        A pair of albums, each titled "Sketches of Costume by Coke Smyth", containing original watercolours: the artwork for an unpublished work which was to have been entitled "The Costume of the principal Nations of Europe from the beginning of the 13th to the end of the 17th century"

      [London]: [1835-]1842. 2 volumes, quarto. (11 3/4 x 1`0 3/4 inches). 2 ink manuscript titles "Sketches of Costume by Coke Smyth 1842", 125 card leaves on cloth guards, with 125 tipped-on original pencil and watercolour drawings by Smyth (sheet sizes approx. 8 7/8 x 7 7/16 inches, mounted recto only, one drawing per card leaf), all with integral pencilled captions beneath, three with additional manuscript notes in pencil by Queen Victoria, with 1 additional leaf (9 3/4 x 11 inches) with original pencil sketches by Prince Albert (including a recognisable self-portrait of Albert in medieval costume) mounted at the back of one volume. Contemporary green morocco bound for "P. & D. Colnaghi & Co. Pall Mall East", covers bordered with fillets in gilt and blind, elaborate corner- tooling in blind, spine in six compartments with semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets and small arabesque tools, the compartments bordered in gilt and blind with fillets, gilt turn-ins, cream- glazed endpapers. Neat repair to spine of one volume. An important discovery: two albums of watercolours of Royal costume by one of great early Canadian painters, used by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and the basis for a never published book on the subject. Coke Smyth's connections to the Governor of Canada and his family are probably what led to him showing Queen Victoria and her Consort, Prince Albert, the present albums. The Royal couple were planning a bal costumé, or fancy-dress ball, with an historical theme and clearly looked through the albums searching for inspiration. The Queen appears to have particularly liked two of Coke Smyth's drawings and marked them as possible patterns for her and her husband's costume. Prince Albert seems to have had his own ideas, which he sketched out on the sheet bound at the back of one of the albums. The ball took place at Buckingham Palace on 12th May 1842, and Coke Smyth was encouraged to record the costumes, a selection of which were published in James Robinson Planché's Souvenir of the Bal Costumé, given by Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, at Buckingham Palace, May 12, 1842 The drawings from the original dresses by Mr. Coke Smyth ; the descriptive letterpress by J.R. Planché. (London : Printed by William Nicol, Shakespeare Press, for P. and D. Colnaghi, 1843). This very rare folio work included a coloured title and 52 coloured plates and evidently enjoyed enough success to encourage Coke Smyth to attempt to publish a further work on a similar theme, using the drawings in the present albums as the artwork. In conjunction with Colnaghi's he went ahead and issued a prospectus, but a lack of subscribers meant that the scheme was not taken any further, and the present albums remain the only pictorial record of what might have been. There is a further particularly interesting facet to these albums: in addition to the 103 drawings that are obvious candidates for inclusion in a work on historical costume, there is also a significant selection of 22 drawings that are of contemporary costume as worn in Italy, Greece and the Turkish Empire. These appear to have been drawn from life and would therefore have been drawn by Coke Smyth during his journey to and stay in Constantinople. According W. Martha E. Cooke's entry in the catalogue of the W.H. Coverdale Collection of Canadiana, John Richard Coke Smyth was born in 1808 "the only son of Richard Smyth and Elizabeth Coke (c.l777-c. 1851) ... More commonly known as Coke Smyth, with which name he signed his works ... Smyth's passport, still in the family's possession, would suggest that he was a gentleman of means who travelled widely on the Continent ... In 1835-6, Smyth visited Constantinople .... His on-the-spot sketches were published in Illustrations of Constantinople made in the Years 1835-6 (London, 1837), which comprised 26 lithographic views arranged and drawn on stone by John Frederick Lewis ... Subsequently he was engaged as drawing master to the household of John George Lambton (1792-1840), 1st Earl of Durham. It was in this capacity in April 1838 that Smyth accompanied Durham, newly appointed Governor to the Canadas, and his party on board HMS Hastings. During Durham's brief tenure of office, which terminated with his resignation that October, he travelled extensively in Lower and Upper Canada. Thus there was ample opportunity for Smyth ... to sketch firsthand the Canadian scene at the time of the Mackenzie-Papineau Rebellions. ... Several of these drawings provided the basis for the 23 lithographic views dedicated to the Earl of Durham in Sketches in the Canadas (London, c.1840) by Coke Smyth. Smyth exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1842 and 1855 and also at the British Institution and Society of British Artists up to 1867. In 1842, Messrs. Paul and Dominic Colnaghi exhibited and later published Smyth's costume figures which were commissioned by Queen Victoria to illustrate a commemorative volume of the Queen's masked ball en-titled Souvenir of the Bal Costumé (London; 1843). Several of the drawings used for the lithographic plates are in an album in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Smyth specialized in costume studies. He approached Colnaghi with a view to publication of an album ... [for which he issued a ] Prospectus & Specimen of a proposed work on the Costume of the principal Nations of Europe from the beginning of the 13th to the end of the 17th century. Smyth intended to etch the plates personally and provide accompanying text; however, it appears that the number of subscribers was insufficient to publish the work. Smyth is known to have experimented in lithography, and produced a self-portrait among his associates at drawing class. He also painted portraits of his family and made some fine architectural drawings. One of the latest known books to include his illustrations was Henry Beveridge's A Comprehensive History of India.(London, 1871). Coke Smyth died in 1882." Substantial collections of Coke Smyth's work are very rare, however individual examples can be seen in the Public Archives of Canada (Ottawa); the John Ross Robertson Collection in the Metropolitan Toronto Central Library; the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh.

