        [Drop-head title:] Schoolcraft and Allen – Expedition to North-West Indians.

      Wasington, D.C.: [printed by] Gales & Seaton [for the US War Dept.],, 1834. Letter from the Secretary of War transmitting a Map and Report of Lieut. Allen and H. B. [sic] Schoolcraft's visit to the Northwest Indians in 1832. Octavo. Modern plain paper wrappers. Housed in a custom made green linen chemise and green quarter morocco slipcase, gilt lettered spine. Engraved folding map by Drayton after Allen. Embossed ownership stamp on front cover of Diana Lanier Smith. Map with neat professional repair to short closed-tear, map slightly foxed, letterpress lightly toned, two leaves awkwardly folded at foot. A very good copy. First edition of this scarce pamphlet, which is important for including the "earliest map of the true source of the Mississippi River. [It] depicts Sioux and Chippewa boundary lines as established by the treaty of 1825; Indian villages, towns and placenames; trading posts and portages; the route of Lieutenant Allen. The dividing ridge separating the watersheds of the Mississippi and Red rivers is illustrated by a continuous chain of hills" (Schwartz & Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America, 1980, p. 247). This is the first appearance of Allen's famous map, its later appearance in Schoolcraft's Narrative of an Expedition... to Itasca Lake (1834) was on a smaller scale. "In 1832, ethnologist Henry Schoolcraft organized a multipurpose journey to Minnesota to follow up on the observations he had made while accompanying the 1820 expedition of Lewis Cass, governor of Michigan Territory. As Indian affairs agent to the northern tribes, Schoolcraft was concerned that the frequent Ojibwe-Dakota skirmishes would greatly hinder further settlement of the territories. Lieutenant James Allen, an infantry officer detailed to topographical duty, joined Schoolcraft to make the map and to serve as naturalist. In addition, Schoolcraft had been ordered to conduct a thorough study of the fur trade and to vaccinate the Indians against smallpox. Schoolcraft and Allen, along with Dr. George Houghton and about thirty voyageurs and infantrymen, followed the Cass-Schoolcraft route to the head of Lake Superior. After three weeks, they reached Upper Red Cedar (Cass Lake), where they enlisted the aid of an Ojibwe leader, Oza Windib (Yellow Hand), who generously offered his assistance... The Schoolcraft map shows the expedition beginning at the trading house of the American Fur Company on Big Sandy Lake. the group followed the well-established trading route through the marshes along the Mississippi, north-west to the villages of Leech Lake. The map indicates that the water was high and that the men could actually canoe through the flooded marshes. At Leech Lake, they quickly moved along another well-known route to the headwaters of the Mississippi, finding the west branch first. many features are named, though Lake Itasca is merely called 'the source of the Mississippi.' The map's system of hachuring, or shading with short lines, adds a dramatic effect to the divides between the watersheds of the Red and Mississippi rivers that is not so obvious on the landscape itself. The mapmaker's hachures also exaggerate the heights of land north and west of Lake Superior, which are named the Cabotian Mountains... The map shows a Spirit Lake that is the source of the Rum River and separate from Mille Lacs" (Lanegran & Urness, Minnesota on the Map, 2008, pp. 32-34). From the library of the celebrated collector of early Americana, Thomas Winthrop Streeter, with his discreet oval book label laid-in.

