        Malerische Reise in Brasilien

      First edition, with the text in German -simultaneously published to the French edition-, a brilliant copy of this masterpiece of Brazilian 19th century scenery and costumes. Rugendas´ plate-book occupies a distinguished position in Brazil´s already rich iconography; it is accurate, comprehensive, and strikingly beautiful. The 100-hundred plates show the aboriginal costumes, city views, architecture, landscapes, and urban scenery; in the latter we can appreciate a fascinating visual record of Brazil´s important slave history, with 20 plates illustrating the subject. The country´s celebrated landscapes are also well represented, with some 30 plates recording cities like and Bahia Rio de Janeiro. All the plates are after German artist Maurits Rugendas (1802 - 1858), famous for his landscapes and ethnographic subject of the Americas (mostly Brazil, Chile, and Argentina); Rugendas was influenced by earlier artistic works produced after explorations of the American, namely those of Johann Baptist von Spix and Carl von Martius. In the early 1820´s Rugendas travelled to Brazil, soon hired by Baron von Langsdorff in the capacity of illustrator for the scientific expedition to Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo, which allowed him a first glance of the country´s scenery, his employment however would soon come to an end, when he is replaced by Adrien Taunay; still, the author remained in the country on his own until 1825, travelling through Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco, Mato Grosso, and other regions, recording his impression mostly in drawings and watercolors. His skill as draughtsman left us with a wonderful book in two respects, first, because of it´s beauty, which the reader can enjoy and be transported into a day and time which no longer exists, second, the importance as an iconographic record of Brazil´s life in the first quarter of the 19th century, defined as of "genuine documentary value, which are of utmost importance for the study of Brazilian life at the beginning of the 19th century" (Borba de Moraes, at the same time criticizing somewhat the text); Pedro Correa de Lago compares it to Debret "Inferior apenas em termos de fama ao de Debret, o album de Rugendas, de concepcao diversa, e mais rico em vistas e menos atriado pela reconstituicao de cenas urbanas. Mas ambos sao extremamente valiosos na observacao precisa da realidade brasileira" (Pedro Correa do Lago, Brasiliana Itau, pp. 192.). Sabin 73934. Borba de Moraes, 754. Bosch 377.

        [Panoramic view of Sao Salvador].

      A strikingly beautiful aquatint view of Sao Salvador, published by Steinmann, after the designs of Kretschmar; it´s dimension and topographical and architectonical precision make this an invaluable testimony of how the city looked in the early 19th century: "Steinmann publicou tamben duas vistas de igual tamanho de Pernambuco, e uma da Bahia, todas rarissimas e muito estimadas pelos colecionadores, pelo impacto de suas cores intensas e pela precisao de detalhes topograficos e arquitetonicos" (Brasiliana Itau, p.81). The view is taken from the sea, allowing the viewer a comprehensive sight of the city, it´s buildings, structures, churches, and landscape; a few small skiffs and boats are portrayed, including one carrying well-dressed passengers. The key below the view, identifying the main buildings, is in manuscript, most likely a 19th century hand. The buildings identified are: Eglise de la Conception, Le Palais, Maison de L´Opera, Convent des Benedictines, Eglise St. Pierre, Convent Jerusalem, Consul de Hamburg, Eglise des Affites, Consult Anglais, Consul Francois, Jardin public, Fort Gamboa (Forte de Sao Paulo da Gamboa), S. Victoire. Besides the importance for the iconographic history of Bahia, this view is also important for the knowledge of Brazil´s colonial architecture, as Bahia was one of the earliest cities to be founded.

