        HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES AND ANECDOTES OF THE PRINCIPAL CHIEFS. EMBELLISHED WITH ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY PORTRAITS FROM THE INDIAN GALLERY IN THE DEPARTMENT OF WAR, AT WASHINGTON

      Philadelphia: Edward C. Biddle (Vol. I); Frederick W. Greenough (Vol. II); Daniel Rice & James G. Clark (Vol. III), 1837-1838-1844.. Four volumes. 120 handcolored 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 colored by J.T. Bowen and others; Vol. III with two lithographic maps and one table printed on 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 twenty original parts, here bound together as a fourth volume. Folio. Expertly bound to style in half black morocco over period cloth covered boards, spines gilt. Very good. 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 handcolored 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 American Indian 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 American Indian 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 a 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 color 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 watercolors 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 titlepages 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 is by 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 is 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. BAL 6934. BENNETT, p.79. FIELD 992. HOWES M129. LIPPERHEIDE Mc4.

        Little Tern, Sterna minuta: (Linn)

      London 1837 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Little Tern, Sterna minuta (Linn), from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in excellent condition. Measuring 14" x 21", this lithograph magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. These seabirds are expertly hand-colored with white bodies and gray backs and wings and a black stripe and hood through the eye to the nape. Precise lines define and detail each feather and create the intricate patters on their backs. In the beginning of the 19th century the Little Tern was a common bird of European shores, rivers and wetlands. However in the 20th century, populations of coastal areas decreased because of habitat loss, pollution and human disturbance. 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.

        Remarks on Military Law and the Punishment of Flogging

      1837. Napier, Sir Charles James [1782-1853]. Remarks on Military Law and the Punishment of Flogging. London: T. & W. Boone, 1837. [iv], xii, 276 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards, expertly rebacked, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine. Light rubbing to extremities, corners bumped and lightly worn, bookplate of Henry D. Byng to front pastedown, light toning to interior. "To the Honb.l Mr. Byng from h[is] old and sincere friend the author" to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. Sir Charles James Napier played a legendary role as military commander in the pacification of India. The present work was written upon his return from service in Cephalonia, then under British control, where Napier formed a strong relationship with Byron, and became a strong advocate of reform. The present work is a somewhat conservative but balanced treatment that insists on the necessary differences between social and military law and the absolute importance of keeping them separate, both in Parliament and on the streets. Napier accepts harsh procedure in war, but abhors it in civilian circumstances. At the same time he criticizes many aspects of military law, showing particular concern for better treatment of the private soldier. His humanitarian, indeed democratic, instincts are even more in evidence in his compassion for the lives of ordinary soldiers and their families. The recipient is probably Sir John Byng [1772-1860], Earl of Stratford, MP for Poole in Dorset 1831-1835. On the front pastedown is the signature of Maria Jane Byng (daughter? Sir John's second wife was Marianne James Byng), also a later 19th century book label of Henry D. Byng. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 18:256.

        War Dance of the Sauks and Foxes

      On stone by Corbould from a painting by P. Rindisbacher. Printed by C. Hullmandel. London: Published by Campbell and Burns, 1837. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition, skilfully repaired 2" tear at left. 8 3/4 x 14 1/2 inches. 12 x 19 1/8 inches. From the extremely rare London edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America," unrecorded at auction for the last 25 years, and printed by the famous London lithographer Hullmandel. 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 the 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.

A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' of an eminent Cherokee leader, who encouraged his people to adopt elements of white culture to preserve their homeland, and later accepted removal to Arkansas where he was killed by fellow Cherokees. Major Ridge, Nunna Hidihi in Cherokee (c. 1770-1839) was a famous Cherokee orator, who, realizing its inevitability, encouraged his people to accept removal to Arkansas. He, his son, John, and Elias Boudinot, his nephew, were leaders of the Treaty Party. Once in Arkansas all three were killed by their opponents. The rank of Major was conferred by General Jackson during the Creek War (1813-14). On the other hand, it was Jackson who, as President, refused to enforce the Supreme Court's ruling upholding of the Cherokee claims to their property. 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, Cornplanter, and Osceola. 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 1829, 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.

        SECOND AND LAST ASCENT OF THE VAUXHALL BALLOON, previously to its return to England. The last ascent of the celebrated Vauxhall and Nassau balloon will take place, as before, at the Rue du Faubourg Poissonniere at one o'clock, next Monday, January 9, 1837 . to be conducted by Mr. Green being his 228th ascent.

