        The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Of Nantucket

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1838. First edition. Near Fine. A lovely copy of the book, easily Near Fine, and likely one of the finest copies extant. Slight rubbing to the paper spine label with one pin-head sized hole, all lettering complete and legible, a few minor blemishes to the cloth. A few bookseller notations on the end papers (in pencil), mostly commenting on what a fine copy this is, otherwise as clean and fresh as you could hope for internally. Housed in a custom clamshell case. Poe's only novel - an under-appreciated classic. "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym" follows the dark adventures of a stowaway on board a New England whaling ship. Poe was drawn to the idea of writing a longer work because of the difficulty he was having sustaining a career with his short stories. Although Pym contains Poe's trademark mastery of the uncanny, he was also inspired by a number of non-fictional contemporary travel accounts of the South Seas and areas near the Antarctic. The novel's reception was tepid, but it would later be recognized as a hidden masterpiece that exerted a strong influence on both American literature and the literature of the fantastic. Pym is thought to have helped inspired Melville's Moby Dick - the works share some strong familiarities of theme and structure - as well as the author Jules Verne, who even wrote his own sequel to the work. In fact, the novel gained a great deal of respect abroad before American critics re-evaluated it. Baudelaire would translate it and Borges called it "Poe's greatest work." Lovecraft too was an admirer, and used many of its elements in his own story, "At The Mountains of Madness." The work appears on The Guardian's list of "100 Best Novels.". Near Fine.

        Oliver Twist: or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, first issue. (Author's name given only as "Boz" on all title pages and "Fireside" plate in the third volume. Upon review, Dickens quickly had his rightful name credited and a "Church" plate put at the end of Vol. III; it was too late for the earliest copies, such as this one, though.) Three full calf volumes with gilt tooling and lettering to spines and ruling to front and back covers, bound without half-titles or ads. Plates thoroughly foxed and darkened, text has much lighter foxing. Spine title labels chipped, nearly gone on the second volume. Four minor marginal wormholes in the set, none of which intrude on the text. Calf a bit scuffed and worn. The rare first appearance in book form of the enduringly-popular Victorian novel.

        Tai-O-Mah, A Musquakee Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. In excellent condition. 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. Also occasionally referred to as the "medicine man", Tai-O-Mah or Taimah, "Thunder" or "He Who Shakes the Rocks" (c. 1790 - 1830) was an esteemed Fox warrior and chief who maintained an amicable relationship with the United States throughout his life. In 1824, he traveled to Washington as a member of the Sac and Fox delegation, led by General William Clark, which signed a treaty ceding their lands in northern Missouri and the southeastern part of Iowa to the federal government. It was during this visit to the capital that Charles Bird King painted the chief's picture after which McKenney's print was made. Taimah was also a leader of the influential Midewiwin or Great Medicine Society, a secret shamanistic society with religious affiliations that McKenney likened to the Freemasons. It is interesting to note given the calm composure which pervades his features that Taimah was suffering from tuberculosis at the time the portrait was being done. He is buried in Des Moines County, Iowa. 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.

        Stum-Ma-Nu, a Flat-Head Boy

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. 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. Stumanu (?1818- 1839) was of the Chinook, or Flathead (as designated by the whites), tribe that inhabited the region north of the Columbia River in present day Washington (then Oregon Territory). According to McKenney, the Chinook were "a very interesting people. They are honest, hospitable, and kindly disposed towards the whites. They excel most other Indians in simplicity and frankness of character." Stumanu, who, living on the Columbia, was an expert fisherman, was educated at the Indian school founded by Dr. John M'Loughlin, "Father of Oregon". Still young, Stumanu was taken east by a missionary in a fundraising effort. There, in New York City in 1839, he contracted an unknown illness and died. 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.

        Bella oleografia originale raffigurante una scena dell'opera "Tosca" di Giacomo Puccini. inizi XX secolo.