        Théorie mathématique de la chaleur.Paris: Bachelier, 1835.

      Presentation copy of this classic work on the mathematical theory of heat, inscribed by Poisson to Marie-Jean-Pierre Flourens, the founder of experimental brain science and a pioneer in anesthesia. Stanitz 353 (this copy); Roberts & Trent 260; Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica 3683. <br/><br/> "This is the first edition of an important work in which Poisson formulates equations for the distribution of heat in bodies. As opposed to Fourier, who maintained in his <i>Mémoire analytique de la chaleur</i> that the conductibility of heat was contained in the motion of flux, Poisson showed that it must be derived from an absorptive coefficient restoring the neglected functional dimensions. <br/><br/> "Following his preliminary notes, Poisson devotes chapters to the laws of radiating heat, laws of cooling for bodies which have the same temperature at all points, the movement of heat to the surface of a body of any form, digression on the integrals of equations with partial differences, and a digression on the manner of expressing arbitrary functions by series of periodic quantities followed by a continuation of the same digression. Additional chapters are devoted to the distribution of heat in a bar whose transversal dimensions are very small, distribution of heat in spherical bodies, and distribution of heat in various bodies, especially in a homogenous sphere originally warmed in any manner, and the movement of heat in the interior and at the surface of the earth. He concludes with a series of three notes, the first relative to the equation of movement for heat at the interior of bodies, the second on molecular radiation, and the third relating to section 152 of the text."

        Les Roses, peintes par P.J. Redouté, décrites et classées selon leur ordre naturel, par C.A. Thory. Troisième édition sous la direction de M. Pirolle...

      Paris, St. Petersbourg, chez P. Dufart, chez J.F. Hauër et cie., 1835. 3 volumes. Royal-8vo (238 x 165mm). With 1 colour printed frontispiece showing a wreath of wild roses, 2 lithographed portraits, one of Redouté and one of Thory, 3 coloured plates of botanical detail and 180 fine colour-printed stipple engraved plates finished by hand. Contemporary red half calf, gilt and blind-stamped ornamented spines, with 2 black gilt lettered labels, marbled sides (some minor repair to hinges). A fine copy of the last and most comprehensive edition of Redouté's famous work on roses. It was first published in folio from 1817 to 1824 with 169 plates, and was followed by 3 octavo editions of which the present last edition contains 20 more colour-printed plates than the previous 8vo editions. The text is by Thory who added to this edition a 'traité du Rosier contenant la description scientifique de ses caractères et de ses organes, son histoire et sa culture', as well as 14 descriptions of rose varieties not found in the other editions. Pierre Joseph Redouté is one of the most famous flower painters of the Western civilisation. Through him the long tradition of botanical book illustration reaches under the patronage of Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon I, its climax. His best known work is 'les Roses'. "Redouté started painting his 'Roses' at Malmaison. Joséphine, whose full name, as we know, was Marie-Joséphe-Rose, had an ardent interest in these flowers, and around 1810 she was growing several hundered of varieties in her gardens, a collection unique for its time. The 'Roses' is still another, and this time posthumous, tribute to Joséphine's contributions to the arts of horticulture and botanical illustration. She did not live to see the book produced, but in many respects the plates are still Joséphine's roses" (A catalogue of Redoutéana pp. 25-26). Stock, 'Rose Books', 2371; Nissen BBI, 1599.

        Médianoches [ 2 Tomes - Complet - édition originale ]

      Librairie de Dumont 1835 2 Tomes en 1 vol. in-8 reliure postérieure demi-basane marron, dos lisse, ex-libris armorié poussé au plat sup., Librairie de Dumont, Paris, 1835, 352 pp., 321 pp., 1 f. n. ch. (tables), 1 f. blanc Très rare exemplaire de l'édition originale des "Médianoches" de Paul Lacroix, plus célèbre sous sous pseudonyme de "Bibliophile Jacob". "Je me souviendrai toute ma vie, si longue qu'elle puisse être, de la fin du mois de mars 1832, lorsque le choléra éclata tout-à-coup dans Paris, après le plus joyeux caranaval qui ait jamais bondi et hurlé à la Courtille". A l'image de Boccace fuyant la peste de Florence, l'auteur met à profit la réclusion imposée par l'épidemie de choléra pour tenir de "ces veillées de plaisir, qui en Espagne" s'appelaient médianoches ; ce nom, qui veut dire le milieu de la nuit, leur fut conservé en France ... Dans ces médianoches, on inventait mille distractions pour les sens et pour l'esprit." Sous ce prétexte, Paul Lacroix nous propose 12 merveilleuses "médianoches" pleines d'autant de finesse et de piquant que d'une érudition jamais pesante. Un très rare exemplaire de cet ouvrage, véritable rareté bibliophilique, dans lequel l'auteur nous présente notamment les mésaventures de l'un de ses ancêtres, "le carme Louis Jacob, auteur du Traité des plus belles bibliothèques du monde", qui "fut, sur la fin de sa vie, bibliothécaire de M. Achille de Harlay, premier président au parlement de Paris" !

      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.

        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.

        [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&#39;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&#39;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.

(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?).

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.

(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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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.

      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. .

      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.

Steele and Campbell's alphabetically digested compilation was the second and last published during the territorial period.
