        Tah-Chee, a Cherokee Chief

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1837. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's "Indian Tribes of North America": with Albert Newsam's signature in lithograph Tah-Chee, (d. 1848) also known as "Dutch," and "Captain William Dutch" was a revered Cherokee chief and talented hunter, who acquired a significant amount of land for his tribe along the Canadian River after fighting with the Osage and Comanche. He was from an early age a hunter and seems to have spent a great deal of time completely on his own, or, alone with his horse and three dogs. During these travels, he teamed up with members of other tribes, including the Osage (bitter Cherokee enemies) even learning their language. Widely respected by the chiefs of many Indian nations, he was one of several Indian representatives at the 1835 Camp Homes Treaty, which established peace between the United States and various tribes including the Comanche, Wichita, Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, and Osage. Tah-Chee later moved his tribe to east Texas, where he remained until the 1840s when he was defeated by the Republic of Texas army and forced to relocate to the Indian Territory. He retired to a ranch on the Columbia River where he died in 1848. 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 a 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. Cf. BAL, 6934; cf. Bennett, p.79; cf. Field, 992; cf. Howes, M129; cf. Lipperhiede, Mc4; cf. Reese, Stamped With A National Character , p. 24; Sabin, 43410a. Hand-coloured lithograph by Albert Newsam (signed on stone). Very good condition.

        Album of Sixteen Botanical and Zoological Watercolors

      England, 1837. Half Morocco. Very Good. 4to. 11.5 by 9 inches, 29 by 24 cm. With sixteen illustrations rendered in watercolors and some pencilwork. Some of the images were executed directly into the album, while others have been inserted. The botanicals dominate the album, and these are exclusively watercolors. Most of these also feature butterflies a-flutter. Otherwise, there are two ornithological plates, one of pheasants, the other of snipes, and these are done with pencil, with watercoloring used to color the birds. In the former, the pencil work is the greater portion, while in the latter, it is the watercolors that are more pronounced. Only one plate is entirely in pencil, and this is also the only one that is not of a botanical or zoological subject, but rather depicting a crucifix monument in front of a picturesque ruin, with trees towering in the background. Following the plates, there is inserted a printed text on moths, and the remainder of the album is of blank leaves. The illustrations are all bright and alive. Some scattered soiling, never marring the imagery. The binding is heavily scuffed, with abrasions of the marbled boards.

Curtis' principal artists were William Kilburn + James Sowerby and Sydenham T. Edwards. These skilled artists worked with him for 28 years and it was they who were responsible for most of the plates that appeared in the magazine. From October 1834 Walter Fitch became the main artist - a post that he would hold for 40 years. 'In the confident hands of a botanical artist like W.H. Fitch lithographs have an immediacy and spontaneity encountered usually only in original works of art.' Some very slight offsetting to some of the text and plates. Part plate on Clianthus Puniceus demonstrates quality. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cygnus Olor (Mute Swan)

      London 1837 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Cygnus Olor, from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Great Britain" (1862-1873) is in excellent condition with a small foxing mark in the top margin. Measuring 14.75" x 21.25", this lithograph displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Mute Swans, this intimate scene shows adults with their young, called cygnets. the adults are colored in brilliant white with black accenting around their eyes and orange bills. The cygnets are gray colored. John Gould 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’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, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” 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. Gould was especially proud of this sumptuous work “Birds of Great Britain” describing the volumes as a return to his old love of native birds. Unlike in earlier publications, however, the illustrations incorporate more nests, eggs, and young than the earlier works, with a focus on landscapes and family groupings. The ornithologist and his collaborators took more of an interest in creating accurate, appropriate settings, and included more plants and fully delineated environments, resulting in a number of lavish scenes of action and interaction. Gould's rightful pride in these illustrations was reflected in his preface explanation of their coloring: " every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were colored by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Gould's pride in “The Birds of Great Britain” was matched by its public success.

        A Narrative of Missionary Enterprises in the South Sea Islands; with Remarks upon the Natural History of the Islands, Origin, Languages, Traditions, and Usages of the Inhabitants.

