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) “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'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.” (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 “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...”

        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'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's `new' 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' 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.

        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'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.

        Souvenirs de Rio de Janeiro

      1835]. 1835 - This is a lovely copy of an exquisite and rare book; the plates are so finely coloured and heightened that they might easily be taken for original gouaches, the workmanship being the equal of the very best Swiss view books of this period. This copy is entirely unaffected by oxidization which frequently occurs with this work.Steinmann was Swiss by birth and emigrated to Brazil in 1825. He set up a studio in Rio and contributed illustrations to a number of works printed there between 1827 and 1830 when he was under contract to lecture at the Military Archive. He seems to have returned to Switzerland in about 1832 where he published a series of large loose views of South America and the above album. . According to Borba the book was issued with a variety of dates from 1834 to 1839 .The views shown are as follows: "Bota Fogo"; "Vista Tomada de Sta. Thereza"; "St. Joao de Carachy, a Praya Grande"; "Moro de Castello & da Praya d'Ajuda"; "Novo Friburgo (Colnia Suissa, ao Morro Queimodo)"; Igreja de St. Sebatiao"; "Largo de Paço"; "Ilha das Cobras"; "Plantaçao de Café"; "Caminho dos Orgaos"; "Vista de N.S. da Gloria et da Barra do Rio de Janeiro"; "Vista do sacco d'Alferès & de St. Cristovao". Each plate is ascribed to a particular artist, with 9 being by Steinmann himself, 2 by Kretschman and one by Victor Barrat. They were all engraved by Frederico Salathe. Borba de Moraes, p. 839; cf. Sabin, 88693.

        Voyage a Buenos-Ayres et a Porto-Alégre, par la Banda-Oriental, les Missions D´Uruguay et la Province de Rio-Grande-Do-Sul

      1835 - Handsomely illustrated work on Rio Grande do Sul and Buenos Aires, “full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section”. 1835. Havre. J. Morlent. In 4to (222 mm x 150 mm). 1 [frontispiece] + 2 ff. + 612 + 1 [blank] + 4 ff. + folding map & 3 lithographed plates + 1 [blank]. Contemporary half black chagrin, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, rubbed, still a very attractive binding. Very good copy overall, foxed –particularly to plates- as always. First edition. The illustrations show a view of Buenos Aires from the Port, a gaucho enlacing an ox, a Porteña in daily clothes, a Porteña dressed for Church, and a folding map. The author travelled through Argentina and Brazil, time during which he participated of the commerce and industry of the region. “Arsène Isabelle, a French enthusiast of travel literature, decided one day to journey around the world. He fitted himself out elaborately for the venture, and chose the Rio de la Plata as a starting place. (.) He arrived in March 1830 in Buenos Aires, which was in the throes of a revolution. The goods he had purchased for selling or trading purposes immediately proved to be absolutely unsuitable, and he sold everything at a great loss. Later, he started a candle factory, which he sold at the end of four years. He then resolved to start his travels, and journeyed across Argentina, Uruguay, and Rio Grande do Sul until 1838. Isabelle's book, in spite of having been written in the style of a literate businessman, is full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section. It is one of the few books of the time that describes journeys across Rio Grande do Sul. The author was a guest of Bompland (.). He also visited the German colony of São Leopoldo in Porto Alegre, and the missions” (Borba de Moraes). Isabelle (1806 – 1879) was a French traveller and businessman; a lover of travel literature, he decided to travel around the world, beginning with Buenos Aires. His arrival at Buenos Aires was less than opportune, arriving at the time of a Revolution, causing him a loss of his capital. He then carried on to Uruguay and Brazil; where he spent most of his time in Rio Grande do Sul. Sabin, 35239. Borba de Moraes, I, 420 (“not easy to find today”).

        DELINEATIONS OF AMERICAN SCENERY AND MANNERS [binding title, extracted from ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY].

      Edinburgh: Adam Black, 1831-1835. - Various paginations. Modern three-quarter brown morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light shelf wear. Bookplate on front pastedown. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. These extracts from ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY pull together in one volume all sixty of the short travel pieces that Audubon interspersed among the descriptions of birds in the first three volumes of the text for his famous ornithological work. These "episodes" were intended to divert the general reader and are of considerable literary and historical interest since they describe persons and events on the American frontier from Newfoundland to Florida. One of the classic texts of American natural history. Includes accounts of his experiences in the Florida Keys, along the Mississippi, and in Louisiana and Kentucky in the 1820s and '30s. The sketches were later collected and published separately, in 1926. HOWES A389. MEISEL III, p.406. SABIN 2366. CLARK II:179 (ref). SABIN 2366.

His work was published in February, 1835....It is an invaluable account of Texas as it appeared to an intelligent observer in 1834."

