        [Auvergne] Itinéraire de Clermont au Puy de Dome, ou description de cette montagne et de la Vallée de Royat et Fontanat; seconde edition. [AND] two other papers on the geology of Auvergne, by A. C. P. F. Von Lasaulx, and by J. B. Bouillet, bound in.

      Paris, J. B. Baillière, 1836. 8vo (21.2 x 13.3 cm). vi, 102 pp. Early 20th century half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised bands and gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l In this work the author describes the most significant peak in Central France, the extinct volcano Puy-de-Dome, and the geologically interesting surroundings. The work was both available separately, and as part of a series, "Description pittoresque de l'Auvergne, publiée par livraisons indépendantes...". The half-title indicates the series, the half-title verso explains that the papers are in fact "independant", and the title is for this part alone. ADDED in the rear are two near-contemporary papers with roughly the same subject: A. [C. P. F.] Von Lasaulx, “Etudes pétrographiques sur les roches volcaniques de l'Auvergne, suivies d'une note sur les roches désignées sous le nom d'hémithrène et sur quelques autres du plateau gneisso-granitique du département du Puy-de-Dôme, et de quelques autres notes. Traduites par F. Gonnard” (Clermont-Ferrand, Ferdinand Thibaud, 1875). 8vo. 224 pp., two engraved plates of which one large, double-folded. This is fine work by the German geologist and petrologist Arnold Constantin Peter Franz von Lasaulx (1839-1886), professor of geology and mineralogy at the university of Bonn, on the mineralogy of the Massif Central in central France. Apparently Von Lasaulx wrote the work in German and it was published piecemeal between 1868 and 1871 as "Petrographische Studien an den vulkanischen Gesteinen der Auvergne". [AND] J. B. Bouillet “Topographie mineralogique du département du Puy-de-Dome. Suivie d'un dictionnaire oryctognostique, d'une liste des noms des roches et minéraux, d'un tableau des hauteurs des montagnes, villes, villages et hameaux du même département, et d'un tableau comparatif de cet hauteurs. Séconde édition.” (Clermont-Ferrand, Hubler, Bayle et Dubos, 1854. 8vo. vii, 244 pp.). The latter work is very interesting from a geographical point of view too. In 1830, Lecoq and Bouillet co-authored another important paper on the region, "Vues et coupes...Puy-de-Dome" (Ward & Carozzi 1345). Lecoq's paper slightly spotted, mostly in the margins; the Von Lasaulx work with an age-toned and partly spotted title page, the other two papers otherwise near entirely clean. All three are uncommon to rare. A neatly bound set.

Différentes expériences sur la reproduction des nerfs et la description d'un nouveau canal de l'oeil.Florence, (without publisher), 1781. 2 volumes. 4to. With 10 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cole library 1836; Garrison, Hist. neurology, pp. 106-107, 124; Sabin 24988. A very good copy of "the starting point of modern investigations of serpent venoms." (Garrison). This work contains many of the outstanding discoveries made by the Italian physiologist and anatomist Felice Fontana (1730-1805), professor at the University of Pisa. It mainly describes experiments on viper venom and other poisons like the poison called ticunas by American Indians, the European cherry laurel tree (Prunus laurocerasus), tobacco oil, etc. Fontana also here for the first time publishes his letter describing "Fontana's canal," an important ophthalmological discovery. The work is also important in the field of neurology, since it contains Fontana's observations on the structure and reproduction of nerves, with the first illustrations ever of nerves as seen with a microscope. Some occasional minor spots, bindings rubbed, both volumes with slightly damaged hinges. Very good set of a very important work on serpent venoms and other poisons.

        Payta Kootha A Shawanee Warrior

      E. C. Biddle, Philadephia 1836 - Hand-coloured lithograph after Charles Bird King, printed by Lehman & Duval. 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. Payta Kootha, Flying Clouds, was a Shawnee chief. He signed several treaties including the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. His last treaty was signed in 1825 by which the Shawnee surrendered all claim to land east of the Mississippi. An early impression printed by Lehman & Duval and published by Edward Biddle. 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 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 making a record of a rapidly disappearing culture.

