        Autograph Letter Signed

      1836 - Signed. WORDSWORTH, William.Autograph Letter Signed.Rydal Mount: October 8, [1836].Fine autograph letter signed by Wordsworth to English composer Thomas Attwood discussing the setting of some of Wordsworth's verses to music, in which the poet grants his permission, but forbids the correspondent from making alterations to the verses "for the sake of accommodating them to music." Finely framed with a portrait of the poet, a very handsome piece.The letter is addressed to Mozart's pupil, Thomas Attwood, with the integral address leaf attached. It reads, in part: "In answer to your request, I have to say that you are quite at liberty to accompany any part of my verses with your music; I must request however that if you fix upon parts of Poems only you would be so kind as to take the trouble of mentioning it to the Public, and I must entreat that no alterations be made in the words for the sake of accommodating them to music " Thomas Attwood occupied an important position in the English musical world. A prolific composer of operas, he also wrote church music, piano sonatas, and songs. As a young man, Attwood studied in Italy, and also in Vienna, under Mozart, who spoke favorably of his talent in 1785. After returning to England in 1787, he became music tutor to the Duchess of York and the Princess of Wales. In 1813 he was founder of the London Philharmonic Society. When the young Mendelssohn came to London, Attwood befriended him and gave him enthusiastic support.Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Fort Gibson, [Indian Territory]. August 15, 1835; July 4, 1836. - 3pp., each letter with its integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Near fine. Two manuscript letters from fur trader William P. Tillton to friend and business associate William Hempstead, a prominent St. Louis merchant. Tillton (also spelled Tilton) was head of the Columbia Fur Company, founded in 1822, which was bought out by the American Fur Company in 1827. Little else is known about him. Fort Gibson, on the Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma, was established in 1824 and was a vital military outpost on the western frontier for the next seventy years. The Fort was the terminus point for the Trail of Tears, and was vital to the resettlement of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory and relations between the tribes and the U.S. government. In the first letter, dated Aug. 15, 1835, Tillton laments a personal loss, writing that he must be the most "unlucky, miserable poor devil in the world; it appears I am a doomed man . The only favor God ever did me he has taken away from me again - I have lost the best, the kindest, the most affectionate and the most noble of womankind, a loss that can never be repaired. Hempstead you know nothing about it, you have not the most distant idea of such a loss and God grant you never may have." He moves on, however, to business matters, noting that he hopes to make a tidy profit from his time in the Territory: "I have always been doing a fair business here and doubt not at the end of the appointment to show a nett profit of at least $30,000 at this post; it [the appointment] expires in two years. .in my opinion I am always afraid things are done too loosely elsewhere than here, I wish I had this post to myself and I would soon be rich." In his second letter, dated July 4, 1836, Tillton forwards a check for $5,000, pulled from his share of the profits. He indicates that he prefer Hempstead not indicate the transaction in his ledger, as Tillton did not wish the use of the funds known: "I have drawn [the check] from the concern as part of my profits and advised March of the same, telling him I had use for it. I do not wish it placed to my credit on your books because I do not care he should know what I wanted of it. If it is worth bank interest to you for six months, use it; and if not, keep it until called for. Should I die in the mean time, advise my mother, Mary M. Tillton, Pittstown, Maine that you have that amount in your hands subject to her order." Two letters from the frontier, both with integral address leaves marked with postage at Ft. Gibson, extremely early letters from Oklahoma.

        The Aboriginal Port Folio or a collection of portraits of the most celebrated Chiefs of the North American Indians

      published by J.O. Lewis, Philadelphia 1836 - (17 5/8 x 11 1/4 inches). 3 letterpress advertisement leaves. 72 hand-coloured lithographic plates. Extra-illustrated with an original parts wrapper from part number 3. Contemporary calf "bound by R. Allen. Late S. Bennett . Mercury Office, Nottingham" (see label on front pastedown), covers panelled in gilt to a neo-classical design, titled in gilt on upper cover "Aboriginal / Port-Folio.", expertly rebacked to style, spine in eight compartments with raised bands, the bands tooled in gilt and flanked by tools in gilt and blind, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, marbled endpapers One of the rarest 19th-century American colour-plate books and the first major American colour-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, and appeared monthly between May 1835 and January 1836. The reason for this haste is probably that Lewis was aware that the imminent appearance of the first part of McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America would adversely affect his subscriber-numbers. The evidence of the surviving copies suggests that his fears were well-founded as there are a number of sets made up from eight parts (with 64 plates), but very few with nine parts (72 plates) and ten-part sets with the full complement of a frontispiece/title-leaf and eighty plates are virtually never found: only the Siebert copy is listed as having sold at auction in the past twenty-five years, and there are only about a half dozen or so other recorded sets (the Siebert set, and one other, are the only two examples to include the title page). 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.

