        Siphocampilus crenatifolius

      [Vienna, 1833. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Wilhelm Sandler. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing. 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. Nissen, BBI, 1551; cf. Pritzel, 7231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan, TL2, 8103.

        Narrative of the Captivity and Providential Escape of Mrs. Jane Lewis...who, with a Son and Daughter...were Made Prisoners Within a Few Miles of Indian Creek, by a Party of Indians of the Tribes of Sacs and Foxes, Commanded by Black Hawk

      Fair with no dust jacket. 1833. Pamphlet. String bound yellow wrapper with rear wrap illustration is heavily soiled with some dampstains. Interior pages have chips, rough-trimmed edges, and foxing and staining, but text is completely readable. Indian captivity narratives were popular at the time and the origin of this narrative is uncertain, though it was probably written by a Hannah Lewis at an earlier date (1817). From the front wrap: " All who have perused the narrative of the capture of the two sisters (Misses Francis and Almira Hall, ) by a party of said tribes, in May, 1832, ought not fail to peruse the narrative of the unfortunate Mrs. Lewis, whose captivity, although of prior date, was much longer, her sufferings much greater, and her escape more miraculous than that of the two young ladies." Howes L 316. ; B&W Illustrations; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; 24 pp .

      A l'Imprimerie de H. Fournier aîné 1833-1834, Paris - 15 livraisons en 5 vol. in-8, table générale, demi-veau blond, dos orné à nerfs, pièces de titre et de tomaison en veau vert, tranches marbrées, armes sur les plats (reliure de l'époque signée J. Weber). Première série complète en 5 tomes publiés entre 1833 et 1834 par J. Taschereau. Deux autres séries suivront jusqu'en 1838. « Deux écrivains anglais, MM. Southern et Harris (Nicolas), ont les premiers conçu l'idée d'une Revue dont les auteurs renonçaient à la discussion des événements du jour pour se reporter aux temps éloignés. Nous venons après eux, mais nous suivrons rarement la route qu'ils s'étaient tracée. Leur recueil était entièrement critique ; l'histoire générale ou particulière occupera le nôtre tout entier. Ils se livraient seulement à l'examen d'ouvrages oubliés et qui n'avaient pas mérité de l'être ; nous, nous ne travaillerons qu'à mettre en lumière les faits passés qui seraient demeurés ignorés, incomplètement connus, ou auraient été présentés sous un faux jour. Notre tâche est de les faire connaître ; mais notre loi est de les laisser exposer par leurs principaux acteurs ou par leurs contemporains. » Mémoires de l'abbé Blache ; Détention du marquis de Sade ; Confession de Bonneval ; Histoire du diable de Laon ; Lettres de grâce accordées par Louis XI ; Lettre de l'exécuteur Sanson ; Divorce de Napoléon ; Proclamation de la régence de Marie de Médicis ; Destitution de Sully ; Mémoires secrets sur le cardinal de Richelieu par Amelot de La Houssaye ; Lettres inédites de Guy Patin ; Est-il bon ?

         Du Système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France; suivi d'un appendice sur les colonies pénales et de notes statistiques.

      Paris, H. Fournier jeune, 1833, in 8°, de 2ff. VIII-439 pp., ill. de 5 gravures et plan h.t. dont 2 se dépl., demi-veau brun époque, dos lisse orné, à la marque "J. Chodron" frappée en queue, rousseurs surtout pour les planches. Bon exemplaire. (de la bibliothèque Chodron de Courcel) Edition originale du plus célèbre ouvrage sur les prisons. Résultat d'une mission d'étude confiée en 1831 à Tocqueville et Beaumont alors qu'ils étaient magistrats à Versailles, afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain. Ils publièrent leur rapport dès leur retour, mais aussitôt Beaumont fut relevé de ses fonctions de substitut, et Tocqueville solidaire, démissionna de son poste de juge suppléant. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera : « le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes ». Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage. Suite à cette expérience américaine allait paraître en 1835 "De la Démocratie en Amérique".¶ Sabin n°4190.

