        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.

        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.

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.

      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.

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.

        Chart of the Red Sea

      Londra 1836 - Engraved sea chart on 4 sheets, numerous soundings and a few coastal profiles, tracks of the Ship Palinurus, many place names in Arabic and English, a few minor tears to margins. Large and detailed chart of the Red Sea. The survey was carried out by Commander Robert Moresby aboard the 'Palinurus' a ship of the newly formed Indian Navy (formerly the Bombay Marine). The chart was held in such great esteem at the time that Richard Burton mentions it in his work 'First Footsteps in East Africa' (1856), in which he quotes from the 'Quarterly Review' (No. cxxix. Dec. 1839): "In five years, the admirable maps of that coral-bound gulf - the Red Sea - were complete: the terrors of the navigation had given place to the confidence inspired by excellent surveys. In 1829 the Thetis of ten guns, under Commander Robert Moresby, convoyed the first coal ship up the Red Sea, of the coasts of which this skilful and enterprising seaman made a cursory survey, from which emanated the subsequent trigonometrical operations which form our present maps. Two ships were employed, the 'Benares' and 'Palinurus', the former under Commander Elwon, the latter under Commander Moresby. It remained, however, for the latter officer to complete the work. Some idea may be formed of the perils these officers and men went through, when we state the 'Benares' was forty-two times aground".

        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.

        Allan le Jeune Déporté à Botany-Bay.

      Paris: Desiree Eymery, 1836. Small octavo, frontispiece, title vignette and three full-page engraved plates; contemporary prize label, a handsome copy in contemporary tree calf. First edition of a scarce French children's story set in Australia about an errant child sent to the convict colony at Botany Bay. The introduction notes the work is one of moral instruction, teaching children valuable lessons in piety, honesty, honour and to love and respect their parents. Although the book is set in Australia, Muir notes the Gallic nature of its description with exotic passages on transportation, kangaroos and cannibals. The finely engraved plates are noteworthy: one depicts the hero, Allan, bound to a tree and struggling to escape as native figures dance around a blazing fire in the distance. Spine ends a little worn with slight loss at the headband.

        GRAMMAIRE TURKE: PRÉCÉDÉE D'UN DISCOURS PRÉLIMINAIRE SUR LA LANGUE ET LA LITTÉRATURE DES NATIONS ORIENTALES

      Londres: W.H. Allen, 1836. 4to. publisher's blind stamped cloth. x, (6), lxxx, 214 pages, 5 lithographs, (2) with errata. First edition of the French translation done by Sarah Davids. A grammar of the Turkish language with a preliminary discourse and Ottoman Turkish excerpts with translations. In the discourse, Davids (1811-1832) argues that the Turks are a separate, honorable, and intelligent race with a beautiful and complex language. Davids' writings were translated into Turkish in 1851, and the historian Bernard Lewis writes that this book, "made the Turks imagine themselves as having a distinct nationality and independence." Also contains five lithographs illustrating excerpts from ancient and modern Turkish texts by the early English lithographer Joseph Netherclift. (see Twyman, Early Lithographed Bookspages 236-239). Netherclift had been producing lithographic work in London since around 1820, and as Twyman states became "the leading producer of lithographed facsimiles in Britain," until he was succeeded by his son in 1855. Multiple tables with French, phonetic Turkish pronunciation, and Turkish script. Wear to head and tail of spine with some small holes to rear hinge. Minor discoloration to boards.
