        DRAMATIC WORKS AND POEMS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, with Notes, Original and Selected, and Introductory Remarks to Each Play, By Samuel Weller Singer, F.S.A. and A LIFE OF THE POET By Charles Symmons, D.D. in Two Volumes.

      New York George Dearborn 1836 - 2 volumes. First of the edition and a very early American issue. Engraved frontispiece of the Bard and many black and white engravings throughout. Tall 8vo, three quarter contemporary black straight-grain morocco over green pebbled cloth boards, the spine with raised bands gilt lined and decorated, lettered in gilt in two compartments, marbled endpapers. 522; 596pp. A very handsome and attractive early American issuance of Shakespeare’s works, with only light aging. 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.

        TEXAS.

      Lexington, Ky.: J. Clarke & Co., . 1836 - [2],viii ,410pp. plus folding engraved map of Texas on onionskin paper, 26.8 x 34 cm., with original handcolored outline and shading. 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.

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.

        MONOGRAPHY OF THE FAMILY UNIONIDAE. OR NAIADES OF LAMARCK, (FRESH WATER BIVALVE SHELLS,) OF NORTH AMERICA. ILLUSTRATED BY FIGURES DRAWN ON STONE FROM NATURE.

      Philadelphia: J. Dobson, . 1836 - [2],iv,110 (of 118) pp. plus sixty (of sixty- five) colored plates. 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. BENNETT, p.26. McGRATH, pp.36, 39. NISSEN (ZOOLOGY) 944. SABIN 15903.

        THE DEBILITATED SITUATION OF A MONARCHICAL GOVERNMENT WHEN PUFFED UP BY PRIDE AND SELF- IMPORTANCE, WHOSE RESOURCES MUST BE WRUNG FROM THE PEOPLE'S HANDS.THE FLOURISHING CONDITION OF A WELL-FORMED, INDUSTRIOUS REPUBLIC. THE WILLINGNESS DISPLAYED BY THE CITIZEN OF A FREE STATE TO SERVE HIS COUNTRY WITH HIS BLOOD AND FORTUNE [dual caption title].

      [Most likely Philadelphia, but possibly London. ]. 1836 - Lithograph, sheet size: 15 3/4 x 17 3/4 inches. 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.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Stokes

      1836. <p>Buckland, William (1784-1856). Autograph letter signed to Charles Stokes (1783-1853). N.p., 27 Oct. 1836. 3pp. 228 x 187 mm. Small marginal lacuna where seal was broken, light dampstaining along central fold, seal reinforced with clear tape.</p>. <p>Letter with excellent scientific content from geologist and paleontologist William Buckland, founder of the Oxford school of geology and author of the best-selling Reliquiae Diluvianae (1823), which promoted a catastrophist version of Earth&#39;s history marked by "discontinuous assemblages of organic life being created and dying out" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Buckland&#39;s letter discusses a significant geological discovery-the relationship between the New Red Sandstone strata in England and in Chemnitz, Germany, based on samples of petrified wood found in both regions.</p><p>"Many thanks for your letter rec&#39;d at Bristol - I was sorry to miss you in the 1?2 day I was in London last week. I write to ask if you have rec&#39;d from Revd. Mr. Bree of Allesley near Coventry some polished thin slices of silicified wood which he promised me to send up to you. I was at Allesley last week whither I have been longing to go for the last 10 years & have ascertained that the matrix from which the silicified wood in the gravel & on the surface of the fields of that district has been derived is the lower region of the New Red Sandstone - this discovery is very important in its relation to the equivalent strata near Chemnitz. "</p><p>Chemnitz is the site of a Permian-era petrified forest, remarkable for its "outstanding three-dimensional preservation of particularly large fossil remains, made possible by siliceous permineralization, [which] provides the opportunity to study the gross morphology, anatomy and internal organization of plant tissues in a way not allowed by other preservational states" (Lucas et al., p. 8). Bree&#39;s samples from Allesley were apparently of a similar nature.</p><p>" shall present a notice of my evidence of identification, to the Geol. Soc. next Wednesday & I shall be glad to transfer to yourself & Brown the examination & description of the nature of the fossil woods of Allesley. I recognized in Bree&#39;s collection which is very large, none of the palms and Dendrolites of Cotton and Sprengel all appeared to be nearer to Coniferae but in the greater no. the annular rings of growth were very obscure. If you have received Bree&#39;s packet I wish you wd. get ready by Wednesday a short Notice on its contents to be read after my paper which I concluded with saying, if you will permit me, that you & R. Brown have undertaken the botanical examination of the nature of the fossil plants found in the locality. . . ."</p><p>"R. Brown" refers to botanist Robert Brown (1773-1858), best known for naming the cell nucleus and for being the first to observe the seemingly random movement of particles suspended in a liquid or gas - what we now call Brownian motion. Brown&#39;s investigations of the cellular tissues of fossilized woods are noted in Buckland&#39;s Geology and Mineralogy Considered with Reference to Natural Theology (1836), published the same year this letter was written. Rev. William Thomas Bree (1786-1863), vicar of All Saints&#39; church in Allesley, was a noted observer of all aspects of natural history who wrote many articles and letters on local plants, insects and bird life, a large number of which were published in Loudon&#39;s Magazine of Natural History between 1829 and 1837. Buckland&#39;s correspondent was Charles Stokes, a stockbroker and amateur geologist who collected specimens of petrified wood. Buckland stated in his letter that he would present his "notice of my evidence of identification" to the Geological Society on the following Wednesday (Nov. 1); however, he did not do so until December 14 (see Proceedings of the Geological Society of London 2 [1838]: 439). Buckland&#39;s paper, titled "On the Occurrence of Silicified Trunks of Large Trees in the New Red Sandstone Formation of Poikilitic Series, at Allesley, near Coventry," was followed by "Further Notice on a partially Petrified Piece of Wood from an Ancient Roman Aqueduct at Eilsen, in the Principality of Lippe-Buckeberg," by Stokes. Lucas et al., "Non-Marine Permian Biostratigraphy and Biochronology: An Introduction," Geological Society, London, Special Publications 265 (2006): 1-14.</p>

        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 carefully compiled from the best authorities extant by David H. Burr. A new edition revised and corrected to the present time

      New York: Wm. Hall & Co, 1836. Small folio. Expertly bound to style in dark blue half morocco over contemporary blue embossed cloth-covered boards, title panel blocked in gilt on upper cover, the flat spine divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment 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&#39;s seminal New York State Map of 1804 (under De Witt&#39;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&#39;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, under the title of A New Universal Atlas in 1835. The present second edition appeared in the following year. Cf. Phillips Atlases 1379a (1835 edition); cf. Ristow p.106 (1835 edition); Rumsey 2849. (15 x 12 1/4 inches). Engraved throughout, title, 1p. contents list, 63 hand-coloured engraved plates.
