        Annual Report of the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society. Being a Concise History of the Cases of the Slave Child, Med, and the Women Demanded as Slaves of the Supreme Judicial Court of Mass. With All the Other Proceedings of the Society. [Cover title]: Right and Wrong in Boston in 1836

      Boston: Published by the Society. Isaac Knapp Printer. 1836. First. First edition. Printed wrappers. 12mo. 90pp. Printed brown wrappers. Slight staining and modest overall use to the wrappers, else an attractive and pleasing near fine copy. When the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society declined to admit women, the sisters Anne Greene Chapman and Maria Weston Chapman banded with other women to form their own society. They were radical for the time in that they invited African-Americans to join and experienced great opposition even from other Abolitionists. This was their first annual report which details the activities of the Society including a call for the abolition of slavery in Washington, DC, transcripts of members' conversations with escaped slaves, correspondence with other groups, and an account of the Society's intervention on behalf of a six-year-old slave girl brought from Louisiana to keep her mistress company while she summered in Massachusetts. The Society brought suit successfully and was a landmark in American slave law. Chapman also uses the report to expound upon women's rights, responding to the suggestion that women are inferior: "Such harem notions, the relics of barbarous ages, will not be entirely extinguished while slavery exists, for they are only manifestations of that spirit." Also contains the first book appearance of "To the Memory of Charles B. Storrs" by John Greenleaf Whittier (BAL 21698). Also issued in cloth, the wrappered issue is exceptionally uncommon. .

        Autograph letter

      1836 - Three pages on one leaf, 8vo., approximately 400 words; integral address leaf in Williams's hand; folded; unpublished; enclosed in a folding box ---- Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and schooled at the New York African Free School, Peter Williams, Jr., (1780-1840) served as the lay reader at the primarily white Trinity Protestant Episcopal Church, New York City, before organizing blacks into a separate congregation in 1818. The following year, they built and formally consecrated St. Philip's African Church. Williams was licensed to preach, became rector in 1820, and ordained the first black Episcopal priest in 1826. A firm believer in racial equality, Williams was a cofounder of the first black newspaper in the United States, Freedom’s Journal, in 1827. Six years later, Williams help found the American Anti-Slavery Society. In 1834, he was forced to resign from the Society’s board to pacify anti-abolitionists, who, alleging that he had conducted an interracial marriage, had maliciously desecrated St. Philips. Although Williams withdrew from the inner circle of the abolitionist organization, he still lectured widely on the movement’s behalf and traveled extensively to promote black community projects. For a decade, Williams and John Schroeder, assistant minister of Trinity Church, collaborated on projects advancing educational opportunities for black New Yorkers. Both men raised funds for New York Manumission Society schools. In 1836, hoping to secure financial backing for “our contemplated school,” Williams decided to visit England and go “from house to house to obtain subscriptions.” This July 30, 1836, letter was written to the Reverend Schroeder soon after arriving in London. He mentioned a lamentable incident that had occurred prior to sailing. Despite having been issued a passport affirming his citizenship based upon nationality and race, he was denied passage aboard an American vessel because of his color and was necessarily obliged to accept a British captain’s hospitality. "Excepting the difficulties I met with at the custom house, I have met with nothing but kind and respectful treatment,” Williams informed Schroeder. “My color has no disadvantage to me here. [Away from America] a colored man is led to forget his complexion, and to be satisfied with the hue God stamped upon him - I need not say that I feel this to be very agreeable to my mind." Black abolitionist correspondence rarely appears on the market, and Williams letters, especially, are exceedingly scarce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

A very well preserved set. "The object then of the present publication is to afford the general reader a correct edition of Shakespeare, accompanied by an abridged commentary, in which all superfluous and refuted explanations and conjectures, and all controversies and squabbles of contending critics should be omitted; and such elucidations only of obsolete words and obscure phrases, and such critical illustrations of the text as might be deemed most generally useful be retained" [preface]. And so it accomplishes its goal. The editor also includes a section on the life of Shakespeare, an elegy written by Ben Jonson, and a reprint of the Bard’s famous will in which he bequeaths to his wife his "second best bed, with the furniture." A nice early American set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" and "A Little Talk about Spring and the Sweeps."