        600 pages of autograph manuscripts, with 12 watercolors and drawings on lung anatomy and physiology.

      Paris, circa 1836-1842. Circa 600 Pages of Unpublished Autograph Manuscripts on the Anatomy and Physiology of the Lungs and the Physiology of Respiration, with Twelve Watercolor Paintings by Albert Jacquemart, from an Almost Completely Undocumented Period in Bazin's LifeBazin, Antoine-Pierre-Ernest (1807-78). A collection of autograph manuscripts, drawings and watercolor paintings on the anatomy and physiology of the lungs and the physiology of respiration, as listed below. [Paris, 1836-c. 1842] Various sizes. 1 ms. in original wrappers, torn & chipped; the remaining mss. in original unbound state, some soiling and browning, edges of some leaves a little frayed, a few marginal tears. 5 of the watercolors mounted; the remainder loose. Enclosed in two cloth drop-back boxes. Bazin, the son and grandson of physicians, was born in 1807 in the small town of St. Brice-sous-Bois. He studied medicine in Paris, where he impressed everyone with his brilliance: "named successively a hospital extern and intern, he was taught by Dupuytren, Honore, Rostan, Bricheteau, Delarocque, Maury, Biett, and crowned his internship by obtaining the gold medal at the end of a remarkable examination" (Baudot, p. 176). He received his doctorate in medicine in 1834 with a thesis entitled Recherches sur les lesions de poumon dans les fievres dites essentielles (Researches on lesions of the lung in "essential" fevers), and might then have begun on a career commensurate with his remarkable abilities. However, Bazin was unfortunately possessed of a difficult and overbearing personality, and his "utter lack of tact in dealing with influential colleagues" (Besnier, quoted in Crissy & Parrish, p. 150) caused him to passed over in the agrege examinations of 1835 and 1838, which prevented him from obtaining a teaching post in a university or lycee. To Bazin these failures were so discouraging that he abandoned all further efforts toward obtaining a teaching position, instead spending the next several years in relative poverty and obscurity, struggling to advance his medical career both in private practice and at various hospitals. Bazin also attempted during this time to found two medical periodicals-- l'Institut medical (first issue 1839) and Repertoire des etudes medicales (first issue 1848); however, both of these ventures were almost immediate failures, due largely to Bazin's lack of capital. This difficult period in Bazin's life ended in 1847, when he was prevailed upon to accept a post at the Hopital St. Louis; he remained there until his retirement at age 65, and it is there that he began the brilliant and influential dermatological studies for which he is now known. He constructed an elaborate "diathetic" system of dermatologic thought based on the idea that skin disorders were not diseases as such but only the visible manifestations of a few underlying pathological states; this theory enjoyed wide acceptance in France and Great Britain prior to the rise of the germ theory of disease in the 1870s. Bazin published over a dozen books on dermatological subjects, the most important being his influential Lecons theoriques et cliniques sur les affections cutanees de nature arthritique et dartreuse (1860); these, coupled with his great skills as a clinician and teacher, made him one of the great dermatological authorities of his age. His name survives today in the term "Bazin's disease," an alternative name for erythema induratum (see G-M 4051). Although quite prolific in the years after 1850, when his fortunes were secure, Bazin published almost nothing in the unsettled and virtually undocumented period of his life between 1835 and 1847. A search of the sources available to us, including the online databases, NUC and contemporary obituaries (see below), has turned up references only to the two failed periodicals, his agrege theses (Quels sont les caracteres distinctifs de la contagion et de l'infection [1835] and Determiner ce qu'il faut entendre par maladies lymphatiques [1838]), and two unnamed memoirs on the structure of the lung (1836) and the connection between the spinal cord and spinal nerves (1840), both of which are mentioned only in a footnote to Baudot's obituary (p. 177). However, these twelve "lost" years were a more productive period for Bazin than the record of his publications indicates--the group of unpublished manuscripts and drawings offered here, which date from between 1839 and circa 1842, show that Bazin continued to rework and expand his writings on the lung, hoping to make his name as a specialist in the anatomy and physiology of respiration. Bazin's investigations on the lung are of great interest, particularly since they date from a time when common pulmonary illnesses were beginning to be diagnosed with precision, thanks to Laennec's stethoscope (1819). This manuscript collection is made up of the following: (1) Recherches sur la structure intime du poumon de l'homme et des animaux vertebres, suivis de considerations sur les fonctions et la pathologie de cet organe (Research on the interior structure of the lung in man and vertebrates, followed by thoughts on the functions and pathology of this organ). June 3, 1839. Autograph notebook of 56 pages in folio, extensively revised by the author with erasures, pastings, notes, etc., dedicated to