        Neuer Orbis Pictus für die Jugend, oder Schauplatz der Natur, der Kunst und des Menschenlebens in 322 lithographirten Abbildungen mit genauer Erklärung in deutscher, lateinischer, französischer und englischer Sprach nach der früheren Anlage des Comenius bearbeitet und dem jetzigen Zeitbedürfnisse gemäss eingerichtet.

      Reutlingen, Johann Conrad Mäcken, 1835.. Tall 8vo, frontispiece, pp. x, 706, [3] index, [1] imprint, and 320 lithograph illustrations on 160 plates illustrating professions, etc., [1] final lithograph; contemporary half roan over marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red gilt-lettered spine label; label with central crease, but an unusually attractive copy. Third Gailer edition (the first published in 1832) and the first to include English of this nineteenth century re-working of Comenius' Orbis Pictus. In his interesting preface Gailer mentions that the religious content has been toned down, and that he has attempted to include information on recent scientific discoveries, such as electricity and the air pump. Apart from that the basic structure of the Orbis Pictus has not changed since Comenius. Images are accompanied by titles and numbers that point to words that are set in short sentences. Pilz, Die Ausgaben des Orbis Sensualium Pictus, pp. 363-66.

        Miss P. Horton as April [Souvenir print]

      G. Madeley London: G. Madeley, [ca. 1835]. How Quickly We Forget the Past [Horton, Priscilla; also known as Priscilla Reed]. Miss P. Horton as April [Souvenir print]. Lithograph by G.E. Madeley. London: G. Madeley, [ca. 1835]. Octagonal lithograph on paper, nicely hand colored. 7 1/2 x 9 1/2", window mounted on matboard. Slight soiling, 1 1/2" closed tear on bottom margin, repaired. This print pictures Horton in the musical opera at the Strand in 1834 called The Twelve Months probably after the text of Gilbert Abbott a Beckett (1811-1856). Figaro in London review of the Twelve Month performance on December 20, 1834: "The third novelty [of the evening] was the piece so long in preparation, called The Twelve Months, which (owing to the excellence of the acting, the extraordinary beauty of the original and selected music, the correctness and splendour of the costume, as well as the excellence of the scenery and the liberal style of all the minor appointments), was eminently successful. . . . Miss P. Horton as April, executed her share of the music admirably, having evidently studied it with great care, and sang a very sweet song, called The Curfew Bell with much taste and sweetness" (p. 204). A popular singer and agile dancer, Priscilla Horton (1818-1895) should be remembered for her Shakespearean acting and for her role--together with her husband--in establishing the German Reed Entertainments. These productions were important in overcoming Victorian attitudes against theatre-going with their reputable and delightful "family entertainment." These productions also produced some of the first operas of Gilbert and Sullivan. Born in Birmingham, Horton began acting at age 10. In London, she sang and danced from an early age at Vauxhall Garden. She attracted notice in 1834 when she played Kate in Sheridan Knowles' The Beggar of Bethnal Green. She acted a brilliant Ariel in W.C. Macready's Twelfth Night in 1839 and again in 1847 for a benefit to buy and preserve Shakespeare's house at Stratford. From 1840 to 1847, Horton joined Benjamin Nottingham Webster's company at the Haymarket Theatre, where she first played Ophelia in 1840. With her beautiful contralto voice she sang as Philadel in Henry Purcell's King Arthur in 1842 and also the role of Acis in Handel's Acis and Galatea. At the Haymarket Theatre from 1843-47, she appeared in many of the Planche Christmas and Easter pieces. During these years, she also created the girl/boy roles of Myrtina/Fortunio in Planche's Fortunio and His Seven Gifted Servants (1843). Paul Buczkowski writes, "Horton brought a lively intelligence to her roles, and was almost as highly lauded in tragedy (for instance, as Ophelia in Hamlet and the Fool in King Lear) as in comedy. She would appear in most of Planche's later works, substantially enriching them." A contemporary publication, The Athenaeum (March 21, 1840) carried the following review of a production of Hamlet: "The only striking novelty in the performance is the Ophelia of Miss P. Horton, which approaches very nearly to the wild pathos of the original in one scene, and is touching and beautiful in all" (p. 238). In 1855, after she had married the composer Thomas German Reed, Horton and her husband began to present ìMr. and Mrs. German Reed's Entertainments," which consisted of brief, small scale, family friendly comic operas. In the early and mid-Victorian era, the respectable middle classes regarded the theatre in general as sinful. Therefore, the Reeds shrewdly called their establishment the "Gallery of Illustration" and their productions "entertainments" to emphasize their refined propriety. From 1869 through 1875, William S. Gilbert wrote six works which were produced for Thomas German Reed's "Gallery of Illustration." References: Buczkowski, Paul, "J. R. Planche, Frederick Robson, and the Fairy Extravaganza," Marvels and Tales: Journal of Fairy Tale Studies 15, no. 1 (2001): 42B65; Figaro in London, vols. 3 4 (1834). A rare print. Not located at the Shakespeare Folger Library, Harvard Theatre College, or the British Museum. A portrait by Daniel Maclies featuring Priscilla Horton as Ariel in The Tempest (oil on panel; 67.5 x 54.5 cm.) can be found in the collection of the Royal Shakespeare Company (see http://www.rsc.org.uk/explore/collection/the-collection.aspx).