        Traité sur l'économie des machines et des manufactures

      1833 - de (4), XVI, 515 et (1) pages Paris, Bachelier, 1833, in-8, de (4), XVI, 515 et (1) pages, pleine percaline noire postérieure, dos lisse avec titre, Première édition française, procurée par Edouard Biot. La première édition anglaise a paru en 1832. Mathématicien anglais de renom, Charles Babbage est particulièrement connu pour avoir conçu des machines à calculer que l'on considère comme les ancêtres des ordinateurs. Il est à juste titre considéré comme le précurseur de l’informatique. Son Traité sur l’économie des machines et des manufactures constitue un Essai prenant la forme d’une étude novatrice pour l’époque. Se présentant en deux parties, le premier pan de l’ouvrage prend la forme d’un abrégé de mécanique pratique visant à rendre compte de l’utilisation des machines au sein des Arts et des Manufactures. La seconde partie prenant la forme d’un traité d’économie politique expose quant à elle les effets généraux de l’industrie manufacturière, ses avantages et ses inconvénients. Cet ouvrage demeure fondateur, accompagnant le développement du secteur secondaire en Angleterre, Babbage offre ici une étude rigoureuse allant de paire avec le contexte d’industrialisation massif de l’époque. Texte phare de l’économie politique ayant exercé une véritable influence au sein de la discipline, cette première traduction de grande qualité entend promouvoir et favoriser l’essor de l’industrie commerciale en France. Les préceptes de Babbage y sont ainsi pour la première fois exposés et rendu accessibles au public francophone. Bon état, quelques rousseurs. Norman, p.33-34, N° 92 (pour la première édition anglaise) ; et DSB, I, p.354-357. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Manuscript Journal - Importer's Log Book on Southampton Royal Pier - Fresh Fruit Trade

      Southampton, UK 1833 - Southampton, England, 1833-1837. Manuscript log book of a Southampton broker gainfully importing fresh fruit for large firms and wealthy clients in Southampton and London, most likely operating from the Royal Pier which opened in 1833. A complete and detailed record of business transactions, the broker calculates currency differences and the numerous costs involved in foreign imports to create client invoices. 8vo. 128 pages in manuscript on lined paper watermarked Joseph Coles [possibly Joseph T. Coles active 1833-1839, operating a mill at Wookey Hole near Wells, Somerset.] Original brown calf boards ruled and titled "Memorandum Book" in gilt to spine, original marbled endpapers, working metal clasp. Bookbinder's label to front pastedown, being T. King of Southampton. Wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition. This journal provides a window into nineteenth century shipping and import industries, the costs and documentation involved, specifically for the fresh fruit trade. It dates to, and reflects, the sudden and brief peak period of oranges being imported into the United Kingdom - which occurred in the mid-the 1830s. [Oranges from places like Spain, Florida or Latin America entered the United Kingdom in the nineteenth century. Both apples and oranges became the objects of substantial international trade in the nineteenth century, as in the right conditions they remained edible despite being shipped great distances.] Joseph Ridges, this fruit broker in Southampton, appears to have been successful and well known in South England, with notable clients in London and other nearby towns. Indeed, his services must have been popular, as he brought in fresh fruit during dismal rainy winters, mainly from Spain, Portugal, France, and Zante in Greece. The commercial introduction of foreign oranges on a commercial level, in the 1830s, places him in the elite group of the first orange brokers of England. He most likely operated from the Royal Pier which opened in 1833, was the first pier in Southampton, and was used by steamers to the Channel Islands, Le Havre and the Isle of Wight. This volume suggests that it was also used by schooners importing produce from Spain, Portugal and Greece. [In 1803, to revive Southampton's shipping and trade industry the newly-formed Harbour Commissioners demolished the derelict Watergate Quay and began to build the new Town Quay on the same site. The Southampton Docks company was formed in 1835, and in October 1838, the foundation stone of the docks was laid. The first dock finally opened on 29 August 1842.] In the first part, the volume contains a detailed log of specific vessels arriving at the Southampton port, the particulars of the cargo being imported, calculations of various costs, and a record of the invoices. Some ship masters are named, as well as the firms for which he imports goods. Dealing primarily in fruit, he sources product from Spain, Portugal, and France. This section is 58 pages. Following are some examples of the English vessels and cargo documented in this journal: The schooner George Canning arriving from Malaga in 1833 with Luxia raisins, grapes, lemons and oranges, shipped by Crooke Brothers & Co. at Malaga A schooner named Comet arriving from Oporto [Porto], Portugal, 9 October 1833 cargo of cork wood, onions, lemons, wine Sylph arriving from Bordeaux, France, 9 October 1833 with French fruit preserves and olive oil Peace, a schooner arriving from Dénia, Spain, 12 November 1833 with a sizeable cargo of raisins (1740 boxes and 700 half-boxes) shipped by the English firm Messrs Carey and Co. based in Alicante Again the George Canning, this time with a cargo of the popular raisins from Dénia, Spain, arriving 23 October 1834 Again the Comet, whose master William Eva is named here, arriving from Malaga, Spain, 31 October 1834 with raisins, grapes, lemons, and almonds Again Peace, its master bearing the surname Bloomfield, arriving from the Greek island of Zante [Zakynthos] 28 No

