While this might set alarm bells ringing, it is worth noting that since Charles Kelsall bequeathed his library to Morden College in 1857 they have sold many of his books at auction to raise money, a fact they proudly state in their own literature. Overall a nice copy of this classic geological work in the original publishers binding and with some gatherings still unopened. An uncommon survivor.

With his nephew James Clark Ross as second-in-command, Ross and his party embarked in the small paddle-steamer Victory on May 23, 1829. The survivors were rescued at Prince Regent's Inlet on August 26, 1833. Despite the loss of their ship in the ice, the explorers had achieved a great deal, including the discovery of the North Magnetic Pole by James Clark Ross, the discovery and mapping of several new regions, and the demonstration of the dietary importance of fresh meat and oil on such expeditions, despite incredible hardships, only three men died on the voyage. An important Arctic journey cont. a lot about the Eskimos, their habits, clothing, language and numerous observations on natural history, geology and meteorology. . Very Good. 1835. First Edition.

        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)

      All First Editions 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 27

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. Additional postage may be necessary. US$2400

Image size: 465 x 705 mm Picturesque scene of the Temple of the Concord in the Roman Forum, with the Arch of Septimius Severus and the Church of St Luca and Martina in the background. Piranesi included scenes of daily life of Romans of all classes on the foreground. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. "Seeing that the remains of the ancient buildings of Rome, scattered for the most part in gardens and fields, are being day by day reduced by the injuries of time or by the greed of their owners who, with barbarian licence, secretly demolish them to sell the rubble for modern houses, I decided to preserve them in these plates."

Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely set of the Weimar Claccisist's works. Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) was the sole son of a military doctor. His father was deployed forhis earlychildhood, but obtained a recruiting post in Schwabisch at the conclusion of the Seven Years' War in 1763. The family settled in the neighbouring town of Lorch, where the young Friedrich recieved instruction in the classics pursuant to his parents ambition that he should become a pastor. In 1766, having not been paid for three years, Schiller's father took another posting under the Duke of Wurttemberg. Here, the boy came to the attention of the Duke and was enrolled in the military academy which bears his name (the Karrlschule Stuttgart). At theacademy Schiller was exposed to the works of Goethe and Rousseau, and enjoyed the opportunity to discuss his favoured classical works with like-minded students. He passed out as a medical doctor and obtained a regimental post, going absent without leave to attend the first proper performance of his seminal play, the Robbers. The Robbers was a smash hit-with Schiller gaining overnight notoriety and eventually being made an honourary French citizen in light of its radical sympathies. Nevertheless, he wasarrested and charged with going AWOL, and Lord Wurttemberg forbade him from publishing any further materials. Two years later, he escaped Stuttgart and eventually settled in Weimar, where he continued to publish historical works. Here we have his complete works, including the Robbers, Don Carlos, Mary Stuart, and the Wallstein Trilogy. Bound in half-calf with lovely cloth boards, these volumes are sure to impress with their broad, clear margins and broadstroke text. Condition: Bound in oldhalf morocco. A trible rubbed. Lovely bottle-green cloth boards and maroon leather. Gilt lettering and embellishment to spines. Marbled edging. Worn at corners and bottomsof boardsand along joints. Internally, very firmly bound.

        GEORGIA SCENES, CHARACTERS, INCIDENTS, &c. IN THE FIRST HALF CENTURY OF THE REPUBLIC. By a Native Georgian

      Augusta, Ga. 1835.. 235pp. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on front pastedown, flyleaf, and titlepage. Newspaper clipping pasted to rear fly leaf. Tanning and foxing, some light wear to text. A good, solid copy. In a half morocco box. The rare first edition of a classic of southern literature and manners, GEORGIA SCENES... is written in the form of a series of sketches set in frontier Georgia at the beginning of the 19th century. Although in fictional form, the book is such realistic social history that it presents one of the best pictures of life in that time and place, and straddles the line between fact and fiction. Longstreet said that his purpose was "to supply a chasm in history which has always been overlooked - the manners, customs, amusements, wit dialect, as they appear in all grades of society to an ear and eye witness of them...there is scarcely one word from the beginning to the end of the book that is not strictly GEORGIAN." The book stands at the beginning of a long line of southern humor. HOWES L448, "b." STREETER SALE 1168. DE RENNE I, p.445. GEORGIANA 28. SABIN 41936. WRIGHT I:1721. BAL 12946.

        Pah-She-Pah-How

      Philadelphia: K.C. Biddle, 1835. unbound. very good. Lehman & Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 21.5 x 15.5". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Pah-She-Pah-How was also known as the "Stabber" because he wanted revenge against the white man and was not to be pacified. His long hair symbolized his unsatisfied revenge. Chipping and some tape residue along edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Veduta dell'Arco di Settimio Severo.

      Paris: Vedute di Roma (Views of Rome). 1835-37 - Excellent condition. Copper plate engraving on watermarked laid paper. Image size: 475 x 715 mm Charming scene of Septimius Severus Arch in the Roman Forum. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. "Seeing that the remains of the ancient buildings of Rome, scattered for the most part in gardens and fields, are being day by day reduced by the injuries of time or by the greed of their owners who, with barbarian licence, secretly demolish them to sell the rubble for modern houses, I decided to preserve them in these plates."

