        Abr'm Prescott's Confession of the Murder of Mrs. Sally Cochran.

      1836 - "Oh! Lust, Accursed Lust! 'Twas This for Which I Did the Deed" [Broadside]. [Murder]. Private Individual at the Bar. 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.

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.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with Fifty Portraits from the Indian Gallery in the War Department at Washigton. 2 vols.

      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.

        Me-Te-A, a Pottawatomie Chief

      F.W. Greenough, Philadelphia 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. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf. Lipperhiede Mc4; cf. Reese, American Color Plate Books p. 24; Sabin 43410a. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed to Thomas Waters, jun. (William Lamb, 1779-1848, from 1829 2nd Viscount, Prime Minister 1834 & 1835-1839)

      1836 - (Clerk of the Peace, Worcester), acknowledging receipt of his letter and "A Petition from Members of the Established Church praying for the Redress of Dissenters Grievances", and saying that he "has presented it", 1 side 4to, Downing Street, 9th March light red mark in blank lower right corner A letter from 'the Age of Reform'. The Sacramental Test Act had been repealed in 1828, but in 1833 a 'United Committee' of Dissenters had summarized the chief outstanding grievances. The most important were the compulsory use of the Anglican service for marriages; exaction of Church rates; and the alleged liability of places of worship to poor-rates. These were followed by the want of a legal registration of births and deaths, lack of right of burial by their own ministers in parish church-yards; the virtual exclusion from Oxford and Cambridge Universities; and the lack of a Charter for the non-denominational London University.

Contemporary green half morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt fish ornaments and lettering, top edges gilt. The rare first edition of the most splendid book on Scandinavian fishes.

He was the middle of 3 brothers who made their living as painters, illustrators or naturalists and moved to Stockholm to assist his eldest brother Magnus with his work 'Svenska Foglar'. The publication of the present work, his masterpiece, began in 1836 and was completed with the help of his younger brother Ferdinand in 1857. The text was started by Bengt Friedrich Fries and completed by Ekström and Sundevall. The work was issued in 10 parts including the supplement (present in our copy). No title page was published and the printed wrappers of the first part are bound in its place. The work is prone to serious foxing, which is not the case in the present copy. The text has some minor foxing and browning and 1 plain plate is foxed. All the other plates are in mint condition. A fine complete copy of this rare work.//Nissen, Schöne Fischbücher 56; Nissen ZBI, 1435.

Krähwinkeliade mit Bezug auf die Revolutionswirren jener Zeit. Die am 1. Juli 1848 am Wr. Carl-Theater uraufgeführte Volkskomödie ist das einzige Stück, das Nestroy nicht unter dem Druck der Zensur geschrieben hat, da es in dem kurzen Zensurfreien Zeitraum (14. März-11. Nov. 1848) verfasst und aufgeführt wurde. Unter großem Jubel wurde das Werk bis zum Ende der Saison 36-mal gespielt. Das Stück verherrlicht die Ideen und Erfolge der Revolution und zeichnet gleichzeitig ein satirisches Bild der kleinsinnigen Nutznießer und engstirnigen Opfer der Revolution. "Am 31. Oktober besetzte die Armee des Fürsten Windischgrätz die Stadt und mit der Herrlichkeit der Freiheit in Krähwinkel war es zu Ende, in den Straßen und auf der Bühne. Es war nur eine Posse gewesen. - Sie hat großen Wert als von Gedanken durchleuchtetes und über sich selbst hinaus deutendes Zeitdokument ... " (Franz H. Mautner, Nestroy, 1978, Ss.298-302). - Die Illustrationen in zeitgenössischem Kolorit zeigen drei Szenenbilder nach Aquarellen von Johann Christian Schoeller (1782-1851) mit Johann Nestroy als Eberhard Ultra.

        Chronique d'Abou Djafar Mohammed Tabari, fils de Djarir, fils d'Yezid; traduite sur la version persane d'Abou-Ali Mohammed Belami, fils de Mohammed, fils d'Abd-Allah, d'après les manuscrits de la Bibliothèque du Roi, par Louis Dubeux.