        Voyage a Buenos-Ayres et a Porto-Alégre, par la Banda-Oriental, les Missions D´Uruguay et la Province de Rio-Grande-Do-Sul

      Handsomely illustrated work on Rio Grande do Sul and Buenos Aires, ?full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section?. 1835. Havre. J. Morlent. In 4to (222 mm x 150 mm). 1 [frontispiece] + 2 ff. + 612 + 1 [blank] + 4 ff. + folding map & 3 lithographed plates + 1 [blank]. Contemporary half black chagrin, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, rubbed, still a very attractive binding. Very good copy overall, foxed ?particularly to plates- as always. First edition. The illustrations show a view of Buenos Aires from the Port, a gaucho enlacing an ox, a Porteña in daily clothes, a Porteña dressed for Church, and a folding map. The author travelled through Argentina and Brazil, time during which he participated of the commerce and industry of the region. ?Arsène Isabelle, a French enthusiast of travel literature, decided one day to journey around the world. He fitted himself out elaborately for the venture, and chose the Rio de la Plata as a starting place. (...) He arrived in March 1830 in Buenos Aires, which was in the throes of a revolution. The goods he had purchased for selling or trading purposes immediately proved to be absolutely unsuitable, and he sold everything at a great loss. Later, he started a candle factory, which he sold at the end of four years. He then resolved to start his travels, and journeyed across Argentina, Uruguay, and Rio Grande do Sul until 1838. Isabelle's book, in spite of having been written in the style of a literate businessman, is full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section. It is one of the few books of the time that describes journeys across Rio Grande do Sul. The author was a guest of Bompland (...). He also visited the German colony of São Leopoldo in Porto Alegre, and the missions? (Borba de Moraes). Isabelle (1806 ? 1879) was a French traveller and businessman; a lover of travel literature, he decided to travel around the world, beginning with Buenos Aires. His arrival at Buenos Aires was less than opportune, arriving at the time of a Revolution, causing him a loss of his capital. He then carried on to Uruguay and Brazil; where he spent most of his time in Rio Grande do Sul. Sabin, 35239. Borba de Moraes, I, 420 (?not easy to find today?).

      Mostly at sea, on board the barque "Sarah" of London, April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835). - 4to (19.5 x 16.5 cm). [191] ff. Including paste-downs and about 55 blanks. The journal with an engraved view as frontispiece , 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view mounted on 1 page. The lecture notes with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. - Including: [Anatomical manuscript]. Morse, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue].[London], November-December 1828. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse reflects on Arabian navigation and Arabian explorers, including the deservedly famous Ibn Battuta. "The Arabians like the Chinese are said to have employed the compass to guide them through the trackless sands of the desert or to enable them at the hours of prayer to direct their faces with precision towards the city of Mecca and tomb of the prophet. In the sixteenth century moreover when the Portuguese first visited the Indian seas they found that the Arabians are the chief navigators of those seas [.]". - Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Those around Madagascar indicate he was on the barque Manchester, but from at least 11 December 1831 to his arrival back in England on 14 March 1833 he was on the barque Sarah, a 600 ton ship sailing out of London. In it he spent a year in the Seychelles 11 December 1831-15 December 1832, including Make Island, Bird Island, Praslin Island and La Digue. - In very good condition. The binding is dirty and abraded, and the boards slightly warped, but it remains structurally sound. A fascinating and unusual ship's journal with numerous maps, kept in the unused leaves of the author's illustrated anatomical lecture notes from a few years earlier. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Histoire naturelle générale et particulière de tous les genres de coquilles univalves marines a l'état vivant et fossile, publiéee par monographies ou description et classification méthodique de toutes les espèces connues jusqu à ce jour, représentées en couleur avec la figure et l'anatomie d'un assez grand nombre de Mollusques nouvellement découverts

      Paris, privately published, 1835. Folio, 13 fine lithographic plates by Prêtre, finely hand-coloured. Original printed wrappers.* This large-paper publication was the start of what was to be a complete treatise on the marine gastropods of the world. Except for a part on Oliva, published in 1840 after a five year delay, this was all that was published. Later, Pierre Louis Duclos (d. 1853) contributed to the the series by Chenu, "Illustrations conchyliologiques ou description et figures de toutes les coquilles connues vivantes et fossiles..." which had an even grander scope but was not finished either. The first names of Duclos were a mystery for many years until the Californian malacologist Scott Jordan discovered them in a letter. His year of birth is still unknown. In accuracy of form and colour, the plates, by Prêtre, are among the best produced in the 19th century. A very good, complete set, almost without foxing (some light, marginal spotting to a few plates, some waterstaining to lower margin of a few plates, not affecting the figures. The wrappers are those of the genus Oliva, corrected in an old hand. Caprotti, p. 187; Nissen ZBI, 1170.
