expertly rebacked to style. Very good. In a blue half morocco box. Provenance: Louisa Austin (inscribed on front free endpaper "Louisa / from her father / A. Austin). This copy bears an intriguing inscription on the front fly leaf, inscribed: "Louisa / from her father / A. Austin." Louisa Austin (1816-67) was the daughter of Aaron Austin (1786-1849) and his wife, Mary Cooley (d. 1862). Aaron Austin was born in Wallingford, Connecticut, and raised his family in eastern New York, in the town of Durham. He was descended of the bloodline of John Austin of New Haven, Connecticut. Stephen F. Austin, the "empresario" of Texas, and Mary Austin Holley, the author of this book, were cousins, and the book is in fact dedicated to Stephen F. Austin. The two of them come from the bloodline of Richard Austin of Charlestown, Massachusetts, and do not share a familial relationship with Aaron Austin and his family. Mary Austin Holley, however, was born in New Haven, and Stephen F. Austin was educated in Colchester, Connecticut, and his father, Moses Austin, was born in Durham, Connecticut, so it seems natural to believe that these two families, though not related by blood but linked by surname and living in rather close proximity to each other in small communities, would have known each other and been on friendly terms. The rare first edition of the first book in English devoted entirely to Texas. The fine "Map of the State of Coahuila and Texas" is by W. Hooker and displays the region from just east of New Orleans to a degree west of Santa Fe, and north from the mouth of the Rio Grande to just above the 38th parallel. Copies with the map are rare indeed. Mrs. Holley was the cousin of Stephen F. Austin, to whom the book is dedicated, and Jenkins states that it was written with Stephen's assistance. Mrs. Holley travelled from the mouth of the Brazos River to Bolivar to aid her brother, Henry, in making his home there. She found Texas "very like a dream or youthful vision realized." Her work on this book was followed closely and approved by her brother and cousin. The book is, in the words of Thomas W. Streeter, "one of the Texas classics" and was one of his favorite books on life and travel in Texas. Streeter and Jenkins note various states of the map and the text. Streeter gives a detailed description of the map in entry 1136 of his Texas bibliography, and in this copy the copyright notice is printed on the verso of the titlepage. STREETER TEXAS 1135.

        The Shelley Papers

      Memoir of Percy Bysshe Shelley By T. Medwin, Esq. And Original poems and papers By Percy Bysshe Shelley. Now first collected. London: Whittaker, Treacher, & Co., 1833. Pott 16mo in half-sheets; half-title not called for; 3pp. integral advertisements at end, verso of last leaf blank; pp.viii+180+[iii]+[i]; quarter puce ripple-grain cloth, paper spine-label, drab boards; fore-edges rough trimmed, others fully trimmed. Slight fading to cloth of spine, and label dusty; some very light foxing or marking passim; a nice copy nonetheless of a delicate book, that is in our experience uncommon. Granniss 81: “Shelley’s poems and papers are reprinted from ‘The Atheaeum’ for 1832 and 1833, with the exception of ‘To the Queen of My Heart’, the authenticity of which is doubtful. It first appeared in ‘The Keepsake’. The lines on Shelley, which follow the Advertisement, are by Thomas Lovell Beddoes and were first printed in ‘The Athenaeum’.” 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. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        $25 REWARD. RUN AWAY ON THE 12th DAY OF MARCH LAST... [caption title]

      Huntsville: Fariss, April 9th, 1833.. Broadside, 10 1/2 x 13 1/4 inches. Old fold lines. Light soiling and dampstaining, several small holes. Repaired with old tape on verso. Top right corner torn away, not affecting text. Good. A very early Alabama broadside advertising a reward for the return of a runaway slave belonging to Isaac Murray. The broadside gives very detailed information about the runaway and his last known whereabouts and possible route. It continues: "Run away on the 12th day of March last, from the subscriber living in Monroe county East Tennessee, a negro man named Ned, of a very light complexion; remarkably white or blue eyes; about 5 feet high; 23 or 24 years of age; weighs about 125 pounds; slim, and has a very flat foot: had on when he eloped a blue broadcloth coat, common white cotton pantaloons, a chipped hat and various other clothing. He went off in company with Jeremiah Lillard's negro Fountain, a dark mulatto boy 19 years old. They procured a canoe in Rhea county and proceeded down the Tennessee river to Ross's, where they left the canoe and directed their course over the Lookout Mountain to the river, , and again embarked in another canoe, keeping on the South side of the river. The probability is that they are aiming for the State of Illinois; therefore the subscriber would beg Captains of Steamboats, commanders of flat boats and all others to keep a look out for these runaways...." Murray provides further information on where he can be reached. By their very nature, reward broadsides such as this one are ephemeral and thus scarce. This piece is particularly early in the history of Alabama printing. The first printing in Alabama was in 1807, but it was only regularly established with the first Huntsville newspaper in 1816. The printer of this piece, Dandridge Fariss (1800- 1867), was a native Virginian who moved to Huntsville and established the SOUTHERN ADVOCATE in 1825, which he published until 1837. One of the earliest Alabama imprints this firm has handled. Not in Hummel, or recorded anywhere, and evidently unique.

