        LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS

      1834. Very Good. GODWIN, William. LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS: or, an account of the most eminent persons in successive ages, who have claimed for themselves, or to whom has been imputed by others, the exercise of magical power. London: Frederick J. Mason, 1834. First edition. lxx,465 pp. Octavo. Expertly rebacked nineteenth-century binding; bound in quarter black calf, with the original spine laid-down, grey cloth sides, red spine label, all edges speckled red. Occasional light pencil marks and brief pencil notes in margins, else very clean. The cloth is lightly spotted, the fore-corners are gently bumped, and the top-edge is dust-soiled; nonetheless, it is an attractive and solid copy. Very good plus. Godwin's stated purpose for writing this book was "to exhibit a fair delineation of the credulity of the human mind." He begins his survey with an account of ancient superstitions and ends it with the New England witch trials at the end of the seventeenth century. It is the last work Godwin published in his lifetime.

        Svenska fornsånger.

      En samling af kämpavisor, folk-visor, lekar och dansar, samt barn- och vall-sånger. I-III. Sthlm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1834-42. 8:o. XXIII,(1 blank),424,(32) + XVI,482,(48) + XXVI,562 s. + ARWIDSSON, ADOLF IWAR. Prenumerations anmälan. [=rubrik]. Sthlm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1832. 4:o. (1) s. Tre fina samtida lätt nötta hfrbd med breda upphöjda bind, rikt guldornerade och blindpressade ryggar. Gula snitt. Ryggen till del II aningen mera nött och ryggen till den tredje delen med ngt avvikande men snarlik ryggdekor. Delvis lätt lagerfläckiga inlagor med enstaka fuktfläckar. Titelbladen ngt lagerfläckiga, till del I-II endast i marginalen. En liten pappersförlust i yttre marginalen på s. 37 i del III. Anmälans är vikt och dess nederdel, där prenumeranter skulle teckna sig, är bortklippt. Stilig svit på bättre och tjockare papper med L. F. Rääfs exlibris.. Arwidsson hade sedan 1827 i samarbete med L. F. Rääf planlagt vad som skulle bli "Svenska fornsånger", trots att Rääf upplevde sig ha dåliga erfarenheter av att låta utomstående ta del av sina samlingar. Arbetet drog ut på tiden och det dröjde till den 11 maj 1832 innan en prenumerationsanmälan trycktes. I denna uppger Arwidsson att hans arbete ska utgöra "ett slags fortsättning" på Geijers och Afzelius "Svenska folk-visor" och huvudsakligen innehålla L. F. Rääfs och J. Wallmans samlingar, "frukter af långvariga och oförtrutna bemödanden." I ett brev från Rääf till Arwidsson daterat bara 15 dagar efter prenumerationsanmälan framgår att Rääf deltog aktivt i värvandet av subskribenter. Han betonade att anmälan borde delas ut frikostigare och helst vara mer utförlig i sin beskrivning av projektet, "den borde omständligare utvecklas uti något tidningsblad, hvaraf exemplar skulle åtfölja listorna". I förordet till del I framhålls "den bekanta Rääfska samlingen, allmänt känd, bland älskare af våra fornqväden, såsom, i sitt slag, inom vårt land den rikaste till innehåll och mångfald." Rääfs nära samarbete med Arwidsson framgår även av Rääfs otryckta självbiografi där han om "Svenska fornsånger" skriver att "hvarje ark lemnades till min granskning". Första delen recenserades i förhållandevis uppskattande ordalag av Geijer i första numret av "Swenska litteratur-föreningens tidning" 1835

        Pinnated Grouse [Greater Prairie-Chicken] [Plate 186]

      London: R. Havell, [1834]. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1834." Fine gilt frame. 25 3/8 x 38 1/2 inches. One of Audubon's greatest images from the elephant folio first edition of The Birds of America. Set against a background of meadows with hills in the distance, this dramatic image depicts two male Great Prairie Chickens fighting for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment, perhaps after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males launches a physical attack on the rival cock. The female looks on with shy fascination. This plate is among Audubon's most carefully-balanced compositions, with the bulk of the left hand bird offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. Audubon would write of this bird: "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri ... As soon as the snows have melted away ... the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more ... Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly ... to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled ... see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which ... lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed ... the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages ...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes ...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. V, pp.95- 96). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.117.

        PINNATED GROUSE [GREATER PRAIRIE-CHICKEN]. [Pl. 186]

      London: R. Havell, 1834.. Handcolored engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell. Watermarked: "J. Whatman/1834." Sheet size: 25 3/8 x 38 1/2 inches. From the first edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. One of Audubon's greatest images: against a background of western prairie land, a small incident of the greatest importance to its participants takes place in the immediate foreground. Two cock Pinnated Grouse (or Great Prairie Chickens) fight for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment when, after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males, driven beyond endurance, launches a physical attack on his rival. The female looks on with fascination. A carefully balanced composition -- the bulk of the left hand bird is offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri...As soon as the snows have melted away...the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more...Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly...to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled...see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which...lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed...the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" - Audubon. At the time Audubon was writing, the Greater Prairie Chicken had already all but vanished from the eastern states. It was "still abundant on the main western prairies, but this too was to change, mainly because the bird could not adapt to modern agricultural practices. When the native prairie vegetation was eliminated they soon disappeared. Today the remaining populations, much restricted, are carefully managed. An organization in Wisconsin...is dedicated to purchasing, preserving, and managing remaining prairie chicken habitat" - Peterson.

