Toning and foxing text, light browning in places, internally clean. * Originally part of the Territory of Louisiana, then the Territory of Missouri, Arkansas Territory was established in 1819. It became a state in 1836. The first territorial compilation, a brief 149-page volume that included statutes of Missouri, was published in 1821. Steele and Campbell's alphabetically digested compilation was the second and last published during the territorial period. As indicated by such sections as Indians, Slaves and Vice and Immorality, it offers an interesting perspective on Arkansas when it was beginning its transition from a territory to a state.

        Meyers Universum, eller Billeder og Beskrivelser af det Seeværdigste og Mærkværdigste i Naturen og Kunsten paa den hele Jord.

      Oversat af Professor, Ridder Oehlenschläger. 6 bind (af 8) i 3. Det bibliografiske Institut i Hildburghausen/C. Steen, København 1835-40. Tvær-4°. 46+47 + 48+47 + 47+45 stålstukne plancher med tilhørende tekstblade. Samtidige halvlæderbind med rygforgyldning. En del tekstsider temmelig gulplettede. Enkelte tavler lidt gulplettede. Enkelte tekstsider med gl. reparationer uden teksttab.. Med stålstikkets gennembrud som reproduktionsform omkring 1830 åbnedes nye perspektiver for billedgengivelse i bøger. Detaljerede billeder kunne nu fremstilles i et langt større antal end tilfældet havde været med stik fra de blødere kobberplader. Den tyske forlægger Joseph Meyers "Universum" er et tidligt bud på, hvad bogbranchen i dag betegner som samtryk, og giver et smukt fremstillet og yderst varieret billede af verden efter Napoleonskrigene og før 1848. Den danske tekst leveredes af ingen ringere end "Skjaldenes Adam"

         HISTORICAL DISCOURSE, DELIVERED BEFORE THE CITIZENS OF CONCORD

      Concord N.H.: G. F. Bemis, 1835. First edition, first state with signature mark 3 absent. Bound with the ORIGINAL BLUE WRAPPERS present. Recent cloth backed marble boards, uncut as issued. Scattered foxing throughout, several leaves with slight tears to fore edge, wrappers archivally backed but still a nice copy of Emerson's first separately published book or substantial publication preceded only by contributions to journals and a broadside. The rarity of this pamphlet can be explained by the  small number of copies and the fire in the town clerk's office that destroyed many of them. Quite scarce in any condition but especially so with the wrappers as most copies were rebound and the wrappers discarded, losing printed elements important to scholars and collectors. Two elusive pieces of paper, being to Mr. Emerson's Discourse what dust wrappers are to modern first editions.

        Family Records; Containing Memoirs of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, K. B. , Lieutenant W. Tupper, R. N. and Colonel William De VIC Tupper,

      Guernsey: Stephen Barbet, 1835. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good. A VERY NICE COPY OF THIS UNCOMMON GUERNSEY EDITION WITH RELATED ASSOCIATION. 8vo. pp. 2 p.l., [vii]-xii, 234. with half-title. 3 lithographed plates (incl. frontis.). Very Good++. Rebacked, new spine and paper label. Previous owners bookplate on front end paper. A small private bookplate belonging to Mrs. John Carey, Castle Carey, on the front pastedown., , 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. PLUS, even more interesting, this copy contains an additional 3 page Memoir of the Late Lieut. Carré Tupper, R.N. (3 p.) AFTER the supplementary section!

(cast list, contents), 5-264 pp. With contemporary signature to title page. Engraved throughout. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped.

First performed in Milan at La Scala on March 8, 1834. The Italian composer Ricci achieved "a notable success with Un'avventura di Scaramuccia, written to a witty libretto, part romance, part theatrical satire, by Felice Romani." Grove online "Ricci's is one of the more individual voices of Italian opera of the period. His chief gift was for comedy, to which he brought not only a complete mastery of the traditional devices but also a new, robust buffo manner characterized by a wealth of bouncing allegretto melodies, mostly in duple time, and a not infrequent use of folktune."

