        The Philosophy of Animal Magnetism, Together With the System of Manipulation Adopted to Produce Ecstacy and Somnambulism - the Effects and the Rationale

      Merrihew & Gunn, 1837, Hardcover (Printed Boards), Book Condition: Fair Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition. A GENTLEMAN OF PHILADELPHIA (Edgar Allan Poe?). The Philosophy of Animal Magnetism, Together With the System of Manipulation Adopted to Produce Ecstacy and Somnambulism - the Effects and the Rationale, Philadelphia: Merrihew & Gunn, 1837. 12mo, first edition, pp. 84, printed boards, ex-library with library bookplate on front pastedown, call numbers on copyright page. "Animal magnetism" here is a form of mesmerism, not a psychic thing but more like electricity, an invisible but real force that can be used to manipulate the human mind and body for the good. This book was attributed to Edgar Allan Poe in a 1928 book by Joseph Jackson, for which Jackson has received considerable blowback. It is scarce, unrecorded by any of Poe's major bibliographers or Worldcat. It is also an occult rarity, not known to Caillet. As for the Poe connection, I am agnostic. On the one hand, mesmerism was right in Poe's wheelhouse, and the pseudonym would have been typical of Poe. On the other, there really isn't any solid proof or testimony. Condition of this book: Internal staining and foxing, nothing offensive. Sticker ghosts and stains to boards. The binding is very weak, with the backstrip off, so repairs are probably necessary here -- buyer's choice. Size: 12mo. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; United States; 19th century; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 53296.

        Flora's Dictionary

      Fielding Lucas Jr., Baltimore, MD 1837 - 56 brilliantly handcolored floral plates, plus hand-colored title and presentation pages, for a total of 58 color plates. Wirt's Flora's Dictionary was issued in a confounding number of editions, each with a widely varying number of plates; this copy represents the maximum number of plates one will find of this work, as well as the finest hand-coloring applied to it. 4to. 26 by 20 cm. 136, 87 pp. (Excluding the plates from the page count.) Each plate comes with a protective tissue guard. The original, or contempoary, binding, with pictorial blindstamped imagery has rubbing along its joints, but remains highly attractive nonetheless with its gilt decoration on the spine, gilt ruling, etc. One plate has a tiny paper hole, not anywhere near the image. Otherwise, the plates and the multi-colored papers are clean. A beautiful copy overall.

        THE POSTHUMOUS PAPERS OF THE PICKWICK CLUB (FIRST BOOK EDITION, MIXED STATE]

      Carey, Lea & Blanchard, Philadelphia 1837 - [Charles Dickens]. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club: Containing a Faithful Record of the Perambulations, Perils, Adventures and Sporting Transactions of the Corresponding Members. Edited by "Boz." Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard, 1837. Mixed Set: FIRST AMERICAN EDITIONS of Volumes III, IV, and V. FOURTH EDITIONS of Volumes I and II. A Good, sound, unsophisticated set of the FIRST BOOK EDITION (preceded by the English first edition released in parts). IN THE ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S REDDISH-PURPLE CLOTH OVER DRAB BOARDS with white title labels on the spine lettered in black (largely legible but faded, in some cases to white]. Worn, a few stains, a little spine darkened, small chip out of the spine of Volume I, larger chip out of the spine of Volume IV. Contemporary owner's inscription to Volume I. Even a *mixed* set of this first book edition of Pickwick in original condition is quite desirable and exceedingly uncommon to find in commerce. The first issue of Volume I (by a then-unknown Dickens) was printed in a tiny edition of 1500 and clearly did not survive in any numbers which is why mixed sets tend to be the norm (when you can find one, that is). This preceded the English hardcover edition and thus has additional importance beyond just being its first appearance in the U.S. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Hunting the Buffaloe

      E.C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1837 - Hand-coloured lithograph heightened with gum arabic by J. T. Bowen after a painting by Peter Rindisbacher. In excellent condition apart from some light off-setting in the plate. 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. 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. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        War in Texas

