        Children's History of, Beasts, Advice and Select Hymns

      America,: Sandbornton Press,, 1835.. Duodecimo, with a series of woodcut illustrations; original decorated pink wrappers, a very nice copy. Rare children's chapbook, published in America. Intended as a natural history lesson, each animal is fully described and illustrated with naâve word blocks. The selection of beasts includes the kangaroo, and the description and illustration are charming: 'its action in moving is very singular, as it can neither walk nor run, but jumps with such singular swiftness as to escape the pursuit of the fleetest greyhound...'. Early ephemeral books for children rarely survive.

        LíAlbum des peuples ou collection de tableaux

      Paris,: J. Langlume et Peltier, 1835.. Octavo, with 20 handcoloured plates (including frontispiece), a little foxing of the text but a very good copy in original patterned green papered boards, rubbed. A charming French account of the peoples of the world written for younger readers and featuring twenty vibrant hand-coloured plates including a Tahitian scene and a depiction of a war canoe from New Zealand.The chapter on Polynesia comprises a rather good description of the manners and customs of Tahiti. The brightly coloured plate, titled Repas d'un chef d'Otaiti, depicts a chief draped in scarlet cloth with three attendants serving and preparing his meal. Some elements of the scene, such as the cocoanut palm and native dwelling at the rear, are reminiscent of the Pacific although the draped apparel of the figures is of oriental influence. The plate depicting the war canoe of New Zealand is based on a study by Sydney Parkinson, and although the cloaks and garments of the figures are fancifully coloured the engraving does reproduce much of the intricate ornamental detail of the carved prow of the vessel.Additional plates of interest include a native family of Tierra de Fuego inside their rough dwelling, Eskimo's making a fire and a depiction of a slave in the Congo in shackles being led to market.With the bookplate of Paul Gavault, seemingly the French writer and director.Not in Hocken, New Zealand National Bibliography, O'Reilly Reitman .

        Autograph Letter Signed. 3 pp, 8vo, 12 Park Crescent, Portland Place, March 26, 1901

      On black bordered mourning stationery, he writes Archibald Geikie (1835- 1924), a prominent Scottish geologist who investigated much of the British Isles and worked on volcanic activity. ?To my great regret I shall not be able to join, as I had hoped to do, in the small tribute of regard and great esteem which is about to be paid to you on May 1st . I have been elected President of the Edinburgh University Club in the room of the late Duke of Edinburgh, and I promised long ago to preside at their Dinner on May 1st . When the circular reached me announcing that the Dinner in your honour had been arranged for the same evening, I wrote to the Secretary of the Club, to see if any way could be devised for me to get off my engagement to them. But I learn today that it is impossible either to alter the day or to obtain at this stage a substitute for me. So I am bound by my promise. I could not but let you know how great a disappointment this is.? Boldly signed, ?Lister?.

        WAA-BA-SHAW A CELEBRATED SIOUX CHIEF

      [Philadelphia: Published by the author, 1835-36].. Lithograph, colored by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. Sheet size: 17 11/16 x 11 inches. A striking image from Lewis&#39; 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. BENNETT, p.68. EBERSTADT 131:418. FIELD 936. SABIN 40812. HOWES J135. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 23.

        NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF NORTH-WEST PASSAGE, and of a Residence In the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833. Including the Reports of Commander, now Captain, James Clark Ross, and the Discovery of the Northern Magnetic Pole [with] APPENDIX TO THE NARRATIVE

      London: A. W. Webster, 1835. Together 2 volumes, in the rare original cloth. The NARRATIVE is presented here in its especially scarce large paper format. First editions. With a total of 49 engraved plates and charts, 17 in color, folding chart at rear. Thick 4to, publisher&#146;s original blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt on the spines. xxxiii, 740; xii, 120, cxliv, ciii. A handsome set, the first volume with the original backstrip laid down, the second volume in original condition, inner hinges strengthened, new endleaves in each volume. Both volumes clean and bright, light, typical foxing at the prelims or edges. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITIONS. A nice set in the original binding. The cloth bright though expertly repaired, is in fine condition, the joints are tight, and internally, aside from the minor foxing at the prelims as mentioned, the books are very clean. This set with the rare second volume. "Another of those wonderfully interesting narratives of human endurance, triumphing over the most awful peril and suffering. The sumptuous printing which makes every page a picture, has even its luxury enhanced by the splendid steel engravings and lithographs. The former are so excellent as to be worthy of preservation as gems of art...[The] appendix contains, besides the illustrations of Esquimaux life, forty-four pages of a vocabulary of the language of that people." (Field/Lesser) "As a result of the failure of his voyage in 1818, the Admiralty refused to support John Ross in a second. It was not until 1829 that the assistance of Felix Booth, the sheriff of London, enabled him to set out in the small paddle-steamer Victory with his nephew James Clark Ross as second-in-command. The expedition survived four winters in the Arctic during which James Clark Ross discovered the North Magnetic Pole. James Clark Ross edited the natural history section of the appendix and John Ross the remaining sections comprising meteorology, navigation, and ethnology." (Hill p. 261) &#147;Despite the failure of his trip in 1818, Ross set out in 1829 in the small ship, Victory, to find a northwest passage, but the vessel had to be abandoned in 1832. Ross and his party were rescued in the summer of 1833 in Lancaster Sound. In the meantime, Capt. George Back had set out in search of Ross. Back&#39;s account of his explorations was published the year after this volume appeared. The greatest scientific yield of the trip was the discovery of the North Magnetic Pole. The many attractive plates are listed in detail in Abbey. A number of them depict the natives and events during the voyage. The lengthy appendix adds significantly to the work and includes additional color plates of Eskimos and a vocabulary of the Eskimo language, as well as a report about the natural history of the Arctic.&#148; (Reese)

