        A Treatise on Fortification, Deduced from Established Principles, With Observation on the Increased Effects of Artillery; [ plus Plates Volume]

      Croydon: William Annan. 1833. First Edition. Hardcover. Three quarter calf over boards, lower corners rubbed with some loss, upper corners and spine ends rubbed, some surface wear to leather in places, spine with gilt decoration and contrasting spine labels bearing gilt titles, some spotting to prelims but text clean and bright. [PLATES Volume, William Annan, nd.] 4to, three quarter calf over marbled boards, loss of leather from top and bottom inch and half of spine, joints started and weak, boards rubbed, corners bumped/rubbed, contains double page vignette, 14 double page plates detailing the construction of fortifications and 3 double page plates and 2 double page tables dealing with artillery, some foxing to plates, plates measure approx 510mm by 325mm , Capt. Hector Straith (later Major) was an instructor in artillery and fortification at the East India Company's military seminary and it was in this capacity that he wrote this work. At the time much of the most current ideas about fortification had been developed by a number of French military engineers and Straith's aim was to provide as much of this information as possible in a single work in English for the benefit of his students. Straith believed that both theoretical understanding and practical knowledge were vital if his students were to be able to oversee the construction of fortifications and their defence in the field. To this end he admits to offering somewhat simplified instructions on defilement, instructions he believed could be assimilated by his students in the time alloted to their teaching. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xxvii [ii] 409 [1] pp .

        Illustrations of the Botany and other branches of the Natural History of the Himalayan Mountains, and of the Flora of Cashmere

      London: printed by J.L. Cox & Sons for Wm. H. Allen & Co., [1833-]1839[- 1840]. 2 volumes in 1, small thick folio. (14 1/8 x 10 3/8 inches). Half- titles. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece view of the Himalayas by J. Clark after Lt.Col. R. Smith, 1 hand-coloured plate of a geological section of the Himalayas, 3 uncoloured lithographic plates of fossils, hand-coloured lithographed plan of the botanic garden at Saharanpore and 96 hand-coloured natural-history plates, drawn on stone by Maxim Gauci and others, coloured by John Clark[e] or Mr.Barclay, after Vishupersaud, Miss Drake, W. Saunders, Luchmun Sing, J.T. Hart and others, printed by Graf & Soret (comprising: 2 plates of mammals, 2 plates of birds, 2 plates of insects, and 90 botanical plates). Expertly bound to style in half dark green morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition of this "pioneering ecological study" (Rix) on the trees, shrubs and flowers of the Himalayan region of the Indian sub-continent, illustrated with delightful images after Vishnuperand: the greatest Indian botanical artist of his time. Born in Cawnpore the son of an officer in the service of the East India Company, John Forbes Royle joined the medical staff of the Bengal Army in Calcutta in 1819 or 1820. Three years later, in 1823, he was able to combine his medical and military duties with his love of botany when he was appointed superintendant of the botanical garden at Saharunpore. He carried out a thorough investigation of the properties of traditional plant-based Indian drugs, buying them in the bazaars, and in the present work (vol.I, pp.239- 240) he also recommends the establishment of cinchona (the basis for quinine) in India. He was one of the first to botanise in the Himalayas, and his position at Saharunpore allowed him to commission Vishnupersaud and others to produce an important and valuable collection of beautiful and highly accurate drawings of the specimens he found during his plant- hunting expeditions. The resulting collection also contained the first visual record of many species. In 1831, Forbes returned to England with his herbarium and collection of drawings, and the publication of the present work began with the publication of the first (of 11) parts in September 1833. The work progressed steadily until May 1836 (when the 9th part was published), but Forbes appointment as professor of materia medica at King's College, London, in 1837 seems to have delayed the appearance of the tenth part until February 1839, and the final eleventh part in March or April 1840. The majority of the plates are after Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), "the most talented of the native Indian [botanical] artists" (Blunt). He was employed by many of the most important plant collectors and botanists of the time, including Nathaniel Wallich and Robert Wight, and unfortunately, he remains one of only a handful of early 19th-century Indian botanical artists whose names are known - this in itself is an indication of the high esteem in which his work was held by western botanists at the time. An examination of the large collection of his original drawings still held by the India Office Library and the Kew Herbarium confirms his reputation amongst his contemporaries. The transfer of the drawings onto stone was carried out by the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects: the Maltese born Maxim Gauci, and, unusually, Forbes also gives the names of the colourists: Mr. Clarke (probably John Clark who coloured the plates in Wallich's Plantae Asiaticae) and Mr. Barclay BM(NH) IV,p.1758; Bradley Bibliography I,p.472; Great Flower Books (1990) p.134; Nissen BBI 1690, Massachsetts Horticultural Society Library p.272; M.Rix. The Art of the Plant World p.183; Stafleu & Cowan IV,9734

