Association copy, inscribed on the half-title, "Tupper Carey, Esq., with the editor's best regards, Guernsey, 7 April, 1837." [Reverend] Tupper Carey (1823-1897) , The biography of a major figure in the War of 1812, by his nephew, along with accounts of the military careers of various other members of his family. Isaac Brock began his military career in the early 1790's when he served in Jamaica and Barbados, before moving on to several posts in Europe. In 1802 he went to Canada as a lieutenant-colonel, and he quickly distinguished himself by single-handedly suppressing a dangerous conspiracy among deserters from a detachment at Fort George, the ringleaders of which were executed at Quebec in 1804. In 1810 he was named lieutenant governor of Upper Canada. "Here his energetic example, the confidence reposed in him by the inhabitants, and the ascendancy he possessed over the Indian tribes, at that time under the leadership of the famous Shawnee warrior Tecumseh, proved of the highest value." -- DNB. In 1811 Brock was raised to the rank of major-general, and the following year, upon the outbreak of war with the United States, he was instrumental in the capture of Detroit from General Hull. Brock was mortally wounded in the course of winning the Battle of Queenstown, and he died on October 13, 1812. As first issued, this book contained 218 pp. only. This copy contains a very scarce supplementary section printed in 1836 (pp. 219-234), with a sketch of William Le Mesurier Tupper, who served with the British Legion in Spain and was mortally wounded at St. Sebastian on May 5, 1836.

        Lophophorus Impeyanus (Himalayan Monal Pheasant)

      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, Lophophorus Impeyanus, measures 23? x 19?, and is in mint condition. Commonly called Himalayan Monal Pheasants, these birds are expertly hand-colored, the male in vibrant shades of green, red, yellow, purple and blue throughout its body, with orange tail-feathers. The female is less boldly colored save for her blue eye circle, but her feather patterns are intricate and well detailed. The small chicks also have brown coloring with reddish crowns. This intimate image of the pheasant family is well detailed, as they are shown within their natural habitat, full of lush color.

      IMPRENTA POR A. F. DE MONTEJO, LIMA-PERÚ 1835 - SOBERBIO CARTEL DE TOROS del año 1835, dando razón de 16 reses para lidiar el Lunes 25 de Mayo de 1835, en la gran Plaza de ACHO (Lima-PERU) la más antigua de toda América y la tercera más antigua del mundo.

Anuncia al final del texto que "La suerte de vola pie nunca vista en este pais, en que un diestro torero puesto de espaldas en el suelo, le plantará un parche al toro á su salida con el pié.

        Blanche herissee, Verte-Blanche herissee (Currant)

      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, “Blanche herissee, Verte-Blanche herissee” measures 21" x 13.75" and is in very good condition with light foxing and ink runoff from being bound. The title, translating to: white bristling and green-white bristling, describes the type and look of the currants shown. The plants are shadowed and highlighted in varying shades of green, which, along with precise lines and detailing of the leaves, thorns and currants, create a naturalistic and aesthetic effect.

        ANSICHTEN VON MISSIONS=NIEDERLASSUNGEN DER EVANGELISCHEN BRUDER=GEMEINDE. VUES DES ETABLISSEMENS MISSIONAIRES FONDES PAR LA COMMUNAUTE EVANGELIQUE DES FRERES-UNIS.

      Basel. []. 1835 - Four aquatint engravings, 12 1/2 x 18 inches. Laid into original printed wrappers. A very slight bit of soiling or a faint fox mark along edges, but the images are crisp and clean. Near fine, in original condition. In a folding case, gilt morocco label. A lovely suite of four aquatint plates depicting scenes on Antigua, in the Leeward Islands of the West Indies. The engravings were made from original work by L. Stobwasser, with the first plate engraved by Hegi and the following three by Hürliman. The entire project was commissioned by the Moravian Church as a way of promoting their work on the island. The first plate shows slaves at rest before the Moravian mission house in the capital of St. Johns, and the other three show scenes of field workers, plantation houses, and the Antiguan landscape. The plates are as follow: 1) "Vue de l'Establissement des Missions a St. Johns dans l'Isle d'Antigon aux Indes occidentales." A group of seven Antiguans, young and old, male and female, sits around a large tree in the courtyard of the Moravian mission complex. Other islanders are seen walking into or past various buildings. 2) "Vue de Gracehill dans l'Isle d'Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." A lovely landscape with a plantation house situated in the background. In the foreground a female field worker and her three children carry sticks and provisions past the well dressed plantation owners, who carry umbrellas and wear top hats. 3) "Vue de Gracebay dans l'Isle d'Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." Two plantation workers - a man carrying a hoe and a woman holding an infant - walk uphill as goats forage and romp nearby. Grace Bay and mountains are seen in the background. 4) "Vue de Cedarhall dans l'Isle d'Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." Another view of plantation life on the island. In the foreground a male worker sits beneath a tree smoking a pipe and speaks to a woman who balances a basket on her head. In the middle ground workers hoe a field and cattle graze. Two large homes are seen in the background, situated on rolling hills before larger mountains. An accomplished group of scenes showing agricultural labors and social interaction among the Blacks of Antigua, beautifully engraved and taking full advantage of the fine shadings and tones afforded by aquatint. Not in Abbey. OCLC locates only two copies, at Hamilton College and Oak Spring Garden Library. Very rare. BEINECKE LESSER ANTILLES COLLECTION 820. OCLC 15434253.

