      Boston: Garrison and Knapp, 1836. Folio. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, leather labels. A few leaves with tears, with occasional loss to text (including the bottom half of the first leaf in Vol. VI), mild marginal worming in some leaves, some uneven tanning and foxing, minor dampstaining. Includes EXTRA edition of Jan., 1836. Lacking Vol. II, No. 1; Vol. III, No. 48; and Vol. V, No. 1, else complete. Overall very good. An exceptional early run of William Lloyd Garrison's anti- slavery newspaper, THE LIBERATOR. With 205 individual weekly issues in four volumes (bound in three), plus a four-page special Extra edition from January 1836, this constitutes a virtually complete run of the second, third, fifth, and sixth years of this legendary publication. Published by William Lloyd Garrison and Isaac Knapp, and edited by Garrison, THE LIBERATOR stands alone as the dominant printed historical source for those who sought the abolition of slavery in America. Issued weekly from 1831 to 1865, THE LIBERATOR provided an important forum for news and commentary relating to slavery and the slave trade, and the attempts to end them. Articles include rants on the historical woes of slavery, the evils of African colonization, letters and reports about the hardships and brutalities of slave life, letters to the editor in support of abolition, publication notices for books related to slavery, and much, much more. Each issue includes a wood-engraved masthead of a slave auction, with the various sections of each issue headed with an engraving of slaves in bondage, at auction, or enduring corporal punishment. A regular column titled "Ladies Department" focuses on the issue of the life of female slaves, and the column titled "Juvenile Department" relates news, stories, and poems (including a poem in the Nov. 10, 1832 issue called "The Little Negro Boy") related to the experiences of young slaves. Garrison himself was the voice of his generation on the issue of abolition, the founder of the New England Anti- Slavery Society, and a tireless global advocate for the abolition of African slavery. Garrison and his fellow anti-slavery supporters were uncompromising in their hatred of the institution of slavery, which they felt was a moral outrage. THE LIBERATOR was their forum. They used their weekly newspaper to speak out against the peculiar institution. A piece in the first issue here sums up the position of Garrison and his collaborators with regard to slavery: "The history of the African Slave Trade is a melancholy tale of human woe. The long series of years during which this bloody traffic has existed, has borne on its pinions to eternity reports of human wretchedness, which must excite the blush of shame on angel cheeks. This period in the history of man will be referred to, in after ages, not as the dark, but rather as the bloody age. It has branded the otherwise fair reputation of our nation with a stigma, which all the benevolent deeds we may hereafter perform to injured Africa can never erase.... For a nation professing to be the votaries of liberty and equal rights, whose ancestors sacrificed their lives at the shrine of freedom, and by their bravery achieved their national independence...for such a nation to hold in servile oppression and galling servitude two millions of human beings , invested by God with the inalienable rights of freedom, merely because their color is different from their own, is an act stamped with infinite turpitude...." Garrison's crusade against slavery helped to bring an end to the institution in America. He lived long enough to see the country torn apart by a civil war due largely because of the issue of slavery. He also witnessed the Emancipation Proclamation and the Thirteenth Amendment, both of which must have filled Garrison and his colleagues with a sense of accomplishment for a life and career well-spent in the pursuit of the destruction of the peculiar institution. The present collection of THE LIBERATOR is perhaps the largest offering ever to come to the retail market, with almost every issue over a four-year period during the early years of the newspaper's publication. THE LIBERATOR is exceedingly rare in the current market, due in large part to the fact that its original circulation only included around 3,000 subscribers, three-quarters of which were freed slaves. A unique opportunity to acquire a large portion of William Lloyd Garrison's influential abolitionist periodical, which he promised from the beginning would be "as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice."

        Du Système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France ; suivi d'un appendice sur les colonies pénales et de notes statistiques.