        [Manuscript]: A Tour Through Denmark, Sweden, Finland, to Petersburg from there through Prussia, Brunswick, Hanover and Holland in the Summer of 1835

      Octavo. Figured cloth with leather spine label ("Tour in the North of Europe 1835"). 233 closely and neatly written pages, mostly written on one side of each leaf (although it varies between recto and verso), bound with nicely engraved letterheads and illustrations of the various locales visited and described, some are hand colored, also with a folding hand-colored map of Denmark published by Thomas Kelly in London, 1834 (see below). All illustrations on unnumbered pages. Modest wear to the spine label, text block fallen slightly forward, front hinge just a touch tender, still a nice, very good or better volume, with the interior fine.Authorial Signature of Capt. Kelly dated January 1835. Kelly, about whom we could find little, traveled with "my usual traveling companion Alderman Kelly" on the John Bull Steam Packet to Hamburg. This is followed by a thorough description of their activities and of each of the many localities they visited, with exceptionally detailed remarks on travel, the geography, architecture, population, the paintings and other art displayed in the churches, palaces, and museums, the hotels and their cuisine (or lack of it), weather, observations, and entertainments by the various British consuls.Capt. Kelly's companion, born Thomas Kelly (1772-1855), was according to at least one source, "a Dick Whittington character," a man who had risen from modest beginnings to be Lord Mayor of London and a respected Alderman. After his father's bankruptcy, in about 1788, Kelly was sent to work at Hoggs, the publisher and bookseller, on Paternoster Row after which he became a noted printer and publisher. He became Lord Mayor of London in 1836, the year following the trip described in this diary, with his official mayoral portrait painted by Mary Martha Pearson in 1837.A lovely travel diary filled with rich details and personal anecdotes. .

        [The Aboriginal Portfolio]

      [Philadelphia: Lehman & Duval, 1835-1836]. Folio. (17 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches). Three letterpress advertisement leaves. 72 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Lewis by Lehman & Duval.Expertly bound to style in dark purple morocco over purple cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands, tooled in gilt and blind on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, marbled paper endpapers. First edition. 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 64 plates), but very few with nine parts (72 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 title page).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.

        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

      New York: D.S. Stone, [1835]. Folio. (15 x 12 1/2 inches). Engraved throughout, title, 1p. contents list, 63 hand-coloured engraved plates.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.

