        French Manual for Naval Signals, Entitled "Manuel pour la navigation en escadre." [Manual for Navigation in a Squadron], With Manuscript Notes and Handcoloured Drawings

      Toulon: L. Laurent, 1836. Printed at the military port. 8vo. 136 pages plus 7 pages of table, and numerous in-text diagrams. Meticulous manuscript notes, 12 pages, are found the rear of volume, and, forming a lovely frontis, a manuscript chart of hand coloured flags pertaining to a ship and its country of origin. All text in French. Publisher's original black leather binding, titled and tooled in gilt to spine. Wear to extremities, otherwise very good condition, internally clean and bright. A scarce volume, none found on Worldcat, nor the National Library of France. Only one copy found in Paris, in the library of the Marine Museum of France, 'Musée national de la Marine.' This volume predates the Battle of Veracruz by two years, for which the author is best known. Detailed instructional manual for use only by officers of the French navy, with chapters on utilizing the wind and sails, use of topsails, manoeuvring and positioning vessels, the order of battle, a chase at sea, important signals, rules for engagement and combat, firing on the enemy, the construction of a 'cabluromètre' - an instrument which measures distances in cable lengths, perils such as a fire onboard, mooring and partaking in land battles, and so forth. Evidently belonging to an astute officer in training, this volume features twelve pages of meticulous notes in manuscript, outlining various flag signals, firing signals or telegraphic signals, beautifully illustrated with hand drawn colour flags. An example is given for signalling man-over-board. Of particular interest is a chart of vessels, naming over eighty ships from several countries, with 34 hand colored flags corresponding to each. The author, Louis Eugène Maissin, was a French colonial administrator, naval officer and engineer. Maissin is known in the United States for his participation, as aide-de-camp and chief of staff to Admiral Charles Baudin in the Battle of Veracruz, 1838, and accompanying his to Texas the following year. His journal is particularly valuable. This volume, so stated within, is an extract from his 1832 publication issued by the French Ministry of the Navy "Livre des signaux et tactique navale à l'usage de la marine française" with improvements made by French Vice-Admiral Joseph-Grégoire Casy (1787-1862), naval officer of distinction and authoritative writer on the subjects within. .

        Texas

      Lexington, KY: J. Clarke & Co., 1836. 12mo. (7 x 4 1/4 inches). viii, 410pp. Hand-coloured folding map. Period cloth, original paper label on spine. (A bit worn and stained). Housed in a black morocco backed box. Scarce early Texas promotional tract, dedicated to Stephen F. Austin. 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. 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. 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. Though the 1833 Holley commands a higher price than the 1836, the 1836 is seldom offered on the rare book market and is particularly rare complete with the map. S.V. Pfeuffer, whose collection stamp is on the titlepage, was one of the most significant early collectors of Texana. He formed a legendary collection in the late 19th and early 20th century.

        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.

        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.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with One Hundred and Twenty Portraits from the Indian Gallery in the Department of War, at Washington

      Philadelphia: Edward C. Biddle, 1836 [Vol. 1], Daniel Rice and James G. Clark, 1842 [Vol. 2], Daniel Rice and James G. Clark, 1844 [Vol. 3]. 3 volumes, folio. (20 1/8 x 14 inches). 120 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Karl Bodmer, Charles Bird King, James Otto Lewis, P.Rhindesbacher and R.M.Sully, drawn on stone by A.Newsam, A. Hoffy, Ralph Trembley, Henry Dacre and others, printed and coloured by J.T. Bowen and others, vol.III with two lithographic maps and one table printed recto of one leaf, 17pp. of lithographic facsimile signatures of the original subscribers. With a very rare publisher's slip laid into vol. 2, signed in print by Edward Biddle and dated 17 October 1842, concerning the transfer of publication rights to Rice and Clark. Expertly bound to style in green morocco over period green moire cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, lettered in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. A fine set of "One of the most costly and 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, including some of the greatest American hand-coloured lithographs of the 19th century. 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 1839, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer and from 1833 Cincinnati banker, who had written extensively about the west. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures amongst the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the North American Indians. The work is now famous for its colour plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors and squaws of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates) or worked up by King from the watercolours of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. All but four of the original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865 so their appearance in this work preserves what is probably the best likeness of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to date, and its publishing history is extremely complex. The title pages give an indication of issue and are relatively simple: volume I, first issue was by Edward C. Biddle and is dated 1836 (present copy) or more usually 1837, the second issue Frederick W. Greenough with the date 1838, and the third issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark dated 1842. Volume II, first issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838 and the second issue by Rice & Clark and dated 1842 (present copy). Volume III, first issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1844. BAL 6934; Bennett p.79; Field 992; Howes M129; Lipperhiede Mc4; Reese Stamped With A National Character 24; Sabin 43410a; Servies 2150

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.

