        Framboisier a Fruit blanc (Rasberry)

      Paris 1835 - One of the most splendid books on fruit ever produced, “Traite des Arbres Fruitiers” was the result of the collaboration of two lifelong friends, Pierre Jean Francois Turpin (1775-1840) and Pierre-Antoine Poiteau (1766-1854). The son of a poor artisan, Turpin was largely self-taught but had studied the basic elements of drawing in the art school of his hometown, Vire. At 19, Turpin was sent to San Domingo in the West Indies where he met the young botanist, and student of the great botanist Pierre-Antoine Poiteau, whom was a student of the great botanical artist Pierre Joseph Redoute. This inspired in Turpin an enthusiasm for natural history. This ‘new edition’ was in fact a completely new work, loosely based on Henri Loius Duhamel du Monceau’s Traité des Arbres Fruitiers, published in 1768. Duhamel du Monceau, a French botanist, had the artists Claude Aubriet (ca. 1665-1747) and Madeleine Basseporte (1701-80) illustrate the fruit species to be included in the published work. This fine, hand-colored stipple engraving, “Framboisier a Fruit blanc” measures 20.5" x 13.25" and is in excellent condition. This engraving of a raspberry branch is expertly hand-colored with pale pink berries and rich, full green leaves, shaded and detailed for a naturalistic effect. Precise lines and fine details, such as the thorns and bristles of the berries, add to the over dynamic composition of the engraving.

        Pe-A-Jick A Chippewa Chief. Taken at the Treaty of Prairie du Chien 1825 by J. O. Lewis

      published by the author, [Philadelphia 1835 - A striking image from Lewis's "Aboriginal Portfolio." The Aboriginal Portfolio represents the first attempt to publish a collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding the works of Catlin, and McKenney and Hall. It is also one of the earliest large projects in American lithography, and one of the first large visual works to deal with subjects beyond the east coast of the United States. The Aboriginal Portfolio was originally published in Philadelphia, for the author, by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in parts, ten parts of eight plates each being issued; however, due to a loss of subscribers, very few of the last few parts were issued. James O. Lewis was born in Philadelphia in 1799, moved west as a teenager, and had become an engraver and painter by the time he lived in St. Louis in 1820. In 1823 he moved to Detroit, and painted the first of his Indian portraits at the request of Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan. He accompanied Cass on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes region in 1825-27 and painted Indians in the course of each. Virtually all of the originals published here were executed by Lewis in this period. Subsequently, many of the Lewis originals were copied by Charles Bird King, and some appeared in the King versions in the McKenney and Hall portfolio. All of the Lewis originals were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865. Cf. Bennett, p.68; cf. Eberstadt 131:418; cf. Field 936; cf. Sabin 40812; cf. Howes J135; cf.

        Pteroglossus Humboldtii / Humboldt's Aracari

      [London: by the Author, 1835. A fine image from the first edition of John Gould's "A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans." The toucan family is limited to Mexico, Central and South America and some West Indian islands. The first time that any member of the family was described was by Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes in his "de la natural hystoria de las Indias." (Toledo, 1526, chapter 42) In 1555 Pierre Belon included an illustration of its beak in his "L'Histoire de la nature des oyseaux." (Paris, 1555, p.184) Andre Thevet first used the name "Toucan" with a long description, and a woodcut of a whole bird, in his "Singularitez de la France" (Paris, 1555, pp.88-90). The Latin name "Burhynchus" or "Ramphestes" (in reference to the size of the beak) was suggested by Conrad Gesner ("Icones Avium", 1560, p.130), and Linnaeus later adopted Aldrovandus's corrupted form of the latter ("Ramphastos"), which is how the family was still recognized at the time of the publication of the present image. The present image is from the first edition of Gould's work, published in 1833-1835, which represented the first concerted attempt to produce a monograph on the family. A second expanded edition was published between 1852 and 1854. Gould considered this to be a completely separate work as the plates were all re-drawn and the text re-written. Cf. Anker 170; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 101; cf. Nissen IVB 378; cf. Sauer 3; cf. Wood, p. 364; cf. Zimmer, p. 252. Hand-coloured lithograph by John and Elizabeth Gould, printed by C. Hullmandel. Wove paper. Very good condition.

