        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.

        Celeste as the Maid of Cashmere

      Celeste as the Maid of Cashmere. [London: Hodgson and Graves, November, 1837]. After a painting by E.T. Parris; Lithographed by A. Dick. Octagonal 8 x 15" (plate size), 8 1/2 x 17 1/2" (sheet size). Original lithograph on paper. Mounted on stiff paper, trimmed to 1/4" of left margin, lacking publisher's logo at bottom. Beautifully framed. Mademe Celeste, (Anastasie Celeste des Rousselles. b. 1810, Marcilly-la-Campagne, France; d. 1882, Paris). According to Nancy Reynolds, Celeste's "great popularity rested mainly on her eloquent performances in melodrama, in which she was particularly noted for her command of gesture." Although criticized by Binney as a popular but not a "professional" dancer, Celeste, according to Parmenia Migel, performed valiantly all through Europe and was "the most beloved performer ever to tour the United States... and had the distinction of being America's first Sylphide." One of the most famous episodes of dance in 19th century America, and subject of several satirical engravings, was when Celeste in 1836 was presented to President Andrew Jackson in his chambers for a private performance.

        MEMORIALS OF TRINITY COLLEGE, OXFORD.

      John Parker, London 1837 - Rev. James Ingram.MEMORIALS OF TRINITY COLLEGE, OXFORD. WITH ENGRAVINGS ON STEEL BY J. LE KEUX, from Drawings by F. Mackenzie 1837;Published: byJohn Henry Parker 1837 in London;- 3 volumes; Stunningly re-bound in three quarter tan leather, with marbled paper. 2 labels to each of the three spines with gilt lettering within. All the Plates are present in this Scarce and Rare collection. The 3 volumes are dedicated to Arthur, Duke of Wellington, Chancellor of the University by the Author. No other copies can be found on the world wide web; Very fine 3 volumes set of highly collectable, & scarce books.The 'Memorials of Oxford' were compiled by James Ingram between 1833 and 1837 and have always been held in high regard, not only for the energetic research and critical observations of the author, but also for the three hundred illustrations contained therein. These include many fine engravings produced by John Le Keux from the original drawings of the painter and architectural daughtsman Frederick Mackenzie.The attraction of many early Victorian local histories lies in the account of those buildings, customs, and social attitudes that have been lost since the time that they were written. This new edition makes such information available to the modern reader. The text is that of the first edition and the original spellings and punctuation have been retained. The opportunity has been taken to remove the repeated sectional numbering of the pages; to provide an index, and to place the lengthy footnotes at the end of each chapter. The many drawings and plates may speak for themselves and every effort has been made to match the clarity of the originals.Volume One: CollegesChrist Church, University, Balliol, Merton, Exeter, Oriel, Queen's, New, Lincoln, All Souls'. Volume Two: Colleges, Halls, etc.Magdalen, Brasenose, Corpus Christi, Trinity, St John's, Jesus, Wadham, Pembroke,Worcester, St Mary Hall, Magdalene Hall, St. Alban Hall, St. Edmund Hall, The Bodleian Library, The Schools.Volume Three: History, Churches, etc.General History, Oxford Castle, The University Press, The Observatory, The Ashmolean Museum, The Radcliffe Library, The Botanic Garden,St. Peter's, St. Mary theVirgin, St. Michael's, St. Martin's, St. Peter's,St. Aldate's, St. Ebbe's, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Giles, Holywell,St. Clement's. St. Thomas, Iffley ChurchThe AuthorJames Ingram was born in Warminster in 1774 and educated at Winchester and Trinity College, Oxford, where he became a Fellow and elected as President in 1824.He was appointed the Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon in the University; a Master of the Examination Schools; Keeper of the Archives; and a member of the Society of Antiquaries. He was considered a fine Anglo-Saxon scholar but is mainly remembered for his 'Memorials of Oxford' issued in three volumes between 1832 and 1837 and in two volumes in 1847. He was married but died childless in Sept 1850 and was buried at Garsington. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition bound from parts, early issue with the plates in early states (with page location and without title page or imprints), Buss plates present at pages 69 and 74 , and the engraved title page sign stating "Veller"), and the following textual points: p.26 headline printed "POSTHUMOUS PAPERS, &c.", p.328 type is loose in headline of &#39;POSTHUMOUS&#39;; p.553 9 lines up &#39;considdring&#39; for &#39;considering&#39;.