        Pah-She-Pah-How

      E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1835 - Hand-coloured lithograph by Lehman & Duval after C. B. King. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Pashepahaw was a Sauk chieftain, known as the Stabber. He was a colleague and ally of Keokuk, and, therefore, opposed to Black Hawk. When Pashepahaw visited Washington in 1824, McKenney asked about him and learned that he had been insulted by an Indian agent (one of McKenney's men) and had promised to kill the man. A medicine man named Taimah learned of this and, though quite ill, traveled a considerable distance to warn the agent, who was ready when Pashepahaw arrived, and thus a frontier war was prevented. Pashepahaw was forced to back down, but kept his hair long thereafter. He lived long enough to be painted as an old man by George Catlin, who called him "a very venerable old man." McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk and Wapello. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

      London. A.W. Webster. 1835.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. folio. 30.5x 23cm, the First Edition, xxxiii,[1],740p., with 6 maps (1 folding coloured in outline), and 25 engraved plates (including 6 coloured lithographs, 3 mezzotints, & 16 steel engraved), in full light mahogany calf, wide gilt decorated raised bands, full gilt decorations and borders in the panels, crushed black morocco label, gilt ruled and wide blind decorated borders on the boards, gilt roll decoration on the board edges, marbled endpapers and edges, usual foxing and or transfer on some plates, (none on the colour plates), very good to fine condition, the nicest contemporary binding on this book I can remember. (cgc) T.P.L. 1808. A.B. 14866 & 14863. Lande 1426. Sabin 73381. Owing to the mistaken contention of the first voyage, Ross was not offered another command and this expedition was privately financed. It resulted in the discovery of King William Sound and the extensive survey of Boothia Peninsula, and the discovery of the magnetic pole by James Clark Ross. The dietary importance of fresh meat and oil in the particular climate was first ascertained on this voyage so that all but three men survived four winters and the loss of the Victory. .