The youngest daughter of Johann Elssler, copyist and valet of Haydn, she made her debut (1833) in London. Elssler danced at the Paris Opera (1834-39) and in London (1838-40). Her forte was folk dancing, especially the cachucha, the cracovienne, and the tarantella. She toured the United States (1840-42) and, after appearances throughout Europe, retired in 1851. She was one of the most important ballerinas of the Romantic era; her dancing was sensuous, earthy, and fired by great energy.

        De la Démocratie en Amérique

      Charles Gosselin, Paris 1835 - Nineteenth century brown morocco backed marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. House in cloth chemises and a morocco backed slipcase. The first edition of the rare first part of Tocqueville's famous classic Democracy in America. From the time of its first publication, Democracy in America has enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. The present first part was published in an edition of less than 500 copies in January 1835. The book was an instant and sustained success with numerous editions. The origins of the book lie in the observations Alexis de Tocqueville made during a nine month tour of the United States starting in the spring of 1831. He was accompanied by his friend and fellow student, Gustave de Beaumont, and their original goal was to study the penitentiary system of the United States. After visiting prisons in the East, they undertook a tour of the South as far as New Orleans, ascended the Mississippi, visited the Great Lakes and Canada, and returned via New York. After writing their report on prisons, Tocqueville worked on the first part of Democracy in America in 1833-1834, publishing it in Paris in 1835 to great acclaim. The 1840 second part was equally as successful and the book remained in print throughout the 19th century: there were probably more than fifty editions in English and French published before 1900, besides numerous translations.

        CHATTERTON, drame.

      1835 - Paris, Hippolyte Souverain, 1835.

(table). EDITION ORIGINALE ornée d'un frontispice d'Edouard MAY, gravé à l'eau-forte. "Chatterton" est, d'un point de vue philosophique, l'oeuvre dramatique la plus profonde du romantisme. Vigny lui-même l'appelait « le drame de la pensée ». Au-delà du sort tragique du poète anglais, ce qu'il tenait à dénoncer, c'était la condition cruelle que la société réserve aux poètes, les acculant irrémédiablement au suicide. La pièce fut mise en scène pour la première fois au Théâtre Français le 12 février 1835 avec Marie Dorval, maîtresse de Vigny, dans le rôle de Kitty Bell. La représentation fut un triomphe. Le livre parut en avril. BEL EXEMPLAIRE soigneusement lavé et encollé, complet de la fragile couverture jonquille, finement relié par Henri NOULHAC. (Coron, Des livres rares, 185). FINE COPY.

        Das erste Luft-Post-Schiff genant der Adler nach der Natur getreu abgebildet.

      No place, c. 1835. - Engraving, 395:261 mm. Interesting German engraving, describing the airship built by Count Lennox in London in 1834/35. "In 1835, the comte de Lennox built the 'Eagle', a cigar-shaped airship that he displayed in London. This craft had four large paddles on either side that 'experimental sailors' were to turn back and forth like the oars of ancient ships. No evidence exists that Lennox tried to fly his invention, nor is there any reason to think it would have worked if he had tried" (Don Berliner, Aviation: Reaching for the Sky [1997], p. 33). "[The airship of 98,700 cubic feet capacity] is of interest because a small balloon or ballonet, 7,050 cubic feet contents, was placed inside the larger one for an air filling. A car 66 feet in length was rigged beneath the envelope by means of ropes eighteen inces long. Above the car the envelope was provided with a long air cushion in connection with a valve. The intention was by compression of the air in the cushion and the inner balloon, to alter the height of the airship, in order to travel with the most favourable air currents. The motive power was 20 oar propellers worked by men. The airship proved to be too heavy on completion to lift its own weight, and was destroyed by the onlookers" (George Whale, British Airships: Past, Present and Future [1919], p. 16). - Occasional insignificant browning; slightly wrinkled. Traces of folding. Cf. the like-sized drawing, dated 1838, in the ILA catalogue: Liebmann/Wahl (1912), no. 136 (probably based on this engraving, or vice-versa).