        TO THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA [caption title]

      [Tallahassee, 1833. Dbd. Minor edge wear and spotting. Contemporary ownership signature at head of first page. Very good. Untrimmed. A previously unrecorded printing of a key address by the obstinate Gov. Richard K. Call to the inhabitants of Florida. After his nomination to contend for a seat in Congress, he issued this address to his constituents as a preemptive strike against the expected assaults on his character. Call discusses the growing economic importance of the Florida Keys (owing to their proximity to Cuba), a pan-Florida canal, and the removal of the Indians from the territory. He also defends his actions regarding the disbursement of public lands and asserts his friendship (personal and political) with the popular Andrew Jackson. "The pamphlet is not recorded and, as far as I know, has never been mentioned or alluded to by others. It is a typical Call production, full of paranoia and vanity and gratuitous slaps at people who were probably better than he was. He was so completely a Jackson man that he was unable to function independently in a statesman-like manner. This work, therefore, while intended to be his platform for election to the U.S. House of Representatives as Delegate from Florida, never once mentions or alludes to his opponent, Joseph M. White. There are two pages of warmed-over notes on Florida's development needs; the remainder is a reply to criticism of H.M. Brackenridge and a justification of Call's own role as Receiver of the Land Office. At the end is a letter from Call of 1825, on the proposed canal between the Mississippi and St. Marks. The election was held in May, 1833, and it is no wonder he was defeated by White" - Servies, writing after the publication of his noted bibliography of Florida. A paramount Florida item and previously unknown. Not in Servies, nor on OCLC. DAB III, pp.422-23.

Fuzzaro, her cargo examined at Bordeaux on 6 September 1834. [This ship is not to be confused with the vessel by the same name which arrived at Swan River Colony in Australia in 1829 and was wrecked on the return voyage] An invoice for cargo en route to Havre, France for DeLaroche Arrard DeLessert & Co. lists prunes, soft shell almonds, inspected at Bordeaux 31 September 1934. Suddenly oranges are being imported The first indication is an "Invoice for 98 chests of China oranges shipping for Portsmouth on the English cutter Osprey, Capt. Wm. Payne..." dated Seville, 3 December 1834. Another smiliar shipment for China oranges, sour oranges, and China lemons, is dated Seville 24 December 1834. The oranges seem to have quickly increased in popularity, bringing opportunity for public sales, as recorded by the writer. In January 1835 China oranges are being conveyed via St. Michaels [São Miguel Island, Azores], these being examined by a William Toews. Following this is a record of goods sold at a public sale in London 10 November 1834, followed by another sale in London, made by John and James Adams 3 May 1835, their oranges having been procured from Terceira in the Azores. Amidst the import logs is an eight page list comprising a chronological tally of product sales, dating as early as 1824 For each cargo received, the writer notes freight charges, duty, storage, wharfage fees, currency exchange, and other tarrifs which are added to his client's invoice. Often the cargo was bonded. "Customs Entries" is the heading found at center of the volume, prefacing 11 pages of detailed manuscript notes which provide further information on the previously recorded transactions. Here, the broker is revealed by his initialed annotation to the first entry, a declaration which reads as follows, "N.B. on the Book of the Warrants as Follows - I, Joseph Ridges do hereby declare that I am duly authorised by the Importers to enter the within mentioned fruit for the same value of six pounds, witness my hand this ninth day of October 1833. J.R." He makes other declarations in reference to other shipments. Bond agreements are transcribed her also. The subject matter in a section of notes titled "Memorandums" is as vast as the heading suggests, providing notes on gunpowder and soaps, duties payable on imported fruit in 1833 and in 1834, the price of barley and wheat, the exchange value of Maltese, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese and French currencies, measurements of round metal hoops for barrels as well as crate rods. A list of clients includes the Earl of Normanton, wholesale tea dealer Richard Lowcock, brewer and sportmans John Trueman Villebois of Harmsworth near Alresford, London merchants Messrs Cole Nichols and Co. Of personal interest, Ridges transcribes an application which he evidently made in February 1837 to purchase shares in the Southampton Coach Company. This section is 24 pages. A fascinating digression from business matters, the journal contains a collection of highly unusual recipes and concocions, some evidently obtained from persons who have made voyages to foreign lands. Of the twenty-seven pages of recipes, some examples include: ginger beer, ginger wine, currie, Brazil sauce, ropy beer, fish sauce, pickled lemons, crystalized cayenne, black paint, Indian ink and 'curious' Japan ink. We also find mixtures to soothe a broken knee, to increase hair growth, to calm a fretting horse, to clean mahogany, to destory flies, to waterproof footwear, as well as remidies for rheumatic gout and hooping cough, and even a medicine for dogs. One of these is dated 1850. . Very Good.