      - Oleografia originale in formato cm.53x78, raffigurante la scena della morte di Scarpia per mano di Floria Tosca alla fine del secondo atto dell'opera pucciniana. Gradevole policromia, in cornice coeva lavorata a mano, in formato cm.74x99, con cimasa. Insieme di notevole impatto visivo. L?oleografia è una stampa eseguita da matrici di pietra litografica, generalmente marna calcarea, mediante l'utilizzo di inchiostri grassi che, una volta asciutti, mantengono una lucidità tipica del colore a olio. Il procedimento consiste nella sovrapposizione di più immagini di diversi colori tracciate su lastre di pietra diverse: il prodotto finito può dare quindi l?illusione di essere un vero dipinto. Nata nel 1838, la tecnica oleografica permetterà un'ampia diffusione di immagini religiose, storiche, operistiche o popolari, grazie ad una capillare distribuzione casa per casa, svolta principalmente da venditori ambulanti, soprattutto trentini. 3000 gr.

        An untitled manuscript map of Cumberland County, New Jersey, and the surrounding area

      [No place but Burlington, Iowa, 1838. Pen, ink and watercolour map of Cumberland County, with the properties of D. Parvin and D. Harris, and numerous towns located, the demarcation line between marsh and solid ground marked, and the routes and names of all the main rivers and creeks shown, some roads marked in pencil, and the route between Salem, Salem Co., and the tip of Cape May marked with a purple dotted line. Sheet size: 16 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches. An attractive map of Cumberland County, in southern New Jersey The Parvin property is identified as being on the southern bank of the Cohansey River in Fairfield Township. The Harris property is in adjoining Downe Township. These are the only two individual properties identified on the map, suggesting that the map was either compiled for or by a member of the Parvin or Harris family. This map was loosely inserted in an 1838 edition of Bradford's Illustrated Atlas , inscribed on the title "Theodore Sutton Parvin, Burlington, Iowa, August 15/ [18]38", and an examination of the map of New Jersey in the atlas shows that the Cumberland County area was squared up for enlargement. All of which gives a source and probable author of the map. Parvin has added some names and geographical features in addition to those shown on the Bradford engraved map. Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. He graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of Robert Lucas, the first governor of the Iowa Territory, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian. ( Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society , [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871).

        An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical Statistical, and Historical, of the United States, and the adjacent countries

      Boston & Cincinnati: stereotyped and printed by Fulsom, Wells & Thurston of Cambridge, Mass. for Weeks, Jordan & Co. of Boston and Edward Lucas & Co. of Cincinnati, 1838. Folio. (19 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches). Engraved additional title with integral hand-coloured decorative pictorial surround, 39 hand-coloured engraved maps and town-plans (34 maps [one double-page], 5 town-plans), by G.W.Boynton and others. Contemporary light brown half morocco over embossed cloth-covered boards, brown morocco title label on the upper cover, lettered in gilt, the spine divided into five compartments by wide semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt tooling, marbled endpapers Provenance: Theodore Sutton Parvin (1817-1901, Burlington, Iowa, inscription dated 15 August 1838 on additional title) A fine copy of "one of the first American general atlases to supplement the maps with lengthy geographical descriptions" (Ristow), with detailed maps of the 28 States, and including an excellent early map of the Republic of Texas. Martin and Martin, in their entry on Bradford's 1835 map of Texas, also note that "Bradford published a completely new atlas in 1838, in a larger format, and the map of Texas it contained was even more clearly patterned on [Stephen Fuller] Austin's [Map of Texas, published in Philadelphia in 1830]." It was one of the first maps of Texas as a Republic to appear in an atlas. The atlas is made up of a general map of North America, two maps of Canada, a folding map of the United States, 28 maps of States, a map of the Republic of Texas, a map of the islands of the Caribbean and five town-plans of eight U.S. cities (Washington, New Orleans, Louisville and Cincinnati on one sheet, and single sheet plans of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore). Unlike many atlases of the period, the present work includes extensive text (170pp. in total). Each engraving is accompanied by explanatory articles on the history, economics and geography of the area, as well as a great deal of contemporary statistical information. The provenance is particularly interesting: Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. "He was graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of the first governor of Iowa Territory, Robert Lucas, in 1838, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian" (Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society, [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871). Le Gear L33; cf.

        Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton; formerly the Pavilion: executed by the command of King George the fourth, under the superintendence of John Nash ... To which is prefixed a history of the palace, by ... Brayley

      London: J.B. Nichols & Son, also sold by R. Loder and James Taylor of Brighton, 1838. Folio. (21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Wood-engraved title vignette. 31 plates and plans after A. Pugin and others (20 present in two states, giving a plate total of 51): some aquatint, some hand-coloured, some line etchings, some on india paper mounted, some mounted. Expertly bound to style in half black straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in 8 compartments, decoratively tooled in gilt A unique copy of this valuable record of one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements of the early-19th century. John Nash was largely responsible for adapting Henry Holland's Marine Pavilion at Brighton for the Prince of Wales. Nikolaus Pevsner ( The Buildings of England , Harmondsworth, 1951-74) notes that Nash "kept the shape of Holland's building entirely and only threw his fancy dress over it, and he added as outer pavilions larger rooms than any so far." During the 1820s, acting on a further commission from his Royal client, Nash asked his pupil Augustus Pugin to produce a series of drawings and from these and other drawings a series of plates were produced. These were published in a suite containing both coloured aquatints and uncoloured line etchings under the title The Royal Pavilion at Brighton . The publication methods of this lavish production were somewhat haphazard, resulting in copies of the book not conforming with the list of plates. After Nash's death in 1835, the London publishers J. B. Nichols and Son acquired the plates and were commissioned to print Edward Wedlake Brayley's Careful Survey of the Palace , which they published in 1836. In 1838 they combined Brayley's text with the uncoloured outline etchings, and published Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton , dedication to Queen Victoria. This second issue of the plates is arguably a new work, in that for the first time the plates and text are combined. The work was issued complete with uncoloured outline etchings and text; however, the publishers offered separately-issued coloured aquatints, finished by hand and mounted on card, "to be bound with the Work at the option of the purchaser." Besides including some of these extra, and desirable, coloured plates, this copy includes variants of the uncoloured plates. Abbey describes some, but the present copy is unusual in the large number of different uncoloured and colour-printed variants. Abbey Scenery 62; Tooley 338; Lowndes II, 1651; cf. Fischer, New Berlin Kat., 1977, vol. I (Baukunst England) 2344.; cf. Brunet IV, 14.

        OLIVER TWIST; Or the Parish Boy's Progress

      Richard Bentley, London 1838 - First edition in three volumes in the original publisher's fine diaper cloth with arabesque designs on the boards. First issues with Boz on the title pages (not "Charles Dickens") and with the "fireside plate" in volume 3. Bound with all half-titles and ads as required by Smith. A set that is a little better than Good, but not much. Amateur repairs to the spines of all three volumes. Internal contents generally clean although with scattered foxing, most noticeable near the plates. Dickens' second novel, "Oliver Twist," is a dark and biting work, but one that is balanced with Oliver's indefatigable innocence and charm. Often cited as the first Victorian novel to feature a child protagonist, it was developed as a social commentary and a call for improving the conditions of London's destitute and orphan children. And it was immensely successful, both as a novel filled with memorable characters and also as a work prompting much needed reform. Today it remains high within the pantheon of Victorian literature and is a work that has been successfully adapted to both the stage and screen. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph letter signed ("R. Schumann").