        Recherches sur les effets de la saignée dans quelques maladies inflammatoires, et sur l'action de l'émétique et des vésicatoires dans la pneumonie.

      J.B. Baillière, Paris 1835 - In-8, 120 pp., broché, dos partiellement fendu, bon exemplaire à toutes marges, tel que paru. Edition originale d'un ouvrage fondamental et très rare, manquant à la plupart des grandes collections médicales (Waller, Osler, Cushing, Haskell F. Norman). Louis réalisa des essais thérapeutiques (saignée) à différents moments de l'affection et fut surpris de constater que la mortalité était moins élevée chez les patients traités le plus tardivement. Il démontre par la méthode statistique l'absence de valeur thérapeutique de la saignée dans l'inflammation, en particulier dans la pneumonie. Il réfute ainsi la médecine physiologique de Broussais et se révèle le précurseur de la statistique médicale et de l'évaluation scientifique des procédés thérapeutiques. Cet ouvrage, qui est l'un des principaux fondements de la médecine factuelle, se heurta au scepticisme et souleva de longues controverses. La méthode numérique de Louis fut défendue en France surtout par Bouillaud et Chomel. Elle eut une grande influence sur la médecine américaine, grâce à cet ouvrage et à la traduction anglaise qui fut publiée dès l'année suivante. Elle sera reprise et développée dans les pays anglo-saxons, qui cherchèrent à limiter le biais de l¿observateur et l'effet du hasard. L'évaluation des traitements prendra surtout son essor dans les années 1940 avec l'introduction de l¿essai clinique randomisé. Pierre Charles Alexandre Louis (1787-1872), né à Aï, fit ses études médicales à Reims et à Paris. Il exerça à Odessa, puis revint à Paris, où il fut médecin à la Pitié et à l'Hôtel-Dieu. Il devint membre de l¿Académie de médecine. C¿est le grand mérite de ce médecin clairvoyant mais incompris, du moins en France, d'avoir proposé une nouvelle approche, méthodique, de la pratique médicale, avec l'emploi systématique des statistiques. Garrison & Morton, 1698 ; J.M. Chabot (In: Revue du Praticien, 2006, 56, pp.53-54) a rappelé l¿importance des travaux de Louis, notamment de cet ouvrage et analysé l'article de M. Best & D. Neuhauser intitulé Pierre Charles Alexandre Louis : Master of the spirit of mathematical clinical science. (Qual. Saf. Heath Care, 2005, 14, 462-464) : Ces auteurs estiment que P.C.A. Louis « a représenté l'une des trois écoles de pensée par lesquelles les connaissances et le raisonnement médical se sont développés » (les deux autres voies étant l'expérience clinique et la physiologie expérimentale). Louis « formula la plupart des notions qui constituent aujourd'hui le corpus de l'épidémiologie clinique et au-delà de l'Evidence Based Medicine ». [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Shawanoe Mission, Ks. & Washington, D.C.: J. Meeker (first two), J.G. Pratt (third) and Peter Force (fourth), 1835-1838.. Together four items. 