        BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IN PURSUANCE OF THE PROVISIONS OF A TREATY BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE CHICKASAW INDIANS....I, ANDREW JACKSON, DO HEREBY DECLARE AND MAKE KNOWN, THAT A PUBLIC SALE FOR THE DISPOSAL OF SUCH OF THE LANDS CEDED TO THE UNITED STATES BY THE SAID INDIANS AS ARE HEREINAFTER DESCRIBED, SHALL BE HELD.... [caption title and beginning of text]

      [Jackson, Ms. or Memphis?]. 1837.. [2]pp. printed on the rectos of two folio sheets. Woodcut seal of the United States in the top margin of the first page. Horizontal center fold. Edgeworn, with some creases and small tears. A bit dark around the edges. About very good overall. A remarkable survival, this is the only copy that we are able to locate of a declaration by President Andrew Jackson announcing the sale of Chickasaw Indian lands in Mississippi in 1837. This sale was a part of the American government's plan to move the Indians of the Southeast, including the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole tribes, from their historic lands to the newly-created Indian Territory, an event popularly known as the "Trail of Tears." Whereas his predecessors in office had wavered in their commitment to remove the Indians of the Southeast to lands west of the Mississippi, President Andrew Jackson embarked upon a vigorous program of Indian removal, especially following the passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Whereas other tribes simply ceded their lands for land further west, the Chickasaw astutely sold their lands to the government. In 1832 at Pontotoc, and again in Washington in 1834, the United States signed treaties with the Chickasaw by which the tribe sold its lands in Mississippi. According to historian Francis Paul Prucha, the Chickasaw lands were sold for reasonable prices, and the tribe moved with considerable wealth, though about one-sixth of the tribe perished from disease during the journey west. This declaration announces the sale of the Chickasaw lands in Mississippi. The sale was scheduled to be begin on Monday, May 5, 1837, at the Land Office in "Pontitoc" [sic], Mississippi, and would last for two weeks. The lands offered for sale are listed in two groupings, "East of the Meridian Line," and "West of the Meridian Line," and were offered in quarter sections and fractional quarter sections. In all, nearly sixty parcels of land are listed. Lands designated as reservations under the provisions of the treaties would be excluded. The declaration is dated by Andrew Jackson at Washington on February 21, 1837, and is attested to by James Whitcomb, Commissioner of the General Land Office. We are unable to locate any other copies of this presidential declaration by Andrew Jackson. The Library of Congress has a similar proclamation, issued by Martin Van Buren in 1838 announcing another sale at Pontotoc on January 7, 1839 (apparently the only known copy), and they ascribe a place of printing of Washington, DC. The crude typography, layout, and quality of the Great Seal on both of these proclamations, however, leads us to believe that they were printed on a frontier press, quite likely in Jackson, Mississippi or in Memphis, where the Chickasaw gathered in the summer of 1837 for their journey westward. This declaration would have been printed in a small number, for circulation among land agents and interested buyers. Rare and important evidence of the mechanics of Indian removal policy, apparently the only known copy. LIBRARY OF CONGRESS PRINTED EPHEMERA COLLECTION, PORTFOLIO 231, FOLDER 21 (ref). Francis Paul Prucha, "United States Indian Policies, 1815- 1860" in HANDBOOK OF NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS, VOLUME 4, HISTORY OF INDIAN-WHITE RELATIONS, pp.45-46.