      [Leipzig], 11. II. 1838. - 8vo. 1 p. A fine letter from the difficult engagement years, written to Clara's stepmother and Robert Schumann's future mother-in-law Clementine Wieck, inquiring whether "Madam Wieck" knows anything new about Clara's approaching appointment as Imperial and Royal Chamber Virtuoso by the Austrian Emperor: "Yesterday, Count Zerbst, a distant relative of the Austrian envoy, visited me and told me, that his lord, the Prince of Schönburg, took a great interest in the matter and that the appointment was imminent. I can imagine your great joy. But please do me the favour and let me know if you hear anything more specific so that I can have it inserted in the journal [.]". - Austria's highest musical award was bestowed on Clara on March 15th during her concert tour in Vienna - an honour all the more remarkable for her being such a young artist, as well as a foreigner. It is, therefore, little surprise that Robert Schumann wished to see the fact announced in the "Neue Zeitschrift für Musik", which he edited from 1834 to 1844. - Noticeable browning; some brownstaining.

The 2 text volumes with soiling to extremities and book-blocks with a clean split down the middle (still intact and nothing missing. Spines with nicks and chips and top of spine on volume 2 lacking small piece of paper affecting author's name. Atlas-volume lacking paper on spine (but sewing still holding tight) and 5x2 cm of outer margin of front wrapper. Overall a fine and clean set in the original condition. [Vol. 1:] XVIII, 678; [Vol. 2:] (4), 864 pp. [Atlas-vol.:] (4) + 27 engraved plates (1 folding).. First edition, in extremely rare original condition - uncut, unopened, and in the original wrappers -, of this seminal first modern textbook of psychiatry. With the present work, Esquirol was the first to apply statistical methods in the clinical study of madness, famously making the first distinction between hallucinations and illusions. Togeher with Pinel, he founded the French school of psychiatry; - "Esquirol really represents the beginning of all classification in psychiatry." (A Historical Dictionary of Psychiatry). The accompanying atlas constitutes the first important iconography of the insane."He published Des maladies mentales (Mental Maladies) in 1838, only two years before his death. In that treatise, Esquirol tries to classify different types of mental disorders. Chapter VIII is entitled "De la lypémanie ou mélancolie," and tries to rephrase and to medicalize the concept of melancholy. Esquirol replaces "melancholy" with a term that will shape mental alienations studies for a long time: monomania. Esquirol creates the term lypemania to signify a type of depressive monomania. Lypemania is hereditary, and affects subjects with "un tempérament mélancolique." (Brown University Library). Jean-Étienne Esquirol (1772-1840) was one of Philippe Pinel's students at Salpêtrière. Economically financed by Pinel (father of what today is referred to as moral therapy and instrumental in the development of a more humane psychological approach to psychiatric patients), Esquirol, in 1801, established a private asylum - maison de santé. Like Pinel, Esquirol believed in the positive effects of isolation from the outside world and felt that this would contribute greatly to distracting the patient from the previously unhealthy passions that had ruled his or her life. Esquirol put into operation Pinel's notion of the therapeutic community: patients and physicians lived as community members in a psychiatric setting. Whereas Pinel believed that manic forms of mental illness were caused by the stomach, Esquirol adopted Gall's theory of cerebral localization, and believed that all forms of mental illness could be located in the brain. Esquirol believed that mental disorders resulted from unbalanced passions, and he urged the government to create appropriate structures for the curing of the mentally ill which - mainly because of the present publication - resulted in the national law of 1838 that instituted departmental asylums for all needy French mental patients, it is still in force today.Esquirol's 'Maladies mentales', remained a basic psychiatric text for over half a century and is still today regarded as one of the fundamental works in modern psychiatry.Garrison-Morton 4798Norman 724

        Elements of Geology.