      H. Fournier jeune, Paris 1836 - 2 vol. in-8 de (4)-94 pp. ; (4)-374 pp., 5 gravures dont 1 plan hors-texte, demi-veau vert, doslisse orné (reliure de l'époque). Deuxième édition refondue et augmentée d'une intoduction, de l'ouvrage majeur sur les prisons au XIXe siècle. Partis en 1831 afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain, Beaumont et Tocqueville publient dès leur retour cet ouvrage. Après sa parution, Beaumont fut relevé de ses fonctions de substitut ; Tocqueville fut solidaire et démissionna de son poste de juge suppléant. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera : « le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes » (Lettre à R.-A. Mignet). Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage qui reçut le prix Montyon, décerné par l'Académie française. Bel exemplaire malgré des rousseurs.

        De l'Unité, ou Aperçus philosophiques sur l'identité des principes de la science mathématique, de la grammaire générale et de la religion chrétienne, par un ancien élève de l'Ecole polytechnique.

      Debécourt 1836-1839, Paris - 3 vol. in-8 de (4)-424 pp. ; (4)-378-(2) pp. ; (4)-611 pp. 3 planches repliées, demi-basane bleue, dos orné à nerfs (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. « Ouvrage rare et peu connu (dont) l'auteur est un disciple de Fabre d'Olivet » (Stanislas de Guaita). Polytechnicien natif de Billère près de Pau, le Colonel-Directeur Etchegoyen (1786-1843) était en charge du dépôt de l'artillerie de La Rochelle quand il publia son traité d'arithmosophie en 1836, synthèse magistrale basée sur les mathématiques, le principe de triple égalité dans la physique céleste et terrestre, l'application de la loi universelle, de la création d'après l'immatérialité de Dieu et de l''âme et l'identité de la langue universelle des nombres et de la grammaire générale etc. « La théorie de l'harmonie des idées amène certains auteurs à établir des rapprochements - souvent inattendus - entre certaines activités de l'esprit humain et les vérités de la religion. C'est là une pensée fort complexe, et il vaut mieux en citer un échantillon que tenter de la résumer : Car il est écrit que Jésus de Nazareth fut crucifié la troisième heure du jour ; que la sixième heure venue, les ténèbres se répandaient sur toute l aterre et qu'à la neuvième heure, Jésus jetant un grand cri expira. Or les nombres 3, 6 et 9 manifestent respectivement dans les idées infinies, la puissance du Père, la puissance du Fils et la puissance du Saint-Esprit, ou de la Trinité indivisible? il s'ensuit qu'ici dans le supplice de Jésus de Nazareth, l'action de la Trinité indivisible s'est manifestée par le nombre dans toute sa plénitude? On pourrait penser que le problème est dans ce cas simplifié par la présence de chiffres dans le texte mais leur absence ne représenterait aucun obstacle pour Etchegoyen. Selon lui, il n'y a rien dans l'univers, à commencer de Dieu, où le nombre ne se trouve dans la répétition dans les verbes adjectifs. » (Frank Paul Bowman, Le Christ romantique, 1973, p. 207). 3 planches repliées en fin du tome III. Un quatrième et dernier tome a paru en 1842. Des rousseurs mais bon exemplaire. Caillet, II, 33 ; Bibliothèque Guaita, 286. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Montpelier, Va, 1836. Old folds. Early repair to a closed tear beside Madison's name on address leaf. Some staining. Remnant of wax seal. About very good. In a half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. A brief letter, uniting a past president of the United States with a future one, and one Secretary of State with another. Most interestingly, the letter contains a remark from Madison regarding current United States relations with France, and American attempts to secure reparations from France for depredations against American shipping dating back to the period when Madison was Secretary of State. James Madison (1751-1836) was the fourth president of the United States, and the nation's fifth Secretary of State, serving in that position from 1801 to 1809. Martin Van Buren (1782-1862) was vice president of the United States when he received this letter from Madison. He was the nation's tenth Secretary of State (1829-31) and was elected president in 1836, serving a full four-year term in office. The text of the letter is completely in James Madison's hand, and he has also signed his name on the address leaf, beside his "free" frank stamp. The letter is addressed in Dolley Madison's hand, "The Vice President of the U. States. Washington," and Martin Van Buren has docketed the letter himself. The text of the letter reads: "J. Madison, with his best respects to Mr. Van Buren, thanks him for the copy of the President's late special message and the documents accompanying it. He wishes he could have found in the posture of the controversy with France less of a remaining cloud over the desired issue to it. Montpellier [sic] January 22, 1836." Though not explicitly stated, it was certainly a copy of Andrew Jackson's recent State of the Union Address, delivered on Dec. 7, 1835, that Van Buren sent Madison. Jackson spent most of the foreign policy portion of his address discussing United States relations with France - specifically the outstanding issue of twenty-five million francs in reparations from France for depredations against American shipping during the so-called Quasi War of the late 1790s, and into the administration of Thomas Jefferson, in which James Madison was Secretary of State. An 1831 treaty between the United States and France should have settled the matter to the satisfaction of the United States, but the French delayed making payment for several years, and Jackson used his message to criticize them for it. It is unclear whether Madison's cryptic remark to Van Buren on the issue, "he wishes he could have found in the posture of the controversy with France less of a remaining cloud over the desire issue to it," was meant as a criticism of France for not proceeding with the reparations in a timely fashion, or as a jab at the Jackson administration's handling of the matter. Madison died a few months later.