        New Specimen of Cast-Metal Ornaments and Wood Types, Sold by W. Davison, Alnwick

      [Alnwick: W. Davison, c.1837]. 4to, 130ff. printed on wove paper on one side only, unpaginated and unsigned, title printed within a border made up of decorative units, presentation copy (see below), contains 1082 impressions of Bewick wood-engravings, stock cuts, metal ornaments, wood letters, ornamental borders, etc., numbered and priced, specimens 1061-1079 are absent as in all copies, 400 of the cuts are marked with a manuscript 'B', indicating that these cuts are by Bewick or come from his workshop, blank bottom right-hand margin of title page torn away and neatly repaired, cont. reversed calf, covers with blind tooled border, leather spine label, a nice copy. An exceedingly rare and attractive specimen book of "double interest as an unusual example of the enterprise of a provincial printer and because of its Bewick association…" (Isaac). The first 50 or so cuts illustrate the Burns, Beattie, Blair, and Fergusson poetical works and Percy's Hermit of Warworth; followed by many stock cuts for tea, tobacco, auctions, race cards, sailing ships, walking stallions, royal & Newcastle arms; then, as one would imagine, there is a long run of animal cuts for Buffon, natural histories and children's books, all priced and numbered. Hugo quotes a manuscript note on the fly-leaf of his copy of this book "W. Davison… stated to me that he had paid Thomas Bewick upwards of five hundred pounds for the various Woodcut Blocks, used in illustrating his publications. With a view to disposing of his Blocks, he struck off a very few copies of this Work, as specimens; but, changing his mind as to their disposal, he suppressed the Work, which is very scarce, in consequence of his using up the copies as waste". However, Hugo then goes on to give his own views "A more correct account, I believe, is that the volume was done as an Advertisement for the sale of his stereotypes, of which he had several taken from most of the blocks, and not of the blocks themselves. Since his death many of his best blocks, which he hardly ever permitted to be used, have come into my possession, and the stereotype copies are widely diffused among printers in the North of England." With a presentation inscription on the title page from William Davison to William H. Angus, grandson of Thomas Angus, founder of the family publishing firm which was established in 1774. Thomas became a leading publisher of street literature and employed Thomas Bewick from 1774-1776. After his death in 1784, he was succeeded by his widow Margaret who issued "Specimens of Wood Engraving by Thomas and John Bewick" (Hugo, 4097) in 1798. By October 1800 she was trading as M. Angus & Son with Thomas Jr until his death in 1808, then with her second son George. She retired in December 1812 and George continued the business until 1825 when he was declared bankrupt and his stock was sold by auction. This volume also bears the bookplate of Joseph George Angus, with a note in pencil "This volume was given by Mr. Davison to Wm. H. Angus and by him to Jos. Geo. Angus." Tipped-in is a T.L.s from the librarian of Newcastle Public Library stating that their copy is also marked with the engraver's initial "exactly like your volume". Hugo, 298; Peter Isaac, Printing Historical Society facsimile, 1990.

        Peah-Mas-Ka: A Musquawkee Chief

      Philadelphia: E.C. Biddle, 1837. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 21.25" x 14.75". 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. Peah-mas-ka was a peaceful chief of the Sauk and Fox tribe, also known as the Musquawkee, whose ambushed death ignited a tribal war against the Menominee and the Sioux. Chipping and tears to edges, minor aging and offsetting. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        SKETCHES BY BOZ

      1837. illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People. Being a Continuation of "Watkins Tottle, and Other Sketches." Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard, 1837. Original drab boards with rose cloth spine and printed label. First American Edition, consisting of 1,250 copies issued in February 1837. These are the twelve pieces that had been published in England two months earlier as "The Second Series" of SKETCHES BY BOZ. (As is evident from this book's sub-title, this Philadelphia firm had published the ["First Series"] of SKETCHES BY BOZ as WATKINS TOTTLE and Other Sketches, nine months earlier.) Later in 1837, Carey Lea & Blanchard reprinted this volume, with the addition of "The Tuggs's at Ramsgate" and "The Pantomime of Life," under the title THE TUGGS'S AT RAMSGATE AND OTHER SKETCHES.~This is a very good copy (the lettering on the spine label is rubbed away, and the fore-corners show some wear, but this extremely fragile volume has held up very well for the past 175+ years). Podeschi (Yale) A9; Wilkins had seen only the later reprint but noted "there had evidently been an earlier issue...". Provenance: this copy was lot 7 in the renowned Kenyon Starling / William Self sale, with each's bookplate; there is also the earlier bookplate of George Abbot James. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        Grey Headed Wagtail. Motacilla neglects; (Gould)

      London 1837 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Grey Headed Wagtail. Motacilla neglects; (Gould), from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in excellent condition with light spotting. Measuring 21.5" x 14.5", this lithograph magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Grey Headed or Yellow Wagtails, these birds are expertly hand-colored with rich yellow-green backs, brown wings and vibrant yellow undersides. They stand out brightly against the pale and sparse background, being the main focal point of this dynamic lithograph. 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.

        Sha-Ha-Ka: A Mandan Chief

      Philadelphia: E.C. Biddle, 1837. unbound. very good. J.T. Bowen. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.25" x 14". 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. Sha-Ha-Ka was known for his friendship with the explorers Lewis and Clark who met him in the villages near the Missouri River in what is now North Dakota. The chief was persuaded to go to Washington D.C. with them where he was subsequently paraded around eastern cities as a typical savage from the Wild West. Overall toning and offsetting. Light scattered foxing and staining. Slight tape residue along top edge. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.