      London: John Murray 1838 - First edition. 12mo. (xx), 543, (1) pp. Contemporary black full calf, spine with raised bands, red gilt lettered label, all edges and endpapers marbled, ownership inscription of one "G[eorge] R[eader] Klugh" to the front flyleaf dated 1839. Coloured frontispiece and 294 figures set into the text. Repairs to the head of the joints, some rubbing to the spine, else very good. Preceded by his "Principles of Geology", Lyell intended the "Elements" to be a more accessible description of the science. He sought to "explain his conception of geology at an introductory level, and thereby propagate it more widely. [the work] reviewed the whole stratigraphical record, from the most recent formations back to the most ancient, interpreting it in terms of the 'uniformity' of terrestrial processes through time" (ODNB).

        Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuerfundenen künstlichen Fußes, zum Ersatze des Ober- und Unterschenkels, . (Sp.713-736, 2 gefalt. lith. Foliotafeln mit 30 Figuren).

      - Kunst- und Gewerbebl. Bay., 24/1-52. - München, November 1838, 4°, XVII, (1), Sp.681-744, 3 gefalt. lith. Tafeln, Pappband der Zeit; feines Exemplar. Erstdruck dieser "Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuerfundenen künstlichen Fußes, zum Ersatz des Ober- und Unterschenkels, von Margarethe Caroline Eichler aus Berlin; worauf sich dieselbe am 13. Jänner 1835 ein Privilegium auf 10 Jahre im Königreiche Bayern ertheilen ließ." - - Beschreibung der von der Berliner Bandagistin 'Demoiselle' Margarethe Caroline Eichler erfundenen Prothese. Sie erhielt am 23. November 1833 ein Patent zum Verkauf von künstlichen Beinen. - - Hier gibt Sie eine ungekürzte Beschreibung und anschauliche Darstellung der Prothesen, die leichter, gelenkiger und haltbarer waren als die herkömmlichen. - - Margarethe Karoline Eichler stellte Normen für den Bau von Kunstbeinen auf, die nicht nur internationale Beachtung fanden, sondern für lange Zeit auch als richtungsweisend von der Medizin anerkannt wurden. Die von ihr konstruierten Mechanischen Knie- und Fußgelenkteile stellten interessante technische Lösungen dar. Frau Eichler begann dann später auch (1836) künstliche Hände aus dünnem, federhartem getriebenen Neusilberblech herzustellen." - Die Tafeln zeigen in 34 Figuren den Aufbau und Mechanismus des künstlichen Beines nebst Fuß. - - "Hat auch die Eichler in Bezug auf den äusseren Mechanismus ihrer künstlichen Beine von anderen bereits bekannt gewordenen Vorrichtungen der Art das Beste entlehnt, so ist doch das Princip des inneren Mechanismus, namentlich dessen Einfachheit, Anordnung, Zugänglichkeit und Zuverlässigkeit ganz neu und eigenthümlich. Denn die schon von Ballif benutzten Spiralfedern wirkten nicht durch Ausdehnung, sondern durch Zusammenziehung, auch nicht auf zwei Gelenke zugleich und hielten einander nicht gegenseitig in Schranken, weshalb deren Actionen auch zu plötzlich und gewaltsam erfolgen mussten. Die von Heine angewandten Schneckenfedern und Zugriemen, bei welchen das Princip eines mit der Muskelaction übereinstimmenden Antagonismus schon berücksichtigt worden war, ermangelten wieder der einfachen Construction, zugänglichen Lage und sicheren Befestigung, um selbst den Absichten ihres eigenen Erfinders ganz entsprechen zu können. Dabei erklärt die Eichler aber doch in ihrer Schrift "weit davon entfernt zu sein, behaupten zu wollen, ihr künstlicher Fuss sei keiner weiteren Vervollkommnung fähig'; allein, sie fügt auch hinzu, dass bis jetzt gewiss noch kein zweckmässigerer erfunden und dargestellt worden sei - bis zu ihrer Zeit gewiss nicht. - - Die Beschaffungskosten, welche 30 bis 40 Thaler betragen, sind zwar bedeutender als bei den künstlichen Füssen von Dornblüth, aber geringer als die der künstlichen Füsse v. Rühl's und Ballif's. Die Reparaturkosten können bei der einfachen und dauerhaften Construction nur sehr unbedeutend gewesen sein und sich, wie bei der künstlichen Hand der Eichler, ebenfalls nur auf den Wiederersatz einer Spiralfeder oder Darmsaite und demnächst noch auf die Erneuerung der Bepolsterung ausgedehnt haben, was bei der Zugänglichkeit des Mechanismus leicht und augenblicklich ausführbar war, wenn man sich von diesen Gegenständen einen kleinen Vorrath hielt. Endlich verdient noch der Vorschlag der Eichler, dem Amputationsstumpfe durch das Umlegen einer Binde ein dickeres Fleischpolster zu verschaffen und ihn so vor Druck und vor schmerzhaften Hautspannungen zu bewahren, alle Anerkennung und eine sorgfältige Beachtung bei dem Gebrauche eines jeden künstlichen Gliedes. - Das Gewicht des künstlichen Oberschenkels betrug mit allem Zubehör 4 Pfund 15 Loth, das des Unterschenkels 3 Pfund 17 Loth."

