        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.

        Brick from Washington’s Headquarters in New York City

      Portion of a handmade yellow brick, oddly shaped, approximately 2” x 1” x 1”, housed in a 4" high, 1.75” square base, 19th century bottle sealed with a cork. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics. Inside bottle is label neatly penned by John S. Reigart: “Piece of / Yellow Brick / of / the Head Quarters / of / Washington, / Howe, / Arnold and / Andre. / No. 1 Broadway / New York City.” John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America’s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart’s collection was discovered in the estate of a deceased Connecticut book dealer.

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.

        Rare silk broadside of President Jackson’s 1832 Nullification Proclamation

      Broadside “President Jackson’s Proclamation,” one page, 17.5” x 25.5” (visible). Washington, December 10, 1832. Ornately bordered. On silk. Matted and framed to 21.75” x 29.75”. There are minimal defects including a small moth hole beneath the “N” of “President,” almost imperceptible light yellowing in the lower portion, and light waving of the silk. Fine condition. From the Library of Congress: “On December 10, 1832, President Andrew Jackson issued a proclamation to the people of South Carolina that disputed a states’ right to nullify a federal law. Jackson’s proclamation was written in response to an ordinance issued by a South Carolina convention that declared that the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832 ‘are unauthorized by the constitution of the United States, and violate the true meaning and intent thereof and are null, void, and no law, nor binding upon this State.’ Led by John C. Calhoun, Jackson’s vice president at the time, the nullifiers felt that the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832 favored Northern-manufacturing interests at the expense of Southern farmers. After Jackson issued his proclamation, Congress passed the Force Act that authorized the use of military force against any state that resisted the tariff acts. In 1833, Henry Clay helped broker a compromise bill with Calhoun that slowly lowered tariffs over the next decade. The Compromise Tariff of 1833 was eventually accepted by South Carolina and ended the nullification crisis.” In part, “Whereas a convention, assembled in the State of South Carolina have passed an ordinance, by which they declare ‘That the several acts and parts of acts of the Congress of the United States, purporting to be laws for the imposing of duties and imposts on the importation of foreign commodities, and now having actual operation and effect within the United States, and more especially’ two acts for the same purposes, passed on the 29th of May, 1828, and on the 14th of July, 1832, ‘are unauthorized by the Constitution of the United States, and violate the true meaning and intent thereof, and are null and void, and no law,’ nor binding on the citizens of that State or its officers: and by the said ordinance it is further declared to he unlawful for any of the constituted authorities of the State, or of the United States, to enforce the payment of the duties imposed by the said acts within the same State, and that it is the duty of the Legislature to pass such laws as may be necessary to give full effect to the said ordinances...the said Ordinance declares that the people of South Carolina...will consider the passage of any act by Congress abolishing or closing the ports of the said State, or otherwise obstructing the free ingress or egress of vessels to and from the said ports, or any other act of the Federal Government to coerce the State, shut up her ports, destroy or harass her commerce, or to enforce the said acts otherwise than through the civil tribunals of the country, as inconsistent with the longer continuance of South Carolina in the Union; and that the people of the said State will thenceforth hold themselves absolved from all further obligation to maintain or preserve their political connection with the people of the other States, and will forthwith proceed to organize a separate Government, and do all other acts and things which sovereign and independent States may of right do... “I, Andrew Jackson, President of the United States, have thought proper to issue this my Proclamation, stating my views of the Constitution and laws applicable to the measures adopted by the Convention of South Carolina, and to the reasons they have put forth to sustain them, declaring the course which duty will require me to pursue, and, appealing to the understanding and patriotism of the people, warn them of the consequences that must inevitably result from an observance of the dictates of the Convention...” The complete text can be found at http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/jack01.asp#b1 The “Report [of the] Librarian of Congress for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 1903” lists the accession, since July 1, 1902, of the broadside “Nullification proclamation of President Jackson, December 10, 1832 (on silk).”

        Experiments and observations on the gastric juice, and the physiology of digestion

      F.P. Allen Plattsburgh: F.P. Allen. 1833. 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. "To the medical bibliographer there are few more treasured Americana than the brown-backed, poorly printed octavo volume of 280 pages with the imprint Plattsburgh, Printed by F.P. Allen, 1833" (Osler). Howes B-291: "Most important American contribution to medical science."

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.