        Rosier des Indes jaune [Hume's Blush Tea-scented China]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Bessin. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750.

        MEMPO YOMU: THE ESSENTIALS OF COTTON CULTURE AND FARMING.

      Osaka [1833], Kawachiya. Stitched blue wrs., 2 vols., set,. minor worming [mended], 65+64p., 18 b.w. illustrations,wood-. block printed on hand made Washi paper, 14.5 x 22 cm.,covers. scuffed, faded, contents clean, solid. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. This excellent monograph was written by the altruistic Okura Nagasune [1768-1856?]. He was some what of a renaissance man, and worked to improve the lot of the impoverished Japanese farmer. He introduced many new and unusual cash crops including cotton, sugar cane, indigo, cedar, Paulownia, paper-making plants and the tallow or wax tree and several others. . * The work begins with an introduction extolling the virtues of the cotton plant, and a fine illustration of its botanical taxonomy: leaves, stem, buds, flowers, seeds &c. The next illustration shows a lowly farmer and is wife; she rotates the home-made wooden cotton gin by hand, while their elderly and helpless grandfather looks on. The husband and his companion are loading up cotton balls into rice straw bails. It continues with explanaations for cultivation techniques, preparation of the planting beds, planting of the seedlings, fertilization by use of two wooden buckets on the shoulder yoke with the application of "night soil" to the plants. * A double-page picture of all of the farming implements with names of each, many are steel on wooden handles. He offered commentaries on the use of one tool over another in terms of time need to do the same job with his improved tools based on actual time and motion studies ! As the plants grow, so the birds come to feast on the fruit & flowers. * Volume 2 continues with more excellent illustrations on the watering & irrigation of the plants and shows a great number of shallow water well pump poles used to pull up the field water. As the cotton balls are harvested, some are put into bamboo baskets, weighed and prepared for transport to the buyer. Variant forms of the raised bed method are also shown with water trenches for abundant water. The farmer knew cotton was a heavy water and fertilizer feeder since his grandfather was a cotton farmer. He introduced the use of sardines for fertilizer to shorten growing season. Another page shows an old grandfather supplements family income by rotating a hand powered homemade spinning wheel. The last picture is of the cotton market, with coolies moving great numbers of bailed cotton to waiting barges, others unload the horses. * ABOUT OKURA NAGATSUNE: An excellent essay on him and this title by the late Prof. R.C. Rudolph is found in Okura's SEI-YU ROKU: ON OIL MANUFACTURING [1974], Olearius which is an English translation of the original 1836 edition on pp 67-70. In this Prof. Rudolph points out Okura's origins as the son of a cotton farmer, who witnessed the suffering of the crop failures in 1883 & 1787. This work was an improvement over his predecessor's landmark study: NOGYO ZENSHO: GENERAL TREATISE ON AGRICULTURE published in 1696 by Miyazaki Antei. Okura added his own observations on the sexuality of the cotton plant by use of a microscope submitting very accurate drawings of the various parts. He also extolled the good results of using different fertilizers, irrigation, cotton ginning and seed selection. * Another fascinating and highly informative essay on Okura is found in a book edited by A.M. Craig et al: PERSONALITY IN JAPANESE HISTORY, pp.127-154 by Thomas C. Smith. Wherein Smith outlines more about this "technologist" and hitherto unsung hero-champion of the common farmer in Japan. The metaphor that best suits Okura was: "Farming was like an illness that could be cured by proper treatment" and Okura fancied himself the doctor ! * A most valuable contribution to the agriculture genre by Japan's pre-eminent agriculture technologist.