the history and criticism of the opinions of medical authors from antiquity to the nineteenth century, and submitted to the Institut Royal de France, whose stamp appears on the title. Also on the title is a note in the hand of noted French neurologist Marie Jean Pierre Flourens (1794-1867), a commissioner of the Institut: "Mrs. Dumeril, de Blainville, Serres, Flourens: Commissaires." In the introduction to this memoir Bazin explained the origin of his research in this way: "The desire to acquire precise information on the original seat and the development of pulmonary phthisis and asthma directed me to research on the interior structure of the lung. . . ." This and the following memoir may have been written for publication in the Memoires of the Institut; however, Bazin's name does not appear at all in the Memoires' indexes for the period 1836-57, and we have every reason to believe that it is unpublished. (2) The interior structure of the lung in man and vertebrates. Second memoir presented to the Institute. 2 undated autograph notebooks of 15 and 13 pages in folio, with corrections, pastings, etc. as above, representing two parts of the manuscript. "Commissioners Blainville, Flourens, Serres" inscribed in another hand on p. 1 of Part 2. (3) 12 watercolors (from 2 to 5 drawings per page), by Albert Jacquemart (1808-75), dated 1836, representing both gross and fine anatomical structures in the lung and other respiratory apparatus with notes and commentary by Bazin: windpipe of a gazelle injected with mercury; lung of a kestrel and a pigeon; lung of a Muscovy duck; lung of a girl who died at the Hotel-Dieu in March 1836; man, bronchial branches/tubes injected with mercury; bronchial endings of a 4-month old fetus; bronchial endings of a calf's lung; lung of an otter, etc. At least six of the drawings were prepared to illustrate the second part of Bazin's "De la structure du poumon de l'homme et des animaux vertebres" (no. 2); the drawings are referenced in marginal notes in the manuscript. Included with the Jacquemart watercolors are an unsigned watercolor and three black pencil drawings without captions. Jacquemart, a painter of flowers, also worked on the reproduction of subjects in botany, entomology, conchology, and medicine (cf. Benezit VI, p. 51). Color xeroxes of his watercolors are included with this description. (4) Recherches sur la structure intime des organes respiratoires. 40pp. in folio, unbound. Undated, but not earlier than 1841, since a bibliographical citation on the first page refers to a book published in that year. A scholarly review and critique of medical writings on the lung from antiquity to the time of writing; among the authors discussed are Aristotle, Plato, Hippocrates, Galen, Empedocles, Vesalius, Harvey, Malpighi, Willis, Ruysch, Bidloo, Duverney, Haller, John Hunter, Soemmerring and Reisseisen. (5) Breathing apparatus of the lion. Autograph manuscript of 20pp. in folio and in quarto with 5 drawings by the author in pencil and ink: posterior bronchial plexus, anastamosis of the bronchial artery with the pulmonary artery, etc. Numerous corrections by the author. In a paper folder which contains a portion of another manuscript by Bazin entitled "De la structure intime des organes respiratoires des animaux vertebres," and beginning "Il y a presque vingt cinq ans que j'ai co[mmence] cette ?tude. . . ." (It has been 25 years since I began this research. . . ). Right margin of this ms. page trimmed, affecting text. (6) A large collection of notes on lectures and dissections, in a paper folder entitled "Notes sur l'appareil respiratoire" (Notes on the respiratory apparatus). Undated, but 1842 or later. Circa 500 pages in quarto, mostly filed in 42 sub-groups, each with its own folder; there are also several loose unfiled sheets. Most of the sub-groups are devoted to authors: Aristotle, Plato, Galen, Empedocles, Harvey, Aranzio, Malpighi, Lower, Hunter, Cuvier, Laennec, Seymour, Mayo, Tiedeman, Spallanzani, Poli, Bourgery, Milne-Edwards (whom he criticizes for not having been aware of the "rather numerous preparations that I left in the comparative anatomy collections in 1839"), etc. The remaining groups contain dissection notes: procedures used on a very young human embryo; pleurisy; bird autopsies; notes on the breathing apparatus of several mammals (with some sketches). Also included in this document is the manuscript of the first lesson of a zoology course taught by Bazin. All of the materials in (6) were probably written in preparation for various lecture courses taught by Bazin during the 1840s or later; Crissey (p. 151) notes Bazin's habit of opening each year's Lecons with a caustic and contemptuous survey of the work of his predecessors.This collection is among the largest collections of autograph manuscripts by a single author on a medical subject that we have handled in 40 years of trading and it is only one to contain paintings of this quality. Some of the manuscripts described above may have been intended for publication in one or the other of Bazin's failed medical journals, both of which are extraordinarily rare: neither is cited in NUC, or in the OCLC database. Besnier, in his obituary of Bazin, stated that he knew of only one copy of Bazin's Institut medical (at the Bibliotheque nationale de France); he also noted that the later Repertoire des ?tudes medicales ceased publication after only six issues.

