        Falco Candicans [Greenland Gyrfalcon]

      London: [by the Author, 1837. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after J. Wolf and H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. (Slightly trimmed along the right side). A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood). This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This improvement is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

        Autograph note signed to Viscount Cole, February 17, 1837

      1837. <p>1 page, plus address on verso. 181 x 176 mm. Small hole where seal was broken, otherwise fine.<p>Autograph note signed from geologist and paleontologist William Buckland, author of Reliquiae Diluvianae (1823) and the first professor of geology at Oxford University, to his former student William Willoughby Cole (1807-86), known by his courtesty title of Viscount Cole until 1840, when he assumed the title of third Earl of Enniskillen. Cole, an enthusiastic amateur geologist and paleontologist, amassed one of the world&#39;s largest collections of fossil fishes, which is now at the British Museum. He served as an M.P. in the House of Commons from 1831 until his elevation to the peerage. </p><p>Buckland&#39;s note reads "I inclose a few letters which at your first leisure I will thank you to frank for myself and Mrs. Buckland." As a Member of Parliament Cole enjoyed franking privileges (free postage), which he would have routinely extended to all of his friends and colleagues as was customary at the time. Buckland would have appreciated this service, since postage in England was expensive prior to the introduction of the Penny Post in 1840. </p>

        To-Ka-Con [To-Ka Cou], A Sioux Chief

      E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1837 - Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after a portrait by George Cooke done in 1837. In excellent condition. 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. Tokacou, or He Who Inflicts the First Wound was a Yankton Sioux warrior and a member of the tribal police force. This elite group maintained high standards of discipline in the community, meting out appropriate punishments when required to, including the death penalty. Here he is portrayed with the sword of authority at the ready. He was signer of several important treaties in the 1820s and 30s. 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 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. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

        Illustrations of exotic Entomology, containing upwards of six hundred and fifty figures and descriptions of foreign insects, interspersed with remarks and reflections on their nature and properties.

      A new edition ... by J.O. Westwood. London, H.G. Bohn, 1837. 3 volumes. 4to (285 x 225 mm). With 150 handcoloured engraved plates and 1 plain engraved frontispiece. Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lettering. A fine copy of the second and last edition of one of the most attractive English entomological works on exotic insects, with superb hand-colouring of the plates. The first edition appeared from 1770-1782. Dru Drury (1725-1803) was the son of a silversmith. "By virtue of his marriage and inheritance of the family business he was a reasonably wealthy man who could afford to support his most serious hobby entomology. Drury's collection had great fame during his life time. He spent much time and money persuading others to collect specimens for him from foreign countries. He had a wide correspondence with entomologists around the world. Linnaeus (1707-1778) and Willliam Kirby (1759-1850) both named species after him" (Harvey, Gilbert & Martin, A catalogue of manuscripts in the Entomological library... 119). The majority of the fine plates were drawn and engraved by Moses Harris.//Provenance: 'William G. Bowditch from his friend Mrs Wigglesworth' on inside frontcover and a few more lines by the same person on free endpaper 'that the study of nature may lead directly, to the knowledge, and love, of our kind, Heavenly Father'.//Nissen ZBI, 1160; Horn & Schenkling 23891.

        Leitfaden zur Nordischen Alterthumskunde,

      Copenhagen, Im Secretariat der Gesellschaft; Hamburg, Perthes, Besser & Mauke; St. Petersburg, Graeff, , 1837. herausgegeben von der Königlichen Gesellschaft für Nordische Alterthumskunde. Octavo. (211 × 135mm). Original light card printed wraps. Wood-engraved illustrations to the text. Light browning, scattered foxing, wraps just a touch rubbed, but overall very good indeed. First Edition in German, first published in Danish in 1836, Thomsen&#39;s manual was immediately translated in recognition of its importance. The tripartite division suggested here was fundamental in winning acceptance for the idea of the Antiquity of Man, opening the way for the development of the discipline of prehistory. Thomsen was the first curator of the Danish National Museum of Antiquities, and his first task was "... to arrange the growing collections of the museum into some coherent order. In so doing he realised that the artefacts of iron must be later than many of those of bronze, and that stone tools were abundant before those of bronze came into use. This allowed him to produce a classification of three technological stages: of stone, bronze, and iron. His guidebook to the National Museum... introduced his Three Age system to the world of scholarship." (Renfrew Prehistory.) Uncommon and a wonderful copy.

        Le Tourlourou.

      Paris, 1837 - Comprising: A complete autograph manuscript of one of De Kock's acutely observed novels of gritty Parisian life. In Le Tourlourou (1837) a young barmaid, Marie is the object of a strange case of mistaken relationship when a letter arrives from a countess seeking 'l'objet de mes plus chères affections'. Marie assumes the letter refers to her, but when she finds out the Countess is merely asking after an item of lost property, she becomes distraught and throws herself into the Canal Saint-Martin. She is saved by a young man who has previously tried and failed to gain her affections, and the two are finally married. The Oxford Companion to French Literature describes De Kock (1794-1871) as 'the prolific and immensely popular author of rollicking, risky, or more often frankly coarse, frequently sentimental and fundamentally good-natured novels.' Certainly prolific, De Kock published over 100 novels, which attained worldwide celebrity in translation, especially in American and British collected editions (of which it is sometimes wryly noted that the prose was much improved by translation). This manuscript certainly gives the impression of rollicking speed; this is not a fair copy, and while there are many deletions and emendations, these do not seem to have detained the author for long. Autograph manuscript on paper, [2], 57, [3], 59, [5], 60, [4], 59, [1], in a quick, cursive but generally legible hand with frequent deletions and corrections. Contemporary cloth backed marbled boards, uncut, spine lettered in gilt, contemporary inkstamp. (Rather worn, with portion of paper cover lacking on lower board, but the interior generally clean and fresh. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Philosophy of Animal Magnetism. Together With The System of Manipulating Adopted to Produce Ecstasy and Somnambulism... By a Gentleman of Philadelphia

      Philadelphia: Merrihew and Gunn, 1837., 1837. First Edition. 12mo. 84pp. Bound in original printed paper boards professionally rebacked with linen. In a quarter leather tailor made clamshell box with marbled paper sides. Boards worn but strong and handsome, internally clean and fresh with very slight occasional spotting. Attributed most convincingly to Poe by Joseph Jackson in 1928. The theory of animal magnetism became the basis of treatment in Europe and the United States that was based on non-verbal elements such as gaze, passes of the hands near the body, mental elements such as will and intention, and on occasion the physical "laying on of hands." It was popular in the nineteenth century, with a strong cultural impact. From some of the practices of animal magnetism branched out hypnotism, spiritualism, New Thought, so-called "magnetic healing", and parapsychological research.

        Falco tinnunculus, Linn (Common Krestel)

      London 1837 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country&#146;s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, &#147;A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.&#148; For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, &#147;The Birds of Europe&#148; was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of &#147;The Birds of Europe&#148; are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. This hand-colored lithograph, Falco tinnunculus, (Linn), measures 21.5&#148; x 14.75&#148; and is in excellent condition with light pencil marks in the top right corners. These birds of prey, commonly called Kestrels, are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown and gray. Great attention is given to the elaborate patterns of their plumage and tail feathers. The dynamic positioning of these birds allows for each side to be appreciated as well as the differences between male an female. These falcons are known for their distinguished hunting techniques of hovering over their prey and swooping down when opportunity arises.