        SKETCHES BY "BOZ,

      1836. In Two Volumes. Illustrations by George Cruikshank. London: John Macrone, 1836. Original dark green cloth. First Edition of Charles Dickens's first book. These 37 "sketches of every-day life and every-day people" appeared in various periodicals during the years 1833-1836, and then were collected in book form, as here in two volumes, in February 1836. There are eight plates by George Cruikshank in each volume. A "Second Series" of SKETCHES BY BOZ, 21 additional pieces, was published by Macrone in one volume in December 1836 (though dated 1837). Later in 1837 John Macrone died at the age of 28, and Chapman & Hall obtained the copyright to all these sketches; they proceeded to publish both series in twenty serial parts between 1837 and 1839: thus SKETCHES BY BOZ is one of only two Dickens works (OLIVER TWIST being the other) where book publication preceded serial part publication.~This is a very good set, still in the original horizontal leaf-patterned dark green cloth; there is some wear along the spine edges of Vol II, and a few minor cover marks, but this is an attractive set. There is less than the usual amount of browning in the margins of the plates. Carr (UTexas) B3; Podeschi (Yale) A2; Smith I pp 1-7.

        Sketches in New Brunswick, taken principally with the intention of shewing the Nature, and description of the Land in the Tract Purchased by the New Brunswick & Nova Scotia Land-Company, in the year 1833; and of illustrating the operations of the Association during the Years 1834, & 1835

      London: Day & Haghe for Ackermann & Co, 1836. Large quarto. (14 1/2 x 10 inches). 4pp. letterpress text. Lithographed title, 12 lithographed plates after Kay (6), Harry (4), Kay and Harry (1) and E.N.Kendall (1), printed by Day & Haghe. Original upper wrapper. Each leaf separately window- mounted and tipped onto a backing board, the 16 mounted leaves contained within a single limp cloth portfolio, all within a single green straight- grained morocco-backed cloth box, titled in gilt on spine. A fascinating and rare work, setting out, in words and fine lithographed views, the details of the founding of a township. The actions and scenes took place in New Brunswick, Canada in 1833 to 1835 but they can be taken to represent similar events in wilderness areas across the sub-continent of North America during the whole period of European settlement. The work would have been printed in severely limited numbers, and (according to Abbey) almost certainly for private circulation, presumably to the more important members of the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Land-Company. The artists all clearly had some technical training, and when the plates are viewed in conjunction with the text a clear view is presented of the series of events leading to the successful founding of a settlement. The town of Stanley (named after the Colonial Secretary Lord Stanley) was founded in 1834, the site having been already chosen by the surveying party, which arrived in the area in July 1833. One of the first tasks was the building of a saw-mill, powered by damming the river Nashwaak, this and other work was overseen for the first season by E.N.Kendall (a Royal Naval officer and the artist of plate number 2). The ground was then cleared in preparation for building. By July 1835 houses were being completed, a large acreage of ground cleared, and the area was beginning to look like an established settlement. All this is documented in this work. The township flourishes today and according to information on its website page "The village is located approximately 50 kilometres north of Fredericton. It is nestled around the hills on the banks of the picturesque Nashwaak River… Stanley was founded to act as a depot of supply and center of social life for the homesteaders in the Upper Nashwaak Valley. The majority came from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England [according to a gazetteer published in 1856 the population had by then risen to 737, but]… all shared in the toil of hacking out an existence in this wilderness" Abbey Travel 623 (coloured copy); Lande Collection Cat (1965) 2035; Sabin 81551; TPL 1907

        A Series of Lithographic Drawings of Sydney and its Environs

      Sydney,: J.G. Austin,, 1836.. Oblong quarto, eight lithographed plates; stab-sewn in printed yellow titling-wrapper with a later back wrapper; a fine copy preserved in a cloth case. A very desirable set of Austin's famous but extremely rare Sydney views, among the earliest lithographic views to have been published in the colony.In April 1836 Austin began work on his series of views of Sydney and its surroundings based on original drawings by the painter Robert Russell. Although he originally planned a series of twenty-four, just sixteen such views had been published by the end of 1836 and the series was halted by his death in 1837.Austin prepared the views using the relatively new method of lithography. The first lithographic press to arrived in the colony had been brought out by Governor Brisbane in the early 1820s for his astronomical work at the Parramatta Observatory. It did not see much use, but was discovered by Augustus Earle who began to make prints from it in the late 1820s, and ultimately owned it. (As Butler points out, another press may have arrived in the colony by 1828 as the surveyor Bemi produced some maps while Thomas Mitchell, the Surveyor-General, produced a few images). Earle failed to find a buyer for the press on his departure in 1828, so this was very likely the press that by 1834 was in use by the printmaker and publisher J.G. Austin shortly after his arrival in Sydney. Not long afterwards Austin formed a partnership with William Fernyhough, draughtsman and lithographer.The publishing history of Austin's views is poorly recorded. In total, 16 plates were issued in four parts in 1836. The following year, a "collected" edition appeared, published over Austin's 12 Bridge Street address. However, no full set of this collected edition appears to be recorded, and it appears that Austin issued the series in different configurations according to what plates he had available. Thus, Ferguson notes only two copies, a set in the Mitchell Library with 12 plates from the series, and a second set in the National Library with seven plates from the series separately mounted.