      1837. First Edition . (TEXAS) (SLAVERY) [LUNDY, Benjamin]. The War in Texas; a Review of Facts and Circumstances, Showing that this Contest is a Crusade Against MexicoÂ… Philadelphia: Merrihew and Gunn, 1837. Octavo, early 20th-century half red cloth and drab boards, paper spine label, patterned endpapers. $1800.Second edition, revised and enlarged, of LundyÂ’s spirited anti-slavery argument protesting TexasÂ’ aggression against Mexico, “showing that this contest is a crusade against Mexico set on foot and supported by slaveholders, land speculators, etc., in order to re-establish, extend and perpetuate the system of slavery and the slave trade,” appearing only one year after the very scarce first edition. This second edition includes a wood-engraved reproduction of a map of Texas that originally appeared in the now very scarce “Gorostiza Pamphlet” of 1836 that represents “the earliest [map] of the republic of Texas” (Howes), not present in the first edition.Lundy (1789-1839), an ardent Quaker abolitionist, was “a pioneer in the organization of anti-slavery societies and in the publication of an anti-slavery newspaper [The Genius of Universal Emancipation], and was the most active figure in the whole movement during the twenties” (DAB). He spent years traveling in search of a location for freed slaves to settle, including areas of Texas then under control of Mexico, which led him to become a fierce opponent of Texas annexation. In this pamphlet he presents “arguments against the annexation of TexasÂ… [It] was one of the most vigorous of the writings to appear in that controversy.” Believing the annexation movement to be led by pro-slavery forces, Lundy “doubtless supplied John Quincy Adams with much of the information concerning the Texas situation which he used so effectively in his speeches to Congress.” “LundyÂ’s dialectics are fortified with careful personal observations gleaned from three trips to Texas in 1832, 1833, and 1834” (Raines, 141). “First to ascribe this war to a slave-holding conspiracy” (Howes). First published as a pamphlet in 1836, “This enlarged work first appeared in several successive numbers of the National Enquirer, a weekly anti-slavery paper” (Streeter). In this second edition the type has been entirely reset, and numerous changes and revisions occur after page 31, incorporating new material that had come to the authorÂ’s attention since the 1836 edition, such as a John Quincy AdamsÂ’ speech, abolition speeches, essays from contemporary newspapers, the Gorostiza Pamphlet (from which the map is taken), official Mexican protest against U.S. recognition of Texas independence, President JacksonÂ’s speech, etc. The map taken from the “Gorostiza Pamphlet” is “the earliest [map] of the republic of Texas” (Howes), and is a decidedly simple, sparse rendering focusing on the eastern boundary of Texas and the Gulf of Mexico only as far west as the Neches River. It shows the conventional boundary that starts at the Mermento River and runs north to the Red River and the “Boundary with U.S. by Treaty Feb. 1819” that follows the Sabine River and then north to the Red River. Lundy raises this point to show how Texas was scheming to expand its eastern boundary. Sabin 95134. Howes L569. Streeter 1217A. Old booksellersÂ’ descriptions, one tipped to front pastedown, one laid in.Foxing, a bit of soiling to title page and last few pages. A near-fine copy of this important and controversial pamphlet.

        Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians

      1837. First Edition . WILKINSON, John Gardner. Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians. London: John Murray, 1837. Three volumes. Octavo, original black cloth with gilt vignettes. $1850.First edition of this landmark study by “the founder of British Egyptology,” remarkably wide-ranging in its content and illustrated with 17 plates, five in color and three folding.Sir John Gardner Wilkinson “is said to have developed a taste for antiquities and sculpture at an early age, his childish pleasure being to see the plates published by the learned societies to which his father belonged” (DNB). As an adult, Wilkinson would come to be regarded “as the founder of British Egyptology, being a pioneer in the decipherment of hieroglyphs, the first to recognize several royal names and first to make detailed surveys of all the major sites in Egypt, single-handedly, and to make a complete plan of Thebes. His contribution was enormous” (Clayton, The Rediscovery of Ancient Egypt, 46). Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians endures as a “standard work” in the field: in it, “the statements of ancient writers about Egypt, together with the results of modern excavations and researches conducted by the author and others, were lucidly arranged, explained in a fascinating style, and richly illustrated with plans, engravings and coloured plates. WilkinsonÂ’s remarkable acquaintance with botany, zoology and the technique of the arts, together with his command of ancient literature, gave him unique qualifications for the treatment of this subject; and it was acknowledged that he had brought to light many new facts connected with Egyptian manners, history and religion. The work brought the author into general notice, both as a savant and as a popular writer; and on 26 Aug. 1839 a knighthood was conferred on him by MelbourneÂ’s administration in recognition of his services to literature, public attention having been previously called to the fact that his researches, unlike those of Champollion, Rosellini and others, had received no assistance from government” (DNB). The color plates in particular set WilkinsonÂ’s work apart: “Wilkinson published copies of [the art in royal tombs] in fine color illustrations that may be enjoyed today, not only as pictures of delightful ancient art that is no longer in such good condition, but also as exceptionally good examples of the book plates of their day” (Romer, 100, 101). Following the initial publication of Manners and Customs, “thousands upon thousands of travellers and scholars who visited the Valley [of the Kings] carried a copy. During the remainder of the century, ‘as Wilkinson saysÂ’ was one of the most popular refrains in the literature of Egyptian travel, and it is most appropriate that these travellers were guided through the tombs by the man who, perhaps more than any other, made ancient Egypt live again” (Romer, 102). Illustrated with numerous vignettes and 17 plates (five chromolithographs, three folding). Bookplate.Plates and text clean and fine. Volume I rebacked with original spine laid down; Volumes II and III with minor restoration to spine ends. Cloth clean, gilt bright. A very nice copy in the original cloth.