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

      [Philadelphia: published by the author, 1835-36]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. 17 15/16 x 11 1/4 inches. 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.

Appendix: xii, 120pp, cxliv, ciii. Half cream leather with dark brown leather boards, spine ruled with black leather spine labels, titled in gilt. After the embarrassment of Ross's first voyage in which he claimed to see the mountains in Lancaster Sound, it took him a decade to source private backing (he had lost the confidence of the British Admiralty) for a second trip. Ross travelled through Lancaster Sound into Prince Regent inlet and onto Boothia Peninsula, while on the way finding remnants of Parry's ship "Fury" which had been wecked on North Somerset Island. 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. In 1832 Ross finally abandoned the ship, and managed to live on supplies found at Parry's wreck. A whaler rescued Ross and his crew in 1833, and remarkably, it was the same vessel which Ross had commanded on his first voyage. Arctic Bib 14866; Chavanne 1450; Sabin 73381.

Overall in Very Good Condition. Although produced to accompany the Narrative, the Appendix is much less common and may have been printed in a smaller number. [AB 14866] The price is for the set.

The first issue is without the 2 doubleplates (9 a. 32) containing only 101 plates, but in this issue the text is incorporated as a folio-text. John Lizars (1787-1869) was a Scottish surgeon, professor of Surgery and Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh, where the first ovariatory in Britain was performed in 1825. He is mostly known for his important and beautifully illustrated works, among which his "Anatomical Atlas". The excellent plates for the work are engraved by John's brother, William Home Lizars, after John's own dissections. W.H. Lizars (1788-1859), the son of a well known copperplate engraver and printer, was a very successful painter, who ended up continuing his father's engraving- and printing-business after his death. He quickly became known as a highly skilled engraver and printer, and among some of his great achievements are plates for Audubon's Birds of America and the anatomical plates for his brother's great atlas. Waller No 5950 has the atlas with 101 plates, but uncoloured

[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.

        Eyewitness account of the New York fire of 1835

      4to sheets. 3 pages of manuscript. 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 “wise Providence” in the devastation of a “City, bloated in wealth, forgetful of daily favors.” “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...”

        ORATION ON THE LIFE AND CHARACTER OF GILBERT MOTIER DE LAFAYETTE. DELIVERED AT THE REQUEST OF BOTH HOUSES OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, BEFORE THEM, IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT WASHINGTON, ON THE 31ST DECEMBER, 1834

      Washington: Printed by Gales and Seaton, 1835.. 94pp. Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, ruled in gilt, spine elaborately gilt. Slight darkening to boards, but a near fine copy. In a half morocco box. A copy of Adams' speech honoring the memory of Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. This copy is in a presentation binding of red straight-grained morocco, of the sort favored by the Adams family for decades, and is printed on thick paper. ^John Quincy Adams devoted his entire career to government service. The son of President John Adams, he himself served as the sixth President, as a U.S. Senator from 1803-8, as Secretary of State from 1817 to 1825, and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831 until his death in the U.S. Capitol in 1848. Isaac McKim (1775- 1838) served as aide-de-camp to General Samuel Smith during the War of 1812, and was involved in the defense of Baltimore. When Gen. Smith resigned from Congress to take a seat in the Senate, McKim was elected to fill the vacancy. McKim served in the House of Representatives as a Congressman from Maryland from 1823 to 1825 and from 1833 to 1838. He temporarily left national politics to become a director of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad from 1827 to 1831, and he was also an officer of the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Color of the United States. ^Adams provides a review of Lafayette's contributions to American independence and his activities in the decades after the Revolutionary War, particularly his involvement in the French Revolution and various French governments which followed. In this brief biography, Adams reflects "upon the life and character of a man whose life was, for nearly threescore years, the history of the civilized world - of a man, of whose character, to say that it is indissolubly identified with the Revolution of our Independence, is little more than to mark the features of his childhood - of a man, the personified image of self- circumscribed liberty." An eight-page appendix records Congressional actions related to the death of Lafayette. SABIN 295. JACKSON, p.208.
