        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 The only known historical reference to Robinson is in Frederick Hudson's History of Journalism in America (1873), which notes that Robinson "lined the curbstones and covered the old fences of New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

        Woman of the Snake Tribe/Woman of the Cree Tribe

      London, Paris, Coblenz 1836 - Karl Bodmer Illustrated plate from Travels in the Interior of North America Paris, 1832-1843 Hand-colored aquatint engraving Paper size approximately 17 1/2&#148; x 22 1/2&#148; 35&#148; x 28 1/2&#148; framed Karl Bodmer was a little-known Swiss painter when he was chosen by Prince Maximilian of Prussia to accompany his voyage to America, in order to document in pictorial terms the expedition. With the rest of Maximilian&#146;s company, the two traveled among the Plains Indians from 1832 to 1834, a time when the Plains and the Rockies were still virtually unknown. They arrived in the West before acculturation had begun to change the lives of the Indians, and Bodmer, who was a protegé of the great naturalist von Humbolt, brought a trained ethnologist&#146;s eye to the task. The Bodmer/Maximilian collaboration produced a record of their expedition that is incontestably the finest early graphic study of the Plains tribes. Maximilian and Bodmer journeyed from St. Louis up the Missouri River on the American Fur Company steamboat &#147;Yellowstone,&#148; stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, &#147;Assiniboin,&#148; to Fort Union, where they met the Crees and Assiniboins. The expedition spent its first winter at Fort Clark, where the Mandans in particular excited Bodmer&#146;s attention, although he was also to draw the Minatarri and Crow peoples. The explorers continued by keelboat to Fort Mackenzie, which proved to be the westernmost point of their journey. After living among and studying the Blackfeet for several weeks, Maximilian decided that it was too dangerous to continue, so the travelers returned southward, reaching St. Louis in May 1834. After the conclusion of the journey, Bodmer spent four years in Paris supervising the production of the aquatints made from his drawings. These prints rank with the finest Western art in any medium, and they are the most complete record of the Plains Indians before the epidemics of the mid-19th century had decimated their numbers, and before the white man&#146;s expansion had taken their lands. In contrast to other artist-explorers of the 19th century, such as George Catlin, Bodmer was well-trained in the classic European tradition. The work that he did in America is considered to be the high point of a distinguished career. Perhaps more significant, the plates made from Bodmer's sketches were the first truly accurate images of the Plains Indians to reach the general public. Because the 1837 smallpox epidemic killed more than half the Blackfeet and almost all the Mandans, Bodmer&#146;s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian&#146;s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and beautiful records of the landscape of the American West as it appeared when Bodmer saw it, just before westward expansion took hold and began the indelible transformation of the frontier.

        Dictionnaire historique et iconographique de toutes les opérations et des instruments, bandages et appareils de la chirurgie ancienne et moderne.

      Paris, chez l¿auteur, J.B. Baillière, Deville-Cavelin, J. Rouvier et Lebouvier, P. Lucas, Mansut, 1836. - 1836, in-8; XVI, 248 pp., 21 planches h.t., demi-basane vert bouteille, rousseurs sur certains feuillets, envoi autographe signé de l'auteur, cachet sur la page de titre : « Société de Médecine du Loiret » (société ayant existé de 1891 à 1913). Première et seule édition, très rare. Ce dictionnaire encyclopédique devait être publié par livraisons, mais seule la première a paru (A-Anévrisme). Comme l'indiqua Gaujot," il fut conçu d'après un plan un peu trop vaste". Les principales rubriques de ce remarquable ouvrage, très documenté et richement illustré, sont les suivantes : Accouchement (51 pp., 10 planches), Acupuncture (7 pp.), Amputation (57 pp., 5 planches), Anévrysme (28 pp., 5 planches). Le dernier article, sur l'anévrisme, apparait inachevé, mais cet exemplaire est bien complet, la collation étant similaire à celle des quatre exemplaires recensés au CCfr. Chaque rubrique est suivie d'une importante bibliographie. Colombat indique dans l'avant-propos qu'il eut recours non seulement aux traités et dictionnaires, mais aussi à de rares manuscrits, à des collections de thèses, journaux, et aux instruments du coutelier Charrière et à ceux de la collection de Jules Cloquet. Les planches, précieuses, illustrent de très nombreux instruments. Marc Colombat de l'Isère (1797-1851), originaire de Vienne, fut un médecin particulièrement ingénieux. Il inventa un très grand nombre d'instruments et se fit remarquer par ses études sur le bégaiement, et par celles concernant la chirurgie gynécologique et urinaire.

        De l'Instruction criminelle, considérée dans ses rapports généraux et particuliers avec les lois nouvelles et la jurisprudence de la Cour de cassation.