        A New Universal Atlas; comprising separate maps of all the principal empires, kingdoms & states throughout the world, and forming a distinct atlas of the United States carefully compiled from the best authorities extant by David H. Burr

      D.S. Stone, New York 1835 - Expertly bound to style in half calf over publisher's pebbled cloth covered boards, upper cover titled in gilt, spine with wide semi-raised bands in five compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, colour endpapers A fine copy of this important work from one of the greatest early American cartographers. David H. Burr was one of the great American mapmakers of the 19th century. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, he began his career leading a road survey through the southern counties of New York for the purpose of building a highway. This led to his being given, in 1829, the responsibility of revising Simeon De Witt's seminal New York State Map of 1804 (under De Witt's direction) to account for the considerable changes that had occurred over the last generation. This and the Atlas of the State of New York he published in 1829 established Burr's prominence in American cartography. The success of his State Atlas persuaded him to aim at a wider audience and publish a general atlas. Ristow states that Burr completed only eight of the 63 maps by 1832 when his involvement in the project was severely curtailed when he accepted the position of topographer for the United States Post Office Department. His maps were engraved by Thomas Illman and Edward Pillbrow and they took over the responsibility for finishing the work, although Burr retained an editorial role, and he was probably able to make use of his new position which gave him access to geographical material sent in from postmasters throughout the land. Cf. Phillips Atlases 1379a; cf. Ristow p.106. (15 x 12 1/2 inches). Engraved throughout, title, 1p. contents list, 63 hand-coloured engraved plates. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MEMOIRE SUR LE CANAL LATERAL A LA GARONNE, établissant la jonction définitive des Deux Mers.

      1835 - Paris, Imprimerie de Guiraudet et Jouaust, octobre 1835. Petit in-folio (250 X 326) broché ; 148 pages, 2 cartes couleurs dépliantes. DEUXIEME EDITION, RARE. Ouvrage bien complet des DEUX BELLES CARTES dépliantes en couleurs gravées sur vergé fort, intitulées "Carte générale du canal latéral à la Garonne avec embranchement sur Montauban. 1830" (575 X 780) et "Carte d'une partie de l'Europe" (470 X 543). Au début du XIXe siècle, l'avantage de la construction d'un canal latéral à la Garonne apparait comme une évidence, apportant la sécurité et la maîtrise des coûts de la navigation. Le 17 décembre 1828, une ordonnance est votée prescrivant l'étude de ce canal. Une société privée de Bordeaux, la compagnie Magendie se voit attribuer cette étude, confiée plus particulièrement à Alexandre Doin. C'est au travers de ce mémoire édité en 1832 qu'Alexandre Doin présente tous les avantages du futur canal. Le document exhaustif compare les coûts de navigation du futur canal avec ceux du chemin de fer, ceux du passage par Gibraltar ou encore par l'hypothétique canal des Pyrénées. Ce dernier constituait en effet un autre projet de liaison fluviale jusqu'à Bayonne, par un canal remontant en amont de Toulouse et se raccordant à l'Adour après avoir traversé le plateau de Lannemezan. ON JOINT : "Lois, cahier des charges et statuts concernant le Canal latéral à la Garonne" (A Bordeaux, Chez Lavigne jeune, in-quarto broché, 20 pages) et un feuillet de quatre pages "Canal latéral à la Garonne - Société anonyme" contenant les statuts de ladite société. Couverture en partie brunie, néanmoins PLAISANT EXEMPLAIRE broché, à grandes marges, frais et aux cartes en PARFAIT ETAT. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

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).

