        Family Records; Containing Memoirs of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, K. B. , Lieutenant W. Tupper, R. N. and Colonel William De VIC Tupper,

      Guernsey: Stephen Barbet, 1835. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good. A VERY NICE COPY OF THIS UNCOMMON GUERNSEY EDITION WITH RELATED ASSOCIATION. 8vo. pp. 2 p.l., [vii]-xii, 234. with half-title. 3 lithographed plates (incl. frontis.). Very Good++. Rebacked, new spine and paper label. Previous owners bookplate on front end paper. 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!

        Un'Avventura di Scaramuccia. Melodramma comico di Felice Romani. [Piano-vocal score]

(cast list, contents), 5-264 pp. With contemporary signature to title page. Engraved throughout. Binding worn, rubbed and bumped.

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. Reese, Stamped With A National Character 23.

        NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE, and of a Residence in the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829...1833. Inc the Reports of ..Capt. James Clark Ross TOGETHER with Appendix (2 Volumes)

      London: A.W. Webster, 1835.. NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE, and of a Residence in the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833. Including the Reports of Commander, now Captain James Clark Ross and The Discovery of the Northern Magnetic Pole. 1st Edition. xxxiii, (1), 740pp, iilustrated with 31 plates, including 6 maps and charts, some outlined in colour and 2 folding, 24 views, some hand coloured. Appendix: xii, 120pp, cxliv, ciii. Half cream leather with dark brown leather boards, spine ruled with black leather spine labels, titled in gilt. After the embarrassment of Ross's first voyage in which he claimed to see the mountains in Lancaster Sound, it took him a decade to source private backing (he had lost the confidence of the British Admiralty) for a second trip. Ross travelled through Lancaster Sound into Prince Regent inlet and onto Boothia Peninsula, while on the way finding remnants of Parry's ship "Fury" which had been wecked on North Somerset Island. For three consecutive winters Ross and his men were stuck in ice, but used the time wisely to learn mapping, hunting, sewing, transportation and language from the local inuit. Ross also organized lectures, lessons, and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole. In 1832 Ross finally abandoned the ship, and managed to live on supplies found at Parry's wreck. A whaler rescued Ross and his crew in 1833, and remarkably, it was the same vessel which Ross had commanded on his first voyage. Arctic Bib 14866; Chavanne 1450; Sabin 73381. Narrative; Browning, foxing and marking to plates and some pages, previous owners (George Broadrick) signature to title page the frontispiece, the large folding map has been mounted on canvas and very nicely coloured by the previousowner. The appendix has the frontispiece and one plate missing (1 of 3 plates of diagrams of the class hymenoptera so not too much of a loss), some pages still uncut, page lx has a tear across but is complete. Overall in Very Good Condition. Although produced to accompany the Narrative, the Appendix is much less common and may have been printed in a smaller number. [AB 14866] The price is for the set. 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.

        A System of Anatomical Plates of the Human Body, Accompanied with Descriptions and Physiological, Pathological, and Surgical Observations. Dedicated by Permission to The King.

      Edinburgh, W. Lizars & W. Curry, Jun. & Co. n. date, around 1835 (as a re-issued of the edition 1826). Folio. Nice recent hcalf. Gilt back. Top edge gilt. Engraved title,XXVI,241,XXXVI pp. and 103 fine handcoloured engraved anatomical plates (numb. 1-101 and plate 9 a. 32 with extra numb.), all with tissue guards. Throughout a fine clean copy. A few plates with faint offsetting from tissue guards.. An early issue of Lizars' fine anatomical atlas. The title-page is without publishing year, but a bookmark pasted in is dated 1842. The first issue is without the 2 doubleplates (9 a. 32) containing only 101 plates, but in this issue the text is incorporated as a folio-text. John Lizars (1787-1869) was a Scottish surgeon, professor of Surgery and Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh, where the first ovariatory in Britain was performed in 1825. He is mostly known for his important and beautifully illustrated works, among which his "Anatomical Atlas". The excellent plates for the work are engraved by John's brother, William Home Lizars, after John's own dissections. W.H. Lizars (1788-1859), the son of a well known copperplate engraver and printer, was a very successful painter, who ended up continuing his father's engraving- and printing-business after his death. He quickly became known as a highly skilled engraver and printer, and among some of his great achievements are plates for Audubon's Birds of America and the anatomical plates for his brother's great atlas. Waller No 5950 has the atlas with 101 plates, but uncoloured

