        Ki-On-Twog-Ky, or Cornplant

      [E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1836 - Hand-coloured lithograph 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. The son of a Seneca mother and the Dutch trader John O'Bail, Ki-On-Twog-Ky or Cornplanter was one of three principal leaders of the Iroquois Confederacy of Six Nations and a renowned Seneca war chief who fought in the French and Indian War (1754-1763). In opposition to Joseph Brant's insistence on the Confederacy allying itself with the British in the American Revolution, Cornplanter, like Red Jacket, favored neutrality, claiming that the war was a white man's affair in which they shouldn't intervene. Despite his initial protestations and the uncustomary dissension among the members of the Grand Council regarding the issue of participating in the war, the Seneca eventually yielded to majority opinion and agreed to fight for the British. In the aftermath of the war, Cornplanter intended to act as a diplomatic mediator between the Seneca and the colonists, negotiating auspicious terms for his nation. However, he became increasingly unpopular among his people after signing treaties at Fort Stanwix (1784), Fort Harmar (1789), and Genesee (1797), which ceded tracts of their ancestral homelands to the Federal government. Although his conciliatory actions earned him the contempt of his nation and political rivals such as Red Jacket, he obtained the respect of the U.S. government, which, in return for his cooperation in the Genesee treaty, awarded him an annual pension and a plot of land in Ohio. In 1786, he traveled to Philadelphia to attend a ceremony given by the Tammany Society, an organization devoted to synthesizing European and Native American culture, and then went to New York to meet with Congress regarding the distribution of Iroquois lands. Cornplanter later journeyed to Washington to visit President Jefferson in 1801-2, and, despite his depleted authority, rallied the Seneca to the American cause in the War of 1812. One of the most revered and feared tribes, the Seneca inhabited the most westerly location of the six tribes constituting the Iroquois Confederacy. They were directly south of Lake Ontario. 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, 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 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 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attentio [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Essays on the principles of charitable institutions: being an attempt to ascertain what are the plans best adapted to improve the physical and moral condition of the lower orders in England.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman. 1836. 8vo., xv + (1) + 371 + (1)pp., followed by a 12-page booklist, original green cloth with printed spine label, uncut. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 29623. Kress C.4117. A second part was projected, [but was never published due to the author's illness,] for which there is a prospectus at the end of the volume (pp.367-371). The author (sadly anonymous) of this particularly thoughtful study of the real ends of pre-Victorian charity presents his theme in the context of current government and public policy towards the poor. 'The well being of a large portion of the community ... seems so materially to depend on a thorough investigation of what constitutes the real interests of the poor, that it is thought desirable another season should not be suffered to pass without an endeavour to call the attention of the public to a subject of such great importance'. (pp. v-vi). The unfinished work is a collection of nine linked essays, of which the first five attempt to analyse the causes of poverty - 'external', 'moral', and 'on that poverty which arises from individual and blameless misfortune, and on the remedial principles which are appropriate to it'. The remaining essays (p.138 onwards) consider charities for the poor and the relief of indigence, support charities (e.g. loan funds, provident associations, friendly benefit clubs and savings' banks), and, finally, public or government schemes, including cheap food programmes, employment opportunities, home colonization of waste lands, cottage farms, allotments and so forth.

[caption title and beginning of text]

      [N.p. likely Augusta, 1836. 6,[2]pp. Folded sheets, stitched. Minor foxing and toning. Very good. Untrimmed. A rare Maine slip-bill document resolving that the citizens from Maine and other states should not interfere with the issue of slavery in slave-holding states. The legislature writes that "Any interference, therefore, of a State or the inhabitants of a State with the domestic concerns of another State, is dangerous, as having a direct tendency to create jealousies between the States, and thereby weakening the attachment to the Union, which is our only security against domestic dissensions and foreign aggressions." This is a somewhat surprising position for the state of Maine to take at the time. Maine came into the Union in 1820 as a free state to balance the admission of the slave-owning state of Missouri. Also, Maine opposed the admission of the Republic of Texas in 1836 (the same year the present document was printed) on the basis of Texas's position on slavery. Curious that they would take two seemingly opposite positions in the same year. Still, the legislature printed the resolution and authorized copies to be sent to the four southern slave-owning states mentioned in the title.

        The Aboriginal Portfolio]

      [Philadelphia 1836 - 18 1/4 x 11 inches). Blue upper wrapper to original part number 8 bound as title, 72 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Lewis by Lehman & Duval, bound without the three letterpress broadside prospectus Advertisement leaves to parts 1-3. (Occasional expert repairs.). Bound to style in dark green quarter morocco over contemporary patterned cloth-covered boards First edition. Scarcer than McKenney and Hall's 'History of the Indian Tribes', Prince Maximilian's 'Reise in das Innere von Nord-America' or Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', Lewis' work records the dress of the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Shawnee, Sioux, Miami, Fox, Iowa and other tribes at treaties of Prairie du Chien, Fort Wayne, Fond du Lac and Green Bay. Publication of the work was costly and time consuming. The work was originally issued in 10 parts with 8 plates per number in printed wrappers. The publisher was forced into bankruptcy while part nine was in the press, however, reducing the edition and forcing part ten to be just barely finished and sparsely distributed. A projected eleventh part would have contained "Historical and Biographical Description of the Indians," but was never completed. The title and three advertisement leaves are therefore the only text in the work, excluding that on the wrappers. Copies are found with 72 plates (as here, being the first 9 numbers), others with 77 and occasionally 80. Bennett p.68; Field 936; Howes L315; Reese, Stamped With A National Character 23; Sabin 40812. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Stum_Ma_Nu: A Flat-Head Boy