        THE ANIMAL KINGDOM. Arranged According to its Organization, Serving as a Foundation for the Natural History of Animals, and an Introduction to comparative Anatomy. With Figures Designed After Nature: the Crustacea, Arachnides & Insecta, by M. Latreille

      London: G Henderson, 1834 This is the 4 volume edition of Cuvier's famous work and is now becoming very scarce, no doubt due to sets being broken for the illustrations. This set is in fair condition. It is in what looks to be the publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles, and has 695 hand coloured plates, 43 black and white plates (of which 8 are folding) and 5 black and white portraits (4 as frontispieces). Overall the bindings are inelegant and worn but sound. The contents have some browning - mainly to text pages (this looks to be due to paper quality) and there is the occasional loose leaf. All have a frontispiece portrait, decorative title page dated 1837 and second title page dated 1834 in Vols I-III, and 1836 in Vol IV. Vol I has 174 colour plates, and 17 b/w plates. There is water-staining to the frontispiece portrait of Baron Cuvier, and to the decorative title page. Page 171 and Plate 48 are detached with crinkling to edges. Many of the text pages have brown staining but the plates are generally very clean and brightly coloured. This volume covers Mammals and Birds. Vol II has 189 colour plates and 12 b/w plates of which 8 are folding. There is some marking to the frontispiece portrait of Buffon and to the decorative title page. Some text pages have browning and there is a lot of offsetting of the images onto the back of the preceding page. This volume covers reptiles and fish. The fish are particularly brightly coloured - the red colour is the main culprit in the offsetting. Vol III has 216 colour plates. The same browning can be seen to portrait of Audubon and to the decorative title page. Some text sections have browning. There is occasional spotting to the plates. The quality of the plate paper varies: some are quite thick; others are the same thickness as the text pages. This volume covers molluscs, annelids, crustaceans, arachnids and insects. Vol IV has 2 portraits: of Latreille and Linnaeus. It has 116 colour plates and 14 b/w plates. The b/w plates have water staining. The portraits and the decorative title page have browning. Some page edges have been turned over. This volume covers insects and zoophytes.

        West Point, from above Washington Valley looking down the River

      New York: Parker & Clover, 1834. Hand-coloured aquatint after George Cooke. In good condition, but laid onto thin wove paper. 20 1/8 x 27 1/16 inches. First state of this spectacular image of the Hudson and West Point: focusing 'on the beauty of the Hudson River and the mountains that border it on either side ... a celebration of nature, highlighting the ever-changing drama staged by mountains, water, and sky' (Deak) William James Bennett (c. 1787-1844) was born in England and received his training at the Royal Academy. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. With the arrival of William Bennett and several other émigré artists such as William Guy Wall, and John Hill, the quality of aquatint engraving in America was elevated to a level equaling, or perhaps even surpassing, that of European printmakers. This print was published at the beginning of an important period in the history of American topographical-view making. 'Bennett etched four prints after paintings by George Cooke (1793-1849) in his series of views of American cities ... American-born George Cooke was a prolific painter of portraits, views, and historical subjects. He painted this scene of West Point in 1832 after he had left New York ... for .. the Catskill mountains' (Deak William James Bennett p.78). 'Cooke benefited from the remarkable craftsmanship of ... Bennett, who endowed the rendering with a radiant quality' (Deak Picturing America p.277). R.A.

        Pinnated Grouse [Greater Prairie-Chicken] [Plate 186]

      London: R. Havell, [1834]. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1834." Fine gilt frame. 25 3/8 x 38 1/2 inches. One of Audubon's greatest images from the elephant folio first edition of The Birds of America. Set against a background of meadows with hills in the distance, this dramatic image depicts two male Great Prairie Chickens fighting for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment, perhaps after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males launches a physical attack on the rival cock. The female looks on with shy fascination. This plate is among Audubon's most carefully-balanced compositions, with the bulk of the left hand bird offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. Audubon would write of this bird: "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri ... As soon as the snows have melted away ... the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more ... Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly ... to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled ... see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which ... lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed ... the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages ...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes ...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. V, pp.95- 96). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.117.

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. “In 1830 [T.H. Lister] married Teresa Villiers, whose brother George became Earl of Clarendon. Teresa’s engagement to Henry Fox, son of Lord Holland, had been broken off by his parents’ interference, although Teresa was much admired and was said to be brilliantly clever. Deeply attached to Fox, in the next four years she refused numerous proposals before accepting Henry Lister” (Alison Adburgham, Silver Fork Society, pp. 93-94).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.).On the title is a thought-provoking epigraph from Benjamin Constant (from his novel Adolphe (1816-1819)?): “Un ouvrage d'imagination ne doit pas avoir un bût moral, mais un résultat moral. Il doit ressembler, à cet égard, à la vie humaine, qui n'a pas un bût, mais qui toujours a un résultat dans lequel la morale trouve nécessairement sa place.”Mrs. Lister’s novel was “edited by” another accomplished lady of the day (and correspondent of Jane Austen’s), Frances Talbot Parker, Countess of Morley.Sadleir 1441.

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

      "...the perpetuity & prospering of the people of this union depend upon the ascendancy of Democratic principles..." Buchanan served as U.S. minister to Russia during Andrew Jackson's 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 party's 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. "I 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-law's 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.
