        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.

        Voyages up the Mediterranean and in the Indian Seas; with Memoirs, compiled from the Logs and Letters of a Midshipman. Embellished with Engravings from Original Drawings.

      London: James Fraser, 1837 - Octavo (194 × 116 mm). Original black morocco by Fraser of Regent Street, title gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards, all edges gilt, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed at the extremities, neatly recased, head and tail of the spine repaired, ink ownership stamp of the Deacon Grant Farm to the front free endpaper, light toning, a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece on India paper, mounted, and 6 other similar plates, including a portrait of the author. First edition, an uncommon - five copies on COPAC, OCLC adds just four more, Singapore National Library, Duke, NYPL, and the Providence Athenaeum - and highly attractive work. A contemporary review from the The Literary Gazette and Journal of the Belles Lettres, Arts, Sciences, &c tells of the genesis of the work, and gives a flavour of it; "This is a volume of peculiar interest; the original matter possessing the charm of ingenuousness and genuineness rarely met with in observation on foreign parts 'This volume,' says the advertisement prefixed, 'is faithfully compiled from the logs and letters of the midshipman whose memoirs it professes to preserve. Mr. William Robinson was an enthusiast in his profession, and, at an early age, fell a martyr to his zeal His career, though brief, was honourable; and he yet lives in the influence which his memory continues to exercise, over those who shared with him the adventures of a naval life. The present work was projected to perpetuate the benefit of his example; and the editor has aimed at no meaner end than to make it, so far as he had ability, a manual for the conduct of a sailor who would rise in the noble profession of his choice.'" Robinson had been intended for the law, but ill health forced a change of plan, and he was placed as a middie on board the Adventure with Capt. W. H. Smyth, a friend of his father's, taking part in Smyth's surveys in the Mediterranean. Following Robinson's death from dysentery in Singapore, his papers were edited with Smyth's assistance "recording for the benefit of naval aspirants, his private virtues and professional merits." The plates, finely engraved by W. Faithorn after Robinson's own drawings include views of the Naval Yard at Trincomalee and the bridge at Singapore. [Attributes: First Edition]

        French Revolution: A History

      1837. First Edition . (FRENCH REVOLUTION) CARLYLE, Thomas. The French Revolution: A History. London: James Fraser, 1837. Three volumes. Octavo, early 20th-century full tan calf gilt, gilt armorial centerpieces, raised bands, brown morocco spine labels. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase. $4500.First edition of this classic history of the French Revolution, a major influence on DickensÂ’ Tale of Two Cities, handsomely bound in calf-gilt by Henderson & Bisset of Edinburgh.“Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular ‘tract for the timesÂ’ and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracyÂ… The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colorful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leading revolutionaries. The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, molded popular conception of the French Revolution down to the present day” (PMM 304). Carlyle himself triumphantly declared upon the completion of this work, “You have not had for a hundred years any book that comes more direct and flamingly from the heart of a living man” (DNB). Bound with half titles. Interiors clean; a touch of rubbing to joints, expert reinforcement to inner hinges of Volume I. An about-fine and handsome set of this increasingly scarce first edition.

        COURONNE DE FLORE Mélanges De Poésie Et De Prose.