        Letters From India;

      London, Edward Churton,, 1835.. Describing a Journey in the British Dominions of India, Tibet, Lahore, and Cashmeer, During the Years 1828, 1829, 1830, 1831. Undertaken by Order of the French Government… Second Edition. Very carefully corrected and revised. 2 volumes, small octavo (170 × 102 mm), recently bound in tan full morocco, title gilt direct to spine, fine beaded rolled panel gilt to the boards, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispieces and vignette half-titles to each. Light browning, marginal foxing, frontis. and half-title to Vol. I with short splits repaired verso with archival tape, overall very good. First published in French in 1833, the year after Jacquemont's death, the English first edition was 1834. Jacquemont was one of the founders of the Société d'Histoire Naturelle, worked at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, and studied geology under Arago at the École des Mines. In 1827 he was invited by Pierre Louis Cordier of the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle to undertake a fully-salaried scientific expedition to India. Landing in Pondicherry in 1828, he proceeded to Calcutta, thence to Benares, Agra, and Delhi "and in the company of Lord William Bentinck arrived in 1830 at Simla." (Howgego) While there he joined the Gerard brothers in explorations of the passes leading to Tibet, claiming to have crossed into the country twice, and was encouraged by them to obtain permission to visit Kashmir. At Lahore, he successfully obtained audiences with Ranjit Singh who granted the necessary authority, and Jacquemont headed into Kashmir "Unlike most of his contemporaries he made no attempt to disguise himself." Deserted by his porters, subjected to incessant heat, he was captured by a bandit adherent of Ranjit, Nihal Singh "who was desperately in need of a prestigious hostage." But so persuasive was Jacquemont that Nihal was soon a trusted servant who accompanied him to Srinagar; "He spent four months there, making forays into the surrounding country and amassing a considerable collection of plants, stuffed birds and fishes, and geological specimens." Returning to Delhi, he was stricken with ill-health and died in 1832 at Bombay of an abscess on the liver. His letters proved to be immensely successful, perhaps because of their providing what the DIB describes as "a most vivid account … of the social condition of India in those days."

        Gallus La-Fayetti (Ceylon Junglefowl)

      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 La-Fayetti, measures 23.25? x 18.5?, and is in excellent condition. These pheasants, commonly called Ceylon Junglefowl, are expertly hand-colored, the male with a red and yellow comb and wattle, and rich yellow, red, blue and purple feathers. The juvenile male in the foreground has color and patterns similar to the female but with a small comb and the female in the background is well detailed with a white underside. Precise lines define and detail the feathers and patterns of these birds and given them definition and dimension in this dynamic lithograph.

        Plate 29, Vaso antico di marmo adornato di finissimi intaglj ed arabeschi Si vede in Inghilterra presso il Signor Egidio Earle Cavaliere Inglese amatore delle belle arti.

      Paris 1835 - John Wilton-Ely plate 914Piranesi's magnificent rendering of ancient Roman vases. The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830s Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etching

Uncommon naval fiction dedicated to Captain Marryat. COPAC has just BL, NMM, Oxford, Cambridge, Glasgow and St. Andrews; OCLC adds four copies only in the US and one in Australia. Barker was the Deptford-born son of a dissenting preacher. At 16 he joined an East Indiaman, and later served in the Royal Navy, "where, as he was without influence, he never rose beyond the rank of master's mate on the gun-brig The Flamar. After retiring from the service in 1813, he commanded a hired armed schooner, the True Briton, and was employed under Lord Keith in carrying dispatches to the English squadrons on the southern coasts of France and Spain. On one occasion he fell into the enemy's hands and was detained for some months as a prisoner of war" (ODNB). He was subsequently the editor of a West Indies newspaper, and later employed in a similar capacity in Nottingham. "He was naval editor of the United Service Gazette and a frequent contributor to the Literary Gazette, the Pictorial Times, and Bentley's Miscellany, the last at the time under the editorship of Charles Dickens, who came to value the consistent quality of the contributions of 'the old Sailor'. Barker was a friend of George Cruikshank, who illustrated seven of his works." Barker "felt that his publishers were less than generous with him" and when the popularity of sea tales waned he fell on hard times. He died in poverty in 1846. Wolff 294; not in Sadleir.

