        Long-Tailed Duck [Oldsquaw] [Pl. 312]

      London: 1836. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell, 1836, paper watermarked "J. Whatman / 1836". 25 7/8 x 39 1/4 inches. From the first edition of "The Birds of America." A fine image contrasting the indolence of the two drakes (one in summer and one in winter plumage) as they bask contentedly on the rocks, with the industry of the female Oldsquaw, diligently scouring the water surface for food, as her three young hurry along beside her, anxious not to stray too far from the protection she affords. One drake goes no further then opening an eye to watch the passing scene, the second raises himself from the basking position, and turns his head for a better view. "Owing to their reiterated cries these birds are named 'Noisy Ducks;' but they have various appellations, among others those of 'Old Wives,' and 'Old Squaws.' Although like all sea-ducks, 'Old Wife' swims deeply, it moves with a grace and celerity, which, if not superior to those of any of its tribe, are at least equal; and when the weather is rough, and the waters agitated, it raises its tail in the same manner as the Ruddy Duck and Pintail. When advancing in smooth water, its speed is such as to cause a considerable swell before it, such as sea-faring persons usually call a 'bone.' Like all others of its tribe, it also prefers swimming against both wind and tide, as then it can sooner take wing if necessary. In calm and pleasant is fond of throwing its body almost over, and of pluming itself in that position" (J. J. Audubon, Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. VI, p.381). "'Long-tailed Duck,' the name applied in England to this smart looking sea duck, was the name Audubon used. Oldsquaw, the colorful North American name, derived from local lore, refers to the bird's talkative habits...Another phonetically derived name for it was 'south-southerly.' Oldsquaws are circumpolar, ranging throughout the arctic and sub-arctic regions of both the New World and the Old, resorting to tundra ponds to raise their families. In winter, except for the Great Lakes...they seem to prefer the salt water of the Atlantic and Pacific. They are easily recognized, in flight over the sea, by their white bodies and totally dark wings, the only ducks so patterned" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America, London: 1981, no. 73). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.163.

A large, handsomely engraved chart of the Gulf of Mexico south of Cuba and including all of the Caribbean Islands, the eastern coast of Central America and the northern coast of South America John William Norie was the leading chartmaker and writer on navigation of his time. Born in London, he attached himself to William Heather at an early age and by the age of 25 was making charts independently. William Heather ran a shop for navigators known as the Naval Academy and the Naval Warehouse. (Dickens later used the Naval Warehouse in Dombey and Son). It sold nautical instruments, sea charts, guides and instructional books on navigation. By 1815, Heather had retired, and Norie was in command. His accomplishments were considerable and lasting, including several atlases of sea charts:Complete West India Pilot (first published in 1828), from which this chart comes; East India Pilot (1816); North Sea & Baltic Pilot (1824); Complete North America and United States Pilot (1825); as well as general works on navigation, most notably The Epitome of Practical Navigation (1805), which was the standard work throughout the 19th century. This highly detailed, large chart shows all of Jamaica, Santo Domingo, all of the Caribbean Islands, the north coast of South America and the east coast of Central America. It includes inset charts of Jamaica, Mobile Bay (Alabama), Vera Cruz and Tampico.

        Wesh Cubb or the Sweet: A Chippeway Chief

      E.C. Biddle Philadelphia: E.C. Biddle, 1836. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.5" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wesh Cubb was known for his leadership and prowess as a warrior but also for his son, a notorious A-go-kwa, an Indian homosexual. Minor aging along edges, light scattered foxing. Minor offsetting. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Artisans and Machinery: The Moral and Physical Condition of the Manufacturing Population Considered with Reference to Mechanical Substitutes for Human Labour,

      First Edition, xv, 399, [1]pp + 12pp publisher's catalogue, octavo, original gilt lettered diced cloth, carefully rebacked to match original, an excellent copy, very rare, with some interesting and informed pencilled annotations and notes, London, John W. Parker, 1836. *Goldsmith 29628. In this key book on the subject, Gaskell gives a clear, comprehensive and often heartbreaking idea of the appalling living conditions which many mill workers were forced to endure. Gaskell was a doctor who worked amongst the labouring population (he is named as a Surgeon on the title-page). Those who worked in such situations were often shocked by the conditions they encountered. Yet, by and large, they did not give vent to their feelings in emotional outbursts against industrial capitalism. In this they differed from contemporaries like Richard Oastler or William Cobbett, men confused and perplexed by industrialization who reacted by striking out blindly against it. Works like C. T. Thackrah's Effects of Arts, Trades and Professions on Health and Longevity, J. P. Kay's Moral and Physical Condition of the Working Classes or Peter Gaskell's Artisans and Machinery were not mere tirades against the industrial system but attempts to investigate the lives of the urban working classes and to isolate evils by enquiry and experiment. Gaskell gave no support to the view that the coming of the factories had coincided with the economic degradation of the workers. On the contrary, he was quite clear that, apart from the effect on the hand-loom weavers, it had resulted in abundant material progress and that the wages of cotton operatives, "with proper economy and forethought, would enable them to live comfortably, nay, in comparative luxury." It was the moral degradation of the worker that worried Gaskell. He condemned factories for the vice which he thought they had been instrumental in producing through causing the operatives to lose their "independence." Children were forced to spend their most impressionable years amid surroundings of the utmost immorality and degradation, and he painted a truly appalling picture. Even so, and in spite of Gaskell regarding factory labor in general as "singularly unfitted for children," he could not bring himself to advocate the abolition of child labour simply because anything else available to the working classes was actually even worse. "The employment of children in manufactories," he wrote, "ought not to be looked upon as an evil, till the present moral and domestic habits of the population are completely re-organised. So long as home education is not found for them, and they are left to live as savages, they are to some extent better situated when engaged in light labour, and the labour generally is light which falls to their share." It was the home life of children, prior to their factory days, which primarily led to such physical degeneracy as there was, and Gaskell emphasized this view.

"The heyday of engraving on steel was the second quarter of the nineteenth century. . . . The indefatigable Bartlett was the chief producer of volumes of steel-engraved views. For many years he ranged through two continents making or collecting drawings. . . . Collectors not seeking representations of familiar scenes will probably find the grandeur of his Swiss subjects most appealing" (Ray, Illustrator & the Book in England, pp. 40-42). Switzerland is one of the many illustrated travel books produced by Bartlett in collaboration with his friend and fellow traveller Dr. William Beattie; their works enjoyed great popularity in the 19th century.
