        Opera ad Parisiensem Fabrotianem Editionem. 13 vols. in 12 books.

      1836. Cujas, Jacques [1522-1590]. Fabrot, Charles Annibal [1580-1659], Editor. Opera ad Parisiensem Fabrotianam Editionem Diligentissime Exacta in Tomos XIII. Distributa Auctiora Atque Emendatiora. Prati: Ex Officina Fratr. Giachetti, 1836-1844. Thirteen volumes in twelve books. Octavo (7-1/2" x 10"). Contemporary three-quarter vellum over marbled boards, red and black calf lettering pieces to spines. Light soiling and some rubbing, chipping to edges of some lettering pieces. Occasional toning, light browning and foxing. Later owner signatures and bookplates to front endleaves, interiors otherwise clean. * Reissue of an edition first published in 1658 containing all editions and original works. Cujas, a professor of law at the universities of Cahors, Bourges, Valencia and Turin, was the preeminent authority on Roman law in his day and one of its most important scholars. He recovered and published the Codex Theodosianus and the Basilica and published several commentaries and editions. "He is the outstanding representative of humanism in Roman law. The glossators had studied Roman law as it stood at Justinian's death and the commentators, or Bartolists, had used their comprehensive knowledge of Justinian acquired by the glossators as the basis of a systematic science, but as their was practical they introduced non-Roman elements into the civil law and adapted it to contemporary needs. The school of Cujas viewed the Roman texts as historical documents, interpreting them in the full setting of ancient history and literature. A consummate master of jurisprudence, philology and history, Cujas may claim to be the greatest legal scholar of all time" (Zulueta). Fabrot was a French jurist who continued the work of Cujas and edited the first complete edition of the Basilica. His collected-works edition of Cujas was reissued several times. OCLC locates 2 copies of this edition, neither in North America. KVK locates 5 copies, 1 in North America at the National Library of Canada. 1 other copy located at Harvard Law School. This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue..

Called to the bar of Upper Canada, 1833. Member of the Assembly, 1835-1837. Appointed vice-chancellor of the Court of Equity. Died in Toronto, 1854. Sir Francis Bond HEAD. In December 1835 Francis Bond Head was named to succeed Sir John Colborne as lieutenant governor of Upper Canada. Head after appointing three reformers to the Executive Council only have them quit and then dissolved the Assembly and calling an election in 1836 which he directly directly participated in aggressively canvasing for the Tories. "Head's appeal was direct and simple: a vote for the Conservatives [Tories] was a vote for loyalty, order and prosperity. A vote for the Reformers represented only disloyalty and the menace of "outside intervention." He never explained what this might be, but he likely meant either American or French Canadian interference. In the name of the loyal militia he taunted, "Let them come, if they dare!" Head's fear-mongering electioneering won the day: Tories elected 44; Reformers elected 18. Head had also threatened the loss of the basic necessities of life when he repeatedly reminded the electors that "if you dispute with me you will only quarrel with your bread and butter." While he may not have "stolen the election" his unprecedented involvement in the political process and his uncompromising hostility towards the Reformers resulted in a rift and a rage in the province that led directly to the Rebellion of 1837." quoted from Upper Canada History web site.

        The Penny Mechanic. A Magazine of the Arts and Sciences. Illustrated by Mr. G. H. Wall

      London: Published by D. A. Doudney, at the Holloway Press; [and G.] Berger, 1836-43. 9 annual volumes of weekly issues (bound as 5), each number with a wood engraving on the front, and occasional illustrations and diagrams in the text, prefaces and annual title-pages to most years, additional engraved frontispieces to three annual vols., engraved frontispiece on yellow paper facing an advertisement ('Permit me to introduce to your notice the Penny Mechanic' on a scroll held by a bespectacled gentleman doffing his top hat), 8vo, contemporary purple roan-backed drab boards, neatly rebacked, very good. A rare complete run (but see below) of a very valuable periodical, which, although directed to the working classes and their practical concerns, does not neglect the latest developments in science and technology, notably advances in electrical science, photography and the railways; with a great deal of miscellaneous information as well, including notices of lectures being given in London at various literary and scientific societies and institutions. This run corresponds to the BL and Bodley holdings; a smallish number of fragmentary runs also appear in COPAC; however, the last issue of 1843 appears not to have been the final number: see the bound volume presented to the Revd.

