        Visit to the Great Oasis of the Libyan Desert;

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman,, 1837. with an Account, Ancient and Modern, of the Oasis of Amun, and the other Oases now under the Dominion of the Pasha of Egypt. Octavo. Original dark green cloth panelled in blind, title gilt to the spine together with a large gilt block of a statue, upper board with gilt block of figures from a wall-relief. Lithographic frontispiece and 19 other plates after drawing by Hoskins, 3 of them folding, folding map at the rear. Overall a little bumped, hinges carefully repaired, cloth lightly restored, some damping to the endpapers, light browning, some foxing to the plates, off-setting from the map, but overall a very good copy. First edition. "Hoskins visited Egypt and Nubia in 1832-3. He became acquainted with Robert Hay, Francis Arundale, Frederick Catherwood, and Joseph Bonomi, and left a description of Hay's house at Qurna. Along with Bonomi, Hoskins accompanied Hay on his journey to Kharga Oasis" (Biographical introduction to the catalogue of The Water-colours and Drawings by George Alexander Hoskins in the Archive of the Griffith Institute, University of Oxford). This is one of two publications that resulted from his trip, "both are important as early published accounts in English of the regions and their monuments". Hoskins returned to England following the trip and trained as a barrister at the Inner Temple, "He was Secretary and Treasurer of the While Nile Association in 1839. He later travelled in Spain, writing 'Spain as it is', in 1851. His interest in the prison system led to further publications (1852-53) and comparison of the British system with that of Europe". In 1860-1 he returned to Egypt for his health, and in 1863 published a further book, 'A Winter in Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt' (1863). He died at Rome in the same year.

        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.

        The Posthumous Papers of The Pickwick Club

      London - Chapman and Hall, 1837 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition, early issue, of The Posthumous Papers of The Pickwick Club, commonly known as The Pickwick Papers. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and decoration. Bound from the Parts. With Forty-Three Plates. This edition has two 'Chapter III' headers. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, commonly known as The Pickwick Papers, was the first novel by Charles Dickens. Written for publication as a serial, The Pickwick Papers is a sequence of loosely-related adventures. Its main literary value and appeal is formed by its numerous memorable characters. Each character in The Pickwick Papers, as in many other Dickens novels, is drawn comically, often with exaggerated personalities. Condition: The binding is firm. The boards are held by the cords only, and could possibly detach in the post, even after careful packaging. Page 195 is detached. There is significant wear to the extremities, including significantbumping and rubbing, with the spine leatherdetached. Internally the pages have slight browning with intermittent scattered spots, prominent to the plates. Several of the page edgeshave been reinforced. Pages 191 to195 have several small closed tears. Overall the condition is fair only..

        AN ORATION DELIVERED BEFORE THE INHABITANTS OF THE TOWN OF NEWBURYPORT ... ANNIVERSARY OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

      Newburyport: Morss and Brewster, (1837). First Edition. wraps. Very Good and scarce. Original printed blue wrappers; 68 pages. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front blue wrapper: "Deacon Samuel Savile/from/John Quincy Adams." Books inscribed by Adams are quite uncommon, and when found are usually signed on a presentation slip pasted in rather than in the actual pamphlet or book as it is here. The first child of a president to become a president, the first president to be a published poet, and the first president to be photographed, Adams was certainly one of our most intelligent presidents and one of the greatest humanitarians to hold that office. He is also the only president to serve in Congress after leaving office and is perhaps best known for two accomplishments outside his term: the authorship of the Monroe Doctrine as secretary of state and his heroic, successful argument before the Supreme Court to free the Amistad slaves. This oration is of particular interest as it was given on 4 July 1837 to commemorate the 61st anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, a document his father was assigned to draft, though he left that task to Thomas Jefferson. Adams Sr. and Jefferson were the only presidents to sign the Declaration. In this speech Adams refers to the injustice of slavery several times connecting it to the promise of the Declaration of Independence and "a rule of right transcending all human power ... must lead to the extinction of slavery and of war from the earth." Adams and Savile were members of the First Congregational (Unitarian) Church in Braintree, Massachusetts.