        CANTI. Edizione corretta, accresciuta, e sola approvata dall?autore.

      presso Saverio Starita 1835 In-16 p. (mm. 160x95), p. pelle mod., ricca decoraz. oro ai piatti (dorso a cordoni rifatto), pp. 176, così composto: frontesp. (al verso ?Stamperia dell?Aquila di V. Puzziello), Indice, Notizia intorno alle edizioni di questi canti, i Canti (pp. 7-170), Note (pp. 171-176). Lo Starita pubblicò nel 1835 la prima edizione dei 34 canti completi: 23 sono dell?ediz. fiorentina (1831) e 11 i nuovi: Il passero solitario - Consalvo - Il pensiero dominante - Amore e morte - A se stesso - Aspasia - Sopra un bassorilievo antico sepolcrale - Sopra il ritratto di una bella donna - Palinodia al marchese Gino Capponi - Imitazione - Scherzo. Alla fine compaiono 5 frammenti di cui tre inediti. La nostra è probabilmente una edizione ?contraffatta? la cui esistenza fu segnalata da Francesco Maroncini in "Canti di G. Leopardi. Edizione critica.. Bologna, Cappelli, 1927", pp. XXIV, nota 3: ?di questa edizione (Starita, 1835) che fu soppressa per ordine della Censura borbonica, si fece ben presto a Napoli una contraffazione abbastanza scorretta e poco o punto nota ai bibliofili. Essa si riconosce subito dalla genuina per vari contrassegni di cui i principali sono: ha pp. 176, senza Errata; la p. 176 comincia ?chi; mi lagno? (invece di ?ripetizione delle cose?) e nella penultima riga ha l?errore ?tremento? (invece di ?tremendo?); la p. 175 comincia con ?scritta da? (invece di ?ad Georg.?); l?ultimo verso di p. 170 (Frammento ?Dello stesso?) ha il fallo tipografico ?Lad iubbetà? (invece di ?la dubbia età?); nell?Indice il canto XXII è indicato come XIXI; ecc. In più il ns. esemplare ha a p. 136, ultimo rigo, ?se non se quanto,? (invece di ?se non se quando?); a p. 116, settimo rigo ?Prole degna di piante!? (invece di ?prole degna di pianto,?), errori non elencati dal Maroncini. Anche di questa, come di quella vera, si conoscono ben pochi esemplari superstiti?. "Edizione di grande rarità". La nostra edizione non è citata da nessuna altra bibliografia di riferimento, i.e.: Mazzatinti / Menghini - Catalogo Fondo Leopardiano (Comune di Milano, 1958) - Cappelletti (che per l?edizione Starita, 1835, precisa ?è rarissima, tanto che si è dubitato se veramente sia mai esistita?).

Erste Ausgabe. - Ohne den "Appendix" Band, erschienen im selben Jahr. - Sir John Ross (1777-1856) unternahm 1818 eine Nordwestpassage Expedition und endteckte das Kap Alexander und das Kap Isabella, benannt nach seinen Schiffen, das Thulegebiet und kam erstmals in Kontakt mit den Inuits. Seine Einschätzung, dass der Lancaster-Sund keine Passage bot, da er den Weg durch einen Berg, den er Croker Mountain nannte, verbaut sah. Wie sich herausstellte, war dieser Berg eine Luftspiegelung und diese Fehlleistung kostete ihn seine Reputation. 1829 unternahm er, gesponsert vom Gin-Fabrikanten Felix Booht, eine weitere Expedition, begleitet von seinem Neffen James Clark Ross. Sie drangen in weitgehend unerforschte Gebiete vor und 1831 schliesslich entdeckten sie den magnetischen Nordpol auf der Halbinsel Boothia Felix. 1833, nach seiner Rückkehr nach London, wurde Ross wie eine Held gefeiert, mit zahlreichen Auszeichnungen und Orden geehrt und in den Bath-Orden aufgenommen. - Exlibris auf Innendeckel.