        Drawings of Fungi Specimens found in Switzerland and Germany

      Switzerland, Germany, circa 1835. Manuscript mycology field notes in the form of pencil drawings with scientific annotations, classification references, and occasionally with the month in which a living specimen was either collected or observed in its habitat, made by an unidentified mycologist / botanist, and illustrating various species of fungi - edible, medicinal, and toxic. Comprising some 240 drawings on individual trimmed leafs, each mounted thematically with others of its type, with brass pins to the inside of folio double leafs. Text is in German, with some plant names also in Latin. The lot housed in the author's original string-tied portfolio boards, heavy green cardstock with manuscript inscription to front. This is a most uncommon manuscript work, profusely illustrated with pencil drawings, encyclopaedic in its scope, devoted strictly to the study and classification of mushrooms, and dating to formative era medicinal mycology. Numerous specimens shown were, and still are, popular and beneficial in homeopathic treatments. The present work is contemporary to notable pioneer mycologists such as Elias Magnus Fries, Christian Hendrik Persoon, Anton de Bary, and Lewis David von Schweinitz, though its author is unknown. The notes suggest that the writer observed living fungi specimens, between the months of May and October 1830, in Switzerland, Germany, and possibly London, drawing them on the spot, and subsequently identifying and classifying them according to the works of eighteenth century botanists. Specific regions identified include Münsterlingen and Scherzingen in Switzerland, as well as St. Katharine, which may be the ancient "Royal Peculiar" jurisdiction by the Tower of London which became a civil parish until 1895. In the nineteenth century, St. Katharine's by the Tower grew to be a village, flanking the banks of the River Thames. Aiding to date the work, one of the drawings is dated 2 June 1835. The drawing of honey fungus is annotated "Agaricus melleus" as it was then classified in the Agaricus genus, and later changed to the Armillaria genus in 1871. In addition, a single leaf found at the front of the volume is watermarked with a cameo and the name of Leopold Grosherzog von Baden, who in 1830 became the Grand Duke of Baden, the papermaker's name partially seen, André B.C. von Ac... Finally, the large folded leafs to which the drawings are mounted, are forged Whatman paper, watermarked "J.B. Whatman" with the crossed mid-section to the 'W' and the letter 'B' being clear revelations of forgery. [In the early nineteenth century, Whatman watermarks were commonly forged in France, Germany and Austria, as unscrupulous papermakers sought to gain from the name and reputation of Whatman.] The manuscript notes make frequent reference to "Schaeff." referring to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) who was an authoritative eighteenth century mycologist in Germany. [Jacob Christian Schaeffer was a German botanist, mycologist, zoologist, theologist, and clergyman, born in Saxony, residing at Regensberg for several years, and who wrote several botanical works between 1758 and 1767. From 1762 to 1764, he wrote four richly illustrated volumes on mycology, "Natürlich ausgemahlten Abbildungen baierischer und pfälzischer Schwämme, welche um Regensburg wachsen". In botany, "Schaeff." refers to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) whereas "Herr.-Schaeff." refers to Dr Gottlieb August Wilhelm Herrich-Schäffer (1799-1874).] Some examples found in the present lot of manuscript drawings and field notes: Agaricus violaceus. Schaeff. [Cortinarius violaceus] commonly known as the violet webcap or violet cort, a fungus in the webcap genus Cortinarius native across the Northern Hemisphere. The fruit bodies are dark purple mushrooms. Though they are edible, the appearance of these mushrooms is more distinctive than their taste. The species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, and has undergone several name changes. Christiaan Hendrik Persoon placed it in the Section Cortinaria of Agaricus in his 1801 work "Synopsis Methodica Fungorum". Cortinarius was established as a 'genus' by English botanist Samuel Frederick Gray in the first volume of his 1821 work "A Natural Arrangement of British Plants", where the species was recorded as Cortinaria violacea, 'the violet curtain-stool.' Agaricus melleus. Schaeff. [Armillaria mellea] commonly known as honey fungus, which causes Armillaria root rot in many plant species and produces mushrooms around the base of trees it has infected. They are edible but some people may be intolerant to them. The species was originally named Agaricus melleus by Danish-Norwegian botanist Martin Vahl in 1790; it was transferred to the genus Armillaria in 1871 by Paul Kummer. Agaricus galerituculatus. Schaeff. [Mycena galericulata ] a mushroom species known as the common bonnet, the toque mycena, or the rosy-gill fairy helmet. It is quite variable in color, size, and shape, which makes it somewhat difficult to reliably identify in the field. The mushrooms have caps with distinct radial grooves, particularly at the margin. Mycena galericulata is saprobic, and grows on decaying hardwood and softwood sticks, chips, logs, and stumps. It can also grow from submerged wood, which may give it a terrestrial appearance. The type species of the genus Mycena was first described scientifically as Agaricus galericulatus by Italian mycologist Giovanni Antonio Scopoli in 1772. It was sanctioned under this name by Elias Magnus Fries in his 1821 Systema Mycologicum, however, that same year, Samuel Frederick Gray transferred the species to the genus Mycena. Agarica maculatus. Schaeff. also known as the spotted agaricus, and at the time of this work, considered to be rare according to Mrs. Hussey. A leading mycologist of her day, Mrs. Anna Maria Hussey (1805-1853), wife of scientist and rector Thomas John Hussey described it as having only two types. Her collections eventually led to the publication of her two-volume work published between 1847 and 1855 and titled, "Illustrations of British mycology: Containing figures and descriptions of the funguses of interest and novelty indigenous to Britain." Edward Hamilton's 1852 title "The Flora Homeopathica... Medicinal Plants..." lists it for natural remedies. The 1884 issue of American Homeopathic Dispensatory also lists it as a medicinal plant. Agaricus is primarily a remedy for use by medical homeopaths because of its sphere of influence on the nervous system. Throughout the volume we also find references to "Bull." - the botanical abbreviation for Jean Baptiste François Pierre Bulliard (1752-1793) a French physician and botanist. Bulliard's Dictionnaire Elémentaire de Botanique (1783) contributed to the expansion and consolidation of botanical terminology and the Linné system. It was especially important in the area of the mycology, containing descriptions of 393 out of 602 table mushrooms. Significant species described by Bulliard include the cep (Boletus edulis), the common inkcap (Coprinopsis atramentaria) and the poisonous livid pinkgill (Entoloma sinuatum). Two sections of the present work are devoted to the genus Boletus and together include thirty-four (34) diagrams with descriptions. Some of these were observed at Münsterlingen in the canton of Thurgau, Switzerland. At least one was observed nearby at Scherzingen. The writer also notes Bulliard in relation to his drawing of an Agaricus pseudoaurantiacus, a wild and edible mushroom first mentioned by Bulliard in his "Herbier de la France" published in 1783. At least one reference is made to Röhl., being the citation for a botanical name associated with Johann Christoph Röhling (1757-1813), a German botanist and clergyman of Gundernhausen, near Darmstadt, and the author of an important treatise on German flora titled "Deutschlands Flora" first published in 1796. He also published a work on mosses of Germany titled "Deutschlands Moose" (1800). He was the taxonomic authority of the plant genus Melandrium (family Caryophyllaceae). The plant genus Roehlingia (family Dilleniaceae) was named after him by August Wilhelm Dennstedt. Historically, mycology was a branch of botany, because, although fungi are evolutionarily more closely related to animals than to plants, this was not recognized until a few decades ago. Mushrooms have been widely used in homeopathic remedies for centuries, especially in traditional Chinese medicine. Although medical mycology is a fairly recent sub-discipline of medicine, having gained ground since the Second World War, medico-mycological investigations began as early as 1842, at Greifswald in Germany, when Wilhelm Baum (1799-1883) was appointed to the chair of surgery of the university. In 1846, Carl Ferdinand Eichstedt (1816-1892) discovered a fungus to be the cause of the contagious nature of the skin condition pityriasis versicolor. Before all of this, German physician Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), created the system of alternative medicine called homeopathy, publishing his scientific approach in a medical journal in 1796.