        Eyewitness account of the New York fire of 1835

      Near the intersection of Hanover Street and Stone Street on December 16, 1835, a fire began in a five-story warehouse. Fed by high winds, the fire quickly spread through the city, as sub freezing temperatures prevented the use of fire hoses. After fifteen hours, firefighters were able to stop the progress of the fire by blowing up a series of buildings. This 1835 blaze was the worst in the history of New York. It destroyed over fifty acres of land, 700 buildings, and many of the remnants of the original city. Only two people perished, but financial losses were estimated around twenty million dollars. Most of the insurance companies for local properties immediately went bankrupt. This is a moving, emotional, three page letter written two days after the fire by an eyewitness who sees the hand of a &#147;wise Providence&#148; in the devastation of a &#147;City, bloated in wealth, forgetful of daily favors.&#148; &#147;Property and merchandise to an incalculable amount has been consumed... And those who foolishly believed or fancied themselves secured by Insurance have since discovered that all the Principal offices are more than doubly ruined... Many worthy individuals, who by their industry and economy had acquired a sufficiency, have in a moment, as it were, been deprived of their All. And a vast number of pampered, rich, overgrown Individuals, who boast of their wealth, and feel their only importance, in the distinction which it created, have been reached in a way, least expected, and shaken and sifted after the manner of wheat...&#148;

        South Sea Whale Fishery

      London,: Rudolph Ackermann, 1835.. Handcoloured aquatint, 350 x 515 mm. (image size), complete with caption and all margins; sealed tear top left, generally in very good condition, framed. A rare and classic whaling print, showing a dramatic scene of a sperm whale crashing through a whaling boat, flinging the five whalers into the sea.The title "South Sea Whale Fishery" referred to all whale hunting south of the Arctic, an area the British established in 1776 when an American whaleman, Samuel Enderby, emigrated to England and was followed by recruits from Nantucket.'Once the British and American China traders pioneered the Cape Horn route in the 1780s, the whalers followed closely in their wake... the whalers poked along and across the Ocean itself in search of the great leviathan - out to its farthest extensions and into its most distant corners, often to regions seldom visited by anyone else. The history of the whalers in the South Seas is thus, in a sense, the epic saga of the discovery, colonisation, contamination and subjugation of the Pacific itself' (Forster, The South Sea Whaler).

        The Right Honourable Lord Yarborough&#39;s yacht, The Falcon of 351 tons

      London: Published by W.J. Huggins, 10 January 1835. Colour-printed aquatint, finished by hand, by C. Rosenberg after Huggins. 16 1/2 x 23 3/4 inches. A fine image of Lord Yarborough&#39;s `new&#39; yacht William Huggins, one of the best English marine artists of the 19th century, served for several years at sea in the service of the East India Company. On his return to London used his intimate knowledge of sailing vessels to gain regular employment painting carefully detailed ship portraits. The present image falls into this category and represents the yacht that Lord Yarborough (1781-1846) had built after he was elected the first commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1824. Huggins&#39; painting was very ably aquatinted by Charles Rosenberg, who translated several Huggins ship paintings to print. This is a superb example of 19th century marine printmaking.