48; 88; 81; 96pp. Antique-style three-quarter diced calf and marbled boards, spine gilt extra. Wrappers of first number bound in at front. Faint dampstain in lower margin of final eight leaves of first number. Occasional light foxing and tanning, a near fine set. A very rare complete set of all four numbers of Isaac McCoy's ANNUAL REGISTER..., which contain a wealth of information concerning western Indian tribes. The first number stands as the first English language book printed in present-day Kansas, printed (as was the second number) on the Jotham Meeker press, the first established in Kansas. The third number includes a chart listing the number of Indians in each tribe, both east and west of the Mississippi, as well as "A Plea for the Aborigines of North America" continued from the second number. The fourth number was issued in Washington from the press of Peter Force. The first number in this collection contains the original wrappers, on which is printed a prospectus, issued in Isaac McCoy's name, "for publishing, on the Kauzau River, within the Indian Territory, west of the state of Missouri, and three hundred miles west of St. Louis, a semi-monthly periodical, to be entitled THE INDIAN ADVOCATE." The paper would "furnish correct historical sketches of the past, and information respecting their present condition, and their future prospects, together with the earliest notices of important events which shall transpire within the Indian country, and of the transactions of Government and benevolent societies, among the Indians...." This periodical was never issued, for want of financial support. McMurtrie and Allen, in their study of Jotham Meeker's press, assign this wrapper/prospectus a separate item number: 11. This first number also contains the contemporary ownership signature of Rev. Daniel Sharp of Boston on the front wrapper. Sharp (1783-1853) was pastor of the Charles Street Baptist Church for more than forty years. McCoy first visited the Prairies in 1828, with follow-up tours during the next three years. In 1831 he settled at the Shawanoe Mission, which had been founded by his son- in-law earlier that year. During the following years McCoy travelled widely in the western country. In 1835 he had Jotham Meeker, who had established a press at the Mission a year earlier, print the initial number of THE ANNUAL REGISTER.... McCoy's ANNUAL REGISTERs are full of information regarding the Indian emigrant's introduction into the new country, and provide details concerning many tribes (e.g. Pawnee, Otoe, Omaha, Cherokee, Delaware, Kickapoo, Osage, Kansas, etc.). Also included are descriptions of the military posts within the Indian Territory, conditions of various tribes, etc. Complete sets of the four numbers are rarely met with. The Streeter set lacked the first number, and Dr. Frank Siebert was never able to find the elusive third number, despite many years of search. "Issues of this periodical are very rare" - Gilcrease. SABIN 43111. HOWES M67, "aa." FIELD 983. GRAFF 2586, 2588 (lacking No. 1). STREETER SALE 544 (nos. 2, 3, 4 only). McMURTRIE & ALLEN (Meeker) 22, 41, 58.