        Album d'un pessimiste] Oeuvres posthumes

      Librairie de Dumont 1835 - - Librairie de Dumont, Paris 1835, In-8 (13x20cm), 310pp. et 409pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale, très rare. On distingue 3 états : le premier, le nôtre, se distingue par la page de titre intitulée Oeuvres posthumes, comme pour le faux-titre. Le second état substitue une nouvelle page de titre intitulé Album d'un pessimiste, le faux-titre indiquant toujours Oeuvres posthumes (c'est l'état connu et décrit par Clouzot). Le troisième état connaît une nouvelle page de titre à la date de 1836, à nouveau intitulé Album d'un pessimiste, avec le faux-titre oeuvres posthumes (c'est l'état le plus courant) ; par contre la mention d'une notice de L'Héritier a disparu pour laisser la place à la mention d'une notice biographique (extraite de la Biographie universelle de Michaud). La notice de L'Heritier a été ôtée dès le premier état, en effet, de crainte de froisser certains contemporains cités, l'éditeur a préféré ne pas l'insérer. Les oeuvres de Rabbe sont précédés du poème de Victor Hugo : A Alphonse Rabbe, qu'on retrouvera dans Les chants du Crépuscule, parus en 1836. Ces Oeuvres posthumes furent réunis et édités par le neveu de l'écrivain Charles Rabbe, qui bénéficia pour ce faire d'une subvention du ministère de l'instruction publique. Reliures en demi chagrin noir d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs orné de filets gras à froid. Titre et tomaison dorés. Nom du possesseur en queue : Gauger. Petites traces de frottements en coiffes. 2 coins un peu émoussés. Rousseurs très pâles éparses. Bon exemplaire. Ecrivain noir et sombre, marqué par l'échec et l'inanité des choses, mort en 1829 des excès de l'opium (on ne sait si sa mort fut un suicide ou un dosage malencontreux d'opium), Rabbe enchantera Baudelaire, rencontrera la sollicitude touchante de Victor Hugo, et André Breton ne l'oubliera pas dans son anthologie. Toutes les pages de Rabbe sont pleines d'un romantisme maladif et fiévreux, hantées par le pessimisme et le désespoir dont la principale oeuvre qui fera sa renommée : Philosophie du désespoir, est emblématique de sa profonde mélancolie et de son culte pour la mort. Les essais, commentaire et maximes, poèmes en prose jalonnent ces Oeuvres posthumes, modèle du romantisme noir. On retiendra avec le plus grand intérêt la rareté exceptionnelle de ce tout premier état de l'oeuvre majeure de Alphonse Rabbe inconnu à Clouzot et à la plupart des bibliographes. La Bibliothèque Nationale de France ne possède que le second état, et les catalogues français ne possèdent que des exemplaires à la date de 1836. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition, very rare. Bindings in black half chagrin. 310pp. et 409pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Harper were pioneers in the area of series publishing. Harper's Family Library, advertised as the "cheapest series of popular works ever published," grew over fifteen years to include 187 non-fiction titles. "The program encompassed the principal branches of "useful knowledge:" history, voyages and travel, biography, natural history, physical sciences, agriculture, and the history of philosophy and religion. It was suggested that the intellectual value of any one book was enhanced by its being part of an approved system or circle of knowledge."

