Edition originale de la 2e partie (la 1re partie fut publiée en 1835) du dernier livre de Charles Fourier, qui devait au départ constituer la suite de "La Réforme industrielle" et dont le plan fut sans cesse remanié afin de répondre aux critiques de la presse, ce qui explique sa pagination extrêmement complexe, presque digne de celle d'un incunable. Notre exemplaire est bien complet et parfaitement conforme à Del Bo, p. 7. Ce texte n'a pas été repris dans les oeuvres complètes de Fourier publiées au XIXe. Bel exemplaire dans une bonne reliure moderne, malgré des rousseurs éparses et sans gravité. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Our copy appears to be the Renshaw edition with the Black title-leaf (the Renshaw edition may possibly be a reissue of the Black sheets with additional material). The Renshaw edition was the first to add the three papers on the nerves of the encephalon originally read before the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1838. These papers were published separately that year and also appeared in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh for 1839. Gordon-Taylor 23.</p>

        Payta Kootha A Shawanee Warrior

      Philadephia: E. C. Biddle, 1836. A fine image from McKenney and Hall&#39;s &#39;Indian Tribes of North America&#39;: `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians&#39; (Field),` a landmark in American culture&#39; (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&#39;s Indian Gallery. Most of King&#39;s original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall&#39;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&#39;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.

        Book of Gems The Poets and Artists of Great Britain. Edited by S. C. Hall. [ 2 volumes]. The Modern Poets and Artists of Great Britain. [1 volume].

      London:: Saunders and Otley 1837 1838 1836 - FIRST EDITIONS. 3 volumes. 8vo, 210 x 131 mms., pp. xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs]; xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs]; xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs], engraved title-pages, engraved vignettes and head-pieces throughout all three volumes, contemporary diced roan, spines ornately gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; lacks labels, but a very good set. Hall (1800 - 1889) was probably one of the busiest and most industrious authors, compilers, and editors of the 19th century. Peter Mandler in ODNB concludes his entry on Hall, with this observation: "And yet his life as a whole stands as a model of Victorian energy and uprightness, and his work as editor and animateur did much to popularize art and literature and thus to support the mass market for high culture so characteristic of the middle third of the nineteenth century." He was careful to use contemporary or recent artists for the illustrations - Constable, Gainsborough, Landseer, Reynolds. among others. To this one must add that he was also regarded as something of a prig with a high-mindedness that was more judgmental than practical; he was almost certainly the model for Mr. Pecksniff in Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit.

        An Account of the War in Portugal between Don Pedro and Don Miguel

      London, T. & W. Boone,, 1836. 2 volumes, octavo, original brown diapered cloth-backed drab boards, paper labels to the spines. Three plans. Slightly rubbed and soiled, hines a little cracked, some browning particularly to the endpapers and plates, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Having defended British interests in Portugal and the Azores during 1830, in 1832 Napier was invited to command Donna Maria&#39;s fleet in her struggle against her "wicked uncle", Dom Miguel. "After securing an advance on his pay, and a large life insurance policy, Napier relieved Admiral Sir George Sartorious and, to avoid making too explicit a breach of the Foreign Enlistment Act, adopted the nom de guerre of Dom Carlos de Ponza." He arrived in Oporto in June 1833, and despite appalling conditions, near mutiny amongst the mixed British and Portuguese crews, and mass desertions, succeeded in defeating the Miguelite navy off Cape St. Vincent in July for which he was given the title of Viscount St. Vincent by the grateful Dom Pedro. In the year that followed Napier built on this success, becoming by his own report "quite a &#39;general&#39;" in command of the motley force including English marines and sailors, Portuguese Marines, and the Scots regiment that drove the Miguelites out of their northern strongholds. When Donna Maria was declared de jure Queen of Portugal in 1834 Napier realised that without the threat of Dom Miguel it would be impossible to maintain any serious organization in the Portuguese Navy, he therefore resigned his command and severed all connection with the Portuguese Government. Uncommon, a nice set in the publisher&#39;s cloth and boards.

      [Mexico City. April 14, 1836].. [2]pp. plus integral blank leaf. Dbd. Old folds and stab holes, minor foxing. Contemporary ink notations. Very good. A very nice example of the Decree of the Congreso General, which was approved by José Justo Corro, President ad interim, on April 14, 1836, and promulgated the same day by José María Tornel, substituting perpetual banishment for the death penalty in the case of certain Texan prisoners of war, but not members of the government and leaders of the revolution, and fixing in some cases lesser penalties. Dated and signed at end, in print: "México 14 de Abril de 1836. Tornel." This copy has contemporary ink notations at the head of the first page, and after the end of the text, signed by Jose Antonio Arraya, dated in 1836. It is unclear exactly who Arraya was, but there is a signed circular from Arraya in the Houston Endowment Texana Collection at the San Jacinto Museum of History in which Arraya acknowledges the succession of José Justo Corro to presidency of Mexico and expresses his desire to end the war in Texas. No other mention of Arraya can be found. "This decree was passed in the flush of the victory at the Alamo, applied to those rebellious Texans who surrendered within fifteen days or such greater or lesser time as Santa Anna might fix, and gave Santa Anna the right to fix the times and places of embarkation of those banished. Those not already subject to the death penalty might be punished by ten years imprisonment in interior regions of the Mexican republic, distant at least 70 leagues from the coast and the land frontiers" -Streeter.