        General Post Office, Sydney

      Sydney. Preserved on tissue; a few age marks in upper sky area but generally very good.. Pencil with white body colour. 68 x 27cm, paper size approx 24 x 30 cms. inscribed 'P.M. Postmaster James Ramond Esq. P.O. Sydney George St 1838', mounted. This most interesting drawing dated 1838 is of the Post Office in Sydney and bears pencil lines in a manner that suggests it is the preparatory drawing done by James Carmichael for the engraving of the same subject used as an illustration in "Picture of Sydney". Published in 1838, this book is one of the best early Sydney guides for emigrants and the artist John Carmichael was also the main engraver of the illustrations. The original drawing offered differs in detail to the published engraved version which strongly identifies it as the preparatory artist's drawing. Extra details are many, but seen particularly in the placement of people walking down George Street and in architectural features not present in the published work. The drawing provides most intriguing details of daily central Sydney life; a little girl rolls a hoop, a dog runs down the middle of the street whilst two most elegantly dressed ladies stroll past a uniformed soldier and a gentleman in a top hat. Until a recent scholarly article published in Australiana (November 2015) by Karen Eaton, little was known about John Carmichael (1803 - 1857). From Karen Eaton's research we now know that he arrived in Sydney in 1825 'without family, with little more than his engraving tools, a modest bundle of personal belongings, and most likely one or two letters of introduction'.Few of his original works have survived and he is 'notable for having been one of the earliest free emigrant artists to pursue a lifelong professional career in New South Wales, albeit precariously' (Dictionary of Australian Artists p. 135).

      [Arizpe, Sonora, 1838. Minute wear to edges. Near fine. An important Mexican political broadsheet and an early Sonora imprint. Of particular note is the juxtaposition of Santa Anna's return from Washington following his capture by Sam Houston with the events of Tacubaya that began the so-called "Pastry War." Tacubaya, a small section of Mexico City, was home to a French pastry chef who complained to French authorities that some Mexican officers had damaged his shop. Other foreign nationals soon issued similar complaints, prompting the French government to send its fleet to Veracruz in the wake of Mexico's failure to provide redress. The year-long conflicted became known as the "Pastry War," and Santa Anna led the Mexican counter-effort. He re-established himself as a national hero through his bravery, even losing a leg in the process. The document reflects the mildly insurgent tone of the newly appointed Sonorese governor, Gen. Jose Urrea, and expresses Sonora's increasing hesitancy to follow the imperialist tendencies of the federal government. At this point Arizona was part of Sonora. Quite rare. OCLC locates only two copies.