        THE RAMBLER IN NORTH AMERICA, MDCCCXXXII-MDCCCXXXIII

      R. B. Shelley and W. Burnside, London 1835 - 195 x 120 mm. (7 3/4 x 4 3/4"). With half titles. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Modern marbled boards backed with green buckram, smooth spines with gilt titling. Front pastedown with ink stamp of Roetzel Jochens; title page with ink signature of Harry Filettie. Howes L-127; Sabin 39222; Clark Old South III, 62; Streeter sale 1797; Wagner-Camp 57. One signature loose in volume I (nothing missing), Volume II with a small repair to one leaf, affecting a couple of words in the table of contents, isolated small marginal stains or smudges, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh in unworn bindings. This series of engaging letters recounts the adventures of English traveller Charles Latrobe (1801-75) and his Swiss pupil Count Albert de Pourtalès as they travel from Paris to the New World, and explore the young United States. After visiting New York and New England, Latrobe headed to the untamed West, joining Washington Irving on his tour of the prairie states and producing what Wagner-Camp deems "A much fuller and more entertaining account of this trip . . . than Irving's." Sabin notes that "a large part of the work is occupied with observations of Indian life. It contains many satirical yet good-humored pictures of public life and social usages." Following their western journey, Latrobe and Pourtalès headed to the South, touring plantations and sea islands before making their way to New Orleans to accompany Irving on his expedition to Mexico. Latrobe's travelogue provides an interesting glimpse of the America and Americans of the early 19th century from the viewpoint of a sophisticated European who observed the eye of a world traveller rather than that of an immigrant. Latrobe's rambles eventually led him to Australia, where he had a distinguished career as a colonial administrator.

        EVENTYR, FORTALTE FOR BØRN [FAIRY TALES TOLD FOR CHILDREN]