      Zus. 336 S., 8 bis 4. Giuseppe Valerga studierte am Albenga Seminar und an der Sapienza Universität von Rom und empfing am 17. Januar 1836 die Priesterweihe. Er war für die Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide tätig, insbesondere kümmerte er sich um die Chaldäisch-Katholische Kirche. Papst Pius IX. ernannte ihn 1847 zum Patriarchen von Jerusalem, dem einzigen katholischen Patriarchen im Osten, welcher dem römischen Ritus angehörte. Die Bischofsweihe wurde ihm am 10. Oktober 1847 durch den Pontifex selbst gespendet. Es ist überliefert dass der Papst hierbei über den gewaltigen Bart des Priesters staunte und diesbezüglich äußerte: Schon dieser Bart allein verdient eine ganz besondere Auszeichnung!. Von 1847 bis zu seinem Tode 1872 war er zudem Großmeister des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab. Er starb an den Folgen einer Typhuserkrankung und wurde in der Kirche des Patriarchats beigesetzt. - Die vorliegende Korrespondenz behandelt sowohl lokal Ereignisse als auch weitreichende politische und kirchliche Entwicklungen. Zur Sprache kommt dabei u.a. auch der Besuch Kaiser Franz Josephs im Heiligen Land (November 1869), bei dem Valerga allerdings wegen seiner Teilnahme am 1. Vatikanischen Konzil nicht persönlich anwesend sein konnte. - Der Empfänger der auf Italienisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        [Auvergne] Itinéraire de Clermont au Puy de Dome, ou description de cette montagne et de la Vallée de Royat et Fontanat; seconde edition. [AND] two other papers on the geology of Auvergne, by A. C. P. F. Von Lasaulx, and by J. B. Bouillet, bound in.