      Paris: for the Oriental Translation Fund of Great Britain and Ireland, 1836 - Large quarto (320 x 250 mm). Original green cloth, printed paper label to spine as issued, binder's ticket of W. Runting, Chancery lane to front pastedown. Scattered light cockling to cloth, heavier on the spine, spine label a little chipped, corners bumped, a few pale markings to sides, small portion of cloth worn away midway along front joint, small spot to fore edge, a little pale foxing towards front and rear, else internally crisp, fresh and almost entirely unopened. A very good copy. Frequent Arabic types. Engraved presentation leaf printed in purple with foliate border. First edition in any language of Tabari's Ta'rikh al-rusul wa'l-muluk ("History of Prophets and Kings"), "the most important of the classical Arabic historical texts still extant" (Encylopaedica Iranica), volume I (all published); this copy with a presentation leaf addressed to noted translator and businesswoman Lady Charlotte Guest (née Schreiber, 1812–1895), best remembered for her edition of the Mabinogion, the medieval Welsh prose cycle and the earliest recorded prose literature of the British Isles. "Introspective and uninterested in the usual accomplishments thought fit for a young lady", Guest also taught herself Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian (ODNB). Dubeux's text, based on the 963 AD Persian translation by Samanid vizier Bal'ami, covers the period from the creation of the world to the time of Biblical prophet Shu'ayb. One of the first works published by the Oriental Translation Fund, the translation was not completed until the edition in four volumes by Hermann Zotenberg, published 1867–74. Tabari (839–923) was one of the most eminent scholars of the early 'Abbasid era. Born in Amol, present-day Iran, he followed the custom of the time and visited the various intellectual centres of the Islamic east, including Basrah, Kufah, and Rayy, before eventually settling in Baghdad. Although learned in jurisprudence and hadith, he is remembered chiefly for his immense Qur'anic commentary and his Ta'rikh: "both are notable for their comprehensiveness and their meticulous citation of multiple and often conflicting sources, presumably in order to bring out their differences in accounts and interpretations, though not always (especially in the history) attempting to resolve them" (ibid.)

A modest copy of an uncommon book. "In 1836, he published the novel Berkeley Castle, based on family records. The self-glorifying work invited satire, and was duly reviewed savagely in Fraser's Magazine. Berkeley, who claimed to have been instructed in the noble art of pugilism by Byron's own trainer [i. e., John 'Gentleman' Jackson], went with his bullies and horse-whipped the frail proprietor of the journal, James Fraser, who gallantly refused to name the reviewer, William Maginn. Maginn later challenged Berkeley to a duel. A court case was brought against Berkeley for assault, and Fraser was awarded £100. In a countersuit for [libel], the aggrieved nobleman was awarded a paltry 40s" (John Sutherland, The Longman Companion to Victorian Fiction). OCLC Number: 2291698.

        Vermischte Schriften botanischen Inhalts.Tübingen, Ludwig Friedrich Fues, 1845. 4to. With 13 numbered lithographed plates; 3 partly and 2 fully coloured by hand, drawn by Mohl himself and printed by F. Federer. Contemporary half tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine.

      - Pritzel 6349; Stafleu & Cowan 6187. A collection of 31 articles previously published between 1836 and 1842 in various botanical journals, some here revised or augmented. It marks the end of the early period of Mohl's work. Hugo von Mohl (1805-1872) was a famous German botanist, outstanding plant anatomist and physiologist, and professor at Tübingen University, who renewed the technique of microscopy. His most lasting research was in the field of plant cell structure and physiology, where his meticulous observations were the first attempts at cyto-chemistry. He differentiated the cell membrane, nucleus, cellular fluid, utricle and a substance he called "protoplasm". This term had earlier been used by the Czech physiologist Purkinje to denote the embryonic material of eggs. Mohl was the first person (1846) to use the term protoplasm in plant cell biology. For him, protoplasm was a preliminary substance in cell generation, a quite different sense than modern usage (which dates from Schultze). He was also the first to clearly explain osmosis, and he discovered that the secondary walls of plant cells are fibrous. A good copy, with only some foxing, and a small water stain in the gutter margin of the first 10 pages. Binding slightly rubbed and partly cracked at the hinges.

        Le Règne Animal distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux.

      Paris, Fortin, Masson et Cie, (1836-1849). 20 volumes (10 text-volumes & 10 atlas-volumes). Royal-8vo (269 x 188mm). With 993 engraved plates, apart from a few anatomical plates, all finely handcoloured. Publisher's half brown morocco, gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering. A very fine complete copy of the famous 'Disciples Edition', which eclipses all others for scientific accuracy and beauty of embellishment. Each division is edited by the most eminent professors of this period such as: Milne Edwards, Quatrefages, d'Orbigny, Valenciennes. The work is composed as follows: Les Mammifères, by M. Edwards; Les Oiseaux, by A. d'Orbigny; Les Reptiles, by M. Duvernoy; Les Poissons, by A. Valenciennes; Les Mollusques, by G.P. Deshayes; Les Insectes, by Audouin, Blanchard, Doyère et M. Edwards; Les Arachnides, by A. Duges and M. Edwards; Les Crustacées, by M. Edwards; Les Annelides, by M. Edwards; Les Zoophytes, by M. Edwards. The numbering of the plates is somewhat confusing as some plates have never been published. Nissen gives a collation but his listing is not quite correct. The best artists of the period contributed such as E.Travies, Vaillant, Audouin, A. Milne Edwards, Oudart. The plates are of a surprising exactness of detail and the colouring is very attractive. //Provenance: bookplate of Théodore Riant.//Nissen ZBI, 1014.