      Copenhagen C.A.Reitzel -1837 1835 - First edition in book form, bound from the three parts,as issued with introduction by the author. 78x120mm. Contemporary half speckled calf over marbled boards. A very good copy which is worn to the outer corners and edges of the boards, but entirely unrepaired and retaining bright gilt to the spine. Internally, marking or browning to some pages, but overall a handsome and well preserved copy. Housed in a later red, half morocco, clamshell box. The first edition of Andersen's first collection of fairy tales, which includes the first appearance of some of his most famous stories, namely 'The Princess and the Pea', 'Thumbelina', 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Tinder Box' and 'The Emperor's New Clothes'. Prior to writing fairy tales, Andersen had written a couple of volumes of poetry and a novel all of which had met with quiet approval from the critics. His 1830 volume of poems contained a story called, 'The Ghost, a Fairy Tale from Funen'. With the story he wrote, "As a child it was my greatest joy to listen to fairy tales. it is my intention, provided it meets with approval, to retell several, and some day publish a cycle of Danish folk tales." It would seem that the idea engendered no immediate enthusiasm from publishers, but some five years later, on New Year's Day 1835, Andersen wrote to his friend, Henriette Hanck, saying, "I am now starting several "Children's Tales," and you must know that I shall try to conquer future generations.". So it was in May of that year that a small pamphlet, containing the first four tales, appeared in print. Two further pamphlets followed in December 1835 and April 1837 and these three were bound into a single volume with a new title page, table of contents and introduction, in which Andersen remarks with almost comic prescience, "With this third pamphlet the Fairy Tales are now gathered in one little volume. It will depend on the impression it makes on the public if this is to be the only one. A poet is always a poor man in his own little country. Fame is therefore the golden bird he has to catch! Time will tell of I catch it by telling Fairy Tales." The pamphlets received quietly encouraging reviews, but were regarded by critics as mere bagatelles written between more serious endeavours. However, with the publication in book form and the subsequent translation into German, news of these new fairy stories spread. By 1842 Andersen had completed three more pamphlets and his first set was being reprinted. In 1846 the book was translated into English (in four separate translations) and by 1847 Andersen made a very successful tour of England, during which he was feted by society and famously met Charles Dickens with whom he kept an acquaintance over the following ten years. Andersen had achieved the fame he craved and went on to write 162 fairy tales in total, although it is still for the ones in this initial volume that he best known. "Since the first appearance of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales in London and New York in 1846, over seven hundred different editions, included dozens of varied translations, illustrated by more than a hundred different artists, have been published in the United States and England alone." - Jean Hersholt (Catalog of the Jean Hersholt Collection of Hans Christian Andersen). "The Tales of Hans Andersen are unique. Unlike Perrault's or Grimm's his stories were original inventions. he brought his own childlike imagination and a creative faculty and originality strangely lacking in his other writings. Over and above their intrinsic merit Andersen's stories signalised a new and fundamentally different approach to the writing of books for children. Mawkishness, didacticism, and moral proselytising were totally abjured and he was the harbinger of a new era in this genre" - PMM The first issue is also of exceptional scarcity, ".in the process of rebinding, a pamphlet of the second printing was in many cases substituted for one of the first printing, and so it was that a complete copy [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [LA PEROUSE] For the Benefit of Mrs. Waylett... the Serio Pantomime, entitled La Perouse

      Pavilion Theatre. Mr. Denvil, Sole Lessee. [London], Fenchurch Street : Maurice & Co., Printers, [c 1835]. Playbill, single sheet (340 x 210 mm), advertising a performance at the Pavilion Theatre [Stepney]. Toned and with some staining and old tape marks, but intact and legible. The Pavilion Theatre in Whitechapel Road, Stepney, east London, opened in November 1828, which gives a terminus post quem for the dating of this playbill. There are reviews of Henry Denvil's productions at the Pavilion dating from 1835 to 1842. The performance was a benefit for the actress Harriet Waylett (1798-1851). This playbill - of which we can find no other recorded copy - represents a very late example for a performance of this stage work originally written by John Fawcett. Productions of the 'pantomime' are recorded from 1801 onwards. An earlier play about La Perouse by the German playwright Kotzebue had been published in 1798, in which La Perouse is depicted as the only survivor of his shipwreck, living with an empathetic native woman on a deserted island until Madame La Perouse and his son discover him. The native woman and Madame La Perouse end up co-habiting on the island, with La Perouse becoming something of a brother to them. Although this story clearly inspired Fawcett, his version of the tragedy had a different conclusion which was designed to suit English public taste: the native woman turns out to be evil, and with the help of newly-arrived natives she plots the destruction of La Perouse, his wife and son - until foiled by a clever chimpanzee and crew of the Astrolabe, who massacre the natives and return to France with the La Perouse family.