        New York Rail Road Surveys, from State-Line to Hudson River at Albany [album of 14 original topographic maps]

      Albany, n.d. [ca. 1835]. (RAILROADS) Oblong folio (17 x 25 inches). 14 maps in pen and ink on paper, partly colored in outline, legend on first map, each map with sectional drawing, farm names, landmarks and mileage identified in ink. Contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, institutional bookplate on front pastedown, front board detached, title leaf loosened, some soiling and chipping at edges, drawings clean and fresh with occasional minor soiling in margins . Beautifully executed and richly detailed maps of the 40-7/8 mi. route from Greenbush (Rensselaer) past Groat's Inn at Chatham Corners to the Massachusetts state line at Stockbridge where it joins the Western (Mass.) Railroad. With a wealth of information on the terrain, farms, and villages of the district. The Castleton and West Stockbridge Railroad was organized in 1830 but no line was built; the name was changed to Albany and West Stockbridge in 1836. The route was opened from Greenbush to Chatham in December 1841, where it connected with the Hudson & Berkshire track between Chatham and State Line. The following year Albany and West Stockbridge completed a 200-foot bore at Canaan (the State Line Tunnel). The relevant map in this survey does not indicate designs for a tunnel. William Clark Young (1799-1893), West Point class of 1822, notable railroad engineer who is credited with introducing the use of cross ties in American rail roads, is also identified as the surveyor for the Hudson and Berkshire Rail-Road in its report of 1835. Map I shows the Hudson at Albany; map X shows Chatham Corners and the junction of the Hudson & Berkshire line

        The Rialto Bridge, Venice

      William James Muller, 1835. WILLIAM JAMES MULLER'S CAPTIVATING WATERCOLOR OF THE RIALTO BRIDGE, VENICE Watercolor over pencil heightened with touches of bodycolor Paper size: 17 3/4" x 29 1/2"; framed size: 29" x 40 3/4" Signed l.r.: W. Müller/1835 (?) Provenance: Anonymous sale at Sotheby's, 10th October 1974, Lot 46 Exhibited: (Probably) London, Society of British Artists, 1836, no.344 The British fascination with travel to continental Europe began in the Georgian period with the institution of the Grand Tour. A nobleman's education was not considered complete without first-hand experience of the monuments and antiquities of ancient Italy, complementing his knowledge of Greek and Latin texts. As the classical scholar Conyers Middleton stated in 1729, "At our setting out through France, the pleasures that we find, like those of our youth, are of the gay fluttering kind, which grow by degrees, as we advance towards Italy, more solid, manly, and rational, but attain not their full perfection until we reach Rome." Later in the century, as the archaeological sites at Herculaneum and Pompeii were excavated, the Tour extended far south of Naples. . Book.

        LIFE AND AGE OF WOMAN.|THE

      A. Alden Barre, MA: A. Alden. n.d., circa 1835. Broadside, 21 1/2 by 18 inches framed under glass.. A seven-figure image of the stages in a woman's life from one to ninety years of age by Albert Alden (1812-1883). The 30 year-old woman is on the highest step, when she is "at the height of her physical and intellectual powers." Age 18 is described as the "most critical stage" in a woman's life. At age 90 "we see all that remains of her who once tripped the light fantastic." Appears to be a companion to Alden's woodcut "The Life and Age of Man," ca. 1830 (Princeton University Main Catalog). Both illustrate 19th century conceptions of morality and gender roles, depicting the woman as nurturer and spiritual guide. Verse from the Old Testament book of Proverbs on the traits of the ideal woman cited. Featured is an illustration of a woman mentoring a young girl reading the Scriptures. Stained and creased. .

        Pah-She-Pah-How

      K.C. Biddle 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.

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.

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!

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."

        Kee-Me-One or Rain A Chippeway Chief. Painted at Fond du Lac 1827 by J. O. Lewis

      [Philadelphia: published by the author, 1835-36]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. 15 15/16 x 11 1/8 inches. A striking image from Lewis's "Aboriginal Portfolio." KeeMeOne (or KeeMeeWun) is listed as a signer of the Fond du Lac treaty of 1826 between the United States and the Chippewa, which re-confirmed the Prairie du Chien treaty ceding rights to mineral expliration and mining in Chippewa land. This treaty was also signed by Lewis Cass, Thomas McKenney, James Otto Lewis and Henry Schoolcraft. 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.