        SPOTTED OR CANADA GROUSE. [SPRUCE GROUSE]

      London, 1833. Sheet size: 37 3/4 x 25 3/8 inches. Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears, else very good. A fine print of one of the rarer and very elusive game- birds of the northern States. A group of two male and two female Spruce Grouse (Canachites canadiensis) are shown on the edge of undergrowth that includes painted trilliam and twisted- stalk. They all look warily about, the male in the foreground takes fright at an imagined danger. "Audubon went to the state of Maine to observe the habits of this dark, secretive grouse and, although he succeeded, the task, he admitted, was perhaps as severe as any he ever undertook. 'These breeding grounds,' he wrote, 'I cannot better describe than by telling you that the larch forests, which are there called "Hackmetack Woods," are as difficult to traverse as the most tangled swamp of Labrador...We sunk at every step or two up to the waist, our legs stuck in the mire and our bodies squeezed between the dead trunks and branches of trees, the minute leaves of which insinuated among my clothes, and nearly blinded me...We saved our guns from injury, however, and seeing some of the Spruce Partridge before they perceived us, we procured several specimens.' There is some evidence that the spruce grouse may not be as abundant today as it was in earlier times. It is no longer easy to find, at least in the southern parts of its range" - Peterson.

        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.

        Tulipe de Gesner / Tulipa Gesneriana

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Good condition apart from mild soiling, mostly marginal. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. This tulip was named after Conrad Gessner (1516-65), a polymath who published the first scientific description and depiction of a tulip in 1561. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.'

        A Map of Worcester Shire Town of the County of Worcester

      [Worcester]: Published by C. Harris, 1833. 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." 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.

        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 Provenance: E.A. Bradford (early pencilled signature to front pastedown); Sarah F. Bradford (inscription) 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).

        A MANUSCRIPT LETTER DATED OCTOBER 12, 1833 WRITTEN BY [CAPT.] MATTHEW C. PERRY,

      [New York 1833, U.S. Navy Yard]. A hand written holographic. letter in pen from Perry to Lineham, double folded letter,. 19.5 x 25 cm., boldly signed "M.C. Perry Commanding Officer". with verso showing date "Oct.12th 1833 From Capt. Perry...". AN ORIGINAL PENNED LETTER IN PERRY'S HANDWRITING This is a very nice example of Perry's boldly written letter written to one of his officers. The text reads: "Sir, You will be pleased to transfer to the receiving ship Nicolas Lineham a boy now on board the Sch. Shark. I have oriented Lt. Mc Cluney to send on board of your request to complete the complement allowed to a schooner, one seaman, one ord'y seaman & two boys. Resp'fy, M.C. PERRY, Com'dg Officer prv. hem..." With an additional note at the bottom in his hand. Perry [1794-1858] was an American naval office, who command- ed the expedition that established United States relations with Japan. Born April 10, 1794, in South Kingston, Rhode Island, the brother of Oliver Hazard Perry, he began his naval career as midshipman at the age of 15. He advanced to lieutenant in 1813 and to commander in 1826. He supervised the construction of the first naval steamship, the Fulton, and upon its completion in 1837,he took command with the rank of captain. He was promoted to commodore in 1842. In 1846-47 he commanded the Gulf squadron during the Mexican War. In 1853, Perry was sent to Japan, a country that had been closed to outsiders since the 17th century. On July 8, he led a squadron of four ships into Tokyo Bay & present- ed representatives of the Emperor with the text of a propos- ed commercial and friendship treaty. To give the reluctant Japanese court time to consider the offer, he then sailed for China. With an even more powerful fleet, he returned to Japan in February 1854. The treaty, signed on March 31, 1854 provided that humane treatment be extended to sailors ship- wrecked in Japanese territory, that U.S. ships be permitted to buy coal in Japan, and that the ports of Shimoda & Hako- date be opened to U. S. commerce. Perry's mission ended Japan's 400 years of self-imposed isolation, a prerequisite for its subsequent development into a modern nation. Perry died in New York City on March 4, 1858.