        Manuscript Letter Book of John Atkinson, Bellows Falls, Vermont, 1833-1838

      Bellows Falls, 1833-1838, 1833. Bellows Falls, 1833-1838. Manuscript letter book of John Atkinson (1775-1838), eldest son of the pioneering merchant and philanthropist whose name he inherited, John Atkinson (1742-1823). A substantial record, largely dealing with the sale and financing of land, 310 pages, plus 3 page index of names. Titled and paginated in his hand, letters span from 5 August 1833 to 22 May 1838, only a few weeks before his death. All are written at Bellows Falls, Vermont. Indication of moisture to boards, otherwise very good condition, internally clean and bright, fascinating records in a neat hand. Together with an important and substantial book on the history of the area, which features genealogies of its founders, remarkably detailed historic data, as well as the bookplate, signature and an inscription of a descendent of two of Bellows Falls pioneer families, the Flemings and the Atkinsons. Bellows Falls: Published by the Town, 1907. "History of the Town of Rockingham Vermont including the Villages of Bellows Falls, Saxtons River, Rockingham, Cambridgeport and Bartonsville 1753-1907 with Family Genealogies." Author: Lyman Simpson Hayes 8vo. xvi, 850 pages. Publisher's original green cloth, gilt tooled to front, titled in gilt to spine. Occasional annotations in pencil, minor wear to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, with the bookplate and inscription of Edward Cary Fleming, native to Bellows Falls and grandson of Colonel Alexander Fleming. Atkinson's name is seen profusely in the book, as he was involved in many aspects of commerce and development in Bellows Falls. Transactions too numerous to mention, John Atkinson, son of John Atkinson the first, in this volume records early land transactions and communications pertaining to financing, law, title claims, deed contracts, inheritances, etc. Evidently the writer is a land broker, lawyer, or both, is well versed and knowledgeable on the subjects at hand as so many figures sought his expertise and assistance. Even a cursory glance provides remarkable highlights, such as, matters of a subdivision of land in New York dating back to 1797, a letter to the Land Office in Boston which addresses George W. Coffin (later mayor of Lynn, Massachusetts) regarding Legislature Acts and a soldier's rights, research of early deeds and their entitled heirs, a request from Deacon John Holbrook of Battleboro in Vermont for maps and information about land in Canada which had been conveyed to his father (John Atkinson), and correspondence to abolitionist David Putnam in Marietta, Ohio, in 1837. On 13 December 1833 letter is written to John Adams Perkins, Canadian attorney in Montreal, which seeks a detailed statement of account of services rendered by him in the sale of Atkinson family properties across the border. In Canadian currency, at the time British Pounds, costs include highway tax and land tax, advertising and consultation fees, even portage fees. Correspondence with Perkins is relatively frequent. Cash currency was the standard form of payment, although as seen in at least one instance, a cash receipt may have been forfeited for saleable gelding horses on a delinquent account. Among more complex matters, some of the letters are for soliciting payment, outlining account status, offering empathetic leniency in times of depression, identifying lot and numbers the numbers of acres. Includes several charts of payments and interest. A few letters also reveal the disbursement of some of the holdings amassed over decades by his own father, Vermont pioneer and philanthropist. The volume houses a plethora of correspondence which ultimately reveals financial and social information about numerous great American forefathers, many of which have become giant household brand names today, a meager sampling of names includes Truman, Trapp, Camden, May, Johnson, Jackson, Allen, Campbells, Loomis, Cooper, Ford, etc. Folks addressed in these letters are widespread, from Philadelphia, New York City, across Vermont and West Virginia, Ohio, New Hampshire, and north as far as Canada. John Atkinson (1742-1823) was a English merchant active in colonial trade, who came to America during the American Revolutionary War, earned great wealth and respect as a merchant in Boston and New York City, and was instrumental in the development of Bellows Falls in Vermont. The philanthropist was a chief investor and constructor of the Bellows Falls canal which was built from 1791 to 1802. He also contributed greatly as one of the first benefactors of the Immanuel Church Cemetery by providing the land for it, and owned a saw mill in the area. Atkinson was an incorporator, in 1799, and initial owner of the first postal road through the village, known as the Green Mountain Turn-Pike. Born in Kirby Moorside, Yorkshire, England in 1742, Atkinson's first overseas voyage took him to Boston in 1771, where he was engaged in the mercantile business until about 1776. A Loyalist, Atkinson emigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his wife and young son, John, when the British evacuated Boston in March of 1776. Returning to England only for a short period, he established himself in New York City in the winter of 1777-1778. During this period he made frequent trips to Bellows Falls, where he settled a second home, and to London, until finally in 1791 the family's American citizenship was restored. He settled and prospered immensely as a New York merchant until June 1819. Atkinson purchased large tracts of land in West Virginia, Ohio, and Vermont, among other states and territories, but also was generous in supporting the immediate future of his new nation. From his own capital, Atkinson contributed financial advances to Rhode Island claims for the payment of Revolutionary soldiers, which was never repaid to him. Atkinson, originator of the Bellows Falls canal, died in his residence in 1823, which was later occupied by Colonel Alexander Fleming, who was the agent of the Canal Company for forty-seven years, and also husband to Atkinson's daughter Emma Seton. The published book, described above, bears the ownership inscription and bookplate of Edward Cary Fleming, the colonel's grandson, born in Bellows Falls 1826 to the colonel's fourth child, Samuel Cary. The Manuscripts Division, William L. Clements Library, in the University of Michigan, holds a collection of John Aktinson papers. .

A System of Penal Law, For the State of Louisiana: Consisting of A Code of Crimes and Punishments, A Code of Procedure, A Code of Evidence, A Code of Reform and Prison Discipline, A Book of Definitions. 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. Philadelphia: James Kay, Jun. & Brother, [1833]. v, 745 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Small chips to margins of two leaves with no loss to text. Negligible light foxing in places, interior otherwise clean. Handsome. * Second edition, one of two printings issued in 1833. (The other has the date on the title page.) 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.