        Illustrations of Political Economy

      [by William Clowes for] Charles Fox, London 1834 - Nine volumes. 12mo. [145 x 90 x 225 mm]. Bound in contemporary half black calf, marbled paper sides, the spines divided into five panels, lettered in the second and numbered in the fourth on burgundy labels, the other panels with a gilt centre tool, buff endleaves, lightly sprinkled edges. (Refurbished where rubbed). [With] Poor Laws and Paupers Illustrated. First Collected Edition. One volume (of two). 12mo. [145 x 90 x 33 mm]. Uniformly bound with above. London: [by W. Clowes for] Charles Fox, 1833. [And] Illustrations of Taxation. First Collected Edition. 12mo. [146 x 85 x 23 mm]. Uniformly bound with above. London: [by W. Clowes for] Charles Fox, 1834. Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) was born in Norwich, the daughter of a textile manufacturer. She was a precocious child, reading Milton by the age of seven and passionately interested in political economy by 14. Her family suffered financial ruin in 1829 and three years later she moved to London to earn her living as a writer. Almost at once she began a series of short didactic novels on social and economic matters. These were issued at monthly intervals and proved enormously successful, some selling as many as 10,000 copies. Her publisher soon realised the possibility of gathering these tales, first issued in printed wrappers, into collected sets, as here. Each of the nine volumes of Illustrations of Political Economy has a general title-page (all dated 1834) and contains two or three tales, totalling 25 in all, each with separate pagination and title-pages, variously dated 1832, 1833 and 1834. As is always the case in collected sets, the earliest titles are reprints. In this set the three stories in vol.1 are the third, second and second editions, but thereafter they are all first editions, which is most unusual. Included with this set are Martineau's two similar but less successful continuations, the first contains three stories (a fourth story, The Land's End is usually found in a separate volume which is not present in this set), and the second has five. These are all first edition sheets, with separate title-pages and pagination, bound up with general titles. There is a little spotting in places but it is a very good set.

        A small collection of 13 items.

      Guayaquil, Quito, San José, & Lima 1834-57 The history of Ecuador during the first generation after achieving independence from Spain was noteworthy for its ever-changing nature: politically part of New Granada, then a separate country; yearnings to be part of Peru; wars against Colombia for ownership of the Cauca region, and war against the Galapagos Islands for ownership of the giant tortoises; the trading off of the presidency between Flores and Rocafuerte; wild swings between rampant anti-clericalism and amicable church-state relations; promulgation of several radically different constitutions; and, finally, the institutionalization of political anarchy beginning in 1845 following the forced exile of President Flores. This offering contains original documents touching on many of these and other matters. All items in good+ or very good condition.

        The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Translated out of the Latin Vulgate, diligently compared with the original Greek, and first published by the English college of Rheims, anno 1582. With the original preface, arguments and tables, marginal notes, and annotations. To which are now added an introductory essay and a complete topical and textual index.

      New York: Jonathan Leavitt 8vo (23 cm; 9"). [1] f., 458 pp.. 1834 (copyright 1833) First edition of this edition prepared for a Protestant audience; issued without a nihil obstat, it claims to be a faithful reprinting of the 1582 Rheims N.T., but it is most certainly not. As Hills explains, "This is a reprint in modernized spelling of the original edition of the Rheims NT, prepared for Protestants. O'Callaghan (p. 233–236) points out a good many errors in spite of the certificate of six clergymen that 'it is an exact and faithful copy of the original work without abridgment or addition, except that the Latin of a few phrases which were translated by the annotators, and some unimportant expletive words were undesignedly omitted'." => A vastly anti-Catholic work in its preface and apparatus, it calls itself "a book of reference for all persons who desire to comprehend genuine Popery." Binding: Publisher's green "contour" moiré cloth over boards with printed paper label on spine. Krupp's style Moi4. Bound as above; rebacked and most of original spine laid downwith hinges (inside) strengthened. Six-digit number stamped in lower margin of one preliminary page; moderate foxing, mostly in margins.

        Deux destinées. Drame en cinq actes.