      1836 - In: THE LIBRARY OF FICTION, or Family Story Teller; consisting of Original Tales, Essays, and Sketches of Character. With Fourteen Illustrations [in each volume]. Vol. I [& II]. London: Chapman and Hall, 1836/1837. Bound in contemporary half calf with marbled boards. First Edition in book form. Chapman & Hall's monthly fiction periodical "The Library of Fiction" began in April 1836, starting right off in that issue with the sketch "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" by a writer using the pseudonym "Boz." The third (June) issue included another, "A Little Talk about Spring and the Sweeps." When the Second Series of SKETCHES BY BOZ was published in December 1836, the latter tale was included (re-titled "The First of May"); "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" was the only one of Dickens's periodical sketches that did not appear in either volume of SKETCHES BY BOZ -- but it was added when SKETCHES BY BOZ was subsequently issued in serial parts, from Nov 1837 through June 1839.~These two volumes contain the monthly issues of this new periodical, with preliminary leaves added for this book form (the second volume, issued in 1837, did not have any Dickens contributions but is included here). "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" includes two plates by Seymour, and "Spring and the Sweeps" has one by Buss; both illustrators would soon be involved with PICKWICK PAPERS. Other contributors include Edward Mayhew, G. P. R. James, Douglas Jerrold, Mary Russell Mitford and the Countess of Blessington.~This set is bound in contemporary half calf with gilt-paneled spine and black leather spine label, and marbled paper-covered boards. Condition is very good (minor edgewear of the marbled boards, small worm-hole in the first few leaves of Vol II, dampmark in the margfin of some plates). See Podeschi E121.

Original tan muslin, printed paper label (chipped). Some wear and repairs to cloth. Moderate foxing. Overall very good. The Hooker map is clean and crisp. Gift bookplate dated 1838 from G.M. Bryan to Nu Pi Kappa Society at Kenyon College in Ohio. Guy M. Bryan was the nephew of Stephen F. Austin. Huntington Library deaccession stamp on rear pastedown. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt extra. This is Mrs. Holley's second book on Texas, intended as a practical and informative guide for emigrant's to the area. Despite the title, which is similar to the author's Baltimore 1833 book, this is a completely different work. Jenkins calls it "a much more important book." Included herein is a general history of Texas to May 5, 1836, a printing of the Texas and Mexican constitutions, Stephen Austin's farewell address of March 7, and specific information regarding settlements, towns, business and banking matters, transportation and communication facilities, etc. While her earlier book served to promote the enthusiastic interest of prospective emigrants to Texas, Mrs. Holley in this work provides the hard facts of what they would find there. As Stephen F. Austin's cousin, she was in a position to know. The Hooker "Map of the State of Coahuila and Texas" was published several times, with revisions to reflect the changing face of Texas. This edition is quite striking, with the grants colored. There are numerous additions to this map over past issues. Though the 1833 Holley commands a higher price than the 1836, the 1836 is seldom offered on the rare book market. STREETER TEXAS 1207. RAINES, p.116. HOWES H593, "aa." SABIN 32528.

        Twelve Lectures on the Connexion Between Science and Revealed Religion. Delivered in Rome. In two volumes

With a folding map frontispiece to volume I and a folding engraved frontispiece to volume II. Additional double page plate to volume I. Complete in two volumes. Nicholas Patrick Stephen Wiseman (18021865). In the autumn of 1818 Wiseman and nine other English students departed for Rome, where they entered the English College. They were its first English students since the French revolutionary army had ransacked it in 1798. Through the influence of Pope Leo XII, Wiseman was awarded a professorship in the Roman (later the Pontifical Gregorian) University. He was soon elected to the Royal Asiatic Society and in 1831 was made an honorary member of the Royal Society of Literature. In 1827 the pope named him special preacher for the many English visitors in Rome. About this time Wiseman also began work on the theology of the eucharist as well as on a series of lectures on science and revealed religion. His efforts led to the publication of The Real Presence of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Eucharist, Proved from Scripture (1836) and Twelve Lectures on the Connexion between Science and Revealed Religion (1836).

        Mo-Hon-Go, an Osage Woman

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1836. 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. Mo-Hon-Go was an Osage woman, who in 1827 unknowingly embarked on a three year cross-continental journey after being duped by the French con artist, David Delaunay. Under the pretense that he was taking them to Washington to meet the President, Delaunay took a group of Osage that included Mo-Hon-Go and her husband Kihegashugah, or Little Chief, to France, Holland, and Germany, where he displayed them as primitive curiosities in a successful Wild West show. When they arrived in Le Havre from New Orleans, he told them they were merely taking an extremely circuitous route to Washington via Europe. Delaunay was arrested and imprisoned for debt and the group was left destitute and disoriented. They wandered the streets, Mohongo pregnant, and all of them hungry. Eventually, Bishop DuBourg and Lafayette kindly paid for their passage back to America, though several members soon died of smallpox, including Mohongo's husband. Wandering again in Norfolk, Virginia, they were boarded by charitable strangers. Someone alerted McKenney of their situation, and ultimately, Mohongo (and her daughter) and the remaining group were brought to Washington to meet President Jackson in 1830. They were then given passage back to Missouri. The tribe however in the meantime had been moved to Oklahoma, and was there that Mo-Hon-Go re-united with her people. McKenney arranged for this beautiful King mother and child portrait to be done, despite a growing clamor of complaint about the costs of the Indian portraits in Congress, and it's one of his finest works. 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 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 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.