      London: Published for the Author, by J. Snow & J.R. Leifchild, 1837, - Octavo (219 × 130 mm) Contemporary half calf on red pebble-grained cloth, rebacked, green and black labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Slightly rubbed, rebacked as noted, some browning, particularly to the plates, but overall very good. Baxter "oil printed" colour frontispiece of a tattooed chief of Rarotonga, engraved title-page vignette, folding map of Polynesia, 5 plates, numerous illustrations to the text. First Edition, Second Thousand. "Rev. Williams was the ablest missionary to the Polynesian people, and his book was the most often printed and widely read of all the contemporary accounts" (Hill). The London Missionary Society sent Williams to the Society Islands in 1816, and he travelled widely in the region, visiting the Cook Islands, and discovering Rarotonga in the Hervey Islands. In 1834 he returned to England for 4 years, commissioning the printing of his Rarotongan translation of the New Testament, and raising some £4,000 to purchase and fit out the brig Camden, the first official LMS missionary vessel. "On his first missionary voyage in the Camden, on 20 November 1839 he landed with two companions at Dillons Bay on Eromanga in the southern New Hebrides. While walking inland the party was attacked by a party of islanders. James Harris was killed on the spot; the rest of the party fled to the ship's boats, but Williams was clubbed to death in the shallows. It was believed that their bodies were subsequently eaten" (ODNB). In his biography of Williams, The Rev. Dr. John Campbell of the Moorfields Tabernacle considered that, "for the purposes of history, he died in the proper manner, at the proper place, and at the proper time" (The Martyr of Erromanga, p228).

        Sense and Sensibility: A Novel.

      Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London 1837 - Complete with the general series title, the illustrated frontispiece, and the engraved second title-page. The printed title and the general series title are both dated 1837. The engraved second title-page, as in all copies as per Gilson, is undated. Publisher's original reddish-brown cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. There is chipping to the spine ends, more so to the head than the foot, and a couple of other stray scuff marks and spots of wear. The cloth along the top two inches of the rear joint is worn through. The endpapers at the front are white while those at the back are yellow, but both are seemingly original. Internally, there is some spotting to the frontispiece and engraved second title-page, a small bookplate on the front pastedown, and some discoloration to the rear endpapers, else the book is quite clean. Preceded only by an 1833 Bentley printing, the First American Edition of 1832, and the First and Second English Editions of 1811 and 1813. According to Gilson, few of these Bentley reprints "survive in libraries, and even fewer in original condition." The only copy of this printing in original cloth recorded by Gilson in his bibliography was his own. A Good Copy, and quite scarce. Gilson D7.

Part of his work included surveying on the old Bathurst Road and there is no basis in fact for the popular legend of Govett having been an absconding convict or bushranger. This series of articles was written following Govett's return to England in 1834.

They are Carlyle's book [offered here] and the 'History of the French Revolution' by Michelet. Carlyle wrote his French revolution as a secular 'tract for the times' and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracy. Scottish puritanism and German romanticism were his lodestars; 'History is the essence of innumerable biographies' was his historical creed. The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colorful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leading revolutionaries. The book at once captured the Englihs-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded popular conceptions of the French Revolution down to the present day" (PMM). Printing and the Mind of Man 304.