      4to sheets. 3 pages of manuscript. Near the intersection of Hanover Street and Stone Street on December 16, 1835, a fire began in a five-story warehouse. Fed by high winds, the fire quickly spread through the city, as sub freezing temperatures prevented the use of fire hoses. After fifteen hours, firefighters were able to stop the progress of the fire by blowing up a series of buildings. This 1835 blaze was the worst in the history of New York. It destroyed over fifty acres of land, 700 buildings, and many of the remnants of the original city. Only two people perished, but financial losses were estimated around twenty million dollars. Most of the insurance companies for local properties immediately went bankrupt. This is a moving, emotional, three page letter written two days after the fire by an eyewitness who sees the hand of a “wise Providence” in the devastation of a “City, bloated in wealth, forgetful of daily favors.” “Property and merchandise to an incalculable amount has been consumed... And those who foolishly believed or fancied themselves secured by Insurance have since discovered that all the Principal offices are more than doubly ruined... Many worthy individuals, who by their industry and economy had acquired a sufficiency, have in a moment, as it were, been deprived of their All. And a vast number of pampered, rich, overgrown Individuals, who boast of their wealth, and feel their only importance, in the distinction which it created, have been reached in a way, least expected, and shaken and sifted after the manner of wheat...”

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.

        ORATION ON THE LIFE AND CHARACTER OF GILBERT MOTIER DE LAFAYETTE. DELIVERED AT THE REQUEST OF BOTH HOUSES OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, BEFORE THEM, IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT WASHINGTON, ON THE 31ST DECEMBER, 1834

      Washington: Printed by Gales and Seaton, 1835.. 94pp. Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, ruled in gilt, spine elaborately gilt. Slight darkening to boards, but a near fine copy. In a half morocco box. A copy of Adams' speech honoring the memory of Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. This copy is in a presentation binding of red straight-grained morocco, of the sort favored by the Adams family for decades, and is printed on thick paper. ^John Quincy Adams devoted his entire career to government service. The son of President John Adams, he himself served as the sixth President, as a U.S. Senator from 1803-8, as Secretary of State from 1817 to 1825, and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831 until his death in the U.S. Capitol in 1848. Isaac McKim (1775- 1838) served as aide-de-camp to General Samuel Smith during the War of 1812, and was involved in the defense of Baltimore. When Gen. Smith resigned from Congress to take a seat in the Senate, McKim was elected to fill the vacancy. McKim served in the House of Representatives as a Congressman from Maryland from 1823 to 1825 and from 1833 to 1838. He temporarily left national politics to become a director of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad from 1827 to 1831, and he was also an officer of the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Color of the United States. ^Adams provides a review of Lafayette's contributions to American independence and his activities in the decades after the Revolutionary War, particularly his involvement in the French Revolution and various French governments which followed. In this brief biography, Adams reflects "upon the life and character of a man whose life was, for nearly threescore years, the history of the civilized world - of a man, of whose character, to say that it is indissolubly identified with the Revolution of our Independence, is little more than to mark the features of his childhood - of a man, the personified image of self- circumscribed liberty." An eight-page appendix records Congressional actions related to the death of Lafayette. SABIN 295. JACKSON, p.208.