        Woman of the Snake Tribe/Woman of the Cree Tribe

      Karl BodmerIllustrated plate from Travels in the Interior of North AmericaLondon, Paris, Coblenz: 1836-1843Hand-colored aquatint engravingPaper size approximately 17 1/2? x 22 1/2?35? x 28 1/2? framedKarl 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?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?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 ?Yellowstone,? stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, ?Assiniboin,? 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?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?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?s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian?s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and be

      Concord, N.H.: William White. Boston: Benjamin B. Mussey, 1836. Second (and best) edition. 12mo. Without the map (not found in all copies) and LACKING the frontispiece; 2 full-page wood-engravings (p.172; and p. 178 of shooting deer). iv, [5]-380pp. Original cloth, title "Texas" in gilt on spine beneath a design of Texas flag, stamped with motto "Independence", printed upside down. Occasional stains to text, overall very good. Signed Nicholas Lincoln on the flyleaf. Bookplate of James Torr Harmer. Howes P74; Graff 3183; Phillips, Sporting Books, p. 286; Sabin 58643; Jenkins, Basic Texas 159; Streeter Texas 1172a . Written on the eve of the Texas Revolution, Parker's account of his travels there is greatly valued as of the earliest accounts of Texas written in English. The son of a prominent New Hampshire Senator, Parker was 43 when he set out on his journey, and spent over a month in Texas, visiting San Augustine, Nacogdoches, Hall's Ferry on the Brazos River, San Antonio ("like all Spanish towns, is composed of houses built of logs and mud, and makes a squalid appearance") San Felipe, Columbia, Brazoria, and Velasco. He is particularly observant of the land and its qualities (and abundance!), the peculiar fauna, the people, and the prospects there for emigrants, particularly Northern emigrants; e.g.,"neither Galveston Bay nor the flat country all along the seacoast, is the place for a northern man. It is too much infested with alligators, mocassan [sic] snakes, and moschetoes." The author's intelligent remarks on slavery, and his prescient observations on the growing conflict between the Anglo and Spanish heritage of the state have been remarked by others. Further, this second edition is extremely important, as it is the first to contain an additional chapter on the "Texian Revolution."

Dos volúmenes en 4to.; 2 hs., 394 pp. + 2 hs., 374 pp., y 5 láminas litográficas aparte, con planos de prisiones norteamericanas, tres de ellos plegados. Encuadernación moderna en media tela. Un hito en la Historia de las Ideas sobre el Tratamiento Penitenciario. Tocqueville y Beaumont, amigos y ambos magistrados en Versailles, obtuvieron del Ministro Montalivet el encargo de una Misión para estudiar el sistema penitenciario en Estados Unidos, donde estuvieron durante dieciocho meses, publicando a su regreso en 1833 ésta obra que marca las bases para una reforma radical de la organización de las prisiones, tanto en el aspecto sociológico y filosófico como en las cuestiones jurídicas y financieras ligadas a las mismas. El sistema penitenciario norteamericano, creado como tal en 1786, en Pennsylvania, bajo la influencia directa de los medios cuáqueros, planteaba el aislamiento absoluto, en contraposición a la promiscuidad, y a partir de 1823 el trabajo colectivo y silencioso durante el día. El fructífero viaje a Estados Unidos permitió a Tocqueville la observación «sur place» del funcionamiento de la democracia en el único pais con régimen republicano. En 1835 aparecería la primera edición de «De la Démocratie en Amérique».

      Printed and Published by Adam Waldie,, Philadelphia: 1836 - Steel engraved plate of Frederick Marryat, drawn by Behnes, engraved by Lawson, precedes text. Flint's long letter (11 columns, in small type) is dated Alexandria, La., April 21, 1835, and apparently not known to Kirkpatrick who made no reference to it in his biography of Flint [per Graff]. The cited references make mention of a separate 12mo edition of this work, and of which we find an occasional record, the last being in 1973. Rare. Marryat is represented with The NAVAL ANNUAL, in addition to the engraving. In 'Belles Lettres' is found, JAPHET In SEARCH Of A FATHER. Miss Baillie [no doubt, unknowingly] contributes a number of dramatic pieces, all but two asserted to be original publications, and which, by appearing herein, constitute their first US appearance. "Belles Lettres" also publishes, for the first time, journal entries from an officer of the U. S. S. PEACOCK, which was serving, at the time, in the Far East. The editor introduces his correspondent by saying he begins by "giving the details of the awful disaster which befell the Peacock, from which she escaped almost by a miracle."