        E-HON TOSHISEN GOGON ZEKKU: SELECTIONS OF ILLUSTRATED TANG POEMS [618-907] IN TH

      [Tokyo 1833, Kosanbo]. Stitched blue wrs., covers rubbed,one. title slip in facsimile, 2 vol. set: 19 + 18 double leaves,. 56 + 53 illustrations [109] in all, woodblock printed, very. good impression, 16.5 x 24 cm., unnumbered volumes. R A R E. STUNNING CHINESE POEMS ILLUSTRATED BY THE EMINENT HOKUSAI STYLE OF THE PAINTINGS: Zekku [Chueh-chu]; Ritsu [lu]; Ko-shi [ku-shih]; Zekku consists of four verses, please see Toda for more details on the structure of these Chinese poems of the Tang dynasty. The Japanese admired and idealized Chinese art, poetry and emulated many of their most famous works. This is a superb example of Hokusai's respect and appreciation of Chinese art and poetry. * HOKUSAI: This title is signed "Zen Hokusai Iitsu." Per Roberts, Hokusai used over 50 studio names [Go], see below for additional notes. *** CHINESE Pinyin: Artist's Name in Chinese: QIAN BEI SHU [WEI YI WENG HUA.] Chinese title: HUA BENG TANG SHI XIAN WU YUAN JUE JU. *** OBSCURE EDITION: This title as drawn by Hokusai is not clearly documented in this edition except where referred to by Kerlin. There does not seem to be any other citation to the Meiji edition, and the other bibliographies only cite earlier editions, but with very little reference to Hokusai's contribution to two of the volumes in the larger set drawn by other artists. We believe that our set published during the Meiji period represents a "lost work" of Hokusai illustrated books. *** CONDITION: The volumes are bound in the original blue paper covers. There is ample rubbing to the covers, one volume has the title slip in facsimile. The contents of volume 1 from the 6th leaf to the end being with mild stain, getting stronger by the end, with some old mildew throughout. Purple mildew begins from leaf 6 and gets worse towards the end. Volume 2 also has a similar stain from leaf 12 to the end. Regardless of the condition, this is an exceptionally R A R E book with strong registry and excellent printing. This title has seldom come to market. * ORIGINAL PRINTED PAPER SLEEVE/COVERS: There is a very rare woodblock-printed protective sleeve in which these two volumes were originally containd when issued from the publisher. There are mends where the papers were joined and then separated when originally made. There are substantial purple mildew and other stains on both the front and back. Else complete as issued. See our website for an image of this as illus12.jpg. * ***** BIBLIOGRAPHY: H. Kerlen: CATALOGUE OF PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE BOOKS AND MAPS IN PUBLIC COLLECTIONS IN THE NETHERLANDS, number 1769, p.742-744. He cites this Meiji edition as illustrated by Hokusai. We can not find very many other bibliographic citations for this edition elsewhere, only other similar titles per below. * K. Toda: THE RYERSON COLLECTION OF JAPANESE AND CHNESE ILLUSTRATED BOOKS, p.174 cites "Yehon Toshi-sen THE ILLUSTRATED TOSHI-SEN," see the last paragraph about this, where in Toda states: "This is an early Japanese publication of this book in an illustrated form. There were many "Yehon Toshi-sen" published later. One illustrated by Hokusai is the most famous." . This citation refers to the book we here describe. Toda then refers to "Yehon Toshi-sen" on page 259 from the top. "The series which we have here, is a later publication, and undoubtedly, the best Japanese work of this kind." He described a 6 volume set, not illustrated by Hokusai. Then on page 259-261 Toda lists several of this s ame title by other artists. * Mitchell: THE ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE NANGA, MARUYAMA, SHIJO AND OTHER RELATED SCHOOLS OF JAPAN: A Bibliography, pp.535-536, for related editions. * J. Hillier: THE ART OF HOKUSAI IN BOOK ILLUSTRATION: see index on p.287 entry: TOSHISEN EHON GOGON-ZEKKU; see also p.278, #238, for edition published in 1833 in 5 volumes; then see text pages 232-234, with plates 216-218 illustrating a double-page from this title [though these plates are not in our set] they came from the 1822 edition. Hillier further states on p.234 "It was at this date [1832] that Hokusai was invited to illustrate the two final parts of the monumental publishing undertaking." [meaning to publish this title by other artists in 5 volumes]. The seventh and final parts probably meaning the last 2 volumes after volumes 5 were by illulstrated by Hokusai. Our copy is a later edition of these two volumes. * Holloway pp.13-14, see illustration #114 * KSM: Kanshi, Kaiga 67-49-4 * Kraft. vol. 1, no.747 * L.P.