      Paris: Louis Janet n.d. ( ca. 1837). A beautifully hand-colored edition of a very scarce book - this version rare, indeed.   This "gift book" was offered by its publisher to accompany a rare series of coloured lithographs entitled LA NAISSANCE DES FLEURS. It comprises brief essays and poetry on individual flowers by early nineteenth century French women writers  - and Jules Baget and Mrs. Hemans -  and is embellished with four exquisitely hand watercoloured lithographed plates from drawings by Pierre Joseph Redouté, Lucy de Beaurepaire, Olympe Arson and Jules Dumas. A. Roulliet was the lithographer.  The selection opens with Jules Baget's poem entitled "La Naissance Des Fleurs" in which he praises artists, Redouté in particular, for their ability to preserve the fleeting beauty of flowers by their art. Madame La Comtesse de Brade writes on the history and lore of the tulip, the violet, the apple and the lily, while other contributors offer poems to individual flowers. Each water-coloured lithographed plate marks a season represented by a flower or flower bouquet surrounded by a decoratively printed hand- coloured border. The lettering of the title page is also hand-coloured.  In 1837, Fleury Chavant published LA COURRONE DE FLORE (Vicaire p. 1044) which resembles this title in every respect but for the publisher, and the title page. Fleury Chavant's ads for lithographic work, noting this title, are included at the end of the text. In the Fleury Chavant imprint, the title page informs the reader that the book is designed to accompany LA NAISSANCE DES FLEURS, a series of 50 sheets imprinted with designs of flower drawings and poetry, but this is an elusive piece noted only as "original art " in Bnf. As Louis Janet was famous for his production of gift books, we surmise this was an initial effort to produce one from the Fleury Chavant plates lithographed in blue. The plain silk-paper over boards binding here could possibly have been prepared for a decorative slipcover or box. We have located no copies with the Janet imprint in OCLC, COPAC, the European Catalogue or CCFr.  18 mo (16.4 x 10.5 cm);143 pp with hand-coloring on half title and title page;7 pp. ads included, all text printed in blue ink, with blue printed borders +4 hand-colored full page lithographed illustrations with tissue guards. Original cream silk-covered paper over boards, without impression, with very small tear at spine head mended, light hand-soiling a.e.g; moire patterned endpapers; light to moderate foxing throughout, but plates unblemished. .

Thick octavo, early 20th-century full green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4200.First book edition, mixed first and early issue, of one of Dickens’ greatest works, with 43 illustrations by Seymour and Phiz, extra-illustrated with a complete suite of 32 engraved plates, most by Thomas Onwyn (who has signed many of the plates as ""Sam Weller""), handsomely bound in full morocco-gilt by Zaehnsdorf.""From a literary standpoint the supremacy of this book has been… firmly established… It was written by Dickens when he was twenty-four and its publication placed the author on a solid foundation from which he never was removed…. It is quite probable that only Shakespeare's Works, the Bible and perhaps the English Prayer Book, exceed ""Pickwick Papers"" in circulation"" (Eckel, 17). ""Never was a book received with more rapturous enthusiasm than that which greeted the Pickwick Papers!"" (Allibone I:500). Pickwick would be the first volume in which Dickens was acknowledged as the author, rather than using his pen name, ""Boz."" With 43 illustrations by R. Seymour and Phiz, including frontispiece and vignette title page, and the scarce suppressed plates by Buss (at pages 69 and 74 in Volume I); plate intended for opposite page 334 has been bound opposite page 34. With six of seven first-issue points. Plates in mixed states. Originally issued in 20 parts from April 1836 to November 1837. Smith I:3. Gimbel A15. ""During the initial publication of Pickwick Papers several artists sold 'extra' illustrations to accompany each number… Additionally, many later editions of Pickwick Papers contain new illustrations; other later editions contain new illustrations along with reproductions of the illustrations from the first edition… Pickwick Papers has a long and complex illustration history"" (University of Washington). This copy testifies to the book's popularity among artists; the 32 extra illustrations (with 21 by Thomas Onwyn) were issued in eight monthly parts in 1837. Text and plates fine, mild toning to handsome morocco binding. A near-fine copy, very desirable extra-illustrated.

        Entrance to the Chapel of Ferdinand & Isabella.

      London. Hodgson & Graves. [ 1837]. Tinted lithograph with handcolor, mounted on thick card as issued, , image 16 x 11 inches on sheet size 22 x 17 3/4 inches. Overall soiling to support card, a few faint foxing spots in image, image overall bright and clean. This is the title page lithograph from the deluxe first edition of David Roberts' first published set of views "Picturesque Sketches in Spain Taken During the Years 1832 & 1833." Delicately handcolored colored at the time of publication, this edition, which was issued in a portfolio, cost more than double the standard edition. The plates were lithographed by many of the most talented lithographers of the day, this by T. Allom. Abbey (#152) notes that Roberts in fact worked on every stone, and that the views had an enormous sale, going through many printings. This view shows the gorgeous detail of the chapel entrance located in Granada, Spain. In the standard edition of the publication the wording of work's title was printed on the entrance door: in this deluxe edition this feature is not present, allowing the image to stand alone in its magnificence.

        Aperçu historique sur l'origine et le développement des méthodes en géométrie, particulièrement celles qui se rapportent à la géométrie moderne [and] Mémoire de géométrie sur deux principes généraux de la science, la dualité et l'homographie.