      J. N. Barba, Libraire, Paris 1834 - In-8 (23 x 15,5 cm) de (8)-178 pp., demi-veau rouge, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre verte, couverture imprimée et dos conservés, entièrement non rogné (Devauchelle). Edition originale tirée à 150 exemplaires. Vignette sur bois gravée par Porret d'après Tony Johannot, tirée sur Chine. Première ouvrage de l'auteur qui finança lui-même l'édition ; la pièce ne fut jamais jouée. « De ses premières pièces de théâtre, Deux destinées (1834) est la seule sur laquelle les archives publiques nous renseignent de façon détaillée. Bien qu'elle paraisse sous l'enseigne de Barba, le bulletin de déclaration de l'imprimeur Duverger indique formellement qu'elle fut imprimée « pour le compte de M. Xavier Forneret ». En outre, le faible chiffre du tirage (150 ex.) tranche sur ceux des oeuvres dramatiques publiées à compte d'éditeur par Barba (350 à 500 ex.). Le compte d'auteur, rétorquera-t-on, est presque de rigueur dans le cas d'une première publication ; et de rappeler les tribulations de Lucien de Rubempré avec ses Marguerites et son Archer de Charles IX. Certes ; mais les circonstances sont ici toutes différentes. Il s'agit d'une oeuvre destinée au théâtre, voie royale de la notoriété littéraire dans les années 1830 ; or les usages de la librairie romantique prévoient que l'édition d'une pièce soit consécutive à sa représentation, et dépende étroitement du succès qu'elle remporte. Non seulement ce n'est pas ici le cas, mais encore l'auteur s'est-il targué de n'avoir pas effectué la moindre démarche pour faire monter Deux destinées : « Ce premier essai d'une jeune plume rapidement conduite n'a été refusé à aucun theâtre » (.) Le chiffre du tirage ne peut, pour sa part, être rapporté à un impératif financier : en 1834, Forneret, héritier depuis 1828 de la fortune paternelle, passe à bon droit pour un homme riche (.) Si Forneret était en mesure de s'offrir le caprice d'une publication, pourquoi se fût-il privé du plaisir supplémentaire de voir son nom associé à celui d'un grand éditeur parisien ? (.) L'auteur peut noter dès la préface de Vingt-trois, trente-cinq : « Il y a quelques mois, j'osai signer un drame en cinq actes, sous le titre de : Deux destinées. Plusieurs journaux me reprochèrent amèrement le luxe typographique donné à mon ouvrage, et surtout le chiffre 5, ayant à sa droite le mot prix, à sa gauche le mot francs, au dos, du papier, et devant lui des regards » (Jacques-Rémy Dahan, L'Homme noir et ses livres (Réflexions sur la production librariale de Xavier Forneret).

        Cinereous Eagle, Young

      Edinburgh, 1834. Engraving with thick hand colour. Printed on wove Whatman paper. In excellent condition with the exception of a mended tear on the left margin. Top left corner has been expertly made up. A beautiful print of a Cinereous Eagle from John Selby's seminal bird book, "Illustrations of British Ornithology". This stunning print is from volume one, "Land Birds", of Selby's celebrated bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology". A lovely impression with stunning rich colour, the print depicts a young Cinereous eagle. The Cinereous or Sea Eagle, is one of the two eagle species specific to England and typically resides along the coast and inland waters. 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 passion 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.

        Théorie nouvelle de la rotation des corps - Précession des équinoxes

      1834 - 3 ouvrages en 2 volume in-8 Paris, Bachelier [et] Paris, Mallet-Bachelier, 1834, 1852 et 1857, in-8, 3 ouvrages en 2 volume in-8 de 42 pages ; puis 134, (2) pages et 1 planches ; et 56 pages, plein chagrin vert, dos à 5 nerfs, roulette dorés sur les contre-plats, gardes marbrées et tête dorée, Edition pré-originale, extrêmement rare, de la théorie nouvelle de la rotation des corps de Poinsot au sein d'une luxueuse mise en recueil des deux principaux travaux de géométrie, en particulier de mécanique, de Poinsot. Parmi ses écrits de Mécanique, le plus important est sa Théorie nouvelle de la rotation des corps (1834). Poursuivant l'étude théorique entreprise au XVIIIe siècle par Euler, d'Alembert et Lagrange, Poinsot donne du mouvement une très intéressante représentation géométrique, et montre que l'ellipsoïde d'inertie reste constamment en contact avec un plan fixe (connu aujourd'hui comme mouvement à la Poinsot). Cette théorie a été développée par Sylvester et servit à Foucault pour la mise au point de son gyroscope. Cette remarquable intuition géométrique permit aussi à Poinsot d'élaborer une théorie purement géométrique de la précession des équinoxes. (DSB) Notre texte de la rotation des corps ne compte que 42 pages (et non 56 pages comme dans les exemplaires habituels du tiré à part des Mémoires de l'Académie). Il s'agit ainsi non pas d'un tiré à part mais d'un prospectus imprimé, probablement à très petit nombre, au moment de la lecture du mémoire le 19 mai 1834. Et en outre, la présente mise en recueil contient aussi la troisième, et dernière édition augmentée, publiée en 1852, du texte sur la rotation des corps, avec un hommage anonyme de l'auteur. Un exceptionnel ensemble, réalisé durant la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle par Henri Viellard et richement relié par ce dernier.Fonds institut Catholique de Paris, tampon annulé DSB, XI, page 62.