        A set of books from the library of Admiral Isaac Manley, the last surviving crew member on Captain Cook's Endeavour voyage

      Paris and the Parisians, in 1835. London : Richard Bentley, 1836. Two volumes, octavo, publisher's cloth (spines defective), pp. xv; 418; vii; 412; Manley's armorial bookplate to front pastedown of volume 1 (bearing the family motto Manus hæc inimica tyrannis - This hand is hostile to tyrants), each volume signed on the title page 'Admiral Manley'. Born in London in 1755, Isaac George Manley joined James Cook aboard the Endeavour on 17 June 1768, aged thirteen. Manley served as servant to Robert Molineaux, Master of the Ship, and was promoted to midshipman by Captain Cook on 5 February, 1771, during the return voyage from New Holland. Manley rejoined Cook as a midshipman aboard the Resolution on his second circumnavigation, but he was discharged on 8 April 1772 before it sailed, and served instead on another ship. It is unclear what the circumstances were for his departure. Manley went on to serve a distinguished career in the Royal Navy and was promoted to Admiral in 1830 and Admiral of the Red in 1837, the highest naval rank. He died on 14 October 1837, aged 82, the last surviving crew member of the historic Endeavour voyage. Given the publication date of this set, Manley must have inscribed his name while aged in his eighties and holding the highest office. Manley's experiences as a youth aboard the Endeavour voyage from 1768 - 1771 was the subject of a historical novel by Anthony Hill titled Captain Cook's Apprentice, published in 2008; as well as a fictional work for young adults, The Goat Who Sailed The World, by Jackie French in 2006. A rare relic from a distinguished naval officer and crew member aboard Captain Cook's legendary voyage of the Endeavour.

        A Collection of 22 largely Hand-Written Documents, Dated Between May 1st 1857 and 22nd March 1880, Dealing Mostly with the Military Career of Madden.

      - Madden served with the British Auxiliary Legion in Spain from 1835 to August 1837, enlisted in the 24th Regiment of Foot on August 18, 1837 and served with it in Canada from 1838 to 1841. After returning to England with the rank of Sergeant he served until November 4 1845, when he purchased his discharge. Madden re-enlisted on February 17, 1846, as a Private in the 4th Regiment of Foot, but transferred to his old regiment, the 24th Foot on April 1 1846. He sailed for India in May and served there until 1856, having taken part in the Battles of Sadoolapore, Chillianwallah and Goojerat. Madden was promoted to Corporal (November 4) 1846, Sergeant (February 5, 1848), Quartermaster-Sergeant (October 4, 1848), Quartermaster (October 12, 1849) and commissioned as Ensign and Adjutant (December 12, 1851). Promoted to Lieutenant in October 1854, Madden resigned his Adjutancy in October 1855 and later returned to England because of failing health. He joined the Depot at Chatham in August 1857, obtained his Musketry Instructor's qualification at Hythe on April 12, 1858 and joined the 19th Regiment of Foot, as a Captain, on July 2, 1858. Madden retired from the army on July 8, 1859. On October 28 of that year he wrote to Horse Guards saying that he was considering going to New Zealand as a settler. After a request from Horse Guards to state which province he preferred, Madden chose Auckland and on November 8 he received a letter of introduction to Colonel Gore Brown, then Governor of New Zealand. By 1880 he was again living in England at Lytchett Matravers, Dorset. On March 22nd of that year he gave six months written notice to his landlord that he would be vacating his cottage, garden, stabling, grass field etc. on or before September 29th, 1880. A written copy of this letter is th final item in this Madden collection.