        ATLANTE DI OTTANTADUE TAVOLE CHE SERVONO AI DIVERSI REGOLAMENTI PEI REALI DUCALI CACCIATORI ESTENSI.

      Modena, G. Gaddi, 1833buone mezza pelle ITALIANO Legatura in mezza pelle rossa e carta marmorizzata ai piatti. 98 carte di cui 82 di tavole illustrate fuori testo, compresi 3 occhielli di tre delle quattro parti in cui è suddivisa l'opera: ""Istruzione"", ""Dell'istruzione sul combattere colla Bayonetta"" e ""d'Esercizio e Manovre"". La quarta ed ultima parte è composta dagli spartiti musicali per i ""Segnali di tromba"". Raro atlante di tavole dedicato ai regolamenti dei Cacciatori Estensi, milizia territoriale costituita nel 1830 sul modello di quella austriaca, con il nome di Bersaglieri del Frignano. Il reclutamento era a base volontaria e i militari provenivano esclusivamente dalle popolazioni del Frignano, provincia modenese della montagna, ritenuta una delle popolazioni più fedeli alla dinastia. Il loro equipaggiamento era molto semplice, limitandosi a una placca di ottone da portare sul cappello borghese. Presero il nome di Reali Ducali Cacciatori Estensi nel 1831, l'anno successivo venne pubblicato il loro regolamento ma, per questioni economiche, privo di immagini che videro la LIBRO nel 1833 con l'edizione qui in esame. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, normali tracce d'usura alla legatura.

        Map of the City of New York Drawn by D.H. Burr, expressly for "New York as it is in 1833

      J. Disturnell New York: J. Disturnell, 1833. Map. Hand-colored copper engraving. 11 1/2" x 9". This rare map is an early edition of David H. Burr's important pocket map of New York City. It depicts the lower half of Manhattan, starting at 34th St, and parts of Brooklyn, all hand-colored to reflect the different neighborhoods. The map is labeled with the commissioner's grid, as well as ferry routes and pier numbers. Letters and numbers indicate public buildings, hotels, and churches in accordance with a key printed on the inside cover of the map's case. The map is in good condition and generally in tact, with browning throughout and concentrated at the folds, considerable creasing, and some small tears along original folds. David H. Burr (1803-1875) was a significant American cartographer and map publisher known best for his 1826 Atlas of the State of New York, one of the most important state atlases in history. His rigorous research and surveying won him accolades particularly later in life, when he was granted a number of civic offices in recognition of his high-quality work. This beautiful map is a fascinating piece of New York City history. (Haskell no. 765)

        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw: The Open Door

      E.C Biddle, Philadelphia 1833 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw, also known as Tenskwatawa, was the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh's brother. A self-proclaimed prophet, Tenskwatawa preached unification among his people. He was eventually exiled by his brother for trying to fight the Americans against Tecumseh's will. Overall toning and offsetting. Chips to lower and upper right corners. One piece in our collection of Native American prints. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.5" x 14".

        MEMOIR OF JOHN ADAM Late Missionary at Calcutta

      London: J. Cross, 1833. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. A monument erected at St. Johns Church, Calcutta reads, "To the memory of JOHN ADAM, eldest son of the right honorable, William Adam, Lord Chief Commissioner of the jury court in Scotland. He arrived in Bengal in 1796 and passed through the highest offices in the civil service of the East India Company. Placed in the supreme council in 1819, he was again appointed to that station when the usual term of holding it had expired. From January to August 1823 he acted as Governor-General of India. Bad health compelled him to embark for England in March 1825. But he died on the 4th of June in the 47th year of his age, and his remains were committed to the ocean." This copy of John Adam's memoir is an association copy, inscribed by John Adam's mother, Katherine Adam to the Rev. James Hill, who was one of her son's closest friends in India, and who had written the letter to her describing her son's death, which is printed in the book. The book would appear to have been compiled by Katherine Adam after her son's death. A hard copy of this book is very hard to find. At the time of this listing no copies were listed in WorldCat and only print-on-demand copies were available for sale on the internet. Inscribed on the front endapers is the following, "To the Reverend James Hill, my dear friend! Accept this tribute of love and gratitude from the mother of John Adam, your late dear friend, who fell in an honourable career of Holy usefulness, with his armour on - his weapons burnished in his hands - his face to the foe - at his pass - in his Master's service, and is now crowned with victory, being before the throne and before the lamb, with the palm in his hand, Sept. 21, 1841, Katherine Adam". An additional inscription reads, "To dear Edith, in memory of her Grandfather James Hill, Page 287." Page 287, as referenced, reads "Owing to the unusuall long delay in the arrival of vessels, we were kept in ignorance for many weeks of any details of the last hours of our departed Missionary. In the month of December, the following beautiful letter from the Rev. J. Hill brough sweet and delighful testimony to his high character, and a soothing counteractive of the agonizing representations of the effects of physical Disorder, in the evidence of the serenity and confidence of a mind stayed on God." The text of the letter describing John Adam's death and the doctor's attempts to save him then follows. The letter describes the use of a lancet and leeches to bleed him and the shaving of his head and the application of a "blister" at the back. The doctor described the seat of the disorder as the brain, occasioned, by exposure to the sun. The book is an account of John Adam's childhood, studies, religious affiliation and his acitivites as a missionary in India. The book describes living conditions in India at the time. Green cloth-covered boards. Frontis is a portrait of John Adam. Foxing of pages around edges and on endpapers. Note tipped into book reads" The profit arising from the sale of this work will be devoted to the cause of Missions". Front gutter is partly worn through to front of book, but binding is secure. Some light creases to a few pages. Paste-down title block on spine is partially worn. Boards have some wear around edges and some scuffing. Some loss at top and bottom of spine. All in all, a good to very good copy of a very hard to find book, with interesting and historic provenance. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 404 pp.