      Oahu: Mei Pai Palapala a na Misionari, 1836. 12mo. Contemporary calf, spine tooled in gilt, leather label. Hinges lightly rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Near fine. The second edition, with a printing of only 3,000 copies. The title translates as: "The inquiry, questions illustrating the meaning of the Holy Scriptures. A good thing for Sunday Schools. Book I. About the story of Jesus and his miracles." This copy is from the library of James F. Hunnewell (1832-1910), with his bookplate. Hunnewell was a Boston book collector and bibliographer. He published BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS in 1869. His father, James Hunnewell, became familiar with the islands when the ship he was on was sold to Hawaiian chiefs. The senior Hunnewell was responsible for collecting the payment in sandalwood and then selling it in China. As a result, he spent several months in the islands and became friendly with the local populace. In 1820 he arrived in Honolulu as second mate on the brig Thaddeus, the ship bearing the first American missionaries as well as the first printing press there. He later developed a significant business in Hawaii which grew into the commercial house later known as C. Brewer & Company. Though he returned to Charlestown, Massachusetts, he spent the rest of his life actively engaged in exporting goods to Hawaii and California. Part of his considerable fortune was given to found Oahu College. FORBES 1019. JUDD 141. DAB IX, p.381.

        The Despatches, Minutes, and Correspondence of the Marquess Wellesley, during his Administration of India

      London: John Murray, , 1836-7. 5 volumes, octavo (217 × 135 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, title gilt direct to spines, raised bands with dotted roll gilt, edges sprinkled red, dun endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece with facsimile signature to volume I, 2 folding maps and one similar battle-plans, one coloured, one coloured in outline, and one with the dispositions in colour. Just a little rubbed, some off-setting from the plates and bookplates, mild foxing front-back and fore-edge, light browning else, a very good set. First editions. "The most brilliant part of Wellesley's career was unquestionably his government of India. He must be regarded as one of the three men who consolidated the empire of which Clive laid the foundation. In many respects he resembled Dalhousie more than Hastings; but the difficulties which he was called upon to encounter were greater than those which confronted Dalhousie Â… As a member of a constitutional government such as that of Great Britain he was somewhat out of place owing to his autocratic habits and the contempt which he felt, and did not attempt to conceal, for the failings of his less able colleagues. Mackintosh called him 'a sultanized Englishman'" (DNB). A very handsome set indeed of this important collection of Wellesley's papers. An excellent set in a solid and soberly handsome binding with the bookplates of Sir Edward Cholmeley Dering, (1807-1896), Kent landowner, and MP variously for Wexford, New Romney and Kent East, 1830-68.

        Experimental Researches in Electricity Twenty-Second Series: On the crystalline polarity of bismuth and other bodies, and on its relation to the magnetic form of force" AND "Experimental Researches in Electricity Twenty-Second Series: On the crystalline polarity of bismuth and other bodies, and on its relation to the magnetic form of force, Part II" The Bakerian Lecture in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, 139, 1849, pp. 1-18 and pp. 19-41