        [EXECUTIVE DOCUMENTS FOR THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES]

      Washington: Gales & Seaton, 1833 - 1834. First Edition. Hardcover. Occasional foxing and toning to the text. The signature is strong and clear, the binding Fine. Thick (3") octavo recently bound in brown morocco leather-backed marbled boards with matching morocco corners and a red morocco spine label. Documents from the 23rd Congress, First Session, 1833-4 containing approximately a thousand pages with each document paged individually. James Polk's copy with his full SIGNATURE including middle initial on the top of the first page, the Index. At the time of publication, Polk was a member of the House of Representatives from 1825 to 1839, serving as Speaker of the House from 1835 to 1839, the only Speaker eventually to be elected president. He was a staunch supporter of President Andrew Jackson and supported Jackson's positions on a number of bills included here, most notably leading the fight in the House against the recharter of the Bank of the United States, exposing its financial weakness. Polk was appointed chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee in December 1833, when these documents begin. The first "dark horse" candidate in presidential history, Polk was nominated on the 9th ballot at the Democratic convention and narrowly defeated Henry Clay in the Presidential election of 1844 becoming, at the age of 49, the youngest president to date. Vowing to serve only one term, he was possibly the least corrupt and most effective president in American history, having established an independent treasury, confronted the British, conquered Mexico, and seized the western third of the North American continent creating the land mass that would ultimately become the contiguous United States. Included is a 1992 letter from the Executive Director of the Tennessee Historical Society de-accessioning the volume. Books from Polk's library are quite uncommon.

        Die Durchschneidung der Archillessehne, als Heilmethode des Klumpfusses, oder durch zwei Fälle erläutert (pp.195-218, mit 1 gefalteten, doppelblattgr. Kupfertafeln).

      - Rust's Magazin, 39. - Berlin, Georg Reimers, 8°, 1833, 582 pp., mit 2 Kupferstichtafeln, Pappband d. Zeit; gutes Exemplar. Paradigmawechsel: Beginn der modernen Orthopädie - ERSTE AUSGABE. Originalbericht über eine der großen Pionierleistungen der modernen Orthopädie, der subkutanen Tenotomie. 5 Jahre! vor dem Erscheinen seiner berühmten Arbeit "Beiträge zur operativen Orthopädie, Hannover 1835", berichtet Georg Friedrich Stromeyer (1804-1867) hier erstmalig über seine am 28. Febr. 1831 durchgeführte Operation an dem 19-jährigen Georg Ehlers, sowie über die zweite Operation vom 12. Juni 1832. Ganz offen erwähnt Stromeyer die Verdienste von Delpech. Die Erfolge Strohmeyers waren wesentlich in seiner Nachbehandlung (Extensions-Apparate) begründet. Die Operation allein führte zu keiner Heilung des Übels. -Es ist heute überhaupt nicht vorstellbar wie hilflos die Ärzte Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts dem Klumpfuß gegenüber standen. "Noch im Jahre 1835 wurden in einer deutschen chirurgischen Klinik Klumpfüße amputiert und der Dirigent sprach den Satz aus, wahre Klumpfüße werden nicht geheilt und müssen amputiert werden!" Nur so ist es verständlich mit welcher Begeisterung die neue Methode überall aufgenommen wurde. Die subkutane Durchschneidung der Achillessehne war ein neuer Hoffnungstrahl, an dem sich Tausende Unglücklicher, die sich bisher mit ihrem Schicksal abfinden mußten, aufrichteten.

        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, in the common version, with amendments of the language by Noah Webster.

      New Haven: Durrie & Peck; Sold by Hezekiah Howe & Co., and by N. & J. White 8vo (23 cm; 9"). xvi, 907 pp.. 1833 First edition of the Bible in English (Authorized Version) tailored for American readers by Noah Webster (1758?-1843). "His purpose was to remove obsolete words and those offensive to delicacy" (Rumball-Petre), Webster himself further stipulating, "To avoid giving offense to any denomination of christian [sic], I have not knowingly made any alteration to the passages of the present version, on which the different denominations rely for the support of their peculiar tenets" (Preface, p. iv). Webster further explains that the purpose of his revisions is to make the language clearer and purer so as to not "divert the mind from the matter to the language of the scriptures, and thus, in a degree, frustrate the purpose of giving instruction" (Preface, p. xvi). Webster considered his work on the revision of the Bible more important than that on the dictionary and was sorely disappointed at the Bible's poor reception among all levels of readers. Provenance: 19th-century ownership signatures of Luther P. Hubbard (undated) and R.T. Hall (1894); after ca. 1954 in The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Publisher's sheep, spine dry and tending to flake; front board once detached and resecured with a cloth tape repair at the hinge (inside). Foxing as usual. Priced to encourage better repair to its binding, this is a complete, sound copy.

