        Spécies Général et Iconographie des Coquilles Vivantes, comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna et les decouvertes récentes des Voyageurs.

      - Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 13). Royal-8vo. With 902 (5 in coloured copies) fine handcoloured engraved plates. Later speckled calf with 2 red gilt lettered labels. One of the most desirable works on shells. It was published over a period of almost half a century and especially the last 27 parts published by P. Fischer from 1873-1879 are rare. In the monograph on the Turbo by Fischer published in 1873 the text (128 pages) is in a recent reprint as well as plates 37-42. The 11 page text of the genus Phasianella is also in a reprint. Some plates of the genus Turbo have been trimmed with some slight loss of the illustration. A few plates have the upper right corner very slightly chipped.Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Spécies .' This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned.Provenance: With the occasional stamp of Richard I. Johnson.Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Manual for the Use of Visiters [sic] to the Falls of Niagara: Intended as an Epitome of, and Temporary Substitute for, a Larger and More Extended Work, Relative to this Most Stupendous Wonder of the World

      Buffalo, NY: Printed for the Author, by Charles Faxon. 1834. First Edition. Printed wrappers. 72pp. Light blue original wrappers. Quite likely the first guide about the Falls. Includes sections on Routes to the Falls; Directions to Visiters [sic]; Historical Notices; The Falls (Situation, Latitude, etc.); The Islands, Bridges, Staircases, etc.; Interesting Objects of Visit; Aboriginal Remains; Battle Grounds, Forts, etc. "The first guide-book to Niagara Falls was published in 1834, though for many years the travelers' hand-books and tour-books had contained a good deal relative to the Niagara region, both historical and descriptive. Horatio A. Parsons published a Niagara guide in this year, and claimed it was the first book of the kind. Ingraham's book appeared in July, and was the outcome of studies he had begun in 1833. It was a thoroughly original work, not the least useful feature being a list of 135 works which he had consulted, ranging in date from 1660 to 1833 -- the first bibliography of the Niagara region... In the 'advertisement' of the Niagara 'Manual', dated 'Niagara Falls, July 1, 1834,' Mr. Ingraham says: 'I would have had this little tract printed on better paper, if it could have been procured in this vicinity; but it may add some interest to the book, in the eyes of visitors, to be informed, that the paper on which it is printed, was manufactured at the Falls; and the waters of the Niagara, are intimately blended with its every fibre.'" Publications of the Buffalo Historical Society Vol. VI, ed. Frank H. Severance, 1903, p. 572. This copy with the inserted postscript facing the title page in which Mr. Ingraham reports the first exploration of the Cave of the Winds on July 15th. Mild chipping to corners and spine ends, small tape mend to spine. A very good+ copy. Scarce. Howes I51. Sabin 34778. ; 18mo .

        Autograph Letter, signed ("N Webster"), to Mr. Chandler

      New Haven, novr 28, 1834. 4to. 1 p. Framed . In 1806 Webster published his first dictionary, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, which was a concise dictionary intended for adults containing 37,000 words - a precursor of his great dictionary of 1828. He then published an abridgement of the Compendious Dictionary for use in schools in 1807 (and again in 1817), with the hope that the proceeds from sales of these and from his school books would provide the necessary funding for his great project, an entirely new "Complete Dictionary," which, he thought would require only a few years of labor. The last revision of his dictionary was issued in 1840 and would have contained the words alluded to in this letter. This letter reads in part "I intend this winter to revise my large dictionary & add such improvements as experience & observations have suggested. I am told that there are many words used in the arts that are not found in Dictionaries, English or American -"

Edited by the Countess of Morley. In Three Volumes. London: Printed for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman, 1834.First edition of Lady Lewis’s only novel.