      FIRST EDITION OF TWO IMPORTANT PAPERS BY MICHAEL FARADAY, EACH PUBLISHED AS PART OF HIS LANDMARK TWENTY-NINE PAPER "EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCHES IN ELECTRICITY" SERIES. The papers discuss magneto-crystallic force and the abnormal behavior of various crystals in a magnetic field. Faraday "hoped that when 'properly understood' the various phenomena examined in terms of their magnecrystallic, crystallographic and optic axes would come under 'one law [that] will include all these phenomena'" (Kox, No Truth Except in the Details). Faraday was an English chemist and physicist often thought to be the best experimentalist in the history of science. During Faraday's earlier experiments on electro-magnetical theory he had "observed some phenomena that led him to a belief in the existence of another form of force, distinct from either paramagnetic or diamagnetic force, which he called the magne-crystallic force. He had been experimenting with some slender needles of bismuth, suspending them horizontally between the poles of an electro-magnet. Taking a few of these cylinders at random from a greater number, he was much perplexed to find that they did not all come to rest equatorially, as well-behaved bars of diamagnetic bismuth should do, though, if subjected to the action of a single magnetic pole, they did show this diamagnetic character by their marked repulsion. After much experimentation, he ascribed this phenomenon to the crystalline condition of the cylinder. By experimenting with carefully selected groups of crystals of bismuth, he believed he could trace the cause of the phenomenon to the action of a force which he called the magne-crystallic force" (Houston, "Electricity and Magnetism"). Faraday believed that in studying the different action of a magnetic field upon crystalline bodies (different according to the position of their axes of crystallization) he [was observing] the 'action' of a 'new' and 'specific force' (Faraday). Here he describes his research in an important letter to colleague Christian Schönbein: "I have been working also a little and have sent two papers to the Royal Society on the Crystalline Polarity of bismuth and other bodies and its relation to the Magnetic force. [My research] makes the crystal point as a magnetic needle would point, yet is the result not an effect of attraction or repulsion or polarity, for the bismuth is repelled, as a diamagnetic body, as much and no more than if it had not this set. If it be fused and then resolidified, all this power is lost, because it belonged to a regular crystallization and that has now become irregular. Antimony and Arsenic are also magnecrystallic, like bismuth - and crystalline plates of these metals taken from broken up masses point well, provided the whole of the fragment be uniformly crystallized. Not only are diamagnetic bodies, like those mentioned, but also Magnetic bodies, Magnecrystallic. Thus a crystal of protosulphate of iron is so, having the Magnecrystallic axis perpendicular to two of the faces of the rhombic prism, in which that salt crystallizes. I can by arrangement oppose the Magnecrystallic force either to the magnetic or the diamagnetic condition of bodies - so that I can make a crystal of Sulphate of iron recced from a magnetic pole, or a crystal of bismuth approach towards it, against what we should otherwise consider their natural tendency. As I said just now this effect is not one of attraction or of repulsion but of position only, and is as far as I can see a new effect or an exertion of force new to us" (The Letters of Faraday and Schoenbein 1836-1862, 182).

        Payta Kootha A Shawanee Warrior

      Philadephia: E. C. Biddle, 1836. Hand-coloured lithograph after Charles Bird King, printed by Lehman & Duval. 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. Payta Kootha, Flying Clouds, was a Shawnee chief. He signed several treaties including the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. His last treaty was signed in 1825 by which the Shawnee surrendered all claim to land east of the Mississippi. An early impression printed by Lehman & Duval and published by Edward Biddle. 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 Black Hawk. 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 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 making a record of a rapidly disappearing culture.

        Cheret, Jules - Quinquina Dubonnet.

