      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]

        Small archive including an Autograph Letter Signed to his father, 3 pages 4to (stain at head of first page), 11 Savile Row, 9-10 January 1835.

      - A group of manuscript and printed material relating to his work and family life, 13 items in all, 4to and 8vo (a few seal tears, creasing, light foxing and dust-staining), 1817-1842 where dated. After studying medicine at Edinburgh University and Guy's Hospital and touring the continent, Bright was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1820 and appointed full physician at Guy's in 1824.

        Oration of the life and character of Gilbert Motier De Lafayette...In the house of Representatives

      Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1835 Contemporary straight grain morocco, rebacked. An excellent copy inscribed to David Potts Jun from John Quincy Adams on a presentation slip inserted before the title page, and with the ownership signature of Ralph R. Ritzman on the fly-leaf. FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED, of Adams' biography of Gilbert du Motier (1757-1834), until June of 1790 the marquis de La Fayette. Lafayette was a French military officer who participated in both the American and French revolutions. As a result of his services, he was twice granted Honorary Citizenship of the United States, once in 1824 and again, posthumously, in 2002, one of only six persons to be so honored.& & Books inscribed by Adams (1767-1848) are quite scarce. It is probable that the presentation leaf was placed into the book at the original binding, as it contains heavy offsetting from the title. Potts (ca. 1794-1863) was elected to the State House of Representatives of Pennsylvania before being elected as an Anti-Masonic candidate to the twenty-second through twenty-fifth Congresses (March 4, 1831-March 3, 1839).&

        Oda al Jeneral Flores vencedor en Miñarica

      Guayaquil 1835 - A splendid Ode, printed in Guayaquil. 1835. Guayaquil. Imprenta de M. I. Murillo. In 4to (253 mm x 170 mm). 1 [blank] + 8. Modern folder, front board lettered in gilt. A fine copy, with a few foxing spots as expected, but generally very good. Apparently the first edition. A remarkably rare Ode to General Flores, printed in one of the less prolific South American printing houses, that of Guayaquil. Juan José de Flores was the first President of Ecuador; in January 1835 he triumphed at the battle of Miñarica, allowing to extend his position as leader of the young country. The author of the Ode was a colleague of Flores, and an Ecuadorian patriot; he is renowned as the author of ¿La victoria de Junín Canto a Bolivar¿; a most famous poem on the revolutionary wars occurred in South America. The printer, Manuel Ignacio Murillo (1802 ¿ 1884) was born in the same city he would found his press later on and could well be considered the most important printer and newspaper Director of Guayaquil of the first half of the 19th century, having worked with ¿El Patriota de Guayaquil¿ (first newspaper of the now-free Province), ¿El Republicano del Sur¿, ¿El Chispero¿ and ¿La Aurora¿. The highlight of his career was printing the ¿Canto a Junín¿, much similar to the ¿Oda al Jeneral Flores vencedor en Miñarica¿ offered here. Sabin, 56686. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

SOGGETTO: Due libri di viaggio illustrati. ANNO DI NASCITA: 1835 caEDIZIONE: Prima edizioneDESCRIZIONE: 2 volumi in ottavo grande (cm. 24 x 16 ca), legatura coeva in pergamena con quattro nervi, titoli manoscritti nei due scomparti al dorso, ex libris della Bibliotheque de Villeneuve-Butel incollati ai contropiatti anteriori, occhiello, frontespizio illustrato.

Tomo secondo pagine: [8] + 406 26 tavole fuori testo con incisioni in nero su acciaio, tutte protette da velina, la prima posta in antiporta come frontespizio illustrato. Le 52 tavole sono tutte presenti. COMMENTO: Questi due bellissimi volumi di viaggio si differenziano da tutte le altre opere simili pubblicate nello stesso periodo, perché il racconto del viaggio, fatto da un anonimo Artista, non descrive solo le bellezze paesaggistiche e i monumenti celebri incontrati lungo il tragitto, ma soprattutto la storia che pervade i luoghi, lo spirito religioso delle popolazioni, i colori e gli odori di città celebri come Venezia, il colore e l'odore dei deli, della terra, dei mari, il suono delle campane e soprattutto la gente semplice, i contadini, i pescatori, il popolo minuto. L'autore di queste passeggiate, poiché i resoconti di viaggio anonimi e privi di interesse sono firmati quasi su ogni pagina, proprio per questo motivo desidera invece restare anonimo. Le bellissime incisioni che arrichiscono i due volumi sono tratte dai disegni di due importanti paesaggisti inglesi quali Clarkson Stanfield (1793-1867) e William Turner (1775 -1851); in quasi tutte le tavole sono raffigurate persone del popolo intente alle loro attività. Tra le incantevoli incisioni raffiguranti località tedesche situate sulle sponde del fiume Reno, dell'Olanda e del Belgio contenute nel volume primo, e del Tirolo, della Svizzera e dell'Italia del Nord contenute nel volume secondo, segnaliamo: L'Isola Bella, al frontespizio illustrato - volume secondo Domodossola, alla p. 27 - volume secondo II Lago Maggiore, alla p. 48 - volume secondo Angera, alla p. 65 - volume secondo Sesto Calende, alla p. 66 - volume secondo II Duomo di Milano, alla p. 80 - volume secondo Verona, alla p. 112 - volume secondo Murano, alla p. 133 - volume secondo Mazzorbo, alla p. 134 - volume secondo Venezia, alle pp. 131, 139, 142, 168, 170, 172 - volume secondo Rovereto, alla p. 190 - volume secondo Trento, alla p. 194 - volume secondo Le schede dei due volumi sono presenti in ICCU.

        Gallus Varius (Forked-tail Jungle Fowl)

      Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists? Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection.Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot?s career, he published two volumes of ?A Monograph of the Phasianidae? from 1870-1872.The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot?s ?A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants? display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints.This lithograph, Gallus Varius, measures 23.25? x 18.5?, and is in mint condition. Commonly called Forked-tailed, Javan or Green Jungle-fowl, these birds are expertly hand-colored, the male in vibrant shades extending from head to tail-feather. The wattle and crown of the male is has lighter shades of pink, green, yellow and blue, whereas his body is rich with color and patterns in green, blue, yellow and orange with a dark black underside. The female Javan Junglefowl is more plain in color but has intricate patterns throughout her feathers in shades of black, brown and white. Their poses and the lush background add to this dynamic lithograph.