      Bruxelles: M. Hayez, 1837. A Classic in the History of Geometry. "The Apercu Historique was inspired by the question posed by the Royal Academy of Brussels in 1829: a philosophical examination of the different methods in modern geometry, particularly the method of reciprocal polars. Chasles submitted a memoir on the principles of duality and homography. He argued that the principle of duality, like that of homography, is based on the general theory of transformations of figures, particularly transformations in which the cross ratio is preserved, of which the reciprocal polar transformation is an example. The work was crowned in 1830, and the Academy ordered it published. Chasles requested permission to expand the historical introduction and to add a series of mathematical and historical notes, giving the result of recent researches. His books and almost all of his many memoirs are elaborations of points originally discussed in these notes." (DSB). In 'A History of Geometrical Methods' Coolidge writes: "The greatest contribution which Chasles made to projective geometry, and it certainly was great, was in the study of the cross ration, whether of collinear points or of concurrent lines, or yet of coaxel planes. We this in Notes IX and X of [his Apercu]. He discussed the six cross ratios of four elements of one of these forms, and this gives him a deeper insight into the meaning of an involution. In Note XV we find the theorem, which was later to play a vital role in the work of Steiner, that four points of a conic determine with any fifth point of that curve four lines having the same cross ration. ... Another fundamental idea developed by Chasles was homography, or the general linear transformation in the plane or in space. Here a point corresponds to a point, and points of a plane or line to points of a plane or line. Central projection and homology discussed by Poncelet are special cases of this. He added the invariance of cross ratios as part of his definition, not realizing that this invariance could be proved, ... I think we should give him credit for being the first to give a proper definition of these important transformations". The two works published as volume XI of the 'Mémoires couronnés par l'académie royale des sciences et belles-lettres de Bruxelles'. 4to (278 x 210 mm), contemporary calf, some light fosing toi titel pages, otherwise fine, pp [4],572;573-851 [1].

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club.

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1837. 2 volumes, octavo (221 x 140 mm). Early twentieth century dark green crushed half morocco by Root & Son, green cloth, titles and floral decoration to spine gilt in compartments, facsimile signature gilt to front covers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers, red silk page markers. Etched vignette title page, frontispiece, 41 plates by Robert Seymour, R. W. Buss, and H. K. Browne, an additional 46 plates by Thomas Onwhyn, 12 of which are handcoloured, 8 leaves of adverts bound at rear. Binder's and bookseller's stamps to endpaper versos. An excellent handsome set. First edition, early impression, bound in two volumes from parts, with the two Buss plates present (facing pages 69 and 74) and footnote to p. 9 which was repressed in later impressions. Bound with all plate varieties, including those by Buss, Phiz's replacements and the 'illegitimate' colour illustrations by Thomas Onwhyn. These additional plates were first published in eight monthly parts in 1837, a further set were discovered upon his death, and published in 1893. Dicken's did not appreciate these additions, referring in a letter of 13 July 1838 to the "singular vileness of the illustrations" (ODNB). This extra illustrated edition was handsomely bound by Root & Son for Charles E. Lauriat, the successful Bostonian bookseller. Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens's first novel, transformed the obscure journalist into England's most famous writer in a matter of months. The first monthly instalment was issued in an edition of 1,000 copies in April 1836. The book became a publishing sensation after the introduction of Sam Weller in chapter 10, the fourth instalment, issued in July 1836, after which the publishers reprinted the earlier instalments so that readers could catch up. For that reason, even in parts, copies are almost impossible to find in uniform first state. By the time the book was issued in November 1837, many textual corrections had been made. Booksellers often list numerous (and confusing) text points that might conceivably apply to a perfect set of Pickwick Papers as originally issued in parts, but all these points could never be found together in the issues in book form. The serial was originally intended to be primarily a vehicle for the cartoons of Robert Seymour, until he committed suicide after the first number was published. Robert William Buss then took over, but he was inexperienced in steel engraving and had to be replaced. The final choice, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), was to be Dickens's chosen collaborator for the next two decades. For later issues Phiz illustrated parts IV?XX, re-engraved the Seymour plates and entirely replaced the Buss plates.

        A Letter to the Right Honorable Lord Viscount Glenelg, Her Majesty's Secretary of State for the Colonies...