        Canada Jay (Elephant folio Plate CVII) Gray Jay, Perisoreus canadensis on Quercus alba, White Oak

      London: Robert Havell. Very Good. 1836. First. Etching. Engraving with etching, aquatint and hand-coloring on J Whatman hand-made paper watermarked 1836. Unusaully wide, untrimmed margins showing the pulls from the binder's signatures on the left margin and the original gilt to the top edge. "I have found this species of Jay breeding in the State of Maine, where many individuals belonging to it reside the whole year, and where in fact so many as fifteen or twenty may be seen in the course of a day by a diligent person anxious to procure them. In the winter, their numbers are constantly augmented by those which repair to that country from places farther north. They advance to the southward as far as the upper parts of the State of New York.... Now, to my eye, the Canada Jay is as elegant in its movements, whether perched or on wing, as any other of our Jays, although its apparel is certainly very homely. It is joyous and lively at all times, even when, pushed by extreme hunger, it approaches the lonely camp of the traveller, with the hope of obtaining a share, however small, of his perhaps scanty fare.

"I closed my eyes, and was passing away into the world of dreaming existence, when suddenly there burst on my soul the serenade of the Rose-breasted bird, so rich, so mellow, so loud in the stillness of the night, that sleep fled from my eyelids. Never did I enjoy music more: it thrilled through my heart, and surrounded me with an atmosphere of bliss. One might easily have imagined that even the Owl, charmed by such delightful music, remained reverently silent. Long after the sounds ceased did I enjoy them, and when all had again become still, I stretched out my wearied limbs, and gave myself up to the luxury of repose."

Grande attenzione e' poi riservata allo sviluppo delle ferrovie e alla diffusione dell'illuminazione a gas nel Lombardo-Veneto, oltre che ai congressi annuali degli scienziati italiani. Fra i numerosi collaboratori si segnalano: Salvatore Anau, Gian Matteo Annichini, Carlo Cattaneo, il barone Giuseppe Corvaja, ecc.

        Narrative of a Journey to the Zoolu Country, in South Africa, Undertaken in 1835

      London: William Crofts, 1836. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo, pp. iv, 412. Complete as descrbed in Mendelssohn (I: 587-88) with 26 plates (two colored, one partially colored) and two maps with partial coloring in outline. Attractively bound in later three-quarter green morocco with marbled boards, gilt spine in three compartments (titles slightly off center), new endpapers. Text clean, some plates with mild to moderate foxing. Lower margin of smaller map is trimmed, with neatline gone, but all map content present. Abbey, Travel, #332. Gardiner (1794-1851) was a British naval officer with a passion for missionary work. He went to Africa in 1834, explored Zululand, and started the first missionary station at Port Natal, although "political events and native wars combined to prevent any permanent success" (DNB). This work describes his travels and extensive efforts (with much gift-giving) to persuade the native leaders to support his mission. Mendelssohn writes that "there is interesting description of the country, and it would appear that the military system and the deep-rooted belief in witchcraft prevailing among the inhabitants were great stumbling blocks to the conversion of the natives.

        Messa in C a quattro voci in piena Partitura . con l'agguinta della riduzione del piano forte del E. Picchi.