        Eyewitness account of the New York fire of 1835

      Near the intersection of Hanover Street and Stone Street on December 16, 1835, a fire began in a five-story warehouse. Fed by high winds, the fire quickly spread through the city, as sub freezing temperatures prevented the use of fire hoses. After fifteen hours, firefighters were able to stop the progress of the fire by blowing up a series of buildings. This 1835 blaze was the worst in the history of New York. It destroyed over fifty acres of land, 700 buildings, and many of the remnants of the original city. Only two people perished, but financial losses were estimated around twenty million dollars. Most of the insurance companies for local properties immediately went bankrupt. This is a moving, emotional, three page letter written two days after the fire by an eyewitness who sees the hand of a &#147;wise Providence&#148; in the devastation of a &#147;City, bloated in wealth, forgetful of daily favors.&#148; &#147;Property and merchandise to an incalculable amount has been consumed... And those who foolishly believed or fancied themselves secured by Insurance have since discovered that all the Principal offices are more than doubly ruined... Many worthy individuals, who by their industry and economy had acquired a sufficiency, have in a moment, as it were, been deprived of their All. And a vast number of pampered, rich, overgrown Individuals, who boast of their wealth, and feel their only importance, in the distinction which it created, have been reached in a way, least expected, and shaken and sifted after the manner of wheat...&#148;& &

        TWO PRINTED LAND GRANT DOCUMENTS, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT, FOR A FORTY- ACRE PLOT IN CHEROKEE COUNTY].

      [Cherokee County, Ga.]. 1832, 1835. - Two sheets, approximately 10 x 8 inches, attached at bottom with ribbon and wax seal. Old folds. First sheet separating at folds. Second sheet separated at folds; top half in several pieces, bottom half still attached to first sheet. Light soiling from wax seal. About good. A pair of documents concerning a land grant for forty acres of land in Cherokee County, Georgia, surveyed in 1832 and granted in 1835, based on the Land Lottery of 1832. The first document grants forty acres of land in Cherokee County to Sarah Dubose, widow, from Burke County. The land, situated in the fourteenth district of the first section, was surveyed May 31, 1832, and the plot is mapped out at the top of the sheet. It is signed by Willim W. Carnes, Comptroller General, and Thomas Haynes, Treasurer, on either side of the map. The second document, dated Sept. 19, 1835, affirms the grant as according to the "Act to lay out the gold region on the lands at present in the occupancy of the Cherokee Indians, into small lots, and dispose of the same by separate lottery," passed on Dec. 24, 1831. The whole is signed on the front below the ribbon with the signature of Wilson Lumpkin, governor. Georgia used a lottery system to distribute land taken from the Cherokee and Creek Indians. The lot sizes varied, with the largest being up to 490 acres and the smallest being 40 acre lots distributed during the Gold Lottery of 1832. An act passed by the Georgia General Assembly on Dec. 24, 1831, authorized approximately one third of the 160-acre land districts previously set aside for the sixth lottery to be designated as gold districts and divided into 40-acre lots, to be distributed in a separate lottery. This separate lottery was the seventh land lottery, known as the Gold Lottery of 1832. The Cherokees went to court to prevent distribution of lands which they claimed belonged to them, and won the case (Worcester v. Georgia), but Andrew Jackson ignored the decision in his zeal for Indian relocation. Sarah Dubose was the widow of a Revolutionary War soldier who received several plots of land during the lottery.

        HISTORY OF THE COTTON MANUFACTURE IN GREAT BRITAIN

      London: H. Fisher, R. Fisher, and P. Jackson, 1835. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 225 x 140 mm (8 7/8 x 5 1/2"). 1 p.l. (half title), 18, [9]-544 pp., 4 pp. (ads). FIRST EDITION. Recent quite pleasing retrospective dark brown half calf over marbled boards, raised bands, maroon morocco label. With 11 woodcuts in the text and 18 plates (one double-page, one folding), including portraits of inventors, diagrams of machinery, and scenes inside and outside cotton mills. Half title with ink ownership inscription of J. P. Firmstone (see below) dated April 1835. Woodbury, p. 105. Faint creasing in second half of text, minor foxing to plates, other trivial imperfections, but quite an excellent copy, the text fresh, smooth, and clean, and the attractive binding as new. This is an excellent copy of the first printing of a fundamental history of a central industry in Lancashire, issued at the height of the Industrial Revolution. The journalist, politician, and education advocate Sir Edward Baines (1800-90) was the second son and namesake of the editor of the Leeds "Mercury," and worked as a reporter for his father&#39;s paper. His coverage of the unrest in Northern England, particularly the 1819 "Peterloo Massacre" in Manchester, established his reputation as an seeker of justice and advocate of reform. In the present work, he inveighs against the protectionist Corn Laws and comes out firmly in favor of free trade and against government regulation. However, his sense of justice did not seem to extend to sympathy for the children who labored in the cotton mills. Here he argues that their working conditions are not burdensome and are no danger to their health, maintaining that it is only those who were sickly before coming to work in the mills that suffer adverse effects. The original owner who has signed the half title is almost certainly John Parsons Firmstone of Staffordshire, who was a partner in an iron works there. Records in the National Archives show he was active in business from about 1803 to the late 1840s, and he is listed as a subscriber to "A Topographical Dictionary of England," published in 1831. The number of plates varies from copy to copy, but there are never more than the 18 present here.