      DE BELLE EPOQUE NODIGT UIT VOOR EEN APERATIEFReclame Affiche '" "Quinquina Dubonnet"', lithografie ontworpen door Jules Chéret (1836-1932), gedrukt door Chaix te Parijs in 1896. Afmetingen: 125 x 89 cm. Chéret was de eerste die kleurenaffiches maakte, levendige ontwerpen voor cabaret, variété en theater zoals Olympia, Folies Bergères en Moulin Rouge. Later breidde hij zijn werk uit naar het maken van advertenties voor allerlei producten. Hij wordt gezien als de vader van de moderne lithografie en vader van de reclame affiche. Chéret maakte verschillende ontwerpen voor Quinquina Dubonnet, alle met een mooie jonge vrouw en een witte kat. Deze kat is een compliment aan mevrouw Dubonnet, wiens eigen kat in het bedrijfslogo was verwerkt. Hier zien we de jonge vrouw met het glas in haar hand, uitnodigen voor een aperitief. Met aandacht voor beeld in plaats van tekst, bracht Chéret een revolutie teweeg in de manier waarop posters werden vorm-gegeven. Hij meende dat een affiche niet noodzakelijkerwijs een product moest tonen, het was slechts van belang dat het bij de kijker een positieve reactie genereerde. Met zijn grote affiches met afbeeldingen van vrijdenkende dames, zette hij aan tot de emancipatie van de vrouw. Vrouwen werden vóór Chéret meestal afgebeeld als prostituee, of als puritein. Zijn zgn. "Chrérettes"' waren geen van beide. Het werkte merkbaar bevrijdend voor de vrouwen van Parijs, die nu decolletés mochten dragen en konden roken in het openbaar. Vandaag de dag behoort Chéret tot de meest verzamelde kunstenaars uit de Belle Epoque. Prijs: € 2.450,- (incl. lijst, excl. BTW/VAT).

        Trauerszene am Kreuz nach der Kreuzabnahme Jesu. "Gemalt von Wm. Schadow." " Gestochen von Hoffmann."

      Düsseldorf Kupferdruckerrei d Königl Kunst-Academie Düsseldorf von C Schulgen-Bettendorff () 1836 - Einblattdruck auf feinem Papier, sauberer klarer Abdruck, Papier sauber, Blattmaße: 29 x 44,5 cm. Das Gemälde zum Kupferstich fertigte Schadow (1788 Berlin - 1862 Düsseldorf) noch vor seiner dritten Romreise 1839/40 an (Schadow konvertierte 1814 vom evangelischen zum katholischen Glauben). Ende 1825 schloss Schadow sein großes Atelier in Berlin, da man ihn Anfang 1826 zum Direktor der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie als Nachfolger von Peter von Cornelius gemacht hatte. 1827 folgten ihm einige seiner begabtesten Schüler, darunter Eduard Bendemann, Theodor Hildebrandt, Julius Hübner, Carl Friedrich Lessing Carl Ferdinand Sohn. Daraus entstand nach kurzer Zeit die Düsseldorfer Malerschule. In seiner Eigenschaft als Direktor der Akademie war Schadow maßgeblich an der Verbesserung des Kunststudium sowie der dazugehörigen praktischen Ausbildung beteiligt. 1829 wirkte er an der Gründung des Düsseldorfer Kunstvereins mit. In den ersten Jahren nach 1810, 1830 und 1831 und später nochmals 1839 bis 1840 hielt sich Schadow in Rom auf. Von diesen Reisen brachte er viele Skizzen und Ideen mit, welche dann im Atelier die Grundlage seines künstlerischen Schaffens wurden. Der vorliegende Kupferstich nach einem Gemälde von Schadow wurde "Den Mitgliedern des Kunstvereins für die Rheinlande und Westphalen für die Jahre 1837 und 1838" überreicht. "Das Original ist von dem Kunstvereine auf den Hauptaltar der Pfarrkirche zu Dülmen gestiftet". (Text im unteren Blattbereich). Der Kupferstich trägt den Bibelvers: "Denn also hat Gott die Welt geliebt dass Er seinen eingeborenen Sohn hingab damit alle die an Ihn glauben nicht verloren gehen, sondern das ewige Leben haben. Joh 3,16".

Partis ensemble aux Etats-Unis en 1831 afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain, et surtout le système politique, Beaumont et Tocqueville publient en janvier 1833 leur livre "Du système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France". Après la parution de l'ouvrage, Beaumont est relevé de ses fonctions de substitut; Tocqueville se solidarise avec lui et démissionne de son poste de juge suppléant. Peu après, Toqueville rédigera De la démocratie en Amérique, paru en 1835, et qui deviendra un immense succès populaire. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera dans une lettre que "le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes" (Lettre à R-A. Mignet). Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage qui reçoit le prix Montyon, décerné par l'Académie française aux ouvrages les plus utiles aux moeurs.