      London: Henry Stocking, 1837. Octavo, in the publisher's blind blocked navy cloth with gilt lettering. Fiery letters from the Australian magistrate and landholder John Bingle to Lord Glenelg, concerning his trial on the charge of cattle-stealing. Bingle had earlier clashed with the governor Sir Richard Bourke, who censured him for holding petty sessions for trying convicts at his rural residence. Bingle's first open letter to the Secretary of State for the Colonies concerned this matter and was published in Sydney in 1832. In the coming years Bingle continued to irritate Bourke, who ultimately removed him from the bench.The allegations were widely considered politically motivated and, although the charges were dismissed, news of the disgrace reached London before Bingle arrived in 1837 to deliver a petition to Parliament critical of Bourke's administration. Throughout the trial and its aftermath, Bingle enjoyed the support of the Sydney newspapers, which used the sham trial to criticise the governor. Light preliminary foxing, otherwise fine condition.

        Description des eaux minero-thermales et des etuves de l'ile d'Ischia [History of Healing Mineral Waters of Island Ischia]

      The Author, Naples 1837 - 3rd Edition in French of the famed physician of the Island of Ischia Jacques Etienne Chevalley (1801-1863), INSCRIBED by the author. Two Folding Maps as issued one of Ischia and one of Procida - a few have sold over the past 75 years but NONE with an inscription by the Author. 8 copies on OCLC mostly in France. The volume is an articulate description of mineral and thermal waters and the island of Ischia sources preceded by topographical signs, historical and archaeological. "Since Ischia has become the destination of so many Swiss holiday-makers in recent years, it might well be appropriate to rescue from oblivion a Swiss doctor for whom this island became an adopted home, and who was the spa-physician of international repute there for several decades. Indeed, one might reasonably claim that he closed that series of outstanding physicians with whose names the history of the thermal baths on the island is associated. If mention be made of Giovanni Elisio, to whom we owe the first description of the health-spas, which today are on everybody's lips, or of Giulio Jasolino, the Neapolitan doctor of the sixteenth century who helped to revive their reputation, or of Andrea D'Aloisio, whose "L'infermo istruito" represents the Ischian health-spa guide of the eighteenth century, then one can hardly fail to mention J.E. Chevalley de Rivaz, who was the representative physician on the island around the middle of the previous century. He was born in Vevey, in the canton Vaud, in 1801. As a son of well-off parents, he went to Paris in his teens in order to study medicine there. Involved, as he became, in the domestic political conflicts which at that time excited the populace under Louis xviii, he was compelled - the exact circumstances have not come down to us, unfortunately - to disappear for some time into a Trappist monastery, whose abbot not only gave him shelter but also took care of his further education. A qualified physician already in his twenty-first year, he was assigned to the French Legation in Naples, a circumstance which was decisive for his entire further career. Though he did return to Paris once, in 1827, so as to defend his thesis, which had meanwhile been completed, Naples and the gulf established a final hold over him, as over so many others who had come from the north. The young doctor at the Legation established a practice in Naples, and in Casamicciola near the Gurgitello spring, which had been praised by physicians in ancient days as "manus Dei, liquor celeste, ancora della salute" soon set up a sanatorium, which combined excellent medical care with a measure of comfort not to be found in any other place on the island. The gardens surrounding the "Maison de sante with their pergolas and orange trees - the latter a special treat to northern guests - bespoke the landlord's fondness of plants. From the benches in the garden you had an excellent view of the steep slopes of the Epomeo, the dark green veil of chestnut woods and the sea, the other islands and the coast of the mainland. The sanatorium not only offered the necessary equipment for diverse balneotherapeutic and other medical treatments - well-off guests used to have the spa waters taken to the house in those times - but also boasted elegantly furnished lounges and reading rooms. The book still survives today which bears the entries of the guests of the sanatorium from the year 1844 up to Chevalley's death, that is to say for nearly twenty years. Its yellowed pages reveal to us the Swiss doctor's illustrious and distinguished clientele, hailing from all parts of the globe, who usually stayed in the sanatorium for some time; often for two, three or even four months. Most numerous are the English, Americans and French and there is quite a sprinkling of Russians and Poles, but Rumanians, Belgians, Scandinavians, Swiss and Germans are also represented.