      F.W. Greenough, Philadelphia 1836 - Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.5" x 14.25" 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. Stum_Ma_Nu was from the Chinook, or Flatheads, tribe of Washington near the Columbia River. Overall toning and offsetting. Slight stain along right edge. Small chips to lower left and upper right corners. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Syria, the Holy Land & Asia Minor illustrated In a series of views drawn from nature by W H Bartlett, William Purser, etc

      London, Fisher, Son & Co., [1836–7]. 2 vols. of 3, large 4to, pp. [iv], 80; 76 pp. with engraved additional titles and 75 engraved plates. A very good copy in nineteenth-century diaper calf, backstrips gilt with green labels, covers, board edges and turn-ins all gilt-rolled, edges and endpapers marbled. Joints and board edges lightly worn, head of vol. 1 backstrip chipped, still quite handsome. First edition. “This work formed the first part of Fisher’s projected series "The Turkish Empire Illustrated", and it appeared in 30 parts of four plates each... The great majority of the views are by W. H. Bartlett, who travelled extensively in the Levant. These drawings must have been made on his first journey in 1834–5; this seems to be the first book in which any of Bartlett’s Eastern drawings appear. The third volume [not present] includes plates after drawings by Thomas Allom, who must have travelled in the Levant c. 1836–7. The text is by John Carne, well-known as the author of Letters from the East” (Blackmer). Blackmer 291. Röhricht 1690. Weber 1125.

Octavo, late 19th-century straight-grain dark green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $3200.First editions of Yarrell's two great natural histories, together with the second edition of Bell's work on British reptiles, profusely illustrated with over 900 fine wood engravings, in handsome uniform morocco-gilt bindings by E. Riley & Son.“These works are compiled on the same plan; they contain accurate figures, with accompanying descriptions, of every known variety of British fish or bird; and they have from the first taken their position as the standard authorities on the subject in our language. Few books on natural history are more agreeable to the general reader: the style is ever pleasant, and the truth with which he describes the habits of the birds is such as might have been expected from the keen sportsman who had so often watched their motions when at liberty in their native haunt” (Allibone, 2882). Appearing later than Thomas BewickÂ’s famous History of British Birds (1797), YarrellÂ’s History boasts “a text of greater ornithological interest than Bewick's” (Knight, 163). The History of British Fishes is “indispensable in every English angler's library as a work of reference” (Westwood & Satchell, 244). “In point of accuracy of description and the homely truthfulness of his account of the habits of birds, Mr. Yarrell has had no equal” (Allibone, 2882). Also a dental surgeon-and “for a long period the only capable surgeon who applied scientific surgery to diseases of the teeth” (DNB)-Bell, then professor of zoology at KingÂ’s College, first published his survey of British reptiles in 1839. Lowndes, 3015. Birds: Zimmer, 697-98; Nissen, 182. Fishes: Westwood & Satchell, 243-44. Sage, 243. Thacher, 590. Armorial bookplates.Text and plates quite clean.

        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. 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. * 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. OCLC locates 7 copies (American Antiquarian Society, Brown, Dartmouth, Harvard, Peabody Essex Museum, University of Michigan, Yale).

        Letter from Sydney, many references to early life in colonial Glebe...

      1836. Single sheet of laid paper, 318 x 340 mm., folded to letter size, written in cross hatch, old folds with postal stamps for Sydney, Liverpool and London. Long manuscript letter from Mrs Harriet Betts to her sister in London, containing good detail of colonial social activities and local events in Glebe. The letter was written over the course of two months, with the commencement date of December 10 1835 and concluded on the 8 February the following year. Harriet Betts (1780-1852), was married to John Betts of Glebe, her letter was written from Minusnarra Cottage and there is much detail of social activities in the colony. Finer points of the letter include a description of a picnic party to the North shore attended by her daughter Harriot (which involved a horse-back ride), a boat trip to the Medway currently in the harbour, where the captain served them 'a handsome cold collation with champagn' after which they went round to the Heads and landed, experiencing splendid views, collecting shells and ascending rocks before an excellent dinner with more Champaign. The neighbours of the Betts, Mr & Mrs Graham of Hereford House are duly mentioned in regards to the picnic. They also visited Mrs 'B' and 'saw her splendid mansion over it is the handsomest in the Colony & will when entirely finished cost 8 to 10 thousand...' Visitors to Mrs Betts included a Mrs Dowling 'a pretty engaging young woman married to Judge Dowlings nephew, they have a handsome cottage at Woolloomoolloo & one little boy' also 'an Aunt of Mrs Baker's who was wrecked in the Enchantress & lost all her clothes & Piano'.Minusnarra cottage appears to be a temporary residence, as Harriet lists in her letter a selection of household items she would like shipped, she express's the hope that the 'cottage we mean to begin building after this rainy season' is ready when the goods arrive. Harriet Betts is recorded as dying in Kew Cottage, on Glebe Point Road, Kew Cottage was built circa 1835 and demolished by fire in 1907.As the dates and postmarks indicate, this letter was carried aboard the convict transport Norfolk on her return journey, departing on 11 February 1836. Small loss from the seal being removed and several repairs with tape.