        L’Héracléade ou Herculanum enseveli sous la lave du Vésuve

      Delaunay, Crozet, Arthus Bertrand, Paris 1837 - L’Héracléade ou Herculanum enseveli sous la lave du Vésuve. ~ de Florus ~ A Paris, Delaunay, Crozet, Arthus Bertrand. 1837. ~ In-8 de XXJ, (1) f d’errata, 458, (1) p., In-8, demi-chevrette verte à petits coins, dos lisse fileté or, plats de papier maroquiné vert, filet doré encadrant les plats, dos lisse orné de doubles filets dorés, titre en lettres dorées, tr. jonquille. ~ L’Héracléade ou herculanum enseveli sous la lave du Vésuve, poëme de L.A. Florus traduit en vers français avec des notes par J.-F.-S. Maizony de Lauréal. ~ Ancien avocat-général à la Cour impériale de Florence, Maizony de Lauréal était le fils naturel du comte Abrial, mort pair de France. ~ Provenance: Comte Moritz von Dietrichstein, prince du Saint-Empire, (1775-1864) aide-de-camp du général en chef Mack dans l'armée du roi de Naples en 1798, gouverneur du duc de Reichstadt de 1815 à 1832, préfet de la bibliothèque Impériale à Vienne, conseiller aulique. puis grand-chambellan de l'impératrice d'Autriche avec sa signature sur l’ouvrage. ~ Nous ignorons tout de la vie de Florus sauf l'époque à laquelle il a noms mêmes sont incertains : L. Annaeus Florus selon la plupart des manuscrits, mais Iulius Florus selon le plus ancien, le Bambergensis . Contemporain de Trajan et d'Hadrien, c'est vers la fin du règne de celui-ci plutôt que sous Antonin qu'il a rédigé son oeuvre dont nous ignorons le titre. Cette oeuvre a eu un succès considérable dés l'Antiquité et au début du Moyen Age : Orose, saint Augustin et saint Jérôme lui ont fait des emprunts, de même que le Byzantin Malalas ; vers 551, Jordanès en a pratiquement recopié des pages entières; ce succès ne s'est pas démenti par la suite, car nous possédons plus de quatre-vingt-onze manuscrits de l'oeuvre dont le plus ancien - le Bambergensis - est du début du IXe siècle, tandis que les plus récents sont du XVe siècle. Héracléade or Herculanum buried under the lava of Vesuvius. ~ of Florus ~ A Paris, Delaunay, Crozet, Arthus Bertrand. 1837. ~ In-8 XXJ, (1) F of errata, 458, (1) p., In-8, half-chevrette green with small corners, smooth back threaded gold, green maroquiné paper dishes, gilded net framing the dishes, back smoothes decorated with double gilded nets, title in gilded letters, tr. jonquil. ~ Héracléade or herculanum buried under the lava of Vesuvius, poëme of L.A. Florus translated into French worms with notes by J. - F. - S. Maizony de Lauréal. ~ Old lawyer-general at the imperial Court of Florence, Maizony de Lauréal was the natural son of the count Abrial, dead even of France. ~ Source: Count Moritz von Dietrichstein, prince of the Holy roman Empire, (1775-1864) assistance-of-camp of the general Mack in chief in the army of king de Naples in 1798, governor of the duke of Reichstadt of 1815 to 1832, prefect of the Imperial library in Vienna, adviser aulic. then large-chamberlain of the empress of Austria with her signature on the work. ~ We are unaware of all the life of Florus except the time to which it has same names are dubious: L. Annaeus Florus according to the majority of the manuscripts, but Iulius Florus according to oldest, Bambergensis. Contemporary of Trajan and Hadrian, it is towards the end of the reign of this one rather than under Antonin that it wrote his work of which we are unaware of the title. This work had a considerable success dice Antiquity and at the beginning of the Average Age: Orose, holy Augustin and holy Jerome made him loans, just as the Malalas Byzantine; towards 551, Jordanès in practically recopied whole pages; this success was not contradicted thereafter, because we have more handwritten quatre-vingt-onze work of which oldest - Bambergensis - is beginning of IXe century, while most recent are of XVe century.

        Chimney Swallow, Hirundo rustica (Linn)

      London 1837 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Buff-breasted Chimney Swallow, Hirundo rustica (Linn), from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in very good condition with faint evidence of verso page text and light water staining in the top right margin. Measuring 14.25" x 21.25", this lithograph magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. These Chimney Swallows, also known as American Swift's are expertly hand-colored with rich blue and black bodies, reddish and golden faces and white undersides. Precise lines define and detail their feathers and add dimension to their plumage. John Gould 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’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, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” 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, “The Birds of Europe” 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 “The Birds of Europe” 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.