        THE CRAYON MISCELLANY

      1835. hardcover. [Irving, Washington.] THE CRAYON MISCELLANY. By the Author of The Sketch Book. No. 1. containing A TOUR ON THE PRAIRIES. / No. 2 containing ABBOTSFORD and NEWSTEAD ABBEY. / No. 3 containing LEGENDS OF THE CONQUEST OF SPAIN. [Together, three volumes -- all that were published.] Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard, 1835. 24 pp ads in Vol 1; 8+24 pp ads in Vol 2; 1 page preliminary notice plus 8 pp terminal ads in Vol 3. Original dark green cloth with printed spine labels. 3 vols. <p>First Edition (actually first American editions of the first two volumes). These three pieces, sited in America, Britain and Spain, were written by Irving upon his 1832 return to his home country after his decade in Paris, Dresden, London and Madrid. Immediately upon his return he made the trip to Oregon from which sprang his ASTORIA, after which he bought and settled into the estate near Tarrytown known as "Sunnyside."</p> <p>A TOUR ON THE PRAIRIES was published in April 1835, a month after the London edition. (Irving&#39;s introduction here is entirely different, and longer, than the one in the London edition -- as it expresses his feelings of pleasure of returning to America.) This copy is from the first printing, with "binger" (rather than "harbinger" in the last line of the p. 247 synopsis. It has what is considered the first state of the spine label, with<i>out</i> "No. 1.", and the ad catalogue is Blanck&#39;s state "B".</p> <p>ABBOTSFORD and NEWSTEAD ABBEY was published at the end of May 1835, a few weeks after the London edition. This copy is from the first printing, with the copyright notice on the verso of <i>both</i> title pages. It has Blanck&#39;s spine label state "A", with "Sketch Book" written in bold-face roman rather than italic, and it has the state "A" 32-page ad catalogue.</p> <p>LEGENDS OF THE CONQUEST OF SPAIN was published in October 1835, two months <i>before</i> the London edition. This copy has the preliminary note in Blanck&#39;s Setting "A" (with "advertised" in the last line of the first paragraph). No variants of spine label or ad catalogue are known.</p> <p>All three volumes are in very good-plus condition. The delicate dark green muslin cloth is a little soiled but is surprisingly unworn, just a little rubbed at the corners; one spine label is slightly chipped (but not touching any letters), but all three are in better condition than usually encountered. The second volume does appear to have had its endpapers renewed at an early date. The first volume has scattered light foxing on some leaves, but the other two have essentially none. Due to their separate publication dates, it is not easy today to find all three volumes in comparable condition; one often sees the volumes offered for sale singly rather than as a complete set.

        ANSICHTEN VON MISSIONS=NIEDERLASSUNGEN DER EVANGELISCHEN BRUDER=GEMEINDE. VUES DES ETABLISSEMENS MISSIONAIRES FONDES PAR LA COMMUNAUTE EVANGELIQUE DES FRERES-UNIS

      Basel. [1835].. Four aquatint engravings, 12 1/2 x 18 inches. Laid into original printed wrappers. A very slight bit of soiling or a faint fox mark along edges, but the images are crisp and clean. Near fine, in original condition. In a folding case, gilt morocco label. A lovely suite of four aquatint plates depicting scenes on Antigua, in the Leeward Islands of the West Indies. The engravings were made from original work by L. Stobwasser, with the first plate engraved by Hegi and the following three by Hürliman. The entire project was commissioned by the Moravian Church as a way of promoting their work on the island. The first plate shows slaves at rest before the Moravian mission house in the capital of St. Johns, and the other three show scenes of field workers, plantation houses, and the Antiguan landscape. The plates are as follow: 1) "Vue de l&#39;Establissement des Missions a St. Johns dans l&#39;Isle d&#39;Antigon aux Indes occidentales." A group of seven Antiguans, young and old, male and female, sits around a large tree in the courtyard of the Moravian mission complex. Other islanders are seen walking into or past various buildings. 2) "Vue de Gracehill dans l&#39;Isle d&#39;Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." A lovely landscape with a plantation house situated in the background. In the foreground a female field worker and her three children carry sticks and provisions past the well dressed plantation owners, who carry umbrellas and wear top hats. 3) "Vue de Grac dans l&#39;Isle d&#39;Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." Two plantation workers - a man carrying a hoe and a woman holding an infant - walk uphill as goats forage and romp nearby. Grace Bay and mountains are seen in the background. 4) "Vue de Cedarhall dans l&#39;Isle d&#39;Antigoa aux Indes occidentales." Another view of plantation life on the island. In the foreground a male worker sits beneath a tree smoking a pipe and speaks to a woman who balances a basket on her head. In the middle ground workers hoe a field and cattle graze. Two large homes are seen in the background, situated on rolling hills before larger mountains. An accomplished group of scenes showing agricultural labors and social interaction among the Blacks of Antigua, beautifully engraved and taking full advantage of the fine shadings and tones afforded by aquatint. Not in Abbey. OCLC locates only two copies, at Hamilton College and Oak Spring Garden Library. Very rare. BEINECKE LESSER ANTILLES COLLECTION 820. OCLC 15434253.

