        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.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Stokes.

      1836 - 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. 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's history marked by "discontinuous assemblages of organic life being created and dying out" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Buckland'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."Many thanks for your letter rec'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'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. "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's samples from Allesley were apparently of a similar nature." 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'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'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. . . ."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's investigations of the cellular tissues of fossilized woods are noted in Buckland'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' 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's Magazine of Natural History between 1829 and 1837. Buckland'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).

        DE ARCHITECTURA LIBRI DECEM

Bound in original paper-covered boards with paper spine labels. Probably written between 27 and 23 BC, DE ARCHITECTURA is the only contemporary source on classical architecture to have survived. Divided into ten sections or "books", it covers almost every aspect of Roman architecture. The ten books are: & Town planning, architecture in general, and the qualifications required of an architect; Building materials ;Temples and the orders of architecture, & continuation of book 3; Civil buildings ; Domestic buildings ; Pavements and decorative plasterwork ; Water supplies ; Sciences influencing architecture - geometry, mensuration, astronomy etc.; Use and construction of machines.& Roman architects were significantly different from their modern counterparts, acting as engineers, architects, artists, and craftsmen combined. Vitruvius was very much of this type, a fact reflected in De architectura. He covers a wide variety of subjects which he saw as touching on architecture. This included many aspects which would not seem obvious to modern eyes, ranging from mathematics to astronomy, to meteorology and medicine. In the Roman conception, architecture needed to take into account everything touching on the physical and intellectual life of man and his surroundings.& Avery p. 1071.

        Red Jacket. Seneca War Chief

      Philadelphia: 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. One of the most famous images of a Native American, this portrait of Red Jacket depicts one of the most important Indian leaders and spokesmen of the early national period. Red Jacket was born into the Seneca tribe, near present-day Geneva, New York, about 1750. Fighting on the British side during the American Revolution, as did most of the Iroquois, he habitually worn a red coat presented to him by the British, hence the origin of his English name (his real name, Sagoyewatha, means "Keeper Awake"). It was as an orator that Red Jacket became famous, speaking out forthrightly in the years after the Revolution for the rights of his people. He played a prominent role in negotiations with the new Federal government, heading a delegation of fifty to Philadelphia in 1792. There President Washington presented him with a special peace medal, a large oval silver plate with an image of Washington shaking his hand engraved upon it. Red Jacket wore this medal in every portrait painted of him (today it is in the Buffalo Historical Society). Red Jacket was not unopposed in his leadership, and he fought both to protect his nation against white encroachment and enemies within. In 1801 opponents within the tribe managed to put him on trial for witchcraft, punishable by death; in a famous display of his oratorical skills, he successfully defended himself. In the 19th century, as continued settlement of upstate New York pressed against Iroquois lands, he became internationally famous for his articulate espousal of Indian rights; for example, a pamphlet entitled Indian Eloquence, published in 1811, gave translations of some of his speeches. He battled for his people with words against missionaries and white governments, trying to preserve the lands and rights of the Seneca. By the 1820&#39;s, as McKenney notes, he was as great an object of wonder for visitors to upstate New York as Niagara Falls. In 1827 Red Jacket paid a visit to Washington, to argue his unhappiness over the doings of missionaries among the Seneca with Thomas McKenney, then head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and President Adams. It was on this visit that Charles Bird King painted the porrtrait after which this image was engraved. Red Jacket died a few years later, in 1830. McKenney and Hall&#39;s &#39;Indian Tribes of North America&#39; 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&#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 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.

        A New Dictionary of the English Language

      London - William Pickering 1836 - Afirst editionofA New Dictionary of the English Languageby Charles Richardson. Volume I A-K, volume II L-Z and with a Preliminary Essay to front of volume II. In two volumes complete. First edition. Second in importance in early English dictionaries only to Johnson. Charles Richardson (1775 - 1865) was an English teacher, lexicographer, and linguist. A philologist of the school of John Horne Tooke. In 1815 he published Illustrations to English Philology, consisting of a critical examination of Samuel Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language and a reply to Dugald Stewart's criticism of Horne Tooke's Diversions of Purley. In 1818 the opening portions of an English lexicon, by Richardson, appeared in the Encyclopdia Metropolitana. In 1834 he issued the prospectus of a New English Dictionary, and the work itself was published by Pickering in parts between January 1835 and the spring of 1837. The dictionary is a republication of the lexicon, with improvements and additions. Richardson's principle was to rely on etymology. Despite many technical failings the work was commended by the Quarterly Magazine and the Gentleman's Magazine. An abridged edition, without the quotations, appeared in 1839, with a new preface, but uncorrected. Richardson also published a book on the study of language, an explanation of Tooke's Diversions of Purley (1854). He contributed papers to the Gentleman's Magazine, and wrote essays on English Grammar and English Grammarians, and on Fancy and Imagination. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedown. Condition: In buckram bindings. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, fading to spine and slight rubbing and marksto boards. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with slight background foxing in places and handling marks. With heavier foxing to endpapers and slight tidemarks to first and last few pages of volume II. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        A Chart of the Red Sea, from Jiddah, to the Straits of Bab-el-Mandeb, Surveyed in the Years 1830, 31, 32, & 33, By Capt[ai]n T. Elwon & Lieu[tenan]t H. N. Pinching, and completed in 1833 and 1834 by Com[man]der R. Moresby, Indian Navy. T.G. Carless Lieu[tenan]t and Draughts[ma]n I.N.

      London, John Walker, Geographer to the Honourable East India Company, August 1st 1836 [but 1850]. - Engraved sea chart on two sheets, numerous soundings and a few coastal profiles, tracks of the Ship Palinurus, many place names in Arabic and English, watermarked 'J. Watman 1850', a few minor tears to margins. Large and detailed chart of the southern part of the Red Sea. The survey was carried out by Commander Robert Moresby aboard the 'Palinurus' a ship of the newly formed Indian Navy (formerly the Bombay Marine). The chart was held in such great esteem at the time that Richard Burton mentions it in his work 'First Footsteps in East Africa' (1856), in which he quotes from the 'Quarterly Review' (No. cxxix. Dec. 1839): In five years, the admirable maps of that coral-bound gulf - the Red Sea - were complete: the terrors of the navigation had given place to the confidence inspired by excellent surveys. In 1829 the Thetis of ten guns, under Commander Robert Moresby, convoyed the first coal ship up the Red Sea, of the coasts of which this skilful and enterprising seaman made a cursory survey, from which emanated the subsequent trigonometrical operations which form our present maps. Two ships were employed, the 'Benares' and 'Palinurus', the former under Commander Elwon, the latter under Commander Moresby. It remained, however, for the latter officer to complete the work. Some idea may be formed of the perils these officers and men went through, when we state the 'Benares' was forty-two times aground. He goes on to quote: The beautiful maps of the Red Sea, drafted by the late Commodore Carless, then a lieutenant, will ever remain permanent monuments of Indian Naval Science, and the daring of its officers and men.

These volumes consist of Russian state papers that were published by David Urquhart, who was serving as a diplomat for the United Kingdom in the court of the Ottoman Sultan. His outspoken anti-Russian and pro-Turkish politics eventually saw him recalled in 1837, shortly after the publication of these books. His work and writing helped establish the relationship between Britain and the Ottoman Empire, contributing to their alliance in the Crimean War in the 1850s. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