Smooth spines decoratively tooled in gilt and blind with two dark green morocco gilt lettering labels. Marbled edges. Light rubbing to extremities. Some light foxing and browning, occasional soiling. Early ink armorial ownership stamp (of Viscount Esher?) on front pastedown of each volume. A very good, fresh copy.First edition of this intriguing and overlooked "silver fork" novel by the wife of T.H. Lister, whose Granby is perhaps the definitive example of the genre, which was "fashionable in the late-1820s and 1830s. Frequently set in the Regency, it was at once escapist in describing former elegance and glitter, anticipating the genre of the Regency Romance, and censorious in judging the frivolities and often supercilious emphasis on the aesthetic rather than the moral that characterized aristocratic high society" (The Victorian Web).Lady Maria Theresa Lewis (1803-1865), "biographer, was only daughter of George Villiers, third son of Thomas Villiers, first earl of Clarendon, by his wife, Theresa Parker, daughter of the first Lord Boringdon. George Frederick William Villiers, fourth earl of Clarendon, the well-known statesman, was her brother, and she was granted the precedence of an earl’s daughter February 1839. She was born on 8 March 1803, and married for the first time, on 6 Nov. 1830, Thomas Henry Lister, who died in 1842. On 26 Oct. 1844 she married her second husband, Sir George Cornewall Lewis, bart. Lady Theresa had a taste for literature. She was descended in the female line from Edward Hyde, the great earl of Clarendon, whose life was written by her first husband, and in 1852 she published in three volumes ‘The Lives of the Friends and Contemporaries of Lord Chancellor Clarendon;’ the book gives biographies of most of the people whose portraits were to be found in the Clarendon gallery at The Grove, Watford, which had descended successively to her father and brother; the lives of Lord Falkland, Lord Capel, and the Marquis of Hertford occupy the greater part of the volumes. Miss Mary Berry was so well impressed with the undertaking that she bequeathed her papers to Sir Thomas Frankland Lewis, Lady Theresa's father-in-law, with the proviso that in the event of his death they were to go to Lady Theresa. Accordingly, in 1865 was published in three volumes ‘Extracts of the Journals and Correspondence of Miss Berry from the year 1783 to 1852,’ edited by Lady Theresa Lewis. The work is judiciously done. Lady Lewis also edited a novel by the Hon. Emily Eden, and dramatised two fairy tales for juvenile performers. She survived her husband two years, and died 9 Nov. 1865, at the principal's lodgings, Brasenose College, Oxford" (D.N.B.).Sadleir 1441. Wolff 4155. [Attributes: First Edition]

A very good set of the first two supplements. (Bibliographical note. It is unlikely that many if any other copies have survived in the original parts, at least not in this condition, and therefore this is an historically and bibliographically important collection. It is only comparatively recently that such works were issued in their complete form, historically it was the norm for them to be published in parts over a period of time and then, when complete, for the purchaser to have them bound up. Anthony Gepp writing in the Journal of Botany 1906 vol XLIV, says ".people were so short sighted and so unaware of their duty to posterity that they were accustomed to destroy the paper covers of books at the time of binding and this evil practice prevailed even in the best regulated libraries. The consequence is that it is now extremely difficult to find out the date of publication of any particular part of a work of that period.") Size: Small 4to [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      [Mexico. Feb. 4, ]. 1834 - Broadsheet, 8 x 11 1/2 inches, integral blank leaf present. Dampstain in lower right corner, light fold lines. Clean. Very good. An important decree by vice president and temporary acting president of Mexico, Valentin Gomez Farias, for the relief of oppressed citizens and unemployed soldiers. This act reiterates the intentions of a similar April 6, 1830 decree which stated the government's wish to relieve suffering caused by the country's disorganized administration by helping citizens take up government lands in Coahuila and Texas. This February 1834 act was in turn reinforced by an April 11, 1834 act which clarified the administration of such new colonies as might appear. Quite rare. "Streeter locates only one copy besides his own. A highly interesting decree.Here we learn that preference will be shown to soldiers and politicians thrown out of work by the termination of the revolution" - Eberstadt. STREETER TEXAS 812.

        Epsom Races. (PAIR) Now they're off To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Start for the Derby Stakes. [and] Here they come. To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Horses passing Tattenham Corner for the Derby Stakes.

      S. & J. Fuller, London 1834 - A fine pair of images capturing the excitement of the start and final turn during the running of one of the five Classic English horse races This sequence of plates depicting two moments in the Derby Stakes could hardly be more exciting. In Now They're Off , anticipation is over, the fierce, thundering movement has begun. In Here They Come , the final stretch is ahead. The horses appear to be moving more quickly than at the beginning. The cheering crowd is jammed against the inner railing, and spectators are riding madly to witness the finish.In fact, a number have fallen off their horses and are sailing through the air. It all takes place on a beautiful afternoon, sky is blue, there are hills in the distance. But all attention is riveted to horses and riders as they go all out for victory. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeple-chasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day. [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.150 (2 prints in the series); cf. Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.46 (variant title). Aquatints, printed in colours and finished by hand, by R.W. Smart and C. Hunt.

"Jules Desportes was a lithographic printer of note who founded and managed the first lithographic trade journal, 'Le Lithographe, journal des artistes et des imprimeurs' (Paris and Rotterdam, 1837-48). he exercised an important influence on French lithography in the 1830s and 1840s, and his 'Manuel pratique du lithographe' provides the best example I know of the work of a lithographic printer who used the process of lithography to produce his own book."â€"Twyman.