        The Little Crow / A Celebrated Sioux Chief/ Painted by J.O. Lewis at the Treaty of Prairie du Chien 1825

      [Philadelphia: published by the author, 1835-36]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after Lewis, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. Wove paper. 17 3/4 x 11 5/8 inches. An insightful portrait, from Lewis&#39; "Aboriginal Portfolio", of Little Crow, a hereditary chief of the Saposia band of the Sioux people. LITTLE CROW, &#39;or Chetan wakan mani (The Sacred Pigeon-hawk Which Comes Walking), was one of a dynasty among Sioux nations. His grandson was the celebrated Little Crow who would lead the Native people during the Minnesota breakout of 1862. Little Crow&#39;s village of Kaposia was on the east bank of the Mississippi below the mouth of the Minnesota River, where St. Paul now stands. Henry Schoolcraft, explorer and ethnologist, and Michigan Governor Lewis Cass, who visited it in 1820, described the village as consisting of twelve large lodges, housing about two hundred families. James Dory, Cass&#39;s secretary, recalled Little Crow as a man "with a great deal of fire in his eyes, which are black and piercing. His nose is prominent and has an aquiiline curve, his forehead falling a little from the facial angle...his whole countenance animated and expressive of a shrewd mind..." Schoolcraft thought him magnanimous. In his memoirs the ethnologist tells the story of how the Sioux chief had discovered a Chippewa robbing his traps. In the deep woods the penalty for this crime was death, but Little Crow handed the thief his traps and rifle. "I come to present you the trap, of which I see you stand in need," he said. "Take my gun also...and return to the land of your countrymen...linger not here, lest some of my young men should discover your footsteps." Little Crow came to Washington in 1824 as head of the Sioux delegation.&#39; (J. D. Horan The McKenney -Hall Portrait Gallery of American Indians New York, 1972, p. 148). Little Crow was painted by Charles Bird King in 1824. Lewis made the painting from which this print was made the following year at the signing of the Prairie de Chien Treaty. Little Crow was the second Indian signer. The Aboriginal Portfolio represents the first attempt to publish a collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding the works of Catlin, and McKenney & 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 Lewis&#39;s portraits derive from these meetings. 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.

        DE LA DEMOCRATIE EN AMERIQUE

      Paris: Charles Gosselin, 1835-1840.. Four volumes. [4],xxiv,367; [4],459; [4],v,[3],333; [4],363pp. plus a colored folding map bound in at the rear of the first part. Half titles. Uniformly bound in contemporary French half green calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, gilt leather labels. A near fine copy. The first edition of both parts of Tocqueville&#39;s famous classic, DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA. Because the two parts were published five years apart, and because the first part was done in such a small number, it is quite difficult to obtain a set of first editions. Alexis de Tocqueville came to the United States in the spring of 1831, accompanied by his friend and fellow student, Gustave de Beaumont. Their original goal was to study the penitentiary system of the United States. After visiting prisons in the East, they undertook a tour of the South as far as New Orleans, ascended the Mississippi, visited the Great Lakes and Canada, and returned via New York, having travelled for nine months. After writing their report on prisons, Tocqueville began work on the first part of DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA in 1833-34 and published it, in an edition of less than 500 copies, in January 1835. The book was an instant success, and numerous editions, many with revisions, followed quickly, so that the second part, first published in April 1840, was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part (another reason why sets of first editions are difficult to obtain). DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA was an immediate and sustained success. There were probably more than fifty editions in English and French published before 1900, besides numerous other translations. Almost from the beginning it enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. Remarkably, it has sustained its appeal generation after generation, as new readers find it speaks to their time with a contemporary voice. Whether perceived as a textbook of American political institutions, an investigation of society and culture, a probing of the psyche of the United States, or a study of the actions of modern democratic society, the book has continued to offer insight and provoke thought since its inception. It has also probably provided commentators and politicians with more quotations than any other work. HOWES T278, T279, "aa." SABIN 96060, 96061. CLARK III:111. Library of Congress, A PASSION FOR LIBERTY, ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE ON DEMOCRACY & REVOLUTION (Washington, 1989).