      Paris, J. B. Baillière, 1836. 8vo (21.2 x 13.3 cm). vi, 102 pp. Early 20th century half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised bands and gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l In this work the author describes the most significant peak in Central France, the extinct volcano Puy-de-Dome, and the geologically interesting surroundings. The work was both available separately, and as part of a series, "Description pittoresque de l'Auvergne, publiée par livraisons indépendantes...". The half-title indicates the series, the half-title verso explains that the papers are in fact "independant", and the title is for this part alone. ADDED in the rear are two near-contemporary papers with roughly the same subject: A. [C. P. F.] Von Lasaulx, “Etudes pétrographiques sur les roches volcaniques de l'Auvergne, suivies d'une note sur les roches désignées sous le nom d'hémithrène et sur quelques autres du plateau gneisso-granitique du département du Puy-de-Dôme, et de quelques autres notes. Traduites par F. Gonnard” (Clermont-Ferrand, Ferdinand Thibaud, 1875). 8vo. 224 pp., two engraved plates of which one large, double-folded. This is fine work by the German geologist and petrologist Arnold Constantin Peter Franz von Lasaulx (1839-1886), professor of geology and mineralogy at the university of Bonn, on the mineralogy of the Massif Central in central France. Apparently Von Lasaulx wrote the work in German and it was published piecemeal between 1868 and 1871 as "Petrographische Studien an den vulkanischen Gesteinen der Auvergne". [AND] J. B. Bouillet “Topographie mineralogique du département du Puy-de-Dome. Suivie d'un dictionnaire oryctognostique, d'une liste des noms des roches et minéraux, d'un tableau des hauteurs des montagnes, villes, villages et hameaux du même département, et d'un tableau comparatif de cet hauteurs. Séconde édition.” (Clermont-Ferrand, Hubler, Bayle et Dubos, 1854. 8vo. vii, 244 pp.). The latter work is very interesting from a geographical point of view too. In 1830, Lecoq and Bouillet co-authored another important paper on the region, "Vues et coupes...Puy-de-Dome" (Ward & Carozzi 1345). Lecoq's paper slightly spotted, mostly in the margins; the Von Lasaulx work with an age-toned and partly spotted title page, the other two papers otherwise near entirely clean. All three are uncommon to rare. A neatly bound set.

        11 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 20 S., 8 bis 4. Pitra wurde in Champforgeuil geboren. 1836 wurde er zum Priester geweiht, von 1835 bis 1840 unterrichtete er am Priesterseminar von Autun. Im Jahre 1842 trat er in die Abtei von Solesmes ein. Pitra war ein herausragender Patristiker, vor allem aber Kenner des östlichen Kirchenrechts und der orthodoxen Liturgie. Er war zugleich Hauptmitarbeiter von Abbé Jacques Paul Migne bei der Ausarbeitung von dessen Serie patrologischer Schriften. In Rom wurde er Berater der Propagandakongregation für Fragen der orientalischen Kirchen. Papst Pius IX. ernannte ihn am 16. März 1863 zum Kardinal. 1869 wurde er Kardinalbibliothekar der Römischen Kirche. 1879 wurde er Kardinalbischof von Frascati (Tusculum), 1889 Kardinalbischof von Porto. Wichtig sind seine Entdeckungen, unter anderem die der Inschrift von Autun, ebenso seine archäologischen und patristischen Schriften (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Tlw. kl.

      - Wien, Rohrmann und Schweigerd, 1836. 8vo (21.4 x 13.5 cm). xxiv, 367 pp., one hand-coloured engraved plate of Kitzbühl, one large, folded, hand-coloured geological-geographical map, one large, folded hand-coloured sheet with geological profile, five folded charts with meteorological observations (four) and botanical observations (one), many tables in the text. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines, vignettes, and title.

        THE ORIGIN AND TRUE CAUSES OF THE TEXAS INSURRECTION, COMMENCED IN THE YEAR 1835.

      [Philadelphia: 1836 - 32pp. Caption title, as issued. Stitched, lightly foxed, Good+. Lundy was, according to Howes, the "first to ascribe this war to a slave- holding conspiracy." Lundy explains that his critique is "of vital importance to the cause of Liberty and Human Rights." Beginning with the Anglo-American colonization of Texas in 1820, he describes the ensuing corruption: "The swindling operations in the Yazoo land speculations were mere child's play in comparison." Emigrants from the United States to Texas routinely evaded the laws "forbidding the introduction of slaves." "First edition in book form of eight articles written by Lundy, under the pseudonym of 'Columbus' for the National Gazette early in 1836. Lundy gives a careful analysis of the Declaration of Independence 'recently issued by the Texas colonists'." [Eberstadt].