        Selections from the Edinburgh Review, Comprising The Best Articles in That Journal, From Its Commencement to the Present Time. With A Preliminary Dissertation and Explanatory Notes. (6 volumes)

      Baurdry's European Library, Paris 1835 - Book. 1835 to 1836, 6 volumes. The Edinburgh Review, begun in 1802 (and continuing until 1929), was a leading political and literary quarterly especially in its earlier decades, and a beacon of "liberalism" as the word was traditionally understood, and thus generally advocating laissez-faire policies, championing liberties, and supporting of free trade and less governmental tampering with the marketplace. Its stable of contributors is perhaps unrivaled among such publications, then or now, and indeed, it is virtually inconceivable that any one publication would draw upon so many thinkers whose ideas would have an indelible and lasting effect on society. As an anthology of the "best of" up until the publication date, the six volumes are organized around topics, with generally several pieces, some of them extended, on each of the covered larger themes. The first volume begins with a "Preliminary Dissertation on The Progress of Periodical Literature: and The History, Principles and Tendency of The Edinburgh Review", which is a summary of the review and what it stood for, as well as a synopsis of its highlights. Following comes the thematic sections. Starting with volume one, these are: Poetry and the Drama, Character of Distinguished Poets, Sketches of the Old English Dramatists, Character of Eminent Divines, Philosophers, Statesmen, Orators, Historians, Novelists and Critics; Miscellaneous Literature (German, Historical Writing, etc.); Metaphysics and Moral Science; Education; Political History; Foreign Politics; Miscellaneous Politics; Civil and Religious Liberty; Reform in Parliament, Church Reform, Liberty of the Press, West India Slavery; Political Economy -- Laws and Jurisprudence, Ireland. With all these broad categories, there are several, or even many, shorter pieces by different authors. There is scattered foxing, sometimes heavy. Most of the interior is clean, however. Modern green half calf over contemporary marbled boards. Some edge wear to the boards. Marbled endpapers. Overall a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

For three consecutive winters Ross and his men were stuck in ice, but used the time wisely to learn mapping, hunting, sewing, transportation and language from the local inuit. Ross also organized lectures, lessons, and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole.

Two octavo volumes (7 5/8 x 4 7/8 inches; 195 x 124 mm). xvi, 731, [1], [2, publisher’s ads]; xii, 750, [2, errata] pp. Publisher’s blind-ruled and beveled black cloth, spines with central gilt arabesques surrounding the gilt lettering, pastepaper endpapers, edges stained red. Some underlining in blue on a few pages. Some scattered foxing. Overall, a very good copy. "The publication of 'The Life of Jesus Critically Considered' aroused a storm of controversy; its revolutionary thesis and content were violently attacked, and wrenched out of context. Strauss's principal objective was to explode not only the traditional orthodox view of the Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus, but also earlier rationalistic views." (PMM p. 182). Strauss's first and greatest work, a crucial text in the history of biblical studies and of religious scholarship generally. The first consistent, systematic application of the (then quasi-Hegelian) notion of myth to the New Testament and early Christianity, offering an epoch-making interpretation of the Christ of the Gospels as the unintentional product of a "mythos" of Messianic expectation already present in ancient Hebrew culture. The book was a scandal which adversely affected Strauss's entire career, offending rationalist and orthodox biblical literalists alike Printing and the Mind of Man 300.

Light toning to text, negligible foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. * First edition. Established by the Congress of Vienna in 1815, this Northern Italian kingdom of Lombardy-Veneto was part of the Austrian Empire. Lombardy was annexed to Sardinia in 1859 and the kingdom ceased to exist when the rest of its territory was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Interesting for its insights into the development of the Kingdom's legal system, Negri's digest reconciles pre-1815 laws with the post-1815 system. A few supplemental update volumes were published through 1858. OCLC locates 1 copy of the 1835 edition in North America (at Harvard Law School, which lacks the 1836 Appendice). Not in the British Museum Catalogue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Horse Shoe Robinson By the Author of Swallow Barn

      1835 - London: Richard Bentley, 1835 [1835] 3 8vo volumes, viii, 321, 322, 320. 3/4 dark blue leather over blue cloth, title in gilt. Front outer joint of Vol 3 split and pulling away from spine but still attached; name in pencil to Vol I; all three volumes bear the bookplate of David M Sherman to either fpep or fep; wear to spine tips; lower spine leather of Vol III chipped ( w some loss), a VG- set of this work by Kennedy (October 25, 1795 – August 18, 1870), his second major work of fiction after Swallow Barn, which was his most succesful novel, though the present work is generally acknowledged as his finest. Kennedy was both an active Whig politician who served as Secretary of the Navy under Filmore, and a man of letters, who authored at least one chapter of Thackeray's Vanity Fair and who was responsible for introducing Poe to Thomas White of the Southern Literary Messenger. The 2 volume Carey, Lea & Blanchard edition of 1835 was the true first though the triple decker edition appears to be the less common of the two. [Attributes: First Edition]