      [Most likely Philadelphia, but possibly London, 1836. Six small closed tears along left edge, all of them one- half inch or less, far from the image and below the mat line. A fresh, clear, dark impression. Near fine. Matted. An impressive and handsome lithographic print, forcefully illustrating the differences between the strong, wealthy, and secure United States and the corrupt, bankrupt, and fearful French monarchy in the 1830s. The image shows President Andrew Jackson and a group of six Americans standing on the left, facing King Louis Philippe, and six Frenchmen standing on the right, the two parties separated by a narrow strip of water symbolizing the Atlantic Ocean. Jackson holds in his hand the treaty of July 4, 1831, made between the United States and France to settle the issue of outstanding debts (in the amount of some twenty-five million francs) caused by French depredations during the Napoleonic Wars. The French were to pay over a number of years, but soon pled poverty and balked on their payments. This is symbolized in the illustration by an overturned treasure chest on the French side, with no money in it, but with unpaid bills spilling out, including those for the army and the civil list. Louis Philippe holds in his hand a slip of paper reading: "fortunate speculation 25 millions." By contrast, the chest on the American side is filled with bags of money, showing the great government surpluses available at the time. The American treasure chest has an image of the U.S. Capitol on its lid and is surrounded by books, including a biography of Washington and another listing great American military victories. The Americans are shown as confident and prosperous, and include a young sailor waving his cap, and a plainly dressed citizen holding a rifle and bayonet. The Frenchmen, by contrast, look fearful and apprehensive, and one of them is a sailor being impressed into service. Three French ships are seen in the background, facing off against three American ships, including the Constitution ("Old Ironsides") and the New Orleans. This evokes the determination of Jackson to settle the issue by force if necessary, and the fact that naval conflict over the French non-payment was a very real possibility. The caption notes that in "monarchical governments" resources must be "wrung from the people's hands," whereas in a republic citizens willingly sacrifice their blood and fortune for their country. The lack of an imprint has led some to put forth London as the place of production for this print. A delightful lithograph, evocatively demonstrating growing American power and prosperity during the "Era of Good Feelings," especially in contrast with a decrepit, monarchical Europe.

      Philadelphia: Published by J.O. Lewis, 1836. Folio. Contemporary calf "bound by R. Allen. Late S. Bennett...Mercury Office, Nottingham" (see binder's label on front pastedown), covers paneled in gilt, titled in gilt on upper cover "Aboriginal / Port-Folio"; expertly rebacked to style, spine gilt, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Very good. One of the rarest 19th-century American color plate books and the first major American color plate book on American Indians. 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, appearing monthly between May 1835 and January 1836. The reason for this haste was 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 sixty-four plates), but very few with nine parts (seventy-two 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 titlepage). The binding of the present set can be dated to between 1836 and 1847: in 1836 Samuel Bennett died and Richard Allen took over as proprietor of the Nottingham Mercury. In 1847 the proprietorship passed to Thomas Bailey. 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.

      Philadelphia: J. Dobson, 1836. 19th-century three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Binding slightly edgeworn and darkened. Small ownership stamp on titlepage and an occasional very light fox mark, else internally very clean. Very good. A mostly complete copy of this extremely rare and attractive color plate book on fresh water bivalves. Timothy Abbott Conrad was an early and important American naturalist whose reputation is now mostly lost to history. His work is an important complement to Thomas Say's AMERICAN CONCHOLOGY, and Conrad assisted Say's widow in completing the final part of that work, which was unfinished at the time of Thomas Say's death. The very lovely plates in this work, done after Conrad's own drawings, were lithographed by P.S. Duval, one of the leading illustrators of Philadelphia, and are quite handsomely drawn and shaded. Most every plate contains several colored illustrations of shells. Conrad's text gives the scientific details of the shells, as well as his personal observations and comparisons with Say's findings. This work was originally issued in thirteen parts between 1836 and 1840, but is most often found in single- volume form. Each part contains five plates. The present copy, then, contains twelve of the thirteen parts, lacking only the final five plates and accompanying text. "A book of both scientific and artistic merit" - Bennett. Extremely rare on the market, the first copy we have ever seen offered for sale.