        Me-Te-A, a Pottawatomie Chief

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1836. Hand-coloured lithograph. 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.A dignified and extremely influential Potawatomi chief, Me-Te-A was a prominent spokesman for his tribe at the 1821 council that convened in Washington to negotiate the 1821 Treaty of Chicago, in which the Potawatomi relinquished much of their land in Michigan to the federal government. In accordance with his belief in the importance of education, he sent several boys from his tribe to the Fort Wayne Indian agent in 1827, who enrolled them in the Choctaw Academy in Kentucky. The Potawatomi were closely associated with the Chippewa and Ottawa tribes and inhabited the Northeastern region of the United States.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, Cornplanter, and Osceola. 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 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.

Abr'm Prescott's Confession of the Murder of Mrs. Sally Cochran of Pembroke, N.H.--June 23, 1833. [Concord, NH.?]: S.n., 1836. 17" x 11-1/2" broadside. Two-columns of verse in twenty stanzas within woodcut ornamental border, text headed by large woodcut vignette of a coffin. Light browning and a few minor stains, faint horizontal and vertical fold line, chipping to edges, section lacking from bottom margin, just touching bottom right corner of border, a few tears along fold lines with no loss to text, later repairs to verso. $2,500. * Abraham Prescott was found guilty of the murder of Sally Cochran in two separate trials held in Concord in September 1834 and September 1835. Despite a well-crafted insanity defense, he was sentenced to be hanged on December 23, 1835, in Hopkinton, New Hampshire. The execution was postponed to January 6, 1836. The verse account in this broadside presents the murder as a crime of passion: "Oh! lust, accursed lust! 'twas this for which I did the deed; Forfeiting heaven, and life, and bliss, Forfeiting all I need." See McDade, The Annals of Murder 769.

      450, 541 pp.. With 50 coloured lithographic plates (48 portraits). 4 (27,5 x 19,5 cm). Contemporary half calf with title and some gilt on spines. Cf. Brunet II, 1280 cf. Sabin 43410 a. First published in 20 parts (3 vols. folio) by 3 printers (Biddle Greenough Rice and James) in the years 1836-44, containing 120 plates 2nd printing in 1850 (no printer 121 plates 3 vols. in 8). For the life and historical importance of Th. L. Kenney (1785-1859) cf. H. J. Viola in the American National Biography McKenney, Superintendent of Indian Affairs (1824-30), gave his name as the author, but actually James Hall wrote most of the text, which is nowadays, together with the illustrations, considered as a landmark of American ethnography in the 19th century and a main source of North-American Indian history. With the assistance of John Mix Stanley (1814-72) the portraits were painted by Charles Bird King (1786-1862), who was a highly reputated painter of portraits in Washington from the 20ies on. He started his carreer as a student of the Royal Academy in London (1805-12) and came back to Philadelphia and Washington (1816). When the Smithonian Institution in Washington burned down in 1865, many of his portraits of Indian Chiefs had been destroyed as well as most of the portraits Stanley painted in 1842/52 (only 5 of 152 were saved). Cf. Thieme/Becker 20, 325 and 31, 468. Edges slightly rubbed first leaves of both vols. very slightly stained. Please ask for further pictures.

        Arco di Sergio Lepido in Pola città dell’Istria nell’Italia Settentrionale

      Roma 1836 - veduta della città tratta dal "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", rara opera del Rossini, pubblicata quale settima parte del grande corpus grafico dell’architetto ravennate sulle antichità romane, incentrata suglia archi trionfali e funerari eretti dagli imperatori romani. View of the city taken from "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", printed for the author in 1836. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. This volume was published as the seventh part of Rossini's grand opus of engravings of ancient Roman antiquities, and concentrates specifically on triumphal and funerary arches. Half of the engravings are exquisite views of the arches themselves, with the remaining plates providing more detailed study of the bas-relief decoration of the arches.