        Broadside. Begins: Washington's Farewell Address.

      New York: Pub. by C.C. Wright & Durand Folio extra (57 x 46 cm; 23" x 18"). 1 p.. [1834?] As Washington came to the last months of his second administration, he reflected on the nature of government under the new Constitution, the nature of American citizenship, and the status of the nation in the community of world nations, offering considered, informed, and sage advice to his fellow citizens. For example, he warns against "combinations or associations . . . [that] serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community'; he further foresees that [though] now and then answer[ing] popular ends, [these combinations] are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." On the diplomatic side, he urges that "Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest . . . " =>This is a stunning printing of Washington's famous message. The text is printed in gold ink in four-column format within an elaborate engraved border printed in silver on bright white calendered paper. The firm of "White & Durand" is listed in the 1834–35 New York city directory as specializing in "specimens of xylographic engraving and printing in colours" and seems to have done a good business in labels for drug store bottles. An earlier incarnation of the firm "A.B.C. Durand, Wright & Co." had specialized in banknote engraving as early as 1825, and certainly the border here is of that style and quality. The firm was renamed in the 1835–35 city directory to "Wright & Prentiss." Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and the OPACs of the American Antiquarian Society and the Library of Congress => fail to locate any other copies. Date attribution based on admiring notice in an 1834 trade journal. Minor indications at some edges of the item having been pinned or tacked for display; faint instances of old staining at edges, in one case slightly into border. => An excellent copy of an important and absolutely lovely production.

        Watercolour study of fish

      1834. Watercolour. Painted on Whatman paper dated 1834. In excellent condition with the exception of a few small tears on the left edge of sheet. Small section of missing paper on left edge. Two small tears on bottom edge. A stunning watercolour study of fish, including a large octopus, and a colourful sun-fish. Unfortunately we have not been able to discover any information concerning the artist of this charming watercolour. It is numbered and titled within the image but it bears no signature or date. It is obviously from the hand of an accomplished amateur painter who had a natural talent design and keen eye for detail. Amateur animal and flower painting became extremely popular during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century as a favored pursuit for aristocratic women. Painting was viewed as a necessary talent for young women, and was eagerly pursued and practiced by the upper classes. This skillful painting appears to be a watercolour study of an illustrated natural history text. Published scientific texts such as this were printed throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century and commonly included illustrations of both flora and fauna specimens. The numbering and titles further confirm that this is a study from a printed source, since this method of identifying specimens was typically used in published volumes. Lovingly rendered and carefully painted, this skillful watercolour is a true work of art.

      London: James Bohn, 1834. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First printing, 1834. Large 8vo, rebound in handsome maroon cloth gilt, 2 volumes in one,pp. viii, 472, xxxiv, (4), v, (6)-238, with half title to first volume, 11 lithographed plates and folding map as called for, collated complete. Fine; text seems slightly trimmed all the way around, very faint small blue spot to middle of frontispiece of the first volume, owner's bookplate on pastedown (Halford Lancaster Hopkins), small ink number stamp on dedication page ('217-A') but no evidence this was a library book. We could find little on Hopkins except that he graduated Earlham College in Indiana in 1913. Brydges' book is rare on the market and commands substantial auction records; a 'modern cloth' bound copy fetched 3000 Pounds in 2007 at Bonhams, with blindstamps to plates, and another copy with 'marginal dampstaining' sold for 8000 Pounds at Sotheby's in 1999.

"The bridge spans the Wissahickon just above a waterfall. Robinson's mill stands at the right. On the bridge is a train consisting of a primitive engine, two stagecoach-like passenger cars with passengers on the roofs, and a low car, probably for freight. This bridge was completed for the Philadelphia, Germantown and Norristown Railroad in 1834, and was torn down in 1844 to make way for a new bridge. The bridge had been very unpopular because it was not deemed safe, and this feeling had operated against the success of the railroad" - Wainwright.

