        Spa, A.

      Maréchal, (1835). 8:o. 13 s. Litet hål i titelbladet med liten textförlust. Häftad i gråpappersomslag. Fläck på bakre omslaget. Handskriven lapp insatt på främre omslagets insida. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3319. Den handskrivna lappen rör Gustav IV Adolf med text på nederländska och ett par strofer på latin, undertecknade H. D. Decurius. En ständig plåga för den kringirrande före detta svenske kungen var de skaror av barn som förföljde honom på gatorna och ropade "Schwedenkönig". Vid ett tillfälle, i nederländska Haarlem, tog exkungens tålamod slut. Han stövlade in på ett poliskontor och krävde att de skulle agera. När hans begäran lämnades oaktad gick Gustav Adolf till högre instans, ända upp till den nederländske kungen. Att ropa "Koning van Sweeden" efter överste Gustafsson, som ju abdikerat 1809, var en skymf mot den svenska konungatiteln och mot alla legitima kungligheter. Kung Vilhelm menade att det var fråga om oskyldiga pojkstreck, och att han i vilket fall inte kunde personligen ingripa i en rättssak. Gustav Adolf lämnade landet och lät i Belgien publicera dessa akter i målet, försedda med en surt formulerad dedikation till kung Vilhelm, "car si votre Majesté ne fait pas respecter les lois de l'état, moi, je saurai respecter ceux de l'honneur." ("för om ers majestät inte respekterar rikets lagar, vet jag att respektera hederns".)

      Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1835. First Edition. Hardcover. On the first blank is an ink Lyceum Library notation dated 1836, and there is a faint "withdrawn" stamp on the front endpaper well below Adams's writing. Also below it are a number of pencil names. At the rear are two pencil notations regarding Adams's presention of the book to the Lyceum on 19 March 1836. Near Fine and scarce. Contemporary full red straight-grained morocco nicely and professionally rebacked. Original blue wrappers bound in. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front blue wrapper: "The Lawrenceville Lyceum/from/John Quincy Adams." Books inscribed by Adams are quite uncommon. THIS TITLE IS MOST OFTEN FOUND SIGNED ON A PRESENTATION SLIP PASTED OR TIPPED INTO THE BOOK RATHER THAN IN THE ACTUAL BOOK AS IT IS HERE. THAT, OF COURSE, DOES NOT EQUATE TO A SIGNED BOOK BUT RATHER TO AN AUTOGRAPH ADDED TO THE BOOK. DON’T BE MISLED. The first child of a president to become a president, the first president to be a published poet, and the first president to be photographed, Adams was certainly one of our most intelligent presidents and one of the greatest humanitarians to hold that office. He is perhaps best known for two accomplishments outside his term: the authorship of the Monroe Doctrine as secretary of state and his heroic, successful argument before the Supreme Court to free the Amistad slaves.

        Traveling the trail in 1835 that would eventually become Interstate 94 Autograph letter, signed

      Comstock, Kalamazoo, Michigan: March 16, 1835. Soft. Very Good/A warm and enthusiastic letter home to family in New York's Hudson Valley from a settler near Kalamazoo, Michigan, dated two years before Michigan statehood. The letter, from one Daniel Lawrence, is posted at Comstock to a relative in Warwarsing, NY. It gives a vivid account of traveling west on the woodland trail which later became M-17, then US 12, and ultimately I-94, going "about one third of the way by marked trees." The letter goes on to discuss winter weather, commodities prices (pork, beef, oats), wildlife and game, useful trees and shrubs, and, finally, the indigenous population: "On good soil the Indians make a great deal of sugar and sell it to the white people. They are very friendly, and come to swap with us frequently…." Daniel Lawrence died in Climax, MI, 18 July 1880, aged 87 years.& & & . Two leaves, 192 x 324 mm, with integrated address and remains of wax seal. Occasional stains and usual folds. Wax seal tear affects few letters.

      Philadelphia: Published by J.O. Lewis, 1835-1836.. Seventy-two handcolored lithographic plates. Extra- illustrated with an original parts wrapper from part number 3. Folio. Contemporary calf "bound by R. Allen. Late S. Bennett...Mercury Office, Nottingham" (see binder's label on front pastedown), covers paneled in gilt, titled in gilt on upper cover "Aboriginal / Port-Folio"; expertly rebacked to style, spine gilt, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Very good. One of the rarest 19th- century American color plate books and the first major American color plate book on American Indians. Scarcer than McKenney and Hall's HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES, Prince Maximilian's REISE IN DAS INNERE VON NORD- AMERICA or CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO, Lewis' work records the dress of the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Shawnee, Sioux, Miami, Fox, Iowa, and other tribes at treaties of Prairie du Chien, Fort Wayne, Fond du Lac, and Green Bay. THE ABORIGINAL PORT FOLIO was published in Philadelphia by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in ten parts, with each part containing eight plates. Given the size of the undertaking, the first nine parts were issued remarkably quickly, and appeared monthly between May 1835 and January 1836. The reason for this haste is probably that Lewis was aware that the imminent appearance of the first part of McKenney and Hall's HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA would adversely affect his subscriber numbers. The evidence of the surviving copies suggests that his fears were well-founded as there are a number of sets made up from eight parts (with sixty-four plates), but very few with nine parts (seventy-two plates) and ten-part sets with the full complement of a frontispiece/title-leaf and eighty plates are virtually never found: only the Siebert copy is listed as having sold at auction in the past twenty-five years, and there are only about a half dozen or so other recorded sets (the Siebert set, and one other, are the only two examples to include the titlepage). The binding of the present set can be dated to between 1836 and 1847: in 1836 Samuel Bennett died and Richard Allen took over as proprietor of the Nottingham Mercury. In 1847 the proprietorship passed to Thomas Bailey. 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 was living 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 during the course of each. Virtually all of the originals of the images published here were executed by Lewis in this period. Subsequently, many of the Lewis portraits 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. HOWES L315. SABIN 40812. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 23.

        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 .

      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?.

      [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.

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;