        SKETCHES BY BOZ

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. TWENTY MONTHLY PARTS. Published from November 1837 through June 1839. In the original light pink printed wrappers. The "Sketches" had appeared in various journals and magazines as early as 1832 under the pen-name "Boz" a Dickens family nickname. The first book form as a "First Series" in two volumes was published in February 1836 with a "Second Series" in Decemeber 1836. Therefore, the issue of monthly numbers post-dated the book form unlike the publishing history of othert Dickens' novels. The first monthly issue coincided with the final installment of "Pickwick Papers". The pink wrappers all contain the front cover design by George Cruikshank. There are a total of 40 full-page plates drawn and etched by Cruikshank, two in each number. No imprint appears on the plates until the sixth number. This set is consistent and correct. All plates are toned around edges, occasional spotting within images. Numbers are discussed in following notes: Number 1 has a tipped-in catalogue listing for this copy. The issue is complete; Number 2 is complete with the very scarce "Address" dated November 30, 1837; Number 3 is complete with the very scarce MECHI'S CATALOGUE. The first page of the catalogue is torn at fore-edge with 3/4" piece missing. All Virtue ads are present but folded differently than the order in Hatton; Number 4 has ink name at top of front cover, several brown spots on rear cover; Number 5 is complete with the four-page "Proclamation" which is frequently missing; Number 6 has ink name at top of front cover, Chapman and Hall imprint begins to be included at bottom of plates; Number 7-12 complete without flaws; Number 13 has a small brown spot on the "Boarding House" plate; Number 14-17 complete with ink name on front cover of #15-16; Number 18 has a small bookseller's stamp on front cover; Number 19 has front cover supplied from Number 3 and rear cover from Number 6 of other copies; Number 20 has both covers supplied from another copy of Number 3. Three-inch closed tears rear cover of Numbers 19-20 with old tape repairs. Ink name rear cover of Number 20. First issue point on last page of Number 20 with "reeledbefore" run together on last page, 6 lines up. In summary, 18 of the 20 issues are complete and correct, containing all adverts, the announcement, and the proclamation, and the elusive Mechi's catalogue. A few spines have had archival-quality repairs. Housed in a full green morocco custom slipcase made by SANGORSKI AND SUTCLIFFE, spine panels, gilt lettering, spine gently mellowed to dark brown. This piece of Dickensiana rarely comes to auction, five times in 25 years It has appeared in only two dealer's catalogues nin the past 13 years. . We note 11 libraries world-wide listing it among their holdings. See Hatton and Cleaver pp. 91-128 and Eckels pp. 15-22. . New Edition. Pink Wrappers. General Light Edge Wear. Demy Octavo.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America

      Philadelphia: Edward C. Biddle (vol. I); Frederick W. Greenough (vol. II); Daniel Rice & James G. Clark (vol. III), 1837-1838-1844. 4 volumes, folio. (19 3/4 x 14 1/4 inches). 120 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Karl Bodmer, Charles Bird King, James Otto Lewis, P.Rhindesbacher and R.M.Sully, drawn on stone by A.Newsam, A. Hoffy, Ralph Trembley, Henry Dacre and others, printed and coloured by J.T. Bowen and others, vol.III with two lithographic maps and one table printed recto of one leaf, 17pp. of lithographic facsimile signatures of the original subscribers. Extra- illustrated with the original front and rear wrappers to each of the 20 original parts, here bound together as a fourth volume. Expertly bound to style in half black morocco over period cloth covered boards, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, lettered in the second and fourth the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. First edition of "one of the most costly and 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, including some of the greatest American hand-coloured lithographs of the 19th century. This copy with a complete set of the very rare original wrappers, here uniformly bound as a fourth volume. 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 1839, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer and, from 1833, Cincinnati banker who had written extensively about the west. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures amongst the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the North American Indians. The work is now famous for its colour plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors and squaws of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates) or worked up by King from the watercolours of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. All but four of the original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865 so their appearance in this work preserves what is probably the best likeness of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to date, and its publishing history is extremely complex. The title pages give an indication of issue and are relatively simple: volume I, first issue was by Edward C. Biddle and is dated 1836 or more usually 1837, the second issue Frederick W. Greenough with the date 1838, and the third issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark dated 1842. Volume II, first issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838 and the second issue by Rice & Clark and dated 1842. Volume III, first issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1844. Copies of the work with their original wrappers are of the utmost scarcity and seldom found.

        Practical Remarks on Infant Education,

      for the Use of Schools and Private Families, First Edition, iv, 105, 6pp 8vo, a very good copy in original cloth, London, Home and Colonial Infant School Society, 1837. On his return from Pestalozzi's school at Yverdon Dr. Charles Mayo had opened, at Epsom in August 1822, a school for the sons of the upper classes. Run on Pestalozzian lines, it made the alternation of school work with periods of play one of its main features. Mayo moved to Cheam in the autumn of 1826... Assisted by his sister Elizabeth...Mayo made the school the most famous of all Pestalozzian institutions in England. "In bringing Pestalozzi's theories to this country, however, Mayo made certain adaptations. In his preface to Lessons on Objects he pointed out that he had preserved the idea but adapted the form to circumstances. In this he had the backing of Pestalozzi himself who had great faith in what he took to be the English combination of exalted sentiments and practical good sense, and told Mayo, on the latter's departure from Yverdon, that he believed it would be in England that his views would be fully realized. "Examine any method," he urged Mayo, "adopt what you find to be good and reject what you cannot approve." Mayo emphasized Pestalozzi's theory of the harmonious development of the moral, intellectual and physical features of the child, and his view that education was a process of progressive development in accordance with the child's own nature and ordered psychological principles. He contrasted his with current methods of teaching in England, the soulless presentation of facts, founded on "abstract scientific considerations of the knowledge to be conveyed," and the placing of theoretical elements of the sciences before children without regard to the latter's stage of development. - Stewart & McCann, Educational Innovators, p.169-70.