      1835. A collection of letters and documents relating to the conviction and sentencing of John Russell to New South Wales (Australia) for a petty crime. Russell, the son of a bricklayer from Lambeth, fell into bad company and was sentenced to life for the theft of "a fruit pie and 2 dishes," which he thought was part of a practical joke involving some new acquaintances. Included are two Autographed Letters Signed from Russell to his family while held aboard the convict hulk Leviathan awaiting transport, a handwritten petition to the British Secretary of the State for the Home Department pleading for leniency, and an Enquiry for a Convict letter notifying the family of Russell's conviction and transportation on the convict ship Recovery. The documents are worn with soiling and tears at the folds but all are still clearly legible and complete, good. A sad archive, yet interesting source material that provides insight into the harsh treatment of criminals by the early 19th Century British legal system as reflected in works such as Charles Dicken's Great Expectations, in which detention on and escape from convict hulks played a major part. Further details available upon request. .

      Paris: Charles Gosselin, 1835. - Two volumes. [4],xxiv,367; [4],459pp. plus handcolored folding map in first volume. Half title in each volume. Early 20th-century half morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Light wear at hinges and corners. A very good copy. In a half morocco box. The first edition of the first part of Tocqueville's famous classic, DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA, one of the most famous investigations of the American political system. Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States in the spring of 1831, accompanied by his friend and fellow student, Gustave de Beaumont. Their original goal was to study the penitentiary system of the United States. After visiting prisons in the East, they undertook a tour of the South as far as New Orleans, ascended the Mississippi, visited the Great Lakes and Canada, and returned via New York, having travelled for nine months. After writing their report on prisons, Tocqueville began work on the first part of DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA in 1833-34 and published it, in an edition of less than five hundred copies, in January 1835. The book was an instant success, and numerous editions, many with revisions, followed quickly, so that the second part, first published in April 1840, was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part. There were probably more than fifty editions in English and French published before 1900, besides numerous other translations. Almost from the beginning it enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. Remarkably, it has sustained its appeal generation after generation, as new readers find it speaks to their time with a contemporary voice. Whether perceived as a textbook of American political institutions, an investigation of society and culture, a probing of the psyche of the United States, or a study of the actions of modern democratic society, the book has continued to offer insight and provoke thought since its inception. It has also probably provided commentators with more quotations than any other work about the United States. HOWES T278. SABIN 96060. CLARK III:111.

        The Crayon Miscellany No. 1 Containing A Tour On The Prairies; The Crayon Miscellany No. 2 Containing Abbotsford and Newstead Abbey and The Crayon Miscellany No. 3 Containing Legends of the Conquest of Spain (3 volumes)

      Carey, Lea, & Blanchard,, Philadelphia: 1835 - All three volumes are in the publisher's original dark green cloth covered boards with the original, paper labels on the spines of No. 1 and No. 2. and with a meticulously accurate reproduction of the paper label on the spine of No. 3. All three are 12mos measuring 7" by 4 1/4" and are all in very good or better condition. No. 1 is a first edition, first state with the sheets bulking to 9/16" without the ads with the synopsis on page 247 showing: "binger of dawn" and the paper spine label is identified as "Label A" and, the catalog (ads at the rear) is identified as "Catalog A" per BAL 10140. It is in very good condition and contains 274 pages followed by a blank leaf and then by 24 pages of ads by the publisher. There is some scuffing to the boards and there is an early prior owner's name written in both ink and pencil on the first free end page. (The penciled signature is followed by a date of "1835". ) The corners of the boards are turned inward and there are spots of foxing throughout. Only 5,000 copies of the first printing were produced making this title fairly uncommon. This was Irving's first book written entirely in the US following his seventeen year stay in Europe. He was worried that Tour of the Prairies was too simple and not strong enough to stand on its own as a book. In January of 1835 he hit upon the idea of publishing it as the first volume in a multi-volume series he would call The Crayon Miscellany. (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original) In this volume he added an opening announcement (billed as an "Advertisement") with the following statement: "The 'Crayon Miscellany' will appear in the numbers, from time to time, as circumstances may permit' and will contain scenes and sketches of life in America and Europe; together with such other themes, both real and imaginary, as may present themselves to the mind of the Author." No. 2 is a first edition in very good+ condition in the publisher's original green cloth covered boards with the original paper label on the spine with a minor, narrow abrasion approximately 1/2" long. A 12mo measuring 7" tall by 4 1/4" deep with an early (1898) prior owner's name written in ink on the second free end page. 230 pages of text followed by a blank leaf and 36 pages of ads from the publisher and one final blank leaf and the free end sheet. No. 2, was published six weeks after No. 1, on May 30, 1835. Reportedly, only 5,000 copies were printed. The contents are "Irving's fond tribute to the homes of Walter Scott and Lord Byron." (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original.) It was well received by an adoring American public even winning fond praise from Edgar Allan Poe. No. 3 is also a first edition in very good condition with a prior owner's book plate on the front paste down and tape marks on the first free end page and with moderate foxing throughout the preliminaries, ads and end sheets as well as light soiling to the rear board. It contains 276 pages followed by eight pages of ads from the publisher. Per BAL 10144 this copy conforms to "Setting A". Like the previous two volumes, the first printing of this title was limited to 5,000 copies. This is the third and final volume in The Crayon Miscellany. A handsome and complete collection of Irving's Crayon Miscellany. (BAL 10140, 10142 & 10144; Langerfeld/Blackburn p. 33) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