        Malerische Reise in Brasilien

      1835 - One of the most visually striking works on Brazil of the 19th century, illustrated by the famous artist Maurits Rugendas. 1835. Paris & Mulhausen. Engelmann & Cie. Four parts in one volume, folio (520 x 360 mm). 1 ff., 50; 38; 56; 32 ff., and 100 lithographed plates. Contemporary &#150;possibly original- half calf over boards, raised band and gilt tooling to spine, lettered in gilt, inner-hinges strengthened, a little rubbed as usual considering the size and weight. A very fine copy, clean, and overall free of the usual foxing to the plates. 24,000 $ First edition, with the text in German &#150;simultaneously published to the French edition-, a brilliant copy of this masterpiece of Brazilian 19th century scenery and costumes. Rugendas´ plate-book occupies a distinguished position in Brazil´s already rich iconography; it is accurate, comprehensive, and strikingly beautiful. The 100-hundred plates show the aboriginal costumes, city views, architecture, landscapes, and urban scenery; in the latter we can appreciate a fascinating visual record of Brazil´s important slave history, with 20 plates illustrating the subject. The country´s celebrated landscapes are also well represented, with some 30 plates recording cities like and Bahia Rio de Janeiro. All the plates are after German artist Maurits Rugendas (1802 &#150; 1858), famous for his landscapes and ethnographic subject of the Americas (mostly Brazil, Chile, and Argentina); Rugendas was influenced by earlier artistic works produced after explorations of the American, namely those of Johann Baptist von Spix and Carl von Martius. In the early 1820´s Rugendas travelled to Brazil, soon hired by Baron von Langsdorff in the capacity of illustrator for the scientific expedition to Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo, which allowed him a first glance of the country´s scenery, his employment however would soon come to an end, when he is replaced by Adrien Taunay; still, the author remained in the country on his own until 1825, travelling through Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco, Mato Grosso, and other regions, recording his impression mostly in drawings and watercolors. His skill as draughtsman left us with a wonderful book in two respects, first, because of it´s beauty, which the reader can enjoy and be transported into a day and time which no longer exists, second, the importance as an iconographic record of Brazil´s life in the first quarter of the 19th century, defined as of "genuine documentary value, which are of utmost importance for the study of Brazilian life at the beginning of the 19th century" (Borba de Moraes, at the same time criticizing somewhat the text); Pedro Correa de Lago compares it to Debret &#147;Inferior apenas em termos de fama ao de Debret, o album de Rugendas, de concepcao diversa, e mais rico em vistas e menos atriado pela reconstituicao de cenas urbanas. Mas ambos sao extremamente valiosos na observacao precisa da realidade brasileira&#148; (Pedro Correa do Lago, Brasiliana Itau, pp. 192.). Sabin 73934. Borba de Moraes, 754. Bosch 377.

Reliure en demi cuir rouge de Russie à coins, dos à quatre nerfs orné de filets et de doubles caissons dorés, date en queue dans un cartouche, contreplats et gardes de papier à la cuve, rares couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée sur témoins, reliure signée de Bernasconi. Le feuillet de nomenclature des œuvres de Victor Hugo est bien présent. Quelques traces de pliure sur certains feuillets. Un précieux poème autographe de Victor Hugo intitulé « La pauvre fleur disait au papillon céleste », sur deux feuillets repliés, a été monté sur onglet en regard de la version définitive adoptée par l'auteur et imprimée page 223 du recueil. Il s'agit d'une première version, composée de quatre quatrains. Ces vers seront repris avec quelques variantes par Hugo dans la version définitive, augmentée toutefois de quatre nouveaux quatrains. Ce poème a été composé par Hugo pour sa maîtresse Juliette Drouet, rencontrée deux ans auparavant. Il symbolise la nature de leur relation - le poète pris dans sa vie conjugale et littéraire, la jeune femme condamnée à l'attendre -, et aura une grande importance dans leur imaginaire commun : Juliette Drouet citera fréquemment le vers « Et moi je reste seule à voir tourner mon ombre / À mes pieds ! » dans ses lettres d'amour à Victor Hugo. On retrouve également le double motif de la fleur et du papillon aux côtés de leurs initiales entrelacées, dans le décor peint du salon chinois provenant de Hauteville Fairy, résidence de Juliette Drouet à Guernesey, décor conçu par l'écrivain lui-même et aujourd'hui conservé à la Maison Victor Hugo à Paris. Bel exemplaire non rogné, établi dans une charmante reliure signée, enrichi d'un très rare poème autographe de Victor Hugo écrit pour Juliette Drouet.