      - Paris, Thorel et Guilbert, 1836. 4 tomes en 3 très forts volumes in-4, demi-chagrin de l'époque, dos à 4 nerfs plats ornés de compartiments garnis d'un décor doré d'encadrement, de palettes et filets dorés en tête et pied, tranches mouchetées. Seconde édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée. Les troisième et quatrième volumes, qui contiennent la table générale, ont été donnés pour prolonger l'ouvrage aux institutions de la Restauration et de la Monarchie de Juillet. Selon Camus-Dupin (n° 2326): "Le commentaire le plus étendu qui ait encore paru sur le Code d'instruction criminelle". Les travaux de Joseph Carnot ont été largement mis à profit lors des révisions libérales du Code pénal instituées par la loi du 28 avril 1832, dans le sens d'un assouplissement du dispositif répressif, en particulier par la suppression des peines corporelles et l'institution d'une échelle des peines politiques distinctes de celles de droit commun. Frère de Lazare Carnot, magistrat juge à la Cour de cassation, l'auteur avait été l'un des membres de la commission chargée de réviser le Code pénal. Il fut élu membre de l'Académie des sciences morales et politiques en 1832. Ex-libris "G. Demartial" doré en pied. Bon exemplaire, frais, bien relié. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Odonto Crispum, Annie Louise. (original watercolor)

      - James Laird Macfarlane ; 1836 -1913; Original watercolors of orchids; British, c. 1895-1900; Framed: 14 1/2&#146;x 11 1/2" A native of Paisley near Glasgow, Macfarlane studied at the Paisley Art School and then made his way to London to seek his fame and fortune. He may initially have been employed in fabric painting, but he soon found his niche, painting fruit for such publications as the Florist and Pomologist and freelancing paintings for nurserymen like William Ball. Eventually, he began to focus on commisson based projects, finding employmnet from wealthy orchid-growers wishing to record their triumphs of orchid culture. Through this period, he pioneered the style and format which came to be used for record keeping by the Royal Horticultural Society's Orchid Committee. Macfarlane&#146;s admiration for orchids can be understand by their enduring history. Epiphytic orchids were first were brought to Great Britain in the 1700s from the West Indies and China and by the end of that century 15 species were growing at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in Great Britain. Orchids can impart a wide variety of messages, but historically the meanings of orchids have included wealth, love and beauty. To the ancient Greeks, orchids suggested virility, and after the rise in popularity of orchid collections in Victorian England, the meaning of orchids moved towards symbols of luxury and refinement. Orchids have also been believed to carry various healing and protective properties, allowing them to ward off disease. The Aztecs were said to drink a mixture of the vanilla orchid and chocolate to give them power and strength, and the Chinese believe orchids can help cure lung illnesses and coughs. Yet it is their graceful appearance that is no doubt responsible for their fascination among audiences past and present. Today, the meanings of orchids are generally regarded as symbols of rare and delicate beauty. Indeed, among the many different varietals of flowers, the orchid holds a special place as one of the most alluring and captivating, making them a special symbol of exotic beauty. Their charm and mystique delight those who receive them, for few other flowers have the ability to impress their recipient in the same way that the orchid can. Macfarlane&#146;s intricately drawn watercorlors reflect why flower specialists consider orchids to be the the world's most evolved flowers.

The charm of the two lithographic plates (and the moodiness of the litho of Cape Split) has long been admired by collectors and viewers of Canadian prints. New endpapers. Spine professionally rebacked, and incorporating the original linen spine covering almost in its entirety. Some scattered foxing throughout, some light offsetting affecting some leaves.

        Rose tricolore

      l'auteur, [Paris 1836 - A lovely image by Redouté from his very rare final work "Choix de Soixante Roses," a book comprised of varieties not found in his monumental "Les Roses." The Choix de Soixante Roses was "the last of Redouté's original publications, a folio volume containing sixty plates of new roses printed in color after Redouté's method. The book was dedicated to his former pupil Louise-Marie d'Orleans, daughter of Louis Philippe, and now the first queen of the Belgians. In this last publication, Redouté honors his country of birth, if only by means of the dedication" (Stafleu, "Redouté - Peintre de Fleurs" in A Catalogue of Redoutéana Exhibited at the Hunt Botanical Library). The work was issued by Redouté at the end of his glorious career, on the heels of the success of his better known Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs . Like that work, the plates in Choix de Soixante Roses , issued in 15 parts, were produced via the method he developed nearly fifty years earlier: colour printed stipple engravings finished with additional hand-colouring. This method allowed Redouté to produce remarkably life-like and delicate depictions. By the time of this final work, however, lithography had largely replaced his laborious method. Placing these images in that context gives special meaning to this, his final encore. Both the book and images from the book are very rare. Stock could locate no more than 12 complete copies of the work extant and no copies have appeared at auction in over a quarter century. Dunthorne 234 ("not seen"); Great Flower Books, p. 129; Nissen 1593; Stock 2364. Stipple engraving printed in colors and finished by hand.

        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&#39; conversations with escaped slaves, correspondence with other groups, and an account of the Society&#39;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&#39;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&#146;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&#146;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&#146;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 &#147;our contemplated school,&#148; Williams decided to visit England and go &#147;from house to house to obtain subscriptions.&#148; 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&#146;s hospitality. "Excepting the difficulties I met with at the custom house, I have met with nothing but kind and respectful treatment,&#148; Williams informed Schroeder. &#147;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]