      Guayaquil, Quito, San José, & Lima 1834-57 The history of Ecuador during the first generation after achieving independence from Spain was noteworthy for its ever-changing nature: politically part of New Granada, then a separate country; yearnings to be part of Peru; wars against Colombia for ownership of the Cauca region, and war against the Galapagos Islands for ownership of the giant tortoises; the trading off of the presidency between Flores and Rocafuerte; wild swings between rampant anti-clericalism and amicable church-state relations; promulgation of several radically different constitutions; and, finally, the institutionalization of political anarchy beginning in 1845 following the forced exile of President Flores. This offering contains original documents touching on many of these and other matters. All items in good+ or very good condition.

        Der Erzähler oder: Das Buch für lange Winterabende. Eine Gallerie der interessantesten Erzählungen, der merkwürdigsten historischen Begebenheiten, Empörungen, Verschwörungen, Revolutionen und Kriege aller Zeiten, charakteristischer Züge aus dem Leben berühmter Zeitgenossen, vorzüglicher Anekdoten, Witzworte und Epigramme. Allen Ständen zur Unterhaltung gewidmet von Dr. Carl Greif. 38 Bde. (von ?).

      Leipzig C H F Hartmann -1837 bzw Grimma Verlags-Comptoir 1838-1846 1834 - 33 Bde. in-8 (1834-1844, ab 1838 geringfügig im Format reduziert), 5 Bde. kl-8 (1845-1846); je Bd. ca. 400 pp; einheitlich dunkelgrün marmorierte Pappbde. mit goldgepr. hellroten Rückenschildchen und goldgepr. Adelssignet (bei einem Rücken Bezug geplatzt, zwei Kapitale etwas beschädigt); einzelne Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, teilweise stärker stockfleckig; insgesamt gut erhaltene und attraktiv gebundene Serie. Sammelbände der zweimal wöchentlich erscheinenden "Leipziger Lesefrüchte. Gesammelt in den besten literarischen Fruchtgärten des In- und Auslandes", einem vormärzlichen Periodikum der Trivialliteratur in der Art von "Reader's Digest". Quellenangaben im modernen Sinn fehlen; namentlich gekennzeichnete Texte stellen wohl zum Teil Originalbeiträge dar, längere Artikel wurden gerne auf mehrere Einzelhefte aufgeteilt. Die Serie scheint lückenhaft: vermutlich wurden jedes Jahr vier Sammelbände ausgeliefert, von den meisten Jahrgängen sind jedoch nur zwei bis drei Bände vorhanden. Da die Originalumschläge der Zeitschrift nur zum Teil mitgebunden wurden, ist eine exakte Kollationierung schwierig. - Seltenes und dekoratives Kuriosum.

        Traité de la composition et de l'ornement des jardins

      1834 - grand oblong, VIII, 159 et Paris, Audot, 1834, in-12, grand oblong, VIII, 159 et (1) pages suivies de 97 planches, demi-basane fauve moderne, dos lisse orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin orange (couverture d'origine conservée), Peu courante quatrième édition de ce best-seller de l'art des jardins. Paru pour la première fois en 1818, il sera augmenté six fois jusqu'en 1859. Cette quatrième édition suit la troisième (1825) qui avait ajouté, en regard de la seconde, un "art de construire des maisons tout en bois et des chalets, selon la méthode du canton de Berne en Suisse". La nouvelle édition de 1834 réaménage la précédente. Dans sa partie théorique, Boitard aborde avec exhaustivité l'ensemble des sujets nécessaires à la théorie et mise en pratique de l'art des jardins : choix du lieu, du site et du climat, travaux préparatoires, comment traiter et utiliser les différents végétaux, comment aménager les eaux (mare, lac, île, source, cascade, torrent, etc.), comment embellir son jardin, grâce à des constructions (ruines, chaumières, chalet, ponts, etc.). Pierre Boitard, botaniste et géologue français, dirigea durant deux ans la "Revue progressive d'agriculture, de jardinage, d'économie rurale et domestique". Il proposa, dès 1838, une première ébauche de la théorie de l'évolution. Orné d'un frontispice, l'ouvrage compte 97 planches qui représentent les différents types de jardins (paysager, potager, de ville, français, anglais, labyrinthe) et de très nombreuses fabriques (rotonde, belvédères, kiosques, balançoires, barques, bac chinois, etc.) Très bon exemplaire ne comportant que quelques rares rousseurs éparses [Attributes: Hard Cover]