        Pehriska-Ruhpa... in the Costume of the Dog Danse

      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

        Astoria, or Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains

      First Edition, First State by Carey, Lea, & Blanchard, Philadelphia: 1836. 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. (BAL 10148, Graff 2158, Sabin 35129) Reportedly only 4,000 copies of the first edition were printed. A very handsome set of a unique and scarce account of the earliest settlement of the Pacific Northwest.

        Quebec from Point Levi

      Quebec: 1836-1842. Watercolour over pencil with scratching out and gum arabic, inscribed in pencil on verso. 19th century water gilt frame. 16 3/4 x 22 3/4 inches. A spectacular 19th century watercolour view of Quebec from across the St. Lawrence River by a noted military artist. Philip J. Bainbrigge (1817-1881), son of General Sir Philip Bainbrigge (1786-1862), was born at Lichfield, Staffordshire, on January 16, 1817. He entered the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich in 1830 and graduated in 1833. Requesting a posting abroad, Bainbrigge "arrived in Canada on board the Arab transport on June 25, 1836, in time to take part in the military operations along the Richelieu RIver and at St. Eustache during the Rebellions of 1837-8. Bainbrigge travelled widely in Upper and Lower Canada and the Maritimes, reporting on fortifications and other defensive measures. He was assigned oin special survey duty concerning the Maine- New Brunswick boundary dispute and was acting adjutant from 1841 until his return to England August 4, 1842" (Cooke). "Like many British officer- painters, Bainbrigge received his artistic training at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. There, he was instructed in the proper use of perspective and in the handling of light and shade, and he employed these techniques with an ease and spontaneity well-suited to the principles of landscape painting. His rather individual style, while in accordance with the artistic trends of the time, resulted in watercolours that are quite distinctive. A thematic analysis of Bainbrigge's work reveals a definite predilection for depicting landscapes - either in summer or winter - into which he would work whatever section of the city he could see from his vantage point. His palette thus consisted of a range of natural colours, such as browns, reds and dark greens, which he applied in varying degrees of thickness" (Graham). The Public Archives Canada holds the principal collection of works by Bainbrigge, including approximately 170 watercolours. Two Bainbrigge watercolours are cited in the catalogue of the Samuel Collection (Jefferys 450 and 460), including a view of Quebec from the Citadel on the opposite shore from the present watercolour, with two more in the Coverdale Collection (Cooke 35 and 36) and three in the Royal Ontario Museum (Allodi 57-59). Other holdings include the National Gallery of Canada (no. 28043).

        Harlequin Duck [Pl. CCXCVII]

      London: 1836. Drawn from nature by J.J. Audubon, engraved, printed and colored by Robert Havell, 1836. Watermarked: " J. Whatman 1836". 25 x 38 inches. From the first edition of "Birds of America" The drawings for the Harlequin Ducks were done by Audubon and his son, John Woodhouse, near Eastport, Maine. The two birds on the right of the image (2. Female, on tope, and 3. Young Male, Third Year) were drawn by the younger Audubon and the Old Male on the left was drawn by John James. The Harlequin Duck is aptly named both because of its multi-colored feathers but also for its surprising and unusual ways, like the clownish and mischievious Harlequin of the Commedia dell' Arte. Its love of the turbulent waters around Maine, Nova Scotia and Labrador is an example of character not typical of ducks. They are found in the northwest and northeast of the United States and occasionally in the Great lakes. They are also inhabitants of Iceland.

        MUSEE ROYAL DE NAPLES, peintures, bronzes et statues erotiques du Cabinet Secret, avec leur explications par?

      Ledoux 1836 in-folio, pp. XXX, (4), 159, (2), bella leg. m. tela coeva con fregi e tit. oro al d. Con 60 tavv. raff. oggetti d'arte e dipinti con scene erotiche e licenzione, soprattutto falliche, conservati al Museo di Napoli. Nel tit. le tavv. sono annunciate a colori ma la coloritura era probabilmente eseguita a mano con acquarellatura successiva e non colorate in lastra: infatti le nostre sono in bianco e nero al naturale. Il curatore della raccolta (1799-1853) fu incaricato dell'opera dall'Ambasciata di Francia. Gli oggetti, per la loro oscenità, furono a lungo tenuti nascosti fino al 1819 quando Francesco I venne in visita al Museo e propose di creare una sala "riservata". Tra i pezzi più noti qui riprodotti il gruppo marmoreo di Pan e capra proveniente da Ercolano. Bell'esempl. [326]