        James Buchanan: The United States Needs to Be Governed by the Democratic Party

      - Ò.the perpetuity & prospering of the people of this union depend upon the ascendancy of Democratic principles.Ó Buchanan served as U.S. minister to Russia during Andrew JacksonÕs administration, then was U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania from 1834-1845. In 1844, he and Lewis Cass challenged former President Van Buren for the Democratic presidential nomination. When it became clear that the convention was deadlocked, Jackson protege James K. Polk was put forth as a "dark horse" candidate, and he ended up as the partyÕs nominee. Recognizing Buchanan's support of the ticket and Pennsylvania's contribution to his election, Polk appointed Buchanan Secretary of State. Buchanan remained in office for Polk's full term, and was closely associated with the administration's leading measures, particularly the annexation of Oregon and the Mexican War. It was a foregone conclusion that Buchanan would seek the 1848 nomination. Autograph Letter Signed as Secretary of State, marked "Private," Washington, May 20, 1847, to Philadelphia Democrat George Guier (who was apparently not one of his supporters), discussing his political goals and stating his philosophy that the Democrats are the party that most benefits the nation. ÒI ought long ago to have acknowledged the receipt of your favor of the 30th ultimo.The truth is that business of the Department is so incessant & pressing that I am compelled to neglect my private correspondents. Why did you not write to me on the subject of your son-in-lawÕs appointment as a second lieutenant. I should most cheerfully have sustained his application. Although you and I have not been as good friends as I could desire, yet I have always justly appreciated your services & merits as a Democrat. Of this I could long since have given you proof had I not supposed my motives might have been mistaken. I am now encouraged to drop this hint only by the kind tone of your letter. You subscribed yourself my friend, and as you have never yet been charged with hypocracy, I accept the pledge with all my heart. All I desire of you in this character is that you shall think & speak as kindly of me as I do of you. I have no ambitious aspirations beyond that of a desire to obtain & preserve the good opinion of my fellow citizens. Your friendship for me will not, therefore, cost you much. We shall never quarrel about your Presidential preferences; because I know you will never support any candidate unless he be a good Democrat. A long experience in public life has convinced me that the perpetuity & prospering of the people of this union depend upon the ascendancy of Democratic principles in the administration of their Government. I shall, therefore, be in favor of that man for President, whoever he may be, best calculated to secure this ascendancy. Let us, therefore, shake hands & be good friends hereafter." Failing to receive the presidential nomination in 1848 or 1852, Buchanan was appointed minister to Britain by President Franklin Pierce. This meant that he was out of the country from 1853-1856, and did not have to stake out a position on sectional flare-ups over the Kansas-Nebraska Act, the fugitive slave law, and the organization of the Kansas Territory. Having offended no one North or South, he was admirably situated to capture the Democratic nomination in 1856. So in the end, he obtained the prize he so long sought - the presidency - only to find himself at the center of the gargantuan storm of secession and its prelude, through which he was unable to navigate.

        Bewick's Swan [Plate XLVII]

      [Edinburgh 1834 - A beautiful print of a swan from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life-size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings, pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      1834 - MANZONI, Alessandro. I PROMESSI SPOSI; OR, THE BETROTHED LOVERS. A Milanese story of the seventeenth century. As translated for The Metropolitan, from the Italian of Alessandro Manzoni, by G. W. Featherstonhaugh. Washington: Stereotyped and Published by Duff Green. 1834. The "Metropolitan Edition." Possibly the first American edition. (There were two American translations printed in 1834; the other was printed at New York by G. Dearborn.) 8vo.: 249 pp. Text printed in double columns. Contemporary binding; black morocco spine with blind-stamped decoration and gilt-stamped title and year, marbled paper boards. Pencil inscription on ffep. and a contemporary pencil ownership on first flyleaf. Text leaves are mostly clean and quite fresh, showing only some occasional light foxing, and having a faint, shallow dampstain at the top- edge and, for the final 25 ff., at the top fore-corner. The binding is worn at perimeters, especially at corners, and rubbed at surfaces. The top fore-corner of the upper board is missing a small patch of paper. Lower joint is tender and is missing a thin strip of leather (1 1/2 x 1/8") at the head. This is an early translation of Manzoni's panoramic love story set in Milan in the seventeenth century. It is his masterpiece which, upon publication (1825-27), elevated him to the front rank of literary fame. It is still regarded by many Italians as their greatest novel. This is an appealing copy whose condition is very good plus. (American Imprints 25502; Kunitz & Colby)