        A New Universal Atlas; comprising separate maps of all the principal empires, kingdoms & states throughout the world: and forming a distinct atlas of the United States . a new edition revised and corrected to the present time

      Wm. Hall & Co, New York 1836 - Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, neatly rebacked to style, and with neat repairs to the corners Provenance: Julia H. Alexander (pencilled signature) A fine copy of this important work from one of the greatest early American cartographers David H. Burr was one of the great American mapmakers of the 19th century. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, he began his career leading a road survey through the southern counties of New York for the purpose of building a highway. This led to his being given, in 1829, the responsibility of revising Simeon De Witt's seminal New York State Map of 1804 (under De Witt's direction) to account for the considerable changes that had occurred over the last generation. This and the Atlas of the State of New York he published in 1829 established Burr's prominence in American cartography. The success of his State Atlas persuaded him to aim at a wider audience and publish a general atlas. Ristow states that Burr completed only eight of the 63 maps by 1832 when his involvement in the project was severely curtailed when he accepted the position of topographer for the United States Post Office Department. His maps were engraved by Thomas Illman and Edward Pillbrow and they took over the responsibility for finishing the work, although Burr retained an editorial role, and he was probably able to make use of his new position which gave him access to geographical material sent in from postmasters throughout the land. The present work was first published by D.S. Stone of New York City; this second edition appeared in the following year. Phillips 771 (ref). (14 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches). Engraved throughout, title, 1p. contents list, 63 hand-coloured engraved maps. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Texas

      Lexington, KY: J. Clarke, 1836. 12mo., (7 x 4 4/8 inches). Folding engraved map of Texas (11 4/8 x 14 4/8 inches) (early tape repair near the gutter) (spotting throughout). Original publisher&#39;s blue cloth titled in gilt on the spine (extremities just touched, endpapers renewed). Holley&#39;s first book entitled "Texas", published in 1833, was the first book written in English about Texas. The present work, published three years later, was substantially rewritten and is essentially a different book, and in Jenkins&#39;s view: "a much more important book, and had considerably more influence than her earlier work. In addition to the San Jacinto reports, it includes the first book printing of the Texas Declaration of Independence, of the Republic of Texas Constitution, of Travis&#39; famous letter from the Alamo, of Austin&#39;s Louisville Address of 1836, and other key documents of the revolution. It includes the full text of the Mexican Constitution of 1824 and translations of the colonization laws, as well as chapters on money and banking, the mails, trade, natural history, society and manners, religion and Indians. It includes the best physical description of Texas up to that time, and a clear and concise analysis of the colonization and land grant system and of Austin&#39;s colonization activities" (Jenkins). There is much practical information for emigrants to Texas, and also an account of Stephen Austin&#39;s farewell address. Though Austin arranged for a land grant in Galveston for Holley, she never was able to raise enough money to move there permanently, though her book became a practical guide to many who did make the move.

        The Funeral of Old Tammany. Printed broadside showing a funeral procession with the hearse in the lead being driven by the editor of the Courier and Enquirer. Among the mourners are also the editors for The Times and The Truth Teller. From various of the mourners are inscriptions inside balloons. To the right in the background is a view of Tammany Hall with a flag at half mast. Printed under the title is "This mournful ceremony took place in the City of New York on the 10th day of November 1836. The lamented individual had been long subject to a vast complication of disorders, whic[h] though combatted with great skill and perseverance by, Doctors, Humbug, Monopoly & Office, at last carried him off. The symptoms became extremely alarming on

      New York: H. R. Robinson, [ca. 1836] - The comments of the mourners include a fireman in the background asking "Who killed Old Tammany?" Another fireman beside him answers "James Gulick." This is a reference to the excitement of the election of Tammany opponent James Gulick, deposed Chief of the Fire Department, to the office of Register. Relatively little is known about Henry R. Robinson. He was located at 48 and 52 Courtlandt Street in New York in 1836-7, where he worked largely as a caricaturist. His primary output was graphic humor and political cartoons, and he drew on stone most of the unsigned prints he published. His cartoons "are important, and spirited, have long speeches in 'balloons,' often appear colored, but are sometimes difficult to understand without delving into detailed history of the politics of the times." (Peters, American on Stone, pp. 337-8.) The only known historical reference to Robinson is in Frederick Hudson's History of Journalism in America (1873), which notes that Robinson "lined the curbstones and covered the old fences of New York with his peculiarly characteristic caricatures during Jackson's and Van Buren's administrations . ." Image area is approx. 19 1/4" l x 11 1/4", in 27 1/4" x 15 3/4" frame. . Some minor chipping, trimmed with minor loss to text, inked stamp in upper right corner above Tammany Hall ("From the United States Bazaar. No. 324 North Market St. Albany N.Y."), otherwise a very nice piece. See A History of American Graphic Humor, pp. 171-2