        Sequoyah

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1837. 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. Sequoyah (1776? - 1843) is one of the most prominent men of American history. Known locally as George Guess, he was the son of a mixed-breed named Gist, Guess or Guest, possibly Nathaniel Gist, Revolutionary soldier and trader, and a Cherokee woman, who brought him up closer to the Cherokees than to the whites. He was born near Fort Loudon, Tennessee. Sequoyah was from the start an inventive boy with an inquisitive mind. After achieving some success in agriculture, he sustained a leg injury that caused him to limp for the rest of his life. Sequoyah learned to be a silversmith, eventually excelling at that craft. Around 1809, he began to develop the idea of a written language for the Cherokee. He worked on this for at least 12 years and developed a syllabary that is still in use, primarily in Cherokee language churches. Some doubters among his people were persuaded when Sequoyah was able to teach his daughter to read and write the new alphabet. By 1824, white missionaries had translated parts of the bible into this written Cherokee. The alphabet was used in the Cherokee Phoenix , a newspaper that appeared from 1828 to 1834. Sequoyah visited Washington in 1828, at which time McKenney arranged to have this portrait painted. He spent his last years looking for Cherokees who had traveled West during the Revolution. He died in Mexico in 1843. 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. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf. Lipperhiede Mc4; cf. Reese, Stamped With A National Character 24; Sabin 43410a; Horan p. 264-266. Hand-coloured lithograph by John T. Bowen after a painting by Charles Bird King done in 1828.

        The Dispatches of Field Marshal The Duke of Wellington

      London: John Murray,, 1837-9. during his various campaigns in India, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, The Low Countries, and France from 1799 to 1818. Compiled from Official and Authentic Documents. 13 volumes octavo (216 × 138 mm) Recent dark green half morocco, contrast green linen boards, title gilt direct to spine, Some minor shelf-wear, mottling to the boards of two volumes, light toning, but overall a very good set, soundly bound. The New Edition, complete with the index. Indispensable for the study of Wellington's campaigns, and perhaps the only source for the occasional glimpse of the man. The editor had served "in all the Peninsular engagements down to the storming of Ciudad Rodrigo on 19 January 1812, where he led the 'forlorn hope' … He was concussed in the breach from a head wound, but after regaining consciousness made his way to the citadel and took prisoner the governor, General Barrié, at dinner. The governor surrendered his sword, which Gurwood presented to Wellington. It was returned to him next day when Lord Fitzroy Somerset buckled it on Gurwood in the breach where he had been wounded" (ODNB). Gurwood was wounded three times in the Peninsula, and severely so at Waterloo, in 1837 he became one of Wellington's secretaries, "and was entrusted with the editing of the duke's general orders and selections from his dispatches. Gurwood and the duke were old friends, the duke taking care of Gurwood. He was made CB and in 1839 was appointed a deputy lieutenant of the Tower of London with a salary of £768 p.a., as well as a pension of £2000. However, Gurwood's closing years were clouded by ill health, partly as a result of his war wounds and partly because of the strain of editing the Dispatches. This resulted in a severe depressive illness, and on Christmas day 1845 Gurwood committed suicide …

        Extraordinary Gazette

      1837 - Speech of His Mightiness on opening the second number of Bentley's Miscellany, Edited by "Boz." [London: Richard Bentley, 1837.] Four-page leaflet, disbound. First Edition, larger format, of this very scarce ephemeral Dickens piece -- which includes an illustration by "Phiz" that comprises the very first caricature of Dickens himself.~During 1836, a year which saw the publication of SKETCHES BY BOZ and the beginning of serialization of THE PICKWICK PAPERS, Dickens also accepted the editorship of Bentley's Miscellany, with publication to commence in January 1837. The first issue included a couple of Dickens pieces, and the second issue contained the first monthly instalment of OLIVER TWIST (this novel was serialized here prior to publication in book form; it was then re-serialized in "monthly parts" after publication in book form).~For the third (March) issue, Dickens wrote the "Extraordinary Gazette," written as if it were a royal proclamation (a speech by "his mightiness the editor"), proclaiming the virtues of Bentley's publishing house and including a thinly-veiled pitch for OLIVER TWIST. The "Extraordinary Gazette" was produced in two formats: in this large-format, four-page version, which was initially bound into the third issue of Bentley's Miscellany; and in a smaller-format, eight-page version (same illustration and text as the other, but with Contents of the first three issues plus "opinions of the press") -- for insertion into smaller-format books published by Bentley. The former is the scarcer of the two, and is virtually never found still bound into the Bentley's issue; the latter is quite uncommon as well.~This copy is disbound as usual (though it appears to be disbound as well from some other later binding-up). Condition is very good, with the understandable wear near the hinge. Podeschi E33, first copy. Housed in a cloth folding case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