        Voyages Round the World; with selected sketches of voyages to the South Seas, North and South Pacific Oceans, China, etc....between 1792 and 1832

      New York: 1833. Octavo. 499pp. 5 plates (2 folding). Original green cloth- backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece. First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands...the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer... It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the ... fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages. American Imprints 18752; Ferguson 1643; Hill (2004) 581; Howes F27, "aa."; Sabin 23780; Forbes 839.

London: J. Hatchard and Son, 1833. xi, [5], 356, 72 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 9-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter morocco over marbled boards (by J. Macdonald, Co., Norwalk, CT.), endpapers renewed. Negligible light foxing to a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. According to McCulloch's landmark treatise A Treatise on the Principles and Practical Influence of Taxation and the Funding System (1845), the first systematic study of public finance in English, "[t]his is a valuable work. Its author having long been engaged in the supervision of the collection of the income or property tax repealed in 1815, it embodies much practical as well as theoretical information. We dissent from the views taken by Mr. Sayer of Taxes on Income: but we are not on that account the less ready to admit the ability and judgement he has displayed in recommending their adoption" (359). OCLC locates 35 copies. This study is based on an earlier work entitled On the Advantages of Substituting an Income Tax or Property Tax for the Present Taxes (1831).

        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw: The Open Door

      E.C Biddle 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.

        Hayne Hudjihini Eagle of Delight

      Philadelphia: Key & Biddle, 1833. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. 11 1/2 x 8 inches. 18 7/8 x 13 1/4 inches. 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. This very nice example of Hayne Hudjihini's portrait gives a hint of the beauty and charm that captivated President Monroe, Thomas McKenney and members of the Cabinet. She was one of Shaumonekusse's five wives, and was thought to be the most beautiful of all the Native American wives who visited Washington. She was eighteen or nineteen when King painted her portrait. Sadly, she died of the measles soon after returning home. 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.

First edition, 8vo, pp. 280; 3 wood-engravings in the text; moderate foxing; original plain paper-covered boards backed in brown muslin, printed paper label on spine; some cracks along the cloth at the joints, light foxing (less than usual for this title), and an old ink stain at the top of the fore-edge (not entering text); a very good copy in the original binding, and contained in a new brown cloth slipcase, green morocco label lettered in gilt on spine. Beaumont (1785-1853) was a surgeon in the U.S. Army, and was the first to study the digestive system of a living person. His patient, a Canadian half-breed who had received a near-mortal gunshot wound in the abdomen and chest, recuperated over a period of many months, sustaining a permanent fistula in the stomach wall through which Beaumont was able to study the process of digestion. Beaumont began his observations in 1825 and continued them for nearly eight years, over which time his patient fully recovered. Horblit 10; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 130; Garrison-Morton 989.

Post Offices in Canada, 1861 - Maitland Grenville, S.R. Postmaster. Lande 260, First commissioner of the Canada Company and famous author and poet and father of Sir Alexander Galt. The author's eventful life including his services in the Canada Company, travels in America, founding the city of Guelph, Upper. Canada. In 1824, Galt was appointed Secretary to the Canada Company, a charter company established to aid in the colonization of Upper Canada. While in Canada, Galt lived in Ontario, where he founded the city of Guelph in 1827. The community of Galt in Ontario was named after him. His three sons played prominent roles in Canadian politics; one of them, Alexander, was one of the 'Fathers of the Confederation', and Canada's first Minister of Finance. During his tenure with the Canada Company, Galt ran afoul of several colonial authorities, including Sir Peregrine Maitland,who was Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada at the time. He was heavily criticised by his employers for his lack of basic accounting skills and failure to carry out their established policies. This resulted in his dismissal and recall to Great Britain in 1829. Soon after his return to England he was imprisoned for several months for failure to pay his debts. One of Galt's last novels, The Member, has political corruption as its central theme. Despite failing health, Galt was involved in another colonial business venture, the British American Land Company,which was formed to develop lands in the Eastern Townships of Lower Canada. Galt served as secretary but was forced to resign in December 1832 because of his health.He retired to Greenock in Scotland, publishing his two volume Autobiography in 1833.