        QUILL PEN used by Queen Victoria to sign her 'Declaration against Popery' (1819-1901, Queen of Great Britain)]

      1837 - at the opening of the first new Parliament following her Accession, 14 inches between its tips, with its neat original slit, three-eighths of an inch long, to take the ink, the barbs trimmed close for ease of handling, attested on a strip of paper in his bold hand by F. Percival who was present, the attestation 2" x 15¼", [House of Lords, 20th November] the attestation rather worn, the pen's writing end has a narrow split without loss about 2 inches long, over half of it closed, parallel to the slit for the ink, otherwise in good condition. While the Coronation Oath, taken during the Coronation ceremony, includes maintaining "the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law", the "Declaration against Transubstantiation" and other Roman Catholic doctrines, popularly known as the "Declaration against Popery" or the "Declaration of the Sovereign", was the first action of the Monarch on opening their first new parliament. It preceded even the Royal Speech or "Address from the Throne". Queen Victoria's accession on 20th June 1837, under the then rules, necessitated a General Election (July-August). The new Parliament assembled on 15th November 1837 for swearing-in and other preliminary business. Then on the 20th the Queen met both Houses in the Lords, the Lord Chancellor, Lord Cottenham, administered the oath prescribed by the Statute of 1 William & Mary, "and Her Majesty did make, subscribe and audibly repeat the said Declaration" (Lords Journals). With a later typed note "this pen was given to Great Grandfather Percival who was present at the time". It is remarkable that, following the Roman Catholic Relief Act of 1829, the Sovereign was practically the only person required to make such a declaration. The old form was used up to and including Edward VII's accession. In 1910 George V was relieved of the necessity by a new form, declaring simply that he was "a faithful Protestant" and would "secure the Protestant Succession".

        A Voyage round the World; including an Embassy to Muscat and Siam, in 1835, 1836, and 1837. [together with:] ROBERTS, Edmund. Embassy to the Eastern Courts of Cochin-China, Siam, and Muscat; in the U.S. Sloop of War Peacock, David Geisinger, Commander, during the Years 1832–3–4.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard,[second work:] New York: Harper & Brothers, 1837-8 - 2 volumes, octavo (220 134 mm; 215 138 mm). Uniformly bound in black half morocco, title gilt to spine, flat bands sparingly tooled, marbled sides and endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Contemporary booklabels of P. C. Brooks, perhaps Peter Chardon Brooks, New England merchant and underwriter, who made his fortune in the East India trade. Very slight shelf-wear, both volumes with some foxing, but overall a very handsome pair. Half-title bound in to the first-named. First editions. Individually uncommon, perhaps Ruschenberger the more so, and together here offering a very full record of important early American trade negotiations in the Middle and Far East. A naval surgeon, "Ruschenberger sailed to the East for the purpose of obtaining information and negotiating and securing treaties of friendship and commerce with Eastern Powers. Rushenberger describes his journey to the dominions of the Sultan of Muscat and Oman, to Ceylon, India, Java. Siam, Cochin China, the Bonin Islands, the Hawaiian Islands, California, and Mexico" (Hill). The principal in the negotiations with these foreign powers was to be Edmund Roberts who had "formed an intimate acquaintance" with the Sultan of Oman when on a trading expedition to Zanzibar in 1827, and had persuaded his "kinsman through marriage, Senator Levi Woodbury [Andrew] Jackson's secretary of the navy" to promote the embassy (DAB). Roberts was appointed as special agent of the United States to negotiate treaties with Muscat, Siam, Cochin China and Japan if practicable; "his mission, however, was to be secret, and he was given as 'ostensible employment' the position of clerk" to Commander Geisinger. Roberts successfully concluded treaties with Siam, and with Muscat, which treaty included a "most-favoured-nation" clause, and remained the basis of US–Omani relations until 1958. He returned to the East to continue his work in Cochin China, China, and Japan, but died of fever at Macau in 1837. Although not noted in the title, Roberts contains around 120 pages of close description of the culture and business practices of China; Ruschenberger has a 75–page section specifically on "The dominions of the Sultan of Muscat;" and is also an important Hawaiian source, some of this material being omitted from the London edition of the same year, as also the "aspersions" of the British (noted by both Sabin and Howes). Forbes 1123; Hill p. 533; Howgego R33; Howes 514a; Sabin 74197 for the first-named: the latter, Cordier 2113; Forbes 1123; not in Hill; Howgego R19; not in Lust; Sabin 71884.