        Album of Sixty-Four Original Pen and Ink Drawings

      - A fascinating collection of original drawings that effectively document many facets of New England domestic and office life in the early to mid-nineteenth century. N.d., circa 1840s. John Murdoch, the artist, can rightly be considered a serious amateur artist, or someone who aspired to becoming a professional but never quite made it as such. A Harvard graduate in the Class of 1833, Murdoch made a living as a clerk while traveling about the country. The drawings here are not all completed, and while the artist clearly wished to capture likenesses of the human figures and realistic details of the setting, whether an office, home, church, or nature, one can judge him as coming up a little short in both departments. To be fair, these are sketches, and sketches are often executed with speed and approximation, as the equivalent of rough notes to be saved for more considered development later. Whatever limitations Murdoch may have had as an artist, though, are compensated by the visual documentary record he bestows on us. In addition to the genre scenes of contemporary life, there are a handful of historical drawings, and occasional a historical drawing within a drawing, as when Murdoch was rendering artwork on the walls. The drawings have been mounted into a large album, which has dimensions of 17 by 12 inches, 43 by 31 cm. The crimson morocco of the spine is rubbed and abraded along the joints, and the binding has wear elsewhere. Still a handsome book to house the drawings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Map of Worcester Shire Town of the County of Worcester

      [Worcester]: Published by C. Harris, 1833 [lithographed by Pendleton's Litho., Boston]. Lithographed folding map, printed on two sheets joined, period hand-colouring in outline. Inset map of the "Village of Worcester." Ten vignette views of buildings, including churches, schools, the "Antiquarian Hall" (i.e. American Antiquarian Society), town hall, the "Lunatic Hospital" and "House of Corrections.". 32 x 25 3/4 inches. The scarcest and most decorative map of Worcester published in the 19th century. "This 1833 map of the town of Worcester, Massachusetts, was printed by Pendleton's lithography. It is distinctive for its depiction of generalized relief and vegetation on the map and of churches and public buildings in the margins" (Ristow). The detail on the map is quite impressive, with hundreds of individual residences named and the locations of businesses identified. The hand coloured boundaries divide the county into twelve school districts. The printing of the map is exceptional, with the hachuring and views exquisitely rendered on stone by Pendleton's Lithography. Stebbins worked as a lawyer in South Brookfield, Massachusetts but was also a trained surveyor. Following work on this map, he was employed as a Civil Engineer by the Massachusetts Western Railroad. The map is rare, with no copies listed in the auction records. We can locate only the Harvard and University of Massachusetts copies. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, p. 289.

        PRIMERA SECRETARIA DE ESTADO. DEPARTMENTO DEL INTERIOR. EL EXMO. SR. PRESIDENTE...LA SECULARIZACION DE LAS MISIONES DE LA ALTA Y BAJA CALIFORNIA

      Mexico. 26 de Noviembre de 1833.. Broadside, 11 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches, on a folded folio sheet. Light wrinkling. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth folding box, spine gilt. An important broadside, announcing the secularization of the missions in California. Santa Anna, president of the Republic of Mexico, announces that the government will adopt all measures to make effective the secularization of the missions of Alta and Baja California, and to promote the colonization of the mission lands. Over the decades the missions, first established in 1769, had accumulated a great deal of land and wealth. The dispossession of the Church and the dissolution of the missions were critical events in the history of California, overthrowing the agrarian economy built up by the Church in the preceding half century. This broadside is a primary document in the unraveling of the power and influence of the missions, and is a fundamental document for the history of California. OCLC locates only four copies of this decree, all in California institutions. OCLC 21636893.
