        Giannetto opera che ottenne dalla Società fiorentina dell?istruzione elementare il premio promesso all?Autore del più bel libro di lettura morale ad uso de? fanciulli.

      Como, Pietro Ostinelli, 1837. PRIMA EDIZIONE molto rara. Tre volumi in 16mo (vol. I e III cm. 18; vol. II cm. 16,5); il primo ed il terzo volume sono in brossura editoriale stampata ed intonsi con barbe (manca il piatto anteriore del III vol.), mentre il secondo volume è rilegato in mezza pelle dell?epoca con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, piatti in carta colorata con cornice in oro; pp. XVI, 196 + antiporta incisa, pp. (4), 247, (5) + pp. VII, (1 bianca), 341, (15, di cui 2 bianche). L?antiporta del secondo volume è protetta da velina e rappresenta un fiore di giglio, un ramo di prezzemolo ed uno di cicuta. A parte alcune lievi ingialliture e fioriture sparse (più forti nel secondo volume), buona copia conservata entro astuccio di cartone marmorizzato e camicie in mezza pelle rossa recanti il titolo dell?opera in oro sui dorsi. L?opera si compone di cinque parti. La prima riguarda l?uomo sia da un punto di vista anatomico che da un punto di vista comportamentale. La seconda parte tratta dei mestieri, delle arti e delle scienze. La terza riguarda la terra da un punto di vista geografico e naturalistico. La quarta riporta esempi quotidiani di virtù ad istruzione dei fanciulli. La quinta e ultima parte, divisa a sua volta in ventisette giornate, narra episodi patriottici e ?morali? tratti dalla storia italiana, dai re di Roma a Napoleone Bonaparte. L. A. Parravicini, pedagogista seguace di A. Rosmini e di J. H. Pestalozzi, fu direttore scolastico a Como e a Venezia, dopo un?esperienza come direttore di corsi di metodo nel Canton Ticino, che gli ispirarono un interessante Manuale di pedagogia e di didattica (1842-45). La sua fama è tuttavia soprattutto legata al Giannetto, vero e proprio best-seller per ragazzi dell?epoca. Lo stesso Collodi si occupò di modernizzare e migliorare l?opera e nel 1876 diede alle stampe la sua revisione intitolata Giannettino. Axs

        Travels in Circassia, Krim-Tartary, &c. including a steam voyage down the Danube, from Vienna to Constantinople, and round the Black Sea, in 1836.

      Henry Colburn 1837. 2 volumes complete. pp. xxxviii., 356 & xiv., 425. Some scattered foxing, mostly near the plates. Half titles present. The large folding map is crisp and clean, although this is probably because it has been laid down some time ago, and may well have been cleaned. The old tear and a couple of small areas of loss ( around the Great Kabardia area ), are pretty unobtrusive. In a mid c19th brown half calf, with black morocco title and volume labels. The marbled paper on the boards is rubbed, and is the binding in places. This is a nice solid set, of the uncommon first edition. Circassia historic region, encompassing roughly the area between the Black Sea, the Kuban River, and the Caucasus, now largely the Krasnodar Territory of SE European Russia. The Circassians are a Muslim people, whose Russian name is Cherkess and whose native name is Adygey. They are now officially classified as three peoples: the Kabarda, in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic; the Circassians or Cherkess, in the Karachay-Cherkess Republic; and the Adygey, in the Adygey Republic. The term Circassian has sometimes been incorrectly applied to all the mountain peoples of the N Caucasus. Known in antiquity, they inhabited the western side of the Caucasus and the Crimea and were known to the Greeks as the Zyukhoy. They were Christianized in the 6th cent. a.d. but adopted Islam in the 17th cent. after coming under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. In 1829 the Ottoman Turks were forced to cede Circassia to Russia. At this time the Circassians occupied almost the entire area between the main Caucasian range, the Kuban River, and the Black Sea. In the many Russo-Turkish wars in the first half of the 19th cent., the Circassians bitterly fought the Russians. After the Russian conquest of the area, about 400,000 Circassians migrated to Turkey (1861-64). Circassian women were reputed to be great beauties, and many were sold into slavery in Turkey. There are today large Circassian groups in Turkey, Syria, and Jordan. (with thanks to The Columbia Encyclopedia) 106a

        The Naval History of Great Britain,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1837. From the Declaration of War by France in 1793, to the Accession of George IV. A New Edition, with Considerable Additions and Notes, and an Account of the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino. 6 volumes, octavo (215 × 132 mm), recently finely bound in navy blue full calf, double red morocco labels, raised bands, three-master devices gilt in compartments, single gilt fillet panel to the boards. 24 portraits, 38 battle-plans in the text, 28 folding tables. Some foxing and browning, as usual, otherwise very good, a handsome set. TR NAV A "monument of accuracy - it has stood the test of time and remains the best account of the naval side of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars" (Kemp, The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, p. 425). First conceived of when he was held prisoner in America during the War of 1812 the Naval History is a remarkable work. Working under the motto "Verité sans Peur", James set himself standards of inclusiveness and accuracy extraordinary for the 19th century. His aim was to compile "... an exact account of every operation of naval war during the period named. He consulted not only published works, especially the official narratives, both British and French, but also the logs of the ships, and, whenever possible, the participants themselves" (ODNB). Successively mined by Forester and O'Brian for incident and colour, this well-written history is not only essential reference for the period, but makes excellent reading.

        Ca-Ta-He-Cas-Sa: Black Hoof Principal Chief of the Shawannes

      E. C. Biddle Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1837. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19" x 13". 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. Ca-Ta-He-Cas-Sa was a highly respected chief of a large Ohio tribe who though a great warrior, kept his word of peace after signing a treaty in 1795. There is an original crease in the paper across the subject's jacket. Overall toning and offsetting. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits.

        [Herrans Bön Fader Vår]

      [Stockholm] [Norstedt & Söner] [1837] Folio. Plate mark 38 x 29,5 cm. Margins included 43,5 x 34 cm. 10 engraved plates illustrating the Lord´s Prayer. Text not present. Left outer margins with residue of glue and paper from passe partout. Some left margins chipped. Three plates with a tear in the margin. A couple of stains in the margins to a couple of plates. A few corner creased. One plate with loss the size of a pin hole in the top margin. The first plate with a large stain in upper corner and left margin a bit in to the image. The right margin of the first plate partly damaged with some paper loss. Image areas in fine condition.. Ten engravings originally published in 1803 by the famous swedish artist Elias Martin. This is the second edition published in 1837. Martin spent many years as an artist in London. When he returned to Sweden he became an important representative of the english art ideals. This, his last work, was harshly criticized by his contemporaries who thougt he had lost his mind in his old age. The work has a fantasy or New Age feeling to it. In later years the work has been more appreciated for its originality. The character of the plates are quite appealing to the present time and age. The first edition came with a small booklet describing the plates. The second edition had the description written inside the wrapper in which the plates were issued. The wrapper with the description is not present. Scarce

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

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1837. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after a portrait by George Cooke done in 1837. In excellent condition. 13 1/8 x 10 1/2 inches. 18 x 12 3/4 inches. 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.