      Florence: Ferdinando Lorenzi between and 1856 1836 - entirely engraved, some foxing, Continental armorial ownership stamp to title-page, pp. [ii], 132, folio, contemporary quarter green sheep, marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt, a little rubbed and worn, gutter cracking in places but binding strong, good. A rare printing of Mozart's Coronation Mass in C major, K.317. Completed and first performed in 1779, it acquired the name 'Coronation Mass' only about a century later, though this is thought to be because it 'was probably sung at the coronoation of Leopold II in Prague in 1791, and it was certainly heard a year later for the coronation of Leopold's son Francis as King of Bohemia. Although it is called simply a Missa (rather than a Missa solemnis), it is one of Mozart's most brilliant works' (Cambridge Companion to Mozart, p. 122). It had been printed several times before this edition, which is likely an unauthorised Florentine piracy of one of the earlier German printings, although it does add a piano reduction below the main score, arranged by the Florentine composer, teacher, and musical critic Ermanno Picchi (1811-1856). We have been unable to trace any other printing of Picchi's arrangement and this may be its first edition. Worldcat locates copies of this edition in St Gallen, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Yale only (this last lacking its title-page).

      - London: Ackermann & Co., 1836-1837. Four volumes in one. 4to, later utilitarian tan buckram, gilt-lettered red morocco backstrip label, gilt edges Respectively: pictorial title-page with lettering colored by hand and 21 plates; pictorial title-page and 24 plates with captions printed in red; pictorial title-page and 27 plates, title and captions printed in red; and pictorial title-page and 26 plates (numbered 2-27); the total number of etched plates, including title-pages, is 102. All plates printed on rectos only and with tissue guards. Publisher's catalogue of J. Britton, dated 1837, and small broadside advertisement for another of Pugin's works bound in at rear. Early ownership inscription on flyleaf. backstrip label chipped; binding darkened and unsightly; a few stains and marginal tears; sound withal. First Editions in a later binding, retaining the original marbled free endpapers and all edges gilt. The talents and energy of Augustus Welby Pugin are well represented in this collection of his works on medieval architecture and design. Pugin worked so hard as an architect, artist, writer, and promoter of Roman Catholic religion and Gothic style, which he held to be inseparably united, that he suffered a complete mental collapse and died at the age of forty. The final plate of the first work in this volume is an allegorical depiction of a Gothic-style church being demolished while its precious statues, woodwork, and decorations are burned in the street in front of two hideous new buildings. The caption reads: "The End, shewing the fate which will shortly befall the few remains of antient carpentry that have yet escaped the hand of the destroyer!"The ownership inscription reads, "George Holmes / Rufford Old Hall / Lancashire." The location is appropriate, as Rufford Old Hall is regarded as one of the treasures of 16th-century residences in England, with a magnificent Great Hall of Tudor hammer-beam construction, very good collections of arms and decorative arts, and spacious gardens.

        Nachricht von der Verfassung des Blinden-Instituts in Pesth, mit den Gebeten und Liedern der Zöglinge dieser Anstalt. Nebst einer Abhandlung über die Nothwendigkeit, Möglichkeit, den Nutzen, und über die Haupt-Erfordernisse einter Blinden-Erziehungs-Anstalt. Herausgegeben von Anton Joseph Dole?álek, Direktor des Blinden-Instituts. Mit der Abbildung einer eisernen Bettstatt, dem Grundrisse des Instituts-Gebäudes, der Unterrichts-Tabelle und mit Noten zu den Liedern

      Gedruckt mit v. Trattner-Károlyischen Lettern (Herrenhasse Nro 612), Pesth (Pest) 1836 - First edition. Text in German. In publisher's paper. Wrappers typographically ornamented. (7), 8-47, (1) p. and 4 lithograph and engraved plates. Early book on blind education. The "Blinden-Institut in Pest" was the fist institution for the blind in the Habsburg Monarchy and it is among the earliest of such schools in Europe. The school opened in 1826 and in 1836 it moved to its new building and apparently the publication of this book followed the important occasion. Edited by the director of the school Anton Joseph Dole?álek whose intention was to put the emphasis on music education according to the predominant thought of the 19th century that the only possible future for blind children is becoming a musician. The book contains the constitution of the institute, lists the nineteen pupils (officially twenty), five girls and fourteen boys, the house rules, the dress code and the preyers and songs for different times of the day. As illustrations, the lithograph and copper plates, show the floor plan of the building, the iron bedstead used in the institution, the school timetable for each day of the week (mostly music classes) and a plate printed on both sides with the notes and lyrics of the preyer songs. The income on this brochure has been devoted to establish a foundation for poor blind children, as it is printed on the rear wrappers. Early and scarce publication about blind education, especially with such detailed content. WorldCat locates only one copy in institutional holdings in Europe, no copies in the US. Front cover slightly stained, a stain on first leaves, no effect on legibility. Overall in very good condition. In publisher's paper.