      Printed by Julius Didot, Senior, 4 boulevard d'Enfer, [Paris]. 1837 - Folio broadside, 10 x 16.5 inches, black letterpress on yellow stock, utilizing some strikingly original typefaces and decorative initials and embellishments. Five centime tax stamp in black. Remarkably well-preserved with only faint creasing at two corners. A fine example. Rare. The poster includes details of the balloon's history and performance, and information about the forthcoming ascent. Charles Green (1785-1870) was the United Kingdom's most famous balloonist of the 19th century. He experimented with coal gas as a cheaper and more readily available alternative to hydrogen for lifting power. His first ascent was in a coal gas balloon on 19 July 1821. He became a professional balloonist and had made 200 ascents by 1835. In 1836 he constructed the Great Nassau balloon for Gye and Hughes, proprietors of Vauxhall Gardens, from whom he subsequently purchased it for 500 pounds. The Vauxhall Gardens had its own gas lighting and from the early 1830s regularly promoted balloon flights with coal gas for inflation. After a number of ascents Green took off on his historic flight, accompanied by Robert Hollond, M.P. for Hastings, and Monck Mason. They left Vauxhall Gardens at 1:30 p.m. on 7 November 1836, and, crossing the channel from Dover the same evening, descended the next day, at 7 a.m. at Weilburg in Nassau, Germany, having travelled altogether about five hundred miles in eighteen hours. This journey was celebrated in a painting by John Hollins, now in the National Portrait Gallery in London. The quality and style of printing is quite advanced and employs, among others, an unusual font where the top halves of the letters (all caps.) are angled, either to the right or left, from the perpendicular of the bottom halves.

        THE POSTHUMOUS PAPERS OF THE PICKWICK CLUB

      1837. With Forty-Three Illustrations, by R. Seymour and Phiz. London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. Bound in full red morocco, gilt-decorated covers and spine, all page edges gilt. First Edition in book form, of which this is an EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED COPY. PICKWICK PAPERS first appeared in 20-in-19 monthly parts from April 1836 through November 1837 (excepting June 1837), and was then published in book form (as here) in November 1837. Included were 43 plates, by Seymour and Buss at the beginning and by "Phiz" (Hablot K. Browne) for the rest. This copy has most of these plates in duplicate -- with one plate carrying the title of the plate, and the other carrying the page number (for placement in the volume). Since the Pickwick plates were re-etched, with minor variations, during the course of the early issues, these duplicate plates provide the ability to compare and contrast.~In addition: Interleaved in this volume are plates by Sir John Gilbert that accompanied the publication of the "Cheap Edition" of PICKWICK. In addition: Also interleaved are plates by A. B. Frost that appeared in the 1881 edition of PICKWICK that was published by Ward Lock (these plates were subsequently published as a separate portfolio in 1908). In addition: bound in at the end of the volume (somewhat trimmed down) are the engraved title page plus fifteen other plates of THE PICKWICKIAN, by W. Heath, published separately (serially) in 1837 -- prior to book publication. In all, quite a remarkably extra-illustrated volume -- the leaves alone bulk over two inches.~The volume is bound by Bayntun in full red morocco, with both covers and the spine decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. Condition is very good (front joint chafed). Smith I pp 17-27.

        Hunting the Buffaloe

      Philadelphia: E.C. Biddle, 1837. Hand-coloured lithograph heightened with gum arabic by J. T. Bowen after a painting by Peter Rindisbacher. In excellent condition.15 1/2 x 10 inches. 12 3/4 x 18 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. This exciting scene is based on a painting by Peter Rindisbacher, a Swiss artist, who visited America between 1821 and 26. He lived at Lord Selkirk's Red River colony where he made a series of artistic studies of Native American life. 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.

        A Treatise on Bread or Bread-making

      Boston: Light & Stearns 1 Cornhill, 1837. 9.5x15cm. [2], [3]-131 pages + 12 ads. First edition. Sylvester Graham began his career as a temperance reformer but soon expanded his efforts to control the affairs of the stomach to beyond alcohol. Against the backdrop of fear that the European cholera epidemic would soon arrive on American shores, Graham developed a theory of healthy living which included well-ventilated rooms, exercise, and regular baths, as well as a vegetarian diet. The diet consisted mostly of fruits and vegetables and bread from unbolted flour or coarse ground grain. Graham had other, more controversial, theories as well, about sexual self-restraint and the connection between spirituality and physiology. His lectures frequently caused a commotion, including an 1847 altercation during which "a mob of Boston bakers attacked Graham while he was extemporizing on the evils of consuming commercially produced bread and the dietary value of unbolted flour. The riotous bakers were subdued when Graham's followers shoveled slaked lime from the windows of the lecture hall onto the crowd below." (American National Biography). But it is for the Graham cracker, loosely based on his bread from coarsely-ground grain, for which he is best remembered today. Previous owners' names to front end papers, some light foxing throughout, a few tiny pin holes to patterned, gilt-titled brown cloth, otherwise fine. A truly lovely example of a scarce title.