        [THE PRODIGAL SON]

      Hartford, Ct.: D.W. Kellogg & Co., [nd, ca. 1835].. Four lithographed sheets, 14 x 19 inches, each with an image 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Each with some wear and small tears around the edges, light creasing and foxing. Good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet These lithographs relate the biblical story of the prodigal son, updating it to take place in America of the early 19th century. The first image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON RECEIVING HIS PATRIMONY. He gathered it all together and took his Journey into a far Country." It depicts the prodigal son standing at a table in his family library, as his father gives him his patrimony and his brother looks on. An interesting aspect of the image is the numerous thick folio volumes in the library's built-in bookshelves, especially three very large and thick volumes which reside in a bookcase cut deeply into the wall. The second image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON REVELLING WITH HARLOTS. He Wasted his Substance with Riotous Living," and depicts the prodigal and two other males enjoying food, drink, and pleasures of the flesh with three women in a bawdy house. The next image depicts "THE PRODIGAL SON IN MISERY. He would fain have filled his belly with the Husks that the swine did eat." In this scene the prodigal is seated in a barnyard, his clothes tattered, as swine root around at his feet. The final image is "THE PRODIGAL SON RETURNED TO HIS FATHER. Father I have Sinned against Heaven, and in thy Sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son." The son, in tattered clothes, is accepted back into the bosom of his family by his father, mother, and a sister, and their federal-style home is depicted in the background. Daniel Wright Kellogg and his brothers were noted lithographers in 19th-century America. They were second only to Currier & Ives in their output, and produced images in a wide variety of subject areas. They issued a noted series on Temperance issues, and Peters ascribes this "famous" set of Prodigal Son images to that group. They were "the only group of whom it is at all possible to say that they were for a time near rivals of Currier & Ives" - Peters. PETERS, AMERICA ON STONE, pp.242-47. FOWBLE 353-56.

        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...?

        SUN-A-GET OR HARD TIMES A POTTAWATOMIE CHIEF

      [Philadelphia: Published by the author, 1835-36].. Lithograph, colored by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. Sheet size: 17 15/16 x 11 1/8 inches. Very good. A striking image from Lewis' 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.

        A Comprehensive Atlas Geographical, Historical & Commercial

      Wil. D. Thicknor/ Wiley & Long Lg 4to, period quarter sheep and marbled boards, marbled endpapers, illustrated with 66 engraved maps with hand colored outlines. Lacks spine, top cover detached and back cover almost detached, front free endpaper to frontispiece loosely laid in (alomost detached), occasional dampstains (including to title & fronstispiece), light foxing and soiling, a few margin tears, internally very good. Despite the somewhat poor condition of the binding, this is a rather scarce and attractive early American atlas. It contains several early maps, including 28 full page maps of the Americas, most pertaining to the United States. The map of the United States shows the Oregon Territory, but the Southwestern portion, including California and Texas shown as still belonging to Mexico. San Francisco Bay is oddly identified as the "Bay of Sir F[rancis] Drake." The eastern United States features its railroads and canals, and Michigan includes the "Huron District", which would be modern day Wisconsin. In addition to several other separate state maps, there are also maps of Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and India. Phillips 770.

        Caragoli. Reise-Mittheilungen aus Ungarn und Italien. Zweite Ausgabe (in einem Bande)

      Berlin, Haude und Spener 1835.. Mit lithograph. Portrait. XVI, 1 Bl., 418 S., 1 Bl. HLdr. um 1900. Nicht bei Tresoldi, Engelmann, Griep/Luber u.a. - Der "stattliche, gebildete" preußische Hauptmann Otto Ferdinand Dubislav von Pirch (1799 - 1832), als "Knabe ein Liebling von Jean Paul Friedrich Richter" (ADB), hat einen längeren Urlaub zu einer ausgedehnten Reise nach Serbien, Ungarn und Italien genutzt. Während er die "Reise in Serbien im Spätherbst 1829" noch selbst veröffentlichen konnte, musste "Caragoli", eingeleitet durch einen Lebensabriss Pirchs aus der Feder seines Freundes Heinrich von Brandt, posthum erscheinen. Auf über 160 Seiten beschreibt Pirch Ungarn, Slavonien und Kroatien; in Italien bereiste er Fiume, Triest, Venedig, die Terra ferma, Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Brescia, Mailand und den Comer See. Höhepunkt dieser Reise war der Aufenthalt in Venedig: ausführlich beschreibt der Autor das gesellschaftliche Leben und einen Opernbesuch (gegeben wurde Giuseppe Persianis "Costantino in Arles") während des Karnevals, die Ankunft des Erzherzogs Rainer, des Vicekönigs des lombardisch-venezianischen Königreichs, und die Eröffnung des Freihafens (Porto-Franco) von Venedig. - Gering berieben.