        TELEORAMA NO. 1 [Tunnel Peep-Show Concertina-Style]

      A charming, three-dimensional pull-out peep-show, which unfolds in concertina fashion. With 8-hand-colored plates depicting images of children, scenes of animals, dancing couples, and a horse and carriage against the last panel serving as a back-drop of a country house. The peep-show is near fine; the card case has some wear and soiling; with a title label. On the rear board is the bookseller's label of "S. Hart & Son at their Fancy Stationary and Perfumery Store" on Third Street in Philadelphia". There is a penned gift inscription to Moses Brown, Jr. Presented by his dearly beloved mother, 12m. 25. 1838." Undated, but probably c. 1830. A lovely early optical toy.

      - This extremely rare separately-issued map of the Middle East was made as a private commission by a group of Munich grandees led by Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert, a prominent intellectual, especially to commemorate Duke Max in Bayern’s 1838 excursion to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon. The Duke was a much-beloved, larger-than-life figure whose eccentric, yet kind persona and exciting adventures captured the imagination of both Bavarians and those beyond. In 1838, he led a party on a trip of cultural exploration to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon, whereupon he gained extraordinary experiences, returning to Munich with stunning antiquities. Curiously, his official 1839 account of his trip was not illustrated by a map, so in 1845, Schubert et al. stepped in to make up for this oversight, producing the present fine work. Geographically, the map is highly accurate, featuring an especially meticulous labeling of regions and sites, employing transliterations of Arabic names (the table below the title also translates some Arabic geographical terms into German). The territories still controlled by the Ottoman Empire are coloured pink, while lands under the control of the Khedivate of Egypt (an autonomous vassal of the Ottomans which ruled from 1805) is coloured yellow. The itinerary of the Duke Max in Bayern’s 1838 trip to Egypt and the Levant is shown, by way of the tracks of his ship sailing in the Mediterranean and the names of the places he visited underlined by orange manuscript lines. It shows that the Duke sailed from Europe into Alexandria, Egypt, and then proceeded up the Nile to Cairo and the Pyramids of Giza, and from there stopping at numerous places en route to ‘Theben’ (Thebes), reaching as far south as ‘Waddi Halfa’ (Wadi Halfa), Nubia (Sudan). From there his party descended the Nile before entering Palestine (Israel), where they visited numerous locations, notably Jerusalem, ‘Jafa’ (Jaffa) and ‘Akku’ (Acre). From there, they travelled to Lebanon, reaching as far north as Beirut, before sailing back to Alexandria, before heading back to Europe. Duke Max in Bayern Duke Maximilian Joseph in Bavaria (1808 – 1888), popularly known as "Max in Bayern," was a member of the junior branch of the House of Wittelsbach. He is perhaps best known as the father of Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who was affectionately known as "Sisi". He was also an adventurer, an antiquarian, and perhaps the era’s foremost promoter of Bavarian folk music, endearing him to the public. He is also known for establishing and tastefully improving several magnificent residences in Bavaria. In 1838, the Duke led a party on an expedition of antiquarian and cultural discovery to Egypt and the Holy Land. While the region had long had a legendary place in Western culture, recently revived, such an enterprise was still considered an ambitious, exotic and dangerous endeavour. Notable aspects of the trip included the occasion when Max and his companions climbed the Great Pyramid of Gaza and proceeded to yodel in true Alpine style! Max also bought several child slaves from the Cairo market, and promptly gave them their freedom. He proved to have exquisite taste in antiquities, purchasing several mummies, statues and architectural fragments, including pieces from the famous Temple of Dendur (objects which were taken back to Bavaria). Later, in Jerusalem, Max paid for the restoration of the Church of the Flagellation on the Via Dolorosa. Shortly upon his return to Bavaria, Max wrote an entertaining account of his trip, Wanderung nach dem Orient im Jahre 1838 (Munich: Georg Franz, 1839). It is considered a classic of German and Middle Eastern travel literature, although a notable drawback was that it lacked a map of the itinerary of the voyage. Schubert, Wenng & the Circumstances of the Map’s Production While the circumstances of the production of the present map are not documented, the story can be pieced together. Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert (1780 - 1860) was a close frie