        The Philadelphia Water Works by Nicolino Calyo (1799-1884)

      1836 - NICOLINO CALYO (1799-1884) The Philadelphia Water Works Gouache on paper, 44 1/4x59 1/2 in. Inscribed (on the back, twice), Fairmont Executed 1835-36 EXHIBITED: Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania (n.d.); Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Fairmount Waterworks 1988, p. 29 illus. in color; p. 44 checklist EX COLL.: [Harry Stone, New York]; [Hirschl and Adler Galleries, New York, by 1984]; to corporate collection, until the present Nicolino Calyo's career reflects a restless spirit of enterprise and adventure. Descended in the line of the Viscontes di Calyo of Calabria, the artist was the son of a Neapolitan army officer. (See the brief biographical sketch by Kathleen Foster, prefacing catalogue entry no. 257 in Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia: Three Centuries of American Art, exhib. cat., [1976], pp. 299-301.) Calyo received formal training in art at the Naples Academy. His career took shape amidst the backdrop of the political turbulence of early nineteenth century Italy, Spain, and France. He fled Naples after choosing the losing side of struggles of 1820-21, and, by 1829 was part of an Italian exile community in Malta. This was the keynote of a peripatetic life that saw the artist travel through Europe, to America, to Europe again, and back to America. Paradoxically, Calyo's stock-in-trade was close observation of people and places, meticulously rendered in the precise topographical tradition of his fellow countrymen, Antonio Canale (called Canaletto) and Francesco Guardi. In search of artistic opportunity and in pursuit of a living, Calyo left Malta, and, by 1834, was on the opposite side of the great Atlantic Ocean, in Baltimore, Maryland. He advertised his skills in the April 16, 1835, edition of the Baltimore American, offering "remarkable views executed from drawings taken on the spot by himself, . in which no pains or any resource of his art has been neglected, to render them accurate in every particular" (as quoted in The Art Gallery and The Gallery of the School of Architecture, University of Maryland, College Park, 350 Years of Art & Architecture in Maryland [1984], p. 35). Favoring gouache on paper as his medium, Calyo rendered faithful visual images of familiar locales executed with a degree of skill and polish that was second nature for European academically-trained artists. Indeed, it was the search for this graceful fluency that made American artists eager to travel to Europe and that led American patrons to seek out the works of ambitious newcomers. On June 16, 1835, the Baltimore Republican reported that Calyo was on his way north to Philadelphia and New York to paint views of those cities. Calyo arrived in New York just in time to witness the great fire of December 1835, which destroyed much of the downtown business district. He sketched the fire as it burned, producing a series of gouache images that combined his sophisticated European painting style with the truth and urgency of on-the-spot observation. Two of his images were given broad currency when they were reproduced in aquatint by William James Bennett. The New-York Historical Society owns two large Calyo gouaches of the fire. From 1838 until 1855, Calyo listed himself in New York City directories, as a painter, as a portrait painter, as an art instructor, and in partnership with his sons, John (1818-1893) and later, the considerably younger Hannibal (1835-1883). Between 1847 and 1852 Calyo exhibited scenes from the Mexican War and a panorama of the Connecticut River in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and New Orleans. He spent some time in Spain as court painter to Queen Maria Cristina, the result of his continuing European connections, but by 1874 was back in America, where he remained until his death. Between 1819 and 1822 the city of Philadelphia dammed the Schuylkill River to build the Fairmount Water Works, intended to insure a clean water supply to the growing town. In 1844, the municipality began to

        Astoria, or Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains

      Carey, Lea, & Blanchard Philadelphia 1836. First Edition, First State Both volumes of this two volume set are in good to very good- condition although re-backed retaining the publisher's original green-brown, patterned cloth covered boards and the gilt text stamped back strips. The original end papers were also retained. The new spine backing is in a dark green cloth which does not match the original materials but does supply each volume with added strength. (The original cloth is embossed with a floral pattern on "brown T-like cloth" as noted as "Cloth C" by Jacob Blanck in his Bibliography of American Literature.) (BAL 10148) The original cloth at the lower fore edges of the boards is rubbed through in small areas as are the upper fore edges of the boards. As is typically seen, the end papers for both volumes are foxed and there is general foxing to many of the pages throughout the text blocks. Both books are protected within two fabric covered chemises which are contained within an elegant 1/2 dark green leather and cloth covered slip case with gilt lettering on the boxed end. The boxed end is shaped as a double convex with raised spines so that it appears as two volumes with gilt text stamping in the compartments. The fold-out map of the routes of Hunt & Sturart contained in volume two is in very good condition with very slight age toning and with two short closed tears: one 1 1/2" long at the first fold and the second of 1/2" long at the edge where it is tipped-in. with only one short 1" closed tear at one of the folds and a 2" long closed tear near the edge which is tipped-into the binding. Wright Howes in his bibliography U.S.Iana (I-81) states that this is the "Classic account of the first American attempt at settlement on the Pacific coast, 1811, ..including the earliest extended relation of Wilson P. Hunt's overland expedition from St. Louis to that settlement." Irving was commissioned by John Jacob Astor to write the account of his company's effort to create a settlement in what is now Oregon.