      Shawanoe Baptist Mission, Ind. Ter. [Ks.]: J. Meeker, 1836.. 88pp. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. A bit of light foxing. Very good. The second number of McCoy's THE ANNUAL REGISTER..., of which only four numbers were ever printed, containing valuable firsthand particulars regarding the western Indian tribes. McCoy first visited the Prairies in 1828, with follow-up tours during the next three years. In 1831 he settled at the Shawanoe Mission in 1831, which had been founded by Lykins earlier that year. During the following years McCoy travelled widely in the western country. In 1835 he had Jothan Meeker, who had established a press at the Mission a year earlier, print the initial number of THE ANNUAL REGISTER.... McCoy's works are full of information regarding the Indian emigrant's introduction into the new country, and provide details concerning many tribes (e.g. Pawnee, Otoe, Omaha, Cherokee, Delaware, Kickapoo, Osage, Kansas, etc.). Also included are descriptions of the military posts within Indian Territory, conditions of various tribes, etc. Complete sets of the four numbers are rarely met with - even the Streeter set lacked the first number. Printing began in Kansas in 1834 and McCoy's ANNUAL REGISTERs are the first works of any substance printed in the state. SABIN 43111. HOWES M67, "aa." FIELD 983. GRAFF 2586. STREETER SALE 544 (ref).

Werner nach Louis Auguste de Sainson zeigen neben Orten (2 frühe Ansichten von Sidney) und Landschaften zahlreiche Portraits und ethnographische Darstellungen wie Tänze, rituelle Feste, Tätowierungen etc. - Die französische Originalausgabe war von 1830-33 in Paris in 13 Bänden erschienen. Hier der Historische Teil und der Atlas der deutschen Ausgabe in einem Band (alles Erschienene). - Einband etwas bestoßen und beschabt, Textteil stellenweise leicht stockig und zu Beginn im Rand feuchtigkeitsbedingt stärker braunfleckig; die Tafeln nur in den Rändern etwas stockfleckig, die Darstellungen selbst meist sauber. Insgesamt gutes Exemplar. - Complete copy of the German edition with 60 plates. Binding rubbed, text foxed and with heavier marginal staining. The beautiful plates with just minor foxing mostly in the margins, else fine.

        Pickwick Papers (Original Parts 20 in 19)

      Chapman & Hall, London 1836 - First Editions, First Printings in the ORIGINAL MONTHLY PARTS. A superb set in the publisher's green pictorial wrappers with minor wear to the spines and edges. These ORIGINAL wrappers include 27 additional plates with the rare suppressed plates by R. W. Buss in part 3. A total of 70 plates present, with the 27 additions showing different versions of the original 43, some plates being variants not mentioned in Hatton and Cleaver. "These three artists (Seymour, Buss, "Phiz") etched, in all, 92 plates for the completed work; of which 43 are the "Originals" as they appeared in the first issue of the monthly parts, 4 are "Replacements," 2 are "Substitutes," and 24 are "Duplicates" of the originals: total 73. The remaining 19 are not dealt with in this bibliography" (Hatton and Cleaver pp 17). Fourteen of the front wrappers and twelve of the back wrappers are first issue (the wrappers, like the plates, can be found in a number of variants). The text has issue points in twelve of the nineteen books, in this set two of the parts show first issue text and ten show later issue text. The Pickwick advertiser is present and complete in eleven of the sixteen parts which call for it. The set also retains five of the seven "addresses" that were issued in the course of publication. Back ads present are Parts IX, one ad;, part X, one ad; Part XIII, two ads; Part XIV, one ad; Part XV, seven ads; Part XVII, three ads; Part XVIII, four ads; and Part XIX-XX, four ads. This shows twenty-three of the thirty-four ads called for in Hatton and Cleaver. Not complete as for the advertisements, but still with many more ads here than most copies in recent years. An overall excellent set documenting the progression and development of the illustrated plates and their variations housed in a custom clamshell slipcase for preservation.