        Notice sur le Maclure Orangé, lue à la Société Royale d'Agriculture. Histoire naturelle et Arts utiles de Lyon, décembre 1835, et imprimée par ordre de cette compagnie - COPY SIGNED by Seringe to Fee

      Lyo, Imprimerie J.M. Barret 1837 In-8° broché, 15 pages. Une très grande planche hors-texte dépliante en couleurs - Bel envoi autographe de l auteur au Professeur Fee. Antoine Laurent Apollinaire Fée est un botaniste français, né le 7 novembre 1789 à Ardentes et mort le 21 mai 1874 à Paris. Antoine Fée est pharmacien sous-aide-major en 1809 et participe à la campagne d'Espagne. Il finit son service avec le rang d'aide-major. Il entre comme pharmacien à l'école de Strasbourg en 1815. Il rencontre en 1823, le botaniste Christiaan Hendrik Persoon (1755-1837), qui exercera sur lui une grande impression. En 1824, il devient membre titulaire de l'Académie de médecine. En 1825, il est démonstrateur à l'hôpital militaire de Lille puis, en 1828, pharmacien-major. Fée enseigne la botanique à Strasbourg de 1832 à 1867 où il remplace Christian Gottfried Nestler (de) (1778-1832). Il dirige également, à partir de cette date, le jardin botanique. La thèse qu'il présente pour l'obtention de cette chaire a pour titre De la Reproduction des végétaux (F.-G. Levrault, Strasbourg, 1833). Il obtient, le 14 mai 1833, le titre de docteur en médecine avec une thèse intitulée Examen de la théorie des rapports botanico-chimiques. Il s'installe à Paris après 1871. Il dirige la Société botanique de France en 1874.Il réédite le Systema naturae de Carl von Linné (1707-1778) à Paris en 1830 (chez F.-G. Levrault) et fait paraître une Vie de Linné, rédigée sur les documents autographes laissés par ce grand homme et suivie de l'analyse de sa correspondance avec les principaux naturalistes de son époque toujours à Paris en 1832 (chez F.-G. Levrault). Il s'intéresse aux premiers botanistes et fait paraître la Flore de Virgile (N.E. Lemaire, 1835), la Flore de Théocrite et des autres bucoliques grecs (Firmin-Didot frères, Paris, 1832), les Commentaires sur la botanique et la matière médicale de Pline (C.-L.-F. Panckoucke, Paris, 1833). L'oranger des Osages (Maclura pomifera = Maclura aurantiaca) est (comme le mûrier, apparemment son plus proche parent) un arbre de la famille des Moraceae, unique espèce du genre Maclura. Cette plante est également connue sous les synonymes suivants : maclure épineux, bois d'arc. C'est une espèce dioïque d'arbre ou d'arbuste épineux à feuilles caduques. Les pieds femelles produisent des fruits verts de la taille d'une orange. En fait, il ne s'agit pas d'un véritable fruit mais (comme pour la figue) d'une infrutescence, c'est-à-dire, d'une agglomération d'un ensemble d'akènes issus d'une multitude de fleurs. L'intérieur du fruit est blanc, compact, homogène avec de petits pépins marron foncé. Le fruit exhale un parfum citronné légèrement épicé. Le botaniste américain Thomas Nuttall (1786-1859) lui donna son nom générique en y ajoutant aurantiaca qui veut dire orangé. Mentionné par William Dunbar et George Hunter en 1804 lors de leur voyage dans le bassin du Mississippi. Cette espèce fut introduite en France en 1812 pour son feuillage proche de celui du mûrier et dont on pensait faire la nourriture des vers à soie dans les régions trop froides pour la culture du mûrier, car l'espèce est rustique et fructifie jusque sous le climat de Paris. Ces essais furent vite abandonnés et on ne le planta plus guère que pour l'ornement. Le nom commun vient de la tribu indienne des Osages, qui occupait la zone où pousse cet arbre. Il est originaire d'Amérique du Nord et plus précisément du sud-est de l'Oklahoma, du Sud-Ouest de l'Arkansas et du nord-est du Texas. On le trouve aussi dans le Missouri, proche du Mississippi. Il n'est jamais très abondant. Il est planté comme arbre d'ornement et de collection en zone tempérée. On en trouve dans des parcs tels que le jardin du Luxembourg, le jardin des Buttes-Chaumont, le parc de Bagatelle et le parc floral à Paris, le parc de Sceaux dans les Hauts-de-Seine, le parc de la Tête d'Or à Lyon ou encore à Bordeaux, au jardin de la Béchade, propriété du centre hospitalier Charles-Perrens et place Gambetta. Le fruit n'est pas comestible Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        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.