        EL EXMO. SR. VICE-PRESIDENTE DE LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS MEXICANOS SE HA SERVIDO DIRIGIRME EL DECRETO QUE SIGUE [caption title]

      Mexico. Aug. 17, 1833.. [2]pp. on single folded sheet. Folio. Some worming to first outer leaf and gutter. Very clean. Very good. This document is a decree from the Vice President of los Estados-Unidos Mexicos distributed to the parishes of Alta and Baja California. It states the government's intention to secularize the parishes in order to regain the attentions and loyalties of the native community. This move sought to make the local parishes smaller and return land to the natives. It also includes details of payment to each parish, to be used as aid to the community. These actions by the government were a last ditch attempt to convert the native communities to Spanish ways and to gain their allegiance to the crown.

        Vorstellung höchst vollkommen dressirter Hunde. Munito, die Phönixe Europa`s.

      (München, 1833).. Lithographie. Mit zwei kleinen Hunde-Abbildungen und Beschreibung in durchgehend lithographierter Kurrentschrift. Blattgr.: 39 x 23 cm. Um 1818 erschien ein Herr Castelli und führte in ganz Europa den Hund Munito vor, der äußerst ungewöhnliche Kunsttücke beherrscht; u. a. konnte er angeblich buchstabieren, rechnen, Karten und Domino spielen etc. Munito wurde zu einer Sensation, ist aber seit 1824 nicht mehr mit Auftritten belegbar. Ab 1827 erschien ein weiterer Munito auf der Bildfläche, allgemein als "Munito II." in der Literatur bezeichnet. Der erste war ein Wasserspaniel, "Munito II." wird als "schöner weißer Pudel mit Löwenschur" von Eugène Muller in seinem Buch Les Animaux Célèbres bezeichnet; die hier vorliegende Abbildung mag dem entsprechen - sie zeigt einen sitzenden Hund mit einer Karte mit der Nummer 5 im Maul. Rätselhaft sind die Besitzverhältnisse: Der zweite Munito wurde nach einer Mitteilung von J.-F. Bertachon in Notice sur les chiens Munito (1836) von einem Herrn Nief vorgeführt; es muss sich dabei aber nicht zwingend um eine andere Person als Castelli handeln, der eventuell unter diesem neuen Pseudonym ein Comeback mit einem weiteren Hund startete. Vorliegende Bestätigung eines Auftritts am 18. September 1833 in München legitimiert Nief als Besitzer. Der umfangreiche Text preist die Vorzüge des neuen Munitos und anderer Hund und listet die vorzuführenden Tricks auf. - Linker Rand mit kleiner Hinterlegung, sonst sehr gutes Exemplar.

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Philadelphia: Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], 1833. 4 volumes, folio. (15 x 12 inches). 27 hand-colored engraved plates by Alexander Lawson (11 after Titian R. Peale, 15 after A. Rider, and 1 after J.J. Audubon and A. Rider). Extra-illustrated with 5 uncoloured engraved plates in vol. IV. (Usual paper toning in vol. IV, minor offsetting in vols. II-IV, short repaired tear to an uncoloured plate in vol. IV). 19th-century black half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, the compartments bordered in gilt with double fillets, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Provenance: Juliette Clary (inscribed by Bonaparte on the vol. I title, "Offert par l'auteur a sa Cousine Juliette") A very fine set of the first edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, inscribed by Prince Bonaparte to his cousin and with additional uncoloured states of the plates in volume four. Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work. "A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States." "The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I..." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson ). That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time. Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This fine set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume. We are aware of the existence of only one other inscribed set of Bonaparte's Ornithology to have appeared on the market in the last 30 years, inscribed to the Count Charles de Chatillon. Anker 47; Bennett 16; Coues 1:609; Ellis/Mengel 312a-b; Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 78; Nissen IVB 116; Sabin 6264; Wood 247; Zimmer p.64.
